Brisbane Family Photography
Your family are the most important people in your life and the moments spent with them are the ones you will look back and smile at later in life. I will capture photos that reflect the bond you and your family have when spending time together.
When photographing families I prefer not to use too much posing but instead encourage interaction between you and your loved ones for the most natural shots. I usually advice families and groups to wear similar colours and stay away from big logos and large patterns as they are a distraction in photos. Wear something you feel comfortable in that reflects who you are.
Family sessions can be done on location or in my studio space at Manly.
Brisbane Maternity & Newborn Photography
Pregnancy is one of the most precious and significant moments in a woman’s life and although it can seem like an endless wait it goes by incredibly fast. I like to capture this special time during the third trimester, usually between week 30-35. A good time to book is during your first or second trimester to make sure there are session times available when you are on the last stretch of your pregnancy.
Maternity sessions are included when you book a newborn session and can be held on location, on a beach or a field during sunrise or sunset for that magical soft light or in my studio space at Manly.
The best time to photograph newborns is within their first 4 weeks of life (ideally around 2 weeks). This is when they are the easiest to capture in certain poses and they are still very sleepy. It can seem hard at the time as you are adjusting to life as new parents but it is worth the special memories you get to keep of your baby being new and squishy because they grow up way too fast.
I do newborn photos in my studio space at Manly. A newborn session can take from 1.5 hours to 3 hours dependent on the baby and the circumstances. The session is tentatively booked a few days after your due date but will be changed depending on when bub decides to arrive.
Older babies can be photographed in studio or on location and I love being part of milestones such as 3 months, 6 months or first birthdays.
