FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CONCEPT // WHERE DID THE NAME 'LONEOGRAPHY' COME FROM?
LONE, is my acronym for Life ON Earth. "Graphy" is, by definition from the very trusted internet source that is wikipedia, an english suffix which is used to denote an art or field of study. Loneography is "the art of living life on earth". I came up with the concept of "Lonegraphy" (pronounced 'loan-ography') a few years ago when I was looking through the portfolio of the very talented Nick Brandt. I found myself inspired by his "On this Earth" portfolio, capturing the innocence of wild animals roaming free in the wild. In mid 2013, I decided to take the plunge and commit to develop Loneography into a blog that would reflect my own passions. Food, family and travel. Over the years the blog slowly gained more followers and has now grown in to a small business.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
I feel that taking photos is almost instinct. My candid/editorial style of photography allows me to capture the moments unseen by others. The moments that go unnoticed but demonstrate the most innocent and honest emotion. I want to capture you at your most natural state, therefore, when it comes to portrait time, I have a pretty relaxed approach, which means no awkward smiles or poses.
My Portrait shoots for newborn/babies takes place in the comfort of your own home. It is just me and your family so it is very relaxed and comfortable.
WHAT SORT OF WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT? AND DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
I am a sucker for DIY/backyard weddings, however, I shoot all types of weddings. From big to small, city to sea! Nothing more beautiful than capturing the love shared between two people. (So long as my style of photography is appealing to you)
Do I travel? Hell yeah! I LOVE to travel! No wedding is too far for me!
