I am a mother of two beautiful children, who has a passion for life and capturing the amazing things that happen in it. I began my working career as a teacher but after having my daughter, I chose to return to the thing I loved most, photography and haven't looked back. I love being able to follow the journey my clients are on, and capture those moments that go by so quickly. The stories I have been privileged to learn and capture stay with me forever and I remember each and everyone.
My favourite colour is GREEN and love Alpacas, chickens, dogs and horses! I love to use colour within my photography set ups. I love being able to get outdoors with not only my maternity and family clients but with my newborns as well. but living in Melbourne, this cant happen all year round :(
With photographing over 200 newborn babies, mummies to be and children, devoting my time to learning the safest ways to pose newborns, to define my style and to capture not just a photograph but a memory or an emotion from each set up I do, I provide the highest quality experience to those who walk into my studio and pair it with fine art products that will bring life to your home and ever lasting memories displayed for friends and family to enjoy.
My name is Skye Drake and I am a fully qualified makeup artist and hairstylist, specialising in makeup for photography.
With over 5 years of experience, I know exactly what works for every beautiful face I get the pleasure of glamming !
For the past 3 years, I have had the absolute pleasure of working alongside Emma and getting the chance to not only meet, but get to know so many beautiful families.
Seeing a mumma, getting to do her hair and makeup for her maternity shoot and then being able to meet that special little one (or ones) once they are born, is the most rewarding experience for me !
I have to kick myself every day that I am lucky enough for this to be my career and that I even met the lovely Emma in the first place.
