Hey, I’m Aimee. 

I like funny, creative people, crime dramas and twisty sci-fi, copious amounts of chocolate and New Zealand wines; not necessarily in that order.  I also like snuggling ALL the babies and hanging out with fun, stylish people who don’t take themselves too seriously. 

So much so that I built a business around it. 

I’m a lifestyle photographer, but what I’m really known for is my ability to tell authentic stories with playful images of family life and love.  My clients choose me because they desire a beautiful, natural, real account of their family’s story. 

My brand is hinged on my unwavering belief in the power of storytelling.  I studied psychology and filmmaking and spent a decade in broadcast marketing, which tells you two things, 1) I’m slightly crackers and 2) the narrative matters to me.  Added to which I have Native American Indian heritage (I know, the blond hair is a dead giveaway) so there’s a chance that the tradition of storytelling is really bone deep for me. 

At any rate I believe that stories, well told, have the power to preserve, to empower, to heal and to connect.  And what’s more, I believe that real stories beat “perfect” ones every damn day of the week.

I love working with relaxed creative people who appreciate the beauty of authentic storytelling.  You’ll know that’s you if you’re more comfortable in Cute Casual than Sunday Best and you feel as at home travelling with your family as you do curling up with Netflix and a big ol’ glass of wine.

Worried your kids might not “perform” on the day?  Don’t sweat it.  I have two gorgeous, messy firecrackers of my own.  Believe me I KNOW what that’s like!  And here’s the thing: I have no expectations of your kids.  All I want is for you to show up and be you.  And in return I’ll show you just how beautiful that is.

I’m a storytelling lifestyle photographer.  Let me tell your family’s story.
