Nostalgia: a sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past. One of the many wonderful things about photography is that it captures a fleeting moment in time. This is one of the main motivators that drive me to be a photographer, that and also my fascination with people. I’m a documentary junkie! […]

There is something special about looking back on old photos; family history. I love the feeling of nostalgia, the whimsy warmth of recalling the moments… The photos that I have of the first few weeks of my son’s life bring back a WOOSH of emotions. There weren’t digital cameras within my budget 19 years ago […]
I was at a session this week and it ALL came back to me. There are things NO ONE tells you about having a new born baby. As soon as I walked in the door to my new ‘client’ (sounds SO clinical) she apologised for the smell. Little bub was just 5 days old […]
My new favourite location is at the beach. I love it as it creates a stunning blank canvas for me to capture families interacting. The wind was a bit chilly when we arrived at 0800 so it was a good opportunity for a family game of soccer to warm up. Kawariki and Tehare took straight […]

A huge thank you to all the amazing families and friends I’ve met along the way in 2014!
Heartfelt is an incredible organisation lead by an amazing man who turned his grief into something positive. I have been fortunate enough to be appointed as the South Island Representative and have been for the last six months. On September 11 we had our AGM along with workshops and team catch ups. I was […]
I have been working with Canterbury District Health Board for the past four years in my role with Now I lay Me Down to Sleep and more recently as the South Island Representative for Heartfelt NZ. The intensive experience within the hospital has allowed me to become an Approved Visiting Professional within the CDHB primary […]
SWOON! The glow of a woman who has just given birth gets me every time! I love that the first thing babies see is LOVE. They have heard mum and dad from within the womb and then when they are born they witness affection and warmth… what a beautiful and tender first lesson about life […]
