I provide beautiful photography for families, children, newborns and tiny weddings and elopements.  

Things I adore include photographing beautiful souls - young and old, music and gigs, CATS, all the colour, rainbows, eco glitter, stars and caffeine.  ​ I'm an obsessive perpetual studier.  And those are my 4 beautiful children up there, I adore them too.

If you can imagine a sparkly, rainbow fluff-kitten with a camera and a great eye, you've found me.

I'm totally in love with documenting beautiful memories during these amazing milestones, it's a total priviledge to be beside you as you become parents, marry or as your littles grow.

My elopement and small wedding photography philosophy is all about authentic and classic storytelling, with a quirky and vibrant twist.  If you two are after a photographer that is all down with truly being part of your day, if you are after a bit of hilarity and a few hugs, and if you are after some gleeful enthusiasm, I might just be the one for you.  I'm currently taking on weddings with a maximum of 3 hours coverage.  I welcome with open arms all couples and are super inclusive, totally happy to work with the needs of you and your guests.  They used to call me Captain Flexible, you know...

I am a fully trained and registered (former) early childhood teacher with 15 years experience and yes - I totally love kidlets and their exuberance!  I have bonus experience working with families and children with special needs also.  I really enjoy catching children being just who you know them as.  I am comfortable with location shoots, home based journalistic lifestyle, and studio photography.

I have a NZ Diploma in Photography, a Certificate in Art and Creativity, a Diploma in Art and Creativity and a NZ Diploma in Creativity (Level 6), as well as a Bachelor of Education (Birth-8) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education.  And exactly 50% of an applied science and sustainability degree.  I'm studying again, doing the Level 7 Diploma in Art and Creativity (Advanced).  Sucker for punishment for sure!
