A little bit about me...After spending more than 10 years in business marketing in not-for profit, financial services and banking sectors both here and abroad, I decided to follow my passion in photography.
I’m a mum, who is blessed with three gorgeous children and a supportive husband. When they were little I loved capturing every little moment, from their cute belly laughs, their discoveries in the garden to excited birthday smiles. Pursing my love of photography not only has given me the pleasure to express myself artistically, but also the flexibility to dedicate time to my family.
After working in the industry for many years photographing newborns, I decided to venture out on my own and focus on would I love - portraiture - namely newborns, children and families, as well as photographing special events and entrepreneurs. Its been an awesome ride!
I love meeting all the beautiful little people and their families, and capturing lifelong memories of their loved ones. I also enjoy capturing people in business who are passionate about what they do. I love that I am continually learning my craft and get very excited behind the lens when I feel that I have captured something really special and can’t wait to share it!
My approach to each session is for my clients to enjoy the experience, relax and have some fun for me to really capture their true self. My style is quite versatile and I love using natural light. With every session, I aim to capture beautiful and natural images for you to treasure forever.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Children and Family Sessions
Sessions are either taken in the comfort of your home or an outdoor location.
I like to schedule my photos either in the mornings when the light is not too harsh or later in the afternoon when you can get that sweet afternoon sun. Younger children are also calmer in the morning after a good breakfast, and its also a good idea to bring some extra snacks. I suggest that the little ones are well rested too, as happy kids make great photos!
To add some fun and character to your session, consider bringing your child’s favourite toy, an accessory like a hat, funky jewellery, bring some balloons, a lovely picnic blanket, or quirky chair….the options are endless. I’m happy to discuss these options with you. Of-course lots of smiles and laughs are a must!!
What to wear
Wear clothing that is comfortable and you think will work well together with other family members. White tops and jeans are popular for a clean fresh look or well matched tones of colour. Layers of clothing look great in the winter. Please avoids stripes or distracting patterns as this may draw attention away from your beautiful faces :)
Newborn sessions are taken either in my natural light studio or in your home.
The best time to take newborn photos is in the first 10 days from birth as they are still very sleepy, all curled up, and a magical time to capture. Please schedule your newborn session two months in advance of your due date.
Newborn sessions are held in the mornings as newborns sleep better and are less restless than in the afternoons.
As I Iike to use as much natural light as possible, sessions at home must be well lit with natural lighting, preferably near a large window works best.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me.
