I completed a Diploma of Professional Photography in 2012 and started my business soon after.
I’ve always been the one behind the camera, well at least since I got married 7 years ago. That’s how I began my affair with my camera . . . . . . . I kinda had a photographer crush on my own wedding photographer and soon after just started taking pics, in an effort to be just as good.
I love learning and I’m persistent.
I use to many of these . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I am whacky.
I am a mum to 2 cheeky little poppets.
I am a wife to a wonderful spunky man.
I have too many shoes and clothes that take up way too much space in my wardrobes.
I love a good cup of coffee in the morning and not the instant kind.
I love to sing, when no one’s around.
I love time with my lover, who also happens to be my husband……
I love my kids even when they make me mad and crazed
I love a good wine or cider
I dream about having year long holidays, and travelling to exotic far off places and seeing wonderful things
I have a 3 day a week career.
The other 4 days I’m a mum, a photographer, a lover, a wife and a friend!
This is what I strive for as a Photographer . . . . . . . . to be an observer who can create and capture real connections and tell an amazing story through great pictures. To capture the energy and connection between people and with me. To peel back those layers. To get the real stuff. That stunning silence between two or more people who share something only they will ever experience. I strive to feel invisible. Just an observer of something beautiful and unspoken.
My style has evolved to be mostly a fly on the wall kind of stuff, where you and your loved ones tell me the story and then I create your story with my camera.
I particularly like it when I can just hang out with you and watch you as you play, cuddle, run, smile, and laugh with your loved ones, creating your story through documenting your natural emotions, reactions, gestures and behaviours. Nothing overly forced, and all real.
Sessions can occur anywhere that is special to you or I can offer suggestions. I might even see if you’re up for a bit of an adventure and try something different. I’m not your traditional photographer where I’ll get you all to sit and pose for the camera over and over again, it’s mostly about documenting those moments shared between lovers, a parent and their babies (big, little or furry), sisters and brothers or grandparents. My aim is to produce an image that reminds you what you were thinking or how you were feeling right at that moment and hopefully evokes that same emotion or thought for years to come.
I prefer not to use a flash, and this is because I like the effect that natural or ambient lighting gives. It allows me to maintain the mood and capture emotions and reactions naturally and candidly.
If you think my style suits your personality, drop me an email and we’ll arrange to catch up for a coffee.
