Marlene and I have been friends for some time but living in a whole other state means we rarely get together. But with Marlene being an amazing documentary photographer herself, I feel like I already know her family so well. We have often talked about how similar our daughters are – they are just two months apart in age and certainly alike in personality! While we were in Melbourne we headed west to visit and have a playdate with our girls. It turns out they really do have a similar personality with both being really quite reserved and quiet around strangers! They were slow to warm up to each other but once we headed to the local park and they plotted some cheeky plans together, they loosened up and took great delight in filling up their boots and hurling woodchips in the air.
