I want women to take up space in our culture. I want us to tell our stories. I want us to cultivate the visibility we need to grow our businesses.    
I want you to have the evocative, authentic, storytelling images you need to easily show up and do that, day in and day out.
And while we take those photos, I want you to be witnessed.             
I want to fill your cup.                   
I want to remind you of where you came from and who you are.
I do not want you to have to perform a character -- in your photos, online, or anywhere.
I want you to be able to show up in your business (and for us!) as yourself.
I want you to catch a glimpse of the magic the rest of us see when we see you.
All of you.

MANIFESTO

It’s time for a photo shoot. You’re launching something. Your creative director says you need content.
We’re the pros and we’ll get every shot on the shot list...
I will delight you with details and photos that don’t look like anyone else’s.
Your team will no longer need stock photos because you’ll have a massive archive of custom images that are deeply personal and saturated with feeling.
People who know you will see them and RECOGNIZE you.
People who don’t know you will see them and GET you.
your images will match the depth of your work
It’s not just a photo shoot.
I create an experience that honours all of you.

All of You

"I am thrilled with the results and the photos are resonating with people and my potential clients in a powerful way. I can trace a direct line of increased sales, enrollment in my courses and social media engagement to the integrity and accessibility that my new photos have provided."

Terri Cole

"There will be a magic moment when
I look through my lens and catch my breath because there you are --
in all your magnificence, goofiness, intelligence, you’i’ness.
Who am I kidding? There will be lots of moments like that."

I believe in being relentlessly loyal, generous and curious, even when it is risky. Nothing gives me more pleasure then working with a brand as if I were a member of that team and sharing everything I have learned, the successes and the setbacks, the highs and the lows. It all belongs and it all inspires.

I have spent the last 12 years as a photographer building a network of people with shared values and interests. Being relentlessly loyal, generous and curious opened up a new passion in me for mentoring women. In 2016, I launched two new women-centered businesses, just months before being diagnosed with breast cancer. My regular routine of coffee with friends, photographing beautiful young couples and loving families, traveling around the world on adventures, and being on the mountain with my kids quickly became doctor visits, surgeries, strict diets, chemotherapy, hospitals, and injections.

Being forced to slow down and take care of my health, the same thought kept coming back; the thought that I could link the exact path of people and moments that moved me ahead in my career and life to actual experiences and meaningful conversations. I knew if I returned to photography, I wanted to pass that on. I wanted to talk and connect, inspire and encourage, even help with healing things that keep people from living full and genuine lives. 





About Anastasia

Anastasia Creative was born out of this time, I help businesses create authentic content and tell fearless stories to connect them with the people who will appreciate their work the most. I believe with everything that I am, and everything that I have been through that this is my life’s work. Helping women to be visible. Showing people how others see them. I fell in love with photography all over again with the ALL OF YOU sessions– mostly because I found a way to pair it with another passion – collaborating with women entrepreneurs, coaching, mentoring and empowering people to take the life-changing step of following their truth.

I see you. I see you whether you’re just starting out, trying to change direction, upleveling your current branding or just finding your way back to someone you used to be.

You’ve never been more beautiful than you are this moment.

As a freelance stylist and creative director, Jessie collects and arranges things to tell visual stories - stories about incredible people and the original things they create - stories about the memories you make and the people you make them with.

Ever since she can remember, Jessie has been tinkering and rearranging her surroundings to enhance their beauty. Inevitably this led her to design school, where Jessie found her everything in the art of creating atmosphere - atmosphere that inspires your senses and makes you feel something beyond the ordinary. 

Shortlisted for the Vogue scholarship in her graduating year, Jessie moved on to work as an assistant stylist for one of Australia’s leading photographer/stylists. During this time Jessie worked on projects for Disney, Australia’s Next Top Model, Foxtel and dressed numerous Australian celebrities for events and premiers, to name a few.

As a professional stylist, Jessie's intention is to make you feel authentically beautiful and excited by your brand and the products or services you’ve created.

Chrystal began her career after graduating from a fashion design program in Toronto. She has styled countless shoots, including wardrobe + prop styling, working on all aspects of creative projects with makeup application + skin as her passion.

Her fascination with color theory + how it can be applied to create a seamless complexion, enhancing features + correcting others spurred her love of makeup + skin. Her desire to empower her clients through education… “when you look good, you feel good” is how she approaches her art encompassing skin + learning how to achieve happy skin through an integrated approach to diet + lifestyle. She has coached several hundred clients toward healthy, glowing skin. 

In 2014 she designed a skincare brand that focuses on the same approach with a selection of simple products made with whole ingredients, free from synthetics, fillers + preservatives.

She is passionate about style, being outdoors + the paradigm shift that is happening in the world currently.

If you connect with what you’ve seen here on the site, I hope you reach out with a hello and some details about you. Maybe we’ll discover that we love the same brand of coffee or grew up in a similar neighbourhood. Maybe we’ve travelled to the same destinations or just seen the same views from the same coffee shop windows. Connecting with you and how you see the world is where great stories begin and perhaps the reason so many friends become clients and so many clients become friends.
