Who is Flossy?
Documenter, reader, daydreamer, mother, flower keeper, animal lover, music worshipper, photographer.
I grew up as one of three in the coastal town of Albany, Western Australia. We kicked around on bikes after school and climbed sand hills on blocks where houses yet to be built. We lined up fruit along quiet streets with the neighbourhood kids to watch cars run over them and send them spinning in the wheels, which was definitely the naughtiest thing we could EVER imagine doing. We would laugh and run as fast as our skinny legs could take us. When it got dark, we would venture back out, lighting our torches and playing spotlight on fresh, moonlit nights with only the sounds of cracking branches and stifled laughing floating in the frostbitten air.
Our stories and memories are integral to the fabric of our lives and relationships. I’m intensely drawn to the art of memory keeping. As an observer and a friend, documenting stories for people is a profoundly rewarding experience, and so nourishing for me creatively.
I am still as deeply passionate about the art of photography as I was back in the very early days – arms deep in chemicals, bathed in red in the darkroom at Albany Senior High School. I have never stopped wanting to adapt my craft, and I still have the same butterflies every time I get an opportunity to create.
I take a relaxed, photojournalistic approach, focusing on detailing the connections, chemistry and emotion that weave through a wedding day to capture often understated moments that are in fact, profound. I love to collaborate on ideas and work together with my clients to create meaningful images. And I seriously love a party.
I always thought I’d be a photojournalist. I’m drawn to the real, visually capturing a story to retell later. Wedding days are so full of story. This is what I strive to bring back for you with unbridled excitement.
