• About Me

    Photography is so much more than just "good pictures". Every man and his dog has a camera these days. Documenting a piece of your life with a camera, whether it's the day you take your vows, or the the photos of your one week old baby: these moments are sacred. Some never to be repeated. Choosing a photographer is a big decision that should be carefully considered.

    I focus primarily on family photography: from maternity, to newborns, to toddlers, to group family shots- I specialize in making the most of your treasured family moments, and giving the precious gift of photography to you.

    I am, myself, just a family girl. I married my knight in shining armour in 2001, and as testament to my love of family, we have 4 wonderful busy boys, and a sweet little daughter who is now in Heaven. I'm a little bit crazy sometimes (which the kiddos love in our shoots) and I love a good giggle. I am also mildly OCD and try to look on life with a half full cup. Preferably of sweet tea.

    But more than that, I am a professional. I respect both your money and your time- and I strive to inspire you with pictures that you love, and hold dear.

    It would truly be an privilege to be your photographer, and share a little bit of what I so love doing, to give you pictures of the people you love a whole lot.

Shone Maternity Shoot

“Where there is great love, there are always miracles” – Willa Cather

Maternity shoots are always a hard one- 9 times of of 10, mum doesn’t feel beautiful…. but here’s the thing, and I’ve said this before: she IS beautiful! Being pregnant is one of God’s greatest miracles… that in your womb, you could nurture and carry this perfect child from a dot right through to complete and utter perfection. The privilege of that responsibility is beautiful, that as you walk around, inside you God is weaving, knitting, growing, perfecting. And that’s really what I hope to capture when I take photos… the miracle of growing life.

This little family is very dear to me, and in just a few short weeks will be welcoming their second little boy. Eeek. A houseful of boys. So exciting. So loud. So busy. So AWESOME!

So, we were having a discussion about how big the baby was. And we decided there was only one way to tell!So to all you preggie ladies out there: as you contemplate your weight gain, or your stretch marks, or how hot and uncomfortable you feel, remember that you, my friend, are a walking miracle, and proof of God’s grace, and his love.

Be joyful xx

Eggers Girls

“Like stardust glistening on fairies wings

Little girls dreams are of magical things” – Unknown

Ok, I have a little confession. I kinda like photographing girls. Don’t get me wrong: I LOVE (like, seriously dig it), photographing little boys too… but, well, I guess I am surrounded by boys all the time… and sometimes the girl in me (because, *cough* I am a girl) just wants to hang out with GIRLS for a bit. So I lucked out here, and got two sweet little girls, and their lovely mum to photograph…. I had the Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART lens to try out- so I spent the week making the most of it. Not all these pics are with the 35mm, because I do love me my 24-70mm 2.8.

And just incase you thought it was all smooth sailing… here are some images that keep it real…..

And is everyone happy ALL of the time?

Apparently not.

And while I try keep everyone entertained. Sometimes, the face on the right, proves that I can be the most BORING person on EARTH!

Have a happy fairy filled weekend, people.
