When I met with Terry and Mia, and heard about their unique family, I thought, you bet, let’s go! They own Foxy’s Landscapes, and have been contributing their amazing design and landscaping skills to the Canberra region for years. They’ve been so busy meeting other people’s needs that they were forgetting their own. They knew that taking time for family is one way to bring the focus back to what’s important. And what better way to keep those memories alive than with beautiful photographs that authentically tell their story. Memories like…capturing Oliver’s cuteness before he starts football, Phoebe’s head full of curls, their beautiful and ever-changing garden, a work of art that is their haven.
I couldn’t wait to see this amazing home and garden that they have, and still are, creating. It is a sanctuary in which they are raising their beautiful boy Oliver and their lovely girl Phoebe.
Without further ado, I introduce to you with pleasure, Mia, Terry, Oliver and Phoebe.
Our Haven Home
Feral Beryl, as Phoebe is affectionately known.
The trampoline makes a safe place for the children to play together.
Childhood is freedom.
When we met Terry said that Oliver didn’t know how lucky he was.
Now I know why.
How amazing is their backyard!?
The swing provides many hours of kiddie fun.
Gentle swinging back and forth, back and forth.
That little neck is too scrummy.
Oliver starts to feel a tad left out of the swinging fun.
His amazing eyelashes!
He holds a freshly plucked flower in front of the camera to show.
Terry places it carefully in Phoebe’s hair.
I love that little face and the hands…gorgeous.
Beautiful Mia with flowers, a gentle breeze and soft light – the perfect picture.
This is priceless!!
How gorgeous are those toes.
Phoebe is at a very cute age, learning to walk and super cuddly.
Hey Oliver! Over here!
The Silverback Gorilla.
A book to ignite the imagination, given by a friendly neighbour.
How’s the intensity!?
The consummate artist describing his living passion – the back yard.
Terry and Mia provide a very special place to raise their children.
A little bit of dirt never hurt anyone.
An earnest discussion takes place.
Oh no! Tragedy has struck.
A change of pace, time for a swim.
Terry and Oliver lovingly lower Phoebe into the cool water.
Big strong arms.
A caring older brother and watchful father nearby as Phoebe splashes the water.
How about those beautiful ringlets and soft skin.
A big belly laugh from Oliver.
Mia takes over watching Phoebe in the late afternoon sun.
Such a simple activity but it delights everyone.
The Silverback Gorilla makes a return.
A cuddly warm body to snuggle up to.
One of many treasured family moments in the pool.
Phoebe’s shorts are about to burst!
Peace, quiet, togetherness.
Oliver reaches for a group hug.
A glorious sunset and a stunning gum tree to say good bye to the day.
Thank you Mia, Terry, Oliver and Phoebe for sharing your haven with me. It was a lovely afternoon in your beautiful home and garden with your special family. These treasured family moments will live forever on the pages of your beautiful story book and on the walls of your home.
