In my heart of hearts, I have always seen myself as an artist, a painter and a photographer. I adore dress ups, clothes, babies, children and art. 

I’ve studied Arts/Law, worked for a media agency and been a teacher, however I found my true place when I was accepted into National Art School. I majored in photography and discovered my passion. In 2001 I launched my own photography business in an age where we still worked in film.

Life has taken me on a fascinating journey through 29 countries, numerous adventures and I even learnt to dance along the way. Now I’m here, doing what I truly love - photographing babies, families, love, weddings and celebrations 

My photos have been commended for their technical and artistic strength, leading to exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne. I have won several awards, including the “Project Wall” at the Australian Centre for Photography (2001). I was a finalist in “Shutterbug” in Paddington (2007) and exhibited in “Art and About” in Hyde Park (2004). In 2103 I was published in Capture magazine’s “Annual” with a portrait of a child, and was a finalist in “Head On”.

With 15 years experience in portraiture, my talent lies in soulful, black and white imagery that tells a story. I actively connect with children and adults to evoke their emotive and playful sides. All of this works together to allow me to create classically beautiful, timeless and evocative imagery that you will cherish for years to come.

I’d love to have the chance to take beautiful photographs you will treasure.
