Please view My Wedding, Portraiture and Travel Photography website

I live in Adelaide, Australia and have completed my Diploma in Commercial Photography. My passions are travel and photography and I love to combine the two.

Although Australian by birth, I spent 9 years living in London and Essex, and returned to Australia, with my English husband and British Blue puss cat, 9 years ago.

If my photography evokes an emotion, then my work here is done. If it moves you, then please don’t hesitate to buy something, even if it is a card. I thank you in advance for taking the time to view my site, as I know that your time is precious.
