I am Sam

It’s been another intense weekend. First off – I’ve shot my first wedding! I’ll share more from that once the editing has been done. Secondly – we’ve had a visitor. From Friday to Sunday, this little fellow has been hanging out in our house, requiring attention, cuddling and food. Always food. Oh, how I want a dog of our own.

Location Scouting

I’m shooting my very first wedding (Excitement! Panic!) this upcoming Saturday. It was booked less than a week ago, so not a whole lot of time preparing. Yesterday I took some time to walk around the area and scout good locations for portraits. During those 45 min I found a whole bunch of good locations, and of each one I snapped a picture. You’ll not get to see them, not at all, cause to be honest they’re not all that interesting. But in between those snaps I managed to capture a few ones that I took just for me, which I thought I’d share with you lot. It’s just a few fleeting moments from a sunny Wednesday afternoon, walking along Southbank and Alexandra/Queen Vic Gardens.

A jewellery viewing and a birthday party

Ohmy, this was one intense weekend. My butt is now glued to the couch, and I’m looking forward to a week of going back to normal, and possibly relaxing a bit in the evenings. Although, to be honest, I don’t think there will be that much relaxing going on, as I’m preparing to shoot my first wedding next weekend. All exciting though!

I wanted to share a few snaps from the weekend past. First a sneak peek of the jewellery launch for a friend of mine, which I helped shoot for and help setup the, well, set. It’s only just a peek, as they will be used by her later, and I can’t out it all beforehand, right?

After the jewellery launch we headed to Wheeler’s Hill to celebrate Zoran’s birthday. Somehow we ended up on the floor in the living room, playing Monopoly. Quite something at a party, eh?

Today I headed north and did a small portrait shoot for Klaus & Fritz. Once that was done Peter & Eric picked me up and we headed to Brunchwick (formally known as Brunswick) for food intake at East Elevation. It was quite a wait, but boy was it worth it. I’d say my dish ended up at the top 5 mushroom foodie experiences I’ve had in Melbourne, and since I’m a sucker for mushrooms, that’s saying a lot.

And before I placed myself on this couch I met up with another couple for a coffee to discuss their wedding I’m shooting in September. But now, now I’m gonna close down my email, Lightroom and browser, and just zone out and watch a really bad tv show. The luxury!

The Hoofmeister

Well not really. I suppose these babies haven’t bitten any dust at all so far, as they only were unpacked the other day and haven’t been taken out for a ride at all! Anyway. I used to be a gal wearing high heels (wedges ftw!) all the time back in Sweden. I remember the shoes I got for our wedding party. A friend called them my ‘hoofs’, and that has stuck with me since then. I want them big and bulky, and preferably a bit graphic in the look, and all of them hoof like. Well who am I to argue with my tastes, I’ll just have to follow them.

These pairs arrived from ModCloth during our trip. Now I just hope spring comes soon so I can start wearing them!
