I woke up this morning and my first thought was, naturally, coffee, then, how freaking lucky am I to do what I love as a job and meet all these crazy, weird, gorgeous people all over the place, take their photos and be part of their lives for a few hours? At my sessions I get to hang out with people who aren't afraid to be themselves and share their stories. They laugh, sometimes they even cry and it's all just seriously so fun and beautiful. Everyday I am thankful.
I salute the mess of life, the imperfect relationships, the beautifully and superbly chaotic and different. I kiss the toes of those who are brave enough to just be themselves, and not feel like they need to project an image of perfection to the world. I love edgy people who feel like they don't quite fit the mould, who headbutt against the conventional, who don't believe in "should's" and who make no apologies for doing so. You guys are my tribe.
My photography style has been described as connected, honest and real. If you're wanting posed, cheesy, smiley photos then I'm probably not the right photographer for you. I am drawn to real people and beautiful spaces, I crave gorgeous light and I live for authentic moments. Moments with soul. Moments with depth. Moments that you will look back on and FEEL something. I want to tell the whole story of real people just like you.
At home I am Mumma Archie, I am in love with my beautiful bearded love Aidan (insert heart eyes emoticon here) and I'm co-parent to his two gorgeous babies Tallulah and Albie. I drink a lot of coffee which likely contributes to my anxiety, I watch too much Netflix and I have a special place in my heart for breakfast foods. We call Melbourne home.
I am a A Canon USA Ambassador, A Click + Co CMPRO and the co-founder of The Lifestyle Collective. I am fully insured, I am up to date with my immunisations (including the whooping cough booster) and I hold a Working With Children card.
In 2017 and 2018 I am speaking/teaching at events and photographing families all over the world including the following cities: Stockholm, London, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New Orleans. Hit me up if you're in one of these cities and would like a session!
Get in touch - let's tell stories and make something beautiful together.
