Pip Williams didn’t grow up in rural Australia, but her move there awakened a love for the red ochre land, the rough and tumble of the bush and the people who call it home.

behind the lens

There’s something about the morning light – it shines brighter, dapples the trees with the look of stardust and sparks birdsong. Then dusk arrives, painting the sky a breathtaking palette of pinks, greys and gold.  

And while that light, those colours, undoubtedly inspire Pip’s work, it’s the people who live beneath them who capture her camera’s gaze. Not only because, like the red ochre land, she fell hard for their down-to-earth, unapologetically authentic selves, but because Pip realised her own albums have too-long missed photographs of those everyday moments of connection – the times her family are simply together, content and connected in their corner of the world. 

 

It’s those timeless, seemingly small moments that Pip captures in her photography of other families. Moments that trigger feelings of nostalgia, love and a longing for her own childhood. Moments that pull you back into the here and now, and give you permission to just be where your feet fall. 

Because that’s the stuff that truly matters, the world you’ve built from the ground up, among the drought and the dirt, the cotton fields and the cattle. That’s what’s real, pure, vulnerable and true. 
 
These are the times that translate to any era, any place – it just so happens that yours are captured by Pip, in the free, open air of rural Australia.

JESSICA LORD

"Cannot stop SMILING with happiness every time I look at the photos Pip took of our family! Every photo had its own uniqueness, personality and story so I had to have the whole lot (too hard to choose just 50)! Thanks Pip for coming to Bundy! We could not have planned a better afternoon for a beach-shoot and so lucky to have such a beautiful sunset background in many of our photos. I would absolutely recommend Pip to take any family photos!"

BROOKE TAYLOR-GOUGH

"This is how photography sessions should be. We felt so relaxed and at home with Pip. It was such a fun afternoon and we have the photos to prove it. We would definitely recommend Pip to take your precious family photos. Well, well worth the investment."

ANNABELLE KIBBLE

"Pip is the absolute best! Her work is incredible and I would recommend her to anyone. Look forward to another family shoot in the near future with Pip."

The dream is to one day take the family to the Red Centre and see this majestic beauty with our own eyes. I'm working on making this dream a reality in the next couple of years..

the greek islands

In late 2019, just before the pandemic hit Australia, my husband and I ventured here for my 40th birthday which was also my first overseas trip. It had always been a dream of mine to experience that famous blue and white Santorini view, overlooking the caldera.

I love taking the kids on short road trips and exploring small towns with them, or if time allows we make the trek to somewhere coastal where we can soak up the sunshine and saltwater and truly relax together. The beach is our favourite place to be.
