Behind the Lens

Hello, I'm Jess

I'm so excited that your search for a photographer has led you to me.

I am a wife and a first time mum to a beautiful baby girl. I love roast dinners and playing card games with my family. I bought my first 'real' camera in 2018 to capture epic memories of my travels with my husband while we lived in London.

Before I transitioned into photography, I was a primary school teacher. One of my favourite parts of teaching was always looking back over the children's writing throughout the year and seeing how much they'd grown. To me, photographs are like a piece of writing. They capture you as you are at a single moment in time. They show the how we all grow and change with the passage of time. And they can be held onto and returned to for years to come.

These days we all have thousands of photos on our phones, but my most treasured photographs make my memories come alive and transport me back to moments otherwise lost to time; like fishing off the back verandah with my dad in nothing but gumboots and undies during a flood. In the years to come I want you and your loved ones to be able to share in the nostalgia that comes from looking back on your favourite photographs.

I would be honoured to be your photographer and to capture you and your loved ones in a way that is relaxed, authentic and meaningful.
