HI, I’M STEPH!
A lot of people have asked me why I love photography, and to be perfectly honest with you, it’s not so much about the photography, it’s about finding the love and connection that occurs between people. I love people first and foremost and children are especially wonderous and lovely.
I am a mother and wife and live in a small community on the outskirts of Canberra, in a village called Uriarra.
A morning can never go by without first drinking the elixir of life, coffee. A drive at sunset can never go by without needing to pull over at some point to take a photo. An attempt at parallel parking will never happen, nor will I attempt the most basic of maths without a trusty calculator.
There are numerous things I am terrible at, but I am very good at capturing stunning images, particularly ones that truly capture the love and connection between you and your family. And I am also very good at understanding and relating to people, but especially children. I am fun, vibrant and full of energy and life and my biggest aim in capturing families is to really get the love and connection that is shared between people.
I have experienced a range of different photographic niches, weddings, fashion photography, events, corporate and general portraiture. But what I enjoy and find the most rewarding is spending time with a family, getting to know them and capturing their personalities and the love they have for each other.
I am also a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) which is a super fun community to be a part of.
Capturing love and connection
I love to have a family slow down and spend an hour ignoring everything else in their life that is going on and just be there in the moment, loving and appreciating on their family. I love to capture that connection and love for them.
My style is very candid and natural, capturing what I see in front of me, but to make you feel comfortable, I will give you some direction and posing advice with the aim to bring out the best in you and your photographs. Every session is fun and relaxed so this will come across in your images! If you would like to book a session or have questions, contact me now!
