Camera Squad β€’ 
Honestly shooting alongside this team was a dream! Videographers, photographers, all getting confused for each others jobs by the guests πŸ˜‚Just a whole lot of fun to be had! We missed our squad photo though (πŸ™ƒ @maddiegraeme), so it'll have to be next time 😜
Anyways, you sure made my first wedding a great one. Thanks squad πŸ™ŒπŸ»

EquipHer Conference 2018 is now over. It was an absolute honour and a privilege to lead a fabulous team and serve this conference. This is honestly a shout out post to my wonderful photography team and to the people I worked with. And if you don't see your photo above ☝️ that's because even though I was one of the photographers I didnt manage to get one of you (my bad haha). β€’  Firstly to my team! @churrbroskii served practically every session alongside me and jumped in so willingly! @peninajoy with her fabulous eye for portraits totally helped elevate our game. @alanta_grace with her servant heart, was able to remain cool and calm under pressure even though the camera was being a pain, to get wonderful shots. You guys are AMAZING!

Shawna: Are you posing? I don't have a photographer with me. 
Leslie: Google Earth. Always taking pics.
- Parks and Rec

In this case I did have a camera but there's always an element of posing (aye @hansniumata) β€’
Fun fact - right before this photo was taken a random stranger was posing behind the shot. This was the exact quote I said to him as he walked past.

"Do it for the gram"

We sat there working our abs getting shots of the sky tower last night. And it was 100% worth it. I love doing impromptu photo shoots and exploring new places. The problem is I now have to try remember these places in daylight (and it always looks different!)

I have stunning friends both inside and out.

This is Ella. I can't remember how or when we became friends, I just know we did. Ella is one of the most adventurous people I know. Soon she leaves Auckland for the next fantastic adventure in her life which is both awesome and makes me a little sad. I'm going to miss her but boy do I look forward to going to visit her wherever she ends up!
