2011 | The Year That Was

2011 was a brilliant year. I loved every second of it. Looking back now, I’m realising just how far I traveled and how many incredible places I’ve been, both here in Australia and overseas. I’ve met some amazing people on the way and wouldn’t change a single thing.

Here’s my journey through 2011!

It started with a bang!

Sydney Photography: New Years Fireworks

Followed by a few days in Fiji to celebrate my 29th birthday (stay tuned for a Fiji wedding in June 2012!!)

I helped Mish Koh with this gorgeous wedding in Centennial Park & The Rocks

The Fisherman & I headed overseas again for 8 magical nights in Thailand – fishing, snorkeling, kayaking and a little lazing by the pool!

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, these little fellas need no introduction – I caught up with my sister & twin nephews a bunch of times, including their first ever trip to the beach.

Finally, the year wrapped up with a Destination Elopement at Ayers Rock! I really hope it was the first of many.

As the sun sets for the last time in 2011, I sometimes can’t believe I get to be so lucky to do this for a living.

A special thank you to all my clients, you’ve made 2011 so much more than I’d hoped. Thanks also to my photographer friends for inviting me along on to share in your own journeys.

Cheers to a bigger and better 2012 :)
