Wife to John, a mother to three beautiful souls and a mother-in-law to the most gorgeous girl. I love a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, sharing a glass of wine with John, travelling the world, cooking, trying new things and creating new memories.
But my true passion is photography.
I am a Lifestyle Photographer. I see life through a lens. The interaction, the body language, the connection and light. I’m observant, a people watcher, an admirer, and this has helped me to capture real-life moments – the perfectly-imperfect.
Photography tells a story, the story of love, laughter, smiles and connection. It is real, it is raw. I want my clients to connect with one another, not the camera. Forget I’m there, be real, be you, have fun!
I, like many mothers, went through the majority of my children’s life without being in photos. I was overweight and never felt ‘pretty’ enough. There was always next year, I told myself. But the few photos I do have of myself with our children I cherish. I have them printed and on display. When I look at the images now I don’t see an overweight mum, I see a mum who loved her children with all her might. I am thankful to have those few photos to look at them, to hold them to remember.
My Dad passed away a little before my 15thbirthday. Like me, my Dad didn’t like having his photo taken, and sadly we have very few photos to look back on. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but these things are now what drive me. So for now I am going to call it MY WHY I want to change this for others!
I promise you’ll never regret the photos you took, but the ones you didn’t. Life is real, we put on a few extra kilos, our hair isn’t always perfect, nor is our house. I want you in the photos, I want your kids to look back in years to come and remember the moment that photo was taken and tell their children a story behind it.
If I sound like the photographer for you, Let’s Chat and make some plans!
