Hello! Welcome! Bienvenido!
I am Chrissie, wife, mother of three, sister, daughter and friend. I enjoy a secret love affair with coffee and occasionally will trade it in for wine!
We moved to Moss Vale in the Southern Highlands, NSW, 9 years ago from the suburbs of London; a young and naive couple, who thought we would be here for just 4 years on a business visa. Two dogs, three children, a cat and house later, we have made the highlands our home.
I come from a background of working in the early years sector. My experience as a nanny has graced me with the wonderful experience of caring for newborns and their siblings in a family environment. Working in playgroups has developed my inner child through singing, dancing and play led activities. The experiences of working in and managing daycare centres has given me an insight into the extensive range of both family, child and parent needs. Becoming a mother was possibly the biggest achievement I have accomplished so far. Along with my best friend we stumbled through the ever changing needs of our children and growing family.
I love to take photos and have had a camera in my hand since I was 10 years old. My journey in to the professional photography world began when I started my own family. I wanted to make sure I had memories of my swollen belly and the love between my hubby and I at that moment in time. I wanted to be able to remember just how tiny and beautiful that little bundle of joy was that we brought home from the hospital. I wanted to be present in the photos for my children to remember the fun we have together. As mothers we are consumed with the daily routines and often snap away photos of our children on our phones, but where are we? Let me use my experience of working with and caring for babies and young children to wrangle yours! Let me quietly and respectfully capture your family's memories for you to treasure always. I would love to start your journey with you from the union of two people in love to their growing brood and document your family's journey through life. I look forward to hearing from you and having the privilege of photographing your family.
