The wooden piece of art […]

My 2016 highlights

It almost feels like closing another chapter in life. 2016 was a very interesting year for my photography business. […]

From marriage to parenthood: precious photographs of Kayleigh and Chris

I feel really blessed with my job. I meet so many amazing people and I am privileged to witness key moments in their lives.
