april maternity session

Garth emailed me to surprise his wife with a maternity/newborn session and the next day I got an email from April :)Â I let him answer it with the surprise and was so happy to meet April and Garth a few weeks later.

The babies name is a surprise as well but I know that whatever he is named he is in amazing hands. I cannot wait to meet him.


I think photographs, pictures, printed images, are some of the most important things after our hierarchy of needs. I have one photograph of my Mother who died when I was 16 and it is much more to me then just a print on piece of paper. It’s my only tangiable connection to who she was.

I love family photographs. Anyone’s. I love that they exist. Garth and April are in the process of archiving Garths mother Tavia Mullholland’s photographs and I enjoyed very much getting to look through them, thank you both.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.


Sharing my latest work both personal and commercial. Leave a comment or say hello :)
