Where to hold your Session


For newborn photography up until 1 month old I recommend a studio newborn session in my home studio at Fairy Hill.

By holding your session indoors in a controlled and safe environment we can ensure the correct temperature, enough feeding and settling time, prevent sun & wind exposure and mum & dad can have some time to rest in a comfortable setting knowing their baby is safe right there beside them.


For absolutely every other session I love to use beautiful outdoors locations to bring colour and life to your family images.

I love to use nature to frame your beautiful portraits and its fantastic capturing kids playing and exploring on location. Even older newborn sessions work wonderfully in select locations.


The location of your session is entirely up to you and your family. I want you to select a location that is special to your family, a spot that represents you as a family, a spot that bonds you, that you visit or that you just love aesthetically. 


If you have a location in mind I would love to know. Family farms or favourite beach sides make for incredible locations as they hold such significance to your family.


Otherwise if your not sure on the best location I have a vast array of locations that you can choose from.


When you book your session I will email you my location guide that lists all the wonderful locations in Northern NSW that I use.


Your guide will feature many lovely photo examples of each location I use in each town and includes many beaches, headlands, lookouts, forests, bush, urban & street scapes.


Each location has details on what times of the year are best so you can choose the best location for your family.
