I am in the process of loading some family photography photo shoots from last year (and playing catch up!) and I am delighted to say that less than a year after taking these amazing family photos for Kerry and Jason, I have done two more family photography sessions with them! The next family photo shoot was a maternity shoot for Kerry, which was followed a few weeks later by a newborn photo shoot at our studio in Alexandra Hills!

This family photography photo shoot was an awful lot of fun! Sienna was an absolute pleasure to photograph and her very proud Mummy and Daddy didn’t do too bad a job of modelling either!

We headed to my favourite place in the Redlands area for our family photos; the park at Wellington Point. There are always so many options there for photography, from the Moreton Bay fig trees, to the jetty, to the beach so we had lots of backdrops and lots of beautiful moments to capture!

All of our packages include your high resolution images on a disc so there is no need to come back to us to have your images printed. Kerry and Jason wanted to get the best quality of canvas possible so they had a huge canvas printed, and it looked amazing!

I find it the best compliment possible when family come back time and time again for more family photo shoots and I genuinely hope I hear from Kerry and Jason again! I love my job and I adore what I do and it is all thanks to families like the Smiths! You guys are awesome!

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!

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.

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.

Photography in the Redlands is very rewarding indeed – for a start we have countless options for family photo shoot locations, and with plentiful ocean backdrops, Redlands Photography is a must!

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!

Family Photographs: Gyorgyi’s NewBorn Shoot

Family Photographs: With a NewBorn Photo Session!

They always say never work with children and animals, but quite frankly neither bothers me in the slightest, especially when the children are as awesome and well behaved as Gyorgyi’s four kids! I was in Heritage Park to capture some family photographs, and I knew with a welcome as warm as that, it was going to be a great family portrait session!

brisbane family portrait session brisbane family photography

I headed to their beautiful house in Heritage Park early one warm morning and was greeted by three beaming and cheeky smiles! I grabbed some photos of the kids on the stairs first – an impromptu game of ‘Peekaboo’ raised a few smiles and laughs; even from Mum and dad!

affordable family photography family photography brisbane family photography

Gyorgyi and Roman’s newborn son joined us for a few shots – what a well behaved little boy he is! And so easy to photograph! Newborn photography shoots are usually punctuated by tears but we didn’t have any at all!

cheap family photography best family photographer

He slept the whole time, and even allowed Mum to change his clothes and get some nudey shots! He wasn’t overly keen on the baskets (Gyorgyi had brought some of her own – it’s always nice to have some new props to photograph!) so we let him chill on the blankets instead!

newborn photography affordable newborn photography

Roman had to work that day so we worked quickly and got some great family photographs. The kids were especially well behaved and keen to have their photo taken and they didn’t even tire or get bored as we progressed through the morning!

In general the more people there are in a photo the more challenging it becomes! Blinking becomes more prevalent of course, but these guys rocked!

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!

Being completely honest, the success rate of a cake smash photo shoot isn’t all that high! Quite often the poor child looks on confused, wondering why they are being told to play with food all of a sudden after years of being told that playing with food is wrong! Not Mia! Mia loved it and dived straight in, covering herself in cake and getting a good few mouths full too! And it made for an awesome cake smash photo shoot!

It was quite warm that day but happily Mia’s Mum and dad (Lydia and Anthony) had a Bali hut in their front yard that gave us some shade from the heat, meaning Mia could contrate on the task at hand!

And she didn’t need too much convincing! Even with a good crowd of onlookers, she dived right in and had a blast!

Happily, Mia’s elder sister Eleni was on hand to help when Mia started to flag!

Lydia had sent me through a handful of cake smash photos she had found online and that she would like to capture the feel of – and I have to say the colours and styling that Lydia did was perfect! I adore the colours in these cake smash photos – the pinks and purples work amazingly well!

After fifteen minutes or so, Mia’s belly started to get full and she needed a little rest from her cake smash! So cute!

As Mia started to tire, Eleni, Lydia and Anthony (bravely!) dived in for some family photos!

And then it was time for a quick hose down and a change of clothes for the remainder of the party!

And after an amazingly fun party and highly successful cake smash photo shoot, I headed home with a piece of Mia’s amazing stripey cake that Lydia had made herself! Happy 1st Birthday Mia, and thanks so much for having me capture it!

I just wanted to let you know we’ve received our photos from Mia’s party. And can I just say… I simply cannot put into words how VERY happy I am with them!!! They are amazing! I’ve never had SO many photos returned from a photographer that are all so damn good! So thank you again so very much for helping us create these memories for such a special occasion.

 

 

Family Photo Shoot: Zsofia & David’s Portrait Session

Family Photo Shoot: Zsofia and David’s Family Portraits

Date: 30th December 2016

Location: Wellington Point

family portrait photographs family portrait

There’s a big difference between a UK Christmas and a Queensland Christmas and it took me a couple of years to get used to it! Prawns instead of turkey, salad instead of roasties; and mid-thirty temperatures instead of negatives! We spent this last Christmas with the relatives back in Manchester and landed back to a warm and sultry Brisbane day. I wasted no time in getting behind the camera again and met Hungarian-born Zsofia and David at one of my favourite Redlands photo spots; Wellington Point Park.

family photo shoot family photos

Zsofia and David brought along their parents to the family photo shoot, but the star of the show was their beautiful daughter Lili. She loved the camera and smiled and flirted for the whole hour!

cheap photographer brisbane brisbane photographer

I always try and get the big family shots first as these tend to be the hardest; getting a full family to smile at the camera at the same time. I needn’t have worried with Lili – she was a legend right from the start! She even allowed me to sit her amongst Wellington Point’s amazing fig tree roots and smiled the whole time! And look at that smile! What a cutie!

