I absolutely LOVE working with Popping Candy... from a creative point I get to pretty much do what I like... and not only that... I get to do it with shoes that I love! These flats are no exception... they are the coolest shoes with such fun and quirky designs. They are comfortable and stylish and I serisouly can't recommend them enough.
The only problem with photographying Popping Candy shoes... I have a new shoe obsession
Chris and Tony, thank you SO much for having me over in your family home to spend time with your tribe. I know it's rare to have you all in one place at the same time, even just in the same country for a photo. So I hope you love this real, honest and raw account of your gorgeous family.
Your family is one who always has a soft spot in my heart... something I get to do often as a photographer is witness bonds and relationships... Chris and Tony, you are both such an incredible couple and its clear to see why your family is so close.
Last time I photographed these guys they were a family of three... It was so lovely to meet Jake's new little sister, Ella Rose. Ella is one seriously cute little girl who has both her parents and her big brother wrapped around her little pinkie. I smiled my whole way through photographing this session... how could I not when I had little Ella watching me so intently the entire time.
Jo & David, thank you SO much for entrusting me once again to capture the beautiful bond your lovely little family have. You guys are always such a delight to work with!
I have neglected this website for a little too long now so I thought I'd better get back to posting some recent work up... starting with some shots of my babies and their cousins taken over the summer time...

If you haven't heard about Popping Candy Shoes then you have been missing out!... Such a fun, cute and stylish heel that is not only comfy but also super funky and works with every girls individual style... you can go as crazy or as minimal as you want... either way you'll love these heels and I LOVE photographing them
These guys are so much fun to be around... such a beautiful family... I love being able to see how much the kids grow through the seasons.
Check out a few of my favs from their session...
Now that the days are getting longer and the nights getting warmer we can shoot family lifestyle sessions midweek in the evenings...

A huge thank you to my gorgeous model, Zoe for braving the freezing cold weather and doing it while looking amazing! She totally rocked this shoot and I can't wait to get her back out for some more dance style shoots.
A huge thank you to the very beautiful Letisha who modelled for me at the Auckland Winter Gardens over the school holidays... It's always fun to be able to get out and shoot without any pressure or requirements... just trying out new poses and working with different light and locations.
Letisha totally rocked the session like a pro (notice her gorgeous makeup and hair done entirely by herself... 100% on point)

Love hanging out with my little friend Rosa and her big brother Georgio... these two always make me smile and the sessions are so much fun... they even got me to show them my flossing dance skills.
