I LOVE HOME MOVIES

Aren’t home movies magical? When I was growing up my Dad recorded everything. Watching these old, silent moving images transports me back to my adventurous childhood. Now, just like my Dad, I like to make my own home movies – an online journal of sorts. They’re all up on my blog and my Vimeo feed if you’d like to take a peek.

I sometimes make some short films for clients too. If your project or business resonates with me and you want a short film made- just ask me!

From the moment we first spoke with Tracy she left us feeling relaxed and at ease for what is generally a pretty stressful process. Our first impression of Tracy was she is simply a genuine person. Genuinely lovely, positive, humorous and genuinely humble – and VERY good at what she does. And she volunteers too!! We're very grateful she was able to capture our story on our very special day in November 2020. Tracy's style is fun and fluid, but sneaky…She’s very good at getting great candid shots, and she was great at tricking us into posing without posing, we had no idea! She allowed us to feel at ease and worked hard to follow our brief - we wanted someone to capture all the unguarded, fun and candid moments, as well as get some obligatory formal group photos and above all we didn’t want to feel like we were being ordered around or made to feel stiff and formal. She absolutely nailed it. We went with Tracy's 5 hour package. We started with a first look – a really cool moment tucked away at the Arboretum, a moment for just us before the craziness of the ceremony got started. I was packing it, but Tracy was able to put me at ease. Following that, Tracy zipped around our backyard ceremony like a ninja! We barely knew she was there and she got some amazing shots as a result. Tracy was friendly and genuine throughout, and we would have loved for her to stick around after for a few drinks and a laugh! Our family and friends all think the photos are so good. Thank you for documenting our very special day Tracy. I hope these words sway someone sitting on the fence, it’s comforting knowing that I can whole heartedly put you forward as excellent. All the best, Nick & Sarah

Wow Wow, I couldn't have been happier with the experience from start to finish. I engaged Tracy for a branding shoot for my new App "Dhindi". Tracy is really easy, laid back but highly professional, she made me feel comfortable on the day even in bad weather. She loves what she does and it through in her final product (the images). I'm thrilled and I can't wait to use the images in my branding and marketing. Thanks Tracy and I'm happy to refer you over and over.

I love Tracy and her photography. She's my go-to photographer. Over several years, she has done my maternity photos, photos of my family and daughters birth/first year... my bellydance troupe AND my business. She is excellent at finding nice locations to suit, and taking a great shot that you'll forever cherish. She's also photographed several of my friends weddings, baby births and more, so I've seen the lot! It's always fun and carefree, natural and light. She's creative and great at directing you for a great pic. Couldn't recommend her enough! She is fab, you won't regret it.

My branding shoot with Tracy was fantastic. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and relaxed while making the whole process fun. She really listened to what I wanted and the gallery of images reflected this - I absolutely loved the all the images!

We used Tracy for some family photos. From the beginning she was warm, welcoming and professional. We are not at all practised in front of the camera and Tracy made it easy for us to have natural and beautiful photos taken. We are thrilled with our experience and the quality of the products. Tracy provided a personal and friendly service. I highly recommend her.

Tracey was the photographer for our wedding and she did an amazing job. Very professional and friendly. I can't recommend her enough, even if I'm not a big fan of the colour balance she uses (my wife is though)

Baby’s first year package offered exactly what I wanted. Tracy captures beautiful moments. I’ve already had so many of my mummy friends comment on the pictures and how they would love to have the same. It has become my "go to" baby shower present! I would recommend Tracy without hesitation because I am 100% confident that people will be happy with her work.

I recently had some Branding sessions with Tracy and I couldn't be happier with the results! The images far exceeded my expectations. Tracy does so much more than take great pictures, she really captured the essence of what I needed to portray. Her open and fun approach instantly put me at ease and I found the whole experience a joy. I will use these photos for many years to come and consider this exercise a real investment in my business. A true artist, filled with integrity, heart and phenomenal skill.
