Home Time


This body of photographs is created from images taken over the last decade of my daughters, Tess and Amy and some of our animal household.

I have been a part of their childhoods and fleeting moments as they grow and move through time.

This series reminds us that life is imaginative and magical; it is about the universal qualities of dignity, individuality and intimacy.
It is also about the shifting light of nostalgia, maternal curiosity and memories, life constantly coming into being, changing and ceasing to be.

This is a work in progress as they, and I too, am a work in progress.
