Family & Kids Photography

When you look at other people’s family photos (or even the ones on my website) do you think “my family won’t get photos like that, my kids never sit still or co-operate.’ Do these thoughts stop you from booking the photographer and so you just continue to use your phone to take photos of the kids?

Trust me, as a mum I have had those fears myself. BUT... as your photographer, I like it keep it simple.

The sessions will be quick + painless for your kids (and you). I ALSO GUARANTEE that you will get beautiful photos at the end.


I will gently direct you + your family to interact with each other in loving and playful moments. You'll run, jump, laugh and play. There will be less time looking at me, and more time enjoying each other. That is what this is all about, after all.  Meanwhile I'll simply capture the magic.

There are two options for family sessions with me. We can meet outside on location in Sydney or in your home. Each have their own unique style and benefits!

What happens at an in-home session?

Home is the place where you can feel most comfortable.  Shooting in your home, means every photo includes something that means something to you. No matter how big or small your home is, it doesn’t matter.  As long as I have a little bit of light and a family that loves each other, we can make amazing images.

Kids, by nature,  are messy and chaotic and real.  That is exactly what I want to capture.  Don’t worry about it. Trust me.  Just let them have fun!  That’s why this type of photography is so great!

What to expect

After we pick a date and time for your session, I'll send you information on what to wear and a client questionnaire so I can get to know you and your family better.

This is where my years of experience definitely come in handy. I’ve curated a great list of locations and have thought of everything, I promise! During your session, RELAX, let's have FUN and enjoy the moment. I want to make sure you look and feel great, so I am happy to answer any questions at any time.

Tara has done three photo shoots for us including family/newborn photos and all our photos are so beautiful, she really captures the moment rather than make you pose.
