This morning I asked you to guess which sensationally photographed dog belonged to which super-dooper Sunshine Coast photographer. Now it's time for The Big Reveal. Did you guess correctly?
"Every now and then I bribe my dogs with cheese and in exchange, they tolerate me doing pretty much anything with them for a few minutes. Because I am a documentary style photographer at heart, sometimes it's nice to stretch my brain in the other direction and photograph them in a posed way - but definitely not in a light and fluffy way. They have grown up in front of the camera, which makes them very easy to photograph - they definitely let me know when they've had enough though! Bless them."
Just for fun today, we are playing a game here on The Bride's Tree. It's called Guess Whose Dog? As you can imagine, the canine-loving photographers on the Sunshine Coast have the most gorgeous pics of their best pals. If you love a furry friend photo oggling sesh, you are going to flip out!
And these are some seriously cute dog photos!
Take a look at these pooches, and see if you can name the photographer they belong to! Our happy guy above leads a very lovely life full of beach runs and cuddles with his photographer owner.
Little Cove, Noosa is the perfect beach wedding ceremony location. It is private, serene and hands-down one of the most stunning places in the world. The natural surroundings of the beach, bush and headland are impressively pretty indeed.
As a writer, I love a blank page. That moment before I start typing, before I even know where my fingers hovering above the keyboard will take me is my favourite. I take a deep breath, sometimes pause a moment, and then something happens - my mind clicks in, and it all starts coming out. Sometimes in small parts, sometimes it starts with one idea or concept and grows. Sometimes is floods uncontrollably, and I need to take a moment to gather myself and organise my waves of thoughts crashing into my consciousness.
This is why I love Maleny Retreat. When you pull up and step out onto that expansive green with a panoramic horizon, you take that deep breath. And ideas creep in, or bolt in. It's a blank page. A blank canvas, full of possibility. Seeing what others have done with this versatile space is inspiring.
