about me

Hi! I'm Danielle- a child and family lifestyle photographer located in the Southern Highlands of NSW and guess what? I have mess just like you! That mess comes in the form of a two year old daughter named Mae, baby Hazel and a husband I adore (who can also make a bit of mess!)

Some days I have more mess than I can physically handle (its normally down my back) and some days I’m so organised I could take over a small country! It’s life- especially life with small children. It’s a make-shift, throw together lunch because the fridge is empty or a wiggles on the lounge kind of day, it is delightfully messy and we wouldn’t change it for the world!

Being an Early Childhood Teacher for over ten years, my career began when I combined my passion for photography and love of children into one awesome little business that brings me joy every day. My style is very natural and relaxed and won't leave you feeling stressed out that your kids didn't 'perform'. I aim to capture those 'real life' moments in your household- I don't want perfect, I want real! I capture connection- those first days with a newborn, breathing them in, kisses on the head, I want it all! If you are looking for images that evoke emotion, tell a story and capture the raw emotions, you have come to the right place!

​Does your child carry bunny around all day every day? Well guess what, bunny gets to be in the pictures too! I am very flexible and want your photos to be a true reflection of your family and those little quirky bits that sum up your families reality. We want to remember the special moments we have and what better way than with photographs in your own home!


Outdoor sessions at golden hour (sunset) are also available. I have a few locations around the Southern Highlands and Wollongong that I shoot at, however am happy to travel to somewhere that holds a special place in your heart.
