One of the many beauties of working from home is that the space is your own. You can decorate it exactly how you like, and make it a place you’re excited to work from! For me, there are some simple necessities I have in my day that keep me excited about my work, and make my workspace a welcoming one.
In 2011, we moved from Auckland to Melbourne for Sam to start his Phd in Bio Medical Science (he’s about to finish!). We didn’t know anyone in Melbourne when we first moved, and ended up staying in a random Airbnb room for a few weeks before finally securing an apartment to lease. Fast forward 3 years, and we’ve made some of our dearest friends here. We have learnt so much from living overseas. We’ve undoubtedly grown closer as a couple, a result of the many challenges we’ve faced together that come from living overseas. Over the past 3 years we’ve lived in Australia, I’ve learned there are specific things that allow me to keep living a full life, despite being away from my home country and family.
I LOVE working from home! Now, a little disclaimer: I have only worked in an office situation when I had part time jobs through Uni (for a graphic design print agency + at the University of Auckland as their assistant photographer), so I haven’t properly experienced the 9-5 job, year in, year out. But even on the days where I long for work colleagues, I hope nothing will ever take me away from working at home! When we first moved to Melbourne, I worked from the corner of our living room, for a year and a half. It certainly wasn’t without it’s challenges, but was actually completely doable. At the moment, I’m blessed have a separate office space at home, I’m so thankful to now be able to close the door at the end of a workday.
I feel privileged and beyond blessed to be living my dream, photographing many amazing couples and beautiful weddings around the world. I'm passionate about giving couples remarkable experiences that enrich lives and go beyond beautiful photographs. True love is a big deal!
