I’m Loren, a Hawke’s Bay housewife whose passion, sadly for my family, lies behind a camera and not the kitchen! We live a gorgeously quiet lifestyle in Patoka, farming sheep and beef.

I enjoy working with people in our relaxed country setting here at Emerald Hill farm. I create painterly heirloom portraits for you, and your generations to come. This is what inspires the time and learning it takes for detailed, beautiful craft, - from capture to print.
