a little about me...

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a camera around my neck. So much so that by the time I was in my early twenties, I was my family’s resident photographer for weddings and special occasions. Before long, my friends were calling upon me and before too much longer, I realised I loved it so much, that I had to do it for a living. I did some formal training, and I’ve been photographing weddings pretty much every weekend since.

​I live in the Illawarra region with my two teenage daughters and gorgeous-but-crazy absolutely adorable fat cheek toddler. I’m lucky to live in such a beautiful, laid-back part of the world; but one of the things I love about my job is travelling to new places to capture beautiful weddings in different surroundings, from Bathurst to the Blue Mountains, from Sydney, Cairns to New Zealand.

There’s one thing you should know about me: I’ll never ask you to stare into your partner’s eyes. To me the natural, candid moments are by far and away the best. They are the moments that you’ll remember. I have lots of little tricks up my sleeve to help you feel relaxed and have a laugh. I’m also discreet, organised and unflappable.

Whether you’re after wedding photography, family photography or marking another special occasion, I can tell the little stories of your life in beautiful pictures.
