MY INSPIRATION

66

I am inspired by simple moments and the people who make life worthwhile every day.  It is such a joy to be able to make my clients comfortable when posing for a shoot.  When all of the little details are taken care of, they can really just relax and have fun with it – and the results are amazing!  Its only when we work together that we can capture and present the mood, feelings and emotion in a shoot. Your true self.

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old

Franz Kafka

I am a “Modern Woman”

We live in an amazing time in human history, of unprecedented wealth, liberation, freedom and personal power. It is an especially important time for women as we are able to finally, truly, seek our own destinies.

We choose our partners
We choose our careers
We choose Motherhood
We choose to be strong, outspoken and individual

There is such beauty in choice and so many places we can go.  On my own journey as a modern woman I am inspired by the powerful women I meet and compelled to document their stories.

I am a Dreamer

There is beauty in a sunset.  An endless desert or limitless ocean.  A single leaf on the top of a pile. Beauty is all around us if we open ourselves to see it – and we all have beauty in our own uniqueness.  In our own personal story. I want to tell your story and expose your own unique beauty.  I want to show you an image of yourself from a new perspective. I think that photographs are a really powerful way to portray and to capture who you are, and where you are, in this stage of your journey [as a woman].

I am a Wanderer

I love to travel.  Every new place brings new experiences, new ways to see and think about this precious world we live in.  Every new experience brings growth both as a person, and as a photographer.  Each place I have visited – Africa, Outback Australia, Indonesia and Polynesia – have all given me something that I bring to my own life and photography.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am an Artist

I believe that photography is an art and it speaks to everyone differently. It can change how you feel about yourself, even if just for a moment.  Subtle variations in colour, focus and placement create profound images that capture your imagination or give life to memories and emotions.  It is a wonderful experience to capture and highlight the subtle, magical, details that are the essence of every woman – The intimacy of bearing a child, the tenderness of being a new mother, the strength and power of the professional woman and the quiet confidence of experience.

I am a Photographer

These are the things that drive my craft. I have had the immense pleasure of working with (and learning from) so many talented people who have all contributed to my growth as a photographer, but the essence of being a photographer for me is not the person behind the camera, but the story in front of it…

…and that’s You!
