Who I Am

 

I love how photography can translate a feeling that is seemingly hidden and bring it to light. I love that it can then be unwrapped, opened and shared with those closest to us.

I started my photography journey on a trip to New Zealand in 2012 and now my passion has turned into a flourishing business servicing Port Stephens, Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Central Coast and New Zealand. My clients range from newly engaged couples, new parents, little tots, graceful oldies and big businesses including Jervois Steakhouse in Queenstown to the Anchorage, Balance Collective and The Hunter Valley Wedding Planner. I can handle small intimate events, large demanding briefs, fresh newborns and barking puppies, even together sometimes! Other than being a mother and wife, photography is a full time job and one which I love very much!

My photography style is based on an effort to preserve moments and tell stories humbly. I am inspired by photo journalism with its tailored approach. I chase light, emphasize relationship and encourage openness.

 As a photographer, I am transparent, you are welcome to know me so I can know you. I am not afraid to share with my clients. I search for subtleties, I get excited by smaller, less obvious things.

I love good food and even better coffee. I would consider the mountains to be my favorite landscape. I am a movie and music lover. You can often find me editing away at my desk listening to anything from Beyonce to Ed Sheeran, Anthony Hamilton to score composer Hans Zimmer.  On rainy days you’ll find me working on my novel, which has been in progress for the last ten years! My little family keep me grounded and motivated.

I love expressing emotion through words and imagery. I could do that happily forever.

I look forward to meeting you and creating magic together.
