Apr 2015 – Ewan and Fabian’s Wedding

This month Ewan and Fabian were married at the charming St Leonard’s Gardens in Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore.

This weekend was my first time competing at kempo in over 10 years! I got to judge for the first time and photograph as well. What a day! We were all exhausted by the end of it but it was great. There was a very high standard of competition and sportmanship, fantastic to see. The…

We gave up on trying to order food…

Piha

Fun trip to Piha last night with Lauren, Andy and Nicky. Piha is one of the most beautiful, wild, moody and dramatic beaches in New Zealand. We’re so lucky to live close to it. And the sunset just went on and on!    

Raglan – Waikato, New Zealand

A wonderful three nights in Raglan with my two girls and my Mum. Mum lives in New Plymouth so it’s a great halfway meeting point from Auckland. We stayed in the magical Rua Totara – a rustic little original bach oozing with charm and with its own resident lizards.

Matarangi, Coromandel Peninsula
