FUN FACT - On my first day of Design School I was asked what type of photography I liked. I answered by saying 'anything except people, I really don't like photographing people' ... OOPS!
Truth is, I thought it was all models, fashion and stiff awkward portraiture... not my jam!
It was whilst studying that I learned you could capture people in an authentic, honest and humble way. That you could tell a story and communicate emotions all through how you photographed a person... That realisation changed my world!
I am wife to my favourite person in the world and am the self designated 'fun Aunty' of the family.
I need a cup of T2 to start my morning, 'Blue Mountains Breakfast' and 'Banana Bake' are my main jams but I can't go past 'Caramel Brownie' on my more indulgent days! I'm wild, I know!
My go to favourite movie is 'Remember The Titans' and I was once a little too obsessed with the tv show 'One Tree Hill'
To capture the season of life you are in with all of the goodness and emotions that fill it! If I can take a photo that in twenty years time, still reminds you of and fills you with that same joy you had in the moment it was taken, I've done my job!
I like to think of myself as a creator of little, happiness
time-capsules rather than a photographer.
I'm here for belly laughs, ugly cries and you can bet I want to document your hot dance moves too!
You might be thinking, 'that's great for people who feel comfortable in front of the camera, but that just isn't us!'.
Don't worry, I get it! It can feel so foreign.
So how can we make those candid, laid back and fun images happen?
It's pretty easy actually... We become friends! I want to feel like an old mate and the best third wheel you could ever have, all so that it doesn't even feel like you're on a 'photoshoot'! Rather, like you are just on an adventure with a friend. That way we don't even have to try for the laughter and candid moments... they just happen, NATURALLY!
I'll bring music so we can get in the vibe, I'll dance and make a fool of myself so that you can loosen up, I'll tell some jokes because I'm freakin' hilarious and we will just have a great time! It really is that simple, I promise!
