Adding to your family
Rating (average)

Capturing all the love and laughter for your family from maternity, newborn and family and all the milestones in between.

There is more to photography than just a pretty picture of everyone staring down the barrel of a camera. It’s about feeling something. I want you to look back on your photos and see the freckles on your youngest’s nose, the way their whole face lights up when they look at you, their chubby little fingers and the way they scrunch up their face when they laugh. Connection, pure joy, moments that become the memory you wish you could go back and relive again and again. With photos, this is possible. It’s the one medium that allows you to travel back in time.

I’m a mum of three beautiful kids (who are growing up before my very eyes), a wife, a lover of life, fun and the way the light sets over the hills. Photography brings me such pure joy, because I know how quickly time goes and I want to help you remember it forever. I would love to meet you and take photos of your family. I am based in the Sydney Hills District, but travel all over Sydney.

We recently had Sue photograph our family. She made the session so much fun so that we were able to relax and just enjoy being in the moment with our children. The kids had fun and were relaxed and as a result we have such happy, beautiful photos that we can’t wait to print and hang in our home. Thank you so much Sue!

We highly recommend Sue for anyone looking to get family photos done and we will definitely re-book with Sue when it’s time for another session.

Sue is an amazing photographer. She makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed which translates into amazing photographs that will be cherished forever.

I have two children aged 5 and 8. Unfortunately, I had never done a family photoshoot because of my own discomfort in front of the camera. Sue made me feel so unbelievably comfortable. She advised me to focus on hanging out with the kids whilst she worked her magic in the background. That she did!!! Her photos are amazing! She is a truly talented photographer. She captured beautiful moments and interactions between each of us. It was all so natural and I did not feel uncomfortable at all! She was also so wonderful with the kids. That wanted to do the photoshoot again on the following day!
Sue was also so great is helping me get prepared before the actual photoshoot. She gave really great advice regarding the sort of clothes to wear for both myself and the kids. She had great suggestions for locations which made it all so easy for me.

I would highly recommend anyone wanting to do a photoshoot to use Sue Thorn. You won’t regret it!

I was so excited to receive my photos today as our photo shoot had been so much fun. My daughter needed little encouragement throughout the shoot and happily followed directions from Sue who was just fabulous with her.

The photos... what can I say... I welled up looking through them. They were beautiful. They captured the fun, love and affection that my daughter and I share.

As a single parent most of my photos are selfies and I am so grateful to have these gorgeous pictures of my girl and I. They will be forever treasured.

Thank you so much xx

We absolutely love Sue Thorn Photography! We have had family and 1st birthday photos taken by Sue and we love the magic she captures in her photos. The photos are stunning that we will treasure forever. Being a mum herself, Sue was able to put me completely at ease when taking photos of our 1 year old. We were able to take our time, relax and enjoy the experience - definitely what you want. Thanks so much Sue!

I've been a big fan of Sue's online portfolio for a few years now. When I learned I was expecting my first child, I knew I wanted to have some photos taken that I could treasure and she absolutely delivered 100%. Her work is proudly displayed in the homes of some of my friends and family.

Not only is she obviously incredibly passionate about her art, she oozes the warmth and charisma that comes from the years of experience of being around families and children and in so doing she manages to ensure they feel comfortable and content.

Sue is a mother herself and it is clear she sees the value in capturing these precious moments so they can be enjoyed for many years. I couldn't be more thrilled with her work, and look forward to having more photos taken in the future as our family grows.

Thank you, Sue. <3

In the lead up to my photoshoot I have to say that I was quite nervous about embracing my new body and whether I would love any of the photos. Johnny was also nervous - not one for the spotlight - so Sue certainly had her work cut out for her! We really appreciated her time in helping us choose what to wear to show off my baby bump and ensure the photos would be timeless and special.

Honestly, I am blown away with the results. It takes more than good photography skills for what Sue has captured. She made us feel comfortable and managed to capture not only photos but the connection we have with each other and this little one on the way. Johnny was relaxed in her presence and it came through. Honestly, Sue, you are a magician. These are memories we will cherish for a lifetime and I cannot thank you enough.

This is the second year I have booked a mother's day mini session with Sue. My girls were so excited to see Sue again and she didn't disappoint. The mini session is for 5 photos, but Sue captured so many amazing photos that I have ended up purchasing them all.
Sue makes us feel so comfortable during the shot and offers great advice on what to wear.
I can't wait for next years session.
