Welcome to Alice Payne Photography

A particular passion for Familes, Children and People

I'm Alice, I'm French and a mother of 2 energetic boys. I share a beautifully imperfect life with my partner in crime and soulmate Tim.

I'm a natural light photographer and my work focus on family portrait, maternity, newborn, business branding and I also love capturing wedding, elopement. I'm based in Valla (near Coffs Harbour, Macksville, Nambucca Heads and Bellingen on the beautiful Mid-North NSW coast).

I love to tell the often times untold stories of people, their situations and events, family life,  and childhood through my photographs.

You won't find a lot of perfectly posed, hairs all in place type photos here. What you will find is more organic, real emotions. Mama's embracing their babies the same way they do late into the night at home, noses crinkled up with uncontrolled laughter, the cat or dog (photo-bombing), and the goodness and essence of people, childhood and the beautiful mess that make up you, your partner and your family.

I would love to work with and for you -  to plan your session and then preserve these moments and memories.
