About me - hmm, where to begin. After being in the workforce most of my life, doing things I enjoyed but didn't really LOVE, I took the plunge back in 2011 and decided to give my passion for photography a "go" - to try to make a living at it. Long story short, I've done enough weddings to know I don't like Bridezillas, life is too short for THAT amount of stress, so have let that side of things go, and of course, have to find work in the "real world" to bring in enough pingas that I can continue doing the things I love.

I'm thoroughly enjoying being a support worker, it is a satisfying thing to know that you are helping another human being get the best possible out of life. But . . . isn't there always a 'but' - photography is my first and only passion, so still doing that part time. Enjoying doing portraits, engagement/couples, and the freelance stuff that nurtures me, that speaks to my soul (and hopefully others too.) I intend in the near future to offer glamour/boudoir sessions also, but geared more towards the older ladies, 50+, those of us who have lived a life, raised a family, and who don't/can't see they are still beautiful, I plan on opening their eyes to the fact that they are still gloriously beautiful. Most of my work leans towards the informal "real" portraits, no stiff studio poses, they're unnatural. I am also offering Portrait Parties, the no fuss, fun, relaxed way to get new family portraits.

My latest photography interests involve IR photography, impressionism in photography and macro. I'm also hoping to try IR portraits, once I have a better IR dedicated camera, the one I have, while great for scenic, certainly could do with a few more MP before I feel I could do justice to portraits. Impressionst portraits, now THOSE I do now.

What spare time I have these days usually involves going on a mini photo safari with a friend, these usually morph into midi-safaris, or even maxi-safaris, it really does depend on how many photogenic scenes/artifacts/buildings/items we find along the way. I love having like-minded souls to share these expeditions with.
