OUR GUEST SPEAKERS
Selena Rollason is a passionate photographer, mentor and inspirational speaker from Stafford Heights in Brisbane, who has built a full time career changing lives with her beautiful images of childbirth, fresh48, in hospital and lifestyle family moments.
Known internationally for her award winning work, her powerful documentary images beautifully capture some of the most raw and special moments that families share when they welcome a new baby. She has achieved multiple International, National and State Photography Titles in less than 5 years – from 2 x 1st places, 2 x 2nd places and a 3rd place in the Photojournalism category at the WPPI annual print competition, to 2 times Australian Birth Photographer of the Year, Queensland Birth, Travel and Documentary Photographer of the Year titles.....and most recently winning the overall 2018 Queensland Professional Photographer of the Year.
Selena is very passionate about changing lives and this certainly shows through both in her work and in her inspirational and motivational speaking roles. As a mother of 4, Selena speaks to the role that photographs are having in changing the way that women see themselves, their births and their first weeks as mothers. She is helping to reverse societal perceptions around motherhood, and assisting women to heal from birth trauma - showing women that the birth and postpartum period is an important part of who we are, and something to be truly celebrated and cherished.
