I'm a portrait photographer, based in Melbourne, Australia. I love serving families with teens and tweens (13-19 years old) because I know how life gets busy during these years. We just don't have as many photos of our kids from this stage of life. I can help! Have a look around the blog and meet some of the outstanding teens I have worked with in Australia and the USA.
As a fairly recent transplant to Australia myself, I love meeting teens who have moved from other countries because their parents believed they would have more opportunities or a better future here.

This guy wins the prize for traveling the farthest for a photo shoot. Not only did he travel over from the US, but he came from the farthest corner of that country – all the way from Florida! I’ve been photographing Carter long before he was a teenager, since he was about six years old. […]

The adult version of your child is emerging. Conversations change, they become a little more serious, sometimes a little more […]
“From Kabul to California” Meet Mariam. She is originally from Afghanistan but now resides in the US. She is inspiring, resilient and extremely hard-working. In August 2021 the Taliban rolled into Kabul to take back control of the country. While the US and other countries withdrew, Mariam and thousands of other high-risk Afghans knew their […]
“Looking Back. Looking Forward.“ In July, I traded the dreary, wet Melbourne winter for a few weeks in California to visit family and friends. While there, I spent time with several teens and high school graduates. I had the honour of doing some photoshoots in some simple but meaningful places for these teens. We worked […]
