Welcome Ellen to the brand new Natural Lights Photography!


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!!

Jenni’s Glam Shoot

What I fantastic way to celebrate your 30th birthday, not that you would think she was?!

It was so much fun to have this total stunner in front of the camera today as a fantastic way to celebrate simply being you! This photo shoot was done as a celebration and that exactly what you should do, every step of the way!

“Today I turn 30. I feel like this is the age where people start to tell you things like ‘you’re only as young as you feel’ or ‘age is just a number’ and ’30 is the new 20′. But I love me at 30 and I’m gonna own it.”

“If any of my friends are interested in doing a glamour shoot, get in contact with Ellen at Natural Lights photography, she is an amazing photographer, I did a shoot there last weekend and it was so much fun!! You don’t have to have any experience with posing, Ellen will help get you in the right positions to look amazing. The Natural Lights Photography studio is at Wallsend”

Thank you to our amazing hair and make up girl Alicia!

Congratulations Sam and Ron on your most perfect wedding day!

I had known Sam and Ron for a little while now – sharing our first shoot for their engagement session down in the beautiful locations of Wollongong. We had so much fun that day and I was looking forward to their beautiful wedding.

June 5th arrived and it was everything Sam and Rom dreamed it would be! Full of elegance and attention to detail with all the extras Sam had organized, the day flowed easily and beautifully though everything.

Sam and Ron shared their vows full of emotions and smiles; there was not a dry eye amongst the guests! The rest of the day was spent laughing and joking and partying with all their family and friends.

Thank you very much to Sam and Ron for inviting us in to share such a wonderful day and the start of your married life together! We wish you all happiness for your future and cant wait to share your future family mile-stones!

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!

The Natural Lights Photography team are highly talented photographers with great energy and a real creative flare. They have photographed both my pre wedding shoot and wedding, my photos are incredible and I would highly recommend them as they are a pleasure to work with and they make the whole Experience enjoyable. My husband and I loved having them shoot for us and I look forward to using Natural Light’s plenty in the future

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.

Jacci July 2016

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!

The Bartlett Family 2015

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!
