Creator of films and photos for families.


Visual storytelling at its finest.

There's a story inside of you that's yearning to be told.

Let's go ahead and tell it.

Films

Imagine being able to go back and re-live a day in your childhood with your mum or dad. To see the house you lived in, hear the laughter, and feel that love again. Let's create that for your children, and your children's children.

You want authentic, meaningful, real life images to hang on your wall? You've come to the right place. Your children will walk past that photo of them snuggled up with you in your favorite spot and that love will wash over them again every single time they see it.

Who am I?


Here's my story.

Who am I?


Here's my story.

A storyteller. A moment seeker. A lover of all things ordinary.

 

My favourite images are the kind that tell a story about the people in them. The kind of images that aren't just pretty and technically perfect, but the kind that make the person looking at them FEEL something. 

I create soulful images and films full of emotion, love, and real moments that are so timeless and classic that looking back at them transports people right back to that moment in time and brings on a wave of nostalgia so real that they feel it in their bones.

The clients I work with seek me out for my approach to documenting everyday life and ability to create beautiful images for them without any pressure to perform or be anything but themselves. They tend to feel a strong connection to their home, to their family, and to the idea of preserving memories and stories that can be handed down to their children and their children's children. 

I'm one of those overly interested people, always asking questions and always fascinated by other people's lives. 

I'm an American born, internationally published, Sydney based family photographer and filmmaker, available for domestic or international travel. I moved to Australia in 2006, and live here in this beautiful country with my husband and two young children.

I'm an educator and mentor to photographers who want to learn the art of creating films for their own personal work or clients over at Filming Life.

If you're looking for a traditional, everyone smile at the camera kind of session you've come to the wrong place. 

 

I want real moments. I want to see your life the way it truly is. Forget the awkward poses, and forced smiles. Let's let the kids roll around in the mud and take pictures of that! Ok maybe not that, but let's not be afraid to show your real selves doing the things that you really do together as a family. Let's capture all the inbetween moments, the life you're living today, right now, and create a beautiful, priceless work of art out of it (you can leave that last part to me).

Imagine how much easier it will be to tell your partner that he/she won't actually have to do anything except be themselves during the session. Think about how stress free it will be to just do your normal thing and enjoy spending time with your kids.

Who doesn't love a good home movie?

 

When I was a little girl, we used to spend a week every summer at the beach in Destin, FL. My dad would sit in a beach chair with his video camera in hand (back in the VHS days!!), filming us chasing the waves and collecting seashells. I can remember how I felt watching those videos years later as a child, a teenager, and an adult. The way my heart filled with nostalgia, how my senses reacted so strongly to those clips to the point that I could almost feel the sun on my skin and taste the salt on my lips again. I'm overwhelmed with emotions every time I watch those videos, even today.

I first started filming with my camera in 2013. From the moment I created my first film of my daughter I knew that this was something other people NEED to have. It stirred so many more emotions within me than photos ever have, and I knew from that moment that this was a turning point for me. I made a promise to myself to work as hard as I possibly could to make this available for other families.
