Well, gosh I absolutely love what I do, it truly doesn’t feel like ‘work’. Meeting all you special people at different stages of your life. I am so incredibly passionate about what I do, I love, love! All types of love, family love, newborn love, couple love, business love…. Gimmie all of the love!
I adore capturing emotive, beautiful, messy and real memories, memories that tell your story. I promise to make your session as enjoyable and relaxed as possible. I am also obsessed with capturing special mini movies as an addition to your session ~ these are an extra unique keepsake for you and your loved ones for forever.
I’m a natural light, lifestyle photographer. I aim to document your story in a natural, authentic and a meaningful way; capturing those images of connection, love, rawness and absolute pure joy. No need for classic cheesy group photos with me; I am all about natural, relaxed vibes and letting moments unfold organically. There is no pressure to be perfect, I embrace the wild and beautiful chaos that is family. My tones are warm, fresh, earthy and I love me a good black and white image, something so very timeless with them. Just know my heart and soul has gone into every single session.
Yay ~ it fills me with so much happiness you are loving my vibe and want me to capture a special moment in your life. The sooner you reach out the better as I do book out months in advance but I will always do my best to accommodate you. You can fill out an enquiry form on my ‘Say Hello’ page here. You can also chat to me first via email or Instagram DM or even a phone call to make sure we're a good fit 🙂
Yes. A deposit of 30% is required once your booking date is chosen. This booking fee will secure this date for you and will be deducted off your total remaining balance. The remainder is due two weeks before your actual session.
I sure do! Having these memories are so special and important, I aim to make my photography as affordable as possible. If your chosen package is currently out of your budget, or if you wish to purchase any additional photo products (prints etc..) but need time to pay them off, I am more than happy to discuss payment options with you and to create a suitable payment plan together.
I get super excited to share your images with you after your session. I do my best to post a little sneak peek to my instagram 3-4 days after the session. Then, I typically will have your whole gallery edited in 3 weeks, sometimes even sooner. However, as a mum myself I ask for 4 weeks at the most in case unforeseen things arise. Films are ready in up to 6 weeks after our session time.
I'm a firm believer in keeping everything as natural as possible and celebrating you and your body just the way you are. I don't do any body retouching, however I can clear skin from temporary blemishes/scratches etc if you ask me.
Once a deposit is paid and a date is locked in I have a questionnaire I send through to find out some more details about you and what you would like to remember/ capture in this session. From this we decide on the perfect location for our time together. I will also send you a guide to assist you with wardrobe and with what to expect from your session.
I have three young kiddies of my own, so I totally get it! Some days they are just crazy, or they haven’t slept, or have slept too much or don’t want to wear the shoes you put on their feet?… Please don’t worry! Even if there is a meltdown there will still be so many sweet moments captured that you didn’t even know existed. Trust me. I will always direct you and give you space if they need time to calm and resettle. Often these are the precious snuggly moments that photograph so beautifully. I make my sessions as enjoyable and play based as I can as I want the kiddies to enjoy themselves as much as possible.
Being a mum myself very much understand that things pop up out of our control with illness etc. If you can please provide more than 24 hours notice to try to allow me enough time to rebook someone then we can transfer your deposit to another date that suits. If it is within 24 hours and I am unable to fill the spot on such short notice you may be a risk of losing your deposit. If you can reach out to me as soon as possible, we will go from there.
I know the weather has been so unpredictable and this can potentially impact our session. In the contract you will sign it covers you for this circumstance. I do love an overcast moody session, even wind can still work in our favour but if it is raining or there are severe weather warnings we will reschedule for another time that suits.
I capture elopements, intimate weddings and would be honoured to join as a second shooter. I love capturing the unique story of your love for each other in all its forms and that includes couples! Please reach out to me via the ‘Say Hello’ page here and tell me a little more about your story and what you are looking for and I'll be in touch. I only take on limited amount of weddings and elopements per year so please don’t leave it too late.
I call Newcastle home although I have been to sessions at Port Stephens, Maitland, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and even Sydney. I’m always up for an adventure so please reach out if you had a location in mind, I’m even happy to fly to somewhere fun but note a travel fee for outside of 30kms of Newcastle CBD will apply.
I capture outdoors sessions at sunrise and sunset. If the session is at sunrise we will meet at the location of choice 15 minutes prior to sunrise and if you have booked in a sunset session I typically begin these around 75 minutes before the sun sets. If you've chosen an in home session we will schedule it for the time where we will get the best natural light inside, these usually begin around 9.30am.
