I’ve been thinking recently about how much I LOVE being a photographer and how lucky I am to have my dream job photographing children in the beautiful City of Light (not to mention another few international cities too). Not only do I meet so many wonderful people from all over the world but it brings me immense amounts of joy to photograph children and capture the unique magic of each family. Talk about my dream job.

I was thrilled recently to meet up with Randi & her family for a photo shoot once again and it was great to see how much the kiddies had grown. No wonder it’s my dream job. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy taking photos of uber cute kids in Paris.

Hope you like the sneak peek full of smiles Randi and it has to be said … your kids are DIVINE!!

If you’ve had a family photo session you know it’s no easy feat to get everyone ready. Personally I find the experience somewhat stressful and I only have three children.

So when I met Kate & Alex and their FIVE children (yes that’s five kids under 7 years old) at the Musee du Louvre early one Saturday morning, I was in complete awe of how easy they made it look. Everyone looked fabulous and fresh and was dressed to perfection. Even today I’m still impressed by how fabulous Kate looks as a mum of five and how she made everything seem so effortless. She’s a true inspiration. Peronally I can’t begin to imagine how crazy my life would be with five kiddies.

And of course I was in photographer’s heaven with so many gorgeous kids to photograph. And with the backdrop of beautiful Paris for family portraits what’s not to love? Kate & Alex, I hope you love the sneak peek and I look forward to sharing the rest of the images with you really soon.

In case you haven’t worked it out I LOVE TO TRAVEL. And so I was thrilled when I was recently invited to have some family shoots in Dubai. I’ve travelled to Dubai a few times before and can’t believe how much the city has changed in the past 15 years.

I was lucky enough to photograph a south african family I photographed in Paris a few years ago and they now have a third daughter. It’s always a treat to meet families again. Especially in different countries. Did I mention how much I LOVE my job as a family photographer ?!?

Needless to say it’s pretty hot in Dubai at this time of year so we started our photo shoot bright and sparkling before the sun was too strong and there weren’t too many people on the beach. And I was thrilled when I was greeted with an early morning coffee to kickstart the day. I have to confess being on the beach at that time of day was heavenly. Not to mention with the three gorgeous girls I was in photographer’s heaven and what a great time we had.

I’m very much looking forward to being back in Dubai in January 2016 for a limited number of Family and Personal Branding photo shoots so please drop me an email via the contact button at the top if you are tempted by a photo session.




It’s always a treat to photograph american families who are on vacation in Paris and it’s even better when I get to have sessions with families I have met before. So I was thrilled when I was asked to photograph this family once again in Paris, six years down the track. I last met the family when Lily Grace was only six years old and what a cutie she was. She’s now fast becoming a beautiful young woman. And this time I was lucky enough to also met her handsome brother. We met one stunning Parisian morning for the family photo shoot and I confess I thoroughly enjoyed our morning together in Paris at and around the Eiffel Tower. Not to mention my favourite bridge the Pont Alexander III. Once againI’ve been counting my lucky stars that I am lucky enough to be doing my dream job. Capturing the magic of families in Paris through photographs. Hope you like the sneak peek.

I’m thrilled to be back in Paris for Spring Photo Sessions. Although the past few weeks have been extremely busy with back to back photo sessions. On my way to Paris I stopped into Dubai for some family photography sessions with a Middle Eastern flavour. And what fun that was. Extremely hot but great shooting at new locations. And what made it better is I was able to connect with some old and new faces. I love how small the world is becoming especially as I love shooting in different international cities. Singapore, Bali, Hong Kong and the USA to come later in the year too. (And of course I’m very open to other suggestions too.)

However of course it’s always great to be back in Paris, my soul city, to breathe in her beauty, savour the Parisian moments and be inspired to live a life that I love through taking photographs in the beautiful City of Light. It really is my dream job.

So I was thrilled the first morning of my Spring Sessions when I was blessed with the most glorious Parisian morning. The sun was shining, the joggers were out and there was a hint of summer in the air. And best of all is I met a wonderful young family who were a delight to meet and to photograph too. Mieke, it was so great to meet you and your beautiful family and I hope you like the sneak peek. I’m really looking forward to sharing all of the photos with you really soon.
