As a person, I never take myself too seriously. I am compassionate and happy-go-lucky at heart although, my two young daughters have taught me the beauty of slowing down and being more intentional.

When booking with me and The Little Pop-Up Studio, you are not only guaranteed beautiful and wholesome gallery of images,  but also a fun experience for you and your family.

years of doing what I love


95% of the time, the secret to a great image is to capture people feeling comfortable. For most, this comfort starts at home, surrounded by the people we love.

Ironically though, when it comes to being in front of the camera, we can  feel everything but comfortable. So my solution and approach is simple:
I provide an In-home Studio and On Location Photography experience, where families can focus on just being themselves.

My In-Home 'Pop-Up' studio takes the pressure off busy and new families with me setting up my all white studio within your home. Not leaving the house during the early days of the newborn bubble or to avoid backward planning your day to the minute was always my intention as a fellow parent. And let's face it, B.C (before child), you do take for granted how uncomplicated it is to leave the house in general. Getting out the door without a hitch is a thing of the past and consequently, the idea of venturing to a studio can be overwhelming, impractical and sometimes, just not possible.

Alternatively, getting outdoors and exploring boundless open space with your family whilst being wild, silly and free could be just what you all need. A core memory that everyone will enjoy and one that completely deserves to be documented.

Whichever take you decide will align with your family more, my style always remains playful, heartfelt and natural - connecting with families, capturing their joy from the beginning and chapter by chapter of their beautiful and unique story. 

When it comes to working with the littler ones, my approach is completely baby/child-led. I work with their moods and wait for the perfect moments to reveal themselves. The results are a combination of gently posed and documentary style photos and a gallery filled with an array of emotions.

So to sum up: I'm all about capturing those little moments, special relationships and freezing time for just a second.
