I am a Perth, Australia based portrait photographer, passionately committed to daydreaming and lover of a good book. You can book a photoshoot with me at my studio https://www.zestphotography.com.au/home
One of my favourite things about photographing people is how it enables me to capture and create beautiful stories about their lives. I am inspired by the Victorian Romantic painters, Disney and Ancient Mythology, and I love to create images that have a feminine, magical and glamorous feel to them. In my spare time I am a compulsive reader and am extremely passionate about creating artistic self-portraits that now grace the cover of many novels worldwide.
I understand how it feels to be on both sides of the lens, and my goal is to make sure everyone is having a lot of fun and feeling very beautiful. I’ve found the secret to taking a great portrait stems from not being afraid to ask the deeper questions and lending a compassionate listening ear. When a person is feeling great their soul shines and I love that moment when a person sees a photograph I have taken, and it helps them to feel amazing about themselves.
As a child and teenager, my family moved around due to being in the Army. Adapting to my surroundings, making new friends and changing school and homes was a challenge for me; but one that taught me so many lessons about people and how we function as individuals and in challenging surrounds. My constant was creating beautiful art and remains so today.
I’m a creative and school for me was filled with time at the art room, painting and desires of becoming an illustrator for children’s books. Outside my passion for photography and fantasy fiction, I love puzzles, cosplay, coffee, pyjamas and dogs!
