{Christmas Prizeapolooza} The gift of memories

The gorgeous Aimee Cook from Aimee Cook Photography is our latest local crush.logo

Offering natural maternity, newborn, child and family photography in Bathurst and surrounding areas she has given the gift of memories to many families you know around town.

Aimee also offers wedding photography through a partnership with Sydney based photographer Sally Zarka. You can see some of their work here -> www.aimeeandsally.com.au

Aimee says it was during maternity leave with her now four old daughter, Sophie that she undertook a Diploma of Photography to keep her mind active and give her something to do other than an endless pile of washing!

Aimee grew up in a family of artists including two grandparents who were painters and a grandfather who was a picture framer. Plus, her mother renovates houses, makes leadlight glass amongst many other craft endeavours! Aimee’s father is a talented musician and her brother is a graphic designer so she is surrounded by creative spirits. Aimee says she spent a long time trying to discover her own hidden ‘talent’ but the moment a camera landed in her hands she knew she had found her calling.aimee

Not long after completing her diploma she began getting requests from friends and family who had seen her work and wanted her to shoot their own families. Aimee Cook Photography grew quickly from there.aimeecookgroup

What makes Aimee different is that she offers a program unlikely to be found anywhere else in our area. The Beautiful You Project offers free photography for children with special needs. This program is designed to celebrate children from all families with all different types of special needs.beautiful you

She also offers a wide range of custom products, that are timeless and unique. Aimee says she is passionate about looking for new ways to get photographs off the computer and onto walls (or in albums) in family homes across the Central West.

Aimee says her very favourite part of her job is watching families grow, especially those that she has seen since the beginning.aimee cook baby

The work of Aimee Cook is very relaxed and natural. She attempts to capture families and children as they are and find what makes each individual family unique.
