My Story



Image taken by my talented daughter Lila age 12


I started photographing children when I had my first child and have not stopped since.

I have always loved photography even as a child. It has always fascinated me, I soon realized how much I loved photographing children when I had my first baby. I remember sitting with her on my lap, starring at her gorgeous little face, like it was yesterday.
My daughter was growing too quickly, I almost wanted to pickle her to keep her small, I wanted to capture every single minute.
I really wanted to be able to do the same for other parents and because of that Images of life was born.
I remember seeing a newborn photograph in a magazine and thinking it was the most beautiful image I had ever seen, I knew then that I wanted to be able to create images like that, so I spent a ton of money and time training, because I wanted to be the best I could be, because if I was going to do this, I was going to do it properly, no half measures. Now when I look at that image I can see just how far I have come and how much the hard work has paid off. I have exceeded that image by far and that makes me extremely happy to know that I have achieved this, from no idea to Associate and award winning. To being able to provide my clients with not only stunning images of their baby, but a service I am proud of. Each and everyone of you, when you book with me, gets 100% of my passion, determination, creation and love put into your session.

I train every year to ensure you receive the best possible experience, from images, to the time in the studio, to the product choice.
