Give Gift Certificates for Mother’s Day!

Give a Gift Certificate

A gift for Mum

Mum, because of you, I know kindness.

‘Twas her thinking of others,

 made you think of her.

Mother's Day

Mums.  Givers of life and so much more.  Mother’s Day is your Mum’s day to be celebrated for just what she means to you.  Her boundless love and support.  It’s a chance for us to share the love! On her special day, give a Gift Certificate towards a photo session or beautiful artwork – photographs are a gift she’ll treasure forever.  She can be in them, or not…

The introduction of our beautifully presented fine art Gift Certificates could not have come at a better time.  Give Mum a Gift Certificate for Mother’s Day, and she will thank you every time she looks at her beautiful photographs.

Most Mums typically shy away from being infront of the camera (or iPhone !!), preferring to let others be in the limelight.  What if I told you I could have Mum relishing every fun-loving second of being photographed?

I could make her feel at ease and confident infront of my camera?

She can have the most beautiful photograph of herself or her family that she’s ever experienced?  All the while being pampered and indulged, and then holding exquisite fine art portraits in her hands.  Portraits that those hands will eventually pass down the generations.  To her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren.

Mother Mum

Such is the power of the printed photograph.  Your images will travel farther than you think.

And Mums, what a wonderful legacy those photos will be to have in your family.  One day your children will look for them.

Gift Certificates Immediately Downloadable to Use As She Likes

SQP Gift Certificates start from $100, and besides being gorgeous in & of themselves, they’re just the spark to get the ball rolling and celebrate Mum in images.

You can join with others, and combine several gift vouchers for her to get her started, or build on, or gift a full ultimate package.  There are options to suit everyone.  All Gift Certificates look beautiful and are available to immediately download, but if ordered ahead of time, a beautifully packaged Gift Certificate that hints at the wonderful experience and photos to come will be snail-mailed.

Gift Certificates are valid for use within the coming 12 months from date of purchase, so there’s no pressure for Mum to decide on when to be photographed right away.  That adds to the excitement of receiving such a wonderful Gift Certificate towards both a photo session experience and luxe printed photographic products available only to professional photographers.  There are also no limits on the type of session and products available with a Gift Certificate – you are free to choose what you absolutely love!  She may want to be photographed a la ‘Portrait of A Lady’  in studio, or with others – like her own Mum, her children, or grandchildren. Her girlfriends.  And present her photos in a beautiful wall portrait, album, or Folio Box.

So what are you waiting for?  Give Gift Certificates for Mother’s Day. Let Mum know how loved she truly is.  Motherhood at every stage and in every guise, is something to celebrate!

Mini Photography Sessions for the Kids

Professional photos of your kids.

family photography

Have you ever wanted to entrust capturing your kids’ photographs to a professional photographer – but just never got around to it? Whether you’d really just love to have some pics that are higher res than your phone, or in fact have some beautiful images that you can print & actually hold, & can look at & enjoy for years to come, a mini photography session may be just what you want!

Consider a kids’ portrait mini photo session as a way to ‘dip your toes in the water’ & try out a professional photography session. If you have never experienced a full session of contemporary photography, or if you need the perfect way to regularly update your photos of those fast growing cherubs perhaps try a mini photo session !

Kids’ pics are one type of portraiture that we can’t put off til later.  Those fast growing limbs are not going to wait for us!  You only have to look back at their school photos to see that!

Mini sessions are fast, affordable, & you will have at least 3 images from your mini session.  Images that are professionally taken, styled, edited & can be archivally printed as stunning photographs at a professional lab for you.  Images that you will hold in your hands for ever.  Not only ever existing on usb, computer, or devices!  Your images can actually be photographs.


Branding and Headshots – The Resumé Originated 5 Centuries Ago – But Times Are A Changing…

Personal Branding for Resumé & C.V.

Leonardo Da Vinci is accredited with the origin of the resumé.  And in this era of immediate visual communication, social media, & web presence, your C.V. is as crucial as ever. An engaging C.V. is your number one priority to make an impression and stand out in the job market.

Branding and Headshot Photographs

Professional branding and headshot photography is your key to success.  Online engagement demands professional images.

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.

They went out and happened to things.”         

                                                                                                   Leonardo Da Vinci

According to Forbes Magazine, times have changed in even the most recent past, and so too should your C.V.

Selling your personal brand.

Approaching your C.V. like a marketing document and selling your ‘personal brand’ is what it’s all about.

Your image, and how it represents your personal brand is as valuable in marketing yourself, as it is in business.

Including a professional photograph on your resumé adds value, and should give prospective employers or recruitment agents an accurate idea of who you are, how you want to be perceived, and what the experience of working with you might be like.

Sound like a big ask from a photograph?

With a Masters in Business Communications and as an accredited professional photographer, helping with personal branding, reviewing C.V’s, writing content, and styling & creating professional images that convey your ‘personal brand’, as Forbes put it, is the perfect fit for me.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with this motivated client yesterday, to create her professional images for her C.V.

I can’t wait to hear how she sets about ‘making things happen’ for herself.  What an asset to any office and business this woman is – the warmth, connection, professionalism, and approachability she exudes is the real deal!

Fine Art Photography + Photos + Beeswax + Pigment = AMAZING!!!

Photographic Fine Art Originals and Prints

If you love colour & texture, & love the tactile nature of printed photographic images, then I think you’re going to just l-o-v-e my fine art works.  Originals and fine art prints available to buy.

A melding of ancient & modern techniques, I encapsulate my images in a beeswax-based medium originating from ancient Egypt & Greece.

back encaustic Magazine Cover (Back) 2




I use paints, inks & collage to fuse my photographs in a beautiful patina.  Each piece is created from unique treatments, techniques, &  the outcome is unable to be fully managed or controlled.  Just like original film photography & image developing. You never know just how a work will turn out. Instinctive, inspired, spontaneous, richly layered,  & ethereal.   Fine Art.

Each part of my creativity and life as a photographer and an artist seems to meld when I work in these mediums. Photography & Fine Art together forming something purely original.

For Lovers of Interior Design

I’ve collated photographs of my artworks into a magazine, here, for you to enjoy – there’s something for everyone – portraits, landscape, interiors, abstracts.  Take a look.  If you see an art work that you would love to make your own, please get in touch.  

fine art original

As lavishly as the art pieces photograph, actually touching the gorgeous beeswax patina & looking into the multi-layers of mediums in each piece is truly, truly beautiful.

And just imagine having your contemporary portraits, a more conceptual arty portrait, or a decorative piece featuring something meaningful to you, as your own bespoke original art work.  My photographic images work beautifully when handcrafted into 3 dimensional original one-of-a-kind art works…. Can you tell this is my absolute ideal  creative medium to play with!  A combo of my 2 creative passions!  Originals and fine art prints available to make your own.
