About the Artist

My vision is to transform your precious memories into beautiful, expressive art you will treasure forever.

I am an AIPP accredited professional photographer and have been a professional artist & photographer since 2004.  I create beautiful artwork that tells a story, reveals emotional connections and has value that defies time.  In my world, there is nothing more important than two and four legged family.

The most valuable thing we have is time and nothing marks its passing quite like having pets and being a parent.

I have decades of experience with kids with ASD/ADHD, horses of different breeds and high energy dogs so I understand the concerns you have about a photography session and assure you that no matter how sensitive, energetic or crazy active yours are, I will create beautiful photographs that you will love!

I learned photography in the days of film and believe photographs don't truly exist until they are printed.

I created my first horse and dog photographs in 1985 (yep, last century and they wern't very good!).  My camera is like a paint brush; my photographs are paintings made with light that portrays pets and their people in a way that shows not just what they look like, but who they really are.

On a personal level, I'm a coffee loving, down to earth old country girl with wild curly hair and a sense of humour.  Happily married, mum of 3 amazing young adults, 5 border collies and 6 horses who all live on our small farm in the beautiful south west of WA.

A fourth generation horsewoman (as a baby I was bottle fed alongside an orphan foal and a GSD puppy) with cavalry ancestors on the other side of my family, my lifelong love of horses, dogs and the country is literally in my blood.

I love creating customized, meaningful art for down to earth people who love the land and their two & four-legged family as much as I love mine.

If you would love natural, expressive, personality filled photographs of the loves of your life, I'd love to tell your unique story with beautiful photographs that will become your most treasured family heirlooms.


PS: That's me as a baby - on a horse before I could walk and probably when I fell in love with these beautiful animals.  The chestnut arab is my princess pony Tessa, the first horse I started under saddle and my 'once in a lifetime' horse.
