Family Photography

Every family has a story, let us tell yours!

Our Family Photography is the ideal way of capturing moments in time and turning them into memories you can share for a lifetime. Let us capture them for you!

Families continually grow and change, and photos are a wonderful way to return to a moment that is otherwise gone or forgotten. Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. 

Our sessions are fun & friendly

We’ve designed our family photography sessions so they’re fun and stress free so we can capture REAL, authentic and candid moments. We want you to be YOU! There will be absolutely no lame posing or awkward moments. But I can guarantee lots of laughter, twirling, hugs and kisses!

Worried about the pressure of everyone behaving the way you’d like them to on the day?  Well, please don’t!!!  We are fun and friendly and have heaps of experience working with children, animals, and even grown-ups! We can turn even the most determined frown upside down!

Photos will be taken in a variety of combinations such as the whole family, just the kids, mum with the kids, dad with the kids, kids individually, etc. We have a vast selection of backgrounds and props, dresses and clothes to wear. 

After your session, we will arrange a time for a design and ordering appointment where you get to view your images for the first time and our Design Consultant will help you create the perfect artwork for your home.

"We all had such a great time with Laura, we were nervous about how it was going to go with a 2 week old and she made it such a breeze and got lots of smiles out of our little boy! We’ve just picked up all our prints and we absolutely adore them! 100% would do all over again and recommend to anyone!"

"Laura head been photographing our family for almost five years now. During this time we have her a newborn shoot, couples shoot, family session and also a few one-offs. Laura is great at putting out kids at ease and getting the best out of them on the day. The images she takes have always really captured our children's personalities and our photos always have a lovely sense of story and emotion to them that make you appreciate photography as an art form. The products are of an exceptionally high quality and we have really seen them as an investment worth saving for that will last a lifetime!"
