“Briony was absolutely fantastic capturing some very heartfelt moments on our farm with our kids.
She made us laugh and we all had such a fun time – we would highly recommend her for any occasion.
Briony you are awesome!”

We had an amazing afternoon out exploring at this Oaklands property.
Letting kids be kids. Pulling crazy faces and playing in the dirt – all a part of farm life.
We spent the last part of the day with just Lyn and Ben – canola and those gorgeous country sunsets – whats not to love!
I got to explore this family’s favourite spots and capture the colour and character of the land they love.

I love photographing on farms and rural properties!
Shooting on rural properties presents some beautiful storytelling opportunities.
Please note that these sessions need to be booked well in advance as I need to block out an entire afternoon or morning, and allow extra time for travel.



When you have a gorgeous photo collection like this – the perfect way to display them is in an album!
Dont leave them hiding away in a drawer, never to be seen again.
This is such a beautiful way to show off your precious photos – you can see this album and more in our Albury studio.


Newborn Photography albury wodonga

Seriously…does it get any better?!
This session was just so beautiful, and all captured in my beautiful studio space in Albury. Watching these beautiful girls with their new baby brother was just the sweetest thing. Even the threat of newborn poop and a white dress didn’t hold them back – although it was deciding factor when it came to the part of deciding who was going to hold him.
This is Tex…and he will be loved and cuddled and loved on some more by these gorgeous girls.

My favourite parts of a newborn session can be summed up by these images…
I don’t want to put your beautiful brand new baby in a basket and pose them, I want you to snuggle with them, inhale them.
I want to capture the way it FEELS to have this beautiful new soul in your life.
I want to capture YOU as you are, as a brand new family.
Moments are fleeting, they disappear so fast and I want to save those memories for YOU.
So you can revisit them for years to come and feel exactly what you felt right in that moment.

Embrace the flaky skin, the fluffy ears, milk blistered lips and those furrowed foreheads – those teeny tiny details that will disappear so very, very quickly.

Family and Maternity photographer Albury Wodonga

This was my third maternity session with Carla and it has been so wonderful to see this gorgeous family grow over the years. This session was as much about family as it was their soon to be arrival. Celebrating their gorgeous girls – adventuring, climbing, giggling and chasing each other around – their joyous personalities shining through. It was fitting to follow the light and catch the golden hour with their golden curls, golden souls and a glowing mumma to match!
Carla is an uber talented photographer and graphic designer and has worked with me over the last three years. So it was extra special to capture this beautiful time in their lives!

She also had no idea that dress would be quite so see through in that light – but it was oh so perfect!

“Briony is an incredible photographer. She puts so much effort into every step of the process to get the most amazing images. We are in love with our portraits and can’t wait to get them on the wall. Thanks Briony, you are a genius and we feel lucky to know you!” stolen from facebook

A seriously gorgeous family portrait session up on the hills overlooking Wodonga. Taking full advantage of the ‘golden hour’ watching the Summer sun set over the city. Lots of squishy hugs, hanging upside down and climbing trees – the perfect way to spend the afternoon!
No stiff poses, just natural fun together. The perfect way to celebrate your family – just as you are right now!
And it’s ALWAYS worth venturing that little further to find the perfect location.

Just under 4 years ago I was out at the same property photographing Anna and Tims wedding (here) – fast forward and three gorgeous kids later here we are again! I couldn’t have imagined photographing them anywhere else 🙂 It was mad and so perfect all at the same time. The kids personalities just shine through – it’s so very important to let kids just be kids.  A gorgeous time to capture and remember for years to come.
