Hush Photography is a reflection of the heart work of award-winning AIPP Photographer, Nicole Akhurst, who is passionate about photographing newborns, babies, children & families in a simple, honest & fresh authentic way to emphasise pure emotion and beauty. Nicole specialises in Newborn & Family lifestyle imagery in the Wollongong and Illawarra region by evoking emotion within you to tell your life story of the season you are celebrating.
Capturing beautiful unposed moments that are of raw emotion, connection and togetherness, is at the heart of your photo session so you can look back on the everyday real-life moments that bring the simplest of joy and gratitude.
Newborn & Family Lifestyle sessions can be held on location or in the comfort of your home where your memories are most profound and you are most at ease. It is the beautiful candid moments of your little ones wrapping their arms around you, squealing in delight and naturally being themselves where the magic is captured. We focus on connection, individuality and with our detailed questionnaire we get to know you and custom create our sessions around what is most important!
Healing Heart Photographer
A bereaved mother herself, Nicole is passionate about healing with art as a Healing Heart Photographer, honouring babies that have gone too soon through her unique personal sessions documenting the beautiful ways in which you honour and celebrate your little loved one, whether it be their anniversary or any day you create as important. A small donation from every Healing Heart session goes to Heartfelt to help other families through this devastating time.
Nicole is a professional photographer who volunteers for Heartfelt in the Illawarra providing the gift of photographic memories to families who have experienced stillbirth, premature birth or children with serious and terminal illness.
