I am a dreamer, a romantic and big on vibes and energy.
It wasn't until my first trip to Paris, a place I had always dreamed of, that I discovered my true love of taking photos. I would wander the streets for days snapping away, picturing models in poses and locations.
After over a decade in the events industry I went on maternity leave to have my daughter and I was blessed to be in a headspace to explore what I really wanted to do...
I mentally gathered all the things I love... Love, fashion, rock & roll, sexy French attitude, black and white, hippy vibes, wabi-sabi things and places, champagne, waterfalls, nature and the list goes on...
I found a way to combine it all whilst doing one of my favourite and most important actions - inspiring confidence and self-love in my fellow women.
If someone is kind I see their beauty shine. Unfortunately in our youth and perfection obsessed society sometimes it's a little harder for them to see it in themselves. I want to help you see your beauty... Capture that essence of you that other people see.
I believe the photoshoot is as much about the experience as it is about the end product... I want to get to know you, what you like and what you don't so you can feel safe, relaxed and most importantly have fun.
Come play, we'll make beautiful images you'll treasure forever. Reach out on email, phone or Instagram for packages and investment information.
I feel it's important to make a difference where you can and that's why I'm proud to align with "Support the Girls Australia - Empowering Women with Dignity and Respect - One Bra at a Time..."
One of the goals of Support The Girls Australia is to ensure that they empower and encourage self-esteem and well being in homeless and disadvantaged women from all cultures across Australia by supplying them with the crucial items that they require to facilitate their overall health. So many women are in DESPERATE need of bras and personal hygiene products and toiletries. Too many are choosing food over their own personal well being.
So what does Support the Girls do and why are they different? They provide women with bras, sanitary products, toiletries, new underwear. Their main focus is bras. There are so many charities that focus on sanitary items but nobody does bras. They believe what sets them apart is that they actually support these women face to face. They measure and fit them, and whilst doing this they listen and find out what their needs are and then ensure they are connected to the relevant services. There is grey area in the service industry from this perspective. They do not just hand out product to support services to hand out to people. This is done by their volunteers across the country. All donations stay within the community they are received from.
The women they are supporting are homeless for so many reasons. Domestic violence, financial hardship, loss of a spouse or circumstances beyond their control. We need to cater for all facets of being disadvantaged. There is a huge lack of awareness as to how women become homeless. Support the Girls believe breaking down the stigma is vital to get more community understanding and support on board. The drug/alcohol fueled image portrayed by the media is so far from the truth. So many of these women are articulate, well educated women who through circumstances have found themselves on struggle street. Nobody is immune.
Together we can make a difference in women's lives - typically before a boudoir shoot you probably sort through your undie draw wondering what the heck to wear... Could you spare an extra five minutes to consider any unwanted bras that you might like to donate? You can bring them along to your shoot and I will donate to the drop off points. I also pledge to donate $25 from every shoot to support their fund raising.
