I was born and raised in the US, primarily living in either Georgia or Tennessee until I was about 21. In the summer of my third year of college, I met (and 9 months later married) the love of my life who swept me off my feet and brought me to live in Australia where I've loved living ever since. Together we have had two young children who are my muses and the reason why I became passionate about documenting family life. During my sessions I draw on 18+ years of experience as a storyteller/musician to create a nostalgic experience for my clients in my work through the use of carefully hand selected music and thoughtful, intentional storytelling.
When my kids are cranky I love busting out the broadway vocals and making up songs to fit what I need them to do. Right now they think it's pretty hilarious, but I know those days are numbered.
In 2017 I was named one of Clickin Mom's Top 100 Photographers to Watch, was interviewed on the PhotobizXPosed Podcast, and presented at The Baby Summit - an international conference for photographers.
I am also passionate about teaching my approach to filmmaking for families to photographers around the world, so that more and more families can have this legacy to leave to their children and grandchildren. I do this over at Filming Life.
