Mikaela is an Australian documentary and fine art photographer, based in South Florida, USA.

Before picking up a camera professionally, Mikaela was an actor and filmmaker. This work and practice is very much at play in her photography. She is interested in the ways we confront our own fragility and wonder; both from within, and through the people and spaces we inhabit.

Much of Mikaela’s work explores her relationship with her two young daughters, featured most recently in her ongoing project “Good Lord, leave your Mother alone”.

Mikaela’s work has been published, awarded, and exhibited both locally and internationally. Commercial work includes Apple (No one else yet, but it’s a solid start). She has spent the last few pandemic months obsessing over pinhole photography and DIY darkrooms. And The Sopranos. 

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
