Seasons change.

Time moves so damn fast. Summer has passed… although it could still pass for Summer. It’s pretty darn hot still and our apartment really holds it’s heat (almost too well *dies from heat exhaustion from just sitting at my desk*). Wedding season is nearly at it’s end for me. Just a few more weddings to go this month and then I’ll have a few months off. I’m looking forward to spending some time with the family in Tauranga. Actual time. Not just one day here or there amongst the wedding chaos.

 

I’ll be on the hunt for some freelance design jobs, as well as some portrait, engagement and family shoots over Winter, so holla at me if you want to collaborate or have something for me to do! Will also be focussing a lot on nailing down our Night Owls workflows, updating packaging, and maybe even a website overhaul (I’m looking forward to that one the most!!).

 

Hook is heading over to Australia for a few months to work on a project as soon as the weddings finish, so I’ll be bored out of my brain at home by myself haha. Although I will use this chance to visit as many friends and family as I possibly can and constantly keep myself busy. Or else I might just fall into the sleep-all-day-nerd-all-night hole, and that will be a tough one to come back out of. Haha.

 

Do any of you guys have seasonal based jobs? What do you do to keep yourself busy in the down time?

 

P.S. Those images above were taken on a location scouting mission around Waipu, New Zealand. That place is gorgeous and I’m so keen to get a kayak and head out there next Summer. They also have tamarillo gelato!!!

    Love these photos. You guys would get to go to some neat places with your job :-) Must be nice to have a little bit of a relaxing time after a hectic wedding season. I can’t believe Summer’s over though. It’s been raining non stop all week here, and the forecast looks just as bad over the next week. Such a downer after a lovely end to March! I need to make a few little changes to the layout of my blog so I’m happy you’re now doing a little bit of freelance stuff! I may just be in touch later in Winter.

      Hey Nicola! Yes, we get to do some awesome sight-seeing which is a HUGE bonus to this job. So nice to get outside and just take it all in. I would love to help you out with your blog! Especially working with Amy’s awesome brand work she did for you. Email me if you have some ideas sometime… me {at} danellebourgeois.com :)

    Hi Danielle! Gorgeous photos. I followed your blog a while ago, and only just now remembered you live in NZ. I’m moving to Auckland in a couple of weeks for a film program and won’t know anyone! Eep! So if you’d like to meet a random photographer from Houston, Tx I’d love to meet you! Ha. Or if you ever need a second shooter for anything please let me know. :)

      Hey Abby! That’s exciting that you’re moving here! How long is the film program? (is this photo film or video film?) Would love to meet up once you’re over here! Hit me up when you’re here. :)

        It’s four months- so I’ll be there through September! It’s video film- but I loved photography first. :) Yay! I’ll definitely hit you up!
