A trained photojournalist, and having photographed over 500 weddings, events, families, and couples, I have the experience, skillset, and knowledge to take true documentary photos that tell the real story and personality of you and your loved ones. I have a naturally creative eye, therefore being artistic, seeing things from another perspective, chasing the light and looking for pockets of light, creating dynamic compositions, and getting down to your child’s eye level is how I capture life through their eyes. It’s an enjoyable and rewarding job, and I am a true perfectionist in what I do, but more than anything I'm passionate. You won’t be disappointed.

I have a very relaxed style of photography and like to let things unfold naturally, encouraging children to run around and explore so that I can see them naturally, keeping them engaged and capturing their individual expressions and unscripted moments, this is the point in lifestyle photography. I’m always happy to give gentle direction with any type of portrait and even with family lifestyle sessions, I will generally take a handful of group photos, parent and child portraits, and individual photos of the child/ children, aiming for a mix of a small number somewhat posed as well as the main bigger bulk of the images being un-posed and true.

They don’t have to be elaborate affairs, some of my favourite photos were normal, simple, everyday moments - captured beautifully and naturally, using natural light, which I’m known for.
