Being passionate is the primary ingredient to living a satisfied life, and I am lucky enough to live a life full of passion!

Currently residing on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, with my gorgeous partner and 2 amazing little girls, I am constantly in awe of the beauty that I am surrounded by; in nature, in landscape, and in people. One great passion in my life is to capture this beauty through the lens, recording life’s great moments and mysteries in a way that conveys true emotion.

Having such broad experience and interests, photography is a medium in which to express all facets of my being, and as such you will see a wide variety of photographic content on this site; from landscapes to the most breathtaking human forms, from the wonders of childbirth to the creation of corporate identiy.

I would love to talk with you about capturing your moments, so please connect with me to discuss how we can capture those important events in your life forever.

Love Knows No Bounds – Lili & Daniel

Love truely knows no bounds – and one thing I just love about our world today is that it truly is such an incredibly small place. Within a day, sometimes two, you can be in another country – on another continent, surrounded by different sounds, sights and smells. And I just love it when cultures connect and form bonds that are truly magical.

Love is – Wedding of Lyndsay & Katie

There are some moments that truly lift the soul. That bring a smile to every ounce of your being. On the 29th of August, 2015, at the wedding of Lyndsay and Katie, as they committed themselves to one another, I experienced one of those such moments. The love, joy, excitement, and overwhelming happiness was tangible.

Seeing Double - Alise & Meghan Murray

I love what I do – I love capturing moments in time, and creating art from beauty – and I was very excited when I was asked to photograph the Murie twins before they set off to conquer Europe, and that’s exactly what they have done!

The McKay Family

I’ve had the privilege of knowing the McKay family for a little while now. Scott has the tortuous task of trying to whip me into shape several times per week, and I’ve been very lucky to have shot this little family when it was just 3 – and now it is 4!

Alyce & Hayden - A Love Story

This amazing world we live in is full of love stories, and the best chapters start with “I do”. It was my absolute privilage to capture the wedding of Alyce and Hayden in April, as they started this new chapter with a close circle of family and friends.

New Beginnings - Ruby Grace

There is nothing quite as magical as welcoming a new little life into a family, and a few months ago I was so privilaged to take some “welcome” photos for my very dear friends Kerry and Sarah. Little Ruby Grace was around 2 weeks old here, and its amazing to look back on these and think about how tiny she was (she’s really growing up now!)

Passionate Beginnings - Lissa & Beau

I love weddings, but I love them even more when I have shared parts of my own journey with the bride or groom. When Lissa contacted me about capturing her wedding I couldn’t have been more thrilled! Lissa had worked for me in the past, and this was a great opportunity to reconnect and share in such a special occasion in her life.
