your family photographer
Hi! I'm so happy you're here!
I am a self taught photographer and I love my job.
I started Wild Eyed in 2010 after friends asked me to shoot their engagement photos which then led me to dressing my sisters up in my mum's wedding dress and taking photos of them so I could create some sort of portfolio. To this date, I have shot 75 weddings and over 450 family sessions. Clients have flown me around the world (India, Morocco and Peru to name a few places) to document their lives.
The older I get, the more I realize the importance of photography.
We take photos to remember.
The older I get, the more I find myself looking at my own family photos from when I was a kid and teen and wanting to see my family history in albums.
And now as an adult, I hire someone each year to document me with my pets (my little family) because I know, down the road, I will want to have these memories of us together.
I LOVE that I get to use my talent in this way.
It's an important job and I'm happy to help your family.
Did you know the single-most photographed
subject in the world is family?
Your family, my family, any family.
If a smart phone is on hand or a cheap camera is kicking around we’ll always be taking pictures of our kids, parents and pets living their lives.
I’m talking about the fun stuff, the candid moments of the people and animals we love with all their quirks and personality.
Each new image adds to the mother lode of memories we cherish.
Sometimes we’ll take family photography to a higher level.
We’ll hire a professional photographer for a portrait session.
And then something weird happens. Parents scrub their children clean, slick back their hair, dress them in matching outfits and head to the nearest portrait studio – an environment so stiff and contrived it's a miracle if the people in the final images resemble anything like a real family.
Well, I approach my photography differently.
I step into your world and get to know you.
Your life becomes my studio.
In my other life I was a nanny.
I worked for years in a dog day care.
Kids and pets love me. And I love them.
Families come alive before my lens.
Everyone is natural and real.
I let kids be kids. Your love shines through.
There’s nothing fake or fabricated about my sessions.
Together we have fun and keep things real.
That’s what makes my work different.
It’s why my clients are so delighted with the results.
