What’s the only thing better than a newborn photo shoot? A twins newborn photo shoot, of course!

cheap newborn photography best newborn photography newborn photography ideas

I was lucky enough to capture Brenda and Ben’s beautiful girls one warm morning in April last year and had an absolute blast! I knew Ben from capturing his sister’s wedding a couple of years ago, so was delighted to hear that not only had the guys had a beautiful baby girl, but two!

The biggest difference between a newborn photo shoot and a twin’s newborn photo shoot is that there is twice the chance of waking up, meltdowns an tantrums! Happily the girls were beautifully behaved and gave us some sleeping photos, some awake photos and were even well behaved when we went to a local park to do some natural family photographs!

What I love most about this photo shoot is how natural everyone looks and how relaxed! Not easy when you have to brand new people thrust into your lives!

Thankfully, Brenda and Ben colour coded the girls for me! That could have lead to a little embarrassment otherwise!

The great thing about newborn packages is that we include your high resolution images on a disc so you don’t get stung by add ons and print fees. We can also travel to you or you are welcome to have the photos taken at our photography studio in Alexandra Hills.

We managed to get some sleeping shots, some waking photos, some photos with Mum and Dad and some baby photos of Amelia in her own room. The great thing about doing a newborn photo shoot with us is that you get the high resolution images on a disc, so there’s no need to dig out crumpled, old photos on their 21st birthday!

Brisbane Newborn Photographer – Jasmine

I love being a Brisbane Newborn Photographer! There is something so amazingly rewarding about capturing something so gorgeous, so delicate and so beautiful and I never see a job as work!

cheap newborn photography affordable newborn photography






I think having two of my own helps! I know how the meltdowns go, and when to hold off from the photos to allow Bub the chance to feed or have a cuddle. Moreover, I don’t stress when the meltdowns do happen; it is all a natural part of being a Brisbane newborn photographer!

best newborn photographer newborn photographer redlands baby photographer

Happily I didn’t have to stress with our beautiful little model, Jasmine! She was a star from the start with minimal fuss and managing to sleep almost all the way through her newborn photo shoot!

best baby photographer affordable baby photographer






It also helped that Mum and Dad were superstars too! Derek and Belinda were very calm (even if Derek did insist on pulling out his Liverpool FC scarf! Red rag to a bull for a Manchester United support like myself!) and had a lot of fun throughout the newborn photography session.

We finished up the session with some family photographs, then we left Jasmine to sleep without the camera!

A few days following the newborn photo shoot, I received a card in the post from Mum and Dad with a photo of jasmine on the front and a touching message inside. That is what it is all about! When your job allows you to do something as amazing and meaningful as newborn photography, then you know your job is a lot of fun!

Dear Andy, Just a short note to sat thank you for the beautiful photos you took of Jasmine and us – we are really delighted with them and they will give us some wonderful memories. Belinda, Derek and Jasmine


Couples Photo Shoot Brisbane – Donnie and Maddie

Donnie emailed me in the new year to book in a couples photo shoot but I had no idea it was going to be a surprise! The look on poor Maddie’s face when I interrupted their milkshake date was priceless!

So gentlemen, let me just highlight the new benchmark for romance! Donnie not only organised a romantic couples photo shoot for his partner of three years, but he aced the photos too! That must have earned him a good few brownie points!

affordable photography best photographer brisbane






Donnie and Maddie must be amongst the most natural and enthusiastic couples I have photographed, and I humbly believe the results are amazing as a consequence! Both of the guys were happy to take some gentle coaxing and suggestions and were only too happy to pose and cuddle up for the camera!

Romantic Couples Photos

We did the couples photo shoot at Wellington Point Park, one of my favourite places in the Redlands for romantic couples photography. We started at the Moreton Bay Figs (honestly, is it possible to take a bad photo here?!) before talking a walk along the beach and then heading to the jetty. It was a warm and beautiful morning with Donnie and Maddie making the most of the conditions to get some fantastic photos.

couple photos couples photography family photos

The time flew! We had an hour and it felt like ten minutes! I truly love what I do for a living and I hope it comes across in the photo shoots! I always say that if the time flies then you are having fun, and if you are having fun then how can it possibly be work! Thank you so much for an amazing morning guys and I hope to see you again soon! Andy

We got the photos yesterday and they look amazing! We are both so very happy with the result and both want to thank you again for being so nice and easy to get along with, also for taking such awesome photos!

I really hope we get to work with you again one day. Until then thank you again so much and take care.

Redlands Photographer: Shahn and Joe’s Engagement Shoot

Location: Wellington Point

best redlands photographer redlands photographer

Hi there, let me introduce myself! My name is Andy Williams and I am a Redlands Photographer!

I love the Redlands but only moved here in 2015. We are based in Alexandra Hills and have a home studio, but we absolutely love on location photo shoots, such as Shahn and Joe’s Engagement photo shoot at Wellington Point park!

affordable redlands photographer family photographer redlands

best family photographer family photographer brisbane affordable family photographer

couples photographer brisbane best couples photographer affordable couples photographer

I particularly love Wellington Point as a location for photo shoots as there are so many options for backdrops! I always start at the beautiful Moreton bay Fig trees, before moving to the beach, jetty and bay views on the opposite side of the peninsular. Being a Redlands photographer means I know the area very well and know of a few secret photo locations!

Shahn and Joe were an amazing couple to photograph; so relaxed, so much fun and so much in love! I was privileged to have been asked to capture their wedding a few months after capturing these photographs, and that wedding day was equally as fun as this engagement shoot!

manly wedding photographer discount wedding photographer

We were lucky that Wellington Point park was quite quiet that day so the guys had the place to themselves! We used all that the park had to offer and got some amazing and natural photographs; one of the specifications that the guys had before we started!

