We had this amazing family visit our East Brisbane studio for an awesome photo shoot with their gorgeous teenage boys! While they kept us all giggling the entire shoot, I have to say Mum stole the show with her bubbly personality! And just look at her gorgeous smile! Mum was especially happy when she came to collect her stunning framed series, which really reflected the lovely relationship these parents have with their kids! Ek was soooooo excited when she came to collect her beautiful framed series and made sure she left us with lots of giggles! Also, just a little bit proud of her boys :) We love these special moments between husband & wife as well....look at the looooove!...

What would you like to achieve with your family photo shoot?

We absolutely live in a digital world, however, printing your photos will always have more of an impact than looking at them on a screen (remember....every screen looks different too!). It is a stunning and meaningful way to tell your family story and the relationships you all have with each other. Before your photo shoot - we recommended looking at your walls at home and figuring out what you would love to see hanging there - what photographic moment? and displayed how? will it match with your home decor? Is it in a room you love and spend a lot of time in? How big are your walls? Essentially, you want to create something you will love forever and something ...

What to wear to your photo shoot!

If you are after a fun casual style photographic experience, we suggest that everyone wear plain white tops, T-shirts, stretch tops, polo shirts, singlet tops, etc and a pair of jeans and no shoes. Mums and daughters - feel free to wear a gorgeous white dress! And for babies, a plain white jumpsuit is lovely.  If whites/lighter colours are not what you would normally wear, absolutely feel free to wear black/navy or darker colours that you feel comfortable! If you are after a more classical and stylish look, your family could wear white collared shirts and tailored tops with plain dark pants (if you are undecided why not have both on hand!).  The simpler the better! Any logo’s, colours or ...

Mummy and Daughter - 6 month old photo shoot

A month or two ago we had some new studio lights installed and had a range of families into our East Brisbane Studio to help us test the best lighting set-up at different times of the day (as we also use natural light), as well as different sized families. We thought this was a really special shoot as it was just Mummy and her little girl, Camille - who was actually six months old at her photo shoot! She had lots of smiles for us and I think really enjoyed having that play time with mummy! And look at how cute she is as an elf!!! We hope you have a wonderful first Christmas! xo

These Brisbane parents were so calm at their photo shoot with their gorgeous little baby boy, Lachlan and fur baby Tonka! We decided to capture lots of different moments including the family together as well as some special time alone with Mum & Dad. What a beautiful family story they have told! Lachie was quite sleep in his photos, but then opening his piercing eyes for a few and looked straight into the camera! Adorable! He was also very good at sharing cuddles with his fur brother.....though I am not sure he had the choice?! haha :) We hope to see you all again....maybe with another member added to the family!

I met this beautiful Brisbane Mummy when she was excitedly awaiting the arrival of her first baby with her husband! We captured some amazing moments (look at that gorgeous bump) pre-baby, but to be able to see this beautiful couple again one month later, so proud and radiant to introduce their amazing little baby girl Skye. Well, what an absolutely gorgeous bubba (and she surprised Mum & Dad when she arrived early!). Together we created a wonderful framed series with their little baby girl - we can't wait to see it up on your wall at home!

From the moment this lovely Brisbane Dad contacted our photography studio to book a family photographic experience, we knew it would be outrageously funny! As his toddler chatted away in the background, listening to every word Dad was saying about her, she decided to correct him on a few things.....and they managed to get everything booked in ;) We photographed a range of stunning combinations this family - including special indibidual time for the little ones with both Mum & Dad. When Dad came to collect his beautiful framed series artwork yesterday, he was so excited for all of the gorgeous frames telling their families story...and even more excited when he managed to fit them in the car!! Haha! We ...

Welcoming their precious second son into the world and capturing him at 100 days old!

It is always so special seeing siblings play together and their interactions with each other, especially when they have a camera on them! Jayden was clearly very excited to have a little brother, and being 5 years old he was a great assistant! As he was also photographed at 100 days old, Mum & Dad brought in little Phynix also at 100 days old to capture this important moment in their culture. Phynix was so good with his tummy time and I think enjoyed just rolling around being entertained by his brother!

I have been so lucky as a photographer to be able to capture families as they grow. It makes me so happy when our beautiful Brisbane families come back to us and we get to sink back into their amazing family dynamic, hear updates on life and chat to the kiddies about their world! These two are so in love, which is gorgeous to watch and this photo shoot was to capture some special times between them as a couple and with their gorgeous girls! And look at their amazing dimples! Thank you for the laughs and for sharing your lives with us, a photo shoot I will always remember xxx

I have photographed this amazing business woman, wife, mother and mentor many times. In both a corporate setting as well as my favourite.....family portraits! I even captured an award winning portrait at one of her family photo shoots! I want to give a shout-out about how amazing she is in every aspect of her life and how this article in the Working Women's magazine just confirms that even further! How amazing to build a day care on site to take care of all of these gorgeous children whose parents work at Tanya's company - Consolid8. She really does think outside the box and is incredibly solutions focused! So if you are looking for an amazingly thorough accountant or a woman ...

Young love is the grandest! These two cuties are just gorgeous and have a great love story. And now they have welcomed their gorgeous little man, Elijah, into this world! He is now 1 year old and a cheeky little toddler, getting around on his two little legs now! He had lots of giggles with Mummy and Daddy in at our East Brisbane studio! What a little champion and so gorgeous with those big eyes, when he looked into the camera it made my heart stop. I can't wait for you to see your family moments captured forever :)

How cute is this Brisbane family and their dogs! Clearly the two fur babies are very loved - how gorgeous are they posing in the middle of the family! So funny how sometimes your pets just know what is going on and how to work the camera ;) The last time we visited these guys, the kids were much smaller - so what an amazing visit to see them so much taller (and wiser, of course!). I love this age, as their interaction with their parents and as siblings is on another level! Despite out photo shoot being in winter, we still had the beautiful autumn trees in the background, which I loved for their family photograph! We can't wait ...
