I am very easy going and have had over 10 years experience photographing all different types of sessions. I am super organised and very relaxed.

My goal is to capture you in your most natural element, in a relaxed environment and have  genuine smiles and laughter together.

With photography, it is always best to book in early especially for weddings. I would suggest you book at least 12-18 months in advance.

Maternity, Birth & Newborn sessions, I would suggest you book as soon as you find out you are pregnant. Maternity sessions can be taken from 32 weeks onwards and newborn sessions are recommended to take place when baby is 7 days to 4 weeks new.

All other sessions I would suggest booking as soon as possible so you don’t miss out, especially for our themed mini sessions.

I love all types of photography. Weddings, Maternity, Births, Newborns, Family, Formals, Photobooth, you name it, I will capture it!

I am more than happy to meet you before your session. We can do this at my studio, cafe or your place to discuss all the details.

ABSOLUTELY!  I use professional equipment and software to edit, save and archive your images, just in case you may need them again.

You will have your gallery delivered to you within 2 weeks via our online portal. Your gallery is locked and will require a password to download it. You are more than welcome to share this password and link with your family & friends so they are able to download them too. Galleries stay online for one month from receiving your link.

A sneak peek of your session will be shared on our social media sites within a couple days from your session.

Of course! I strongly recommend you print your images. Have them on display for everyone to see and comment, not stored and forgotten on your computer. 

We can also create albums, canvas or metal prints. Please ask for prices.

As the content creator, under Australian copyright law I am the copyright owner of the images. However, you have the freedom to share, print, scrapbook, and use your images for personal use however you see fit. I do not watermark my images and you’re free to print them. What you can’t do is provide them to any sort of commercial entity for commercial use, so if your wedding venue or makeup artist contacts you about using my artwork to promote their business, just send them my way and I would be happy to work out a usage agreement. Also no alterations/filters extra edits are allowed on the photos. 

Sorry, but no. However, you will receive high resolution edited images in your gallery which are able to be enlarged and printed if required.

Then we can reschedule – as easy as that. 

Rescheduling needs to happen at least 48 hours in advance for photography sessions.

The key is to be comfortable. Try and wear something that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Try and stay clear of writing or images on shirts as that draws the attention away from you.

Holistic Healing

Reiki is a form of complementary therapy relating to energy healing. Proponents say that it works with the energy fields around the body and involves the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to the client.

Reiki is a type of energy healing. According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or even emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Reiki practitioners believe that improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, relieve pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.

Reiki allegedly aids relaxation, assists in the body’s natural healing processes, and develops emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. 
Some anecdotal evidence suggests that it may induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall well-being.
Conditions that people have used Reiki to help treat include:
• cancer
• heart disease
• anxiety
• depression
• chronic pain
• infertility
• neurodegenerative disorders
• autism
• Crohn’s disease
• fatigue

People living with certain health conditions may be interested in trying Reiki alongside their regular treatment. For instance, some people with cancer may find Reiki beneficial as it may help them relax. The gentle nature of Reiki therapy may have a soothing effect on patients who find that they become overwhelmed with invasive therapy, fear, and stress.
Individuals report different experiences. Some say that the practitioner’s hands become hot, others report cooling hands, and some feel pulsating waves. The most common reports are of a release of stress and deep relaxation.

Practitioners will typically give Reiki treatment in a peaceful, private setting. However, the treatment can take place anywhere. During a session, the client will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed.
The practitioner will then place their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the client’s head, limbs, and torso. They will typically keep their hands in these positions for 3–10 minutes. According to practitioners, Reiki channels universal energy known as ki, pronounced “chi.” This is the same energy involved in tai chi exercise.
This energy supposedly permeates the body. Reiki experts point out that although this energy is not measurable with modern scientific techniques, many who tune into it can feel it. Reiki allegedly aids relaxation, assists in the body’s natural healing processes, and develops emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. 


Carmen is a Reiki Master and can attune you in
•  Level 1 Reiki
•  Level 2 Reiki
•  Level 3 Masters (becoming a Reiki practitioner)

No prior training, education, or experience is necessary to enter the Reiki training or “attunement process.” In this process, the Reiki master transfers the attunement energy and healing techniques to the student. Reiki training varies, but most students learn about:
• the energies around the body
• how to work with healing energy
• the ethics of working with clients

Preparation for attunement may include avoiding alcohol and caffeine for 1–3 days, meditation, focusing on nature, and releasing negative emotions.
There are three levels of mastery. Those who reach “Master” level can teach others and can heal from a distance.

Access Bars® refers to the 32 points on your head that, when gently touched, effortlessly, and easily release anything that stops you from feeling joy and ease in your life. These points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and considerations you have stored. This is an opportunity for you to let go of everything! This releases anything that doesn’t allow you to receive. These points (aka bars) contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and considerations that you have stored in any lifetime.

The Access Energetic Facelift gives the body a chance to move and transform a lot of the limiting energies and judgments that get locked in our face, head, chest, and body.

