What kind of photographer are you?

I’m a family and wedding lifestyle photographer living on the Gold Coast Queensland. Although based on the beautiful Gold Coast, I am often found working in one of the many amazing locations around Queensland! I'm extremely grateful that you are interested in my photography.

I believe that my work is interesting and current, yet still timeless and natural, think - enduring lifestyle. My focus is to capture real emotion, connection, and love. Photographs with value. Created with passion. I aim to provide you with a personal, creative, and fun photography experience, along with a genuine final product that you and your families will cherish. Forever!

Where will my session be held?

I have many locations that I love to shoot at regularly but I am always open to new locations as well. You should choose a location that fits your style and personality. I can help you along with this decision.

How long will my session be?

The good news is, I am super fast! My family portrait sessions rarely last more than an hour. Don't worry, I can easily get a diverse and adequate gallery in that time. My wedding packages range from 6 to 10 hours. 

What will my session be like?

My sessions are fun and relaxed, I’m a lifestyle photographer so I more prompts than posing capturing those beautiful moments in between. I like to say I capture the true essence of your family.

Where will my newborn session be held?

In the comfort of your own home. Newborn sessions feature the newborn and his or her immediate family and usually last around two hours. Includes all high-resolution digital images that I edit from your session,  delivered via direct download. Images will be displayed in a private online gallery. 

What should I wear?

Your clothing enhances the story of your photos but we need to think about the location and the weather. Your wardrobe should be comfortable and reflect who you are. I do not recommend matching but rather coordinating. Light and airy photo sessions look best with a soft and neutral color palette. But that doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be boring or lacking in color. Soft pinks and pastels always look amazing or try white on white for that extra crisp look to your photos. Adding the right colors in the right amounts along with texture, small prints, and fun details are sure to help make your portraits look anything but boring. Adding a jacket, a statement piece, some jewellery, and/or a hat will really polish a look.

How far out are you booked?

For weddings, I am booked out a year in advance. Family, newborn, and maternity 1 to 3 months in advance.
