Magazine style photography sessions, Boudoir, Headshots, Fine Art Photographer. Let's bring out the best version of you!
“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 have just moved 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.

I can’t thank Vanessa enough! This whole experience has been an investment in my self-confidence after a rough couple of years. Not only was my session fun, creative and exciting, but my portfolio is spectacular. I’ll never regret letting Vanessa capture every aspect of my personality on camera. I’m beyond thrilled and recommend you give yourself the same gift x

I highly, highly, highly recommend Vanessa van Straaten, as she is such a professional, warm & friendly photographer. Vanessa would have to be one of the very few photographers where I have felt so relaxed to be around. Vanessa take's the time to get to know us before she commences her work, and when she does there is no stress. I can't wait to bring our daughter for her photo shoot. We love our big beautiful smiling fur baby and Vanessa really brought that out in him. Thank you.

I came across Vanessa at the Gold Coast small Business Expo and asked if she could do a photo shoot for me before I had my double mastectomy due to a Breast Cancer diagnosis. Vanessa was incredible and very supportive of me in my situation and had a great amount of empathy as we did the photo shoot. The photos taken will be treasured forever as a reminder of who I was prior to my surgery! I would highly recommend Vanessa for anyone who wants to create a photo album with such a personal and meaningful touch. I will treasure these images forever moving forward with my life, after my surgery now. Thank you so, so much Vanessa for being so responsive to my needs. I love all the images!!!
