The face behind the camera

In 2006 I made the decision that I wanted to put a pause on my marketing career and take a side-step into a more creative field.


Now, 13 years on, I have thrown myself headfirst into the photography world. I spend so much time looking for light, even when there isn't a camera in my hand. More importantly, I look for the emotion. I find myself being drawn to images that make my heart soar or sink in equal measure. Creating a feeling, rather than something pretty to look at.


I've been photographing families in the greater Brisbane area for over 10 years now. Young families, old families, small families and big family gatherings of 20-30 people. I have a particular love for dogs, and their families. Over this time I've photographed many other things, however my heart always brings me back to the family unit and how special and important that is for us throughout our lives.


One thing is for sure, I have been so fortunate to meet so many amazing families. Some that have become my friends, some that have come back year after year . And I'm so thankful for the trust they put in me, to capture their family memories.


Yes, I am an award winning photographer, however you probably don't care too much about that. You just care that I am going to capture your family the way you see it, so you can look back on these memories for years to come.


I would dearly love to capture your family memories. Let's get in touch.

of photographyoutsideYES, but what do you do


  • I drink a lot of coffee,
  • I am a parent to 2 teens, 1 almost teen, and 1 active dog
  • I run, a lot with my dog (hence why I drink lots of coffee)
  • I love summer days spent with my feet in the pool and winter nights beside the fire.
  • I will and do travel, anywhere, anyhow, anytime.

I can't wait to meet you, let's have a coffee.

When people look at my pictures, I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.
