So its pretty safe to admit that I am a little late to the Infocus conference/Iris awards debrief party.  My tardiness in no way reflects the enormity of my emotions over what was one of the most fabulous few days of my photographylife to date. I initially wasn't going to enter the Iris awards this year (due to all sorts of reasons - nerves, downright fear, being too busy yadayadayada) but late one night (minutes before the close of entries) I bit the bullet and entered some images.  This resulted in a last minute printing mission for the wonderful team at Queensberry - who To View More >>

Over the last year or so I have been lucky enough to work with the wonderful Annick from Textstyle a fabulously talented writer and stylist.   We have been in homes all over New Zealand that are creative, stylish and fully deserving of the house envy they have envoked in me.  I'm thrilled that my photography has been featured in the wonderful Your Home & Garden magazine and I hope to continue contributing to this and other publications.  I have to admit to being over excited at each new issue & seeing my images in circulation makes me feel like a child on Christmas To View More >>

A wee while ago I photographed this sweet wee man & he was such a delight! This is one of my favourite new born shoots to date... the cuddles were delicious too. If you are expecting, or know someone who is - I urge you to think about a new born shoot. Newborns are precious and simply perfect so why not capture these gorgeous fleeting moments! It is best to get in touch before your due date to book your session. New born's photograph best between 5 & 14 days old when they are still curly & sleepy like wee Lucas! To View More >>
