Here’s a little bit of a rundown of what I’ve been doing recently….


Winter this year has been a bit like me crawling under a rock and just making art (a colourful rock, but a rock nonetheless!). I participated in #the100dayproject where I combined both my painting and photographic practices as well as slowly chipping away at my new (hopefully improved) artist website. I’ve also become a part of GUILD here in Dunedin, which sells locally made and designed products. Here are a few images that give you a feel for what I’ve been up to. If you want to see more of my work – check out my instagram account.

I photographed the lovely Silvana and Rodrigo earlier on this year on what could be one of the windiest days that Dunedin could possible throw at us – I mean seriously – just look at the photos! Silvana and Rodrigo are from Argentina and used to live in New Zealand a few years back and were hoping to get some pre-wedding-wedding photos (does that actually make sense?) and make the most of the beautiful scenery we have here in Dunedin. They wanted to have wedding photos that captured them as themselves – ‘not all dressed up – thats not us – we’re causal people’ – this really resonated with me because I LOVE taking photos like that!  Silvana and Rodrigo were such a pleasure to photograph – despite the wind on tunnel beach (and the fear that we were going to be blown into the sea – thankfully it was not so windy at the University!!) – thank you for letting me photograph you and all the best for your wedding!

I approached my lovely friend Helen a while back to photograph her family in their soon to be old home. These photos are dear to my heart – they’re the kind of photos I love to take – people being real. No facades, no pretence, just real life. The idea behind this shoot was to document their lives in this house – a house of firsts for them – before they move onto their new home in a different town.This family was so much fun to photograph – Helen is a designer and is the creative mind behind tinch design studio, and she has SUCH an eye for detail plus so much of what she makes has personal meaning, and as you will see, she has some crazy skills as a stylist to boot! Anyways, thank you Helen and Michael for letting me into your home and hanging out with you all!

I’ve got a real beautiful wedding to share with you today – John and Stephanie got married at Highgate church in Dunedin. The thing I absolutely love about these two was that they were so over-the-moon happy to be married and you could not wipe the smiles of their faces. Honestly, it was awesome! With some pretty horrendous weather in town, we made a brave call and headed out to the Otago Peninsula (in the rain – cue me praying the whole way there!!) and was greeted with some beautiful mist – but no rain – hooray! The bridal party were so fun to photograph – everyone was super photogenic, and I couldn’t resist putting in some of the more candid shots in the mix (sorry guys!!!!) – they were just such a good laugh!
