Relaxed Family Portraits - Sydney's Inner west

Christmas is fast approaching. What will you do or buy differently this year for your loved ones and family? There is nothing more unique a stunning than one of our family portraits. Mackintosh Photography has Gift Vouchers available for purchase from $200. And it includes a $100 photography credit to go towards purchase Art Prints  and Albums.

Just like the Gosling family featured below in this blog. They absolutely loved the photography experience. Because it was genuinely fun and relaxed. Not at all what they were expecting. That's because Justin Mackintosh our principal  photographer has been photographing people and capturing their portrait for nearly 15 years. He know's how to make people feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

Oh and dont forget the most cherished family member can also be in the portrait session. The family dog. Pet photography is pretty cool and fun too.

We can use your family home for the photography location, as this makes for a more of a personal touch. Or if you prefer a natural setting we often use some of the wonderful local Sydney Harbour side parks in Balmain, Birchgrove and Rozelle in Sydney's Inner West. We often photograph parents and families who came from overseas and they love to get the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Opera House in the background. After all it is a beautiful location.

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.  



Mackintosh Photography Sydney Family Portraits

The school holidays are a great time to have the family professionally photographed. Everyone is more relaxed and our photography studio has more photography sessions available during the week. 

Megan and Paul thought that too, when I photographed their family during the holidays. Megan's parents were also visiting the family from New York, so what a perfect time to update the family portrait! Extended family photo shoots are great fun and so meaningful. Its wonderful getting mum and dad, all the kids and off course the grandparents involved too. 

I love photographing kids with their parents having a fun time. Its so rewarding and priceless, helping my clients preserve their family's legacy.

I selected a great photography location near the studio in Rozelle. The park is at Birchgrove with stunning Sydney Harbour Views, the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney skyline. The park itself is right on the harbours' edge. You can even get you feet wet. Its such a wonderful place, lots of Sydney's famous sandstone, gum trees, the odd fisherman, and a large grassed area for the kids to run around on.

So for the next school holidays in winter, if you love candid, spontaneous and natural photo's of your children. Call the studio today and ask us about our winter special Offer.

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. 

Balmoral Beach Family Portrait

What a great day in sun at Balmoral beach in Sydney. i had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Cameron family. Here are a couple of favourite images from the photo shoot. I love shooting a mix of styles during a family portrait shoot. Especially special candid moments this selection.
