I'm a mama of 4 and a registered early childhood teacher; you can rest assured your babies are safe in my hands.

My photographic vibe is creating gorgeous images documenting your pregnancy and little ones - and making sure these are printed and hanging on your wall, not hanging out in a drawer.

I have a gorgeous cosy little photo studio, right in the middle of Motueka on High Street.

Let's chat about how I can help you bring your vision to life.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO

I am a fully trained and registered (former) early childhood teacher with 15 years experience and yes - I totally love kidlets and their exuberance!  I have bonus experience working with families and children with special needs also.  I really enjoy catching children being just who you know them as.  I am comfortable with location shoots, home based journalistic lifestyle, and studio photography.

I have a NZ Diploma in Photography, a Certificate in Art and Creativity, a Diploma in Art and Creativity and a NZ Diploma in Creativity (Level 6), as well as a Bachelor of Education (Birth-8) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education.  And exactly 50% of an applied science and sustainability degree.  I'm studying again, doing the Level 7 Diploma in Art and Creativity (Advanced).

I have completed newborn safety courses and am currently mentoring with two phenomenal international newborn photographers.
