My name is Koroli Magourilos, I’m an Adelaide natural light photographer specialising in creative, fine art portraiture of newborns, babies, children and their families.
I am married to my best friend and childhood sweetheart and we have 5 beautiful children together who are my driving inspirations behind my passion.
Looking through a camera has made me see life in a completely different way. It isolates all that is going on around me and makes me completely focus on what's right there in front of me. On what’s important! Something that is difficult in our everyday, hectic lives. It forces people to examine the details of the scene from a different angle, noticing a child's hand grasping a flower, a child's tear on their cheek, feet so small and tiny.
Photography has always interested me, but it really came alive for me after the birth of my first son. I didn’t want to miss a moment of him growing up, and as most parents know, children grow up way too fast!
Every look, every smile, changes so much every day! I became interested in portraiture because I really wanted to freeze those moments. To make them stand still. That time, that person, that place, unchanging in the photograph.
My business is based around capturing that for you. Finding that one moment... whether it is in the studio with your kids, dancing outside at sunset, or connections captured outside under a tree. I thrive on making that one moment, more than just a moment. It’s amazing how photos can trigger such a strong emotional response in us and I’m thankful everyday that I am the one who can capture that moment, that piece in time that you can always look back on and remember. I feel truly blessed to be doing what I love everyday!
I also believe it's very important for you to know who it is working with your precious children. I want you to feel safe in knowing that I have my Bachelor in Early Childhood Education, so I specifically studied newborns to eight year olds at university. I am also a qualified teacher so I have a current police check, I'm a mandatory notifier and I also have my first aid certificate. I also get my whooping cough booster to protect your newborns.
I can't wait to be a part of your memories. Finding what is dear to you, and keeping it from slipping away... if only in a photograph
