how did i end up loving preschools!!!
Twenty years on and my passion for photography still grows each day. As an artist all my life photography became my passion, I remember as a child in awe as I watched my Italian born Grandfather spend hours printing in the darkroom of his home and hand painting them with watercolour.
As I got older my art became more expressive and even a bit wacky at times!! I was always painting, drawing, sculpting or taking photos. My work was very expressive and pushing boundaries and I began to conform to what I thought people expected when paying money for a photo, this never sat well with me but I tried to get on with it to make that dream of becoming a professional photographer reality.
Slowly I was suffocating and assumed that for my business to grow my photos had to become more stereotypical (a word I avoid)!! I knew I would lose my love for photography if I had to put limits on my creativity to make a living out of my love. Even the thought of charging money for my work I believed was a crime, art in my eyes was like lovemoney cant buy it nor should you have to pay for it. That was hard to get my head around and still is.
I always loved portrait photography but was never interested in school photography as my memories from a child and the stale stigma school photography held was not something I wanted my photography to represent.
Slowly doors opened that led me to preschool photography. Years ago a preschool approached me to photograph their annual school photography, all I thought was this is the beginning of the end but I took the leap and I convinced myself that this would be ok to do and agreed to take on the job.
After the week of cute kids, liaising with teachers and parents I realised that my photography style was something that I could combine with preschool photography. I felt creativity to the photos is what the niche market was missing. Why did a child have to be sitting nice and tall, smiling and looking straight down the lens and looking perfectly clean, dressed to the nines, why did everything have to be so pre determined.
I was a little concerned that parents and the school would be disappointed when they saw my style and approach combined in their childs final product plus they were spending their hard earned money and trusting the way I visioned their child.
To my surprise the response was mind blowing! It was and gave me drive that you could not pay for to know my art was loved.
I believe I from that moment found my niche of the art I have been a passionate slave to all my life.

Cathie , Central Shoalhaven Mobile Preschool
‘We had Red Cherry Photography attend our 4 venues last year and have nothing but positive feedback from our parents. The parents loved the quality of the pictures and the reasonable pricing, the individual posing of each child was fabulous, no negative feedback. Staff especially noticed Molly’s handling of timid children; she managed this beautifully and took the time with each child. We are looking forward to this year’s preschool photos in term 4. Molly is very easy to work with and always accommodating, we highly recommend Red Cherry Photography, fantastic work Molly!
Kate and Simon,
Hi, We just got back preschool photos from Gumnut in Milton. You photographed our son Toby and the photo is amazing. We never manage to capture that natural gorgeous smile but you got it! Thank you! The photo is lovely.

‘Without fuss or bother Molly captured the children, using the outdoor environment in a relaxed situation. Her interactions with the children allowed the sessions to be a very positive experience.’
