About me

Ever since I can remember, I have loved taking photos. When I was ten years old, I recall going to the local newsagency with my mum and seeing one of Anne Geddes calendars with the cutest babies in flower pots. I thought that this was the most amazing idea and have followed her work ever since.

Life got busy and I put aside my dreams of being a photographer. This was of course until I had my first son in 2011 and my love for photography came racing back up to the surface. With the loving support of my husband and my family, I have had many opportunities since then to further my skills and purchase many pieces of professional equipment including my favourite item, my Nikon D750. Before this I had a Nikon D90 which I absolutely loved and this shows my loyalty to a superior, market leading brand.

My business name (CMZ Photography) represents my three sons; Colter, Magnus and Zephyr. With these three beautiful boys as my muse, I have fallen in love with newborn photography. There is nothing more exciting to me than capturing those first few weeks of a babies life where everything is so new. Whether it be a kiss from Mummy, or being curled up in Daddy's arms. There are so many moments that you will want to cherish forever.

Babies grow up so quickly and every stage of their growth is worth recording. The best times in the first year of a childs life for photos are Newborn, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months old. I also love capturing family photos, so whatever stages your child and their siblings  are at (teeth taken by the tooth fairy, bruises on their chinsl) nothing is worth missing those yearly updates of your family photos.

Life is so precious and every day is a gift, so why not have some amazing images that you can cherish forever. In a time where we rely so much on our phones to record the big moments, I believe it has never been so important to have high quality images that you can enlarge and frame for your lounge room wall, or give a canvas as a beautiful and personal gift. My aim is to record these moments in time for my beautiful clients as often as they will allow me. I hope that you enjoyed getting to know me and my story, and I look forward capturing your precious moments soon.
