“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it” – Julia Child Its been a while since I have logged into this space. Couldn’t find my writing mojo between juggling all the balls. We are deep in the thick of winters here in Melbourne. Sniffly noses, feverish bodies, and cough-y chests haven’t seen the…

Ballarat with Friends !

Hello friends! So the school just started again this week and isn’t that a glorious thing! 😉 About time as well, i was running out of energy to plan some activity for the kids everyday.  As we didn’t go away for the winter break, we decided to do a couple of weekend trips during the…

Day trip to Daylesford

Sharing some photos from our daytrip to Daylesford last weekend. On our drive up there, we stopped among thick, sky-high redwood forests for a while and i couldnt imagine the great Australian outdoors to be any better than that. But ofcourse, i am madly mistaken as each new place in this country invokes this feeling of…

Life in a Family Home :: T01

There is nothing quite like waking up to a clean and organized house. When the stove has been wiped off the grease, dishwasher loaded and run, laundry folded n put away, shoes back to their racks according to the need and priority, toys back in the baskets, strewn clothes in hamper or dressers, garbage taken…

Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrated earlier this week! Hope your day was filled with celebration and merriment, friends and family, food and laughter. We had a very busy Eid ourselves starting right from the Chaand Raat (the night before the Eid Day) when i got together with a group of girlfriends to apply…

House Project :: Melbourne Photo Wall

Today I am sharing a house makeover project that I recently did for my place. Nothing too exciting or dramatic. Just a simple gallery wall. But its a project that I really enjoyed doing and am very happy with the final outlook. Since we moved to Riyadh, I have been meaning to make a gallery…

The Gorgeous Rizwan Family

Hello guys! I meant to do this post quite a few days ago. But oh boy, I didn’t expect Ramadan routine to be this hectic. I hardly get to sleep during the night  courtesy of a certain 2 year old who STILL wakes up multiple times a night (its unbelievably annoying) and the added Sehri…

Charmed by Olinda and Sassafras in the Dandenong Ranges

The best plans in life are always the unplanned ones. Those with the minimal expectations and preparations. Where you just jump in the car pretty late in the day and flip a coin to choose a destination. When you forget to bring some of the most vital elements for being outdoors, i.e. a stroller and…

Mudassir Family from Springvale

I have had this dream for a while now, to be connected to people through my photos. To capture the essence of other families through my lens. To freeze that smile, that dimple on a child’s face. To hold that infinite love in a mother’s eyes for her baby. To picture the loving embrace of…

First week of Winter : Embracing the wet and cold

The start of the month of Ramadan brought with it the desire for nesting in me. The fact that the first week of winter coincided with it was a helping factor too. And the scratchy throats, cough-y nights and feverish days. As I dont have any photoshoot planned for this weekend, it was time for…

My blog turns 1! And a Family Photoshoot Giveaway!

Hello everyone! and Ramadan Mubarak! May the blessings of this Holy month be bestowed upon all of us. This is a special post for me because this little blog of mine that I started has turned ONE YEAR OLD! And incidentally, a couple of weeks ago I wrote my 100th post on the blog. Which…
