I feel so blessed that I get to create, work and do what I truly love, which is photography and photographing people, who continually fascinate, interest me and bring me great joy. Photography is about engaging people and this is what I do best.
The types of shoots that I have done range from wedding, family, engagement, bridal shower, event, party, commercial and real estate photography. I make them special by being me! I have this uncanny ability to make people laugh, put them at ease and ensure that they end up actually enjoying their shoot with me!
I have won many awards over the years but the past few have been: - Winner of the 2017 SAAS History Festival's Photography Competition.- Winner of the Photography Section of the 2016 Walkerville Rotary Art Show.- Highly Commended in the Monochrome Section of the 2016 Blackwood Rotary Art Show.- Semi Finalist in the Moran Contemporary Photographic Art Prize September 2015.- 1st Prize in the Colour Section of the 2015 Blackwood Rotary Art Show.- Highly Commended in the Colour Section of the 2014 Blackwood Rotary Art Show.- 1st Prize in the One Shot International Traveller Magazine May - June 2013 edition.- Top 10 Finalist in the 1st Australian Gourmet Traveller Magazineâ€™s Travel Photography Competition and Exhibition and printed in the May 2013 edition.
I studied classical ballet from a small child to an adult, attending the Australian Ballet School in Melbourne. This taught me discipline, determination, dedication, patience, organisation and allowed my creative side to soar.
