A Little About Me

PBDMe-2So you already know I have a thing for beautiful photography. It’s well and truly my number one creative outlet, but here’s a blurb on my other passions in life and how I came to be a photographer.

My road to photography started as a hobby in high school (in the late 90s). I used to delight in experimenting with film photography and anticipate the end product of processing my black and white rolls of film in the darkroom at school. Eventually, teaching became my career and I was just photographing for fun. Years later I found myself capturing friends on their wedding day that I started to take on the odd job documenting weddings and working alongside a wonderful mentor who has since retired. In 2011, I completed my Diploma in Photography and not long after that I had my son. Immediately, I fell in love with photographing newborns and children!

When I’m not running my business, I swap my bulky camera gear for a bag filled with an iPad, books, resources and lessons. I’ve been a high school History teacher for over a decade and a half. It’s challenging, inspiring, fun, hectic, mentally, physically and emotionally draining, and of course, fulfilling!

I’m also deeply in love with the family I have created. Besides my super supportive and understanding hubby, there’s also my adorable little guy and girl, Xavier and Sophie, whom I love spending my days with.

I’m a self-confessed nerd who loves spy-action flicks, music with heart-warming vocals, cute classic roadsters, handmade/vintage crafts and objects, sewing, DIY home improvements and decor, gardening, and my greatest weakness of all – desserts! I’m a wanderlust at heart and I can’t think of a better combination than travel, history and photography. Whisk me away to any destination, leave me to immerse in its history and culture, and I’m in heaven!
