I am originally from Perth, Western Australia. I currently live just outside of Washington D.C. with my husband and two children (and I miss living by the ocean). I have lived in many different places -- that's the short story. In 2015, when my children were finally out of diapers, I took a breath and picked up my husband's Nikon D90 and began, slowly, teaching myself manual photography. I fell in love and dived right in. For over 15 years my day job was development and grant-writing for non-profit organizations. I have married these two professions into Positive Light, a photography service for non-profits to help capture their clients with dignity, in a 'positive light'. I believe family lifestyle photography should be available to everyone, not just those who like to wear coordinated designer outfits and have a lot of wall space.
Prior to Coronavirus, I worked part-time with Bella Baby Photography at a regional hospital capturing the first hours of baby's life. I am an approved member of the Family Photojournalist Association and the Lifestyle Photographers Association; a member of This is Reportage - Family, and Documentary Family Photographers. I am always learning. In 2020 took part in Quietly Loud, lead by Felicia Chang and Kristine Nyborg. This year I am a student of "Creating Deeper Documentary Imagery".
I use a Nikon D810 and 35mm1.4, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8 and 105mm F2.
I am proud to have images published online and in print. Currently, selected images can be seen on the web-based, “The Kids Are Alright?" Photo Gallery exhibition, juried by Melanie Carvalho, featured online at Six Feet Photography, in The Editors Gallery for "Focus on The Story", in print of photo magazine "This Detailed Life" and the Family Photojournalists Association Family in the 2020 v04. Recently my image Family Vacation- Ski Trip was chosen to be featured in Documentary Family Photographers Worldwide inaugural exhibit 'Transforming Perspectives' https://www.dfp-gallery.com/photo-gallery. I have a profile online at Lensculture.
