A Bit About Me ….

Really, this is about you, not me, but I get that you want to know who will be hanging with you during some of your most intimate moments, so let me give you the low-down …

A Bit About Me ….


So my name is Sharon I take photographs for a living. It’s pretty special and I love it.

As a professional photographer I’ve worked on an assortment of projects in wedding, portrait, commercial and art photography but as I’m a romantic at heart documenting weddings has become my obsession. I love working with people in love!

I genuinely get excited about exploring the connections between people. I love all those real moments but I also want you end up with timeless portraits that you can be proud to hang on your wall and pass down through the generations. I’m all about the print. When we chat more you’ll find out how passionate I am about printed photography. I mix the real moments with relaxed posed portraits. I am a softie for a romantic tale. I come from a long line of Irish storytellers, so retelling a story is in my blood. Being visual means I choose to retell your story through beautiful, honest imagery.

I am based in the picturesque foothills of The Macedon Ranges – about 50km North-West of Melbourne – where I live with my pretty god-damn amazing mountain man husband and mini me children. Lets hook up for a cuppa so I can get to know you and you can get to know me a little more. I’ve told you way more than I had intended but, like I said, this isn’t about me. Let’s chat so I can find out a little bit about you …..
