Photograph by my beautiful friend Mandy See Photography
I was born and raised in Australia, but have been living in California since 2003. I'm a divorced mummy of three children (a 19 year old and twin 9 year olds). We live in Southern California's wine country and I am fueled by coffee, bacon and cocktails - generally in that order, but sometimes all together.
Our house is in a perpetual state of organized chaos. I'm a collector of moments and not things and believe in living every day like it could be your last.
In short I'm a sunset watcher; chick flick and chick lit lover; spa-a-holic; foodie; snuggler; thrift and craft store addict; boo boo kisser; and social media junkie, with a slightly eclectic style.
The oldest (Jay): college student; video game addict; serial snapchatter; scuba diver; shoe collector; artist; music and YouTube junkie; regular #carmeats attendee; lover of reality shows, scary movies, and his cars.
Twin A (Marisol): she who runs the house; 4th grade student; art and craft protege; tea party hostess; horse rider; collector of all things girlie; lover of accessories, lip gloss, painted toe nails and pink; sweet tooth; queen of the phrases “I can’t like that” and "that will take too long".
Twin B (Flynn): 4th grade student; daredevil; book reader; video game player; bike rider; roller coaster addict; train junkie; water lover; builder of tall towers; LEGO collector; aikido lover; bowler.

So what do I have planned for the future? Read my bucket list here.
In case you are interested, here is the camera equipment I use:
Canon EOS 60D - with these lenses:
Kodak EasyShare M580 (the camera I use on-the-go or when the battery goes flat in my primary camera)
iPhone 5 - with various apps including Snapseed, VSCO, Camera+ and PicTapGo. Connect with me on Instagram
For photo editing, adding text and making collages I use a combination of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 and PicMonkey.
I have photography tips too if you need them.
