Kate made the whole experience so easy, natural & organic. We were so comfortable that the camera started clicking before I knew it. We went in thinking we would just buy 3-5 pictures but ended up buying our entire session because they were all so beautiful. Thank you so much & we are so delighted to be able to share these with our family & friends. Our walls are just going to be covered in these photos!


Family sessions are held either in the studio (for smaller families or those with very young kiddos), at your family home or at our fave forest and field location (we are also offering beach sessions too!). Studio sessions give more flexibility in terms of times of day and weather (because the light is always amazing) but outdoor sessions provide beautiful backdrops especially as the weather changes from season to season.

We photograph our forest and field sessions at a gorgeous location near Blackwood in the Adelaide Hills, and our beach sessions are held at Port Willunga Beach.

We open a number of sessions during the school holidays for our school age families, so just let us know if this would work best for your family but please book early as the school holiday availability does book up quickly.

Family and outdoor/location sessions are charged at $285. This includes the session itself, travel (within 20 minutes or so of the studio if we are coming to your family home), full editing of your images and presentation of your final images at your design and ordering appointment, as well as a matted 8×10″ art print valued at $195. Check out the ‘step by step’ guide for further information, you can purchase your session over here. (sorry digital files are not included in the session fee). The studio is tucked away in a little group of shops in the Adelaide foothills suburb of Torrens Park – with views to the ocean … we’re not going to lie. We LOVE our studio!

Tucked away in a quiet little group of shops that have been here for about 100 years (we’re almost not joking!) The natural light floats gently through the north facing window – it’s a calm and quiet place designed to make life simple and feel like home.

It might look a bit precious, but please don’t worry about bringing your toddler to the studio. There are toys to discover and fun to be had, and everything is surprisingly toddler proof!

There is all the coffee you could ever need (we live on the stuff) and an awesomely comfy couch. Come and relax and enjoy having your little family photographed

Anna Stephan:

I found Tania's website as I was researching photographers in Adelaide and her images immediately spoke to me. Not being from Adelaide, but wanting to have photos taken there by a local photographer, I decided to contact Tania to potentially arrange family portraits.

Right from the start she made me feel at ease, listened to what we - as a family - wanted and guided us through the whole process from start to finish with ease and expertise. The resulting images speak for themselves, we had our nearly 2-year old with us and the manner and professionalism Tania had made it a fun morning, in a stunning location.

I can only recommend Tania to anyone wishing to invest the time and money required in a truly professional photo shoot!!


When you are looking for something special - something a bit luxurious - to express the love of your family, you can be confident that Adelaide photographer, Tania Gaylor, will craft a family portrait of significance.

She will understand what you want (even if you don't), take you by the hand and give your family an experience that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.

You will laugh, you will cry... 

You will have so much fun...and your heart will burst with pride when you see the finished art.  Your family portraits will be filled with so much emotion and your featured portrait will make everyone in your family feel that they are a part of something important and special.

Imagine a statement piece or a featured gallery hanging in your home that says everything about your family.  Now imagine images on a USB!  There is no comparison.

Tania Gaylor specialises in capturing the essence of your family - elegantly and artfully - providing you a complete service so you can enjoy your family portraits hanging in your home as custom-designed art that portrays a legacy of Belonging...It says to your children/your family, "I Love You" and "You Belong Here".  There is no other piece of art, furniture or toy you can have in your home that will express love like a 'Tania Gaylor' portrait. It will say so much about you and your family in one of the most beautiful ways.

I just love making people feel good about who they are and what they have.  I especially love seeing how proud parents' are of their family.

​As you'll discover, I’m very different to most other photographers here in Adelaide because I am a Portrait Artist and it’s my mission to create the most stunning art-piece for you, that is full of emotion. . . and just happens to be of your family.

And this is something that we will uniquely create together.

I will hold your hand from the very beginning (from the initial design concepts), right through until your beautifully styled portrait is professionally framed and installed in your home.


This portrait won’t be like any other.  It will be stunning and artistic but most importantly it will send a strong message to your family of belonging and connection, as well as instilling the important family values of love, happiness & strength.  It will show everyone how proud you are of your family and what's most important to you.

