Jess and ShaneSouth Coast Maternity Sessionsouth coast maternity

Jess and I met on the first day of year 7 at Loreto Kirribilli where we went to school. We sat next to each other as homeroom buddies, so to document this milestone for her and her love Shane was incredible. I drove to the South Coast and they showed me one of their favourite spots where Shane grew up. I noticed Jess had some ink on the back of her arm, and when I asked her what it meant she said ‘us’ in Italian. So here’s to celebrating the us that is you and Shane, and the baby growing inside you.

Katie and Andrew say ‘I Do’ at Gunners Barracks

One of my favourite parts of a wedding are the speeches. I get to see into the couples lives that led them to make a lifetime vow to one another. It’s a special treat to see their parents up there, speaking animatedly of embarrassing childhood tales, ending with a story or two of just how special their child is. It’s heart-bursting material. I almost always leave with a new philosophy to go by so I want to tell you what touched me with this particular wedding.

Katie’s dad got up and after mentioning all her achievements he finished off with a story about a lesson his daughter had taught him. In times of stress, Katie always said “Don’t waste a worry”.
It doesn’t sound like much til you think about it. That perhaps, in life, you get a jar of feelings similar to a pack of Allen’s lollies (on a side note, please read this very funny complaint to Allen’s about their lack of variety). And in this jar of feelings, you only got a few ‘worries’.
When you think about it that way “Don’t waste a worry” becomes such a wise attitude. That we have to use our ‘worries’ sparingly as we only get a few. It is a seed to plant a more positive and trusting outlook to life, and a mentality many people are only able to have in retrospect.

Here are some of my favourite photos of the lovely Katie and Andrew, followed by a slideshow of their sweet day.

Much love and blessings to you both!
