Bloom Photography Portrait Studio is located at 6 George Hely Cresent, Killarney Vale on the Central Coast of NSW.
Director Shannon Cotterill has a long history and a love of photography. Shannon founded Bloom Photography in 2002, and ran the portrait & wedding business from home while raising her three young children.
She then started with a small studio at Bay Village, Bateau Bay in 2007 but quickly outgrew the premises and relocated to the corner of Norton Avenue & Wyong Road Killarney Vale until August 2013
From there Shannon & her husband Anthony had the opportunity to relocate to a new premises, just around the corner! There they have created a spacious, professional and inviting studio that is all about making people feel relaxed and at home.
Shannon also has a great team working with her:
Wedding Photographer Sol Towson worked as Shannon’s wedding assistant since 2006 while completing his studies, before branching out and shooting weddings exclusively for Bloom in 2009. He has proven to be a fantastic, fun and enthusiastic member of the wedding team. Clients love his style and creativity, and Shannon is very happy to have him on board as a member of the Bloom family!
Studio portrait photographer Kat Martin has extensive experience photographing preschool aged children - so we love having her at the studio, if Kat can't make a child smile then no one can! Kat is a very talented & creative photographer and also shoots weddings. We feel very lucky to have her as part of Bloom :)
Studio assistant Nadina Jones has been a part of Bloom for many years now & has a wealth of experience helping out at the studio for portrait sessions and as a second photographer at weddings. Nadina has an eye for detail & is an essential part of the Bloom team.
Shannon's husband / business partner Anthony Cotterill also has a great eye for photography, and will often be the second shooter at weddings. Anthony really is the backbone of Bloom, doing a lot of the work that goes on behind the scenes, and building the never ending list of ideas that Shannon comes up with for the portrait studio!
