From Rachel: I’m honored to have teamed up with a fellow birth-space professional Vicky Palmieri to do some guest posting. If you’re in Melbourne and wanting to find a passionate, talented photographer for your maternity, newborn or family portraits, look no further than Vicky. Read on to get a feel for what makes her tick! 🙂
Hey there, I’m Vicky, a wholehearted Lifestyle Photographer for families and business, located in Melbourne’s inner west. I’m the kind of photographer that loves keeping it real and honest. When it comes to maternity, newborn and family photography, I love to create emotionally evocative images that can be felt, right here in the heart.
Working with women in business is such a rewarding experience for me also. Helping women show up for their brand by taking a bold stand in their business; making them shine to anyone and everyone though their socials and website.
I’m so drawn to photographing people, because quite simply, I adore human connection. No matter who is in front of my lens, I love drawing out their best personality features, quirks and uniqueness.
This stems from my childhood albums, that contain pictures that lack the very thing I love – human connection. The photos seem quite stagnant and sometimes awkward. For example; me standing behind my birthday cake waiting to blow out my candles or my Dad holding me while posing in front of the family car. Don’t get me wrong, I love these photos to bits, but when my kids were born, I wanted something more for them and me. I wanted to be teleported back to that very moment when we looked at a photo, and feel all the feels.
This is what I want for my clients. I want to take them on an experiential journey from the beginning right through to the delivery of their photos. My emotive photographic storytelling and playfulness capture those truly authentic in-between moments. The kind of moments that make you remember and feel.
The sessions I offer are:
Maternity – Empowering women to embrace the now of their femininity and celebrating their body.
Newborn – Finding the beautiful in simple everyday moments, as parents get to know their brand new bub. Relaxed, natural and intimate.
Family – Embracing the chaos of family life is what makes my family sessions truely unique. It’s a crazy, cuddle love fest and we have an absolute ball.
Motherhood – Mum getting in the frame and spending some chill time with her wee ones, to receive some seriously beautiful images that tug (hard) at her mumma heart strings.
Women in Biz – Not your run of the mill headshot. Uh uh, women is biz looking for authentic and real. Something that screams personality to showcase their service and/or products on their website, socials, or anything that promotes what they do.
I’m located in West Footscray, but service all of Melbourne (and beyond) as I’m a mobile photographer. If any of these sessions sound like something you need in your life right now, please head to my website for more information.
Much love to you
