Be the change you want to see in the world
You may be aware of my association with Zonta International and my passion for equality. As such, being involved in many women lead events this year has been a major high.
Early in the year, Carla Beth Anderson made a request via Freelance Jungle an online community on Facebook. Carla was writing a blog on women helping women for International Women’s Day.
She picked my story assisting women returning to work on low incomes or survivors of DV as we offer a free profile shoot once a month to assist in this endeavour. Still on offer by the way…
Carla’s article included Jade and Allana, the fabulous founders of FemEconomy. Our association with FemeEconomy lead us to photograph the Women to Watch Awards, brought to Sydney by Kelly Stickle, CEO Remodista in April.
This was an awesome opportunity to meet amazing women like Kristy Chong, CEO and creator of Modibodi™. A brilliant new feminine hygiene product to do away with environmentally unfriendly tampons and pad. Unsurprisingly, I love ModiBodi their vision and commitment to the empowerment of women at home and around the world.

In July we launched our official Instagram page. Our TopDog competition brought a mix of joy and sadness. Through the competition, I met our winners Ruby and Alex. Alex was in hospital, busy blogging whilst fighting ovarian cancer.
Unfortunately, in September 27-year-old Alex lost her fight. It has been deeply saddening. Alex was well loved and admired. She was brave sharing her story. Instead of prizes won, Alex requested we make a donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, I’ve done so in her name.
Toward the end of the year, we were the official photographers for the Women in Leadership Summit 2017, the brainchild of Dana Lightbody, CEO of Konnect Learning. Being a part of this event was amazing. The team at Konnect were so committed and beautiful to work with. The theme sitting perfectly with our vision to support initiatives dedicated to social equity and justice.
people throughout the year. I thank you personally for
being a part of my world.
a joyful Christmas and prosperous New Year.
