The Fabulous Studio Manager
Meet Josie- Studio Manager | Mumma | Foodie | Answerer to all of your questions!
I am a Mum of 2 wonderful young children, so I understand and appreciate how important it is to create and treasure beautiful family memories.
As Studio Manager I have the pleasure of talking to so many lovely Mum’s and Dad’s at such a special time in their lives.
My job is to answer any questions you may have, book and organise your shoot and look after you throughout the whole process.
My professional background is Finance and Marketing, but I have always had a creative side and feel honoured to be working for such a warm and talented photographer such as Deanna.
Apart from being a busy Mum, I love keeping fit with Zumba classes, soccer and walking. I also love to travel and have a passion for cooking and food!!
I look forward to chatting to you and hopefully organising a session for you soon.
The Magic Making Photographers
Meet Deanna – Director & Head Pregnancy Newborn Child Family Photographer | Chief Baby Whisperer | Child Wrangler
My name is Deanna (or D for short as a lot of people say my name wrong!)
I love everything babies. I love everything photography. I love everything baby photography!
Loving what you do as your job is a rarity and I am lucky to be able to call myself a full time professional photographer for the past 12 years.
Since establishing D Images I have photographed hundreds of families, mums to be, babies of all ages, which I really enjoy but to me nothing gets me more excited than knowing I have a newborn to photograph the next day.
Newborns and big babies to me are perfect. All their teeny tiny features, the softness of their skin and that smell… I get excited even thinking about it!
Getting to meet amazing families and building lifelong friendships is just another perk of the job. I get told I have a bubbly personality and an ability to instantly connect with people leading to me know more than I should about a lot of families! (You know what it’s like when the girls get together)
I have been known to spend extra hours with clients waiting to get “the perfect shot” and guess what… I got it, I always get it.I want every family to feel as happy as I do about their photo shoot. If when you see your photographs for the first time you crack a smile or a wee tear in the corner of your eye then I have done my job.
Thank you for stopping by, Hopefully I will see you very soon D xox
Deanna is a Member of the “National Association of professional child photographers”, “International Newborn Photography Association” and a finalist in the “Local Business Awards North Shore 2015” she is also an accredited photographer with the Australian institute of professional photographer (AIPP)
Meet Chris- Senior Christenings & Event photographer | All round nice guy
Hi, Im Chris
I am a simple man who loves taking photographs and I genuinely enjoy spending time with the people & families I meet and document.
I have a moto “love what you do and work with others that do the same thing”and collaborating with the D Images team ticks that box for me! I love doing a combination of “fly on wall” documentation throughout your christening or baptism and also capture classic and timeless portraits of your child and loved ones on the day.
I have over 10 years experience shooting weddings,events and christenings so whatever the day throws at us I got it covered.
Outside of my passion for photography I am also fortunate to be able to spend a good amount of time on cycling and drinking great coffee!
The Nifty Production Team
Meet Mandy- Chief Editor & Designer | Perfectionist & Retoucher Extraordinaire
Good day everyone!
My love is all things creative.
But my favourite way of working is naturally, which is awesome as this is what D Images stands for!
The real magic happens on the day with D and Chris in camera and I just polish things up for you!
D and I get a long way too well, mainly because we are both totally perfectionist!
Cant wait to see your baby’s photo session! Much love!
Meet Beth – Another Chief Editor | Comedian & Retoucher Extraordinaire
I’m Beth known as “SUPER BETH” by D, not only because of my editing skills, I naturally have super powers, like seriously…ok maybe not but how cool would it be to have super powers!
Now this may sound strange coming from an editors mouth but natural editing is perfect editing, we want your baby to look like your baby! So no crazy filters just a little bit of editing magic to clean your baby skin and the odd out of place object in the background and make sure your images are perfect for you to share and print!
The photographers to all the hard work I just hope to emphasise their talent!
In my spare time, I enjoys underwater basket weaving, anything related to Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Joss Whedon, traveling to the four corners of the Verse, and eating ridiculous amounts of food.
