About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

Wishing you all the Christmas magic from our family to yours!





I will be taking a few days off to enjoy some time with my family. Back in January with some wedding posts for the new year.

Thank you for your kind words, it is always nice putting faces to the "stats" of the blog.
I know your beautiful side of the world my husband has family in Grenada - so I have been fortunate enough to see your corner of the globe!

Today is a public holiday and we have decided to make it a long weekend away. Back in the office on Monday.


I thought I had better do an itty bitty post this morning as it's been a bit sparse on the wedding side. A sneak peak of what is yet to be posted.

A sneaky back-dated post...


I thought I was going to get off scot-free by not posting the boys' birthday bash on the blog, but, then one very clever bugger asked why the party wasn't here.


Apologies, dear blog readers, as I do realise you're not that engrossed with the antics of their birthday shindig.


In any case, it was a safari in the Serengeti for Jake and, of course, for Liam, a repeat of last years theme, cars.


Two fire engines and an ambulance arrived at the venue, treating the boys and their guests to rides around the neighbourhood.


There you are boys, posted and done.

I know first hand, as a photographer, that there are thousands of images of those people around us captured by the flicker of the lens, but none, or very, very few, actually includes us within the frame.


This year, I received an amazing gift (twice), which was, incredibly, a shoot with my children and I.


When Joretha (a wedding photographer herself) contacted me earlier this year, to photograph her family, I knew it was due time to pay this gift forward.


Here you are, Joretha, a few of my favourites:
