I almost could not do this session, because they were moving out of this country and it was an last minute decision to have a photoshoot, so I we decided to make it happen, and I am so glad we did. Milly is the sweetest little girl who loves the ocean, and I love photoshoots like this. The wind in the hair, wet dress, and true joy on her little face. Yamba is a true gem for photography and this afternoon did not disappoint.
Sometimes I sit on my couch and think about the time we lived in South West Rocks for those magical 9 months. I have moved a lot in my life and I can honestly say that those 9 months were some of the happiest of my life. Soo…when the school holidays came to an end we made the split second choice to go and visit for a few days. As always, I came back recharged and ready for the new term. We got to catch up for coffee with one of my closest friends in the little coffee shop we use to hang out in when the kids were only little. The days when we cycled there and cooled down with a green smoothy. I got to go to the pilates place where I first started out with a beautiful friend and worked out with an amazing trainer. The same beautiful friend took me out to see a movie, and we just laughed and sang along to the songs and had the best time. I cannot remember going to that place and not had fun. It is just different and fun and a place where moms can sit back and relax and be human again.
We stayed in the caravan park on the river and we explored all the little spots we loved so much when we lived there. Looking for oysters at Back Beach at low tide, chasing the little fish in the wild wind at Trial Bay, playing hide and seek on the rock and the bear cave on Little Bay and eating salad sandwiches and cheap icecream at Horseshoe Bay and we enjoyed the beautiful new park. There were so much that I still wanted to do, but that will have to wait till next time. We will be back.

I just try to soak up the littleness in her while I can. She has lost two of her teeth now, and she act so grown up at times. She is a great at negotiating and she can often get what she wants by talking her sibling into it. She is a mess maker but she loves it when her room is in order. She is a dreamer and realistic all at once. She is a great friend to those who loves her, but she does not stand back to those who don’t. She stands firm on her own two legs and rarely tell on her pears. I like that about her. I like that she fight her fights and deal with problems head on. She tells the truth. She learned early on that owning your mistakes cause less problems than to cover them up. She proudly does her self assigned chores every morning. She decided that unpacking the dishwasher was her job, and she loves doing it. She loves school and she takes the bus most mornings. She is five and way to grown up for my liking.
