This beach session will go down as one of my all-times favourite available light family sessions! I highly recommend my families have a theme and some planned activities as it helps provide structure, helping me capture stunning candid images and set up more stylised shots. The sailing & sunset theme was a winning combination for this gorgeous family session. And this adorable Singapore-based family, who I also shot three years earlier, are still such a effervescent and entertaining bunch.
Highlights from a lovely photography session with the Hicks family at Freshwater Beach his week.

Little 2 year old Anika was adorable to work with. What a Gorgeous little angel.
Some favourites from a glorious morning this week photographing on Freshwater Beach with one of my all time favourite families. Nicole is such a loving mother and one of the most positive people I know. She also happens to be my sister. And these little people are so adorable. I love this mob.
Last week hello new look website. This week, hello blog!
I haven’t got around to doing a blog before which had something to do with living in a country without a reliable internet connection but it was mostly because I was afraid I wouldn’t have the time to post regular updates.
But that’s a thing of the past.
A few months back I relocated to glorious Freshwater on Sydney’s Northern Beaches after six years living and working as a portrait photographer in Shanghai and Singapore. Whilst I loved photographing clients around bustling streets, ancient temples and quaint gardens (or when the weather was rubbish in my cosy studio), I spent many a moment dreaming about the day I would open up in Sydney. I am thrilled to back, smelling the salty air and having the Northern Beaches as my backdrop…and I’m pretty happy that I'm finally getting the social media end of Julie Steele photography up and running too.
Once I get going I'll be posting images from recent shoots, special offers, useful photography tips and fab finds in the local area. In all honesty after being gone so long I feel like the new kid on the block (or more appropriately, ‘new kid of the beach’). I'm excited to be exploring Sydney again, meeting and getting to know local suppliers and working out which are my favourite locations (other than Freshie that is!).
So… welcome! I hope you like this blog and stay with me.
Stay tuned for news on a very exciting give-away.
