2020 has been a year of many changes and disappointments. But the opportunity for our granddaughter to be part of the Strong Girls session has been a highlight. The joy of hearing Millie telling me how much fun it was, and watching her face when she saw herself for the first time; these are memories I will cherish.Thank you, really doesn’t cover just how appreciative I am for this wonderful experience for my family .

Dee, Millie's grandmother.

Em struggled immensely to get back into life as she knew it in 2020. She was so nervous the day of her photoshoot that she nearly pulled out. I messaged Marina to give her heads up and the response was so comforting that it put my daughter at ease. Em felt comfortable during the photoshoot and they had a lot of fun together.
My daughter loved her artwork. She is very self concious but her first response was ‘amazing’. These photos are something she will have forever to remind her of the resilience it took to get through the year with head just above water.
Mel, Emily's mum.

My 13 year old daughter excels in many different sports, but has struggled somewhat with looking different. What you did Marina, in such a beautiful way, was to reflect her beautiful strength and power back to her in a way that she is endlessly proud of. You captured her essence – her focus and her strength. I can’t thank you enough for doing the work you do.

Lyndall, Darcy's mum.

Marina was wonderful. She very quickly engaged my son and was able to capture his passion for basketball, his incredible strength and the intensity that he plays with. The portraits turned out way beyond our expectations. 

Leah, Ethan's mum.

Lien’s portraits are beautiful and have opened her eyes to what she can do.  She  never believes us when we tell her how well she’s doing and how her skills are improving. Now she can see in her artwork – which she walks past 20+ times a day – just how good she can be and how good she really looks. We love them all!

Iona, Lien's Mum.

I was expecting to hate the photos because I don’t like looking at images of myself. But when I saw the first one I thought, ‘I look beautiful.’ And the photoshoot made me feel so beautiful and strong. I was not expecting that at all. It was amazing.

Kaiyah (14), dancer.

Marina was detailed and professional from start to end. Starting with the consult, she came with a warm and open heart. She listened and asked questions. Her guidance for wardrobe and makeup were very useful!
The shoot itself was very comfortable, easy and fun. Marina was amazing with my 3 young kids! She captured so many great shots of them, I wanted to pick them all. No doubt I would choose her again!

Amber, Ashley, Russel and Sarah's mum.

Tatum LOVED her photographs! She is pretty impressed that she looks so good in them and her brother couldn’t stop saying how amazing he thought they were too.

Thank you for capturing Tatum as I see her – talented, strong, determined and passionate about what she loves doing. These photos will be treasured forever.

Lorelle, Tatum's mum.

When I see my portrait, I always think ‘Oh my God, is that me?’ It feels like I’m a professional netballer. It’s really empowering.

Grace (15), netballer.

I’m really happy I did the photoshoot because I felt I could express the person I want to be. I feel it helped me become stronger and not be afraid.

Kiara (13), dancer.

Our portraits show strong, determined girls. It is important to me that my daughters can see themselves that way to remain strong throughout the good and the bad times.

Cheryl, Sarah & Lauren's mum.

Marina was amazing. She learnt about my daughter’s passion and made her feel safe and happy. The end result is stunning and way more than we could ever have hoped for. Marina you are such a blessing.

Mariko, Issy's mum.

The stunning results from my daughters dance photography are absolutely magical. I recommend Bonofiglio Photography if you want beautiful, professional and a friendly environment. Marina’s the best!

Coby, Scarlett's mum.

Marina was eager to learn about our children before our photoshoot. She was highly professional yet extremely friendly and created stunning artwork from beautiful photos. Thank you for capturing our children beautifully.

Heidi, Alisha and Heath's mum.

What a wonderful delighhtful person Marina is. Always willing to be flexible and accomodating as we live 2 hours away. Beautiful portraits were done of my daughter dancing that we will treasure forever. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Lesley, Tori's mum.

Marina connects with you in so many levels that really puts you at ease. We had a wonderful experience with the photoshoot and just love, love, love the pictures. So precious, so priceless… highly recommended!!!
Mark, Ashley, Russel and Sarah's dad.

I would highly recommend Marina as she understood my daughter, Liana, and worked extremely well with her. Would definitely do more photo shoots in the future. 🙂

Beccy, Liana's mum.

Marina is so warm and inviting, we felt at home at her studio. Adele absolutely loves her portraits. They show her fierceness and passion for athletics and soccer perfectly. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
Jessica, Adele's mum.
