Family Portraiture

Photo session for families and children


Most family and children photo sessions are taken at a location close to the families home or here on the Northern Beaches.  Here on the Northern Beaches our beaches make a great location or some people prefer the surrounding native bushland. Both locations are great from toddlers upwards. If the photo session is primarily a baby photo session then either your home or my studio is generally more appropriate. I travel for family portraits within the Sydney area. (I have maternity and newborn packages available so please request more information if interested)

My aim is for the children to play and have fun as this is the how timeless images are captured. Generally at the start of the session I take the “safe” and more traditional photo’s,  then often as the children relax and have fun the best images are made.  I generally find the older children respond well to outdoor photos as well and it is great if the family dog can come along as it provides a good distraction and allows for more natural photos.

Portrait sessions generally take about 1 to 2 hours. I only book one session a day so there is no rush.  If it decides to rain we reschedule to another mutually suitable day.

Your images will be available in both colour and black and white.



Session fee is $140 for weekdays and weekends.  This includes $100 credit towards prints. This covers the photoshoot plus the follow up photo viewing meeting.  This is payable on booking to reserve your photoshoot date.  

I have a range of beautiful photography products to choose from so that your photos will become personalised artwork within you family.  Framed or matted prints, leather bound books with archival paper and Italian made folio boxes. These photographs will become some of the most valuable things that you and your children will ever own.

Individual photos start at $120 for a 17x25cm print which is matted and supplied with high resolution digital copy in both colour and black and white. Folio Boxes start at $1100.  There is no minimum spend, you only buy what you love. For more information regarding pricing email for a PDF
