portrait photography portfolio

I create beautiful, timeless portrait photography of children and teens from my professional home studio on Canberra, ACT.

I specialise in portrait photography for kids aged 3 and above.  I also enjoy teen photography for young people aged 12 and above.  My aim is to capture children's innocence and youth while letting their personalities shine through.

I have won numerous awards in recent years for my portrait photography.  You can see examples of my work in my photography portfolio.

Marina is a very talented photographer. She did such a fantastic job with both my children during their photography sessions. Marina took beautiful, natural photos that I will always treasure.

I turned up to the photoshoot with my three disheveled, scruffy children and Marina took photos of them that are works of art. It was incredible. But they are not just beautiful photos - she managed to take photos that reflect their individual personalities and inner beauty. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
