Elysium Photography, Sydney NSW

How did you get started as a photographer?

My grandfather was a photographer, so it’s been a part of my life pretty much from day one! I learnt on film and developed a passion for black and white film at uni. After having my 2nd baby, I decided to do something that made me truly happy and so Elysium Photography was born.

What did life look like before photography?

I’d worked in a photography studio, I was a digital retoucher for a magazine company and I also worked in printing – all areas that have helped me run my own photography business.

Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …

Wake up, coffee, edit, more coffee, edit, lunch, edit, shoot a session, edit, dinner, edit, sleep!

Do you have a special story to share?

One of my wedding couples have been trying to fall pregnant for over 2 years. They were about to start down the IVF path and then finally fell pregnant naturally – with TWINS!

If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

NEWBORNS – they are the perfect reminder of how tiny and precious my own babies were, because they are so much bigger now.

What is the best thing about your job?

Having a great work – life balance and doing something that makes me truly happy!

Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …

It is hard! There are days when I am hot, sweaty, sore muscles, and I look disheveled. It is not the glamorous polished lifestyle some think it is. It’s also very costly running your own business.

If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?

Something to do with kids. I love working with kids – they can teach us so many things.

Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?

More camera gear – you can never have enough! There’s always a new lens to add to the wish list!

If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?

I would have loved to photograph Robin Williams. He was my all time FAV actor.
