wedding & fine art photography

Kia ora, ko Parehuia toku ingoa



I reside in the sunny Hawkes Bay where I plan to build my forever home. I began my photography journey after finishing my third book in the Where Creatures Hide Series, my idea was that I could create movie looking portraits inspired by my fourth book to promote its release. It's been a few years and I haven't finished that book but I have started a successful photography business so you win some-you lose some. I never imagined myself as a photographer but it was a yummy surprise none the less.
