About Gianna

A bit about me...

I love being outside in the sunshine; beaches and bushland are my zen places. I get very excited about growing produce from seed. 

I tend to navigate around Adelaide by op-shops, so that’s where you will often find me. Sporting the weirdest of all the vintage frocks, as I can’t resist an obscure buy!

I live with my beautiful partner and adopted greyhound, both are an endless source of happiness

Why offer this photography experience?

Photography is a lifelong love. I’ve worked in lots of different areas of photography; commercial, family, weddings to name a few.  I particularly love these boudoir (aka youdoir)/art nude/portrait(!) shoots, because of how powerful they can be. They help clients to positively see and connect with themselves and witnessing this is incredibly rewarding. Also, I get to hang out with some seriously cool and inspirational people!

What's different about this photography experience?

Although I began by creating more conventional boudoir style photography, I felt like something was missing. It didn’t feel like it was the right fit for everyone. After some late nights Googling, Pinterest boards of what could be, collaborations, and passionate conversations (and wine!) with as many people as I could, I redefined what I wanted to offer.

This is an empowering experience to explore different parts of yourself. It’s a safe space to express yourself, talk stuff out, celebrate your body, sense of style, strength, intelligence, quirkiness, humour, your ‘self’ and create unique photographic artwork.

A place to see the beauty in the parts of ourselves that we are often told to feel uncomfortable with. Most importantly this is a collaboration where you decide what approach works best for you.
