Macie is a real fighter & has been through a scary 12 months. She had a brain tumour removed last year and since then, she hasn’t looked back: she is fitter & healthier than ever! I think you’ll agree with me when I say that is a fair obstacle to over come at the age of ten!

Macie & I had a lot of fun in one of the paddocks at Sleepy Turtle Farm & in the Sleepy Turtle Studio. Macie was just a super-fun kid to hang out with and photograph: twirling, spinning, posing and laughing. ♥️
Macie was excited and happy from the start of our session. She came with 3 different outfits and we really had fun with them! She could turn on that gorgeous smile at the drop of a hat, but also pull a very serious face for me. And when dressed in a princess dress, well there was a whole new fun attitude!
Kate invited me to have my photo taken. I borrowed some beautiful dresses and Kate made me feel like I was a princess and a warrior all rolled into one. – Macie, 10 years old
She [Macie] is a beautiful soul. She sees the good in everyone – Macie’s Mum

In this day and age, where kids are on social media and everyone on TV & online is perfection, it’s easy to see how children can feel self-conscious in their own bodies. This is why I created this Campaign for kids aged 10-16, which I call: You Are Perfect.
I want to instil a sense of self-worth, confidence & beauty during a time when children can dislike their appearance & feel very self-conscious. I want them to feel empowered in knowing that they are beautiful inside & out, and I want them to have portraits to remind them of this.
So, if you have kids between the ages of 10-16, I would LOVE for you to apply for the You Are Perfect Campaign. If you are chosen, you will receive a complimentary portrait session and your favourite image as a thank you for participating. Click the button below to apply!
