My name is Chris and I am a portrait photographer specializing in newborns, children and maternity. I live in Kyogle, Northern Rivers, Australia.
I couldn’t be happier with the decisions I have made in changing careers. I was a registered nurse. Its important to chase your dreams and do what you love. Sometimes we must take small jumps to make the final leap.
 Life isn’t about remembering days but about remembering moments.
Being  a mum   I know how quickly our children grow up and eventually leave the nest.
I want  to give families the opportunity to get that expensive portrait at a reachable price. 
I look forward to capturing those special memories that you can hold onto forever.


I attended photography classes at Northern Rivers Community College in NSW

Also the National Geographic photography workshop in Santa Fe, USA

Under the guidance of renowned photography instructors Joe McNally
