Sunday Notes...

Dear Queen, your song 'Only the Good Die Young' is true. Sarah, I hope to see you again one day, rest peacefully.
Dear family, I'm so excited to be spending this long weekend with you all.
Dear new house, we have fallen in love with you and can't wait to make memories here.
Dear cookie jar, how did you empty so fast?
Dear shower door, I can't wait to buy you and install you so our floor stays dry!
Dear Pinterest, thankyou for inspiring my Mama Bear to make this pretty beauty for me...

The end of the Emilie era...

One week ago today was Moving Day! We had the truck hired and the boxes packed.

It was a little bittersweet leaving that teensy, tiny unit and moving into our new house. The end of our renting days (that's the sweet bit!), but moving on is the start of a new and exciting era. In a way our decision to buy a house together is cementing our relationship. We believe we don't have to have rings to know we will be together forever and buying a house means the world to us.

The red brick 1960's unit was where our relationship grew, where our relationship once 'broke' and where it was mended again. We moved in there two years ago after being together for a mere five months with the attitude 'well, if our relationship doesn't last, we can break the lease and move on'. Now, after some amazing times together - holidays, business ventures, funny mishaps we have packed up all our fond memories and have moved on and out!

We made so many memories and 3/35 Emilie Street will always be where 'we' started.

I came across this little quote and thought how profound. This sums up how I felt about leaving Emilie Street. Our relationship, as well as us as people, will be growing, changing and will never be what it was when we first moved into that little space.

so true <3

When life gets busy, hectic and full-on, escaping to the country is the best way to relax, unwind and forget all the worries.

Luke and I both work full-time day jobs which leaves us the weekends to book photo shoots, Weddings and Christenings and after work during the week to meet with clients, edit photos, update the blog, update the website, plus all the other business things - researching new gear we need, organising marketing and client packs, re-visiting pricing...yup, you get the idea!

June and July had been full-on for us to say the least, we had been working our butts off and we were scared of a burn-out. So on the first weekend we had free we did what we do best...we got in the car and went road-tripping!

The best plan is 'no real plan' and Luke suggested we decided to head in the direction of Burra. We put on our trackies and runners, bought some snacks for the car, packed up our cameras and headed North.

We spent the day driving a 4wd tourist drive, lunching, winery-ing, and enjoying.


p.s. Right now, we are having another weekend getaway in McLaren Vale...a much needed and deserved break before we move into our new abode!

Meet Charlotte | Adelaide Newborn Photographer

Meet baby Charlotte, who was bought into the world in July! Luke and I met her and her parents back in July when she was 14 days old.

Thank you again to Gillian and Andrew for inviting us into your home and allowing us to create precious memories for you family.

Luke + Megan xx

I have a weakness for newborn feet...

Charlotte was born with blonde hair which apparently is so rare that nurses in the hospital would come and have a peek at the little blondie.
