Back in May I saw an ad on TV that excited me more than any ad in my entire life excited me. Tim McGraw was coming to Australia…tickets on sale the next week. Being the country girl I am (the Bogan River literally runs through my home town!) I squealed like a 14 year old and begged The Fisherman to go with me. I think he was embarrassed enough at my outburst in the privacy of our own home that there was no way he was going with THAT Kellee anywhere.
So I called my sister in Brisbane to see if she’d come too, to which she said yes, but where? The Brisbane concert was a Thursday, Sydney a Tuesday…so we decided to make a weekend of it & head to Melbourne instead for the Sunday one!
Having never really been to Melbourne before, I decided to recruit a local to show me the sights & asked fellow photographer Gemma Carr if she’d like to go on a photo safari with me. I was so excited when she said yes :)
One of my favourite things about being a photographer is getting to know all the other awesome photographers out there. Gemma is quite possibly the cutest person in the world. One day she tweeted that I made her smile so big her ears moved upwards! If you’ve ever met Gem in person, you’ll know that’s a huge compliment coz this gal doesn’t stop smiling!!
We spent the first few hours at the Brighton Beach Boxes. I so wish we had a location like this in Sydney…they’re so fun!
Without further ado, I give you Miss Gem!
Thanks for hanging out with me all morning Gem; it was so great to finally meet you in person :)
PS The concert was so good I actually cried with delight!
