Family session with the Stanleys

This family photography session is for Selena Stanley and her beautiful family.

We photographed Selena several years ago, so it was a pleasure to welcome her back to the studio with her family. Selena’s two girls were so much fun and so different to one another in personality.

Mother daughter session with Rennae & her amazing girls.

This is the 3rd session in our inspiration series of photography sessions where we focus on a person or family that has undergone a traumatic or transformative event and has emerged with a story to tell which we hope will inspire others. We were heart broken when we read Rennae’s story and we felt that we had to gift her a free session to give her beautiful images that will forever be important to her.
This week we had the privilege of photographing Rennae & her 3 beautiful girls, Yvette, Monique & Josephine. After years of trauma and stress, Rennae felt it was now time for her little family to have some professional photographs done for the first time after little Monique was badly and nearly fatally burnt in an accident 2 years ago. We loved photographing this strong little family and documenting this milestone in their life, and, what a brave and positive little girl Monique is.

Children & their musical instruments fine art sessions

Dean and I have been having a ball photographing child portraits, from 6yrs to 16yrs with their musical instruments. They are fantastic to photograph. They are disciplined, and they want the best results for their photographs, so they commit to the moment, they don’t complain if we ask them to hold a pose for a long time and they do as we direct perfectly. We love to see the massive smiles on their faces when we show them their image on the back of the camera and even more-so when they see their images come to life on our massive 70″ TV screen.

If you would like further information on a child portrait session with musical instruments please see this page or contact Karen on 0402 230 669

Child photography session for Cadence

We had a lot of fun with this child photography session with the very sweet Cadence. We have photographed Cadence in the past and we knew that she was such a great subject in front of the camera, so we decided to video the session for a behind the scenes look. We hope you love it as much as we do. It was such a fun session with her and her lovely mum Erin-Lee.

We have a range of pretty dresses for girls aged 7 – 12 along with accessories that you are welcome to use. We also have a child’s violin and a few guitars to vamp up a session. You are welcome to bring your child’s musical instrument in if it is portable and of course a tutu or dance costume if you have a little ballerina.

Children’s fine art portrait photography

child-portrait-photography-003

Here is a selection of fine art children’s photography we captured last weekend for four beautiful young girls from The Ballet School Caboolture. The girls, aged 8 – 13 years were a joy to photograph and a credit to their parents and ballet teacher who came along with them. We love the results of their portrait session and hope that you do too. They each bought in their ballet tutu plus a pretty dress so we were able to devote half of their session to a few ballet poses and the other half to traditional portraiture.

Our child portrait photography sessions are carefully crafted sessions which will give you timeless fine art portraits of your child which you will treasure for generations to come. We believe that your child’s portrait should be printed and therefore our packages all include beautifully finished archival prints, produced with the best quality ink and paper to ensure that your portrait remains beautiful for generations. You will also receive the digital files for each of your printed images.

If you would like information on a child portrait photography session with us for your son or daughter please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or you can see more information on this link.

Childrens Photography Session for Cady

Childrens photography

We absolutely love childrens photography and this child portrait session for 8 year old Cady is no exception. It was such a lot of fun to do and Cady had a ball playing princess, getting dressed up and generally being the centre of attention. We had just received our order of girls dresses and Cady was perfect to try out several of them during this session for us. Our child size violin made a wonderful prop and coincidentally, Cady is starting to learn the violin, so that worked out.

Cody’s mum was over the moon with the images and will have stunning photographs to remember her little girl by and show to Cady’s children far in the future.

We have dresses, props and accessories her for girls aged 5 – 10 so you do not have to spend a fortune on dresses if you don’t have any. Just check with me on sizing first. You are most welcome to bring in your own outfits, accessories and props also and we can design your perfect child portrait session.

Child portrait session for 8yr old Georgie

child-portrait-georgie-1

Georgie’s mum bought her into us for a model folio and child portrait photography session and we fell in love with her look and her infectious personality. Georgie was so incredibly easy to photograph and she loved being in front of the camera. She was patient and followed instruction to the letter. We could not have been happier with the results and we are sure that if given the opportunity any modelling work that she will do amazingly.

We have only been offering child portrait sessions for a short time and already both Dean and I thoroughly enjoy photographing them and we absolutely love the results. We have been lucky enough to photograph some amazing children so far. We have some sweet dresses available so let me know your daughters size to see if we have something special to fit. We also offer child portrait sessions for boys.

Your children will grow so quickly and this wonderful time in their life will pass you buy before you know it. We would love to give you stunning portraits of your child that you will be proud to hang on your wall and enjoy for decades to come.

Here are some kind words from Georgie’s mum.

“Dear Karen & Dean,
I’ve been meaning to send this message ages ago but end of school year got on top of me. I wanted to thank you so much for giving Georgie such an amazing experience! Apart from making us incredibly proud of how well she handled the shoot, you also gave us the joy of looking at her photos, that capture the intensity of her little spirit.
However more importantly, you did something even larger than our joy and pride. You both created an opportunity for Georgie to see herself in a different way. Georgie has always had lots of comments about her looks- and we’ve always told her beauty on the outside is nothing if you’re not beautiful on the inside! Georgie has known that she has a kind heart & earns lots of praise from teachers and coaches for her compassion, kindness and ability to make other people feel valued and important. What Mark & I didn’t realise is that she didn’t ‘know’ she was beautiful on the outside as well. She looked at those photos in awe and said,” I am beautiful – I didn’t think I was – but I am! ” 
I wanted to take the opportunity of giving you feedback. You were both exceptional at making  us all feel comfortable with the whole process. You given us much joy. 
I hope you both enjoy a relaxed & joyful Christmas.
Cheers 
Jac”

Actors folio for 10 year old Kiara

Actors head shots for Kiara 002

This seek Kylie brought her 10 year old daughter Kiara, in for actors head shots & a few model images. Right from the moment Kiara walked in the door we knew she was a bundle of personality and if this little girl does not end up in front of the camera it will be a great loss for the viewing audience.

Kiara was smart, funny, she listened to everything we told her and she knew how to pose. This of course, made our job so much easier and we loved working with her. We would thoroughly recommend her. We hope you enjoy her images.

“Thank you Karen, and thank you to Dean & Carla also – your formidable team.  Thank you for welcoming Kiara and I to your home and studio and for producing such stunning and edgy photos  – we are so happy with them.  We will highly recommend you and your team to everyone and anyone.  I just love your photos Dean – ‘you don’t take a photograph, you make it’, thank you for making something special for Kiara. We have already had great feedback from Kiara’s agent and family and friends.

Karen thanks for giving some valuable feedback to Kiara to look at magazines and to keep practicing posing.  We know she has a long way to go and it’s a tough industry, but this is what she loves and wants to do and we will continue to support her dream.  We hope to return to you in the future to create more special moments.” Kylie.
