I'm Maggie and I live in beautiful Adelaide with my husband and our three dogs.
I'm mum and stepmum of three grown up boys (well, they're men, but they'll always be boys to us!), and step-gran to four gorgeous grandies.
I migrated from Scotland in the dying days of the last century, and with all the personal changes I've seen, I know how precious it is to be able to look back at photos to remember where you've been, and also who you were.
Life moves so fast - we change on the inside as well as the outside, and we lose the memories of those feelings if we can't anchor them somehow, and photographs are (along with music and smells) the best anchors around.
I can't play a musical instrument for you (although I'll sing you a song at the drop of a hat), and I can't reconstruct your favourite aromas, but I'd be honoured to help you gather your treasure of visual memories, whether that's family, friends, events or a new human who's turned your life upside down (in the nicest possible way, of course).
Growing up, I always had a passion for photography. I loved the way that seemingly mundane moments could be captured and transformed into true beauty.
As a child, I'd pore over photojournalism magazines, fascinated by the details of people's lives captured on the page.
In my 20's I picked up an SLR camera for the first time. Film was king and processing was too expensive for a student, so I put the camera down for a moment, and then life happened!
Career, marriage, a child, migrating from Scotland, divorce, meeting and marrying my lovely Steven (14 years and counting) and a side career in comedy and theatre that brought great friends, travel, and a few awards and nominations for theatre, writing and comedy. Lately, I've been working off-stage, directing Adelaide Fringe shows.
When I picked the camera up again it felt like coming home.
As a portrait, family and lifestyle photographer nothing matches that feeling of capturing and celebrating the everyday magic - the love and beauty in our world - through our families, friends, and favourite places.
I hope you'll let me do that for you.
