The beach is our home - Wollongong Family Photographer

Sandy feet, sun kissed noses and an afternoon of play and cuddles. What more could you ask for on a stunning autumn evening in Wollongong.

For these cuties the beach is their second home, they are there nearly every day and it is apart of their soul (even maybe a bit of inner mermaid). When Rin, a local coal coast small business owner contacted me, she wanted to capture her family, in their favourite place, doing what they love in a natural, raw and honest way. We had so much fun, just relaxing and playing. I loved capturing those little moments of shell collecting, playing in the sand and jumping the waves. When we were saying our goodbyes at the end of the session, their eldest daughter asked if I could come back to their house for dinner as she was having so much fun, which totally filled my heart.

Here is what Rin had to say upon viewing their gallery. “The photos are all amazing too. Now comes the hard part of deciding which ones to print...We had a lovely time at the shoot too. Thanks for making it all easy for us.”


Thank you for investing in family memories with me, I love that I can give families everlasting memories that they can relive when they look at their images.
If you would like to invest in memories that tell your family story, I would love to chat to you about making that happen.

Fuller Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

When your baby girl turns 1 you need to celebrate the momentous occasion with a family photography session. 

That is exactly what the Fuller's did for their gorgeous and full of smiles daughter Sophie's 1st birthday. It was a beautiful winter's afternoon, I headed up to Narrabeen on the Nothern Beaches of NSW. When I arrived, I was instantly taken back by the beauty that surrounded me. 

We met at Narrabeen beach, we played, chatted, laughed and sung wiggles songs. We then headed just down the road to Narrabeen lakes where they spend a lot of their time as a family, having picnics, walks and lazy Sundays. We watched the sunset over the lake and the sky lit up in a rich amber colour. It was the perfect way to end the day. 

Thank you to the Fuller's for showing me your beautiful home town. See what they Fuller's had to say about their session here.

I am available for travel for family sessions, If you would like to have fun, relaxed and playful images on your walls of your family, please get in touch here, I would love to hear from you.

C Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

A sweet family session on a summer's evening in Wollongong. 

As a family photographer in the Illawarra, I am blessed to be able to use the stunning beaches we have. For the C family, this beach holds a special place in the heart. It is where they raise their children and spend many family moments together creating memories. 

I loved capturing their family story in a playful and real way. You can see what they had to say about the session with me here.

If you would like to book a session I would love to hear from you. 

Betty - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Newborn Photographer

"She is the gold at the end of the rainbow." - Unknown


I first met the Bates family when their first daughter Airlie was 8 months old. Since then I have captured many priceless moments and memories for them (including Ally's maternity photos which you can see here) and this was by far the best as Miss Betty was long awaited. 

Here is what Ally had to say about our session together. 
"If a picture is worth 1000 words than a picture by Jade is worth 2000. I am mesmerised by Betty's newborn photo gallery, you captured my family perfectly. I cannot thank you enough! Being a mum Jade completely understood that sometimes the littlest of subjects don't want to cooperate but she showed patience and professionalism and was happy to take her time to ensure that the shots were perfect, she even had time for a play with my toddler. I will treasure these memories for a lifetime."

Thank you Ally, Keiran, Airlie and Betty for welcoming me into your lives, I am now honoured to call you my friends and watch your babies and family grow. 

If you would like to have a relaxed and fun session with me, get in touch here, I would love to hear from you.
