  • Over the Moon Photography – The Blog!

    Hi, My name is Ann Niddrie and Over the Moon Photography is my passion.

    Welcome to my blog where you can stay up to date with my recent shoots and adventures with awesome people in love.

    You'll see sneak peeks of lovers tying the knot, family photo sessions as well as precious newborns all here on the blog.

Love, humour & grace on the mountaintop.

Jess & Steve are made for each other. Their wedding day was filled with so much joy, humour and grace it was was truly an honour to be around. Having hired a secluded hilltop retreat, Jess & Steve went about making their day exactly the way they wanted it to be down to every little detail – perhaps except for the weather.

I am so lucky to capture the special day of so many down-to-earth people. Even with wind and rain Steve & Jess were filled with love and joy, and surrounded by loved ones who were eager to celebrate them beginning their next phase of their lives together. I met Jess when she was 14 years old, and have seen her grow into a delightful and generous woman who has found her match for life. Every person present on their special day had a story to share of joyous moments shared, of admiration and love for this wonderful pair.

Inspired by Pippi Longstocking

Sometimes when there is a new arrival in the family it isn’t all roses. There can be a little sibling rivalry, even when the sibling is of the fur covered kind. Astrid at 10 days old has captured the hearts of Caolyn & Ben but her ‘brother’ will need a little warming up. On a glorious autumn day I met Carolyn & Ben in their home in Winmalee, basking in the joy of little Astrid, named after the famous author of the Pippi Longstocking stories. We even ventured outside to enjoy the fresh air, bird song and warmth.

Carolyn & Ben received a gift voucher for their newborn photo session, having put it on their Baby Shower wish list. I love that idea! And what wonderful friends & colleagues to gift them such a special momento of this time in their lives.

Bianca & Steve – Preview

Bianca & Steve went on a morning walk through the grounds at Kiwarrak Country Retreat in the Manning Valley recently, and the light was simply divine. It was such a pleasure to share a photo session with two adorable people so in love.

To travel the world for you.. Morgan & Roger

Morgan & Roger met in Brisbane around 2 weeks before he was leaving Australia to return to his home in the USA almost 4 years ago. One week before Roger left they went on a date. They fell in love. In our photo session they not only shared their amazing story of love and travel with me but they also shared with me their laughter and beautiful energy.

Couples photo sessions with Over the Moon Photography are so much more than posing in one spot and then being told to ‘kiss and have a connection!’. Morgan and Roger’s photos show that it was an adventure in the woods that was a beautiful celebration of them as a couple, enjoying an afternoon stroll soaking up the sunshine, the freshness of the air, and each other. I create photo sessions that allow you to open up, be who you are and truly connect, so that you remember the feelings and the fun time you had when you see your photos on the wall, instead of cringing.

Morgan and Roger now live in the USA together and on a visit to Australia with family, Roger proposed on Valentine’s Day. There is no doubt from spending an afternoon with these two that they are indeed soul mates. I asked Roger why he was still in love with Morgan after all this time and his reply was this: ‘We are always honest, we constantly laugh and we still keep it romantic. And we are best friends that like to hang out with each other – even in silence.’

Morgan & Roger thank you for celebrating such a special time in your lives with me and for allowing me to capture it.

Our gorgeous sunset photo session was on the grounds at Kiwarrak Country Retreat in the stunning Manning Valley on the mid north coast. I love to travel, it is part of what nourishes me as a photographer, so don’t feel that because I live in the Blue Mountains that you have to miss out on having gorgeous photos captured of you and your loved one. Get in touch and see when I’ll be in your neck of the woods next.
