Portraits

As an award-winning Photographer, I welcome you to Amante Studios. I am passionate about working with my clients who appreciate fine quality art. I provide a comfortable and relaxed environment where we work together to capture your unique personality and style.

As a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, I provide the highest standards of production from the photo session to the fine-art prints, frames and albums.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Life is a journey, not a destination” and my wish is to provide you with creative experiences, at Amante Studio. My extensive travel throughout Europe and Asia, not only gave me outstanding photo opportunities, but also gave me a worldly perspective and respect for people of all cultures. I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

There is a well-known study called Phototherapy in Mental Health authored by David A. Krauss and Jerry L. Fryrear.  Within the pages of it, David Krauss, a licensed psychologist, says “I think it is really important to show a family as a family unit. It is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of that family unit. A photographer’s job is to create and make the image look like a safe holding space for kids where they are safe and protected. Kids get it on a really simple level.”

When children see photos of themselves and their family it gives them security and a sense of belonging. The power of print is especially important for children.  We have a responsibility to print our photos not only for our children but for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
