Photographer | Perth

Sunset shooter. Visual Poet. Preserver of Moments

Mother. Wife. Creative. Introvert. 

People can be given plenty of labels.

For me, really, it’s about seeing the beauty behind a role or a label.  The real truth of who we are as human beings and allowing light that is both inside and outside a person to shine.  

My Story

How I Got Started

While I am the wife of Chris, the mum of Lucas, Flynn and Adeline, the introvert who loves celebrating women creatively, I am, by my nature about the beauty of light inside people.

Quite possibly why I love chasing the sun and putting it to creative use.


There is a whole new experience that the sun brings to photography.  Stylistically, I’m a sunset shooter and love how light transforms photography into this beautiful storytelling medium when the sun reflects behind or on people.

I’m fortunate to have access to beautiful locations in and around Perth, from the coast to the bushland.

I create images that don’t just capture scenic beauty.

I remind people, particularly women, that their beauty was already there.

Can I have your raw Images?

No. It’s not a reflection of my work, and its’ an unfinished product.  All works are protected by copyright.

How do I dress myself and my family?

For my creative style, I recommend families choose neutrals, blues & earthy tones.  It’s best to leave boardshorts & the fave slogan or rock band shirt for the BBQ.

Check out my Instagram feed for inspiration.

Why choose to shoot at sunset?

This is known as “the golden hour”.  The light is beautiful and brings warmth and magic to the setting and people.

It’s my preferred styling to shoot, so be sure when booking that this is the feeling that you are looking for.
