About  Myself


My name is Setsuko Hobart. 

I am originally from Japan and have been on the Gold Coast for the past16years.

As a wife and Mother of two energetic boys, my life is very active, which I enjoy as it gives me the opportunity to meet a lot of new people.


Prior to moving to Australia, I was a international tour guide and used to work all around the world. 

I have a passion for travel, and love experiencing different cultures and meeting new people with different backgrounds.


One of the things I love most about working as a photographer is that I get to know the people I am photographing, and my intuitive nature and photographic skills allow me to capture the true personalities of those people in my portraits.

I feel that it's so important to take photographs and to be a photographer because I love capturing moments that will never happen again.

My photographic style is a beautiful blend of both candid and posed portraits.

Throughout my life, I have been engaged, married, pregnant and a mother, so I use these experiences to help me to create incredible photographs and capture special moments for my clients.

The photos that I love having my own family ( or wish that I had captured) form a canvas for the experienceI give to my clients, -- the tiny details if a baby's hands, or the wistful and romantic glances of a couple in love.

I love to talk with my clients prior to our session about what their own hopes and ideas are for our time together.

Ironically, both of my boys are reluctant models and don't like to be photographed so this has allowed me to develop a sense of patience and quiet determination to persevere and wait for the right moment to capture that perfect shot.

So Please don't worry if your little ones are not so cooperative during the session -- be patient, and

we will find those magical moments to capture together.

Photographs last for generations, and I can't wait for us to work together to capture those special memories and moments that you can cherish for years to come.


Please get in touch with me to discuss how we can create a beautiful and memorable session,

just for you.

Thank you. x
