As I mentioned, I wear a few different hats and am a photographer, mum, teacher, pharmacist, dog lover and beach goer. Photography has always been a huge interest of mine and it wasn't until I was on maternity leave that I took the time to explore this creative outlet further. Needless to say - I haven't looked back!
Now, I have three kids and all of them are my main muses. Much to their annoyance at times! My motivation for picking up my camera was (and still is) to document our lives for my kids, so that they have something concrete to look back on when they are older. Taking photos certainly isn't for me but it is for the future generations of our family to be able to understand our story and their history. This is mainly because I only have a couple of handfuls of photos of my mum, and in particular, of my mum with my brother and I. I have even fewer photos of my grandparents! Unfortunately my mum passed away when I was just 17 and trust me, I wish I had mountains of photos to look at. I truly believe that photos help to shape and solidify our memories and I don't know about any other sleep deprived mama's, but my memory feels awfully hazy these days! That brings me to my next point, having photos taken is only half of the job, the other part and somewhat more cumbersome is to have the photos printed and framed. I know myself that it is easy to have them stored on our phones and not go any further. Our home is filled with photos and every time I walk past I can't help but feel moved, happy and loved.
So, now I want to do the same for you! I want you to treat yourselves to a photography experience (yes, it is an experience !) and think of it as quality family time. Even if its a 5 yearly event! I am with you every step of the way as after your session with me you will have full access to a print store. I am able to assist in any design process for framed artwork and album creation. Do it for your kids, nieces, nephews and any significant others in your lives. Including fur babies!
Family photos but not as you know them. These moments don't last forever so capturing the smiles, expressions and laughter between you and your loved ones is priceless. My style of photography is both natural and candid, providing gentle prompts along the way to allow authentic moments to evolve. I pride myself on my ability to build a relationship with you and your little ones to have you all feeling a little more at ease behind the camera. I specialise in creating tangible memories through the delivery of high quality, heartfelt artworks to grace the walls of your home.
