The Experience Of A Lifetime

Life is a collection of experiences.

The more joy you allow yourself, the more positive experiences you will create. Letting go of preconceived ideas about what you are capable of is the first step in an amazing journey of self discovery. Along the way you will meet new friends, try new things and see yourself in a whole new light. 



I have put together 4 exciting experience packages with a variety of different options.



Highly recommended for shy first timers who want to build their confidence and boost their self esteem. For this experience I will do your hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. Images are extra.




Location shoots provide a variety of props and backgrounds, giving your images more variety and scope. For this experience I do your hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. This package includes 1 FREE digital image to the value of $290.




Get set to be the star. This experience includes a nibbles platter and your own dedicated makeup artist who will assist with styling changes. This package includes  2 FREE digital images to the value of $580.




This is a great investment for musicians, authors and any creative artist needing original content and marketing images. The extra 2 hours give you more time to bring your ideas to life. This package includes 3 FREE digital images to the value of $870.

Rock Star Package

This is the Movie Star Package on steroids. I designed this 7 hour session for musicians, writers, costume designers and other creatives, because it offers you the maximum value for money. The extra 2 hours allows you more time to achieve all your ambitious ideas and have them look professional too. It also gives you time to have a break or two and enjoy your nibbles platter. Your images will lightly retouched for your appointment to view and purchase, which will be on a separate day. If you require the addition of fantasy elements to your images in post-production, I can provide you with a quote. If you require images for merchandising, please let me know and I can provide you with a licensing quote.

An incredibly talented photographer, visual artist, and so much more! Vanessa was wonderful to work with, and the images are absolutely fantastic!"

Movie Star Package

5 hours may sound like a long time, but you will be surprised just how fast the time will fly by.  This package will allow you to have little breaks in between outfit changes so you can enjoy your yummy nibbles platter.  Like the Celebrity Package, the session will be held at a location which best matches the aesthetic you are going for. The advantage to this package is that you will have your own dedicated professional makeup artist to pamper you and make you feel like a movie star, while I get the next set ready for action. Plus you get 2 FREE* digital images of your choice to the value of $580.

I had the most awesome day with you. You are a superb photographer, give great clear instructions so that your client can look her best and just make them feel so at ease and beautiful. So thank you! I’m glad I chose YOU to do it!  My GUT was right. It was the experience of a lifetime.



Chartered Accountant


Celebrity Package

This 3 hour package mirrors the Transformation Package, but instead of being at my studio, your shoot will be held at a location that best fits your requirements and reflects the aesthetic you have chosen for your shoot. The major benefit to this package is the range of indoor and outdoor backgrounds the locations have to offer, which will give your images that extra WOW factor. Prior to your session, I will consult with you over the phone so that I bring along the best selection of studio props and wardrobe options to compliment your own. As an added bonus, you also get 1 FREE* digital image to the value of $290, which you can select on a separate day at your free studio appointment to view and purchase.   

It is extremely exciting to be able to release these beautiful photos from my photo shoot with Vanessa.



Mother of two


Studio Package

This 3 hour package is perfectly suited to first-timers who are curious to try a transformation. It's a relaxing, low-key affair with just you and me. I will do your hair, makeup and your wardrobe styling prior to your sitting. I encourage you to bring along 5-6 changes of outfit with you. Every woman loves options, so bring along a range of looks from casual to formal and perhaps some lingerie... if you're feeling daring. You will have access to the studio clothes, shoes and accessories too.  Depending on how fast you are at changing, 4 different looks is achievable.  I like to change the backgrounds for each different look, so you to have the maximum diversity of images to choose from. This makes your appointment to view and purchase your images even more exciting.


Vanessa made me feel instantly relaxed and encouraged throughout, and looking back I thought how much of a fun time it was and amazingly enjoyable. What Vanessa achieves is an exceedingly polished work of art.

Your Experience

Here's what to expect… 

Prior to your shoot day I will be in contact to discuss your requirements so you can tell me about yourself and your wish list. Please feel free ask me any questions you might have so you are not worrying about anything before you arrive. I want you to have a relaxing sleep the night before! 

On your shoot day, you will be warmly welcomed and offered a refreshment.

For the first hour you will have your hair and makeup done. If you are not used to wearing much makeup this may seem a lot, but rest assured it is all required so that the studio lights don't make you look washed out. Your best features will be enhanced and you might even learn some new tricks to take away with you. 


Your clothing will be styled so that you not only look incredible, but you will feel a million dollars as well. I recommend that you bring along your own clothing, lingerie and accessories, which will provide the best fit and suit your individual taste, but if something in my wardrobe department catches your eye, you are most welcome to give it a try. Who knows, you might even fall in love with a new style – that happens a lot. 


During the photography part of your shoot I will guide you through a range of flattering poses and help you with your clothing changes. You can expect to have about 3-4 clothing and set changes to give you a variety of images and to make the selection process even more exciting. 


About a week or two after your photo shoot you will return for your appointment to view and purchase your images. I know that you will fall in love with all of your images, so anticipate setting aside at least 2 hours for this. Seeing your beautiful images for the first time is the best part, so it would be a pity to rush it.


I will lightly retouch your images before I present them to you so that any blemishes or stray hairs are removed. You can request more enhancements or have artistic elements added, which I can provide you a quote for. You can expect to have between 20-40 images to choose from.


Once you have selected which images are your favourites, I will guide you through the process of selecting which display options best suit you. Find out more about my display options by clicking on the button below.

I look forward to meeting you!
