Hello. I’m Vannessa… that’s Vannessa with TWO n’s.


Hello, I’m Vannessa...that’s Vannessa with two n’s. I carry my wonderful mother’s name, Anne, in my name...a gift from her.

I am a proud mother to two awesome and crazy kids; Harrison and Evie and they are my world. I am also married to the most amazing husband and best friend anyone could ask for. I love him more than I ever thought I could and watching him everyday with our kids is one of my greatest joys.

I love being a photographer. I would have never dreamt that I would find a job that I love this much. I am inspired everyday by the connections people have with those they love. Whether it’s an expecting mother, the joyous occasion of birth, or a busy growing family, I take pride in capturing those real and genuine moments, those moments that we want to hold on to forever. After witnessing my first birth in 2012, I was hooked. It is an immense honour to document one’s birth, to capture something so real, so powerful and so awe inspiring. I feel so blessed to do what I do. I absolutely love birth and I think it is the most beautiful day in a couple’s life.

I have photographed more than 80 birth stories at every hospital in the city, at the birth centre, in the operating room, in bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms and with every midwifery clinic.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I am so happy you are here. I look forward to capturing your story.

Much love,
Vannessa Brown
