Family Portrait Photography

Every member in your family is unique

I can fit in with you – I like to keep things simple and flexible.

Classic, simple clothing without busy patterns works best. For family portraits, try and be consistent by using a theme such as white shirts and denim.

If I’m photographing your newborn child, I recommend keeping it as natural as possible – there’s nothing more breathtaking than the soft, pure skin of a baby.

Every session is different, but I usually allow for about 1 hour.  If you have young children or infants, schedule a time and day when you’re not rushed (and they’re not cranky). Pick a time when they’re rested, calm and happy (i.e. meal and nap times best avoided).

Because I’m your sole photographer, I can get booked out 3 weeks to 3 months in advance. October to March is my busiest period. If you’re expecting and want me to photograph your newborn child, I recommend you call to book within the last few months of your pregnancy. Most people like to have their baby photographed within the first weeks after birth.

“I attempted to have my son photographed three times at the local shopping centre studio unsuccessfully.  My lively and very excitable little bundle of joy refused to sit still or cooperate for more than 2 minutes.  I made an appointment with Simone who was helpful enough to consider my child’s sleeping patterns. On the day I was still nervous that my son would not cooperate, however, Brett arrived and the nerves just disappeared. Over the next hour it was filled with lots of fun, laughter and play. A week later when my husband and I viewed the final results, I found myself both overwhelmed and speechless. The photos were brilliant and I felt so lucky and relieved to have captured my son at such a special and beautiful age.  Brett, your good nature, enthusiasm and passion for your work is to be admired. This is not only the best investment I have ever made, but a rare and priceless treasure to which we will enjoy and appreciate for years to come. Well done Brett Jacques!
