After working as a designer in Australia, I spent several years living, working and experiencing life on the other side of the world. My work in freelance design, ventured into photography which has become my greatest passion.

Melbourne is now home, however the influences of my travels are heavily ingrained, adding a new dimension to my work. I love to find aspects of the world around us, which can be easily overlooked, then capturing images to reveal these hidden gems. Exploring new places, with my husband and our loyal dog, Scout, my adventures are varied and provide endless opportunities for photography. When I am not taking pictures, I am usually out and about walking with Scout or cooking dinner for friends. I love to turn my photos into bespoke greeting cards which can be find on my Etsy shop.

Working as a photographer allows me to meet wonderful people and capture their businesses, artwork, culinary creations, lifestyles and personalities. It is fantastic privilege to create images that reflect my clients and reveal the beauty that exists all around us!

My design background enables me to not only capture the images, but also set up and style the shoot, giving me creative freedom, versatility and flexibility.

I am available for freelance photography projects, both large and small, specialising in food and lifestyle images. If you would like to get in touch and discuss working together, please contact me. I would love to meet you.
