Maternity, Newborn, Family, Mummy and Me, Goddess, Dress Burning, Conceptual... If you can dream it up, I can help you capture it in the physical world! My portrait sessions are designed to suit anyone who is looking for a fun relaxed style that captures the essence of you, your family or even your business. Don't wait to capture moments and memories. When the future you looks back, what you'll want are things that make you say, "those were the days".
I often hold polymer clay workshops and kids art workshops! I often host these alongside the Nambucca Valley Phoenix. I also work with Paint Your Town and host Paint and Sip parties in the Nambucca Valley and Coffs Coast. Check for upcoming events here and on social media and chat to me about your art projects and workshop ideas and I'll be happy to be involved!
Birth is the most life changing experience anyone can go through. It's sacred and deserves to be remembered in all it's emotion and power. I photograph births so families can relive the elation of meeting their babies for the first time, over and over, bringing on that oxytocin high, that love at first sight, whenever they want it. I offer birth photography and doula services in the Nambucca Valley, Coffs Harbour, Kempsey, Port Macquarie and Grafton.
I am a Biripi woman living on beautiful Gumbayngirr country. Pictured here with me is my ever supportive and ridiculous dad joke telling husband Gaz. We have a beautiful family of five kids, two dogs, two cats, three rabbits and one pigeon (the rabbits and the pigeon live together and love each other dearly! haha) and live in the beautiful town of Bowraville. I love painting, drawing, the creek, humpback whales, diving, herbs, yoga, books, walks, the beach, animals and of course spending time with loved ones. I'm a Pisces and spend a lot of time in my own little world, dreaming up all sorts of things! I love supporting others to be creative and push their own boundaries, which is what I enjoy most about the work I do.
I am an artist that captures the essence of the natural world, birth and our connection to the earth through emotive photography, graphic acrylic paintings, drawings and polymer clay sculptures. I draw my inspiration from my love of freediving and wildlife and my work as a doula and birth photographer. I am mostly self-taught and began drawing and painting as a teenager then started photographing images of the landscape in outback Australia. My images have been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, on ABC news and in various outback and aviation magazines. For birth work I have studied through and am certified with Lacey Barrett in Exposing Birth, plus Newborn Mothers with Julia Jones. I am currently undertaking full spectrum doula and mentor training through Birthing From Within and Evidence Based Birth plus Breastfeeding training with Newborn Mothers. I am also a member of the Australian Doula Network and Heartfelt. Heartfelt is a volunteer organization of professional photographers dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families who have experienced stillbirth or have children with serious or life threatening illness. I love to help and empower families through their births, and beyond.
**I would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of our country and pay my respects to the Gumbaynggirr people who are the custodians of the land in which I live, here in the beautiful Nambucca Valley. I would also like to thank the Elders, both past, present and emerging for the knowledge and wisdom they share and the strength and determination they have shown. Because of their courage, wisdom and resilience, we are able to celebrate a continuous living culture that spans over 60,000 years**
