People often ask me what makes a good photo? It's more than just capturing the moment. Composition, lighting, a good camera, a keen eye, and a comfort between the photographer and the client all play a role. Also involved is the creative art used capturing that kiss, that ray of sunshine, that rainbow. It's knowing when to have fun, follow the rules, and also knowing when to break them. Perhaps it's also a mutual moment shared between two people: the photographer and the subject, in a candid, natural way; an artist making art.

It's been my life's work to follow my passion and over the years I have worked with hundreds of clients to capture their memories. 

To me it's important that we get to know each other, feel comfortable with each other and build a relationship of trust. Because of this, I offer free consultations to discuss your photoshoots.

Whether it's brainstorming where, when and how to take that special family portrait, or helping you plan your wedding day and the many intricate and important moments to cover in photography, I'm honoured to be a part of it.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you! Please email or text me to set up a free consultation.
