A quick engagement shoot on a rainy day in front of my favourite backdrop! I'm so excited to see these two tie the knot and capture more of their personality and obvious love for each other. You were both great at relaxing and being your usual selves in front of a camera which can be totally scary!
I have been carrying out plenty of shoots for businesses to showcase their products and increase their traffic on their website and Facebook pages by having interesting and professional photos. It's so important for people to take your business seriously and for you to be proud of how you put it out there.
I can help you capture your strengths, push the products you want and create a photographic style that suits your brand and personality.

This could be the start of a modelling career for this young beauty! I think taking the plunge and booking a photo shoot if you are considering getting into modelling or making a port folio is the best way to start to see how you feel in font of a camera and learning what poses work best for you. I have just teamed up with an accessory stylist and make up artist so we can work out what style will suit you.
I’m getting a lot better at asking people how they would feel about getting some photos done when I see a unique face. This brave girl said yes and with no experience and no previous meetings with me I think she nailed it.

For a lot of consumers shopping online is the first step for reviews and to create visual expectation. If you don't have good photos, you won't attract people and they will move on to the next site untill they are impressed. Having great photos of your meals and restaurant can paint a very important picture for you business including photography of your staff working, smiling, pouring drinks and genuinely showing what sort of feeling your establishment has can really convince people that you are what they are looking for.
From personal experience of working and managing a cafe I understand how challenging it can be to advertise in a busy industry. You know you have a great establishment with a good feeling environment and a chef that know how to impress but sometimes getting people in the door and letting them know you are here can be hard. Facebook is great for updates, new items on the menu and upcoming events but we all know photos speak louder than text, what's better? Text on top of a photo. You only really have a potential customer for a few seconds on Facebook. They are either impressed and take not or just keep scrolling. With a few witty words and a gorgeous picture of your latest special you could potentially get them interested and in the door.
Spot Jim Morrison?
Male model photo shoots are really fun and don't come around often for me.
I'm really keen for more. I don't even think you need to be necessarily confident, just willing.
These photos were taken in Bluff, NZ! A beautiful place I can happily call home with some beautiful surroundings and views, its a photographers playground.
A short and sweet morning in the park with 5 different families. This worked so well!
Parents sometimes find it hard to keep children interested in smiling for the camera. We just had 20 minutes with each family and it was all we needed. Family photography is different every time. Kids are either shy for the camera or can't get enough! Babies will normally rule the photo shoot and dogs can provide some entertainment. I love it all!
Meet my beautiful sister Narnia!
This was another photo shoot that required the skill of many to create memorable photos of Narnia which she can look back on in years to come and adore. Maternity photography is so rewarding for me. I know how exciting and interesting it is waiting for the arrival of a baby and the feeling of being pregnant is one you need to record.
Styling a specific photo shoot has always been a goal for me so I decided to organise my own wedding! I know that my skill is behind the camera and know there are plenty of artistic and passionate people around me also wanting to create beautiful images. I decided rather than styling a photo shoot myself it was best to seek my favourite people in the industry and let them create for me based on the instruction that we were going for a very natural looking bride and groom.
Leaving everyone to their own creative flow meant this photo shoot was going to have a special feel to it!
I really enjoy wedding photography and have to always be mindful of time as the bride and groom have a big day and night ahead with plenty of guest waiting for them, I try and plan as much as I can so we can get as many beautiful wedding photos as possible without taking up the whole day. This is a great way for me to practise poses so I can bring them to a bride and groom for their wedding photos.
