Kind words from Clients
Sue Thorn is a magician with a camera. She can make the most uncomfortable person (me) quite willing to follow her directions, enjoy the process, and laugh throughout.
The gallery she has sent through from our family shoot was just divine - there’s too many amazing photos and not enough places in our house to showcase them all.
I/we couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Brendon Long, Family Session
Sue took the most beautiful photos of my little family! We are so grateful for her patience and gentleness, she was so great with my little one and made the whole process really easy and relaxed. She was very helpful in the lead up to the day, and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the result. I would highly recommend Sue and we will definitely use her again. Thank you again!!

Sue did an amazing job of our extended family photos! With 12 people ranging from 10 months to 74 years, Sue confidently and professionally directed us while putting us all at ease.
Sue used the natural environment and light brilliantly. She wasted no time in taking the shots, editing and uploading the gallery.
The photos turned out exceptionally! With formal group shots and natural candid shots there was something for everyone. I can’t wait to start making an album and printing canvases!
The flexibility to get both the individual, small and extended family shots in the same sitting saved on both time and cost.
Sue was understanding, patient and accomodating with the difficulty of scheduling with 12 people including 2 shift workers.

I was very fortunate to receive a family photo session with Sue for my birthday. I was really impressed that Sue reached out prior to the session to gain a better understanding of our family; likes, dislikes, anxieties etc. Our boys are quite reserved, but Sue made us all feel extremely comfortable and relaxed from the outset. It was a really fun session and this is reflected in the beautiful results. We are absolutely thrilled with our photos and would highly recommend Sue to anyone.
Jodie Hawker, Family Session
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.

Thanks Sue Thorn Photography for our amazing photo shoot! Our son often takes a while to come around to new people but with in 5 minutes Sue had him smiling and enjoying the experience as much as we were! We received a fantastic gallery to choose from, I had a lot of trouble picking the best ones as they were all fantastic and really captured our family well. I'd highly recommend Sue for any family photo shoot and will definitely contact her again when our family grows!
Julie Sudiro, Family Session
We have been incredibly lucky to have Sue photograph so many amazing, memorable moments in our family life. From pregnancy to labour and brand new baby photos or a first birthday cake smash, she produced some of the most breathtaking photos. The photo gallery was fantastic and every image was filled with so much joy and emotion, capturing the moments that we hold so dear. Sue has a talent for making you feel very comfortable in any shoot. Whether she’s working with a toddler, brand new baby or pregnant mumma, she creates a relaxed environment and easily directs you to capture the best angle or shot. It has been an absolute privilege to have had Sue with us while our family grows and we’ll be forever thankful for the amazing photographs that we have to cherish forever.

Thanks Sue Thorn. Such an amazing photographer and so chilled. Challenging conditions on the day but you managed to capture all the fun and loooove of the day. Had such a blast and love how you just went with flow of the day and managed to capture moments without me even noticing - very cool. Xxx
Melissa Grinham, Wedding
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!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Highly recommend Sue Thorn Photography to everyone for family and products photos.
Sue captured our studio Sterling + Hide and products so beautifully.
Sue also captured some shots of my mum, daughter, our dog Flame and myself they were so gorgeous and natural. Sue makes you feel at ease and we can’t wait for the next family photo shoot in a couple of weeks.
Thanks so much Sue!
Sarah Carroll-Goldsmith, Business Session
We had a Mum and Daughter photo shoot with Sue recently. Sue was as excited as we were, right from the start, in helping us plan what to wear, the location of the photo shoot etc. She made us feel completely at ease during the photo shoot. We didn’t have to wait long to see the final pictures. We absolutely love the photos. Highly recommend Sue Thorn Photography!
Ashika Rajan, Mum & Me 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!
Nicole Hopkins, Family Session
Sue took such amazing pictures of my son for his 1st Birthday cake smash! She was so patient and created a lovely relationship with him from the moment she stepped in the door. She had great ideas and the pictures turned out fantastic. I couldn't be happier with the results! Thanks Sue you are amazing!
Sarah Cresswell, Cake Smash & Splash
What a super experience! Sue Thorn photography recently did a family photo shoot for us at Bella Vista Farm; the shoot was very relaxed yet professional and Sue guided us around to best suit the location and lighting conditions, resulting in a fantastic set of photos of our family. The after shoot service was exemplary too, with the sample photos, to the final edit and professional kit including prints and digital, supplied in only a matter of days afterwards. Couldn't be more happy, thanks Sue.
Rob McLean, Family Session
Words cannot describe my gratitude to Sue for capturing this memorable time for my family. First, with the prenatal shoot, she took great care to make us feel comfortable (& it shows in the photos). She is so great with kids and captured all sides of my 6 year old, who she also put at ease (a miracle). The newborn photos were such a pleasant experience, because Sue came to our home and worked around all our baby’s whims. Her packages are so reasonable, luckily, because the photos are so perfect - I wanted them all. Cannot recommend this talented photographer enough!
Natali Milovanovic, Maternity and Newborn Sessions
I’m so glad that I found Sue! I was in two minds about doing a cake smash but we are beyond happy that we did and now have memories that will last a lifetime.
She was incredible on the day, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and appreciated her patience, energy and relaxed vibe. We love the images she captured of our little poppet in a natural outdoor setting, they are very special to us and made us get emotional a little.
Hopefully we’ll get to work with her again in the future. A huge thank you from us Sue, you are simply the best.x
Elsabe Hurter, Cake Smash Session
I just had an Easter mini photo shoot with Sue for my 4 month old baby boy and it was such a great experience. Sue was so good with him, pulling out all the tricks to make him smile, which worked a treat and made for some amazing photos!! I absolutely love them and would definitely recommend Sue for anyone wanting to capture some great memories.
