About Michelle Kiddie

First and foremost I am the mother of two crazy kids. I know the noise, chaos, laughter, mess, tantrums and sheer frustration that comes with family life. I know that the love you feel for your kids knows no boundaries. I also know that families don’t usually dress in colour coordinating outfits with perfect hair and dazzling smiles all at the same time.

So I strive to make beautiful images from the small moments that mean so much - a spontaneous cuddle, the pride in a parent’s eyes, a big brother’s kiss for his new baby sister, belly laughing….all the things that usually happen when you’re at home, and free to be yourselves.

Before becoming a photographer I studied journalism and photography at Curtin University and worked as a journalist for newspapers and magazines. In 2008 I started photographing weddings and later became a family photographer as well. But my passion lies with creating these fleeting but such precious moments as a documentary family photographer.
