Welcome to my journal.

As a documentary family photographer and filmmaker, I specialise in capturing candid and real moments of life. My aim is to show you the beauty in the ordinary through unscripted, emotive photography.

As a brand photographer and filmmaker, I create outstanding visuals for your small business so you can show off your products and services and connect with your audience.

On this page, you can read about anything I find of value for you as well as my projects, plans and whatever I find worthy of documenting. Follow me into clients homes, behind the scenes of businesses and to exciting places far away.  And in between I’ll talk about the importance of documenting life, creating keepsakes for your family and telling your own story authentically.
