I come from a land Downunder. Originally from Perth, Western Australia, I now live just outside of Washington D.C. with my husband and two children. Did I say 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.
I work part-time for Freed Photography Studio, I contract with company Shoott Photography and worked for Bella Baby Photography at Virginia Hospital Center, for two years capturing the first hours of a 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 use a Nikon Z6ii and a D810 alternating between a 35mm1.4, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8 and 70-200mm.
