Sentimental. This explains how I got here. When I was young I spent countless hours flipping through our family photo albums, admiring the precious photographs of my four siblings and I when we were younger: the pictures of day-to-day things, my parents when they were children, my grandparents many years ago. I was inspired by the way our lives have been documented and I knew, even then, that I wanted to share this feeling with other people. Now, at twenty three, I recognise that photography is a gift; it captures and preserves feelings and moments, and grows in value as the years pass. Aside from being besotted with my job, I am also travel obsessed, a baby lover & into long, luxurious coffee dates.
My approach to photography is both natural and gentle. To capture people comfortably and candidly this is paramount. For weddings, I like to meet the couple first and discuss their individual needs and plans before we move forward. This way, when one of the most important day of your life arrives, we are comfortable already. For baby, family and couple portraits, your session details are created under your direction and desired outcomes. However, no matter the occasion, new baby or wedding, you can always be sure my passion for what I do will be alive in full force.
Illuminating connection is the mantra that has evolved from my preferred style of photography. The way I pose and direct my clients revolves around this; focusing heavily on genuine human interaction. It's the thing we crave most, and preserving it is something truly special.
I enjoy a minimalistic style of editing using simple adjustments of tones and light, rather than large distortions, as this often moves away from the true image. I want my photographs to be timeless, in other words, I want my photographs to still be considered classic as the years pass and styles, trends and fashion changes.
I enjoy photographing weddings just as much as I enjoy photographing new babies & loved up families. For this reason, my wedding season is capped at 25 weddings per season (August through to April) and five newborns per month. Family sessions & newborn bookings are often booked up to six months in advance, so please fill out a contact form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. In addition, I am available for both interstate and overseas travel. Current dates can be found under the "destinations" tab and enquiries can be posted through my contact form.
