Why I do this.
I am fascinated by the relationships we have with our loved ones, how they change & evolve over time, what they teach us about ourselves, and the value they have when reflecting on them years later.
Some of my favourite people to film are newborns and young children as this is such a short & uninhibited period in life. These little people express exactly how they feel and what they are thinking (for better or worse). They are learning to understand their world through mimicking us and observing their surroundings while we in turn learn so much through them.
Being able to film these relationships and moments in a familiar & relaxed environment is a wonderful gift I love being able to give back to families.
More of the “Why”…
A few years ago I made a short personal documentary which included bits of VHS-C home footage, much of which I hadn’t seen before. I have to say, there is something truly special about going back in time and revisiting our old blue home, hearing the voices of the younger version of mom & dad, seeing pets that have long since passed away, and trips that my memory fails to remember. Unfortunately there aren’t any clips that include our entire family.

My family photography & film values.
I enjoy finding creative ways of showing those moments that move you & speak to you.
The best moments can often be the ones that are unplanned & unposed; that can be filled with energy or stillness.
I’m always looking for ways to improve my technical & creative skills so I can tell your story in a more beautiful and meaningful way.
Let’s see. I was born in South Korea, raised in Michigan and currently living in Ireland with my husband. If there is open water nearby, I’ll probably be in it (most likely trying to avoid jellies…). If I’m not in the water then I like to spend time in the mountains/hills or traipsing around anywhere really…
Unfortunately we don’t have a dog yet so in the meantime this guy gets loads of my rubs whenever I get a chance.
So, that’s a little bit about me. I would love to get to know you as well so let’s connect over on IG or drop a note with any questions/comments you may have. Looking forward to hearing from you!
