Jodie Chard, the owner and photographer of Natural Kidz Photography (NKP), had a passion for capturing moments on film from a very young age. Many years of travelling abroad awakened her need to record events, places and people to showcase their unique beauty.

Having undertaken courses with the College of Photography & Art, annual seminars with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers) – showcasing national & international speakers of the highest standard; Jodie continues to nurture and grow her passion. The most extensive studies have been under the guidance of Triple Master Photographer Rob Heyman.

Photography has always played a big part in my life ~ becoming a mother was the catalyst that gave my love for photography a true purpose and direction. For over the past 4 years I have chosen to specialise in family portraits ~ from maternity, newborns and children to our beloved pets.Discovering the world through the eyes of a child is a truly inspiring experience. I am extremely fortunate to be so passionate about my work ~ I love to capture the unique beauty of each person, knowing their grandchildren will appreciate and treasure these images as much as they do.”
