I live in Melbourne with my husband and our beautiful four year old girl.
I love the city with all its light and darkness, textures, trees, and laneways.
I prefer night to morning, and chai to coffee.
I love the colour green, summer breezes, my daughter’s hugs and giggles, and new shoes.
I can often be found somewhere in my imagination, or watching the clouds go by.
I love theatre and dance, the drama and the artistry.
I am meticulous, determined, a dreamer, and love anything unique and different.
And I love taking beautiful photos.
I find myself taking pictures in my mind, everywhere I go.
Photography is like having the ability to stop time,
where life meets art and creates magic.
Individual portraits are my creative favourite.
I specialise in custom portraits of children, teens and adults.
I am also experienced in model portfolio, fashion and commercial photography.
Please take a look at my blog to see my latest work.
Thank you so much for visiting. x
