These are a few of my favourite things...
After a degree in Anthropology, 10 years in travel and a Diploma in Photography, the thing that turned my hobby into a business I love, was having my own kids. If you’re a parent, you know the feeling – you want to capture all the little details and fun adventures as they grow. Because they grow waaaay too fast!
Since then, I’ve been privileged to tell the stories of so many wonderful families. I love that every day is different; one day I might be sniffing a newborn’s hair (sigh) and the next hiking through the forest looking for pretty spots to take pictures. I also love that I get to hear your stories, play with your kids and show you the beauty you might be too busy to see. Nothing warms my heart more than knowing we have captured something real and true and special, your family story that will only be treasured more as the years pass by.
If you’re here, it’s because you’re looking for the right person who just ‘gets’ what family life is really like. First up, thanks for stopping by. So you can get to know me before I’m all up in your story, here’s a little bit about mine...
I have two crazy energetic boys aged 7 and 10, a hubby who likes avoiding photos and reno projects and a lime green retro caravan called 'Grug'. We live in the Tallebudgera Valley and other than those 2 months of the year I have to wear a cardi, you’ll usually find us in the pool, up a creek, or at the beach. The water is our happy place.
This is the kind of family photo I love. My kids don’t want to ‘sit and smile’ for the camera, and when I’m old and grey I want to remember those days for what they really were. Perhaps they were crazy, exhausting and emotional, but they were also fun and filled with laughter. If I’m too old to remember them, I want my photos of these days to remind me how they felt.
GOLD COAST FAMILY & NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER
I would highly recommend Heidi as she has a unique way of making everyone feel relaxed in front of a camera. She captured my family beautifully (no easy task with a dog and a toddler).
