About the Portraitist

NICE TO MEET YOU!

I understand in a very personal way, the importance of portraits. The impact they will have on your family for years to come is always at the forefront of my creativity. At a very tender age my mother passed away leaving behind only a few small photographs of the two of us together. I cherish those portraits and realize that because of them I have a greater connection to my mother.
I have been a portrait photographer since 2005 and have been blessed to work with countless families around the world. I am adding to my journey with you a degree in transpersonal counselling.
Relationships are important to me and if I can help bring your family closer in our time together, then that is even sweeter still.
My promise to my clients is that I will ensure that the portraits we create together will be significant in the moment and all the more meaningful for years to come.
