This photo captures one of my proudest moments - receiving two Gold Awards from Master Photographer, James Heremia. Winning these awards was a huge step in my decision to take my photography to the next level and start my business.  Since then I have won a few more awards and recognitions for my work including the Taranaki Weddings Highly Recommended Wedding Photographer for 2020.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved the art of photography – the ability to seize a moment in time, forever.

The talent, creativity and raw passion in the work of a great photographer inspires me. I am drawn to capturing the power of human emotions - from falling in love, to getting engaged and married, to the blessing of pregnancy and the celebration of a precious new being, to watching a family grow up – I love it all!


With a passion for creating the best of the best, your photoshoot will be relaxed and fun… I promise. You will be smiling without me even having to ask!


Based in New Plymouth in New Zealand, my goal has been to constantly learn and evolve my photography skills so that I can confidently deliver everything you wished for and more.


You will love the beautiful shots in my photography gallery.

Come on in and take a look through.


I hope to see you through my lens soon.

I love being able to use my skills to give something back to my community.

I am very blessed and honoured to be able to use my photography skills to support two causes that are very close to my heart.

SANDS Taranaki


SANDS is a voluntary, parent-run, non-profit organisation set up to support parents and families who have experienced the death of a baby at any stage during pregnancy, as a baby or infant.












The Neonatal Trust Taranaki












I offer a complimentary photoshoot to families with babies in the Neonatal Unit to document that special chapter in their family's story.


It's an honour and a privilege to offer my services to these organisations and to those who need me to capture some precious memories for them.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are someone, or know someone who would benefit from this complimentary service.
