I have had the privilege of some of the most amazing people who I got the chance to photograph. I am thankful that I got to be a part of their story.
Couples, Families or Glamour Portraits are available in-studio or on location. Photoshoots are between 30 mins to 2 hours. A session with a make-up artist is optional. Unlimited wardrobe changes.

Fresh 48 Photography
This session takes place in the hospital within the first 48 hours of the birth and aims to capture the raw, authentic early moments of your newborn’s life.
The birth story is captured starting from active labour to the first few hours after the baby is born. These raw, authentic images document a life-changing event for parents. Maternity and Fresh 48 shoots can be added to your birth package.
Photography workshops and seminars will be advertised on this website as well as on social media. Please follow us on Facebook for the latest updates. One-to-one lessons are available for those who would prefer personal tuition.
Labour of Love Portraits are free photoshoots. This initiative was started as a way to give back to the community. For people that are going through a challenging time in life and would benefit from having beautiful photos, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Labour of Love” in the subject line.
