OUTDOOR FAMILY PORTRAITS

Choose your favourite park or picnic spot, favourite beach or family hang out. This can be an ideal spot for your family portrait.

Outdoor portraits are relaxed and fun, the kids can jump and run and parents can chase them down!

The late afternoon provides the best lighting for outdoor portraits, around an hour or two before sunset (Referred to by photographers as ‘Golden Hour’). However, for families with little ones or busy schedules, we also offer morning sessions around 8 am or 9 am at specific locations.

Don’t have a favourite spot?  That’s ok, we have a great selection of favourite places we love to shoot at and are happy to assist you in choosing the perfect location for your family.

IN-HOME SESSIONS

No one is more comfortable than when they are in their own home, so sessions done here are very relaxed and natural. Your home is your castle and it’s a great feeling to have an image up on the wall that was shot in your very own domain.

Sessions in your home can be done at any time of day provided that there is plenty of natural light.

Some great places to photograph in your home include the master bedroom, lounge, rumpus or nursery and of course your own garden.

STUDIO NEWBORN PORTRAITS

Studio portraits are ideal for any weather and our climate-controlled home studio in North Lakes is perfect for Newborns. We have off street parking, bathroom facilities and everything is all set up and ready for you when you arrive.  Mother’s can take advantage of kitchen facilities and have time to tend to baby in between prop changes.

From my experience as a mother of twins and 10 years photographing families, I find the best time of day for a Newborn Session is in the morning. Babies seem more settled and fuss less at this time of day.

For your session, we have a selection of different backdrops, blankets and rugs. We also have a small selection of props to use including wraps, newborn outfits, headbands and baskets.

The studio can accommodate a family of 10 people however for bigger or extended families we recommend an outdoor or In-Home Session.

MATERNITY PORTRAITS

Pregnancy is such a special and precious time. There is excitement, maybe a little trepidation and love.

When capturing maternity portraits it is important not to worry about any extra weight that you may be carrying or if you haven’t been feeling the best through your pregnancy. We will ensure that the images are both flattering and beautiful.

Maternity portraits can be done in our North Lakes Studio or at your favourite (or our favourite) outdoor location. We offer a combination of Maternity and Newborn collections to capture both of these amazing times in your life.

CHILDREN’S PORTRAITS

They change so much from the minute they are born! It s great to not only capture them when they are small, but it is a pure joy to photograph children as they grow and begin to turn into little people.

Any age or stage is great and every child is different and we love to capture it all.

We offer in-studio children’s portrait, 1st Birthday celebrations (including cake smash), themed portraits including Little Ballerinas, Aviators or Fairies. We also offer outdoor portraits too, at your favourite spot or ours and of course at flexible times to make sure that the session can fit in between any daytime naps etc..

PET PORTRAITS

Part of the family, pet portraits can be with the whole family, just with the kids or just your pet on their own.

Having owned various pets myself, I am happy to have them here in the studio. I am used to handling different pets and have some tricks up my sleeve to help coax them to do what we need.

We also offer outdoor pet portraits at selected locations around Brisbane that are perfect to show their full exuberant personality.
