Childrens Photography Session for Cady

Childrens photography

We absolutely love childrens photography and this child portrait session for 8 year old Cady is no exception. It was such a lot of fun to do and Cady had a ball playing princess, getting dressed up and generally being the centre of attention. We had just received our order of girls dresses and Cady was perfect to try out several of them during this session for us. Our child size violin made a wonderful prop and coincidentally, Cady is starting to learn the violin, so that worked out.

Cody’s mum was over the moon with the images and will have stunning photographs to remember her little girl by and show to Cady’s children far in the future.

We have dresses, props and accessories her for girls aged 5 – 10 so you do not have to spend a fortune on dresses if you don’t have any. Just check with me on sizing first. You are most welcome to bring in your own outfits, accessories and props also and we can design your perfect child portrait session.

Child portrait session for 8yr old Georgie

child-portrait-georgie-1

Georgie’s mum bought her into us for a model folio and child portrait photography session and we fell in love with her look and her infectious personality. Georgie was so incredibly easy to photograph and she loved being in front of the camera. She was patient and followed instruction to the letter. We could not have been happier with the results and we are sure that if given the opportunity any modelling work that she will do amazingly.

We have only been offering child portrait sessions for a short time and already both Dean and I thoroughly enjoy photographing them and we absolutely love the results. We have been lucky enough to photograph some amazing children so far. We have some sweet dresses available so let me know your daughters size to see if we have something special to fit. We also offer child portrait sessions for boys.

Your children will grow so quickly and this wonderful time in their life will pass you buy before you know it. We would love to give you stunning portraits of your child that you will be proud to hang on your wall and enjoy for decades to come.

Here are some kind words from Georgie’s mum.

“Dear Karen & Dean,
I’ve been meaning to send this message ages ago but end of school year got on top of me. I wanted to thank you so much for giving Georgie such an amazing experience! Apart from making us incredibly proud of how well she handled the shoot, you also gave us the joy of looking at her photos, that capture the intensity of her little spirit.
However more importantly, you did something even larger than our joy and pride. You both created an opportunity for Georgie to see herself in a different way. Georgie has always had lots of comments about her looks- and we’ve always told her beauty on the outside is nothing if you’re not beautiful on the inside! Georgie has known that she has a kind heart & earns lots of praise from teachers and coaches for her compassion, kindness and ability to make other people feel valued and important. What Mark & I didn’t realise is that she didn’t ‘know’ she was beautiful on the outside as well. She looked at those photos in awe and said,” I am beautiful – I didn’t think I was – but I am! ” 
I wanted to take the opportunity of giving you feedback. You were both exceptional at making  us all feel comfortable with the whole process. You given us much joy. 
I hope you both enjoy a relaxed & joyful Christmas.
Cheers 
Jac”

Newborn photography session for baby Abbie

newborn photography brisbane gold coast abbie 012

Newborn photography is a favorite style of ours. 18 months ago we photographed baby Harrison for first time parents, Jess & Adrian and this week we had the honour of photographing their second child, little baby Abbie.

Abbie was adorable and after a bit of an awake time she settled into a nice calm sleep, allowing us to get the images we need for the very proud parents.

Our studio is based conveniently between Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Redlands and Ipswich which means it is not too far to travel. The best times for newborn images are day 7 – 14 whilst bub is sleepy and still nice and bendy.

If you would like information and pricing on a newborn session please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.

Pregnancy & newborn photography session for Alicia

004 Alicia maternity newborn photography

Today Alicia brought her beautiful baby girl, Arabella in for her newborn photography session, along with her husband Tony. Little Arabella was so sweet and well behaved today which made our job very easy. We would like to thank Alicia & Tony for allowing us to display these images.

005 Alicia maternity newborn photography

Alicia had come to us at 32 weeks for her pregnancy photography session. She was just beautiful and so easy to photograph and it was amazing to see her back after 9 weeks with baby Arabella.

Pregnancy images are best done around 33 – 35 weeks. This way we have a nice big bellow without risking missing the event due to early labour.

The best time to photograph a newborn baby is between day 7 and 10, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle, a little less sleepy, and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact us at any time during your pregnancy for a chat and let us know an estimated due date. We will then make a tentative booking and once you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby, simply contact us to arrange a suitable date for your session.

We have fabrics as well as a cream and black robe available for your use and you are welcome to bring your husband/partner in for your session.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that a pregnant belly was hidden away and would definitely not be seen on a living room wall, but thankfully now, pregnancy photography is celebrated and cherished. Let us capture this special time for you with our expert posing, styling and editing and give you some amazing images that you will be proud to display in your home and pass onto your children and grand children.

Our maternity packages will begin with a relaxing makeover for the expectant mum, followed by a 1 – 2hr photography session, taken at your pace as we know that your not as mobile as you once were at this time. You can choose from mounted photos, folio box, albums, coffee table books and wall art, all of which will come with the digital versions of each print, or you may choose a digital only package.

If you would like information on a session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.

Here you will find our babies and bumps gallery.

If you would like any information or pricing on a pregnancy and/or newborn session please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or email via this link.

Family photography session for Rebecca from Mackay

Family photography 005

Rebecca and Ashley brought their girls to the Gold Coast for their annual holiday and while they were there they came to us for a glamour/family photography session.

We photographed some glamour for Rebecca, some romantic couples images just for them and then photos of the girls and the family together. Missy and Jaydah had a lot of fun with the dress ups and Missy was a natural in front of the camera. I think she was disappointed when her turn was finished.

As we have a lot of sets and several studio spaces it is easy to combine several styles of our work into the one session which is especially handy for clients who are travelling from afar as we can cover all of their photography desires in the one sitting.

If you would like pricing on a glamour, couples or family session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or by email.

Mother & Daughter portrait photography session

Mother and daughter 003

Nicola and her daughter, 16yr old Isabella came in for a special mother/daughter session with us and they were a joy to photograph. Isabella was the first to use our new ivory tule skirt and although she was a little reluctant at first (she thought the skirt a little too ‘girly’), it ended up being her favorite image of the day.
