The most important part of this journey through life is sharing it with the people we love the most. For me, the second most important thing is the photographs that help us remember those that we love when they are no longer on this journey with us. Photography is much more than a job for me, creating memories through photographs of the people we love the most and remembering the times we spend with them will outlast any material thing that we have.
I have worked in the photography industry for over 18 years, photographing everything from High End Weddings to Works of Art, Rugby League Matches to Rock Star's & Hollywood Celebrities. But the photography I have shot consistently and enjoyed the most is Family Portraiture. To me as a mum - creating and capturing lasting family images are the most important, as I know how busy life can be and how quickly time can slip away. During my career I worked in one of Brisbane's Largest Photographic Studio's juggled study and motherhood while completeting tertiary studies in Photography and Fine Arts.
After having a hiatus and being a fulltime mum for a few years, the decision was made to start my own studio - LoddiPots. My studio is relaxed and cosy and my portraits are not staged or posed, they are an unhurried and informal glimpse into your family, they are about capturing you in the same way as other people know you. Capturing the perfect shot only involves you being together - whether that be in a formal line-up, or a picture that is full of action and movement as you all play together. Photo shoots can be small – two siblings, mum and child, dad and baby – or they can also be big, with cousins and grandparents. I love to photograph the things that make your family special - the little looks, the cheeky grins and those special bonds that bring you all together and make you - you!
I can't wait to meet you and learn about your life story and I look forward to the privilege of making memories with you - not just for this lifetime, but for your childrens lifetime and beyond!
