I am a mother to 3 busy kidlets who keep me running most days. I started out in the usual way, photographing families and weddings in a lifestyle way, everyone dressed in coordinating outfits, children smiling for my camera in a park somewhere. I always felt disconnected from the honesty of real life in these images and didn't feel fulfilled as an artist. Slowly over the years I moved away from lifestyle photography and this year I declared that I would no longer shoot anything other than what I wanted. Authentic. Raw. Honest. True. Real life. Welcome to my journey.
