ABOUT ME

Hi I am Rachel, a gal who runs on coffee, trying to make sense of life's beautiful mess. My days are a mix of chasing after three smallish humans, folding endless laundry and planning the week's activities. Photography is my love language, and I am forever looking at life, wishing I had my camera in my hand to photograph all its chaos.
I am a local to the Hills district of Sydney (Dural) and photograph all different love stories with a priority on giving you something tangible to hold in your hands.


MY APPROACH


For me, the heart of photography lies not in manufactured moments but in the art of candidly capturing life's authentic beauty. Known for my fun, comforting and friendly approach, I work effortlessly, providing gentle guidance and structure when necessary to allow moments to unfold naturally.


With an intentional presence, I believe in creating purposeful distractions, ensuring a personal atmosphere for you to immerse yourself in and to connect. While I understand the significance of photographs, I equally prioritise preserving the genuine focus of each moment, allowing you to savour each precious moment without interruption.

Located on beautiful private property in Dural. This is the perfect backdrop to create a one-of-a-kind session for you and your family. It provides so many options for your sessions with a studio space, paddock, and gully – spaces for many different adventures!
There is also a cafe withing walking distance also with local shops 500 metres away. Perfect for your next session 
 

I have created a beautiful natural light studio that is your home away from home. It is all things comfy and spacious. Located walking distance from a cafe and there is also space for the kids to run around after the session if they need to run off some energy. It is the perfect space for you if you want the comfort of home, not at home!

These choices are entirely up to you. Some clients prefer to stay in their home. Others prefer to get outside with their family and choose a location where they feel just as comfortable. Most of my clients have their session onsite where i have a variety of options fir your session. Indoor, outdoor and more. Contact me today to talk through your options.

Yes, I love to travel. Domestic and Internationally. with only limited space for weddings each year it is important to contact me as early as you can to secure your spot. Traveling internationally is even less so if you are thinking of doing your wedding internationally please contact me and we can talk through all your goals and plans. I also travel domestically. Weddings within 60 minutes of Dural (NSW) do not incur any travel fees.

 

I include an in-person or virtual meeting; this happens about a month before your wedding day. We sit down and talk through your day. You will have already filled in a detailed questionnaire that will highlight some important things for your day, but the meeting will give us a chance to fine-tune your day from a photography perspective and make sure we have a plan.

I usually touch base with family or other photography packages either by phone or message a week or few days prior to your session.

However, in saying this, I am always contactable via email or phone and welcome any questions you may have.


This is such a common question. I have a client wardrobe to cater for a variety of styles. However, I encourage you to pick something that makes you feel beautiful and comfy. If you are choosing colours, make them complement each other. If you want to stick to neutrals, consider texture and layering.
I am here to support you in all aspects, especially those wardrobe options. I have some gorgeous lux gowns for sessions available, but I am always happy to point you in an affordable clothing direction!


Weddings and Portraits are slightly different with regards to payment and plans, so contact me specifically for information regarding each one.
For weddings, you can have a payment plan.
Portraits are structured to cater for anyone with any budget.
If you want something else outside these two, contact me directly, and we can discuss your session.

You can pay via Direct debit or PayPal (which includes Credit Card)

This varies from session to session especially if your session is a wedding or family or something else. However, You can expect to receive approx. 50-60 photographs per hour of coverage for a traditional wedding day, smaller more intimate celebrations may be less.

 
  • Family, engagement and newborn photos will be ready between 3-4 weeks

Yes, I do. Prints are a beautiful way to display your photos and within your client gallery, you will have direct access to a print shop. I also offer albums that are designed with you in mind. Contact me for more information about prints and albums.
