Hi! So great to see you here.
Take a little wander around this space I have created, and get to know me a little better.
First, call me Angie.
Angela Louise is what my mother would called me when I was being particularly "adventurous" as a kid. I was your typical "hunter/gatherer": always on the look-out for the next adventure, capturing that perfect moment; collecting tokens from nature and my little journeys, and creating authentic memories. Later as a mum of three boys and wife of one I have relished this approach through our family travels and have come to count my camera as the only essential carry-on to our life. I have told many stories that are relived through photography. And what I love most is sharing them, so please, take a look at my gallery collection.
Family is what drives me, and moving with mine to the spectacular Northern Beaches has been a huge inspiration and a real homecoming for all of us. In photography, taking my love of water, open-air and seizing the opportunity to get a little bit messy, makes the beautiful beach surroundings the perfect stage for creating some really authentic moments. My love is photo-documenting family life - be it an expectant family, a growing family or a complete one. I'm in awe of it all !
My photo sessions are a chance for everyone to slow down, breathe a bit deeper, watch each other and smile. Sometimes we busy ourselves preparing the next thing that we find we have run out of time to enjoy what is happening in that moment. My sessions are designed to capture you and your family in your most natural space (leaving out the early morning school preparations, perhaps!). I'm happiest working in your background, keeping everybody moving so no-one gets bored or sick of the camera in their face. Rather than expecting me to "stage" shots, be ready for a session full of exploration, movement, fun and plenty of chatting along the way. My sessions give you a chance to bring everyone together, in the same place, at the same time....Imagine that!
My finished images are produced to compel and connect you to that moment; to encourage you to stop and ponder a while longer and rediscover your truth and your unique place in the world.
I wander through life, with my camera and a sense of wonder, wholeheartedness and gratitude. Whenever I get the opportunity to offer this experience - through documenting the precious "bits and pieces" - to my clients, I realise it is quite the blessing that I have!
....But, enough about me! Let's get to know you.
P.S. I just saved up and bought a new, fancy underwater housing for my camera.... which means I get to truly melt my two passions - photography and the water - together..... I'll keep you posted on the development of this fine romance!
