Birthday Beautiful

Safana just sent me this picture of her wearing her custom white birthday dress. It’s made in a silky jersey, with a gold necklace bar.  I think she looks so gorgeous!

Happiest birthday wishes to you, Safana!



Happy long weekend!

Love and peace,




Blossoming Love

To kick off my blog posts for this party season, I am starting with one very close to my heart. I had the honor of doing the engagement photo shoot for my very dear friends Angela and Michael- and also making the custom dresses for Angela.

Angela and I grew up together on the Sunshine Coast, and I have been lucky to have her as a bestie all this time.  I just love Angela to pieces, and also adore her fiance, Michael.

We took the photos on a hot April afternoon at Queen Elizabeth Park, as well as another one near PNE/ Playland, using the spectacular cherry blossoms as a dreamy, romantic background.

Spending time with Angela and Mike made me think about how perfect they are together. They both sparkle with pure happiness, as well as a shared joy for life that makes everyone around them feel like dancing and laughing.

I think the photos radiant with their personality and love for each other. It was a fabulous way to spend an afternoon! Thank you, Ang and Mike for letting me be a part of such a special day.

Love and peace,
