Good Life Portraits

The Photographer/owner

Are you ready to hear every cliche' under the sun? It's hard for me to explain why I love what we do without sounding like some soap opera TV show you can watch around 11am every morning. But I mean it. I simply love people. I am so grateful for all the people I meet and who share their story with me.

 

After working in the photography industry for over 10 years I decided it was time to go on my own adventure. It has always been a deep seeded goal of mine to one day have a studio of my own, but not just any studio a place that just felt like home to anyone and everyone that set foot through those doors. Going through a few years of personal struggles after losing a friend and a family member It really lit a fire in my belly to get started in what I think has always been my purpose. I realised how important those memories and photos are of my loved ones, more so, I wanted to create something for families that I knew would become something overtime and one of there most cherished and precious items.

 

So Good Life Portraits was created! A space where clients can come and create, and celebrate their life as they wish to see it. We are also selfish in a way because we live vicariously through our client's experiences. Having heard their stories their struggles their success, we get to understand our selves better.

To be honest I didn’t always know I wanted to be a photographer, like every child I wanted to be a princess, own a coffee van or be a marine biologist, pretty much anything you can think of. Suddenly at the age of 9 my life did a full 180 when my mum was diagnosed with cancer. This made me realise time is not guaranteed and I began my journey with photography.

It was my way of ‘stopping time’.

I was taking photos of anything and everything every day when I realised, I can do this or others and be able to capture life and emotions, form a newborn baby’s few for days in this world, a family connection and bond or being able to show someone’s beauty and change their perceptive of themselves is a honour.

When I’m not learning photography or behind the camera you will find me in a beer garden enjoying the sun or adventuring South Australia. I just love to be surrounded by good vibes, genuine people and lots food

How did I know I wanted to be a photographer? Easy. The look and emotion that people show when looking back at old photos and the memories that they bring up.

 

I’ve always been creative but I’m not the type who can draw or paint what they see. Photography allows me to show a persons real character and create something personal and unique for everyone.

 

Today I still have a lot to learn, but I embrace and work through every challenge that comes my way. It allows me to grow and expand my passion and career in photography.

As a kid, I was fascinated by this big
picture on the wall of our living room. It was taken by a famous French
photographer called Robert Doisneau and the picture was named ‘A musician in the Rain.’ Since then, I’ve always seen photography as visual poetry. It gives one quick moment the opportunity to tell a story and live forever.

So when I talk to you on the phone, I want to know about you so we can tell YOUR story and let it live in your home and be seen by your future generations. Whether it’s for a family portrait, or just for yourself. I want to know the values you share with your loved ones, the battles you're fighting, your passions, and what makes you smile. I want to remind you that you deserve to be proud of what you have and who you are.

Oh, and why do I do weddings? Because I’m a hopeless romantic and I’m obsessed with wedding dresses! Hearing you tell me how your significant other makes you so happy will help me keep my standards nice and high until the day I too get a ring on my finger!

P.S: You’ll
definitely see me cry on your big day :)
