A bit about me

A bit about me – the photographer =)

A bit about me | Gillian Foley PhotographyOriginally from Cape Town, South Africa, we emigrated to Brisbane in November 2005. My husband (and sometimes 2nd shooter, Simon) and I are parents to two boys, Matthew and Jason. As any child photographer will tell you, my main inspirations are my children (and fur-babies!). Photography aside, I also do a spot of webdesign and love craft (in fact, a lot of my really old posts on this blog are digital and paper scrapbooking related!). I am also a Les Mills BODYCOMBAT®, CXWORX® and BODYPUMP® instructor and fitness forms a big part of my life too.

I’m fascinated by history and I’m very sentimental, which explains why I got into scrapbooking and photography in the first place! I love texture and tangible things, so I have albums all around the house along with photos of my family and other family craft. Photographs have the ability to transport us back to a moment in time. And what is life, but a series of moments? I aim to capture those moments for people to cherish for years to come. Precious moments in time. <3

If you’d like me to capture those memories for you, please feel free to contact me via the contact form, email or find me on Facebook. ~ Gill
