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.

We were lucky enough for Selena to agree to us videoing the session so that you can get a behind the scenes look at a family session with us.

Today we captured beautiful moments between mother & daughter, Lesley and 11 year old Alexi. Having photographed Lesley in the past, we decided to video this session to show you what one of our mother/daughter sessions were like. We also love photographing dancers and since Alexi is a keen dancer, we took the opportunity to add a few dance images. We hope you enjoy the results.

Our matted, ready to frame prints start at $225 and our collections start at $750.

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.

Family photography session for Rebecca from Mackay

Family photography 005

Rebecca and Ashley brought their girls to the Gold Coast for their annual holiday and while they were there they came to us for a glamour/family photography session.

We photographed some glamour for Rebecca, some romantic couples images just for them and then photos of the girls and the family together. Missy and Jaydah had a lot of fun with the dress ups and Missy was a natural in front of the camera. I think she was disappointed when her turn was finished.

As we have a lot of sets and several studio spaces it is easy to combine several styles of our work into the one session which is especially handy for clients who are travelling from afar as we can cover all of their photography desires in the one sitting.

If you would like pricing on a glamour, couples or family session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or by email.

Mother & Daughter portrait photography session

Mother and daughter 003

Nicola and her daughter, 16yr old Isabella came in for a special mother/daughter session with us and they were a joy to photograph. Isabella was the first to use our new ivory tule skirt and although she was a little reluctant at first (she thought the skirt a little too ‘girly’), it ended up being her favorite image of the day.

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”
