Hi, I'm Tess Godkin.

I’ve always had a love for art and design and 10 years ago while feeling a little lost in my desk job as an urban designer I decided that I wanted to be a photographer…. I’m pretty sure everyone thought I was crazy throwing in my architecture degree and a pretty cushy job to start all over again. But alas, I went back to studying, finished a degree in Photography, started my own business and now here I am and I’ve never looked back! I love it!

In my spare time I love entertaining at home with my family and friends, baking sweets, lazing about in the summer sun, skiing in winter, gardening and growing our own food and flowers, travelling overseas, drinking tea, dining out in great cafes and restaurants and designing and decorating our home.

So now that you know a little about me I’d love to create some images for you that best reflect you, your family or your business. Get in touch via the contact form.
