Welcome to the world baby Jordyn!

20 years ago (ekkk!) I knew Louise at high school. Friends for many years we have chatted online across states. Recently Louise moved back and I was invited to spend the afternoon with her beautiful family and welcome Miss Jordyn!
Such a pleasure seeing you guys and capturing your family moments. Cooper is totally smitten with his new baby sister and is such fun in front of the camera! Jordyn is gorgeous and a perfect addition to your amazing family!
Thank you for sharing your afternoon with me! I can’t wait to do it again sometime soon! Xxx

Welcome to the world baby Max!

It’s a very big day when I became an Aunty. Not only was this my first nephew and my daughters first cousin – but my baby sister became a mumma. I felt like I would burst with love! So of cause, I gave the gift I am best at and captured images of Max at a tiny 12 days old. He was the most perfect of ‘clients’ and slept almost the entire time. And when not sleeping, he was watching me, sharing all the secrets of the universe. (I am emotional just writing!) I am so happy you are here Max. Your mum and dad love you beyond words can ever say – and the rest of your family are totally head of heels! We have been waiting a long time for you – welcome little buddy! I cant wait to share your life with you! Xxx

Creative Session with Bella.

A couple weeks a go I enjoyed a creative portrait session with this little beauty. Something different and fun, we spent time in an abandoned warehouse and the field next door.

Lovely to spend time shooting for fun and capturing some really beautiful images.

These are only a quick sneak peek as I have something special in mind for these!!!

Kim and Vincent’s Spontaneous Wedding Day!

A couple weeks ago I get this lovely little facebook message asking if I remembered her form a few years back and how much she loved my shots.

Kim was getting married in three weeks (spontaneous like both her and Vincent she said!) and would I be free to share their day. I am so glad I was!

Kim promised a relaxed, fun day in which I would be able to float around and photograph mostly documentary style. They didn’t want the formal shots, they wanted only their real story their nearest and dearest.

This is my perfect wedding and I loved sharing everything with them. I was able to capture so much and all mostly from the edges of sight. At times, they forgot I was there and all the jokes, laughter and tears flowed more freely.

I love to be able to fade into the background while not missing a thing. With a knack of allowing events to take place outside of me, I am able to capture everything as it truly is.

Not every wedding is like this. By nature, wedding days are usually more formal, strict and a bit stressful, although still beautiful and moving. Kim and Vincent found the perfect way to manage the stresses while being themselves.

The speeches at both the ceremony and reception were heart felt and funny. I loved hearing all the history Kim and Vincent have shared together. I did chuckled more then once behind my lens! (And must amit to sweaty eyes too!)

Congratulations on your amazingly beautiful, emotional, memorably spontaneous wedding. May your lifetime be without murder J

Welcome Ellen to the brand new Natural Lights Photography!

team

Danielle: I first embarked on my Natural Lights Photography venture 12 years ago at the young at of 21. Over the years I have grown and learned and built the wonderful studio, which is Natural Lights. I have been so fortunate that through hard work and amazing support of my clients, I have been able to work in an industry, which I truly love.

I first met Ellen when she was a very keen high school student back in 2010. Ellen was so keen she would come and spend all her holidays hanging out with me in my studio; traveling hours by train in order to do so. Holiday after holiday she would come along and learn and soak in everything she could. It has been 6 years and I’m so glad she never left!

After sharing so much of the growth of the studio with her, along with her personal growth and mine, this year, I asked Ellen to come on board and work along side me as partner in Natural Lights Photography.

I am so happy to have Ellen working with me every day as we re launch the studio, re-engage Natural Lights Photography and welcome all our beautiful clients – the loyal past and exciting new!

Welcome Ellen and I cant wait to share the Natural Lights Photography future with you!

Ellen: I knew right from the very first day that one day I would have a much bigger role to play in this business then when I first started age 16, doing part time shooting and admin work at Natural Lights Photography.

I am beyond grateful the support I have received from Danielle and NLP as I grew as a photographer and when I was ready the opportunity to be a partner in a business I have always loved.

Being with Natural Lights for a number of years not it made sense that when it came to purchasing my own business that this was the one for me. Danielle and I are a fantastic team as we are both so passionate and driven that nothing can stop up! I am very excited to be working with new clients and establishing a new repartition in the Newcastle area as a brand new boutique wedding and portrait studio!

Bring on the weddings, bring on the brides and bring on new ideas and challenges!!

What a pleasure it was shooting with Ellen for the Mortels Sheepskin shoot. Such an amazing eye for location and detail, great direction and lots of fun to work with. It's clear that this talented young person has an incredible future in photography ahead of her.

In 2011 Danielle photographed my cousins wedding and the pictures were amazing! Last week she photographed my 8 week daughter. She had a hard morning with my squirming VERY awake and "not having anything to do with it" baby and the pictures are incredible! If you're looking for a great photographer, Danielle is your lady! Thankyou so much!

Natural Lights photography recently covered our wedding. From start to finish they were complete professionals. The direction, the ability to capture the right moments and there friendly nature made the whole experience unforgettable. We knew the prints would be amazing but we were still blown away with the results. Couldn’t recommend more highly! We’re are so happy we chose them!

Kathryn and Matthew 2015

Danielle is easy to work with, great laughs and takes amazing photos! Would recommend her to anyone wanting beautiful photos that capture the moment perfectly.

Murielle Sassine 2015

I wouldn’t chose anyone but Natural Lights Photography for my photos. I think the results speak for themselves but they make the whole experience fun and easy going with no awquardness about being in front of the camera. There dedication to the art and work is admirable and definitely something you don’t see I everyone. Weather it is family portraits, wedding portraits or anything in-between. I can’t recommend them enough. Awesome people and awesome photographers!
