At RJN Photography we love nothing more than to capture you just exactly as you are. The raw, real, true essence of who YOU are as a family. YOUR story. After all, it is completely unique to you. And worth telling. For your family and friends now, and for generations to come.
We work with you to choose the best location for your session – whether it be in our natural light studio in Christies Beach, an outdoor location, or your own home. The images we lovingly produce for you will be natural and beautiful, enhanced just enough to bring out the beauty and essence of the moment. And together we can find the best way to turn those images into beautiful heirlooms, that will be treasured by your family forever.
Beck is the owner-operator, and primary photographer, at RJN Photography.
Beck is a portrait and lifestyle photographer, specialising in natural light photography. Her greatest love in life is to capture stories. Those precious and candid moments between loved ones. The anticipation of a new arrival, the moment of birth, the early days with your newborn, the milestones of your growing baby, the love and connection between the members of your family, and each of your unique personalities.
Beck has been blessed with a big heart and a lot of patience, and loves nothing more than the hustle and bustle of normal everyday family life. She has four of her own children, ranging from pre-schooler to teen, so there’s not much left to surprise her when it comes to children and their ways! She always says “With me, you can all relax and be yourselves. Because that’s exactly what I love to capture!”
She has trained in makeup and beauty for two years at TAFE SA, and has also had a year’s experience with us in the studio in 2017.
Saoirse is able to apply beautiful makeup to people of all ages, and very often receives compliments on her work. She is able to do very natural looks, for those not used to makeup, or she can really glam it up for those that love it.
Saoirse comes from a large family, and being the eldest of her siblings is very caring, hard-working, and responsible. And she also knows how to have fun as well, which is very important to our culture here at RJN Photography.
You will meet Saoirse if you have makeup for your maternity or head shot session, or if you treat yourself to a Pamper & Portrait Session in the studio.
Harriet is Beck’s second child, and eldest daughter. She assists Beck during sessions on the weekend, and during school holidays. At nearly fourteen, she has two years of experience in this role.
Harriet is especially good with small children, and getting them to look at and smile for the camera. She is also excellent at occupying children while they are not being photographed.
A lot of people ask if she would like to be a photographer like her mum, but Harriet is actually a brilliant artist in her own right. She draws amazing cartoon-style drawings, and is starting to learn animation, and would love to study this after school.
Ellen is a talented hair and makeup artist, with two decades of experience. She studied hair, makeup, and beauty at TAFE SA, and has worked in salons here and in America.
Ellen’s main influence, when it comes to hair and makeup, is Hollywood Glamour, which fits in perfectly with what we do here at RJN Photography. Her attention to detail is second to none, and her work is beautiful.
Organised and professional, Ellen also has a wicked sense of humour which keeps all of us on our toes! She is a joy to work with, and you will have a blast if she is your hair and makeup artist for your Pamper and Portrait or maternity session.
Vicki is somewhat of a “right hand woman” for Beck, assisting with her with all kinds of tasks. She helps Beck on weekday photo shoots, and can often be found holding a reflector or settling a newborn.
Often when you get a reply to an email, it will be Vicki that has responded. As well as this, she helps Beck keep on top of her social media. Which is a full-time job in itself!
Vicki is a savvy business woman in her own right, with a proven track record in direct sales, which comes in handy when she advises Beck on marketing and business planning. Together she and Beck are also SeneGence Distributors, selling the amazing vegan smudge proof lip colour LipSense. Which you will get to try, if you have makeup for your session.
Vicki also has a beautiful up-beat nature, which fits in well here at RJN Photography.
