hello

NICE TO MEET YOU

I’m Jess.

 

I’m a mum of two gorgeous kids, Rueben and Bonnie and a wife to my he-can-do-anything husband Leigh.

 

I didn't always have this business. In fact, just a few years ago I was doing completely different work in my day to day job, but I longed for being able to express my creativity. I needed a creative outlet which is something I haven't had since high school.

 

When my daughter Bonnie was born, the experience of becoming a mother had ultimately led me to my new career path of photography. Ever since I've hit the ground running.

 

I utterly LOVE working with families and capturing the special way newborns bring joy and wonderment to their families.

 

I love watching movies and chilling on the couch, snuggled under a blanket with my kids eating junk and drinking Kombucha.

I love spending time with family and friends and sharing the frustrating (and hilarious) challenges of parenting, they bring laughter and a sense of normality to my life.

 

QUALIFICATIONS/ACHIEVEMENTS

 

I launched my photography business in February 2013, before being a hobbyist since 2011. I’ve featured in the well-known photographer’s resource hub “Ever Illuminated” to help budding and established photographers. I’ve also featured the incredible Sheyne Rowley dubbed the famous “Australian Baby Whisperer”~ the author of the ‘Dream Baby Guide’ book.

I’ve attended many newborn workshops to perfect the art of newborn photography. Including internationally recognised newborn photographers, Erin Tole, Rachel Vanoven and Erin Elizabeth Photography.

 

 

SILLY TRUTHS

at age 12, I put MY PET CHOOKS broken LEG in a plaster cast and it healed!

 

I’ve hidden in the car from the kids to eat chocolate cake mix.

 

If I could, I'd order just pork crackling & apple sauce.

 

APPARENTLY i DON'T SEE FRIENDS WAVING WHEN I'M DRIVING. i SNOB EVERYONE!
