  • Andy, Gerringong

Orla spent a lot of time helping me select pictures that complimented each other to be hung on my walls at home. The only problem I encountered was deciding which pictures to select because every single one was just beautiful. In the end I bought them all.

  • Samantha, Primbee

We wish to express just how lovely the process was. During the shoot we enjoyed admiring our little girl and, your kindness and care whilst handling her was comforting and made the whole experience joyful.

  • John, Gerringong

Our baby Lennox decided he didn’t want to sleep for the photo shoot. Orla worked her magic and put him to sleep,when I doubted that he would, and the photos turned out so amazing!

  • Jaime, Kiama

Orla, you were amazing with my three very energetic, crazy boys! They loved ‘playing’ with you and the photos you managed to capture have blown me away!! Thank you so much.

  • Kirsty, Gunnedah

Orla’s professionalism, experience and gentle nature ensured that my baby was completely calm and at ease during our photo shoot. The photos she took were exquisite. She beautifully captured a special moment in time that we will treasure forever.

  • Emily, Shell Cove

Wow! Just wow! I’m in love with our photos. You were able to capture not only some gorgeous pics of our boys but their personalities as well. The boys had so much fun during this photo session and you were absolutely amazing with them.

I love being based on the NSW South Coast. We are surrounded by so much beauty and diversity. Whether it’s charming villages, sandy beaches, rocky coastlines, rolling green hills or flowering fields – it’s all on our doorstep. I have sought and found many little pockets of perfection, ideal for photography.


Grab a cup of tea and settle in. On my blog you will see my favourite newborn, maternity, family and portrait photography sessions plus my latest shoots in and around the South Coast and Southern Highlands of NSW.
