Tell us a bit about your approach to the work you do, your time in the business and a few personal facts about you.
I work to create images that evoke a feeling in my clients when they look at them. I want them to remember how they felt when they were being photographed; to remember the feeling of excitement and anticipation of the arrival of their baby when they spent our session imagining her in their arms or snuggling each other for one of the last times as just a couple before becoming a family. I want them to look back and see their own look of absolute amazement as they stare into their new baby’s eyes, or play with their tiny toes or soak in the beautiful chaos that is new parenthood, and feel nostalgic and grateful for their beautiful lives. I have been photographing professionally since 2010, but have recently focused more intimately on my family work. Since becoming a Mum I have a new appreciation for photographing families, and have enjoyed every moment of meeting and documenting families as they grow! I have 2 amazing boys who inspire me daily, and keep me busy!
What about this session was most memorable?
I love when I am able to document families as they grow and change and this session was one of them! I photographed their engagement and wedding, and was honoured to capture this exciting time in their lives too.
Were there any hurdles?
They absolutely rocked their session! It was incredibly windy and I actually almost got blown off the rocks, but it was worth it since I love wind blown images.
Your best photographer/session advice?
Work with the elements not against them. Nature gives us some pretty good curve balls sometimes but the results can be better than you hoped!
What gear was used to achieve these?
Canon 6D, Sigma 35mm Art series, Canon 85mm L series
“Work with the elements not against them.”
