The face behind the camera

Hello, I'm Dayna!

I'm a photographer based on the surf coast of Victoria. Growing up in the Western Suburbs I'm a local there too.

The rest of my story...


My love for all things photography and photos started young. Growing up all I wanted for my birthdays were cameras. As a child I loved taking photos, storing and printing them. Capturing life has just always been a hobby of mine. Following school I was studying to be a midwife/nurse and I guess that's where my love for all things birth, bump and motherhood comes from.

Becoming a mother myself is when I really dove into my passion for photography, taking courses, studying, learning and practicing. Over those years I grew so much as a woman, mother and photographer. I then decided that I was ready to create my business and pursue my professional career life as a photographer and so here I am.

A few other things about me; I'm a down to earth, laughter loving, fun seeker, sunset enthusiast, adventurous soul. Travelling and finding new places to explore are my favourite things to do with my family.

I live for moments, all of them; the raw, unique, special times that tell your story. Everyone is on their own journey and I am so honoured and privileged to be a photographer capturing these moments in peoples lives to treasure. Witnessing beautiful connections, personalities and love is just so precious. Conveying these feelings authentically through images is what I am about. I want you to feel all the things you were feeling at that point in your life, I want all of that to be preserved in your treasured images.

If you connect with me and my creative work, I'd love to hear from you and chat about documenting your unique and special moment, time, or season in your journey of life. All stages are beautiful and important to capture. DLP x

"Dayna did our gender reveal shoot and wow it was so amazing and fun to do! She captured our reactions so beautifully and the photos are just perfect. She was so professional and relaxed especially with our two girls. Memories we will treasure forever, made even more special by Dayna. I couldn't recommend her highly enough to capture all of life's special moments."
