Meet Ally

I’m a mum of four gorgeous and energetic boys. I’ve lived in Goulburn almost my entire life and I believe it has so much to offer, especially to families with young children.

My professional background is as a Chartered Accountant (so very different to photography!). Although I have often described myself as a creative person.

My photography journey restarted essentially because I was really wanting to capture my children’s childhood in a way that was beautiful and that would want me to print out those images and not just have a series of snapshots trapped on my iPhone.

I discovered that I love taking beautiful images of children and their families, that really capture who they are and what they love in that moment. My favourite images are always those that are breathtaking in their simplicity.

I have a special love of newborn photography and have studied with Australian award winning photographer Kelly Brown at a workshop in Sydney. My newborn style is simple and baby focused. I have also studied baby safety and will always put the safety and comfort of the babies and mums I work with first.

I also have a lifetime love of learning new things and photography fits in so well with that – there are always news things to learn and discover.

Aside from photography I love exercising and can often be seen sneaking away from my day job to hit the road for a run and some fresh air to clear my mind. Our home is often noisy and chaotic and exercising and running are often the perfect antidote for that.

I tell my boys on a daily basis that the world is their’s to conquer and I really thought it was time I showed them that I truly believe that. Life really is short and we should all find some time to do the things we love and that bring us joy.
