hello gorgeous.

hello again world. i have come out from hiding. it's spring! so yes, i'm not hibernating anymore hopefully. we are moving into our new house this weekend, i'm sooooo excited! as much as its been great and we've been so blessed to be able to live with the in laws.... i think i'm ready to have my house trashed for the day so kids can do whatever they want, and i'll just clean up at night. haha.

so i suppose moving country isn't as easy as 1,2,3...
i didn't take into account that emotionally you could go up and down so much... and you could say i'm so homesick. hmmm, yes my friends.. i do miss you all! i need to make new friends....

to cheer you all up, here is my recent shoot after not having mr. Ay-Jay out of his camera bag for months.... ta da!!! hope you like them. aren't they sweet?

happy winter day

hello everyone! yup, i am indeed still alive... amongst the cold fluey season, moving country, making friends, finding schools, house hunting, working part time at a timber yard, and editing weddings.... i am well and truely missing my photography and missing this blog.

New Zealand is beautiful. winter has been cold... and snowy (yes... that i do need to blog! -- it snowed the second week we arrived!), still crashing at the in laws (loving it and loving not having to cook everyday)...

I promise i'll be good and do some more blog... my hubby just went pass and clapped his hand saying bravo to me for doing a blog after so long! oh my.

here are some pics of a gorgeous little family i knew back in the Gold Coast.
don't you just want to chomp her cheeks? hehehehe. i did. once... (with her mommy looking at me weirdly hahaha)

autumn morning in Christchurch

Good morning, Wednesday and the world! it's a working day for this one momma here. Dropped the kids of to nanna's place and she's working in front of the computer and every now and then, she'll ponder and dream about life peering through her window. sunshine (which could be quite deceiving with all the cold wind) and all the pretty leaves!!!!

oh, hello there too little birdie!

1 + 1 + 1

one and a bit more week until I say bye bye to Australia! so sad... we've made so many great friends who are like family to us and gosh... i think one thing i'm VERY concerned about is.... THE COLD! why the heck are we moving in the middle of winter? seriously! 

today's been such a nice weather. a bit cloudy and even the rainbow decided to say hello.

here is a sneak peak of today's session. My good friend Sarah & her joker hubby are having a little princess soon! yay as my mom would say "wow... dragon year! BEST YEAR to have babies!" haha
so peeps, if you're thinking of having a baby, you've still got a little chance to still make it in dragon year. keep workin' it! haha xo

my kitchen helper

there she goes sitting down on her "helping spot". Every time after we finished the mess seems to accumulate around that spot.
My little princess, can't believe she's so grown up. love her to bits.

Sorry about the slack on posting blogs. Life has been so full on with moving country. Golly gosh! and it's not easy being apart from the hubby (who seems to pick up my slack during wedding season big time quite immensely)

Our new pad // temporarily

So here is the big news... we are MOVING to New Zealand!!!!!

yup. i've said it!

we have packed our whole life away in a container and it'll be ready to ship across the Tasman sea soon soon soon. We are temporarily living the Gold Coast life right in the heart of Surfers Paradise! sooo nice. the kids loves it. beach right across from the hotel, seaworld is just 5 minutes drive, take away food around the corner... and as for me, i've had bubble tea 3 days in a row! heaven!!! haha

oh, that's right. so yes... we don't take this decision lightly but we are so excited about the adventure God has put right in the front for us! I am still coming back to the Gold Coast for photography so don't worry to those who have booked their wedding and family pics... cos i'll be back for them. yay! *really... it's an excuse for me to come back to see all of your beautiful faces xxx
