Why Spend With Us?
My husband, our three kids and I live on a beautiful 320 acres in the Hastings Hinterland area. We’ve been here since 2013 and are loving bringing our kids up in this wonderful rural community. The beautiful Pappinbarra River flows through our property and we feel incredibly blessed to live where we do.
It hasn’t been easy for the last few years though – in 2017 a bushfire went through our property, causing damage to our gardens, fences, tanks and cattle yards. We were fortunate not to lose our house and sheds, as others nearby did. The RFS did an amazing job! In 2018 and 2019 drought hit us, and our river nearly dried up, we commenced hand feeding our cattle, but we couldn’t keep it up. We sold two-thirds of our breeding cattle at the beginning of November 2019, and a week later our property was under threat from fire again. We fought the fire on our property for 10 days, keeping it away from the majority of our pastures. Unfortunately, we lost another set of fencing and we’re back on the rebuild again.
Although we’ve had some rain, and we’ve had a good year so far with the cattle we have left, we are still always looking for ways to help bring in some money that supports us living here and doing what we love doing. A couple of years ago, my wonderful husband bought me a camera, and this has been my sanity saver, and now I’m trying to use it to support what we do.
I love to take photos of sunsets and flowers (as you might have guessed 😉 ) but I’m still mastering the sunset photography, while I think I’ve got a pretty good handle on capturing flowers. I hope you enjoy the flower photography and the art that is in these images. My heart and soul goes into them, I love spending time in nature, walking around the garden, spotting the little details…
