One Acorn Photography

Kim is a Melbourne based lifestyle portrait photographer. 

Kim specializes in family, couples and children photography. She takes great pride in capturing the true personality and authenticity of her clients through the creative art of photography.  Allowing her clients to share their individual story and preserve a piece of their own history.  She also makes every effort to ensure her clients feel comfortable and relaxed so that they have a fun and memorable session.

Kim’s life began in Vietnam, born in Saigon she lived there for 2 years until she came to Australia with her parents, brother and sister.  She attended both primary school and high school in Melbourne and continued her studies in Hospitality only later to realise that it was not for her.  She worked a few more jobs before realising that photography was her true calling.

Kim’s love for photography became an obsession when she had her first born (over 18 years ago) and only grew with the birth of her next 2 children.  Capturing their first steps, first bad haircut and all their other memorable milestones.  She wanted each of her children to have memories of a life filled with laughter, silliness, and achievements and not to forget all those embarrassing moments -  So they too can one day share their own humble beginnings with they future family.

Having raised 3 children of her own Kim understands first hand the joy, laughter, embarrassing moments, sleepless nights, tears and tantrums that go hand in hand with raising children.  Kim understands FAMILY!  So who better than to capture these magical moments than someone who is a mother herself!

Besides her love for photography Kim has a great love for her family and friends.  She is also totally obsessed with hot chocolates, addicted to shopping and laughs at her own jokes.  Oh and she eats way too many cupcakes.  

When she is not out shooting and creating memories, you will find her hanging out with her loved ones and having a great laugh and enjoying the blessings in her life.

Her biggest inspiration comes from her family.  Justin her husband of 19 years and her three beautiful children, Matthew 18, Jaiden 14, and Kaitlin 10.  Each one of them serves as a daily reminder to her about the importance of celebrating the little things in life.

A life without moments captured is a future without memories.
