Family photography Inner West Sydney

I love photographing new young families. Full of energy and excitement. How cute is their little boy!

The Balmain peninsula has some wonderful portrait locations.  This young family lived locally in Rozelle so the relaxed photography session at Ballast Point in Birchgrove was natural choice for these guys. When photographing families it can be a nice idea to have the photography shoot in an area where they are currently living. For sentimental value. 

Outdoor Family Portraits - Sydney

Here's a wonderful family portrait shoot I photographed in beautiful Birchgrove overlooking Sydney Harbour. 

This young family was a local family from Balmain in Sydney. I like to tailor my photography portrait sessions to the individual families likes. This outdoor location was selected because they love relaxing there on weekends and the family dog Banjo loves the beach. So do the kids, the beach is always great fun. 

Like many Australian families, they are sometimes hesitant in having a family portrait session. We are too modest! I tell them prior to the shoot that, it will be very relaxed and we allow time for mum, dad, grandparents and the children to ease into the photography shoot.  I'm a relaxed kind of person and have had the pleasure of photographing families over the last 10 years. I promise the experience is one that you will love and enjoy.  I joke with them " that it's not like going to dentist" and always after the photo shoot, everyone says how much fun they had. 

With spring fast approaching, it's the perfect time to update the family portrait on the wall. And dare I say they make for awesome and unique Christmas gifts for family relatives.  

Beautiful Baby Photo shoot

One of the best and most rewarding things I love about been a photographer, is the ongoing relationships I have with my families. I photographed Amanda and Matt ‘s lovely Sydney harbour wedding at Jones Bay Wharf. And now they're the proud parents of baby Felix. I must have done great at their wedding. For them to want me back!! If you look carefully you can see one of their black and white wedding photographs in background.

For newborn or baby photos I usually prefer to do the photography shoot in the convenience of your home. In this case their apartment in Pyrmont. The reason I prefer home study portrait shoots, is because babies can be unpredictable with their sleep patterns and feeds. So its more comfortable for mum and baby to be at home.  I take my time with these shoots and if necessary mum can feed the child if they are unsettled. While this is happening I can photograph the other family members, like the babies brother or sisters.
