The experience

First of all, I want you to know that for each and every session, I’m always totally present and ready to make it a unique, tailored experience for you. Something I love about photography is the power behind the images. I often find myself sipping a cup of tea, getting lost in shots of my mother and me as a child. Sadly, she is no longer with us but the warm feeling that washes through my body whenever I relive these precious memories is like nothing else on earth. I find myself smiling without even realising it. That’s the same sensation I’m trying to evoke in you, through your own images, your own story. That is why I do what I do. 

When we get together for our shoot, we’ll have already met and got to know each other a little. Then time stands still while my camera and I fade into the background and you spend some genuine time with your own tribe. No technology, no chores, no callers, no distractions. Just a slice of time for yourselves, time to create your own world, time to slow down and breathe. Inhale every moment. 

I’ve discovered whole new depths of patience from having five children of my own, so believe me when I say I’ll be calm and focused on the moments as they unfold. I won’t miss a thing. Wind blowing your hair? Don’t stress. Let it go. It creates a moment that can’t be fabricated. Trust me to capture it. Your child gets upset? No problem at all. Hold them, sing softly to them, until it feels like their body is part of yours. You can’t fake that pose. That’s what it’s all about. No awkwardness, no counting from three, no saying ‘cheese!’. Just a whole lot of love from being close to those you cherish the most. 

 

As a lifestyle photographer in Mount Isa, I’m looking to capture the moments in between. The emotional shorthand we develop with those closest to us. The subtle, tireless affection of everyday love. That’s what drives my photography.

I want you to be seen for who you really are. I want your family to see and feel these images when they look at them for years to come, the same way I do with my own family. I’m an extremely emotional being and I prioritise the emotion behind the images above everything else. I’ll work tirelessly to bring them out. 

Lastly, I promise not to let you feel lost and awkward when you’re with me. Believe me when I say, you are safe in my hands. All you need to do is trust. I’ve got you.
