I am 44 years of age, and live in the Hutt Valley, Wellington, with my partner and our two boys aged 11 and 7 years; (and a cat called Pippin!)
After originally working as a legal receptionist when I left school, and realising I had a creative side I wanted to explore, I began working for a photography studio in the city. I was practically thrown in the deep end, after a short training period photographing weddings and portraits. I was hooked, and eager to learn more; and I haven't looked back since!
I worked full-time for 12 years, photographing families (including pregnancy and newborns), glamour portraiture, and a little commercial work. After this time I left to start a family; this of course kept me busy, but I continued to do various jobs from home. And naturally, my boys provided the perfect subjects, many times, hence my love of photographing children.
Photography to me, is a way of life, in both my business, and also my personal life, creating images as an artform. I couldn't image, or bear, not being able to indulge in this ever evolving and incredibly satisfying craft.
My aim is for you to have images displayed in your home - whether on the wall, a shelf, or in an album - that you will always view with pride. I believe they should evoke feelings; what you feel each time you see them, is very important to me.
I create simple, timeless images, and love adding a touch of spirited playfulness and whimsy to them.
I can honestly say, my craft truly is my passion - I'm really driven by the desire to do what makes me happy. I'd love to share it with you..
