BEFORE CHOOSING TO WORK WITH ME I WANT YOU TO KNOW....


I BELIEVE DIVERSITY IS AN ASSET.


I BELIEVE YOU CAN LOVE WHOEVER YOU WANT.


I BELIEVE IN A BABY AND CHILD LED APPROACH.


I BELIEVE FAMILIES COME IN ALL SHAPES, SIZES AND CONFIGURATIONS.


I BELIEVE THAT WE SHOUD RESPECT AND PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT.


I BELIEVE WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO THOSE LESS FORTUNATE THAN OURSELVES.


I BELIEVE THE ELDERLY IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND FAMILIES SHOULD BE CELEBRATED.


I BELIEVE THAT THE ONUS IS ON BUSINESS OWNERS TO ACCOMMODATE THOSE WITH SPECIAL OR ADDITIONAL NEEDS.


I BELIEVE ALL PARENTING JOURNEYS SHOULD BE HONOURED, NO MATTER WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE OR HOW THEY CAME ABOUT.



I am proud to be an inclusive business and work hard to ensure I can be accessible to anyone who wishes to work with me. I don't care what your race, gender identification, age, religion, sexual orientation, family makeup, education level or political beliefs are so long as you are a good, kind and compassionate person. Being photographed can be an incredibly vulnerable experience and I am always honoured when clients place their trust in me. It is an enormous privilege and a huge responsibility and one I take very seriously. I encourage my clients to be open and honest with me about any hurdles or obstacles that may be present for them so that I can find ways to address them. Clients often share incredibly personal and intimate details about themselves and their lives and I hold the space for them to do this and will always respect and protect their privacy. I will not tolerate hate, prejudice, sexism, discrimination or disrespect during sessions and if I witness it I will call people out as to be silent is to condone and perpetuate that which is unacceptable. I am excited to work with you and to embrace the traditional and nontraditional, orthodox and unorthdox, mainstream and non-mainstream, quirks, traits, baggage and dynamics that make us and our families precisely what we are in the very here and now.


BOOK YOUR SESSION


I acknowledge the Bunurong and Wurundjerdi People who are the traditional owners of the land on which I photograph.

I pay my respects to their Elders; past, present and emerging.
