Hi there, I'm so glad you're here!

Firstly I want to tell you that I understand what it's like to ride the wave of motherhood. The good, the bad and let's be honest, sometimes the ugly. (Aren't they so cute when they're sleeping?)

I know what it's like to not want to be in front of the camera because you don't feel good about yourself. 

I also know what it's like to think "my kids won't sit still long enough to get nice photos, I'm not going to bother!"

I have had all of these thoughts, and I'm almost certain you have too!

My wake up call...

There was a moment where I realised that if I didn't do something about it, my kids wouldn't have many photos with me in them. I realised that they don't care what I look like. They love me just the way I am. There was a time where I realised that it was ok that my youngest son didn't want to look at the camera. It was ok to try something different and have photos in my own home, despite the purple wall that I didn't love, and the furniture that didn't match! To us home is (as they say) where the heart is. And let me tell you, the outcome was magical.

What I do...

I  take photos that will one day transport you back to those fleeting moments so easily forgotten. I want you to feel your son touching your arm calling out your name, or your daughter asking to braid your hair. I want you to feel how proud you were of your little one when they took their first step. I want you to feel them snuggling into the side of your arm while you watch the latest Disney movie for the 100th time.  I want you to remember the smell of your newborn as you celebrated them sleeping through the night (yay mamma)!
 

Who are you?

You are the kind of person who doesn't want the typical 'everyone look at the camera' type photos. You want real, authentic moments. You want me to tell the story of your connection, together. You are someone who isn't afraid of the chaos that is life. You embrace the fact that life is real, and real is beautiful. You love the outdoors, but you also love lazy afternoons at home. You love spending time together as a family, wherever you are.
 

My Style...

My style is all about real, raw and organic moments. I want to make you feel all the feelings! I want you to embrace your authenticity as a family. I want to help you remember one day when you're looking back on your photos, what you love most about those closest to you and how you felt when you were with them. 

Sound just like what you're after? Send me a message! I'd love to hear about your story!
