Thank you for taking a minute to get to know me! I love connecting with people, so if you have any questions or just want to chat, please feel free to send me a note.
I believe in taking photographs that help you feel wonderful in your skin and in your own life.
I know what it's like to be very hard on yourself.
Always questioning whether you’re a good enough mother or making enough time for loved ones. Comparing yourself to everyone else then wondering why you can’t be more organised, more laid back, more beautiful...
But you are perfectly flawed and your life is a work in progress. Just like everyone else’s. I believe your photographs should be a celebration of your ‘you-ness’. An opportunity for you to see the beauty in yourself, your family and your life . . . right now because I also know what it’s like to put something off because you don’t feel good enough.
You say to yourself that you’ll wait until you’ve lost that weight you feel so crappy about or until your dodgy fringe has grown out a bit. Let’s face it, there will always be something. Wouldn’t it be great to see yourself and your life without all the comparisons and insecurities that weigh you down?
I've got your back if . . .You’re worried about how you’ll look in your photographs because I will lead you and guide you through the whole experience. Whether it's family or maternity photography you're looking for, this is what I do for you.
I’m probably not the right photographer for you if . . .
You’re looking for something ‘cheap and quick’. I also like to spend lots of time with you because that’s how the magic happens. So what more can I say? We’re probably not going to be a good match.
"Ivy made me feel at ease throughout our session and made me feel comfortable in my own skin. I never thought I would have so much fun in a photoshoot!"
Wondering if you and I will hit it off?
I love nothing more than feeling a real connection between us and knowing we might become friends. Here’s a few bits and pieces about me that might give you some insight into whether that’s a possibility...
In my spare time, you'll find me singing at the top of my lungs in my tiny booth, a.k.a the gas chamber. When I'm in the mood, I record some of my songs. I love watching comedy and superhero films. I am a child at heart and I find my joy in every day.
Long story short: I spent a few years being with young children as a School Nurse. My main job description was mostly to kiss boo-boos away. Sometimes kids only come to my clinic just to get hugs...and stickers ha! Funny enough, I still use my skills and insight on each & every photo shoot, as I calm the nerves of parents and manoeuvre kids out of meltdown mode, and help everyone connect in the most genuine ways.
