I am an Auckland based photographer, Mother of four beautiful daughters and wife to my amazing husband and partner of 12 years. I have been photographing for 9 years and had the very special honor of documenting birth for the past 7 years. I am accredited with the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography and recently gained my Master of Photography status (MNZIPP) I am also an active member of the Auckland NZIPP committee. I have been very fortunate to have my work featured both on the cover and inside National and International publications, winning photographic awards as well as providing images to national DHB's and birthing specialists for educational use.
I love all things birth and babies, I love documenting amazing moments and especially love being able to document those priceless moments that during a birth would otherwise go unseen. I love the families I am lucky enough to work with and it is such a pleasure documenting for them as they expand and grow. I have captured many different birthing environments and situations, have developed amazing connections and friendships with clients and within the industry as well as having my own birth documented (that's my ugly cry face above!) this has enabled me to discreetly and confidently step into any birthing situation and capture it seamlessly.
I love meeting new people and I am always up for a coffee and a good yarn so if you're a Mumma or Papa wanting to know more or a fellow photographer wanting to connect please feel free to contact me via the contact page.
I look forward to hearing from you xx
