 Treasured Pictures: Capturing the essence of childhood

Hi, welcome to Treasured Pictures, where moments of childhood magic come to life through the lens. As an award-winning child photographer, I am passionate about preserving the authentic and emotive moments that define childhood.

Authenticity in Every Frame

Whether it's a candid moment captured in natural light or a carefully composed portrait, each photograph is a testament to the genuine joy, wonder, and innocence of childhood. I love capturing genuine expression & gesture -  hands, for instance, are so expressive! I believe in the power of storytelling, sometimes with the use of simple & quirky props, and I strive to create photographs that evoke emotion and nostalgia for years to come. My passion is black & white photography & ageless, vintage inspired color, often embracing a pastel palette or deepening the blacks in the image to create a dramatic, painterly contrast.

Celebrating Milestones

From the first steps to the toothless smiles, pristine white communion dresses & grass stained knees, every milestone is a heartfelt memory waiting to be captured. Over the years, I have had the honor of receiving recognition for my work in international competitions, including first, second, and third place awards in the Lifestyle category of the International Child Photo Competition, best of black & white child photography.

Beyond the Awards

While accolades are a testament to dedication and skills learned along the way, & the inevitable highs & lows of learning a creative craft, what truly matters is the connection forged with each family I have the privilege of photographing. It's about capturing the essence of childhood with a keen eye for detail—the laughter, the curiosity, the boundless imagination, and sometimes even the moody & downright challenging—in a way that feels honest and timeless.

Join Me on this Journey

I invite you to explore the galleries and discover the stories behind each treasured picture. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family's journey and for entrusting me with capturing these very special childhood moments.
