Look how far we’ve come:


A little late but Merry Christmas to everyone :)

Christmas this year marks one year since i first opened my eyes to the world of photography with an SLR. It was love at first sight. And all i can say is wow, and thankyou.

Enjoy the select few snaps of our quiet Christmas.

And hey in the New Year, I’ll be back on track with posting, for sure. I miss you all,

K xx



- Note: yes, that is me in the reflection…(it’s my new way of ‘getting into’ the photograph)



I don’t think Mum’s face has actually made an appearance on here so drum roll please..this is mum. And she wants you to know that she looks this way because she woke at 5.o0am that morning to a certain boy eager for presents.


So there we go.

How was your Christmas? Quiet, loud, big, eventful? Let me know :)

Three weeks later:

Three weeks it took to connect the Internet at our new house. Only a little bit frustrating.

But I’m back, i have missed you all!

IMG_7817-3The natural light in our main bathroom is to-die-for.

Now comes the tough task of choosing prints for the white and plain walls.

IMG_7770-2 Anyway, nothing too much to say except that i hope you have all been well and I will take this oppurtunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas!

Don’t forget to send your questions for upcoming Q&A here: :)

Much love,

Tis the season to be tired.

Yawn. We’re packing the house up to move yet again and studying for the first of many year 12 (grade 12) tests. Of course, while all this is happening, my anaemia has decided to come in thick and fast and make me feel like I’m sleep walking..constantly. But, alas, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas is less than a month away. My favourite time of the year.

Finally, I’m preparing a question and answer post with questions from my blog readers -- I’d love to hear from you! Yes, you. So if you have a question, pop on over to or email me at – I can assure you, I do not bite, in fact i would very much LOVE to hear from you. And if you have a blog, i will link up your blog on here when i answer your questions in the post :)

Anyway, enjoy these. They were snapped about a month ago but were never posted.

Have a happy day in your corner of the world and don’t forget to ask away! (Again, i promise i don’t bite.)

Much love,


PS – Remember the celebration day post? Well, myself and few girls sang for them in their final assembly and you can check it out here:

Let us know what you think :)

Just a quick and exciting post to let you all know that ThoseBlissMoments is featured at ‘Be A Fun Mum!’ You can read my photography article and tips there…

Kelly is absolutely amazing, and I believe that all of you should head on over to her site. She comes up with the most creative and lovely ideas, and i know all of you will fall in love with her sweet and inspiring manner.

Okay, that’s it from me. I am off to the beach with my best friend.

Sunset + Fish and chips + Sand + Salt Water + Warm weather + Ella = recipe for a perfect sunday night.

Enjoy the rest of your weekends,

Much love,

K xx

- And just because my posts feel naked without pictures:




And finally, Rosie cleverly snapped this one of myself:

In the recent months I lost perspective.

I lost cloud-dreaming.

In the flurry of all the end of year activity, I’ve forgotten what is important. Everything has moved one hundred times faster than last year, and I’ve stopped tonight and caught my breath. I looked at the sky, and remembered a time when i could cloud dream, or when i could sink my feet in the grass for just a little and be.


Tonight, finally, (and i mean finaaaallllyyyy) i had some time. Just a little in between studying for my end of year exams to be for a moment.

I don’t see much in the clouds tonight, maybe i need to look harder…

What do you see?

PS: I just wanted to share this..

Happy Birthday, Blog.

For those who haven't followed this story since the beginning, my first post can be found here.

While these past few months have been super busy and challenging, and my posts have become further apart, I am extremely thankful for those who have stuck around and given a huge amount of support. Thank-you, one thousand and one times over.

To celebrate ThoseBlissMoments’ Birthday, Emily and I got out the bubbles. Don’t be deceived, it took many shots to get just these few…enjoy :)




We refused to end the shoot until we got one like this:


One year worth of love,

My breather.

Is how I’ve come to describe photography.

It is my breather. I let go of tension i didn’t know I was holding when i snap away, and when I process an image in editing that i adore, I breath another sigh, another breath i didn’t know I was holding. IMG_6449-2

IMG_6569-2Just how amazing are her eyes…IMG_6496-2IMG_6538-2 IMG_6542-3

And something written a while back, most probably when I was in my world of I-have-no-motivation:

What is beauty? Is it a face, a feature or a colour? Is it a song, a dance or a star? Is it a moment? A consuming, breath stopping, heart aching moment? They say, you’ll know it when you see it, you’ll feel it, then you’ll know. Well, you see…I’ve beat the system. I’ve figured that it’s ordinary moments, that we pass by, that we take for granted and live and breathe. It’s moments we live through each and everyday that are full of beauty, but we don’t realize til someone takes a photograph, and captures that beauty. Then you realize you’re living it. It’s all around you. You. You are beauty.

And the pictures, they are from today’s Halloween party. While we don’t celebrate it much here in Australia, we still like to dress up sometimes :) Scarier-not-so-beautiful images coming soon..

Til then, have a wonderful day where-ever you may be.

Celebration Day 2010.

I had the pleasure of photographing the year 12’s (seniors..for all you Americans out there) last day at school on Friday.

It was such an emotional but amazing day, and i was so lucky to be able to capture most of it. There is no way i could share all of it, (as all of it is actually 300 photos) but I’ll share a bit.

I will miss these girls.





With much love,

K xx

PS – I am sincerely sorry for my lack of blogging as of late. I’ve been so busy that it is actually running me down, and I’ve been back and forth between the doctors having tests. Turns out I’m actually severely anaemic. For anyone out there who has it, you know what I’m talking about. You just feel terrible, all the time. So i am so sorry to all who still read and comment…I adore you. And i promise, I’m trying to get back to a routine of this :)

Where oh where?




I think I’ve left my heart, inspiration and motivation with the ocean.

I’m not quite sure how to get it back.

“The cure for anything: Salt water, Tears or Sweat”

…is what the famous saying says.

After my huge disappointment, my family and i packed up for the long weekend and headed for the beach.

3 days of sunshine, the beach, music, a local carnival, close friends, my second family, my best friends, dresses and shorts and relaxation looks like this:


Insert huge sigh here. Australian Summer is on it’s way.

No Alex didn’t get the chickenpox while we were away, but yes, the mosquitoes ate him alive. Explains his grumpy expression. That, paired with the fact it was around 8am.

As usual, which is your favourite?

What else do i have to say?

The universe works in a strange way. After huge disappointment and a ‘blah’ week, this was just what i needed.So I’m ready again, I’m myself again..for now :)

Do you believe in Fate?

I’ve never won a competition in my entire life.

But the other day i won 2 VIP passes to a premiere in Syndey, at FOX studios, to mingle with a number of directors and actors including Geoffrey Rush. However, for once in my life, I couldnt access my emails for a few days, then simply forgot to do it.

This meant i couldn’t claim my prize.

The premiere was on Friday.

I wasn’t there. I missed out.

Devastated doesn’t sum it up.

Somebody please make me feel better! It was fate? I wasn’t meant to go!?

Now excuse me while i continue to drown in agony at the thought that i could have taken pictures at this premiere.

Until i actually do manage to do something as exciting as that…here is 2 of Alex…


Not exactly Geoffrey Rush…but whatever…


Anyway, don’t forget to follow me on twitter :

And ask any questions here:

I’m off to find and consume an enormous amount of chocolate.
