Baby Photographs: Amelia’s Baby Shoot
Date: April 2017
We all love baby photographs! Newborns are so photogenic, so cute and so cuddly and it is every Mum and Dad’s wish to capture some amazing baby photographs of their beautiful newborn before they get too big!
Happily A Thousand Miles Photography specialise in baby photographs and newborn photography and can capture your beautiful new arrival in the comfort of your own home! We have several newborn photography package options, including the option of visiting our studio in Alexandra Hills, and for us to do the photo shoot in the comfort of your own home!
We have a fantastic array of blankets, wraps and baskets to make the shoot run smoothly and we do recommend bringing along any toys and props that you would like to have in the photographs.
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 did the photos at their place in Birkdale and were rewarded with great light and a well behaved Little Miss!
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:
Location: Wynnum West
Date: January 2018
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!
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!
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!
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:
Date: 17th February 2018
Location: Wellington Point
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.
Redlands Photographer: Shahn and Joe’s Engagement Shoot
Location: Wellington Point
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!
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!
A photo shoot in the Redlands starts at $99 at our Alexandra Hills Studio, with a Wellington Point on-location photo shoot starts at $119, both packages include your high resolution images on a disc! For more information and inclusions, click below or give us a call! We would love to capture you looking amazing!

Baby Photography: Xavier’s 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!
We have two options for baby photography and newborn photo shoots; come to our studio in Alexandra Hills or we can come to you! We will bring along some blankets, baskets and wraps, and by all means feel free to bring along a change or two of clothes and some toys or props!
A two-hour newborn package starts at $299 (including your high resolution images on a disc!), and you can get more information at the below link!

Couples Photo Shoot: Brisbane Botanic Gardens
Date: 3rd January 2017
Venue: Brisbane Botanic Gardens
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!
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!
Brisbane is a fantastic location for a couples photo shoot, and with our photography packages starting at $179 with your high resolution images included, we can capture you looking amazing without having to remortgage the house to do so!
All of our couples photo shoot packages are location and time priced and can be accessed on our portrait photography page

Brisbane Wedding Photography: Rebecca & James’ CBD Wedding
Date: 14th January 2017
Location: Brisbane CBD
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!
It was a very hot day that day and the mercury nudged 40 degrees! But the guys smiled through the sunshine and looked amazing by the Brisbane River!
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!
