Cambodia {to see the world}

A few weeks ago now 2 friends and I travelled to Cambodia. It was an incredible experience. A whirlwind trip.

We spent time in Phnom Penh, exploring the city, shopping in markets, seeing the sights and taking endless trips in tuk tuks!… One of the great things we did was take a cooking class.  We were taking to local food markets and then taught to make spring rolls and fish amok. AMAZING!

While we were in Cambodia we met up with a friend who has been working with young girls rescued from sex trafficking.  As you scroll through these images you’ll see one which has handprints.  To protect their privacy, and out of respect for the girls, we didn’t take any photos of them but these handprints belong to some of them.

There are a bunch of organisations around that rescue people out of modern day slavery and work to give them a new start at life… I’d encourage you to have a look at some of these links and how you can support and make a difference to even just one person…

Toowoomba family Photographer | life:narrated {meeting Lucy}

I really love what I do… how incredible to document the arrival of new life on this earth?!… It gets even better when its for people I love  … like little Lucy!

I had the privilege of meeting Lucy shortly after she was born (while still in recovery actually!)… and getting to make images of her first few hours and meeting her older sister and some extended family was SUCH a pleasure.

Thanks for allowing me share these first precious moments with the world…

Carol Hetherington - Hi Samara,
I am Tiana Gurney’s aunty and just want to say how
absolutely beautiful the clip of Lucy’s debut into this
world is. I LOVE the music and am wondering who
is singing it and what it is called.
I wish you well with your business.
Regards,
Carol