​That's the power of my family portraits.

I am Amy, of Amy Spooner Photography and I am so glad you are here!  I am a mum of 3 and I am an absolute photo addict. I have turned this passion into my little business and I am loving every minute of it.

My approach to newborn photography is very relaxed and simple.  I use simple set ups, neutral colours and no props so that my focus is all on your family connection and your beautiful babies.

​My sessions are minimalist, simple and beautiful.  I swaddle babes and soothe them and gently position them, but, mostly I let them lead the show and try to capture what is unique to them. No two sessions will be the same as they are all about your baby! These sessions are often quick and run between 1-2 hours, so you can go back to your little newborn bubble at home.

Each session is as unique as you.

There are no forced or awkward posing in these sessions only gentle directions.

It is all about capturing you and your family as you are - the fun, the chaos, the love!​​

Lets embrace it and come away with gorgeous imagery that you can look back on as your family grows.

Maternity Sessions can take place in the studio or on location.

Family sessions take place on location.

Motherhood sessions take place in the studio.

We had photos done recently of my daughter who is 6, I hired Verity because I had such confidence in her work to be able to capture the beautiful innocence of Ella. She allowed us to use her gorgeous gowns and dresses for the session and she just knew exactly how to get Ella to work well to achieve what I can only describe as breathtaking photos that not only I will cherish but she will and her future children. Verity’s experience and knowledge of photography is second to none. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to capture these memories as perfectly as she has.


I am an award winning newborn and children's fine art photographer at state and national level and an accredited member of the AIPP (Accredited Institute of Professional Photography) which is regulated by the ACCC.   I am based in Coromandel Valley, (not far from Flinders University) in the Adelaide Hills, just 25 minutes from the City of Adelaide.

Newborn safety is paramount to me and I have the experience to pose and work with babies in a safe and comfortable way.  I keep my immunisations up to date and I possess a Child-Related Employment Screening Clearance with the DCSI. I have studied the Diploma in Photography with the Photography Institute & I have also attended workshops with world class newborn & children's photographers Kelly Brown, Little Pieces Photography (Brisbane), Mary Maloney, Pebbles & Polkadots (USA), Leah Robinson, (Melbourne) & Elena Shumilova (Russia).  I now offer mentoring & one on one workshops for photographers on newborn photography in my own style. I value your personal tastes with preferences towards colours and props in my images yet I am always filled with unique and fresh ideas often using a mixture of natural hand made items, fresh flowers and organic, soft wool layers. I have an extensive collection of quality backdrops, baskets & woven nests, soft textured blankets, beautiful bonnets, hats, beanies, headbands and wraps which I source from here in Adelaide, interstate, and worldwide.  I enjoy mixing and matching different textures together to enhance a beautiful background that is safe and comfortable for your baby and in which your baby will star! I have a solid understanding of Photoshop editing and prefer naturally edited images to enhance, not alter photographs too much.  I currently shoot with both studio and natural light for different effects.  I love colour and my photographs can be described as emotive, whimsical & ethereal!

We all had such a lovely and relaxing day at Deb Smith Photography... myself and my two best friends had a lovely girls day out where we were looked after extremely well... I had a slight interruption to my day where I had to rush off to the hospital for what ended up being a non- emergency and in my return Deb and my lovely girls had me relaxed in no time. Thanks for a lovely day Deb!


Hi, I’m Deb a headshot and family portrait photographer in Blackwood who enjoys working with busy mums who crave a bit more balance and me-time in their lives! If you can relate, then you’ll want to find out more about me to see if I’m the right photographer for you. I’m a dreamer, an empath and a real Crash Bandicoot. One late October afternoon I was photographing an engaged couple when I was struck by the beautiful warm sunlight emerging from the cloudy sky. I shouted “Quick! Run” and as I ran over to catch the light, tripped and fell into a mound of long grass. “Are you ok?” they asked, eyes wide. “It’s all part of the show,” I assured them!


