Life can go by so quickly, but portraits are a great way to slow down and take a moment to capture the beauty of people through the lens. Whether it’s celebrating the emotion and cheekiness that lies within children, capturing your teenager before they move into adulthood or creating a lasting memory of your family to keep – my passion is to capture life through portrait photography.

As a portrait photographer I can come to you at a location of your choice, or I have a unique native garden studio available. This is one acre of Australian gardens with winding paths, beautiful trees, plenty of grass and secret hiding places for kids to explore, which makes for fabulous photos. This can be a great backdrop to your photography portraits.

I would love to discuss possibilities for your portraits so please contact me, or check out my portfolio to see a sample of my work.

I’m a Geelong photographer with the teen photography experience to make the session a fun and enjoyable one for them. To me, teenager portraits are all...
