Vanessa Van Straaten

“I invite you to a portrait session with me, it will definitely change the way you see yourself.”
My name is Vanessa, fine art portrait photographer and accredited member of the Australian Professional Photographers Association (AIPP). For over 2 decades, I’ve photographed a lot of people and places, won various awards both national and international and now finally settled into a brand new studio at 5/17 Price Street Nerang on the Gold Coast. Here, I am offering a portrait experience that will result in the most beautiful photos you’ve ever seen of yourself. Whether it’s by yourself, with your mum, kids, sisters, or even grandparents. Whoever it may be, it will be an amazing experience for all involved. I'd be honoured if you allow me to help you reach your portrait goals and create a legacy piece of art for generations to come.

"Turning 50 this year, I decided to get out of my comfort zone, and do something outside the box. I also wanted pictures to remember my age. Vanessa made me feel comfortable from the beginning and I thoroughly enjoyed every second from the dress-ups to the delivery of the pictures!! Highly recommend it".
