Meet the lovely ladies behind Sherbet Birdie
Sasha Dobies – Chief Birdie & Photographer
Sasha started Sherbet Birdie Photography in 2008, after she saw the reactions of all her friends to pictures of women in magazines and how her friends negatively judged themselves according to those pictures.
Having worked in the magazine publishing industry for most of her career, Sasha knew how much professional styling, skilled camera work and pose direction these women received in order to produce such sensational photos, as well as how much pampering and glamour these women experienced during their shoot.
Due to this, Sasha wanted to start providing everyday women with the same experience, to allow all women to have such a great experience, just as the celebrities do.
Having previously experienced her own vintage photoshoot and being thrilled with the results of having these timeless photos of herself, Sasha decided to focus her business’ attention on the pin up and vintage sector.
And so Sherbet Birdie was born.
Sasha’s dream is for her Sherbet Birdie family to experience a fairytale every time they come in contact with her service.
Quality is of uttermost important for Sasha, hence why she is known as the premium pin up & vintage photographer in Australia.
Besides that…this Chief Birdie loves spending quality time with her partner of 12 years, eating…non stop (food is just the ultimate pleasure), laughing a lot and having a great time.
Oh…and yes…she’s a workaholic ;)
We love you Sasha!
Lucy Topp – Number 1 Birdie Makeup & Hair Artist
This Birdie speaks…
“When I was three years old, my Mother gave me a tube of red lipstick and from that moment, to this very day I have been passionate about makeup. I love the ability of makeup to easily transform and uplift your spirits and I truly believe that if you look good, you feel good!
I grew up watching all the old movies, where I fell in love with Marilyn and Audrey and all the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood. As a young child and teenager, I set up a makeup chair in my room and ‘made over’ everyone I could get my hands on! As time went on I found myself doing makeup for School Musicals, Parties, Formals and Weddings.
During several years of modelling, I learnt many tips and tricks of the trade; from many different professional makeup artists. When I decided to turn my passion into a career, I trained with the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy and started freelancing through various salons.
I volunteer and present workshops for ‘Look Good, Feel Better’. This is a program run in hospitals worldwide, to help women deal with the effects of treatment for Cancer. I feel so blessed to have fulfilled my child-hood passion and dreams of being a Makeup Artist and helping women to feel good about the way they look.
I love seeing the happy sparkle in my satisfied, client’s eyes and I love playing a part, in making your special day just a bit more perfect!”
