Pregnancy is a truly incredible time, and what your body goes through is kind of mind blowing. I love working with people who are experiencing the power and strength of what their bodies go through during pregnancy. And helping them to capture that feeling in photos, for generations to come with a maternity photoshooot. There's not many things worth celebrating more than the miracle of life! x
While in Cuba for a work trip I organised a photo shoot with local guide and model Swany. Just after sunrise we roamed the streets of old town Havana, finding all the most photogenic corners of the city as a stunning back drop for this portrait shoot.

Rosie & Niels
On my last trip to Paris I met up with the incredibly talented career coach Rosie from Badass Careers. This bright kiwi and her French partner were living in Paris at the same time as me before moving back to New Zealand to focus on their careers and explore the majestic landscapes of Aotearoa.
Rosie and I worked together to create some fun and dynamic branding photos to launch her new careers website. For this shoot, we aimed to incorporate Rosie's brand colours in her images and specifically chose locations to suit. I love the result of this personal branding shoot, and that her partner was able to jump in a few of the photos. Making the most of such a romantic backdrop!

Clayton & Angie
Clayton and Angie joined me for a special shoot in front of the Eiffel tower to celebrate their five year anniversary. It was wonderful to spend a sunny morning in Paris with the American couple who had come over for a vacation. I am greatly looking forward to getting back to shooting sunrise shoots in Paris again in 2022.
My first Auckland empowerment shoot for 2021 was with beautiful model Comfort. Having to drastically rearrange life in 2020 pushed me in a new direction as a photographer, and by the end of it I was suddenly sure of what I was meant to be doing. So it was an honor to shoot my first focused empowerment photo shoot with Comfort in New Zealand. I really felt like I had found my calling, and this was the first of many shoots I would be doing in 2021. These empowerment shoots not only empower the model, but leave me feeling empowered as a photographer too. I love to see the power of diversity shine through my lens. x
Paris Vow Renewal
There is no more romantic place in the world to renew your love for one another than Paris. I teamed up with local celebrant Michelle Wahila from Ruffled by Grace to help this gorgeous American couple celebrate their many years together. I am hoping to be back in Paris for summer 2022 and will be taking bookings for all the special occasions worth documenting. I'm looking forward to capturing your vow renewal or engagement in front of the Eiffel Tower!
It was such a pleasure to work with the beautiful pin up queen Andrea for this boudoir shoot. The Olivia Coleman lookalike made such a fabulous model for our empowerment shoot it was hard to pick my favourite shots. This fierce example of body love and positivity rocked all her most stunning lingerie and vintage wares for our special photoshoot. Want to make some photography magic with me in New Zealand? DM me for more information! x

A little throwback to this uber romantic Parisian couples photo shoot while the world was still open for exploring. I do miss these sunrise shoots at Trocadero platform and meeting glamorous couples from all over the world. If you're looking for an engagement or couples shoot in Paris in the future or in New Zealand during 2021 please do get in touch .x
Dayna braved the chill of late winter for this stunning swimwear photo shoot on Bethells Beach last year. The gorgeous model booked in a test shoot to celebrate her body and journey into fitness modeling and she absolutely nailed it. I love the colours of this golden hour sunset on the west coast of New Zealand. To book your own lingerie, boudoir or empowerment portrait in a special Auckland location get in touch now.
Helen & Rob Wedding
While on a trip back to New Zealand I was booked in to shoot this beautiful wedding on stunning farm south of Auckland. Though I don't traditionally shoot weddings, it was an honour to shoot this gorgeous ceremony between Helen and Rob and celebrate their special day with all of their friends. The rustic environment and dreamy scenery made the perfect back drop for some intimate couple shoots as well as some fun with the bridal party.
