Bree and Anton are high school sweethearts. They’re smart. They’re totally in love. They have a beautiful family. They’re building their house (it’s their third, by the way). AND they each run their own business. I know, right? How can so much luck and talent and and and go to one couple? So not fair.
But after having spent a full day with them and their adorable two sons, I realised that it’s not just luck and talent – they work incredibly hard. They’re giving people. They teach their sons patience and kindness. They never expect anything from anyone. They just live and treat others as they want to be treated. So it makes sense that the universe rewards them in leaps and bounds. The most precious thing about this family, however, is how just being in their presence allows you to see the world differently. You see, a few personal things happened to me while I was in Adelaide to photograph them. Things that, in other circumstances, may have made me quite upset and sensitive and angry with the world. But seeing the way Bree and Anton live their life and treat others made me realise so much about the human condition: we’re resilient. And kind meets kind; lovely meets lovely. Always. :)
So Bree + Anton, thank you so much for letting me spend time with you and your beautiful family, and for reminding me to work hard, play hard, and love hard. :) Big hugs to you and your beautiful boys. xoxo
[Yes, we slept at a fire station. And then we went and picked strawberries. And then we went to have a picnic in the Adelaide hills, all styled beautifully by Emily from White Room Events. It was an AWESOME day!!]
[And no, Bree and Anton don't have a third child; the cutie pie is the daughter of Bree's bestie, who both joined us for the strawberry picking! :)]