Every family photo shoot needs parents and Zsofia and David weren’t camera why either! Thanks so much for making my job so easy, guys!

I always like to get some photos of the kids with each parent too – as a parent of two myself, I rarely get photos of me with the kids!

redlands photographer       wellington point photo shoot        photo shoot brisbane

I tend to think that as a family portrait photographer, having kids definitely helps. I have no problems with making silly noises and pulling silly faces – anything that will get the littlies attention! It usually gets some sympathy giggles from Mum and Dad too!

Everyone loves baby photos: babies are tiny, cute and gorgeous so it is little surprise that every parent loves receiving beautiful photos of their baby a few weeks after their arrival!

newborn photography brisbane baby photographs

 

 

 

 

Happily Naz and Mohammed were well prepared and got in touch a few weeks before Medinah’s arrival to arrange a photo shoot for when she was just a few days old. Well how cute does she look! We did some studio photos with the family and got some beautiful baby photos using my props: baskets, blankets, and wraps. For around ten minutes! They say you should never work with babies – but sometimes that’s just part of the fun! Medinah had other plans that day and wasn’t as interested in having her photo taken as Mum and dad were!

baby photos brisbane       baby photographs brisbane        newborn photography brisbane

We persevered and got some absolutely beautiful shots but maybe not as many as we would have liked so a week or two later I was back and what a difference a week makes!

Medinah already looked bigger and more alert but happily she was sleeping. We managed to get the majority of the cute sleeping baby photos you see here, but then she decided to see what the fuss was all about!

Naz had some lovely props too – headbands, wraps and clothing – so we had a bit of a dress up and grabbed some photos as we went.

And no newborn photo shoot is complete without the details – we grabbed some photos of Medinah’s tiny feet and hands.

Mother’s Day photo shoots are a great gift idea for the Mum that has everything! Mother’s Day photos are personal, fun, loving, and they last a lifetime! Which is why Ness and Tony booked on a Mother’s Day photo shoot a few weeks before Mother’s Day so that they could print the photos off for Tony’s Mum as a Mother’s Day gift! Very wise thinking!

portrait photography family photography

 

 

 

 

Wellington Point was our location of choice (it is one of my favourite locations for family portrait photography in Brisbane) and headed to the centuries-old fig trees and started snapping. The guys were amazing! Everyone looked at the camera, smiled and didn’t misbehave! Even the kids were patient and weren’t distracted by the play park!

family photos portrait photography

 

 

 

 

 

I got some lovely family photos first and then a few photos of the kids together, including some lovely individual photos, then sent them off to play whilst I got some shots of Mum and Dad being cute! Aaaahhh, I remember those pre-kid days!

We were soon joined by Tony’s brother Matt and his lovely wife and continued snapping – I usually expect around 15 minutes of good photo time before boredom and itchy feet kick in and the specialist tactics take place, but in spite of having a 4-year old with us, we were still able to shoot for much longer!

family photo shoot family photography

 

 

 

 

 

I got some couple photographs and some family photos then stood back and got some more spontaneous, unposed photographs with the long lens as the family played and laughed. But sure enough where there’s boys and trees, the guys soon started climbing and swinging and generally being monkeys! No problems, I thought, I’ll grab some nice photos of the adults…hang on, Tony and Matt were up the tree too!

I used to struggle with what to get my Mum for Mother’s Day but every year we give her something fun and personal: a photo canvas of the grandkids, a photo book of her last visit, or some beautiful framed prints. After all, they are timeless and just keep on giving and no mother ever tires of photos of her children or grandkids!

As a Dad of two beautiful but energetic kids, I know what a massive task it is to get them dressed and ready to go anywhere, let alone to get them to smile for photographs at the end of it! That’s why I am more than happy to travel to your home or suburb and do a family portrait photo shoot there – which is precisely what we did for Frances and David’s awesome family a few weeks ago! And newborn photography? Yeah, I’m a sucker for that too!

family photographs family portrait family photos

Frances called me the day before asking when I would next be available to take some newborn photos. As it happened I was free the next day and going to be in the area, so headed north to Bridgeman Downs on what turned out to be a hot and humid day! Just one week earlier, Frances and David had had their third child and wanted to grab some family photos whilst she was still brand new! I was met at the door by their two older children Olivia and Sebastian, and their (very!) patient cat, Sooty! I grabbed a few shots of the guys posing for the camera before the new arrival appeared and quickly took centre stage!

The kids clearly loved their baby newborn sister and it was genuinely heart warming to watch them cuddle her and hold her close. Mum and Dad soon joined us for some full family shots, using the fantastic diffused light coming in through their French doors. With the right tools and the right know-how, you can get great family photos even on a bright and sunny morning!

They say you should never work with kids and animals but these guys were awesome and an absolute pleasure to photograph! Even Sooty posed for the camera! We grabbed a few shots of the girls whilst the boys played in the background and burnt off their excess energy, then it was Mum and Dad’s turn to get some photos with their newest arrival.

I always encourage getting some photos of just the kids together; they can be the hardest photos to get (depending on the time of day and the weariness of the kids!) but there is something absolutely adorable about seeing siblings playing together and interacting with each other; especially if there is a newby on the scene! And watching Olivia and Sebastian being so delicate with their new sister was genuinely heart warming to see.
