Hi! I'm Jacki Starr...
I’m a portrait and lifestyle photographer, graphic designer and visual storyteller
with an eye for detail and (it’s been said) a knack for putting people at ease.
I find myself endlessly inspired by people, their connections and dreams, and compelled to capture them in posed and spontaneous moments. I also create story inspired fine art works, in which your portrait is just the beginning.
Balancing playfulness and professionalism, I ensure our photography session is a collaborative space. When nerves dissolve and self-consciousness subsides, the magic happens as I capture and reflect the essence of who you really are.
My photographs have been described as
"authentic, striking, polished, playful and natural"
If these ideas resonate with you, imagine what we can create together!
Whether it’s to personalise your brand with a professional edge, celebrate a family milestone or tap into the wonder of your child’s imagination, I’ll help you tell your story in away you’ll treasure forever. The possibilities are endless...

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
Jacki currently does all our corporate staff shots. Our staff has never looked so good! Her photos are warm and natural but also very professional. She makes everyone feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera, and the results are amazing. They stand out from any other photos we have ever had taken. Her work is outstanding.”
Marketing Manager Motorola Solutions
We were over the moon with the headshots Jacki did for our team. She is incredibly professional and skilled at making even the most camera-shy feel at ease, and look their best. Everyone commented, “I usually hate getting my photo taken but am so happy with these headshots." Everyone is using their photo internally and externally which is a testament to the end product."
Executive Business Manager, Australia Post
Jacki is not only a wonderful photographer but is very good with people; which is just as important in her role. Jacki has done our corporate photography for many years and has had some tricky customers over this time who do not enjoy having their photos taken. She works extremely well with these people and always manages to produce photography that even the subject is happy with. On a personal note, she has photographed my children, possibly also a tough gig but I was thrilled with the result."
Content and Marketing Specialist at Message Media
Jacki has worked on a number of different jobs for us including business breakfasts, client profile photos plus media, and product launches. Jacki is fabulous to work with - professional, flexible and the quality of her photography is wonderful. We always have positive feedback about Jacki from our clients and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."

I was nervous and self-conscious before my headshot session but Jacki had me feeling comfortable straight away. She's very patient, has a relaxed vibe, and offers gentle encouragement to make sure you feel unruffled and at ease. The resulting photos were all quintessentially me - but better! As a freelancer, my branding is integral to my business and I happily use my headshot around the interweb to promote my services. Jacki has the talent and expertise to makes anyone look natural and fantastic. That's some skill!"

Jacki is not only professional and a terrific photographer but she has the biggest smile ever, which put me completely at ease in front of the lens. I couldn't believe the final result: she really captured my personality and I'm so thankful I turned to her. Can't recommend her enough."

I was fortunate enough to be referred to Jacki from Shooting Starr Photography. Jacki has photographed two major functions for me, and I could not have been happier. Her commitment to the job, level of enthusiasm, professional attitude, and understanding of the brief made our day a lot more enjoyable. Jacki works with ease around her subjects and makes herself fit in and simply gets the job done. The outcome - a great function and absolutely beautiful photos making a lifetime of memories for us.”
