About Me

Stunning photographs that you’ll treasure for a lifetime


Newborn and Family Photographer

Hi, I’m Lorna van Hilst. I’m a newborn and family photographer based in the Sutherland Shire.

I specialise in newborn and baby portraits, because I love photographing babies! From newborns, through to toddlers, there are so many special moments I want to capture for your family.

Every tiny detail and every little moment is so special because it’s so fleeting. And that’s why I’m passionate about the art of photography. Helping you to document your new baby’s life – through photos – is an honour beyond words.


Capturing your cherished memories

I aim to provide you with a wonderful experience when having your photos taken.

What’s more, I’m committed to providing you with the best quality product possible. And that means prints. I believe photographs are only truly appreciated when they’re printed.

The focus of my photography is, and always will be, quality prints you’ll cherish for a lifetime. I want you to be able to proudly display and enjoy your photos – to look at them every day.

And when you do look at your images, I want you to smile because they evoke such fond memories for you.

To me, it’s not just about taking perfect pictures. It’s about capturing the genuine and natural love and affection you feel for each other – and having that translate into your photographs to make them more meaningful and memorable.


An experienced, professional newborn and family photographer you can trust

Your newborn baby and your children are precious. And you want to know that you can trust the people around them.

I’ve photographed babies and kids for over eight years. Which means that I’m skilled in handling and posing new bubs, and can coax a smile from the shyest or most unhappy kid!

Plus, I’ve got a Working With Children Check clearance. So you can rest assured that you can trust me around your treasured kids.

But that’s not all.

I’m an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). This means I keep up to date with all the latest training and education, so you always benefit from the latest advances and techniques in the art of photography.

Also, I hold a Diploma in Photo Imaging from the CATC Design College. Because I’ve studied photography you can trust that I understand (and love!) the art and know how to capture the best images for you.
