I’m never entirely sure what people expect to find when they read photographers’ “About Me” pages. I don’t think anyone needs convincing that I love my job and that I put my heart, soul (and occasionally, my remaining sanity) into it. I also don’t think anyone cares what my qualifications are, because to be honest, the quality of an image speaks for itself! So I’d rather tell you a little about who I am – who the person is that will be joining you on some of the most precious and unique moments of your life!
I love gardening. Growing plants, failing at growing plants, and planting more in the hope that things will turn out differently. Not to brag, but my sister says that I have what they call “The Black Thumb”.
Jeans are great, but pajamas are better! One of the many perks of having a home office – bliss, bliss!
There is a right and a wrong way to make coffee. For more information on this, please make an appointment to see my dad who is the undisputed coffee champion of my lifetime. (If not, Vida E Cafe and The Seattle Coffee Company do a pretty good job of it too 😉
I’m a Cat Lady to my core. I can completely see myself being the old lady down the road who smells like mothballs and carries kitty treats in all my pockets. In fact? That’s pretty much my plan for retirement.
My world begins and ends with family and friends. My loved ones mean everything to me and I’m blessed by every moment they are in my life.
I hate snakes. If we’re doing your shoot in a field and I see one, I will absolutely run, save myself, and leave you for dead. On the flip side, I’m perfectly happy to hang upside down in a tree or wade into the ocean with my camera if it means I will get the perfect shot for you!
The most amazing taste I’ve ever experienced was a peach and avocado smoothie I had while on holiday in Abu Dhabi.
I’ve photographed weddings in The United States of America, Angola, Botswana and Germany. My dream is that this list will grow to include many other beautiful countries! Despite not being a huge fan of flying, I love to travel.
I don’t like fuss … simple is always better. Friday nights in with take-aways and a movie, rock my world! (Or better yet? Cleaning the house – OCD and straight lines for the win!)
I once lost my job, and without the prospect of any new employment, decided to take on a mountain of debt in order to buy an artwork on credit. That painting is now fully paid off, hanging in my lounge and has doubled in value … I never regretted that decision for a second.
I don’t trust people who don’t get at least a little toe-tappy when a Taylor Swift song comes on. Come on … let’s not fool ourselves here!
