Suede Studios




Hi, my name is Vanessa and my boutique photography studio specialises in fantasy portraits, transformational experiences, image retouching and digital artwork. Many of my clients are creatives wanting original images for their books, music, and walls or to showcase their designs.

My studio overlooks the beautiful Waitakere Ranges, which is just 25 minutes drive West of Auckland's CBD. Visits are by appointment only. 


My Mission

I believe that laughter is the best medicine and play keeps us all young at heart, so I'm dedicated to doing more than just making high quality works of art. I aim to create joy and nourish your soul with an uplifting and life-enhancing experience.

 “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” 

- George Bernard Shaw
