“Because there is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.” – Sarah Kay

I’ve lived here or a few years now and the light still astounds me. I’m yet to find a stretch of coast that offers so much beauty and diversity. I shoot at the best and most stunning locations on the South Coast and my favourite time is golden hour, when he sun is just abut hidden behind the mountains – amazing!


A quaint historic village surrounded by lush green hills, country homes and beautiful gardens – there’s plenty of pretty locations in Berry to provide the perfect backdrop.


Kiama as a photography location offers glorious beaches, big skies and charming seaside backdrops, as well as beautiful farms and fields of flowers.

03. Gerringong

My welcoming, cosy Gerringong studio provides the ideal location for newborn sessions, while for family sessions Gerringong offers no shortage of playgrounds, rockpools and beaches to explore.

04. South Coast

The golden light, white sandy beaches and rolling green hills of the NSW South Coast provide endless opportunities for family photography sessions.

05. Southern Highlands

Lush green pastures, autumn trees, spring blossoms and flowering gardens provide a wealth of inspiration for photography in the NSW Southern Highlands.
