Karen & Clint, Our Story

Filed in : Personal

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and imagine.  Imagine knowing that your husband (who happens to be an awesome one at that!) is the kind of guy who will do anything for you.  No matter what.  Even if it means that he’ll be working 7 days a week, for you to have your dream […]

How We Made A House, Our Perfect Home: Part 2

Filed in : Personal

This is where things start to get dirty, more of a behind the scenes of a tradesman work, rather than Clint and I in action.  That comes next week, I promise!  With the assistance of my parents, the research process had begun with many showroom visits and home consultations with tradesmen.  What amazed me during […]

How We Made A House, Our Perfect Home: Part 1

Filed in : Personal

When I think back, it probably all started with a phone call from our friend about 5 years ago, “Hey, will you come on The Block with me”.  To keep this post as G rated as possible, I won’t describe Clint’s reaction, apart from it being a resounding “NO”.   Ever since then, I had […]

2017 Behind The Scenes

Filed in : Personal

  Wow, that was fast!  I’m sure you know the feeling.  The feeling of the impeding excitement of rest.  And then all of a sudden it’s over, a new year has started….. again.  Don’t you wish it was like summer holidays when you were in school.  Remember that feeling of total boredom, of having 6 […]

What Do Photographers Do During Winter

Filed in : Personal, Photography

A wedding season for Clint and I extends for about 11 months of the year. Winter weddings are becoming increasingly popular with many brides and grooms scheduling their ceremonies for July and August. I mean, what’s more romantic than an intimate ceremony by a fireplace with all your family and friends rugged up, warm & […]

A Surprise Wedding Proposal

Filed in : Engagement, Personal, Weddings

There isn’t a time in my life that I can’t remember the Reynolds family not being there.  That’s probably because they moved across the road from us when I was about 5.   As my brothers Michael and Ashley were older than me, I was always the little one.  So as time went by, I […]

BTS | 2016 Wedding Expo Stand

Filed in : Personal, Weddings

We attended our first wedding expo in 2014 and very quickly learned what to do and what not to do.  Initiation by fire is how I would describe it!  2015 was a year that can only be described as crazy and tiring, but extremely beneficial!  We have grand plans for 2016, and we wanted our presentation […]

The Best Thing About Our Holiday – Our Anniversary Session!

Filed in : Personal

The lead up was hectic, but you knew all the craziness was going to be worthwhile!  Then, you’re off!  A dream holiday.  Who cares what day it is, who cares if everyone else in the city has to go work, you’re on holidays!  So you have the most amazing time ever, and then it happens. […]

3 Things We Learnt From Our Anniversary Photo Shoot

Filed in : Engagement, Personal

One thing about my relationship with Clint is our tradition of not giving presents for anniversaries or Valentines Day. We’re just not into that. So when we celebrated our 5 year anniversary in October last year, I decided to do something for both of us. We had booked our holiday to the USA with our […]

Reflections & Projections

Filed in : Personal

I’ve been sitting here for a while now, searching for a word that reflects what 2015 looked like for Clint and I. As much as I wanted to try and find one big word that accurately summarised how we felt, I realise that there is really only one small word – crazy!  Let me rewind […]

Guilty As Charged!!

Filed in : Personal

Clint called me out. Big time! I tried to make excuses, but he wouldn’t have a piece of it. I pleaded not guilty, but was definitely overruled. Guilty! I tried to convince myself that it was normal and while it may be normal in a lot of households, it doesn’t mean it’s right. We barely […]

Rocket and Axle – Cousins for Life!

Filed in : Personal

Pressure is coming in from every angle – work, family, friends.  Every day pressures that don’t allow us to take a deep breath and breathe.  With Clint working in a high pressured full time job, plus working in and on the business with me, he’s tired.  So very tired!  Everyone has these pressures, not just […]

To The Woman I Love!

Filed in : Personal

It’s our 5 year wedding anniversary today and rather than the normal voice on the blog I thought it would be nice to share some memories and some words about my beautiful and talented wife. As we say to all of our couples, your wedding day will be one of the best days of your […]

7 Things You Didn’t Know About Clint

Filed in : Personal

Everyone who knows me, knows that Clint is my partner in crime, my best friend, business partner and the worlds #1 husband!    I absolutely love how he makes me laugh when I’m grumpy, I love the way he dances when Daryl Braithwaite’s “Horses” comes on and I honestly love that he tells it straight.

What Do Shoes, Sleep and Navy Seals All Have In Common?

Filed in : Personal

I have a confession to make…. I’m a people watcher. I can sit for hours and create stories about what is going on in a persons life. What they had for breakfast, how long it’s taken them to get to work or what they did on the weekend. This actually got me thinking though. How […]

Fluffy Puppy, Skinny Puppy – Be Gone Winter!

Filed in : Personal

Go on.  Be brave.  Admit it. We’ve all worn the most comfy tracksuits, eaten comfort food and basically hibernated for 3 months.  This pretty much sums up how everyone feels by the end of winter.   A little bit shaggy!     Axle is possibly one of the most spoilt pooches in this neighbourhood.  Perhaps […]

Our New Obsession

Filed in : Personal

We have a new love. Do you know her? We all lead such busy lives, that quite often there’s nothing better than staying home. For the past 2 months or so, we’ve had another reason to stay home on those odd days when we don’t have anything scheduled. Her name is Netflix. I’m not sure […]

Working On Our Work/Life Balance

Filed in : Personal

Work/life balance. It’s a tricky one to manage, but it’s one that we’ve recognised is vitally important to our personal health, the health of our relationship and the health of our business.  Continuing along the lines of our “date nights”, Clint and I have been trying to make a concerted effort to take short breaks where we can.  It’s […]

Tell Them You Love Them

Filed in : Personal

Time absolutely flies.  It feels like just yesterday that I was leaving school and trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up.  But then I met someone. His name was Clint and I knew he was different.  Fast forward a few years (ok, more than a few), and we are […]

Furthering My Education With Jasmine Star

Filed in : Personal, Photography

I’m craving it.  I need more and more, and no, it’s not a cheeseburger… well, maybe!  I just can’t seem to satisfy my need to keep learning.  I want to be inspired, I want to push myself.  No, I need to push myself.  I’m going to be successful and Clint is going to experience what […]
