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!

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.

I knew Kelly and Rob from a couples photo shoot we had done earlier in the year so I leapt at the chance to capture Amelia, their beautiful new arrival!

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

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.

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!

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!

baby photography baby photos

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!

When Sam sent me an email asking if I could do a couple’s photo shoot in Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens, I didn’t need asking twice! It is one of my favourite spots in my favourite city in the world and I jumped at the chance!

professional portrait photography professional portrait photography brisbane

I met Sam and Todd on a warm January day, introduced myself, had a chat and dived into the photos! Although it was a warm day, it was perfect conditions for a couple’s photo shoot – slightly overcast and nice and bright.

It also helped that the botanic gardens were in full bloom; colour adds amazing depth to a couples photo shoot and makes for a fantastic backdrop.

The botanic gardens have some incredible locations for couple photos, but my favourite spot must be Fig Tree Avenue!

After capturing some beautiful couple photos in the park itself, we headed down towards Eagle Street for some photos with the Brisbane River and the Story Bridge as a backdrop. The breeze was fantastic and the light was amazing!

I always like to grab a few couple photos just outside the Botanic gardens on Alice Street, where the banyan trees have started to reclaim the fence!

I love photographing weddings in Brisbane! There are just so many locations for great photos, and when you have a gorgeous couple like Rebecca and James, my job becomes very easy indeed!

I had met this beautiful couple before; I was lucky enough to do an engagement shoot for them and jumped at the chance to capture their big day!

We met at the shiny new Registry Office on Ann Street, a great place for Brisbane Wedding Photography, and grabbed some photos of the amazing view!

And then Rebecca walked in! Rebecca was a stunning bride, and James a dashing groom! The ceremony was touching and intimate, and after a few family photos outside, we headed to Eagle Street for some photos of the newly married couple!

As the newlyweds headed to Eagle Street for a post-wedding celebration, I walked through the Botanic Gardens and thought how amazing Brisbane Wedding Photography really is! With the almost unlimited amazing photography locations, I consider myself very lucky to be able to do a job I love in a city I adore! Being a wedding photographer is a privilege I will never take for granted and I have to pinch myself every day when I think about where I am based doing what I love doing!

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!
