Long car rides, the stress of navigating to an unfamiliar address, packing tote bags so they're bursting at the seam with snacks, nappies and toys, extra clothes - any family knows how exhausting travel can be. That's why we come to you. We'd much rather you to spend all that energy having fun at your shoot instead.

The benefits of having a photo shoot in the family home don't end at simple convenience. Children feel more secure in familiar surroundings. The gruffest blokes can relax and just be 'dad.' Most of all, it's intimate. There are no unfamiliar rooms, hot lights, or strange teams of people bustling around in the background.

We don't create a facade. We help people lose their ...

Katrina's Philosophy - Brisbane Photographer full circle

"When we were children, there weren't any family photos on the walls in our home," says Katrina. So one day when a travelling photographer rolled into her tiny country town, the Cochran children's Sunday bests were ironed, their hair begrudgingly brushed and each pose carefully arranged on that traditional mottled background. Unfortunately, the resulting photo was not the image of perfect porcelain angels their poor mum had envisioned (and that were so popular in those days). Thumbs were being sucked. The siblings wore the scowls of children recently reprimanded for having hunched shoulders. "But it was authentic, and looking back at that picture always makes me laugh."

It was this ideal Katrina carried through to her business. What's wrong with ...

Parents are so cool these days! These two Brisbane parents are no exception! Having won an awesome family photo shoot at the boys school festival, Cannon Hill Anglican College, donated by Katrina, Mum was already raring to go. So we did a beautiful natural make-up for Mum, then these beautiful teenage boys helped me set everything up :) Always nice to have little assistants (and by little, I really mean taller, haha!). And they were so fantastic the entire shoot. I love that everyone in the family really gave 110% , it was a full weeks work-out at the gym, but we have some pretty outstanding moments captured - awesome family portraits forever!

Say Hello to Little George Astley - 9 days old but so strong, sweetly stares into your eyes and has an amazing grip already. Alice & Barry you are such natural parents and he was an absolute gem today (and of course your little doggie Darcy!). This little photo is for Grandma - her FIRST Grandbubba wrapped up in a precious blanky she made especially for him AND she was also visiting during George's first few weeks of life, which was so special to capture. There is something about a portrait with a proud grandparent and newborn baby - encapsulates all that is so important in life :)

There is something about an older sibling adoring their newborn baby brother or sister that is completely heart-warming to the core! This little lady is honestly a wonderful and adoring big sister to her new baby brother Harry. At only a delicate 12 days old at their family photo shoot, Harry was pretty amazing, looking around with his big baby eyes and lifting his head. It was when he was cuddling up, skin to skin, with his big sister though, that you could see he was settled his most. And adorable Hannah loved every second of her cuddles, gently patting his back and saying in the softest voice "I'm patting him to sleep" and with that his little eyes closed ...

On the weekend I was fortunate to photograph this special occasion. What an amazing moment to have all these new members of this family together in Brisbane.

How wonderful for the kids to each have children all around the same time.​ Baby Benjamin 5 weeks, who slept for the majority of the time. Four month old cuddly Alex and the leader of this little group is 6 month old Christopher.

The beautiful mother of Benjamin, Natalie, said to us:-

“I’m gifting this package for my mum in law's birthday to have a beautiful family portrait and some lovely prints with the whole family in Brisbane: because she gained three grandsons in 6 months”.

3 little boys, destined to become such close cousins ...

There was dancing, flipping, cuddling, kissing, giggling, bottom slapping and many cool toys at this photo shoot. I seriously giggle just thinking about it, then I see the hilarious photographs and remember the most FUN family photo shoot! Mia and Will, you are the coolest brother and sister! You rocked your ​portraits and how gorgeous to have seen your little baby faces from your first photo shoot up on your wall at home and now to see you both growing into lovely children (with the same cheeky smiles) is pretty great :) I hope this was a lovely surprise for your husband, Daniela. We can't wait to see you all again xx

Wow, how radiant is this new Mummy! Her glow absolutely shines through her Mum & Sister too, who were visiting Brisbane from New Zealand during their photo shoot. It is so special to be able to photograph 3 generations together (of girls too!) - a really special keepsake for baby Kiera to grow up and have. Rachelle is such a calm soul, she will be such a natural Mum and I am sure Aunty Brenda will always be there to keep the giggles going. Dad managed to have some sneaky cuddles in between the girls all being photographed together all the while this beautifully little newborn baby snuggled in to everyone and lapped up the attention.
