About me

...and why I'd love to photograph you...

Yahoo! Hello, so happy you are here!
So me huh? Ok, I won’t get overly sappy here and tell you about how I love cupcakes and kittens, but I do this photography thing because I get pretty nostalgic and love using my creativity to share the story of your family and connection.
Being able to capture authentic moments of tenderness and sharing our human-ness is a huge driving force for me.

That’s why I love what I do and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else other than in that moment photographing you!

I live in Brisbane (insert: Brisbane Family Photographer so peeps can find me!) and am Mumma to two pretty lovely girls that make me super proud, and also frustrate the living daylights out of me at the same time (and they know it). I’m hoping their “spiritedness” pays dividends as they grow into adulthood and have to face the world. I’m also lucky to have a super awesome husband I get to do this life with! I knew he was a keeper and when he proposed after only 8 weeks of being together, I knew my life would be kept interesting!!!

These guys are my number one priority and I’ve created this business around our family so that I can maximise my time with them as they grow up. I will always be grateful for that opportunity. I am also acutely aware of how fast the time passes, and am passionate about preserving memories for other families in this fleeting season that is, “Raising Children”. It often doesn’t seem fleeting but it truly is…

“A massive thank you to Jess for making the whole experience relaxing and fun. Jess set us all at ease, and our family laughed and joked our way through the shoot, and this fun and love shined in the final photos.
My advice, stop procrastinating, relax into the process and you will be thrilled with the moments captured by Jess of your family loving life together.” Mary

I love building relationships with my clients during the time we spend together before, during and after our sessions. This aspect brings me so much joy, satisfaction and also allows me to continue to capture families multiple times, over the course of several years as their families grow and change.

“Any awkwardness of not knowing "what to do" was quickly gone with chatting casually to such a genuine, fun & easy going person. Jess really encouraged us to just be us, to enjoy the afternoon & each other as we usually would and a result she captured absolutely perfect shots that clearly show anyone who sees them our love of each other & our eldest boys cheeky fun nature.” Amanda.

If you are wanting your photographs to make you ‘feel’ something when you look at them, you need to ‘feel’ something when they are bing taken. I will help you feel comfortable and relaxed while I capture the story of your family.
I’d love to talk to you about creating some memories of your family in all it’s glorious, messy, real, authentic-ness.

Creating a window back in time to joy-filled moments in your family’s lives is the aim of this game!!! So let’s play!

I can't wait to hear from you,
