VICTORIA ANDREWS

 

Victoria is not only a photographer but also a high school teacher, a mother of two young children and possibly a coffee addict.  Hailing originally from Auckland, New Zealand, she now calls Brisbane, Australia home and she is passionate about photographing families, specialising in child portraiture. 

She has a genuine desire for pursuing natural beauty and loves nothing more than capturing a dusting of freckles across one’s face, the sparkle in someone’s eye or the way the late afternoon sun sprinkles dappled light onto the subject.  Having said that, she also loves a striking studio portrait!

With a background in the Arts, as both a dancer and teacher, she has a unique perspective on spatial awareness, composition and how the body moves. This ingrained knowledge allows her to perfectly capture the raw emotion on the faces of those she photographs.
