A word from the owner about Lifetime Stories Photography

“Hi! I’am Victoria Burcusel, a maternity and newborn photographer, educator and craftswoman. I want to gift you those moments of serene bliss, tell your story through images of real, precious moments, and portray the love that you have for your children”

Do you want to know my story?

My Studio is located in the small community of Rochedale South,  Brisbane. I am a friendly and funny person, a happy wife, a blessed mom of a 5-year-old boy, and a passionate photographer. When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me teaching other photographers or in my studio, creating original accessories and setups for my photo sessions.


A Romanian daughter, a New Zealand mum and wife, and an Australian home and business owner 

Born in Romania, I emigrated to New Zealand with my husband at the age of 27, then moved to Australia which I now call ‘home’. After years of playing with photography and capturing the best moments of our life, I have decided to focus on newborn photography and become a professional photographer.

My goal became clearer when we moved to New Zealand, as in the process I’ve lost our entire collection of memories. At that moment I felt like I’ve lost my story…and I knew I wasn’t the only one.

Because of my lost journey and of the moments spent away from my family, I have a strong desire to create value for your family. I want to capture those precious moments of love, as you marvel at your baby’s perfection and innocence, and dream of your future together.

And finally, I want you to have your own personalized experience and to decorate your home with your personal art: artwork that matters and that will be enjoyed for years to come, and not art that will be forgotten on a hard drive, on a USB or a cloud.

So, what lights me up?

The look in a mum’s eyes when contemplating their newborn photos, celebrating their amazing bond, their motherhood, and about life itself.

The birth of our children, the feeling of belonging to a family, the legacy we leave to our children, this is what matters most…this is my light.

So, whether I’m photographing your first baby bump, your baby, or your family, I promise to create timeless and beautiful images that speak to you. ‘Cause in the end… it’s more than just an image on the wall; it’s your story.
