Photography is about capturing memories of people's lives in a way that words can never express.  My speciality is newborn, maternity and baby portraits.  I love sharing in the special days before and immediately after the birth of a new family member and capturing the bonds of love between people. Those days are so special because babies grow so quickly and it is important they are captured and preserved forever.

I have loved photography all my life and shoot with a Nikon camera and a variety of professional lenses.  I have qualifications from a range of establishments including The University of Lancaster (UK),  The Australian Centre for Photography and Sydney Tafe Institute.   I have also a volunteered as a photographer for Guide Dogs NSW Children's Cancer Institute AustraliaThe Australian Diabetes Council and Heartfelt.  I adhere to strict safety procedures in the art of newborn posing.  I am a proud Member of NewbornPhotography.com the #1 Community for Professional Newborn Photographers

I live in Waverton (North Sydney) on Sydney's North Shore.  I drink endless tea, have a sweet tooth, love Indian food, travel, waterfalls, children and animals.  My favourite sayings are "Live Simply, Laugh Often, Love Deeply" and "Don't be Afraid to Dream".  I have two beautiful young adult children of my own and can't believe both how quickly the years have flown and how much I have forgotten about the early days.

I cherish photos as reminders of days lived and people loved.  My own family photos, particularly of my children, are my most prized possessions - let me make them yours too. 


If you live in Waverton, North Sydney, Crows Nest, Lane Cove, Milsons Point, Neutral Bay, Mosman, Chatswood, Wollstonecraft, Greenwich, Cammeray, Northbridge or anywhere on the Sydney North Shore then Chapter One Newborn Photography is your most local professional Sydney newborn photographer, maternity photographer, baby photographer and cake smash photographer.  I would love to meet you.
