about me

Hi, I’m Josette,

A relaxed newborn and family photographer, based in Gympie QLD. I believe that every newborn baby should be remembered for how perfectly tiny they were. How they fit into their parents’ hands and how totally and utterly adored they were by the ones they love.

Every family is unique and worth capturing at any stage in life.

Capturing your family now is something you will thank yourself for doing in years to come. I can't wait to meet you and your growing family. Read on below to get to know me and my family more.

about me 02

I was lucky enough to meet the man of my dreams at a young age. By the time I was 20 I was married and living in Canada with this handsome man – Ben. The thing that initially attracted me to Ben (besides his dashing good looks) was his love and devotion to his family. He always did (and still does) put family first. We both knew we wanted to have a family, and sooner rather than later. After a year of travelling, we headed home to put down roots and start our family.

Two years later we were blessed with a healthy, happy boy – Zavia. I’ve never met a more caring and sensitive boy in my life and feel privileged to call him our own. Zavia is a fanatical soccer player and has recently taken up both guitar and drums and fancies himself as a bit of a pool shark. He is quick-witted and as curious as they come.

Next came along our sweet girl Vada – named after the movie My Girl and not the Star Wars villain. Vada is my little firecracker. She oozes spunk and character and makes everyone around her smile. She can often be found barefoot and with a chicken under her arm. She hates having her hair brushed and likes to take her time getting ready (EVERY DAY!) Vada is my little cheeky one.

And of course, I can’t forget the pets. Eight chickens (Red, Pheonix, Rosey, Daisy, Sandy, Ember, Coal & Cinder), one Rooster (Albert), two puppies (Thunder & River) and a cat (Wookie) complete our family.

Although neither of my pregnancies were a walk in the park (they were actually downright hard!) and raising a young family has its challenges, I wouldn’t change a thing! I am blessed to be a wife and a mother to truly awesome people.

When we are not working/schooling, we will most likely be found on some sort of adventure. Camping and 4WDing are some of our favourite family pastime activities along with toasting marshmallows on the fire at our beautiful property. I’ve also recently discovered a passion for gardening and can now safely say that my herbs are going gangbusters!

I would be honoured to meet your growing family and capture the people most important to you. Please get in touch!
