My Why.

I have been taking photos (regularly) now for almost a year…and LOVE it. It is funny to think that a year ago I was the girl who couldn’t be bothered taking pictures, or I was just too busy to think of it! Having travelled a bit, my dad would often tease me saying I would take one photo for every country I had been.

SO WHY? Why and where did I begin?

After my dad passed away in October 2012, I really realized the value of a photo. My mom and dad had travelled to New Zealand, where I had been travelling & living for 8 months. Dad was the typical tourist taking photos on his iPad!! As embarrassing as it may have been, words cannot describe how thankful I now am for these photos. Dad passed away in New Zealand, and ever since I have been snapping photos.

Although not the best photos, I cherish each and every one I have with my dad.


I LOVE being able to give friends (and clients, soon to be friends) photos they will cherish.

Thank you all for the love and support!

"Listen. A healthy relationship isn't living vicariously through one and other. True love isn't someone being there at your side every moment of every day, but being free, and encouraged, to pursue your own passions, and then sharing in the spoils of your triumphs together." - Beau Taplin I've been dreaming about doing a photo session on my in-laws place since I first started taking photos. It is one of the most incredible places. And what better couple to pose for these photos than my sister-in-law & her boyfriend!

Show me love ♡ It's not often that I tear up during a session, but something about my friends, their love, in a beautiful location on the back of my camera brought some water to my eyes....or maybe it was the wind in my face. (haha) Either way, the afternoon was magical, don't you think?! This photo seriously makes me smile every time I see it! There is something about capturing the connection between two people that I absolutely love. Often, it isn't the perfectly posed photos that tug at your heart strings, but those moments between; when you can feel the love from a photo. Happy Monday!
