This is my happy place ... my light!
I draw my inspiration from life's everyday moments and treasured milestones to create your personal story.
Holding a camera, taking photos, looking for the light, it felt natural ... like I was coming home.
When I’m not in mum mode or looking through the viewfinder, you’ll find me enjoying a coffee (or wine, or chocolate ... I'm really not fussy), catching up on a good TV series and being the voice of logic, a sounding board and a cheerleader to my mum squad.
Photography has followed me throughout my life, during my travels and adventures I always had a camera in my hand.
But it wasn’t until I became a mother that my passion for capturing the everyday really started to have meaning. I wasn’t just taking a record of where I had been, I was documenting life. Capturing their story and my images had impact, not just for me but for my boys as well. It gave them a sense of belonging and brought their childhood to life.
If you'd like to know more about me, here are a few random facts:
· Before the boys came along, I was/am (when time allows) a gamer. Yep, I am a nerd! I love getting absorbed in a good RPG just as much as I love getting into a good book or TV show.
· I am more than happy with my own company, the biggest challenge I faced when I became a mum was my lack of alone time. I was not prepared for having my personal space completely and utterly obliterated.
· I am a hopeless romantic! I love rom-coms, period films and musicals. A love I get to share with my youngest, we will often have off pitch and out of key sing offs to our favourite Disney movies (him playing the lead of course).
· I had never broken a bone in my body until my 30th Birthday, when my Dad thought it would be a good idea to go sand boarding. Safe to say ... it was NOT a good idea!
My Still-life Collection
Capturing nature has a profound grounding effect, it brings me peace and calm from the craziness of everyday life.
Looking for details and seeing things from a new perspective pushes my boundaries to search for new light and increases my creativity for all aspects of my art.
