Simone Hanckel has forged a reputation over the last fifteen years in for her stunning, nostalgic view of childhood. Her passion for capturing the joy of child’s play has led her to a wonderful, award-winning career with her artwork proudly on display in countless homes across Adelaide.
Simone works exclusively in black and white photographic art, which is both evocative of a time gone by and an incredibly stylish addition to any home.




My philosophy is simple. Your story, plus my vision to create incredible portraits. I really resonate with all that it means to be a parent. The good, not so good, and sleepless nights. I have loved it all (really!) and I just love getting to know a family and capturing the moments and milestones that hold the most meaning.

Your sitting will be tailored to you, with the location, timing and special requests all taken into account. The best photographs are made when clients let me see their bond with their children and the little things that make your family unique. To help you choose your photographs I come to your home to help you plan how you will display your portraits. With many years of experience, access to all of the beautiful professional display options on offer and a passion for interior design you can rest assured that you will hang the right photographs in the right space and enjoy them for many years to come.

Your photographs will be printed with care, transformed into beautiful heirloom albums and wall art and will stand the test of time so that your grandchildren will one day cherish them too.  It's my hope that portraits will make you smile and sigh every time you walk past them, and your children will be fighting you for them when they leave home! These photographs will be a beautiful reminder of their childhood.
