Outdoor Photography Sessions

Sydney outdoor maternity newborn and family photography images

When was the last time you existed in a photograph with your kids... one that wasn't a selfie...? If it's hard to recall a time, then it means you are due for one of our natural, fun filled, laughter inducing outdoor photo sessions! Children weren't designed to sit still and pose, so I never expect them to. I am totally prepared to run around after them, encourage you to play with them, spin them around, make them giggle that contagious belly laugh that gets you every time. These are the moments you want to relive when your children are all grown up and are too big to spin around, let alone pick up!

Our outdoor photo sessions are kept simple and are carefully structured by me to ensure you get the most authentic connections with each other during our session time. To capture that gorgeous golden glow you see in most of my images, I schedule sessions in the afternoon or evening, just an hour before sunset. Some locations in Sydney also work just as well with morning light, so if an evening session is not possible, I can suggest some locations that would suit a morning session instead. Sessions generally run for close to an hour and start at either 3:30pm outside of daylight savings (April-September) or from around 6pm during daylight savings (October - March). Morning sessions are from 7am.

If you are unsure of how your little ones will be with a late session, I guarantee that they are not going to notice they are out past their bedtime. They are going to be caught up having so much fun, bedtime will be the last thing on their minds. I promise you, the small break in their routine will be completely worth it when you see the resulting images!

Because I only schedule outdoor sessions on Saturdays (a maximum of 4 per month), it is a good idea to book well ahead of time so as to avoid disappointment, as I can book out months in advance.
