Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve, and the excitement levels are
oh so high!
Annabel and Otis are trying their hardest to go to sleep,
treats have been left out for Santa, and his reindeer.
There are presents underneath the fire place 
for Santa, Miss Clause, the elves and the reindeers ~
made, wrapped and then decorated by 2 children
who have been busy for weeks.
I love this time of year.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas
and festive season,
from my family to yours,
however you celebrate,
where ever in the world you are.

Lady Luck - Conversations with Creative New Zealand Women

is out now.  
A while ago I was contacted by Mariana, 
asking if I would like to contribute photography to this book.
The book features conversations/interviews with some AMAZING women,
Gala Darling (pictured below, top right photo)
Hinemoana Baker (pictured below, bottom left photo)
Vivienne Plumb
to name a few.  

It is such a gorgeous book, stunning layout (design by Ceire Hopley), 
and oh so inspiring.
The adorable illustrations by Connie McDonald feature throughout.
Flicking through the book, 
each time I turn to a page with one of my photos I am surprised.
And thrilled.  
My photos in amongst such
I didn't realise at the time that this would mean 
I would get to have a wee blurb about me in there too!
(seen in the top photo above)
Annabel is thrilled that our favourite polaroid photo is in there 

Thank you Mariana, for supporting creative women in New Zealand, 
and for including me in such a gorgeous book.

To get your copy head over here,
I promise you will love it!

It's really odd that all of a sudden,

Time flies when you are having fun.
Wishing you a spring in your step,
during this crazy busy exciting month!
