When I was 18 (1998 people!) and backpacking around Europe- I headed to Assisi for St the Francis feast day. When I saw the tomb of St Francis I was amazed. This amazing person actually existed. One day I will travel to Jerusalem, but in the meantime I will never forget the feeling I had that day. Christmas is a time to celebrate amazing people like this 🎄🌸🦋

Hua Hin, Thailand

Want a beautiful and spiritual trip for your family in Thailand. Well I am no expert, but am happy to share our amazing experience in Hua Hin. Hua Hin (หัวหิน) is a seaside resort city in Thailand. It is popular with Thais, having become quite fashionable as a weekend getaway spot for Bangkok residents, as well with foreigners and as an ex-pat retirement or holiday home location.  Our Beautiful holiday in Hua Hin was inspiring. We are a family of four and love Thailand immensely. It has every thing you would like great food, family friendly fun, and beautiful spiritual adventures.

The condo we stayed in was amazing. Although Hua Hin is developing rapidly, there is a commitment by the local and provincial authorities to avoid the kind of overheated blight that has affected other beach resorts in Thailand. The tranquil fishing village was turned into a royal resort and consequently became popular among Siam's nobility and upper classes.
The 5 km long beach itself is pretty, and the s…

Model Kristen Parlievet

This winter has bought some beautiful moody skies to Sydney which not only allows even light to fall on the model, but also allows for some cracker moodscapes.

I had model Kristen Parlevliet come to Sydney from Melbourne and we created some great images.

So first to the #moodscape! I was feeling sad as a creative project of mine had just finished due to the incorrect logistics forecasting (yes…not my strength, as a photographer). So I wanted to create an image that showed how I was feeling.

This was a first for me as I usually would just create “beautiful images,” and not think through the mood I was in. However I was very aware of this and wanted to channel this sad feeling in my images.

So this is the finished product:

Kristen has the most AMAZING smile that makes anyone feel happy, just by being around it.

So I also created some beautiful shots showing her great personality. I just waited until I was in a better mood before I edited them, so they would be as vibrant as possible…
Stopping a creative project is very hard. You feel a sense of loss. I can only describe that in an image. This photo I created on Monday the same day I announced my creative project Chocumin was no longer.

Back in the day ;)

Wow. There has been quite allot of movement with my book "How to look good in photo's" Last month it hit the top 30 in lifestyle photography on Amazon. Glad to see you are all striking a pose! Here is a #flashback to my modelling days (long ago....before the I-phone!)

Thanks Amazon for the amazing experience. I never thought I would write a book, but I had so many tips and tricks I wanted to share and how many workshops can a girl run! Xx

Saatchi Art

Okay lovelies, my artwork is being represented by Saatchi Art. 

I have a BA in Fine art from UNSW. This training fine tuned my creative skills. My fine art work has been exhibited at at TAP Gallery Darlinghurst, The Australian Affordable Art Fair, St Vincent's Private Hospital Darlinghurst, the University of New South Wales, and the University of Western Sydney. My photographic work remains in two permanent collections at two Sydney hotels, Cremorne Point Manor and Glenferrie Lodge Kirribilli. I am an avid traveller. I love capturing this amazing world we live in.

Wolgan Valley

I was very lucky to stay at the beautiful Wolgan Valley. It is a resort located in the Australian state of New South Wales. It is centred on the Wolgan River and is located approximately 150 kilometres west of Sydney.

I also have reviwed where I stayed at Wolgan Valley if you are thinking of visiting

Royal Australian Navy

Had a great time at the charity fundraiser for NSW Kids in Need in conjunction with the Royal Australian Navy. We went on an amazing tour of the HMAS Canberra.

The HMAS Canberra is the lead ship of the Canberra-class landing helicopter dock in service with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). It is the current flagship of the RAN fleet. Construction of the ship started in Spain in 2008, with the hull launched by Navantia in 2011. The hull was then transported to Australia in late 2012 for completion.

It was an amazing experience and thank you to all the amazing women and men who protect our country

Thank you

Thank you to all of our kickstarter supporters. Because of you a beautiful farmer Hoa Phan will be very happy. Because of you other Vietnamese people now have employment making chocolate that will ultimately make it to your letter box.

We are doing everything we can to get our tasty curcumim chocolate to you as promised by May. My business partner Nhi comes from a family of restaurateurs and she is heading up the team.

I have never tasted food so beautiful than when Nhi prepares it. Look out foodies- your about to have something special. I am pinching myself thinking I am so lucky to have a chocolate factory.

Not only is it a childhood dream, but to be creative within a field you love in unexplainable. And to also know that you are supporting a community. A community I traveled to Vietnam to meet, eat, and laugh with. I cant describe the feeling.

Love Kate Branch

Chocumin - The Superfood of your Dreams

My new project is to kickstart Chocumin and I am LOVING my work.

What is Chocumin?

Chocumin is superfood the food of your dreams. Or at least we hope so. Its Swiss
style, milk, dark or white chocolate with 30% pure refined Curcumin from Turmeric
which is the active ingredient. Each piece of delicious Chocumin contains the same
amount of Curcumin as eating Sixty, 500mg capsules of turmeric. (30 grams, 1.05 oz)
Not only is Chocumin good for you, it’s tasty. Eaten alone or with a warm beverage it’s
the perfect healthy way to enjoy eating chocolate and obtaining 1mg of Curcumin in
your diet.

Why is this important?
Multiple medical studies have shown that Curcumin refined from Turmeric has
impressive and inflammatory properties. The problem is that most studies have been
based on large amounts of Turmeric and we’ve shown that simply eating this amount
of Turmeric is almost impossible in a normal diet. We have made this challenge a
breeze by combining our love of chocolate and our love of …
