Hey there! Thanks so much for looking me up, I am thrilled to have you here.
I am a Lifestyle Family Photographer based in Trafalgar, Gippsland where I live with my husband and two children aged 7 and 5. I have been passionate about photography since I was in high school but it took me 22 years to have the courage to follow my dream. It remained a hobby all those years through numerous office jobs, travelling & living in the UK, moving around Australia, settling back in at Trafalgar and having kids. In 2013 I started my business and I am thankful every day that with the support of my family, I can live my dream and do something that I truly love whilst meeting wonderful people like you!
Basically I can’t help myself but photograph every aspect of my world and it has been that way for as long as I can remember. I would just love the opportunity to photograph your world too.
I have a candid and natural approach to my photography and I am not much of a “look at me and say cheese” type of photographer so if you like the posed pictures where everybody is looking at the camera and smiling, then perhaps I am not the photographer for you. I chase light, love colour, adore movement and embrace nature and I have loads of fun at my sessions. My main objective is to make you and your family as comfortable as possible so I can capture the pure joy, happiness, connection and love that your family encompasses. I consider all families unique, beautiful – colourful! It doesn’t matter if your family is your partner, your new baby, your children or maybe even your friends. What ever form you and your loved ones take, I would love to meet you to help document your family just the way that you are and doing the things that you love to do.
I believe in the importance of family photography and that is why I have my own family photographs taken every year. I know the challenges of getting your husband on board, being worried about your kids being above board and being in front of the camera yourself but I can assure you (& them) that it is going to be super relaxed and fun. We are going to have a blast and you will want to come back year after year instead of dreading it (well I can only hope). I have some beautiful techniques to let your children be themselves and bring out the light and colour within your family while focusing on the moments we can create together. Trust me when I say – there is no better time than now.
Do you like how that sounds? Great! Let’s chat about me coming to your home, a family favorite location or if there is somewhere you would like me to suggest then that is AOK too.
A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS
A FEW WORDS FROM MY CLIENTS
We can’t thank you enough. We really love your work – so easy, simple and natural. We just got all our framing back today and was so excited to place them all around the house for all to see. Thank you for the slideshow – it was very well done and the brag book – wow! Very impressed with how well it was set out and with the whole package. We will definitely be having you as our photographer in the future and highly recommending you. Thank you again for everything.
I knew I had made the right choice in approaching Colour of Life Photography to capture my first family photographs. After being thrilled with my bump to baby photographs and the experience of having them taken, I knew we were in brilliant hands. But somehow I was still blown away by how stunning our family photographs turned out. To say I was ecstatic with them would be an understatement. Not only was the final product amazing, but the whole process was so simple and comfortable. Kellie was fantastic at working in with the needs of our family and made us feel at ease in front of the camera. I couldn’t recommend a photographer more highly. Thank you again Kellie. I will forever cherish the beautiful memories you have captured for me and my family.
Love love love all our pics. There are a few photos where we both almost got teary looking at our amazing little boys but more so that you captured exactly who we are. We cannot thank you enough, you are so talented xxx”Nic
I am so thrilled with my photos! Kellie captured the true essence of the moment, showing the warmth, love & bond between me and my son and that is priceless. Kellie was so easy to work with, the whole photography session was relaxed and enjoyable resulting in just beautiful moments that I will have for a lifetime. A Big, Big Thank-you.Kirsty
