Light Magic Images - Newcastle NSW Family, Maternity, Birth and Newborn Photography

Light Magic Images - Newcastle NSW Family, Maternity, Birth and Newborn Photography AIPP accredited member

I started serious photography around 2006, completing my freelance training in March 2008. Since then I have undertaken numerous training courses and have also become a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography requiring demonstration of a high level of technical competence, along with ongoing training to keep developing my skills.

While I started photography enjoying the beauty of landscapes and wildlife, during my training I came to understand the joy of providing people with beautiful images of themselves and their loved ones. I believe a great portrait is a window into the soul and enjoy capturing that truly memorable moment.

When you do a shoot with me we won’t be posing formally, although I will set you up in a way that maximises our chances to get great light and backgrounds while we relax, communicate and connect. My aim is that you’ll have some fun, play around a little, tell each other some special stuff or even a new secret, and remind each other exactly why you fell in love with each other and I’ll get some super images that you’ll treasure forever.

I’m also at a stage of life where I have the time to ‘give back’ and volunteer for Heartfelt, an organisation dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births, or have children with serious and terminal illnesses. Last year I volunteered as part of Newcastle Sundancers, the official photographers of the Special Olympics Asia Pacific 2013, providing images to athletes and their families free of charge.

Here is what some of my customers have had to say about my work and style:

"Thanks Viv for capturing special memories of our little boy that we can treasure forever. We got exactly what we wanted..a relaxed, flexible and fun photo session and will most definately continue to ask you to photograph for us as our family grows."

Kristy and Nathan White

"It was so hard to choose an image as they are all so good. We have many favourites, we love them all."

Kristina and Mike
