I think I was born to be a family and wedding photographer! I know that sounds cliche, but when I was 12, I used to dress up my 6-year-old sister and make her model for me. I would snap image after image on my mum's 35mm, auto wind, film camera. Then, I would take rolls and rolls the film to the local chemist and pay extra to have them processed in the hour (the anticipation would kill me!). I lived for it. So, I studied photography at college, learnt about composition and trained in all things dark room.
Fast-forward 20 years, and I'm a mother of 3 amazing little men and a wife. Just before my 3rd son was born, my husband gave me a DLSR camera. I have not put it down since! I genuinely can't believe that I went so long without capturing the beauty of life through a lens.
My photography style is very natural. I love to capture authentic, genuine images that freeze a moment in time that you can cherish forever.
Yes, it's true I just so happen to have 3 little men in my life to look after (not to mention the bigger boy AKA my husband). I love being a mum to these crazy boys. They keep me on my toes, they make me laugh, and they just so happen to be a big advantage when it comes to being a photographer...I'm yet to come across a little person in a family photoshoot that I can't handle!!
Crossfit is an absolute love of mine and has helped me get strong. This year I achieved a goal and managed to lift 110kg deadlift. At almost 40 I'm happy with that! It was pretty exciting!!
Coffee is my best friend...I'm not one of those people that cuts out coffee....that's not me...coffee is life!
