Hello, I’m Carly – an awarded photographic artist, storyteller and principle photographer at Arotahi Studio.
Here we celebrate human potential, vocation and greatness, and believe that connection, love and acceptance are the greatest experiences. Ever.

Photography has allowed me to meet and work alongside many incredible people throughout Australia and New Zealand, and for this I am grateful.
I have photographed Dancers, Athletes, the Creative and the Colourful; Leaders, Lovers, Entrepreneurs; Movers, Shakers and Dream Makers;
Unique individuals who courageously pursue their passion. Unashamedly. With authentic hearts.
I am so blessed that their stories are now a part of mine.
