Hervey Bay, Queensland
Maternity, Birth, Newborn and Family Photographer
For ever since i remember i have loved photographs, i loved looking through photographs as a child of when i was a baby and of my parents when they were young. Then through out my teenage years i had film cameras which drove my mum insane about paying for all my rolls of films, I loved taking photos of family, friends, special events. Then came digital camera, i think my first was like a fancy one and it was 5mp camera with a 128 mb card. Well i loved it, allowed me to take TONS more photos and i would spend time and money printing out every single one of them. This was when i was in my last year at high school.
When i had my first child my photographing sky rocketted. Of course i made this little human i wasnt going to miss out on those tiny hands and feet.
Then i purchased my first 'big' DSLR camera. I feel in love with the ability to control the camera and turn my images into something i love. That was 9 years ago now.
It wasnt until 2013 that i started taking my photography to the next level and started taking photos of other people. I begged family and friends for the opportunity to take their photos, My camera was strapped to me constantly.
The biggest push behind my love of taking photos stems from memories, i am a hoarder of memories, i have all the letters my friends wrote my in high school stuck in scrap books, Little pieces of 'stuff' that i held onto because i wanted to remember that time. But photos, well i love photos and that they have the ability to take you back to that time, Those feelings you had. The ones that pull on my heart strings the most are the ones where i have just given birth to our children. you remember the pain, the strength that you had to pull from inside and the over whelming love for this tiny little person that you have just waited 9 months to cuddle and hold in your arms. For me, photography is about capturing those memories.

Photographing families at such significant stages for me is my way to give to others the love i have for capturing memories. I really want you to have these photos to cherish, there are sessions where while editing it has taken my breathe away because the memory of the moment would be something i would cherish.
Everyone has the ability to capture those precious memories and moments, The phone in your hand is the perfect device to capture that split second moment your child is doing something for the first time, or something funny. Or it may be a loved one that it might be the last time you see that person. Been able to look back of those photos when your children are older, or that time in your life has changed or that person has passed, can rip you from reality and instantly transport you back to that time. And for your children, it could mean having those pictures of you after you have gone. So i want you all to take those photos of your children, special events, everyday life when the house is a mess and you feel like your going insane. Also be in those photos, and mums we are all self conscious about something we could point it out in every picture but your children don't see those imperfections they see you, their mother.
