I have been a photographer for over 25 years and love that my job is my passion. Going to work is not a chore.

When viewing my images, it's like "opening presents". It is so exciting and rewarding.

I studied a BA Communications at Newcastle University. Where I majored in photography. I have also updated my skills as I partake in workshops, online classes and tutorials.

I have four children so know the patience you have to have when working with babies and children.


I have been working in the Maternity ward photographing Newborns at North Shore Private Hospital for over 20 years and at Westmead Private Hospital for over 16 years.

I am therefore very experienced in settling and safely handling newborns.

My clients journey often begins with me at the hospital and as I am reasonably priced a lot of my clients seek updated photos each year. The children become comfortable and familiar with me, and it is really sentimental for me watching their families grow over the years.

Health and safety is our priority, not just during the pandemic but at ALL times. We implement hygiene measures such as washing hands regularly, using hand sanitiser, cleaning props and wearing gloves and masks when needed.
