Children's Photography

Canberra styled studio baby sitter photography sessions (Baby first year photos) are ideal for babies 6 - 9 months who have mastered the milestone of sitting independently. Sitter Photography captures those huge gummy smiles, funny little personalities and the new found freedom of sitting. Our toddler and child portrait sessions are ideal for babies who are walking and for children who love exploring the Canberra outdoors. Teenager Senior Photography way better than any selfie you could possibly take.  A professional teenager photographer can capture the beautiful person your teen has blossomed into marking the transition into adulthood as your child enters his or her last years of school.

Our approach:

Our approach is simple.  We engage children on their level by engaging them in activities that appeal to their senses and stage of development.  Toddlers are busy little bees who love to explore everything. Authentic smiles and candid expressions come naturally when they are given the freedom to explore their natural surrounds.  We use a play based approach and are well equipped for to capture little ones who love to run. Shorter power sessions work best with toddlers.

We've  worked with a number of children with special needs ranging from Autism, Sensory Processing Disorders, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Physical disabilities and vision impairment. From time to time we offer themed mini sessions, glitter sessions and street or sports themed photography for teens.

Baby Sitter Photography:

Our baby sitter portraits (Baby first year photos) are perfect for babies between 6 - 9 months who are sitting independently but not yet crawling. At this age, babies haven't developed a sense of shyness and you can expect big gummy smiles, plenty of cute scrunched up noses and lots of giggles (not just from your baby!). Sitter photography is held in our warm cozy studio and includes use of our specially sourced props, accessories and backdrops. Shorter power sessions work best with this age group and sessions generally last up to one hour. We offer both full sessions (up to an hour) or mini sessions (30 minutes) for families wanting a smaller selection of images.

Toddler Photography:

Despite the label, these illusive little creatures are far from terrible and produce the most stunning photographs. By age two, most children are walking and establishing their language and gross motor skills. With this comes a new sense of independence which can often be confronting for children who do not yet understand their feelings and don't quite know the words to express them. Toddlers love to explore and produce authentic genuine smiles when they are able to move about during a photography session. Toddler photography sessions are held outdoors in one of the many beautiful locations around Canberra.

Children's Photography:

Enter the world of imaginary play and our philosophy is let them play! Our Children's photography sessions are less of a "sit here and smile" experience and more of a fun outdoor adventure for them held in one of the many beautiful locations around Canberra. During our pre-session phone consultation we aim to find out a little about your kids and their interests to incorporate the things they love into a fun play based session.

Teenager Senior Photography:

Teens have a greater sense of independence and like toddlers are establishing their own personal identity, self-esteem and working out where they fit in the world. It can be an extremely confronting and challenging time for them and for you too.

We involve teens in the creative process designing a conceptual shoot exploring the emergence of identity with the aim to make teens feel good about themselves by changing how they see themselves on the outside by showing them the amazing person those closest to them see on inside.
