“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving . What you have caught on film is captured forever. . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind
My work …
Au naturel is my thing! I work primarily with natural light as I love the results of warm and organic photos. My favourite thing to photograph is people, especially your candid, spontaneous expressions and moments.
Whether you have a beautiful bump, want to capture your baby’s early weeks or months, document your tot’s uninhibited nature, take those all important family portraits (we all get older way too fast!), or want to celebrate your coupling with your partner, I would love to be part of capturing those priceless memories for you!
I love my two gorgeous girls, kissing my husband, films! film! films!, crazy-dancing around the living room with my daughters, FOOD (especially sushi and Malaysian), a wet cappuccino, travelling to new places, the sight, sound and smell of the ocean, beach huts, good manners, common sense, cuddles, laughing till it hurts and how old photos of my mum brings tears and smiles at the same time.
I love kids and I’m good with them. They say it how they see it, and how they see it is what I love. Luckily, they seem to like me back; perhaps they can sense my reluctance to fully grow up! Rest assured, I will make efforts to put the little ones at ease during the photo session. I get my shots by working around them and seeing what unfolds, not making them solely take direction from me. Almost all my favourite photos of kids are “in between” shots when nobody is telling them how to be!
You don’t have to be a kid for us to get along! All my past occupations have involved meeting and working with people of all faces and places on a daily basis; that was the most appealing part of all the jobs.
There are many great photographers out there, I believe there are two main factors in choosing the right one for you. Firstly, style. Choose a photographer that takes photos in the style you like. Secondly, personality. This is vital. If you don’t connect or feel comfortable with the photographer, don’t book them. It goes without saying that you need to feel completely at ease and trust the person who is going to do something as intimate as capture part of you forever.
If you are looking for a photographer and like my style of photographs, please contact me to arrange a no obligation chat or meet-up, and perhaps we can create some memories together.
