CREATIVE SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY LIKE NO OTHER.
Bold athletes, incredible portraits.
Me too. I believe self-image is everything: it is the tale we tell ourselves of who we are and what we can achieve. And it’s hard to be what you can’t see in yourself. That’s why I work closely with each junior to create the most epic, self-empowering sports photos we can.
I guide them in each pose and expression so their portraits reflect the very best of their skills and personality. Because I want your kids to see their own artwork and be reminded of their own limitless and incredible potential.
We tend to believe that photographs are a mirror of who we are. So when we see one we like we feel good, but when we see one we dislike we doubt ourselves, we resent how we look and we hesitate on what we can achieve. And while you probably see the absolute best in your kids, they are their own humans, forming a self-image of their own.
I believe that the earlier juniors develop positive self-image, the easier it is for them to be confident in their own decisions, to build healthy relationships and to strive for the life they want.
My studio creates artwork because no matter if your kids are having a bad day, feeling unmotivated, or self-doubting, they can always have that mirror of themselves that will reflect some of the best facets of who they are and make them say ‘Wow, that’s me!’
BEHIND THE SCENES
WHAT’S THE NEXT DATE AVAILABLE?
The studio is usually booked 4-8 weeks in advance depending on the season. To know what’s the earliest date available, please fill the form below.
HOW IT WORKS
Before booking your session, we’ll chat on the phone to ensure this is the right experience for you. To guarantee the high quality of my portraits, I only accept 50 athletes and dancers per year.
A video call from the comfort of your home with you and your kids. This is all about them: who they are, how they want to be photographed and how to prepare for their session to make sure we have the most incredible session we can have together.
Your photoshoot will be a fantastic parent-athlete day out. I will coach your kids through bold poses to showcase the strength of body and mind they gained through training. It will be a lot of fun!
Choose your artwork
Using the latest software, you’ll get to see exactly how your favourite portraits will look on your walls. Together, we’ll design the most incredible art displays that will blow you away, every day.
Interest-free payment plans
Artwork payments are super easy . You can choose to pay in full or select one of our 12 month payment plans. Artwork starts at $25 a week. So we make it easy and super affordable for everyone.
Once you book your photoshoot and consultation dates, we cease to offer them to other families. This is why photoshoots incur a $500 retainer which is due during your phone call.
WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING
Marina spent time with my daughter to build her confidence and trust in the shoot before even starting. From the moment we arrived it was relaxed and comfortable. My daughter, who is normally the most anxious of children, wanted to go back the next day and do it all again. Nevaeh had the most incredible time. Marina coached and encouraged the entire time. At no stage did Nevaeh feel rushed or anything less than a super star. The photos have blown away our friends and family. It was an incredible experience and we can’t wait to go back and do it again – maybe with the horses next time.
Marina was absolutely amazing. She was eager to learn what we wanted from the photoshoot. She got to know the children before our actual photoshoot which made the session go smoothly. She is highly professional yet extremely friendly and creates stunning artwork from beautiful photos. She is able to capture the individual’s personality as well as the love they have for their sport.
Thank you for capturing our children beautifully.

REACTIONS & ARTWORK
My absolute favourite part of each photoshoot is when I receive videos parents send to me of their athletes reacting to seeing their portraits for the first time. There are tears, dancing, giggles of joy, hugs and more. Want to see these?
