Four weeks rolled into one! What a busy few weeks it's been! I've been working a lot at my day job, had a wedding to shoot and a couple of other shoots to do. Plus having a puppy and keeping on top of our house means I've had very little time! But enough of that, let's get straight into some November photos.
We put up our Christmas tree and I'm so happy with it this year. I've had this Christmas tree for nearly 10 years and each year I just collect a few more pieces for it (usually on sale) so it has been a very slow and gradual job. I don't always use all of my decorations, I tend to switch things around each year depending on how I feel.
Thor is around 12 weeks old in these images. He is getting so big now! He is really filling out in his width. He graduated puppy pre-school with flying colours and was the most well behaved puppy there. We are about halfway with his toilet training, he poops outside and gives us signals for that, but his peeing is a bit hit and miss, mainly because his little bladder is still developing. I basically watch him like a hawk when he's roaming around!
His favourite things right now are: pigs ears, shoelaces, belly and butt rubs, meal time and walks. We've just started taking him for walks. That will be my next photo post as it's still relatively new and I haven't taken my camera with me.
Through the day while we're at work we keep him in the bathroom and have the air conditioning on (so hot in Australia when it's Summer time). We hide treats everywhere and give him a Kong to work on. It seems to keep him occupied and happy!
I recently shot a half-day wedding in Sydney which was fantastic. I loved everything about this wedding and I really enjoyed the day. I seem to enjoy half-day/relaxed/intimate weddings much more than the 10+hour long ones with all the bells and whistles.
I've nearly finished my 52 week photography project. I feel a sense of accomplishment and relief: finally it's ending! There were weeks where it felt like such a chore. especially when I had so much other stuff going on. But it feels very satisfying regularly taking my own personal photos and editing them. I'm not entirely sure if I will keep the 52 week photography project going in 2017, but I think I'd like to at least keep a visual diary of some type. We will see!
