I am a mum of three boys, two of whom are twins. I am an artist, I am a musician, I am an easy going country chick who grew up out west, but most of all I am your photographer. When I was a child I loved anything and everything in the animal kingdom. I owned goodness knows how many parrots and took in as many injured ones to rehabilitate. From having this love of all things fur and feathers grew my second passion, art!. My father was the artistic one in the family spending many hours perfecting his skills of sketching our feathered friends while I watched on. To say my attempts at the start to follow in my father's footsteps were a masterpiece would be way over exaggerating it lol, but there was potential there. Fast forward a few years and I soon caught up which resulted in myself selling many artworks at local markets and festivals. ( musn't have been too bad hey ). But you know what? This love of art and the finer eye for details has helped in my now passion and business venture of a photographer. Art in the way I shoot to capture who you truly are. Art also in another form in the way I edit with the eye for the finest of details.
What about my other passion, musician and performer?. I was a musician for many years, entertaining, placing in competitions, even winning a scholarship to attend the Tamworth College of Country Music. This career choice may be one I never pursued to the ends of the earth, but it too gave me some valuable life lessons. As a performer, you're taught how to talk to and include your audience in your performance, same goes for photography. It's those same techniques that allow me as a photographer to communicate with my clients and portray exactly what they have in mind for their own family walls to be able to create heirlooms for generations to come by speaking your language.
I am a country photographer, I LOVE the country. The more rustic with barbed wire fences, cattle yards, open fields and sunsets the better. I LOVE forests also, green grassy fields, flowing streams, wildflowers and the sound of bellbirds in the distance is my heaven. I grew up on the country, on a five-acre piece of land surrounded by farmland. The nearest neighbour was at least 1-2kms away, peace and quiet to the max. My family was the type of wave if you passed by on the highway, pull up on the side of the road for a chat, put your feet up and relax at the end of a hard weeks work with a cool drink enjoying life.
