I love how where ever you go in the #bayofplenty
you will often see our mighty mountain!
still one of my favorite shoots to date! the desert is so dang beautiful, do you agree?!
Aaron and Bree have the cutest love story!! They’re both obsessed with records and so of course we had to get some shots with these two lovebirds amongst their favorite albums!
Also, thank you to everyone who sent me sweet messages and checked on me yesterday. You all are so sweet and it’s really appreciated. This week will be a little rough for me but I’m just going to keep my head down and focus on my work.
Thanks to everyone who have been so patient and kind to me these last few days!
We are so lucky to live in this world, at this time and to be experiencing what we are. It only occurs once. Nothing is ever the same again.
Chilling with my trusted work mate (my camera hehe) in the natural light studio before a corporate headshot shoot today.
I love to shoot using natural light! I think it’s the most flattering light you can get (if you use it right)!

One of my favourite moments to capture at weddings - the giving away of the bride 😭 Though this most often doesn’t still hold its traditional meaning, there’s something inherently powerful about this act, and this moment...no matter what you believe.
🚑 Has anyone else ended up in hospital after hiking the Milford track?
I always seem to find myself in strange predicaments (Mostly skin related & when I'm doing something fun)
Here’s a few examples-
🍺I was living in Dublin at the time and went to Prague for the long weekend. I took a new face moisturizer with me and when I opened it the first night a little bit of yellow liquid oozed out of the tube before the cream, my thoughts were I should have shaken that, but I applied it anyway.
The next morning I woke up with a bright red, swollen and very itchy face.
We tried going to the pharmacy & the hospital for a doctors apt. but know-one spoke English
So I spent the rest of the weekend hiding my face and trying my best to still enjoy myself. 🐠Great Barrier Reef- I was so itchy and red all over. It was prickly heat rash from the humidity. I had to spray myself every 5 mins with a topical treatment. 🥣Vietnam- developed weird white blisters on my leg while doing a motorbike tour. The guide paid for me to go to this Vietnamese hospital. I was seen to immediately, even though there was a huge line of Vietnamese waiting and was given an injection. I still have no idea what it was but it worked.
🏃🏻♀️Milford track- I got a blister on my foot which got infected. The infection started traveling up my leg and I developed a high fever. In hospital for 24 hours and currently on a 3 day bed rest. 💉
Has anything like this happened to you? Cheer me up with your funny stories 😷👍
period tee is going to be part of the National exhibit at Te Papa! We get to work with some pretty awesome people, like Olie, founder of @wa.collective
proudly wearing her (now even more famous) period tee ❤️🍒 We’ll be sharing more of the visuals we’ve created for Wā soon, so eyes peeled 👀 Wā collective does some bloody important work in ending period poverty, period waste and period taboo👌and as you can probably tell, we’re pretty glad we can be a part of that!
Sisters! Aren't they beautiful!

The girls from @themadplatternz
are so incredibly talented and I was delighted to meet them and photograph their delicious food at the FAWC event over in Hawkes Bay on Saturday!! What an amazing event, and the food was so so good!! Here’s a little sneak peek.
Be you. Do you. Love you. ❤️
••I’m finally all caught up on my editing and ready for my last leg of the trip. I also took pictures throughout this time with my family over the last two weeks. And today I finished editing them and got to share them with my family. They loved them. It was my gift to my grandmas for her birthday. I created a slideshow that I’ll be sharing shortly and I’ll post a couple into my story ❤️
I’m 20 minutes I’m off to the airport to fly to Amsterdam! Spending the night and part of the day tomorrow. So excited!!••
Getting up before sunrise was worth it for this shoot with @wellnesswithin_nz
🧡 Creating beautiful brand imagery takes work, but having a stunning model and a great location really helps👌We love working with talented professionals and businesses to create visual content that helps them stand out 👀
March can’t come fast enough for Jess & Oliver’s wedding 🖤 I know there’s so many stunning wedding venues out there, but these two have found a magical location nestled in the middle of the Rimutaka forest park. The ceremony will take place in a big field surrounded by native bush, and we’ll go out exploring the rail trail, and the magical forests (pictured above). Aren’t we lucky in New Zealand to be surrounded by beautiful places right on our doorstep 🌲🛤
Im in love with such genre of photoshoot 😍
BOOK your love-story shoot before Christmas for old price 💛
