THE INDEX

As a photographer and stylist, I help brands bring life to their offering through visual storytelling and creative direction. Having experienced working with major food, beverage and lifestyle brands, I bring a wealth of experience on how to elevate your brand using the power of beautiful imagery. 

If I’m not on a commercial shoot, working from my home studio creating recipes for clients, or writing resources for my tribe, I’m in my pjs wrangling my crazy cute kidlets, watching trashy TV or prepping for a dinner party. I can always be counted on to make you a solid drink, have your back and make you laugh.

MY STORY

photographer, stylist, educator

So you want to know more? I started my adult life as a crazy over-achiever which led me to study and work as a highly strung and over-worked building and construction manager. I loved what I did, I was very good at it, but I never felt fulfilled. Perfect timing, a supportive family and a bit of luck led me to to where I am today. I’d say it was the creativity, flexible hours and meeting beautiful souls that led me to this path, and I have never looked back.

I suppose you could say the journey started from a little alpine cottage nestled in my soul town, Chamonix, France. Having spent a year living and working there, I started a teeny blog to follow my travels, my adventures in cooking and capture the moments of my slow(er) paced and deliciously spent life. I fell in love with photography and using it to inspire myself and others.

These days I live a sublimely ordinary life, married to a lovely man who is my biggest fan, investor, vegetable-chopper, last-minute-shop-runner, supporter and taste-tester. Apart from the fact he doesn’t own sweat pants (his idea of lounge clothes are chinos), he’s perfect. We have 2 gorgeous children who light up our days and keep us firmly on our toes. 

I spend most of my days creating imagery for brands, developing recipes for clients and writing resources for my tribe. 

The path to here hasn’t been easy though, and having made allll the mistakes along my journey, I love nothing more than sharing these learnings with you, so you can shortcut your path to your dream career. I write photography, styling and creative business resources especially for YOU and every time a reader downloads them, I do a happy dance (usually to trashy RnB) because that’s what makes what I do worth it.

I am mostly described as slightly annoying, funny, warm hearted and hard working. I tend to agree with all of those things.

WHO I am

Finding the beauty in simple things. Dwelling in the messiness. Laughing more. Worrying less. Clean eating mostly. Indulging often. Being present. Being KIND. Travelling more. Making your own magic. Taking the time to learn.

Thinking happy thoughts. Being active. Appreciating yourself. Making mistakes and being ok with it. Experiences over achievements. Getting outside more. Not sweating the small stuff. Aiming for the stars. Being content with less. 

Going out. Staying in. Exploring. Slow Mornings. Cooking for people. Letting others cook for you. Learning to slow down. Getting shit done. Being grateful. Being the best version of yourself.

P.s A long hot bath and a large glass of oaked chardonnay is the cure for almost anything.

werd:

let's go deep

And clothes in general. My instagram Stories are dominated by my daily threads and my crazy cute daughter.

01. Obsessed with: 

SHOES

There are not many weeks of the year I don’t host (at least) one.  

02. Love me some:

DINNER PARTIES

Allllll the lipstick. I have at least 50 shades, no lie - and they almost all get a work out.

04. I'M KNOWN FOR

LIPSTICK

It’s totally true. I use the dryer for almost everything. Anything “nice”, I just hang up on a rack inside or on a chair.

05. I have

NEVER

On the rocks, with extra salt + served in a pretty AF glass. I also love wine.

06. my go to drink is a

MARGARITA

And I rarely stop at one. Flat white is my go to, mocha is for when i'm feeling down, pour over is when I have time and an espresso is when I need it straight to my veins. 

03. I start the day with

COFFEE

put clothes on the line

I am equal parts team J. Biebs and team Frank Sinatra. I have a super fun playlist on Spotify you should totally check out if you have questionable taste in music (and love total trash 90s RnB). 

07. I DIG

MUSIC

previous SET

I am all kinds of nerd when it comes to the apps I use, and I sport a serious watch tan from it.

08. I

wear

Most nights I sleep less than 3 hours. Hence point 2 in this list. It’s my life’s struggle but everyone has one.

09. I have

CHRONIC INSOMNIA

It’s a neat party trick that made high school parties bearable.

11. 

SECRET TALENT:

I write at least 15 lists a day, and definitely get a rush from ticking shit off.

12. I LOVE BEING

EFFICIENT

No reality TV for me, but everything else is fair game.

13. my GUILTY PLEASURE IS

TV

My favourite food is pasta, pizza and and bread. And ribs, always ribs. 

10. GIMMIE ALL OF THE

CARBS

I sound like a cross between a lifetime smoker and Batman with a thick Aussie accent. And it’s the reason why I could never be a podcaster.

14. I HAVE THE WORST

VOICE

my apple watch religiously

I CAN KICK MYSELF IN THE HEAD

Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Near enough is good enough and done is better than perfect (thanks Jenna K!). 

15. I AM NOT A

PERFECTIONIST
