I've been thinking a lot about success lately. 

I strive for it, we all do - in some shape of form. It can be little things or big things.

But what is it, really?

I don't know if it could be defined as a certain income or a particular job but rather a state. Isn't it a feeling? When you know you've done your best, or you are the best at what you do. In my mind, that is success.

Photos tonight: a random array of images picked at a whim. Scattered from different times last year. Just like my brain at the moment. Busy, busy life at the moment trying to fit too many things into one day. But busy is good. Enjoy: 

And a quote to leave you with:

"What you are thinking is what you are becoming." - Muhammad Ali

Be positive,

'Formal Fever'

...Is a term used to describe the lead-up to Year 12 Formal, which for those who are American is 'Senior Prom.'

And Formal fever we had. Big time.

The following images were not taken by me and are not of high-quality. I know this blog is predominantly about sharing photo's I have taken, but its also about documentation. So document, i will :)

My eyes. All credit goes to 'ORBE hair and make-up.' Funny story, actually. I asked for "some 'different' eyes that would match my dress" but watched in horror as the make-up artist began to make me look like i had two terrible black eyes. However, 20 minutes later and it looked like that. And i loved. Super talented make-up artist. Had i tried, i most certainly would have failed. 

Alex actually thought i was getting married. I had to tell him that typically requires a white dress and a fiancee, both of which i do not have. Don't think he understood.

But the best thing about Formal? Yes it's fun getting yourself dressed and pretty, but my favourite part is seeing all your friends made up. It's so exciting, and i can tell you with confidence that every single of them (yes you, ella, rosie, lucy, clare, hannah, danielle, alice, eleni, alana, amelia, etc etc all of year 12) looked incredible. 

But alas, it's over. And this post will be my reminder of what a good night it was. And always and forever now, we're moving forward onto the next thing.


Time to sleep,

I have other ten thousand photos from the past twelve months.

Sometimes, (when i'm pushed to do so) i go through them again. And again. And again. And occasionally delete the odd one or two. (Emphasis on the one or two)

I believe in preserving life in photos. 

I can look at these and tell you exactly how i was feeling when i took these.

It's a crazy and amazing thing.


Each photo should reflect an emotion, memory, anything, something. If my photos do, then i think it's a job well done.

It's like anything in life really. If you can come away from something feeling good or having learnt something, it was worth while - no matter what. 

I'm learning, always learning.

With wintery love and chai tea by my side,

Tis the season...

...For formals.
Which in American terms is 'Prom.'

Last night, two of my good friends attended a formal for another school.

They looked beautiful. No surprise there. And for some who have asked, my photos are not photoshopped - ever. I work in Lightroom and adjust colour and exposure only. No airbrushing. 

 Clare and Lucy;

Thinking a lot lately about my future. Scary and wonderful, daunting but exciting. Hoping things unfold and i get to where i want to be - wherever that may be.

My heart is drifting.

Much love,

K xx

I believe.

I believe in Karma. 

I believe in good and bad. And that it can't always be 'good.'

I believe that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
I believe in fate.

But i also believe in creating your own path.
I believe in waiting for better, but also creating the better.

I believe in believing.

What do you believe in?
