Raw and Emotive
First Nations Storytelling

Capturing your stories.

Barefoot Wandering is a Coffs Harbour based photographer striving to capture authentic connections, intimacy, honesty and those unforgettable memories that hit you right in the feels.

Aiming to document those very special moments in your life that are real and have true meaning while creating an enjoyable and comfortable space for you. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of your story.

Barefoot Wandering would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

My People.

My people, the Aboriginal People of Australia, have the oldest continuous culture on earth & our ancient art forms are documented through a variety of mediums.

We are also thriving in the contemporary space in all areas of the arts; fashion, design, craft, photography, music and dance. Oftentimes these modern forms are intertwined with our traditional techniques. I have a vision to document our people in our current times for future generations to look back on what is now history in the making.

I also aim to uplift & empower our Aboriginal people through building relationships with communities. I want to provide opportunities for greater exposure to showcase our beautiful modern culture & business to a wider mainstream audience.

As Featured In

My Style.

My style has been described as soft, emotive and earthy. My work reflects my personality and my deep connection to country and culture. I am a passionate believer in keeping culture alive through learning from it, growing by it and passing it on to our next generation.

I had a shoot done with Marley and it was a beautiful experience. Very natural and down to earth, Marley has great talents and an artistic eye! I’d recommend her any day.

I have worked with Marley in collaboration, personally and for my business. I love that she is able to capture so much in one shot. I am especially drawn to the culture, country and connection she pulls from when shooting.
