Kylie Purtell - Capturing Life: About Me

About Me


Hi There! I'm Kylie and I'm a study in contradictions. Never shy to express my opinion, and then change it. Always pondering the mysteries of life. I will never understand how exactly the internet works and instead prefer my own explanation of it: Magic!

I spend my days capturing life with a camera, in whatever form it takes. I live with my long-suffering love Dave, and our two daughters, Punky and Zee, enjoying our life & laughs in the gorgeous Hawkesbury region, north-west of Sydney.

I used to work for a book importer and distributor, indulging my passion for books & reading and book selling & marketing. Now however, I'm indulging my passion for photography by helping other families document their days and celebrate their big occasions through my business, Kylie Purtell Photography. I graduated from Tafe in 2015, completing my Diploma of Photo Imaging with Distinction, and earning myself an award for Most Outstanding Student. I'm obsessed with anything and everything to do with photography, and you'll find me shooting, editing and refining my technique most days. Thankfully I married a man who is really good at cooking and cleaning, otherwise we'd all be eating breakfast for dinner every other day. Motherhood & running a business doesn't leave much time for that other bothersome stuff!

Along with photography and reading I also love to talk (some would say too much), eat all the food (especially chocolate), watch Peppa Pig and Giggle & Hoot (I have unhealthy crushes on Daddy Pig and Jimmy Giggle), and spend time with my amazing friends and family. Because nothing beats sitting around putting shit on the people you love most.

I have a dream that one day there will be a sarcasm font and it will be good.

  4. The Jimmy Giggle thing only proves that he is worth every cent of the $1.5 million per year the ABC pay him.

    Having just seen "Enough Said" at the cinemas, I would liken the Daddy Pig thing to the James Gandolfini character - sure, he might be a bit of a slob to look at but he's got a heart of gold.

    I really enjoy your blog, and I'd LOVE to see a sarcasm font too!
