Kia Ora, I’m Qiane! (pronounced Key-Ah-Ne)
Don’t worry if you get my name wrong, I have had a lifetime of mispronunciations. Once we get to know each other a little better you will see its pretty easy to say. My mum named me and I love to tell people it came from her imagination. She’s pretty clever my mum.
The unique and individual nature of my name has dictated how I try to live my life – I carve my own path and I am quite driven (I was a magazine editor by the time I was 23 and started Qiane Media + Photography at 26). I come from a small, close-knit family that is full of love and laughter. But, that has become significantly bigger over the years as I married into a family with 11 children! Yes, my gorgeous husband is one of 11 boys and sits smack bang in the middle at number 6!
My family rocks my socks and I guess that is a big part of what what drives me to document life. I want to have a visual memory of moments, time, emotions and, most importantly, people. I want you to have that too.
Telling stories is my passion and doing it through photography is my gift. My philosophy is simple, it is to take beautiful images of your love, your moments and your unique essence so you can remember it for a lifetime.
I am a bit of a dreamer. Music, art, nature, people and culture inspire me. I am married to my soul mate. He is my best friend, and there is no safer place in this world than in his arms. He’s pretty special and has shown me that no matter what life throws at you, don’t sweat the small stuff, embrace the crazy and keep smiling!
I live in Auckland and travelling is one of my greatest passions… don’t get me started on how excited I would be if you wanted me to travel abroad to document your story!
