Hello! My name is Stephanie Johnson and I am the photographer behind Silvergum Photography. Having been a keen photographer since childhood, I balanced photographing weddings and portraits with working full time in the children’s services and disability fields for many years under the business name Stephotos. In June 2013 I decided to follow my passion, hone my photography skills and pursue photography full time. I changed my business name to Silvergum Photography as I wanted a name that reflected Australia, natural photography and the great outdoors. I think it’s a perfect fit!
With over 20 years experience in working with children and families I decided to focus on children’s portraiture as I have always loved and enjoyed this field of photography. Through my previous work I developed a strong understanding of the importance of customising services to meet the individual needs, personalities and requests of families. Photography is no exception.
Seascape and nature photography have also been a passion of mine for many years so these genres are also a big part of Silvergum Photography. A moody seascape is always a favourite challenge of mine to capture so I try to get to the beach whenever the weather radar is looking ominous or a brilliant sunset is a possibility.
If you and your family have been thinking about having a portrait session and decorating your home with playful, natural photos, I might be the photographer for you! Please take a look around my website. You will find information on portrait photography, party photography, child care / preschool photography (to come very soon) and landscapes.
Thanks for visiting and I look forward to meeting you!