Baby Photography: Xavier’s NewBorn Photos


best newborn photos affordable newborn photos newborn photos

I truly adore doing baby photography! Maybe it is because I have two babies of my own (OK, they are 6 and 2 years old now, so maybe they are not exactly babies anymore!) but to photograph those beautiful little bundles of joy, and to capture their gorgeous innocence and cuteness is a privilege I will never take for granted!

And beautiful little Xavier was no exception! Like all babies, he was curious as to who this strange-sounding guy was when I turned up but he soon got used to me and slept. I always say that during a typical two hour newborn photo shoot, if we have an hour for photography and an hour for feeding/crying/changing/soothing etc, then we are doing pretty well!

We managed to get a fantastic mix of photos with Xavier and got some of him awake, some with Mum and Dad, and some of him looking incredibly cute and beautiful curled up and snoozing on his own!

I always like to get some close-up shots too, to highlight their beautiful little hands, feet and ears. Trust me when I say this: they don’t stay that little for long!

Wellington Point jetty is a great location for family photo backgrounds – even on a hot and sunny day we can head underneath the jetty for a bit of shade, which helps with squinting and harsh contrasts. We just have to make sure we go at low tide!

The crowning gem is the 400-year old fig trees; they are amazing and it is almost impossible to take a bad family photo there! Redlands Photography is a great hobby and past time but when it happens to be your job too, that has to be a blessing!

There was nothing about this incredible wedding at Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens that I didn’t adore! I had known Megan and Brandon for a while and knew them to be amazingly friendly and welcoming people, so I knew there would be no dramas on the day. And this magical wedding day went off  perfectly! One of the good things about Bundaleer is that you can often use the house behind the property to get ready. Its proximity and amazing light makes an ideal spot for wedding photos!

Brandon and the boys were patiently waiting when I got there. Brandon was mildly nervous but excited, and the best man leaving the rings in the wedding car didn’t help! The panic only lasted a few minutes and once the rings were retrieved, it was time for action stations!

Thank you so much for all the beautiful photos 😍 We absolutely love the canvas, prints and photobook!! Can’t stop looking at them 😊 Words honestly can’t even express how much we’ve appreciated everything you’ve done for us and all your support throughout such an amazing time in our life Andy. We look forward to staying in touch, and will definitely recommend you to friends and family! Megan



Kangaroo Point Wedding Photos: Lejla & Ares

Kangaroo Point Wedding Photography: Lejla and Ares

Location: Kangaroo Point

Date: 3rd January 2017

You might recognise Lejla and Ares from a previous post – I was lucky enough to photograph their engagement shoot last year! Happily they invited me back to photograph their Kangaroo Point wedding in January and I was ecstatic that they did! The guys are so easy to work with and so laid back; and yeah – they make my job easy by being very comfortable in front of the camera!



We met at the top of the cliffs and headed straight to the bottom to photograph at one of my favourite places in Brisbane – the little peninsular of rock that juts out into the Brisbane River and rewards the eager wedding photographer with an amazing city backdrop.

We had a great day for wedding photography; slightly overcast but nice and light.

We had an easy wander down river towards the city, stopping for photos and chatting. We ended up at the awesome white wooden pagolas that stick out into the river – another amazing spot for wedding photos. Kangaroo Point is an awesome location for bridal photography as there are so many options and such incredible backdrops. There’s the option of urban wedding photos, rural wedding photos, and rustic wedding photos, so we had a very easy run that day!

And of course it helped that Lejla and Ares were so confident in front of the camera and were so ready to laugh!









We then headed south back towards the cliffs, grabbing some photos amongst the trees and then climbing the ramp back to the top of the cliffs for some great pics in the rotunda. How amazing does Lejla look in her dress with the city through the window?!
















I love Kangaroo Point wedding photos; there is such an amazing variety and such an incredible backdrop! I can’t wait to get back there again soon!


















And I mst apologise for the long post – I couldn’t decide which Kangaroo Point wedding photos to prioritise! I love them all! Enjoy! And congratulations to Lejla and Ares for an amazing wedding and a fantastic Kangaroo Point Wedding Photography session!









Hey Andy!

we’ve just received the photos and my god do they look incredible!! thank you so much for photographing our day on such short notice and for once again blowing our minds!! we are in love with the photos!

good luck to you in the future, hopefully we meet again some day!

Family Photography Session:

Location: Wellington Point

Date:23rd February 2017, 6am

family photographyfamily portrait photography

I love early morning family photography sessions. No really I do! I have a one year old so I am awake at 5am every day, so I was delighted when Nikita and Simon asked if a 6am family photography session at Wellington Point would be OK. Let’s do this!

family photography brisbane family photography gold coast

It was a beautiful, warm and clear morning, and at that time of day the whole Wellington Point park area was home to a couple of fisherman, and us! We had the place to ourselves and made use of the jetty, park, and amazing sheltered fig tree area – all of which are fantastic locations for family photography!

Happily Nikita and Simon brought along their son Nico, an awesomely friendly little guy who was more than happy to throw a heap of big smiles my way!

The fig trees really are an amazing place for family photography – they make for such a great backdrop and the broad canopy allow us to take photos at any time of day. The amazing views across the bay to Manly and Brisbane city don’t hurt either!

And of course being a peninsular, Wellington Point is surrounded by water, and water always makes for great family photos! And having an early start meant the jetty was free for us to get some great family pictures on!

Wellington Point also has three play parks, which is great as a bribery tactic for kids! We took Nico to go and have a play and to get some spontaneous photos; sometimes these are the best shots from the session!
