About us

I’m Janine, owner/photographer at Be Photography.  I live in East Fremantle with my partner and our blended family, including 3 exuberant children, 2 madcap dogs and a very indulged cat.

As a mum, I understand the unexpected can and will happen when working with children. That’s part of the fun of it.  I favour a natural, relaxed approach that will put you at ease and ensure your images are a true reflection of your family. I steer clear of ‘fads’, props and things that will date your images, preferring a more timeless, classic approach.

Capturing connections and relationships is my passion.  In an era where our memories are hastily snapped iphone images, long ago buried in our hard drives or facebook streams, it’s never been more important to me to document my family, our life, and to provide tangible works of art that our kids can enjoy. These memories are our shared history, and the stories they conjure become the bonds that bind us together as family.

My background in photography stems from my high school studies, on to university to complete a Bachelor of Arts, followed by teaching photography in high schools for several years before establishing Be.  I am always learning, always discovering new things to love about this wonderful artform.   As a member of the AIPP I am bound by a code of professional conduct and a committment to continued learning, ensuring your receive the professional service and expertise your family portraits deserve.
