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.

Brisbane Newborn Photographer – Jasmine

Brisbane Newborn Photographer:

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

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

Maybe it’s because I’m a Dad that I love doing newborn photography so much! Or maybe it’s just because squishy newborn babies are just so cute and much fun to photograph!

Melissa and Zane emailed me a few weeks ago asking if I was free to photograph their beautiful new arrival – and just how beautiful is she!

And she was so well behaved too! She didn’t mind having a stranger taking baby photos, and even slept most of the time! Melissa did very well and made my job a lot easier well by having the room nice and warm and she had given her beautiful girl a good feed before I got there!

Melissa and Zane got married a year ago so their wedding rings were brought out for a few photos! What an incredible selection of photographs they will have from this last twelve months: wedding photos and newborn photos! I know I’m biased but I really can’t emphasise the importance of capturing these milestones – having a family portrait photography session once a year really does allow you to look back in years to come and remember more clearly what everyone looked like and how everyone’s changed!

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!

Her big brown eyes make for gorgeous portrait photos and I think my faves are actually the ones where she is awake!

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.

Gen and Regan’s Toowoomba Wedding

Toowoomba Wedding: Gen and Regan’s Perfect Day!:

Date: 14th February 2016

Location: Vacy Hall and Gip’s Restaurant, Toowoomba

toowoomba wedding photography toowoomba wedding photographer toowoomba photographer

Being a Brisbane-based wedding photographer means that I can cover a lot of locations within a relatively short drive; Gold Coast weddings, Sunshine Coast weddings, Brisbane weddings and, as in Gen and Regan’s case; Toowoomba weddings. A lot of people assume that I have extra travel fees to photograph their wedding in Toowoomba (I don’t!) or assume that I won’t travel up the range (I will!), so I don’t get to head up as often as I’d like, but I do like the leafy streets, the cooler air and the beautiful venues they have up there. Just ask Gen and Regan, an awesome couple I photographed on Valentine’s Day this year!

I headed to the boys first and grabbed a few shots of the guys fine-tuning their wardrobe – tieing laces, tieing ties and fastening cufflinks. The boys were high spirited and excited and were loving the chance to dress up and to laugh at each other’s attempts at formal attire!! We did a few nice posed shots outside, then it was off to see how the girls were shaping up!

I drove fifteen minutes to the gorgeous Vacy Hall where Gen and the girls were relaxing, having had their hair and make-up done earlier in the day. I had never had the privilege of photographing inside Vacy Hall before, but wow! What a stunning location. The decor is amazing and elegant, and was an absolute treat for a wedding photographer like myself!

Gen was in an incredibly relaxed mood and played with her new-born daughter as her bridesmaids whirled and organised around her! The colour theme for the wedding was purple, and could be seen in the dresses, the boy’s ties and waistcoats, and Gen’s incredible hair! Awesome!

I find that allowing preparations to take their course works best for the pre-Wedding photos: too much stopping, starting and posing throws everyone off their balance and increases nervousness, so it’s much better to stand back and capture everything unfold. More often than not, any relaxation is kicked into touch the moment the dress is on and the bridesmaids are fastening the straps – suddenly everything becomes real as action time looms!

Save for one zip-based mishap, the girls were ready with plenty of time to spare so we grabbed some shots both inside Vacy Hall and on the deck outside, careful not to be seen as the ceremony was just across Russell Road in the garden of Gip’s Restaurant! Gen’s brother, David, came to check that things were running smoothly; the poor guy had the twin responsibilities/privileges of walking Gen down the aisle and being MC for the evening!

Gen and Regan had recently had a beautiful little girl (congratulations Guys!) so I was able to grab a few shots of Mum and daughter before heading across the road to the beautiful grounds of Gip’s Restaurant, built next to a gorgeous mansion dating from 1860, where the ceremony was due to start. And what a day it was for a wedding! Not a cloud in the sky and a balmy (for Toowoomba!) 33degrees! The congregation had gathered, the boys were attaching their coursages; all that we needed was our bride!

The garden set up was spectacular, and the amazing floral arrangements complimented the location. As 3 o’clock ticked past, Regan started to look nervous, checking his watch and looking over his shoulder to Vacy Hall! But her wedding day is one occasion a bride is allowed to be late, and at 3.05pm on Valentine’s Day, Gen arrived on David’s arm and walked down the aisle to marry the man of her dreams! The look on Regan’s face couldn’t have been better!

We spent a short while outside making the most of the glorious light – I grabbed some sneaky shots of the girls chilling out as the boys were being photographed; I don’t think they stopped laughing all afternoon!

It is the interior of Vacy Hall where everything comes alive – the decor is old colonial and no detail is left out. I loved it: the furniture, props, four-poster beds. The time just went too fast!

