Born and raised in New Zealand, I grew up with a love for art history and practical art, and I could always be found in the art studio in High School.

I started my photography career when I moved to Australia in 2000. I then spent a year living and working in China in 2002, and it was there that I discovered a love for film travel photography.

When I returned home to Brisbane, I was determined to follow my photography passion, and I focused on weddings. I then spent the next 15 years building my photography portfolio and have photographed clients in Brisbane, The Gold Coast, Toowomba, Northern NSW, Vanuatu and New Zealand.

In 2012, I was lucky to receive two Silver Awards from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography in their travel and portraiture categories.

Weddings have always been my passion, and I continue to photograph them. My favourite part of a wedding day is witnessing those private and intimate moments between a couple and their family and friends, and being able to document that for them. It’s a real privilege.

I also have a Diploma in Nursing, and I used to work as a part-time nurse in an oncology day unit. Working and connecting with people from all walks of life is something I treasure, and you can trust that I will be authentic, open and honest with you, your partner, your family and friends.

Outside of photography, I spend time adventuring with my 5yr old daughter, swimming at our local pool, hiking the local conservation parks and spending time with close friends and our two mischievous Bombay cats.
