Up with the birds, out with the boys from Hillside Security again this morning, I must really love my job!!!!! Thanks for breakfast, with a full belly off to begins my first selection making it easy for them to choose. One of the great things about working with the same company is the good laugh, the trust built and I can say no!!!!! With a smile of course. I do love the creative input though!!!!
My 4th shoot with them. A company that knows the value of online presence and keeping their website up to date.
I hope someone was out shoot the sunrise this morning, spectacular clouds and cleared up just as we were wrapping up. A great location for corporate photography.

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours with Angela from Angela Manno Couture.

Just beautiful work and of high quality.

How do i know this? well my mum has been sewing ever since she was a little girl, she taught me many things and I did sewing studies for a few years.

Angela is meticulous with every stitch, this can be seen in her finished work, her designs are just gorgeous, custom made for you.

Silvia Tomarchio Accredited Professional Photographer


I did it!

Dreams come true by having a goal, staying focused and doing the work. A lot of work!

After years of lots of hard work, dedication and persistence on my photography journey,

I can now say “yes” when asked if i am a professional photographer, while up until now i replied with “emerging photographer.”

Self taught  and near completion of formal training, i am pleased to be acknowledged as a professional photographer by the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). It sure does feel good!

I have chosen the round logo, to me it’s the circle that never ends, a reminder to continue growing and learning.

When you are green you grown when you are ripe you rot.

Lucky for me I love learning and learning makes me happy.

Thank you to all the people that have taught me along the way, encouraged and believed in me, makes my journey sweeter.  Paying it forward by helping others …….

Thanks to all who have enjoyed my work thus far…The best is yet to come.

Every woman deserves a super hero!

More wedding fun with this great bridal party down Williamstown.

Congratulations Teresa and Rob!


An absolutely amazing day with Teresa, Rob and their fun filled fantastic bridal party.

We started off at the grooms place, no short of a good laugh, these guys were a “one liner a minute”, then headed over to the brides, everyone of them just beautiful in every way. I love the way they all helped each other and showered the bride with attention and affection, just beautiful.

The ceremony was at St Bernadette’s Church in Sunshine, a beautiful ceremony and service, the happiest family and friends all is one room!

With a beautiful sunny day we headed off to Williamstown for their photoshoot, I loved the super hero theme, it was so wonderful to photograph them being themselves having a good laugh.

Their reception and celebrations were held at Sheldon Reception and Convention Centre in Sunshine where their celebrations continued.

A big congratulations to you both and thank you for allowing Silvia Tomarchio Wedding Photographer to capture and be part of your fun and special day! Along with your important list of special people the be photographed, a fun bridal party happy to go with the flow, creating your very own unique wedding and memories for years to come. It really was an honour and a great day full of love and laughter.

A Gift of love, it’s the thought that counts, always……….


It was my birthday recently and my girls asked what I wanted and my reply is always the same for every occasion, “A love letter, lots of kisses and a family portrait. I love our family portraits! for about 5 years in a row, I would set up the camera and hand the remote to my youngest, now 8, her arm extended out on a mission, they are always fun and much laughter in every special photo we have together. At Silvia Tomarchio Photography, we are all about family and family is everything. A very special gift.jar-of-kisses

My girls got extra creative this year and found me chocolates called Kisses, It really is the thought that counts.

Her Hands

I was looking for a particular image earlier and I came across this, one of my very very early street photography shots, this was in Sunshine..a little scary for me to go back and shoot again.

I wish i photographed her face too now.

I do love hands of another, much like the lines on ones face, each telling its own story….they can hurt and heal, Build and destroy. The choice is ours to make.hands.jpg

Our Mama’s Hands
by Marcella L. True

I saw you looking at your hands with disgust
You hate them now and hide them you must
But mama, there’s no shame in hands so worn
Because all they’ve touched since you were born

You say you hate them ‘cause they’re so frail,
So veined and aged and red, not pale
You don’t remember how much they’ve done
To bring the 5 of us to who we’ve become

You don’t remember the love they’ve shown
The tireless tending to us we’ve known
To tying the shoes and showing us how
To guiding us through all we know now

You don’t remember they’ve nurtured us well
That they soothed us so tenderly when we fell
That they hugged and held us when we were hurt
That they scrubbed and cleaned us of the dirt

You don’t remember that they wiped our tears
That they gave us a refuge from our fears
That they washed and doctored our injured knees
And they offered a tissue when we sneezed

You have no reason to hate them now
Without those hands we would not know how
To use our own hands as you once did
To soothe and nurture and worries to rid

We can hopefully teach our young ones now
That our hands are special and that somehow
It all began with your loving hands
They are so special and that’s how it stands
Mama, don’t hate them, ‘cause they’re etched with love
And Daddy’s patiently waiting to hold them, up above
