Thanks for being here.
I thought it was about time I introduced myself, and I’d love to get to know a bit about you too.
That’s me up there! I’m a mother of 3, and a wife to the most generous, loud talker I know. I’m a wedding and family photographer, but I really like to think of myself as a story teller. I’ve always been quite a curious person (some might say nosy), but this has come in handy, because more than anything, I’m curious about life! I’m not big on small talk (it actually makes me feel awkward) but get down into the nitty gritty of what makes you tick and I’m all ears! And, as it happens, that’s the stuff that I Iove to shoot.
When I’m not telling stories with my camera I’m making school lunches, eating homemade muesli, drinking coffee, smoothies or sparkling wine, trying to be a yogi, prancing with my three kids to @thefitnessmarshall(seriously people, get onto this, it always makes our day), and dreaming of travelling and living near the ocean. Oh, and my husband says I also complain about the weather too much.
I’ve learnt that each day is like a page in a book. It’s only part of the whole story, and that page is over so quickly, before we move onto the next.
Those first few weeks with my son or daughters flew by, and before I knew it they were six months old, and then five years old, and then nine years old.
My wedding day lasted all of five minutes.
My baby girl is about to walk through those school gates and I know she won’t be looking back. My heart breaks a little each time I see my children do this.
Unless it’s been written down, I don’t remember some of those “milestones” of my children’s short lives.
But, I’ve found my gift of being able to capture small, seemingly insignificant, moments of their lives. Small moments that actually make our lives extraordinary. These small moments that singularly are one page, but together tell our own very honest and extraordinary story.
So whether it be on your wedding day or a typical family day, I will capture those moments that fleet by, but that mean the most.
I am available for photography throughout Gippsland and Melbourne. But I also love to travel, so if you’re anywhere through Australia and New Zealand, or anywhere else, drop me a line and we can work something out.
