Family Photography Brisbane | Light and Shade Photography

Light & Shade Photography, Brisbane family photographer

Specialising in a mix of traditional and contemporary portraiture captured in artistic landscapes – Light and Shade Photography captures your family in a FUN and funky way that you will want to hang on your walls!

Queensland College of Art graduate Michaela O’Neill holds a Bachelor of Photography and has worked in the field for over a decade covering families from across Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. With 3 children of her own she knows how valuable it is to get everyone in the frame and looks to capture the authentic connection of your tribe.

I try to avoid the clichéd family photography and look for something more organic and contemporary that is unique to each family.

Tailored to you

Working with clients before the shoot to discuss the best Brisbane photo locations, the right styling and aesthetic, and also a time schedule to keep the kids happy is all part of the job. Michaela will also collaborate with you about your personal aesthetic and what style you are hoping for whether it is an urban expedition with street art edge or a more earthy shoot somewhere rustic as the sun goes down.

There is nothing better than having my work displayed in someone’s home where people get to see their memories and my pricing is reflective of that.

Light and Shade Photography Reviews

We did a photo shoot with Michaela with our 3 year old and 1 year old. I wasn’t sure how the kids would go but the photos turned out fantastic – really natural, not staged, no matchy matchy clothes – the style was exactly what we were looking for and it was obvious that Michaela had worked with lots of families over the years as she had plenty of patience and ‘tricks’ to get the kids on board. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.” – Kelly and Anthony Quinn
I have been back time and time again for our family photo shoots over the years after finding Light and Shade. I cannot imagine using someone else as the photo are always magical and pure. they capture our moments in such a beautiful way. Not sure if it is a normal response but I get very teary looking at them! I’d hug you if I could! Thank you SO much!” – Michelle and Sam Mohammed
