About


Well, let's be honest here as I'm a rather informal person and you have already made your way to my corner of the interwebs, I'm Safauna (I know, you were expecting June weren't you?). I've been a photographer for 5 years although Hello June is my newest endeavour. After working under my own name for many years I decided that a change in business was required to reflect the large changes I had had in my own personal life. But "who" am I? I'm a mother, a daughter, a sister, colour obsessed, loud, a bit ridiculous, teller of corny jokes, and a retro junky. And may I say I am very pleased to meet you.

And my photography? Influenced and inspired by the fashion, styling, and imagery of times begone (more specifically the 1920's-1960's). Since I was a child I have been madly in love with Vargas paintings and as I got older I grew to love the combination of retro imagery with a modern flare. Pinups with tattoos? Sign me up. An adorable greaser couple sharing a private moment in front of some modern urban 
architecture? Swoon. My images are designed to mimic film photography and to give a sense of nostalgia. I direct my couples but don't worry, laughter and enjoyment is key. I want your session to be a positive experience that you will remember with a fondness when you look at your images.
