A little about me...

A collector of moments...

I have a memory of visiting my grandmother when I was young, and her next-door neighbour invited us into her home. It was dark inside to keep the hot sun out, and it was wonderfully cool in her home. She made us ice cream spiders, and the moment felt so magical. It was a small moment, an in-between moment. One filled with wonder, and connection. I've been told that I'm an old soul and filled with nostalgia, which is probably true. Personally, I think I am a collector of moments, and I always have been. It's just that now I have a camera to help me collect these moments.

Most days,

You find me chasing my 5 kids, coffee in one hand and camera in the other. A smile on my face as I capture the beauty that I see in my ordinary life. I am a motherhood photographer, a still-life photographer, a lifestyle photographer. I like to colour outside the lines and put images together that don't usually go together.  I am storyteller, a book reader, and a cake baker.

On most days, I am a beautiful mess. 


“She brings a camera everywhere, notices the little things,
gets a cup of coffee at a different cafe, takes the long way home”.

Living in the Hills...

We have been gypsies for the last twenty years; living by the ocean, by the river, in the city and the country. We lived in New Zealand, Brazil and we now find ourselves back in the Hills District of Sydney. We decided to pause our adventures to let our teenagers finish school, and so we will be here for a while. I somehow managed to find our home that looks out over gum trees and tree ferns; I am smitten with my daily view.

And because my adventurous soul gets restless sometimes, I love to explore and to visit all parts of Sydney for family sessions. My dream is to travel the world to capture the beautiful mess of motherhood and their families, so don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to come and play in your backyard, wherever that may be.
