. NEW ZEALAND .
Josiah and I extended our 2 hour layover in Auckland to a 4 day layover in Wellington :)
So we got to stay with my friend Travis (who I haven't seen since my YWAM DTS in Northern Ireland 4 years ago), and go cafe hopping with his friends. I love Wellington, and would go back in a heartbeat.
. AUSTRALIA .
Josiah's sister and her family (husband and 3 adorable boys) live in Corrimal, Australia. So we decided that it was high time to go visit :)
We got to visit the Blue Mountains:
Take the train to Sydney:
Go on on Sydney Harbor Cruise:
Visit the Symbio Wildlife Park:
And see some magnificent views :

I've had a number of brides inquire about boudoir photography in the past couple years, and this lovely lady was the first to actually do it! However, you can't see her face because it's a surprise for her beau :)
For anyone who might be interested, boudoir photography (to me) is one of the classiest and heartfelt gifts to give to the man you plan to spend the rest of your life with. Photos like these are timeless, and are the purest form of class and femininity. These are the photos you can show your grandchildren when you're old and wrinkly, and they can say things like "Darn! Look how gorgeous grammy is!"
This is blog number TWO that wanted to feature Michael & Amy's wedding
What an honor :)Check it OUT!
If you know anything about me, it is that I have had a vampire-obsession since the ripe old age of 16. Another little factoid about me is that one of the things I love most is playing dress-up. I've found that it is crucial to my life and career to continue taking crazy dramatic and fun photos just for the heck of it. Soooooooo.... that's just what these are!!! And instead of using a self-timer and tripod this year, my husband volunteered (got drafted...?) to play photographer (a job he does quite well, if I do say so). So these are the work of the great Josiah Leader.... edited by yours truly :)
And I shot these ones.....
My darling Emily
shot these ones of me... yes, I am in fact on the OTHER side of a camera.
Josiah and I finally got a day to ourselves today (this last month has not been very kind to our time together... or lack thereof). So we got bundled up, got some Starbucks, and headed to the pumpkin patch (lot?).
Josiah busted out a "Jack" pumpkin and mine was originally going to be a vampire, but could also very possibly be the Cheshire Cat..... so I call it my "Vampire Cheshire Cat" :)
