  • Welcome

    Specialising in newborn, maternity, birth & labour photography.

    I'm a New Zealand girl born and bred, I arrived on Australian shores in 2004. Later that year it was a typical boy met girl story, and I found myself married, with two little boys, a floppy cat and a rather silly dog living in tropical Townsville in North Queensland.

    Photography for me started off wanting to take beautiful photos of my two boys 24/7. Wanting to capture every moment of their lives, their little faces in every emotion and every instance whether it be laughing, crying, sleeping or snuggling.

    From there the obsession with photography grew, wanting to learn more. With the support and encouragement from friends, family and my loving husband, I am now enjoying taking photos for others. I am still obsessed with learning and experimenting and still photograph my boys on a daily basis...its a good thing they love the camera!

    Please enjoy looking through my photos, see what I do, and don't hesitate to contact me.

McLaren Boys Christmas Shoot…Take 1

I’m a true believer that you don’t need 101 baubles to make a Christmas photo special. A few christmas items and a simple theme and you can get some beautiful images for Christmas and still manage to have a lot of fun! These two little boys are my very own, love their cheeky little faces to bits! I feel like I’ve not photographed them in ages, I gave up along time ago getting them to smile for the camera and now just enjoy capturing them having fun and getting up to typical little boy mischief. Hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!
