From a very young age I had a fascination with cameras but it never dawned on me that one day I would become a photographer!

As I got older, I would hire cameras and photograph special occasions for friends and family. Portraits were my passion and bringing out the personality of the person I was photographing was what I loved.

Wedding photography was never something I thought I would do professionally until I captured my sister & brother in laws wedding in 2003. I will never forget the feeling I was left with after showing them their wedding photographs for the first time and since then, I haven’t looked back. No two weddings are ever the same for me. I am always mindful that this is one of the most special days in someone’s life and I have the privilege of giving them photographic memories that will last forever.

I just love to zoom in to stories that are naturally unfolding in front of me without having to pose them. Whether it’s a couple on their wedding day or capturing newborns and children in my studio. To bring someone back to that emotion or feeling they had when I pressed the shutter button and captured the image.

I am a real people person and I photograph with my heart. I adore documenting moments and memories that will last a lifetime.
