Samantha Bryce – Samantha Bryce Photography, West Hoxton Sydney NSW
How did you get started as a photographer?
I’ve always had a camera in my hand, wanted to document every single moment as my memory is NOT the best. This is what makes me happy. Looking back and seeing an image and being able to recall exactly what a felt in that moment. And specialising in newborns was a no brainer!! I love babies, I have 2 and don’t want anymore of my own so I just play with everyone else’s and then can return them 🤣
What did life look like before photography?
I was a beauty therapist before newborn photography.
Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …
Get the kids to school, to the studio, edit, shoot, clean, edit, paperwork, pick kids up and be a wife and mum 🥰❤️
Any memorable moments?
The most special moments I have with my clients are when I see them again for their order meetings. I get all the baby cuddles, a cup of tea and a chat with the parents. Sometimes sessions can be full on with siblings or if baby is having a bad day so it’s just nice to sit and listen to these new parents and find out how they’re dealing with their new little person.
If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Newborns hands down!
What is the best thing about your job?
The flexibility to still be a mum and wife while making an income to contribute to my little family ❤️
Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …
Unpacking their products to do quality checks before they receive everything is an absolute mission!! 🤣 I spend SO MUCH time on the computer doing editing and paperwork it’s made me need to wear glasses now 😳
If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?
Admin probably (yawn)
Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?
A bigger house on a massive block of land with a huge separate studio on the block 🙌🏻
If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?
Hugh Jackman….I just don’t feel there’s a need to explain this answer 🤣😂
