Choosing a family photographer for life
Choosing a family photographer is something you only want to do once. We believe when you find the right photographer they should be able to document your family over the years. Getting to know your photographer and what to expect from a session makes it more meaningful each time. As an added bonus your artwork and photos remain consistent. Allowing you to add to a photo wall or decorate your home with photos that work well together over the years. Our clients continue to update their family photos with us even when they have moved as far as Canberra and Sydney. Come for a family holiday in Culburra Beach or Jervis Bay and we can photograph your family and create some meaningful memories. It feels more familiar and comfortable each and every time.

What time of day is best for photos?
It’s best to book your session around the routine of the youngest child. So when are they not hungry or tired. Usually we book shoots in the morning or after a lunchtime nap. Afternoons are usually reserved for older kids that don’t have naps.
What should we wear to our photo session?
You do not need to all come matching! Neutral colours are better than strong patterns like stripes or tartan. We also suggest you avoid shirts with logos or words. Generally one person wearing a print is enough. If everyone is in different prints it can look busy and confusing. However textured fabrics & layers look good, so think wool, silk, lace, linen. We suggest placing all the clothes together to see if they work as a collection. Make sure you can move freely jump, bend, sit without needing to adjust the clothing. Hats and accessories can look great too. We do offer a service to help you with this !
How long until our photos are ready?
The full collection is ready for you to view & order in about a week. Once you have made your order, retouching and finished products take 1-6 weeks depending on what you have ordered.
Do you offer professional framing?
Yes we do! There are many framing options to choose from to suit your home.You can simply collect your framed images ready to hang. Having images framed professionally builds your legacy and guarantees your images to last generations.
