I'm a multi hat wearing (I kid. I don't do hats), Photographer / Stylist + Colour Brand Creative. My days are spent as a Curious creator, Digital dreamer and Instagram Strategist working with ARTISTS, BRANDS + the PEOPLE behind them. If you need to make your products or services look as brilliant as they really, truly are - send everything to me!

My favourite and busiest role in life is being wife to Ben + mum to our two very spirited little people. Photography's definitely a close second though and has always been a passion. 

My Nana I think, was the one who gave me my first camera when I was about 6 years old but noone wanted me to be a photographer / the poor artist. 

So my corporate career began with me getting a job in Wellington at a bank as a teen. They didn't check how old I was until I had been there so long it didn't matter anymore! And other than when I started out working, I've never had a job where connecting with people and story telling wasn't key so I knew I needed to find a blend of all three. 

I've also worked with kids + trained as a nail tech which became my first business. Then I fell into Recruitment where I was lucky enough to work with many kiwi and international brands, win awards for acing sales and marketing targets, and essentially learn how to run a business.

When I came back to photography, I found myself working as a lifestyle and wedding photographer, and decided to complete my diploma in Photography + an Interior Design course.

I've owned an online store too so really understand, some of the challenges businesses can face with their branding and online presence. This, my recruitment background and a couple of key advertising photographer friends, is how I landed enough commercial work to freelance full time.

A picture tells a thousand words and I use a strategic visual marketing plan to tell your business story in the right way but having my experience meant I could be more hands on.

So you'll always find me experimenting with interiors, props and DIY. I'm super handy at building sets, although hammering a nail straight's a bit hit and miss some days! I love a touch of whimsy. Moody lighting, neutrals and big open spaces. I mix the old with the new and there's always music playing somewhere.

Colour pops and instagram are my jam. I'm a bit of a foodie too but actually not the worlds best baker *sad face* - give me a few minutes and a camera and I can make my creations look amazing though!

If you made it this far - hey, thanks for reading, coming up with these bio's is pants (and for copywriters) - but I'd love for you to follow along or get in touch to work with me.

If you're ready to chat more, get in touch.

FLORA 155 - Teaching my kids to see colour + appreciate the smaller things, got us through a time with a very persistent belly ache. We always had a bunch of flowers + house plant babies that I was sure wouldn’t make the end of the month in our star white, painted box, absent of colour - but here we are. Flora 155 is a floral + jungalow series, inspired by my family - especially my children, a journey to good health + pretty much, just life.
