Photography is not what I do, it's who I am
Thank you for your interest in my photography and beloved business which I have nurtured since a very young woman.
I’d be described as down to earth, warm, humble, kind, authentic and honest. I care deeply about my work and the people who become my clients and often my friends.
I thrive on simple things ~ my fur babies, my home, my beautiful family, walks, hiking, bike riding, genuine connections, dinners with friends, movies, vintage furniture, reading, antique shopping, road trips and pottering in my garden.
I live with my gorgeous Golden Retrievers, Lola and Winnie and my cat, Sushi in my old, character home. A stone building on my property has been converted to my studio and it’s rustic and charming.
My decision to move out of the city in 2015, return to my roots in the Adelaide Hills and embrace a tree change has been the best thing I've ever done.
My entire career has been immersed in this magical craft.
I’ve studied photography, obtained my Diploma in Commercial Photography, worked in labs, studios and been in business for over 20 years.
Hundreds and hundreds of family shoots and weddings, some lovely exhibitions and nice awards. Film, darkrooms and now digital and computers.
I’ve been gifted with a talent which I have harnessed and grown, it's been my journey, straight from school.
In 2011, I became a Master Photographer which was a special moment in my life.
I'm a long standing Accredited Member of the AIPP ( Australian Institute of Professional Photography )
My dearest Dad built me my first darkroom, a third of his shed when I was 16, although I did try to negotiate for half the shed, haha !
I have photographed the love stories of many couples, as they got married. What a privilege that has been. I have shot over 800 weddings.
In 2020, I made a heartfelt decision and am no longer booking Weddings. It's time for change.
I have a handful of Weddings left to capture in 2021, my books are closed and I will not be shooting them from 2022.
My focus is now completely my Family and Portrait work.
This is where it all began for me, at 24 years old I ran the Family Photography section of a big studio in Adelaide for several years.
I am happiest out in nature, working with small groups / families.
Over the next 12 months I am amping up my Family work and building a bigger Studio amongst the sweeping gums on my property in Strathalbyn. My existing studio, while charming and gorgeous is too small for all I want to do. This is my life long dream.
I have many exciting ideas and plans.
I'd love you to follow along.
Thanks for taking the time.
Kindest, Kerin x
