Creating Treasured Moments from Newborns to Families to Weddings

From humble beginnings in her late teens, Natalie Howe has spent her life fulfilling her passion for capturing truly memorable moments in print.

Offering a highly personalised experience, Natalie employs the highest degree of professionalism in extracting emotion from the interactions between people.

With 14 years in the industry, capturing beautiful weddings, timeless memories of newborns, cheeky children and growing families, the Studio has a great reputation and a flourishing clientele. Natalie has her APP M.Photog I within the AIPP and has held the titles to some of the industry’s most prestigious awards including the 2016 Newborn Photographer of the year, 2017 NSW Newborn Photographer of the year and 2015 NSW Family Photographer of the year as well as many awards with her beautiful wedding portfolio including a 2ndplacement at the WPPI’s.

With a 16 year background as a Personal Assistant, Natalie runs a tight ship, the workflow schedule runs like clockwork and this allows her to manage a large portfolio of work every year, have work out the door in record time, and weddings processed and ready for clients 7 days after the big day. Exceeding client expectations is paramount.

Natalie has spent her past few years creating a custom built studio for her clients. Offering a unique experience, that includes indoor as well as outdoor locations on her stunning property at Wallacia, clients keep coming back for more as there is always something new at the Studio. Clients are more than just clients, they become part of the family and it isn't rare to have children running up to wrap their arms around her. That is the best endorsement a photographer can have.
