I’m a country-born, city educated, travel-thirsty Australian. We’ve returned to our roots here in Australia after seven and a half years living in Salt Lake City, USA.
I’ve been tinkering with photography for over twenty years: taking classes, obsessing over books, doing workshops online. I started my photography business in the USA – after a ten year stint working in coastal policy/coastal natural resource management in Perth and Melbourne.
I love to meet and connect with new people of all backgrounds. I love to laugh. I constantly work on myself. (I secretly love personality tests.)
I believe life can be challenging as well as hilarious and many things in between – and that most of us are doing our best. I am learning so much about life and myself from my two kids.
I couldn’t live without good espresso coffee, travel, our garden and the outdoors. We live in Olinda in the Dandenong Ranges, in a house with a roof top vegetable garden.
When I am not photographing clients I am photographing my kids, personal projects and anything in amazing light. I am represented by boutique stock photography agency Offset.

Your photos will be authentic and honest. They will show who you and your family are. During our session I will strive to capture real moments. I’ve always loved watching people and I think this comes through in my work.
You will see your photos and think ‘that’s exactly how my son is when he concentrates’; ‘that’s the connection I see between my husband and daughter’; ‘That is exactly how I felt’; and so on.
You could say my style is documentary style, though it is not photojournalism in the strictest sense. I will chat with you. I might ask you to repeat a motion I liked. If I sense you are uncomfortable I will help you relax. I may give lots of guidance – this all depends on you, your family and the type of session we are doing.
