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 >>

This was such a lovely session with Jenna and Paul! The best was that it meant I finally got to put together Jenna's maternity series photo - damn this wonderful woman has rocked her pregnancy!  This has felt like the loooongest pregnancy ever - we took the first image in the series at 13 weeks and the last at 39 weeks - I've been so excited to put together & I'm so pleased with how it turned out!     We braved the icy wind the other evening (I did feel guilty as I smoothed away goosebumps) and got some wonderful shots that capture this special time not to mention the love To View More >>
