Hi there, i’m Bec!
I’m a mumma to three little ones, 6, 4 and 2 and in between the crazy fun juggle of being a mumma, I work as a photographer. I have an amazing husband who is also self-employed so we both work from home together on the Gold Coast in QLD Australia. We love it here and you will often find us down at the beach, up in the mountains or tapping away on our keyboards at one of the local cafes.
I’m a bit of a documenting junkie and love taking photos as you may have guessed. I have never felt very confident or creative at stringing words together so having a camera in hand has been an amazing way to capture and preserve my family story.
Prior to having my own children, I was a social worker and worked in Child Protection. I have amazing parents who opened our home to foster children when I was growing up so it was a super natural progression and something I always felt drawn to, to do work helping people in some capacity.
During the years I worked in child protection, I facilitated a lot of family contacts between children and their biological families. Often it was weeks, months or years between visits and I longed for a way to document these stories in a more heartfelt way to give these children something tangible to hold on to from their childhood. I started taking my camera along to these sessions and would photograph these families together and create prints and photo books for the children. Thus begun my love of documenting peoples stories and the realisation of how powerful an image can be in preserving a moment in time! I now run a project called Frames of Hope that is all about documenting these untold stories of hope, resilience and strength.