After we ditched the congregation following the ceremony, they had stayed on the lawn for canapes and drinks (nice!) so after an hour or so of photographs, we went to join them. It was such a lovely way to mingle and catch up with friends; and each other! All too often the first time the bride and groom get to chat to each other on their wedding day is after the guests have all gone home and I openly advocate spending just 10 – 15 minutes without friends, family, photographers (!!) and just sit and chat as husband and wife!

Ten minutes before the reception is due to start, I always duck into the venue to grab some shots of the room looking its best before bread crumbs, wine and handbags get dispersed around the tables! And what a room this was! The James Taylor Room at the adjoining Clifford House takes some beating with its high arched windows and beautiful French doors. The decoration was elegant and purple, and the cake (which I got to taste at the end of the night!) was amazing!

It is always a good idea to let your photographer have a run sheet for your reception. It has never happened to me happily but you don’t want your photographer to be in the loo or photographing the exterior when the speeches start or the cake is being cut! Happily the reception was well masterminded by David and ran (pretty much) on time!

There were tears from Gen’s teenage daughters as they warmly welcomed Regan to the family, and luckily (for Regan) not too many embarrasing truths were rolled out during Cam, the best man’s, speech!

The cake cutting followed, and then the most nerve-racking moment for many couples: the first dance! But there were no nerves here, or if there were they didn’t show any and the dance floor was soon filled with guests for the remainder of the night.

Zeinab and Ayman’s Wellington Point Family Portrait Photo Shoot

Family Photo Shoot: Zeinab and Ayman’s Wellington Point Session:

Date: 3rd February 2016, 10.30am

Location: Wellington Point, Redlands

cheap family photographer affordable photographer

family photosThe biggest issue with being a family portrait photographer is that you never get photos of your own family! Oh, the irony! Most photographers are infinitely more comfortable directing people from behind a camera than posing in front of one, and then there’s the critique aspect: why is the photographer doing that? Why are they standing there? And how much are those prints gunna cost?! So in spite of having two kids (a 4 year old boy and 4 month old little girl), the only photos we have are the one’s we have taken ourselves! And aren’t I constantly reminded about it?! So my advice is this: if you have a family, have some professional portrait photos taken! You won’t regret it. I promise.

family portraits kid photography

Zeinab and Ayman certainly didn’t! We met at a warm and slightly cloudy Wellington Point a few weeks ago and after a brief chat to ascertain the sort of photographs the guys were looking for, we started snapping! Wellington Point jetty is a fantastic place to start and makes for a fantastic backdrop, and luckily we had it all to ourselves that day. As is always the case with family portrait shoots, the star of the show was Eleny, Zeinab and Ayman’s beautiful daughter! Fresh from a snooze and raring to go, she smiled for the camera as we captured some beautiful child portraits and then added Mum and Dad (better get them in a few I suppose!)

The guys looked fantastic in matching black and white, and Eleny looked so cute with her little bow. Shame it spent more time off her head than on it! The sun eventually came out so we headed to arguably my favourite spot in Brisbane for family portraits: Wellington Point’s amazing Moreton Bay fig trees. They look more like something from Lord of the Rings then Brisbane’s bayside, with their gnarled and twisted roots, but aside from looking great, they provide shade; a very good thing on a warm day like today!

I let the guys be themselves for a while and stood back with the big zoom and captured the family as they laughed and chatted – Eleny loving being on dad’s shoulders and playing with his hair!

moreton bay photographs manly photographer 0V7A1366x

brisbane photographer affordable photography natural family photos

I find that the best photos from any family shoot are the natural, spontaneous ones; there isn’t the stigma and awkwardness of posing (especially when there’s young kids!) and reactions become more relaxed and authentic.

professional photo shoot family pics

Of course, there is a place for some nice posed photographs with everyone looking at the camera, and although the hardest to capture are probably the ones you will put on your wall.

I also made sure I got some photos of Eleny with Mum and Dad separately – it’s lovely to watch how kids interact with each parent (and makes for a great Facebook profile pic!). Usually dads will start launching children into the air, whereas Mums go for cuddles. Both make for great shots and I always encourage interaction!

From this point, Little Eleny started to tire so again I stood back and captured her as she cuddled into Ayman’s shoulders – how beautiful:)

Just a few more shots by the carpark and the hour was suddenly over – it’s amazing how quickly the time goes, but the guys got some lovely memories and can look back at the photos when Eleny turns 5, 10, and 21 and remember how great she looked and what a beautiful family they make!

“Hi Andy, I have just gone through the CD and absolutely love the images! Really beautiful moments captured. Thank you again!” Zeinab
