Meet Yasmin

My passion lies with capturing people. I am fascinated by human connection, expressions, love and capturing those authentic moments that we would otherwise have forgotten.

AUTUMN HOME (5 of 5).jpg

Hey! I am so glad you're here!

I'm a proud stay at home Mum to two beautiful children, Winter (3) and Atlas (2) and a wife to an incredibly supportive husband Michael. We have spent the last decade together building my business up from the ground when I was a photography graduate at Deakin university (2014), to now. I grew up by the beach on the Mornington Peninsula, but have always felt a pull towards the hills, low set clouds, forests and lush greenery have my  heart. After meeting my now husband almost 11 years ago, we both knew that the Dandenong Ranges was where our hearts were. We are truly spoilt for choice with incredible locations to photograph, all within arms reach of my Montrose studio. Whilst my business and family grew over the years, we flipped houses along the way too, building and renovating to sell, working towards our dream home. My studio has evolved over several homes and I have slowly learnt what I need in my creative space to succeed. My current space ( albeit not the forever studio, that is coming in the next year!) is beautifully lit with natural light, even on the dreariest of days. I have lovingly decorated it with dried florals and neutral tones which I live for. I absolutely adore bringing new faces into my natural light studio and seeing where the session takes us. I often have to pinch myself that I am a wedding photographer and a family, maternity, product and newborn photographer! want my clients to feel comfortable and never rushed when it comes to sessions in studio and I really feel that I have created such a safe and comfortable space to do so.
