Hello hello! My name is Trace and I'm the head behind the lens at Dawn and Folk.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my site! 

I live on Sydney's Lower North Shore with my husband Dave and our two kiddos, Tahli and Cove.


I fell down the rabbit hole that is photography in July 2017 when I first got my hands on a DSLR camera, and of course I had no idea what I was doing. I had enjoyed capturing the quirky little moments of my family's daily life with my iPhone, but as far as shooting manual mode and all that comes with editing, etc. it was like another world to me!


But I quickly became a woman obsessed. I have made (and am continuing to make) all my friends and their beautiful little families my subjects, and the buzz I would get from giving them special, forever captured moments only fuelled my obsession more. Somehow, through word of mouth and the help of social media, my little hobby grew into a business and I have never felt more satisfaction in my work than I do now!


My favourite place to be and where I am most creative is outdoors, using nature as a beautiful backdrop, but just getting the opportunity to hang out with my subjects and snap those moments when everyone is just doing their thing together, that's my absolute favourite style. 

My portfolio now covers family lifestyle photography, interiors, children's fashion, look books and content, and personal branding portraiture.

Unfortunately, as of June 2019, I'll be putting my photography sessions on hold as it has become increasingly difficult for me to juggle the logistics of family life and session times. I will still be working on creative/collaborative projects, so please contact me if you are a business looking for someone to shoot product and you think my aesthetic is something that aligns with your own. I'll release an occasional family session times here and there, so follow me on instagram to be notified when those become available.  I will also of course accomodate any family session gift voucher redemptions still outstanding so contact me at trace@dawnandfolk.com to discuss locking in a session time.
