Reasha and Poppy lit up my studio with laughter and waggy tails! These two were both naturals in front of the camera which made for some really happy and beautiful images. I was really excited to have the energetic Boston Terrier in my studio as she gets along with my dog so well. They both played in their play pen while Reasha and I styled it up and got some images of her on her own. When it was Poppy’s turn to shine, we bribed her with treats and praise and it was worth it to see her eyes light up. I just love capturing the special connection between a woman and her best fur friend. <3
This year my mother turned 55 and I wanted to treat her to a photo shoot and makeover to make her feel as beautiful as I see her. She was a model when she was my age so she was no stranger in front of a camera but after having three children, her perception of herself and her body has changed a lot. We went shopping for a dress for her to wear in the photo shoot and when I picked up the flowery number in the above image she said “I can’t wear that! It’s too low.” I made her try it on any way – it fit her perfectly and you could tell right away she was pleasantly surprised at the way it made her look and feel.
Yesterday was Mums reveal session; the first time she saw all her beautiful images of herself printed and ready to take home. At first she was critical of herself, as we often are, judging herself harshly but when she really looked at the images, she started to see what I see – beauty. It ended up being a real struggle for her to choose between the images she loved most to put into her package and the best thing of all – her favorite set of images was the sexy flowery dress!
I am so proud of my Mum and the images we created so I want to share these photos with you all in the hope that you too will want this for your Mums. Our mothers deserve to be pampered and have stunning photographers of themselves, no matter what age, because they are beautiful and we all want to capture that for all of time.
“Recently I had the pleasure of meeting with Selby from Selrose Photography and I have to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. Selby in particular made me feel comfortable and confident. With her amazing support and professional guidance throughout the shoots we were able to capture some beautiful photos that I am incredibly proud of.
During the shoots I couldn’t stop smiling. It’s crazy how wonderful something like this can make you feel both inside and out. The photos mean so much to me, not just for their beauty but for the great times and many laughs I associate them with. Showing the photos to my family and friends was yet another highlight. They all absolutely loved them! A lot of them even told me they were as good as any other model’s they’d seen.
I am passionate about modelling and for a long time now it has been something that I’ve aspired to excel at. Needless to say my experience with Selrose Photography has only strengthened those aspirations. So if you’re like me and want to take some wonderful photos with some great people whilst feeling comfortable in your own body, Selby and the whole Selrose team are definitely for you.” – Katie.
A few weekends ago I photographed Emily. She is a mother, wife, makeup artist, hair dresser and an absolutely gorgeous woman inside and out!
Emily is my go to makeup and hair stylist at Selrose so I wanted to treat her to a photoshoot of her own. I really loved photographing her starting with a casual look with stunning window light and soft waves and moving all the way through to a sexy black look with bling. We even took some photos with no make up at all!
Meet Tegan Rose. She is the Rose of Selrose Photography!
While she is no longer working with Selrose, she is still one of my best friends. Recently, Tegan’s partner of many years proposed to her and she said yes (on a gondola in Venice of course!). I wanted her to have some special photos to celebrate this occasion just on her own for a change. It’s important to have beautiful images of yourself and to be pampered once in a while. Can’t wait to have her and her fiancé in the studio soon. Enjoy this pretty face!
On a beautiful day in Warrick, Todd and Mikayla wed at Slade Hall after 5 years of enjoying each others love. With their 5 colourful bridesmaids and 5 handsome grooms men, it was sure to be a fantastic party!
“Mikayla and I just want to thank you so much for the amazing photography done at our wedding. With so many different things to worry about on the day, it was an amazing help to have one of the biggest parts of the wedding to also be one of the easiest. Everything was completely taken care of, and we are just so glad that you were there to keep the guests where they had to be. Wedding photos can often be seen as a chore for some people, so we were pleasantly surprised with how fun it was to take ours. We can’t thank you enough for helping us capture the best day of our lives in such a beautiful way.” – Todd & Mikayla
Here are some pictures from their day…
When I traveled to Europe with my partner I was just like you, a tourist with a camera! I enjoyed taking happy snaps in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, my love lock on the bridge in Paris and the sunset over the Eiffel Tower. It was a full on, whirl wind trip of a life time to so many places including London, Amsterdam, Austria, Rome, Nice, Paris and to finish it off, Phuket. Here are some of my favourite photos.
I come from a family of talented people and my sister is the ultimate triple threat! With a voice that can melt your heart, creativity you see in the greatest artists and the ability to act out any roll put in her lap. She’s an singer/dancer/artist/actress/musician with a pretty face. I love these headshots I took of her recently and couldn’t wait to share them.
Bronte Danae is a Brisbane based actress and completed her advanced diploma at Queenslands most sort after acting school, The Actors Workshop. She has starred in many short films and has even been selected to star in the “World Cast Movie” that had auditions from around the world! Her acting has now lead her to Los Angeles where she is currently promoting her work for the next three months! I wish her all the luck in the world over there.

If you are looking for headshots, I offer special packages for emerging Brisbane actors so please don’t hesitate to enquire!
Happy new year!
I don’t often photograph landscapes because I don’t feel the connection I get from photographing people. A few weeks ago some friends and I camped at Somerset Dam. I was awoken at the crack of dawn by duck quacking and decided to get up. I saw this beautiful sunrise and couldn’t resist the urge to capture such a beautiful sight.
A short flashback to just a few weeks ago at Heat 4 of fashion friday in the beautiful venue, Capulet Bar. Designers Evelyn Curtis, Jessica Tovey, I found Lucy, Hoskin Designs, Zara McKenna and Hunting Faith put their latest collection on the runway to compete for a place in the grand finale on the 1st of December. Here’s some of my favourite gowns from the night!
