As a mum of two, I know first-hand the bittersweet moments of watching my kids grow up. Every year, between August and September (their birthdays), you’ll find me laugh-crying over our family photo albums, allowing the nostalgia to wash over me.
I love the tiny adults they’re becoming as they explore the world around them, but how I long for the days when I could still cradle them in my arms and nuzzle into the newborn smell. Time has a knack of whizzing by - one minute you’re changing their nappies and the next, you’re cheering them on as they take their first brave wobbly steps. Before you know it, they’re choosing their own mismatched outfits and waving goodbye as they leave for their first day of school…Each precious photo holds a perfect moment that I can keep going back to, a little key that unlocks each memory.
Capturing stories as they happen, creating art that honours your legacy, it’d be my honour to transform your fleeting moments into lifelong memories.
There is an alleyway in Cronulla, not far from our house, where every time we’re there, the girls will elevate their voices so they can hear the echoes. Every time they do that, I have a quiet giggle at how cute they are and then feel that tug on my heartstrings, wishing they would never grow up.
This is how I feel about photos. Any day, anywhere, you can open your album to resurrect the memories and allow the bliss to wash over you - life echoing back at us from years gone by.
That’s how ‘Echo Life Photography’ came to be.
It’s so lovely to have you here. I am a Birth, Lifestyle & Family Photographer in Sydney, I’m here to capture all the precious moments in your life - especially the ones that seem to slip by in a blink of an eye. The precious, the messy, the fleeting, the engulfing.
If you want to celebrate the special people in your life as they are right now, you have come to the right place. It fills my heart to create art that memorialises a new life entering the world, a mother’s love for her children or the way a goofy father can send his family into a fit of giggles.
Perfectly imperfect, it’d be my privilege to turn those microseconds into a lifetime of memories for you. This is your story to be cherished and passed down for generations to come.
I can’t wait to meet you.
I’m your somewhat typical suburban mum, juggling life as a single mum and a career that I love. You know, one of the ones that magically survive on cold coffee and the kids’ leftover toast crusts.
Far from showy or fancy, you’ll often find me hanging out in my activewear or the classic jeans and white tee combo, with my hair haphazardly tied back. Food is my love language and the beach is my all-time happy place. My favourite “me time” activity is to lay on a hammock in the sun with some smooth beats playing in the background…ahh, the bliss!
I’m naturally an introvert and can be rather shy, but don’t worry, that’s my superpower when it comes to coordinating your photography session! Allowing you and your family to shine, I’ll gently coax you into having fun throughout your shoot.
Experience over production
I see myself as a bit of a woman’s advocate. With every click, I’m here to celebrate you exactly as you are and make you feel like you MATTER. Because you bring amazing value to those around you and the world. You are the heroine of your story.
A serial thinker, I often search the crevices of my soul and mind to push the limits of my emotional strength, aspiring to be kinder and more loving with each passing day.
Woman to woman, mother to mother, friend to friend, I’ll hold space for everything that makes your heart beat the hardest.
