Hey! I’m Lib. I am a professional AIPP Accredited photographer living in Queanbeyan (just outside of Canberra, ACT) with my husband, two daughters and our super-cute Rottweiler, Kora. We previously had a Great Dane and Alaskan Malamute, so obviously we love big dogs!
I grew up in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. After school I studied Graphic Design. I worked for advertising agencies and design studios in Sydney until we decided to start a family. After having my first child I moved with my new little family to Queanbeyan, the big town which shares it’s border with Canberra.
I found it challenging being a stay-at-home mum. I suffered terrible sleep-deprivation induced depression and was struggling to find joy in my everyday life. This is when I discovered photography…or photography found me! I started photographing my two crazy girls and found great joy in being creative again. I studied and learnt everything I could about photography, it was like the missing puzzle piece that I had been searching for – I was quickly addicted.
Soon after that, I decided to start my own business, Lib Creative. I am so grateful that my passion has grown into a rewarding career. But photography is so much more than just a business to me. It has been my therapy, brought me joy and happiness – so most importantly I always aim to create something meaningful every time I pick up my camera and use photography to bring happiness to others.
It is for these reasons I also volunteer my time & skills as a photographer, to a number of amazing charity organisations, including Heartfelt, ACT Rescue & Foster and Rise Above, Women of Queanbeyan Calendar. Supporting my business allows me to continue to contribute to great causes like these!
I am also a qualified graphic designer and you can check out the other half of my business here at branding.libcreative.com.au – helping small businesses succeed through professional & effective branding!
