All I need to add is my little one, she is going to love being the Pilot!

While I only have had one flying lesson, deep behind the goal just past my immediate ones on my list…It was a privilege to be invited for Christmas in July, dine at a beautiful home of one of the pilot’s home in Newham along with some amazing courageous women pilots from Australian Woman Pilots’ Association.

Thank you to Peta (President of The Australian Women Pilots’ Association) for your kind invitation. A huge Thank to Kathy Mexted (An aspiring local writer and photographer in Newham for opening up your doors to your beautiful home with an incredible backyard! A view of hanging Rock. For putting on a beautiful lunch for us all and of course your hospitality and hard work you put in over 2 days, a fun and inspiring day. And of course thank you to Dennis for looking after us and ensuring we all had more food than we could eat and omg cleaning up! Thank you to all the Woman pilots, it’s an honour to be amongst aw inspiring women.

While I am still dreaming the dream as a travelling photographer, right now I remain a passenger, not a bad deal I think! but you never know what is around the corner or airport. I am the pilot and leading lady of my own life after all.

Signature Mortgage Services.


I just love when people walk into my studio and just own their shoot even before it’s begun, quietly confident and humble all at the same time….and a few wise cracks while his wife had her photos take, makes for a great fun shoot. Did you 99.99% all ask the same question just before their shoot? “ok, what do you want me to do?” which always brings a quiet smile to myself. Did you know that people naturally stand showing their best side? it’s a thing, look it up…… And that’s where we begin our shoot….

Horby Lighthouse, Watsons Bay

You can purchase here.Horby-Lighthouse-Watsons-Bay

Sometimes things don’t go according to plan so you just go with the flow, ironically I accidentally stumbled upon a lighthouse. While standing at the train station i asked a random how to get to a location, in conversation he mentioned Watsons Bay, I quickly googled it and changed my direction once I saw how pretty it was, a couple of stops to Circular Quay, a short and pleasant fairy ride over to Watsons Bay, I followed the South Head Heritage trail and there it was, A lighthouse that looked like it belonged in a fairytale. A serene few hours exploring, watching waves, smiling, enjoying the winter sunshine, short chats along the way. As I leaned close to the edge still within safety a lady asked me a question…I replied with “I wasn’t meant to be here today”, she said ‘clearly you were by the smile on your face’. I guess I was…

I even stumbled on a nudist beach oops 🙂

Beautiful Bolivia


There are not enough words in the English language to describe how spectacular this park is! You can purchase this image here, for more click here.

Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve of Andean Fauna (Reserva Nacional de Fauna Andina Eduardo Abaroa; Spanish acronym: REA) is located in Sur Lípez Province. Situated in the far southwestern region of Bolivia, it is the country’s most visited protected area. Established in 1973, the national park is named after Eduardo Abaroa (1838–1879), the Bolivian war hero of the 19th century. I also heard while I was there, the Salvador Dali Dessert named after the famous painted, his painting inspired by the amazing landscape, I completely agree, soul inspiring indeed.

When one needs to restore balance, one revisits moments of complete serenity, just spent the last 6 hours in Bolivia, well almost….reflecting on one of my pillars of strengths, just a small part of what makes me tick and makes me me.
It was pretty cold and was blessed enough to watch an incredible sunrise, while I wasn’t planning of going into the hot springs due to no bathers, well, i can’t resist water….i don’t think anyone really noticed I was wearing my underwear…as warm as soup and just as soothing..

Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia


Salar De Uyuni a rather large mirror I have ever seen, incredible reflections on the salt flats, apparently the largest in the world, Heck of a journey to get here although well worth the trip. The Perfect way to end the day of a 3 day tours, A magical sunset. A 3 day tour is approximately 100 USD, including accommodation, some meals, sharing with 6 people in a 4wd, nothing flash although a great way to get around on a budget.                      You can purchase this image and more here.  Bolivia, Nikon D810
