Meet the team


A photographer to the very heart. A Mum of two kids growing faster than weeds in her garden, her sole focus is to capture what you love about your family and create art that becomes a part of your home and your legacy. Your family. Forever.

What does that mean for you? It means you can relax. Lisa will capture images of your family you’ll love but best of all, you’ll have so much fun doing it.

It really is all about you!

Originally from Fiji, she brings some chilled island flair to the studio. She’s photographed newborns for several years now and we’re so happy she decided to make Perth her home.

Maegan is also a fancy-professional paddler and often spends her late afternoons on the ocean with her team. You’ll even find her there on some chilly winter mornings! And while it’s cold on the water, Maegan is as warm and friendly as they come!

At just over one, she’s still a tad too cheeky to spend much time in the studio. But when she does, Evie is our Chief Health, Wellness and Happiness Officer.

Evie is in charge of providing warm cuddles, wet kisses, and keeps us active with daily walkies. When allowed in the office, she can be found snoozing on Lisa’s feet like a pair of ugg-boots and providing humorous background noises.


The Kids with Cancer Project raises funds for medical research to help kids with cancer. They believe the only way to improve outcomes for kids with cancer is through advances in medical research and to help find kinder, more effective treatments.

This is what they've been saying

"Lisa was incredibly flexible and the photos are gorgeous! Getting three kids, a dog and two slightly frazzled parents to relax, have fun and look great doing it is a pretty amazing feat. Thank you Lisa!."
"Lisa was very welcoming, warm, patient with my girls and created a fun and easy-going atmosphere for our photoshoot.

The pictures are delightful. Thank you"
"Lisa, you were an absolute delight to work with, professional, funny and totally put us at ease. Bonus points for giving our fur baby big cuddles, she loved you too! Thanks again"

When can I do the shoot?
Shoots are held on weekdays. School holiday dates are available, but these book fast.
Can my whole family be involved?

Can I purchase photos?
Yes, of course! A week or two after your session, you will be invited back to the studio to view the images. There is absolutely no obligation to buy; choose only what you love. There’s a guide to our favourite products & prices on our website!
Will my child’s photo definitely be in the book? Can I choose the image?
Every child photographed for the project will be included in the book. To keep the design consistent, we will choose the image. However, rest assured we will be picking our absolute favourite!  Families who invest over $1200 will be guaranteed a double page spread in the book. Families who choose to simply donate will be included in a contributors section at the back of the book. 
When will the book be published and what will it cost?
We are committed to raising a decent amount of funds for the Kids Cancer Project. However, the project has been very popular so we anticipate being able to publish the book in time for Christmas.

Final pricing will depend on the number of books printed but we expect it to cost about $75-$90.
