About the Artist

"And from the Chaos of Her soul

                there flowed Beauty"

         ~ Louise Alexandra Erskine

All art begins with just the spark of an idea, and passion ~

Hi there...

The important things to know about me straight up - if its a choice between chips and chocolate I'll go for the Maltesers every time. I embrace my awkwardness - you're probably going to laugh, and my first word was 'pretty' which says a lot about me. Three traits I admire the most: empathy, compassion + courage. I believe that happiness is an emotion, not a goal. And my favourite place is something to eat, so I love to be anywhere the food is delish!

A Brisbane born artist + photographer, a devoted wife and mother of three daughters, a lover of love and the ultimate romantic at heart, I want to hear all about you and your unique love story whether its brand new love, family love or something in between... and I want to tell it authentically ~ we'll be sharing your beautiful memories and I will hold your hand or your dress or your child whenever you need me, I'll stand back and quietly document the intimate thread of your story, and in the end we'll feel like friends.

“photography is telling heart stories with images”

I feel privileged to do what I do; to be a part of the memory creating experience is humbling every time.   My career in photography began with a spark of a dream and was inspired by my own personal love stories, and is the reason I get out of bed smiling every day.  I'm an experienced, formally trained photographer and I've been in your 'wedding shoes' before so to speak :) so from bride to bride and mother to mother you know that I understand.  I feel like I'm living my own personal dream and I want to share your love story with the world in colour, black and white, and intimate moments, that will be remembered in my images long after the details are forgotten.

 So let's chat... drop me a line and say "Hi..."

My Favorite Things

through the eyes of my love;

The Art for Life Philosophy

art for life STRIVEs TO CREATE LASTING MEMORIES WITH EMOTION AND is JUST AS PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR MEMORIES AS YOU.

With artistry and storytelling in mind, the focus at Art for Life Photography is on experience; your experience, the experience and our experience together and the way these moments will last in your images for life. Spending time together creating and capturing portraits of the people you love should be a fun, exciting and rewarding experience that is creatively told in a story of images. From the moment you get in touch, through to your professional photography session and beyond the delivery of your memories, the goal is to create a welcoming and comfortable time with you that is much more than just a photo shoot.

One of the most rewarding things about being a photographer is being able to tell love stories over time, seeing wonderful Art for Life families time and again to document milestones is at the very heart of what drives Art for Life Photography. To be woven into the fabric of your story with artistic documentation of your memories is always touching, and this little business is grateful to have so many long relationships with Art for Life families. Art for Life services are constantly evolving to continue to be there with you to capture the way you are in that moment for keepsakes that you will treasure for life, and that your children can keep even longer.
