Christmas Photoshoot with Natural Lights Photography!

About 45 mins south of Newcastle is a tiny town called Catherine Hill Bay. Right next to a beautiful blue beach was my secret location!

I had such a fun day out at Catherine Hill shooting for our stylised Christmas shoot. I found this magical location a week before and I instantly knew I had to do something really creative there. I had a vision for a Christmas shoot as the exposures in camera came out looking a little like snow. I knew I wanted some happy, smiley kids in red Christmas outfit as it was a beautiful colour contrast for the background. I had inspiration for hundreds of ball-balls hanging from the trees and even know it took me a long time to hang them all, it was well worth it!! The final result was exactly what I wanted!

Thank you heaps to these beautiful girls Izzy and Zahlie for being my models for the day and being so happy to work with all my suggestions. Even Koda (the dog) helped us out by appearing in some of the photos and making it look like even more of a fairytale. This beautiful family had ravelled travelled all the way from the Blue Mountains to help me out on the day.  You guys were rockstars!

You can see the rest of the images up on our client gallery here – https://goo.gl/eKoiE2
You too can have your own photo shoot in this stunning location. We are now taking bookings for this shoot at Catherine Hill Bay.

McEvoy Family – Bump to Bub by Natural Lights Photography

Maternity and Newborn Photography: McEvoy Family – Bump to Bub by Natural Lights Photography

It seems to me, most clients now are long timers! From the first meeting for Jayde and Benn, it was understood I was the only photographer for them! I have captured their wedding, portraits, trash the dress, baby 1 maternity and newborn and now baby 2 maternity and newborn. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I honestly believe it’s a true privilege to be asked back time and time again into the most important moments with a family! I am honoured to be considered in that way!

Jayde is one of those people who laugh spontaneously and just be sharing the vicinity you can’t help but join in. While knowing what she likes and has worked out a clear idea of the style beforehand, it’s certainly not serious!

A couple months ago I came for a visit to capture her beautiful belly and the last family moments before three became four. It was so cute how Miss Lauren was listening for bub, chatting to the baby and generally being her adorable self. She has been trained well Jayde- now drama with looking at the camera!!! Being as cute as she thought it is really working for her!

After Master Nathan arrived, she couldn’t stop wanting to cuddle him! Ever the helper, even when not in the shot, Miss Lauren wanted to be right there with her brother and help me with setups! (You can send her along to work with me anytime!!!!)

Both sessions resulted in some truly gorgeous images with belly bump and then Nathan. The family dynamics between these guys is so real and genuine – they needed no prompting or help. The simply enjoyed each others company!

Can’t wait for next year guys and all the ones to follow!!

Love Danielle

Family Photography: Rees Family

Rees Family Photography by Natural Lights Photography

Recently I travelled out to meet with Bec, Heath and their amazing kids. I first met Bec and Heath for their wedding, almost 6 years ago! Since then, every year we celebrate the year with updated family portraits.

I was such a pleasure to see them all again. Immy has grown so much but not as much as her twin brothers! Last time, these two were newborns! Now they are so full of personality – giving their sister a run for her money!!!

Starting off at the house and making the most of the new room out the back and its beautiful light, we worked through some more stylized images. Immy still wanted to sit how she wanted, moving and dancing within the frame! Oli and Hudson were total gems, sitting and watching me while sharing quiet moments with each. I’m sure they were wondering just who this funny lady was wiggling around in front of them!

Once out in location, we all had lovely time – we come back to Nurrangingy Reserve each year – being the location for Bec and Heath’s wedding. It is such a wonderful feeling meeting back up with these guys, seeing how the kids have grown and reconnecting again. Clients don’t always become friends – but Bec, Heath and their family certainly have.

Love Danielle

Newborn Photography- Baby Mia.

Newborn Photography Baby Mia by Natural Lights Photography.

After having the pleasure of photographing Anni and Nick’s maternity images, they once again came to the studio to have their precious new arrival photographed. After much feeding and cuddles, we got Mia settled and got some of the amazing images you see here! Both Annie’s parents were visiting from overseas, therefore, we included them the new grandparents in the pictures too. Capturing this special moment for the whole family.

Love Ellen.

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!

The Bartlett Family 2015

Danielle was an absolute delight to work with and the images speak for themselves. She shot in a natural, casual way (exactly what we wanted). My guests barely knew she was there. Such a pro!

Kim - March 2017

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

Samantha and Ron 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!
