Here at A Thousand Miles Photography, we specialise in affordable Newborn Photography Brisbane. I am a Dad to two beautiful munchkins myself so know too well the joys of a newborn baby! Even with the lack of sleep, there is nothing more amazing than those newborn baby cuddles!
Those early days fly by all too quickly and an affordable newborn photography session is the best way to keep those memories forever!
Our affordable newborn photography sessions are a 2-hour session that allows for plenty of time for crying, melt-downs, changes, and feeding, and the relaxed pace makes the shoot easy and rewarding for Mum and Dad! It also means we can do a change of clothing, add a few toys or teddies into the photos, and even allows for some photos with Mum and dad, siblings and fur babies!
Our affordable newborn photography shoots are done at your own home! Yep! You don’t even have to leave the house! We just need a small space to set up in, and we can do the rest!
The success rate of doing the baby photo session in your own home is so much higher than at a studio! You will always have spare nappies, blankets and clothes on hand, and Bub will be more familiar with her surroundings and with a more relaxed Mum and Dad!
Our 2-hour baby photography shoot is just $399, and includes around 40 high resolution digital images. And there is no additional minimum spend on prints! How refreshing is that!
If you like what you see and would like to lock in a session please don’t hesitate to contact me – I would love to hear from you!
If you are looking to capture those precious early days when your baby is at her tiniest, you need the best newborn photographer Brisbane! We have over ten years of experience photographing babies and newborns, and being parents ourselves, you know you are in good hands!
Our newborn photography packages include a 2-hour newborn photography session at your own home, and around 40-50 high resolution digital images. Coming to you means we reduce the stresses of moving a newborn to a new location, and being mobile means we bring our blankets, baskets and wraps to you! We always encourage having a few outfits on hand, as well as a handful of teddies and keepsakes to have in the photos – we love those personal touches!
Our newborn photography sessions generally start with some photos of Bub curled up in our blankets or wraps, but with any newborn shoot, flexibility is the key! If Bub is having a moment and needs Mum or Dad’s attention then we can do some family photos first and move onto the solo baby photos when Bub is settled!
The best newborn photographer will always welcome input and ideas. You are welcome to send through some example photos that you like the look of that we can recreate, and we are always welcome to the idea of heading outdoors for some family photographs too!
Our newborn photography packages start at $399.00 for a 2-hour session at your own home. Why not contact us to lock in your date and capture those precious early days!
Booking in for a couples photo shoot with A Thousand Miles Photography will provide you with a fun and affordable way to spend an hour, and will provide you with some amazing memories that will last a lifetime!
Blessing and Taiwo booked in a couples photo shoot at Wellington Point Reserve, one of my favourite spots for couples photography, and were absolutely amazing to photograph! They had their poses worked out, laughed the whole time and made the session an absolute blast!
The guys mentioned they had recently got engaged so the couples photo shoot quickly turned into an engagement photo shoot! Blessing and Taiwo even brought along a change of clothes for a greater variety of photos! Luckily Wellington Point Reserve even has changing rooms!
We started at the amazing Moreton Bay Fig trees, then headed to the jetty for some bay photos. The best thing about Wellington Point Reserve is the variety of backdrops available! I love the mixture of blues, greens and browns that add huge variety to the photographs.
I loved how we managed to get a great variety of photos – some posed shots, plenty of candid photos, and some amazing belly laugh pictures! They are always my favourites! The guys were a little reluctant to do any solo photos at first but absolutely nailed it once they had relaxed and settled into their poses!
The one hour photography sessions always go so quickly! But they are so much fun! Our photographer, Andy, thinks he’s pretty funny (he isn’t!) and keeps the sessions relaxed and light, and will offer advice and pointers for posing and locations, but always welcomes any input, thoughts and ideas!
We offer one hour couples photography sessions for $199 in the mainland Redlands. This also includes around 50 high resolution images with no hidden extras or add ons! For other locations please click here!
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!
OMG they look amazing!! So many favourites. So beautiful. You have done such an amazing job. Thank you again. We will definitely be back
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!
I was lucky enough to do a family photo shoot in Wellington Point Park with Greg, Jen and their beautiful daughter Madeleine – the weather was perfect for family photography and Madeleine was an absolute dream to photograph!
It was a gorgeous, clear afternoon with beautiful low sun, which made for some amazing low light shots – check out the reflections and sea view backdrops in these portrait photos!
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!
Thanks very much for the photos Andy… They were fantastic. Cheers, Greg
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!
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!
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!
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!
I love close up shots – capturing the details on a newborn photo shoot – and can this little dude grip on to Mum’s hand!
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!
We grabbed some photos on the stairs, the couch and then headed outside to a fantastic mango tree.
Hi Andy, thanks for the photos, they look very good, I already heave done a bunch of printouts.
But altogether thank you for your service, you jumped even with such a short notice. Gyorgyi
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!
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!
And then all too quickly the hour was up and we were saying goodbye! It was an awesome family portrait session and a great start to the day! Thanks so much for being so much fun and so relaxed, especially at that time of the morning, and I hope to see you for another family photo session again soon!
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 and David’s Family Portraits
Date: 30th December 2016
Location: Wellington Point
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!
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!
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!
Is there anything more beautiful in a family photo than the smiles of a newborn?!
And after an awesome session amongst the tree roots, we headed to the jetty for a different flavour. And then all too sudden the hour was over and I headed home to do some editing (and to get over the jetlag!)
“I wanted to thank you for taking such amazing photos of us!
I am so happy I found you to do our photos. As I mentioned before, we had a fabulous relaxing time in the afternoon and your photos were amazing!” Zsofi
