I have been missing in action I know! Since starting my full-time Midwifery degree with Griffith University my life has been turned upside down and then right side back up again! It’s been a crazy, intense, challenging and fulfilling year. And I’m happy to have almost made it out the other side of first year, just a few clinical shifts at Gold Coast University Hospital to go!

Every time I have the honour of being called to birth, whether it’s as a photographer or student midwife I am reminded how breathtaking the birth process is. It never ceases to amaze me how perfectly mother and baby work together to bring baby earthside. These images taken from a birth I photographed earlier this year remind me why I am doing what I am doing, and that I am on the right path! I will make it through this degree!!

Now that I’ll have two months away from university I will also be taking some time away from photography so that I can finally spend some much needed quality time with my beautiful, supportive and very understanding family who have been waiting ever so (im)patiently for me to finish this year!

I’d like to thank my beautiful clients too who have had to put up with me throughout the year as I’ve juggled being a full-time student, photographer and mother. I know it hasn’t been easy for any of us! So thank you!! I will endeavour to update my website over the coming months to feature all your beautiful sessions I’ve photographed this year.

If you’re interested in following me on my journey to becoming a midwife you can find me here!
