Hi, I’m Sharyn.
I’m Australian and, ever since I was young, I’ve always had a love for our incredible landscapes and a desire to see more of this wonderful planet. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to find a way of documenting the beauty of the world around me. From learning how to develop film in a darkroom to the joy of sharing images online as I shoot them, photography has always been a huge part of my story.
About 10 years ago I went through a period where I felt overwhelmed by work and the general stress that comes along with trying to juggle modern life. Perhaps you know how that feels? As a busy wife, mother and full-time employee, I realised that I needed to make some changes so that I didn’t completely burn out. It didn’t take long for me to realise that out in nature was where I felt happiest.
To begin with, it was just me, my camera, and new places to explore. Then I began to find that I loved sharing tales from the road. From there, it seemed only natural to create a place to keep all the stories that I’d collected and document the wonderful trips that I’d had. My hope is to inspire you to go out and feel that magic for yourself.
Every image and story that you’ll find here represents a special moment that I’ve experienced. Living by the ocean in Coffs Harbour, I’m fortunate enough to have whales, dolphins, turtles and even kangaroos on my doorstep. I want to share this world with you, and for you to feel like you’re here in these wonderful moments with me. What I want, more than anything, is to leave you feeling happier for spending a little time here.
Why ‘Adventure with Coffee’? Well, I want you to come adventuring with me, and my surname really is Coffee! I’ve heard every joke possible about my name, but my favourite is “Coffee?! I need one!”. Because it’s true, you do need a Coffee in your life, and that’s me!
I’ll help you design your own travels and find those escapes when it seems like life is too overwhelming. You’ll learn about the places that make me smile, and the local spots that are the secret to any real adventure. I want you to know that there’s a big wide world out there just waiting for you. I’d love you to explore it with me.
Maybe you should grab a Coffee…
