Family photos to enjoy now...and to cherish later.

Imagine the feeling of seeing your family in beautiful photos that tell the story of your everyday? Precious moments that feel like they'll be there forever but in reality are so fleeting.  

That’s my focus. I take family photos with a storytelling approach, that radiate with moments of love, connection and authenticity. I work with natural light and won't ever ask you to smile. Everything is as it is.  And yes - you are in the family photos too because even if you don’t feel so photogenic now, and as easy as it is to hide behind a camera (just ask me!), in the future you and your kids will love images that show how life was, with everyone included. 




Apart from me being there, it’s otherwise a normal day for you - and simply as you are is perfect. After a family photo session I’m often told that it was like having a friend around, or that my presence was forgotten and I love both of these descriptions.


The family photos you receive are as unique as you are. They contain a beautiful, emotive and authentic viewpoint of you. There will be some natural portraits of the kids, some photos with you all together, and a lot showing the love and laughter (and sometimes a chaos) that makes up a day.

About me.

I create fun, dynamic, creative images that capture the emotion and connection that makes up your everyday. Imagine going back in time, ten years from now, and reliving it - and also giving your kids the chance to gleane another insight into their childhood.

Before being a family photographer I worked in education - in classrooms and programs spanning six countries (my home country New Zealand, and Japan, India, Bangladesh, Germany and Cambodia). I love the inquisitiveness and creativity of children, and they feel comfortable around me knowing I value them as individuals. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a camera in hand and now I get to blend my two backgrounds to create images that document the beauty of your unique family life.  


“OMG - the photos exceeded all my expectations and so perfectly capture us!! I felt very emotional seeing them for the first time, as I didn’t think our everyday ‘normal’ could look so significant.

The photos really captured so many special everyday moments we so often take for granted.” ​
