Hi there, I'm Hayley, a beach-loving, Elton John-enthusiast from Sydney, Australia, living my dream as a boudoir photographer. Before finding my true calling, I navigated the corporate branding world, but it never quite fed my soul. Photography did. My journey to getting here wasn't just about mastering the lens; it was an intimate dance with self-love and body acceptance, one that began in a ballet class at seven and led me through personal battles with body image, PCOS and post-partum body changes.

I believe every woman is a masterpiece, deserving of a moment to be seen and celebrated. This belief is the heartbeat of my work. My clients? They're the brave souls at a crossroads, ready to redefine their body image, eager to explore their femininity and beauty through my lens.

In my studio, it's not just about capturing images; it's about rediscovering and embracing your beauty. My approach goes beyond the camera. It's about nurturing, understanding, and revealing the natural emotive beauty in every woman. My team and I create a space where you're not just photographed but genuinely seen. Our style? Think tasteful, feminine, with a touch of film photography nostalgia.

The first thing you should know about us: we make women feel beautiful. We’re not just taking pictures; we're crafting experiences, celebrating your unique journey with every shot. Our love for what we do shines through at every step, and it’s this passion that sets us apart.

Beyond the lens, I'm a single mum and a wannabe singer, embracing life by the ocean. My past experiences, my love for classic tunes, and my journey as a mother deeply influence my work. My mission is to empower women, to help them see their beauty and strength, just as I learned to see mine.

So, if you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and celebrate your beauty in its most authentic form, I'm here for you. Let's create something beautiful together.

Since I can remember I have felt a pull towards photography. It's not something I can fully explain but I always loved the idea of creating art through the back of a lens. It was when I looked at certain photographs I knew it was not only a mere image captured in time but how much work went into creating such an image, a piece of art that stood in front of me. How someone could capture such beauty.

Photography is my way of writing a story and over the years it is still something that I pour my energy and love into. And of course, my other loves include my two sons .

All in all I love what I do. I am passionate about it and I enjoy working closely alongside my clients to create images that I am proud of. Most importantly I want my clients to love their photographs just as much as me, if not more.

I can't wait to be creative with you.

I’m easygoing, fun-loving (and I also happen to be Hayley’s sister!)

I’m a proud fur-mum to Ruby the chi chi, who you might see guard-dogging the front of the studio from time to time. I love pilates, coffee with my girlfriends and cuddles with my 3 little nephews who make me very clucky. 

Working with Hayley at Intimately You is a dream come true. We have the most amazing clients and we have a blast with every single woman who walks through our door. It’s my mission to make the experience one you’ll always remember and rave about to your girlfriends.

If you have any questions or need a pep talk before booking, I’m your girl.

The Studio

We focussed on designing a dreamy space for our Northern Beaches Boudoir Photography Studio, so that each and every client feels as comfortable and inspired when they visit. Nestled in amongst tranquil bushland, backing onto a creek. It’s private and secluded, warm and welcoming and what we like to refer to as our ‘bubble of healing and empowerment’. 

Get familiar with the surroundings you could be shooting in, by taking a look at the space.
