About Me...

There is nothing I love more than seeing the world through a viewfinder. It allows the world to be framed in such a way that brings your attention to the fine details and emotion in that single, fleeting moment. A moment that will never be the same again.

I've been taking photos since I got my first camera as a 5-year-old. So began a fascination with capturing anything and everything, allowing me to see the beauty around me I wouldn't have otherwise noticed.

I want to frame this beauty for you and reconnect you with your most important memories.

Because... life in this moment, will never be the same again.

The past, present and future...

As a young adult I followed my passion and received my bachelors of art degree in Photography. Since then, I have explored many different career avenues, some inherently linked to my passion in photography and some further afield in marketing and nutrition. As a trained PADI Divemaster, I've committed some of my career to honing the skill of underwater photography and assisting renowned underwater fashion photographers. I've also held marketing leadership roles around the world and am a practising health and wellness coach.

Over time, my old cameras got dusty and like any love affair, things got complicated. Then I started a family. There's nothing quite like having babies to make you re-evaluate life, right? I picked up some new gear, started snapping away and just couldn't stop. Soon people started asking me to take photos of their families, babies, themselves... you name it.

Life seems to have brought me full circle. 

Being a "3rd culture kid" having lived all over the world and having mixed heritage, Hong Kong is my home now with my British-born Chinese husband and 2 kids who have about 10 passports!

Now I'm here, in this moment, ready to capture your uniqueness.
