Personal note from the photographer

My vision as an artist and photographer is to create beautiful portraits that reveal my clients’ stories in a natural and authentic way.

Your session is a special moment in time that is truly worth remembering. I believe that it is important to deliver work that lights up my clients’ faces, and that I can be proud of, so we take the utmost care with every session. I strive to deliver the finest quality of work every time.

To give you an idea of my specialised photographic styles, have a browse through some of the photos from my recent work. Please note that the images are scaled down to ensure a fast and responsive website, so it does not truly reflect the quality of the actual product.


What to bring to your session

Commonly asked questions about photographic sessions often revolve around what clothing is most ideal to wear for the shoots. We recommend clothing with reds, blues, greens, pinks or purples. These colours always stand out in our photos. Try to avoid wearing clothing with patterns (very subtle patterns are generally okay). Not everything has to match—as long as everything goes together in the bigger picture then ‘bob's your uncle’!

If you would like to do a more creative or adventurous shoot, there are no limits to the imagination! Dress the family in your favourite super hero outfits, or try a formal or elegant theme; there is nothing more eye-catching than a long, extravagant dress in a park or beach setting.

Martinette Studios also offers a wide variety of vintage props and beautiful, elegant dresses, but feel free to bring along your own. Balloons are always welcome as they give the little ones something fun to do and they help to capture a natural look and feel. The balloons can be any colour, with the exception of whites, creams and yellows.

If your shoot involves little ones, please bring along wipes or tissues for little noses.

For beach shoots, we recommend bringing a change of clothes and some towels.

The most important thing to remember is to be yourself and have fun!
