Meet Kerri

Welcome to Kerri Goldsmith Photography (previously known as Kerri Donsky Photography).

I’m a daughter – a sister – a wife to my ever so supportive husband – a Mum and step-Mum – a Nana to the most adorable little boy & three girls – and also have 2 very spoilt fur babies.

Photography has been my passion since getting my first camera around 12 years old and my family always knew me for having a camera in hand. I started my little business back in 2012 and capturing special memories for clients to treasure always is my greatest wish. Hence my motto – Capturing the Moment, the Memory, and the Emotion.

I have a background in nursing and midwifery and just love babies!!! Hence very comfortable with babies and children, with their safety always of the utmost importance during any session. I have spent many years training in posing newborns and editing to be able to produce beautiful heirlooms for you. I’m proud to say I’m also an international award-winning photographer. I am up to date with vaccinations as your family’s safety is very important to me.

I’m a member of the Professional Photographers’ Association Queensland as a Certified Professional Photographer.
I am also a Certified Newborn Photographer – The Academy of Newborn Photography.

I just love my job 🥰

I specialize in newborn photography & love to capture these memories not long after coming home from hospital while so tiny and only offer these sessions in my home studio. I then love to capture your little one’s growing through their 1st year milestones – Sitter & 1st Birthday, along with special events like Christmas. A maternity session will record that beautiful bump that holds a miracle within.

I also love to capture special memories of children and also don’t forget yourself with a family session – so many times we focus on our children and as a parent, we forget to include ourselves, your children want to remember you with them as they grow up.

My home studio is based in Wishart – on the southside of Brisbane and travels for on-location sessions.

Thank you for visiting my website, enjoy and I look forward to capturing special memories for you.

Kerri
