Behind The Lens

Hello!!  My name is Ivy!  Firstly, thank you so much for getting this far :)  I am sincerely grateful that you are interested in what I do.  Equipped with the creative passion to capture the goodness of life through my eyes, I love to meet new people and being a part of a very special time in their lives.

Ultimately, my aim is to create beautiful images that will stir emotions and Capture beautiful Moments.

Little Things About Me

Auckland born and bred, happily married to my Wellingtonian Dan and mammi to our two heartbeats, Bethany + Zemira.  I get super excited hearing someone's desire to do better. I love spontaneity. I love surprises. I love to laugh. I have a huge laugh. I'd like to think that it is an appreciative laugh.  I also run an Event Design + Styling business - Confetti Love Boutique.  I love hammocks.  I love serving my community.  Spring is my favourite season - A season of new beginnings.  I love bucket lists. I love life. I love God. I love DIY projects.  I love movies. I think Emma Stone is super funny + quirky. I love Diane Keaton. I love a good book even though Iā€™m in the middle of about five books right now. I love freshly brewed milky teas.  Lasty, I love individuality and style. 

Style of photography

My style of photography is relaxed, fun and romantic with a touch of fine art feels.  I aim to capture your relationship in a beautiful and sentimental way.  One that will evoke emotions that will stir in your heart for years to come.  My style has developed into what I feel reflects my passion for what I do and who I work with.  One of the greatest achievements for me is to capture others in a way they had never seen themselves before - their beauty, spirit and life.

I will coach you into feeling relaxed in front of the camera, and I guarantee there will be a lot of laughing going on.  At the end of the day, you will feel relaxed and that our photo session was actually quite fun for everyone.
