how i work

The images I make come from a place of striving for a deeper meaning in all that I do. I don't try to make picture perfect portraits, have everyone smiling at the camera and wearing matching outfits - quite far from that. 

My photography is inspired by light, emotion, movement and connection. It's these things that I try to capture about you, your family or your work. The little details, the things that change so slowly over time that you forget to document them. It's the little things we do every day that make up our lives, and even though life is often messy and chaotic it doesn't mean that it's not beautiful and worth preserving.

Perfection, for me, is all of your imperfections. How your children won't sit still, how parenting makes you so dog-tired you can't remember your own name, how you can't keep your house tidy because you've chosen to fill it with babies and toddlers and animals, and how much you love your partner even though romance has been replaced by arguing about who got more sleep last night. All of this is perfect to me, because that's what it means to be a family.

My approach is gentle, and full of fun. We will spend time playing, laughing and connecting. We'll talk about your family, what inspires you, where you're from and where you're going. I want you to be relaxed, to be yourselves, and to not worry about who is jumping on the bed, not looking at the camera, or pulling all the toys out from the cupboard, because these are all the things I'm gonna ask you to do anyway.

So let's hang out, bare footed, with a cup of coffee and get to know each other.
