Website Branding – A Celebrant’s Stylish & Professional Approach to Her Business Captured in Images.

Branding and Headshots for your website are crucial.

No images of you on your business website?  Not sure how to align your images to your brand?  How to confidently engage with the camera to truly reflect you & your brand?  SQP offers branding and headshots for your professional profile and business.

A Personal Branding Session helps you define your brand and then capture amazing images to tell your audience just what you stand for.  Your online images are often the first impression someone gets of your business, and never before have they been more crucial to your brand and growing your business.

Starting with “WHY you do what you do?” & communicating what sets you apart, is how this Personal Branding Session began – and all before the camera even appeared!  I help with the visuals and the written copy and content.

Photographs and written content for your business.

After bidding on the photo session at a charity auction to raise funds for the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation, Vicki, a celebrant, decided to invest in her business, Victoria’s Ceremonies, and have some professional photos taken for her marketing and website.  This warm & engaging woman brought so much fun, creativity, and style to her shoot.

After designing the shoot to capture just how Vicki wanted her business and personal branding to be perceived, and a little insider coaching on how to engage with the camera, – I think you’ll agree with me that she simply exudes style, grace, poise, & professionalism – all wrapped up in warm-hearted fun!  Whether marriage, or naming ceremony, Vicki’s got this, & you’re just going to love how she presents, and how very relaxed she makes you feel.  

I’m so looking forward to sharing all of Vicki’s images with her, & seeing how they elevate her website.

Thank you for such a great session full of fun Vicki, and for entrusting the capture of your images to me.

Professional Maternity Photography Session

Serenity & Contentedness. A beautiful mumma-to-be in relaxed repose during her maternity photography session on the Gold Coast.

Enveloped in warm water, this beautiful, soon-to-be mum made such an angelic, elegant, & gorgeous subject.  This was a maternity photography session with a difference!

Water Pool

Our mum-to-be was lying in a shallow pool of warm water so that her hair and gown flowed gently around her.

For this creative photo session I hand-painted softly coloured backdrops; made fresh flower floral headdresses; & wrapped my client in swaths of beautiful textiles.

Afterwards the fun continued when we made a pregnant belly cast with Suzie of The Art Garage – you can experience her amazing paintings on The Art Garage Facebook page.

A sweet belly cast was made with both mum & dad-to-be’s hands encased in plaster on the baby belly.  Suzie created a natural plaster belly cast like a gorgeous organic cocoon. And I can’t wait to photograph the newborn baby nestled inside!

A relaxed-paced afternoon of cuppas, rosé for the dad-to-be, a warm pool, flowers, & so much precious beauty!

Thank you to lovely Elissa & Dan for sharing your precious milestone, & for enveloping us all in your calm, blissful, up-for-anything manner!

I’m really looking forward to sharing some more images from this beautiful unique session.

High School Formal Photo Shoot

High School Formal Photography at Your Home

Celebrate and capture this milestone for your high school graduate with a professional high school formal photo shoot at your home – before you leave for the arrivals!

Until you’ve experienced a high school formal and all the preparations and excitement involved on the day, you probably can’t fully appreciate the convenience of a photo session at your home.  Instead of lining up with hundreds of others for stock standard photos once you get to the event venue, I come to you!

Callum celebrated his Year 12 Formal with beautiful partner, Annelise.  And it was loads of fun doing a high school formal photo shoot for them at their place prior to them heading off to the pre-formal gathering.

Such a relaxed, fun afternoon capturing these two, & their families, in all their finery – completely cool, calm, collected, & looking forward to a great evening.

And before the end of the evening they received a text containing their very own app gallery of their images to save to their phones and other devices, and to post and share.

Packages available.

High School Formal Photo Shoot – Celebration Time!

Your Unique Portrait Experience

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.

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.

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.

Big Family Photography Session – All Together Now!

Extended Family Outdoor Photo Shoot 

Gorgeous extended family photography session on the Gold Coast – walks through the bamboo forest, frisbee on the lawn, meanderings through the garden paths, see-saws & swings.  Oh, & a few images taken in-between!

Three beautiful sisters re-united.  Parents, grandparents, partners, siblings, kiddies, & bubs-to-be!  A fun celebration of family where the newest granddaughter was welcomed home from Canada, & a glowing new mum-to-be embraced with the love only a family can give. So much to celebrate!

A fun relaxed afternoon and amazing photographs to look back on for not only years to come, but to pass on for generation to generation.
