Hi and welcome to my website :-), thanks for stopping by.

Well what can I say about me? I’m a mum of two beautiful girls, a wife, a business woman, a daughter, a horsewoman and slightly creative nut living in Drouin, Victoria. I could draw horses before I could write my name and I got my first pony at age 5 and I’ve had horses in my life ever since. I used to draw them in pastel. My mum bought my first SLR when I was in my early 20’s so I could take my own images to draw. I fell in LOVE with photography! Ive spent the last 23 years or so building my skills and perfecting my craft to become who I am today. It was because of this that I was able quit my regular job in hardware and I now get to do what I love every single day.

My favorite thing in the whole world is to capture the connection a woman has with her horse. It’s beautiful. It’s inspiring and I just LOVE it. I also love real photographs. Photos that will be around long after we are gone. Beautiful photographs that can be handed down as family heirlooms for generations. Thats what photography is all about.

I’m REALLY passionate about what I do and was pretty chuffed to become an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers in early 2015. It was a tough gig, but that made it even more worthwhile. And in 2018, I won the AIPP Victorian pet/Animal professional photographer of the year award. That is definitely one of my greatest photographic achievements to date.

My Other Passion

I also LOVE to teach photography, so i run photographic workshops and tutoring in and around West Gippsland and Victoria for enthusiast photographers. If you would like to learn more about my workshops, please visit my other website www.thefotocreative.com.au

You can give me a call on 0412 942897 anytime, and we can have a chat about your photography needs, whatever they may be. Thanks again for visiting 🙂
