Chermside Brisbane Family Portrait

Photography Location Guide – Kidspace Chermside

Ideal Brisbane Family Portrait Location for

Graffiti and Greenery

Overall Rating

I had used this location before for a local family portrait for a big generation family portrait. Then I had someone who wanted something a little bit different and I remembered the graffiti wall and thought it would really add some colour and depth and be a bit of fun.

Access & Parking 

Brisbane families with kids may already be familiar with this location, as the park here (Kidspace) is amazing! There is plenty of off-street parking and although there is no path down to the area where we will have the session, it is very even and easy grass to walk on.


This North Brisbane Portrait location has great amenities. There are toilets on site, drinking fountains, BBQ’s and picnic benches, and don’t forget the fantastic playground for the kids to play when our session is finished too.


Best time of day for your session

This location is great for morning and afternoon sessions which make is super versatile. There is lots of pretty green foliage to keep out of the harsh sun and there is enough coverage for large group or generation portraits (which I have done here before).

Morning Session
Afternoon Session


For both morning and afternoon session, this location offers 3 distinct backdrops to your session:

  1. Leafy green alley
  2. Green tree-lined area
  3. Graffiti wall

Wow factor

The graffiti wall of course. Although it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, you can’t miss these images and the kids seem to really love them… a bit of fun.

In Summary

This North Brisbane Portrait location is really versatile for families, children and generation portraits. Plus I have photographed maternity sessions here too. The fact that you can shoot here for both morning and afternoon sessions is great and it is a fairly central spot for most on the Northside of Brisbane.
