Brisbane Family Photography with Light and Shade Photography
Light and Shade Photography specialise in quirky family portraiture that is FUN and funky and ready to hang as art on your walls.
“The days are long but the years are short and we want to capture the preciousness of your family before it whizzes past in a blur of giggles and sticky fingers.”
Light and Shade Photography specialises in unique documentary images that come from an enjoyable photo shoot experience where there are no forced smiles or bored kids! Shoots are tailored to the age of your children – whether you want to roam outdoors or have a slumber party shoot where you all snuggle under the doona with your newborn.
Who is Light and Shade Photography?
Premiere Brisbane child photographer Michaela O’Neill has three children of her own, so is well practiced in the art of kidplay. She also knows just how important it is to get images of your children in their most natural genuine state – “We try to avoid the clichéd family photography and look for something more organic and contemporary that is unique to each family.” Want to bring a set of crazy woodland animal masks and antler horns – Sure thing! Want to head to the local park and skim some stones into the creek or have an egg and spoon race – YES!
Before your photo shoot
Working with clients before the shoot to discuss the best Brisbane photo locations, the right styling including clothing and props, and also a time schedule to keep the kids happy is all part of the job. Michaela will also talk to you about your craziest and most hopeful ambitions for the shoot and you will collaborate together about some experimental ideas so your images stand out from the crowd.
Selecting a Location
There is a plethora of great photo locations around Brisbane. Whether it be an urban industrial inner city feel, or a farm styled picnic that you may have in mind, Light and Shade know where to go. Wet weather photo locations are also discussed in case of rain. “Lets chat and we can find the best way to capture your family in all their glory whether that be chasing a ball around, reading a favourite story, or just watching the sun go down together.” – Michaela.
Packages available with Light and Shade Photography
Competitive all-inclusive packages are available with full access to your digital files, or you can have Light and Shade do all the enlargements and framing for you. You can even plan sessions to fill a certain spot on the wall or space in the home, with personalised gallery arrangements, canvas prints, framed prints, and albums all available.
Light and Shade Photography Gift Vouchers
Light and Shade Photography gift vouchers are available as an excellent Mother’s Day, Christmas, Baby Shower, or Birthday present idea for the loved ones in your life – especially the mamas!
Newborn and Maternity Photography
Brisbane newborn photography packages and Brisbane maternity photo packages are also available. It is advised that you book within the first two weeks of your little one’s arrival, as this is the best time to take photos of a newborn whilst they are nice and sleepy – so make sure you book in early!
“This is your story, so if you connect with our work and would like us to be a part of telling yours, then we would love to work with you! I hope to meet you all soon!” – Michaela, Light and Shade Photography.
