Hey I'm Stevie. I’m a self taught photographer who began professionally photographing in 2007.  My mission is to empower my clients to love the skin they’re in & to be proud of their journey and themselves. 



I get to know my clients and connect with them before we start shooting, so I’m able to capture their true, wholesome essence. My favourite shots are the in-between moments, and they’re always the shots my clients end up loving the most as well!



I love capturing women, particularly when they have embraced themselves, despite all the odds. My signature style #SVDCBodyLove came about after I began taking self portraits as a way of healing and teaching myself Photography. It’s all about showing women how beautiful they are, no matter what shape, size, colour or background.



Since 2016 we’ve raised over $7,500 for the Full Stop Foundation (the not for profit initiative of Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia) to help put an end to Domestic Violence & Rape, full stop.



10 years after founding SVDC, we have developed into an award-winning Photography Agency with a team of funny, smart, intuitive and creative women that I couldn't be more proud of! 


Thanks for coming by, we hope to work with you soon! xo Stevie