A dynamic yet gentle hands-on body process, the facelift can deepen and quicken the body’s natural healing capacities. The Access Energetic Facelift is a wonderful way to rejuvenate the face and reverse the signs of aging on the face and throughout the entire body. The gentle soothing touch applied to your face and neck works with your body’s cells to restore, enliven and rejuvenate.

While receiving an Access Facelift, many different energies are applied to the body and face, and there are many possibilities to discover what can be released. What if you could dissipate everything you have judged about your face?

Aromatherapy massage is used for a variety of different reasons, including relaxation, pain management, and to improve mood. These are also some of the basic benefits of massage therapy. Adding essential oils is thought to enhance such benefits. Essential oils can be added on to any type of massage for aromatherapy purposes.
Massage therapy has been linked to short-term decrease in physical aches and pains and improved mood. Adding an essential oil for an aromatherapy massage can potentially enhance the effects.
For example, if you have depression, then adding a mood-boosting oil like orange could also make you feel better.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for certain benefits. Examples include lavender, orange and bergamot, and eucalyptus. These “aromas” are all plant-based derivatives from herbs, tree extracts, and flowers. Essential oils are extremely concentrated so to be used correctly they should be diluted into milder oils, humidifiers, or lotions.
The overall purpose of aromatherapy is meant to improve your physical and mental well-being. More consumers are testing out essential oil products than ever before by diffusing them at home or diluting them for skin usage.

There are generally few risks associated with aromatherapy massage. One consideration is possible sensitivity to the essential oils used during your session. Your massage therapist should always dilute the oil with massage lotion or a carrier oil before applying to the skin. If you’re unsure about a particular oil, ask the therapist to diffuse it in the room instead of applying it directly to your skin.

Possible symptoms of an allergic reaction to essential oils include:
• rash
• hives
• redness
• swelling
• itchiness

We make our essential oil blends with Young living products and dilute with natural ingredients such as coconut oil.

A basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. It is also a popular spa treatment to pamper and relax.

Each facial begins with a consultation that helps Carmen determine the right products for your skin type and concerns. Once that’s been determined, the relaxing part begins! Most basic facials include some version of the following five steps:
1. Cleansing
Carmen will massage a cleanser into your face, neck, and décolletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, she will remove the cleanser, dry face and evaluate skin. This step helps her to determine what type of custom mask she will apply later.
2. Exfoliation
Carmen will buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub and/or open up pores with steam.
3. Extractions
This process is done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. Carmen will perform the extractions either by hand or with a special metal tool.
4. Massage
A facial typically also includes a massage of the face—and often the upper body, too—this can improve lymphatic drainage.
5. Masks and more
Carmen will then apply a custom mask, perhaps a clay-based one to treat oiliness or a hydrating one to combat dryness. The facial concludes with specialised serums and a moisturizer.

Most basic facials last 60 minutes. If you are time poor we offer an express facial for 30 minutes.

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy.

Microneedling may help with issues like:
• Acne
• Hair loss (also called alopecia)
• Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
• Large pores
• Reduced skin elasticity
• Scars
• Stretch marks
• Sun damage
• Fine lines and wrinkles

Microneedling is less expensive than laser treatments, which can cost about four times as much. Microneedling may work better for people with darker skin tones because it doesn’t involve heat the way laser treatments do, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation, or color. Ask your dermatologist what’s best for your skin — and your budget.

The procedure usually takes 10-20 minutes, depending on how big the area is. Most people need 4-6 treatments to see a difference.
First, you’ll get a numbing cream smoothed onto your face so you can’t feel the needle pricks. Then the person doing the microneedling will move a pen-shaped or rolling tool with tiny needles around your face. The needles make small cuts in your skin, which causes a bit of bleeding. Your doctor may spread a cream or serum on your face after that.
The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles.
Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also done on other parts of the body, such as your stomach or thighs.

Our eyebrows shape our face which directly affects the way we look. This is why the effectiveness of brow waxing is determined by several techniques and factors such as studying the shape of the face. Carmen will base on your facial feature to design the perfect brow shape that matches you.

Think your lashes are short and flat? Think again! Discover effortless beauty with our eyelash lifting treatment that will curl, lengthen and define your natural lashes without needing to use mascara or lash curlers. 

A Lash Lift is a process which will stretch, lift and lengthen your natural lashes into the perfect eye-opening curl. Paired with an eyelash tint to add colour, gloss and definition, the results are instantly beautiful, fluttery eyelashes that last for up to eight weeks… no glued on extensions, no mascara, no pinchy lash curler needed.

Tinting will give you a darker and more noticeable and defined brow and lash line. If your brows or lashes are light-coloured, fine, sparse or barely there, eyebrow and eyelash tinting would be the perfect solution to accentuate your eyes beautifully. Carmen will help you choose a suitable colour from our wide range of tints for your brows and lashes. Our tinting services bring you gorgeously darkened brows and lashes that work beautifully to accentuate your eyes and facial structure.

Our brow and lash tints are a form of hair dye developed for specific use on brows and lashes. They are semi-permanent colour designed to last for three to four weeks. Lash tinting produces a similar effect to mascara, visibly lengthening, darkening and thickening the appearance of eyelashes without smudging, clotting or rubbing off.
