So you want to know a little about me? I am a kid/baby/family photographer, but I guess that much is clear! I am 23 years old, living in Wellington, New Zealand, but traveling a fair bit to Australia and the States (I hope to add Europe to this little list soon)
I graduated from Massey University with a Bachelor of Design – majoring in Graphics, in 2009. Although my career didn’t end up following that path, I have a huge appreciation for good design, and plan to start featuring more of my favourite things on this blog in 2010.
I love to create… when I’m not taking photos or working, you can usually find me cooking, sewing, or dreaming up some crazy project that may or may not come out as it appeared in my head (the latest was a felt-ball pot mat, I got as far as the balls, which are now scattered through out the house)
I have a doberman/chihuahua, Ruby (the doberman half is all in her head) who keeps the household entertained with her silly self.
I feel so lucky to be doing the thing I love, and to share the love, Rachel Devine and I are working on an exciting project for people wanting to learn how to use their fancy cameras and take rocking photos they can be proud of. More info on that coming soon!
All my photos are taken on a Canon 5D (not the MII though, I wish, oh that HD video is beautiful). My 24-70mm 2.8L lens doesn’t leave my camera, it is a pretty awesome lens for my needs. I don’t actually have any others at the moment, but I have my eye on a nice 50mm. All photos are shot in JPG and edited in Photoshop using the actions I created, Childs Play & Twirl
I suppose that most people share a portrait on these about pages, huh?… I am one of those annoying people who doesn’t show up on ‘film’, evidenced by my pathetic lack of photos on Facebook and elsewhere on the internets. But I am trying to get better about being on the other side of the lens on occassion. This is probably the best you will find at the moment… Taken by my lovely friend and business partner, Rachel Devine (small child also provided by aforementioned).