Making people laugh is one of my charms, but I do love to inspire self-confidence in others. I dream of ways to empower women to see their value and share their light with the world.

As a portrait photographer, I get to help women of all ages to feel good about themselves. It’s tricky navigating our noisy social-media world and the insta-perfect pictures we’re bombarded with every day. We are all busy managing our families, working, sometimes achieving balance, and more often not.  I want to help you. It’s so worth getting dressed up, having your hair and makeup done, and trusting a professional to capture your family portraits. The best part is being able to take home portraits for your walls and albums to last for generations to come. And that’s what I do really well. When I was 9 I started saving for a caravan. The savings didn’t last but almost 40 years later I’m still chasing that dream of hitching up a van and travelling round Australia. I love a good road trip. My guilty pleasure is sipping coffee while people-watching at cafes. I also love searching through Instagram for inspirational quotes and productivity tips. For example, I love the Body Image Movement that’s helping to develop body-confidence in women, girls and teens all over the world. And it started right here in Adelaide. Before being a full-time photographer, I was an English high school teacher, so I’ve always felt comfortable engaging with kids and teens. I have two children on the Autism Spectrum, so I also understand that each child is an individual and should be treated as such. People tell me my superpower is making amazing portraits of women. It’s true – I am proud to be a curvy woman. I’m comfortable with my own body and I’m skilled at beautifully capturing yours. The idea of being photographed can be daunting. That’s why I provide an easy, relaxing, fun experience, which is equally important as the photos themselves.  With me, you and your family will feel safe and completely comfortable. I’ll help you every step of the way. Does this sound like you? Then get in touch as I’d love to chat!

Ellen Dangerfield:

Most patient and kind photographer in SA. Jackie is an absolute master of her craft and is great with little ones.


My days are filled with loud, crazy children. Two school boys and a

wiggly, twirling, three year old girl, plus an equally energetic golden

retriever named Jeffrey. Life is chaotic, fuelled by coffee, supported by adored friends and full of love. Life is grand in all its imperfections. I could spend eternity by the great Murray River, I have a slight obsession with indoor plants and flamingos and I do love a good reality show (think The Bachelor!). Oh and I may just have uprooted my family of five (plus the dog, Jeff and the Bearded Dragon, Ben) and moved them from their comfortable city life to a mud brick home in the Adelaide Hills. Let's see how this pans out! Life is a crazy, messy, love filled rollercoaster and I wouldn't have it any other way! Growing up an only child I always knew I wanted to be surrounded by children. I have been blessed with the 3 greatest gifts, who in turn are the reason I choose to photograph families the way that I do.I find beauty in the chaos of our every day lives. Our children are only small for such a short time. I love to capture the little things. Their favourite spot to sit and read, the suit of armour made of cardboard and the epic knights battle. The kisses on the sweetest smelling spot of a baby's head. Running through sprinklers on a hot Summer's day or snuggling under colourful rugs in winter. These are the things I want to remember with my own children. And these are the things I think all children should have the chance to look back on once they are grown.I have worked in the photography industry for my entire adult career. I have worked in very styled studios with big flashy lights. I have run a little studio/lab on the outskirts of zone 3 in London. I have worked for one of Adelaide's leading professional labs and I have run my own business in various forms for the past 10 years. By far, now is the best. Now I love what I do. I have figured out what my true photography love is and I think it shows.

Katherine is amazing! Her photos are simply stunning and she really takes the time to understand what you want out of the shoot. She also has the patience of a saint when it comes to uncooperative toddlers! We wouldn’t go anywhere else, we’ll definitely be back so she can capture our girls as they grow.


My name is Katherine and I am the proud owner, photographer and creative editor at Wish Photography.

I am obsessed with good coffee. I love a backyard barbecue. I could binge watch any reality TV show. I love eating chips when the kids go to bed. These are some of my favourite past times. But nothing beats a wintery Sunday afternoon, a wood fire burning, wine in hand and the children happily playing nearby.

As a young child I was fascinated with babies. It was no surprise that I went on to have 4 of my own.

My children are the reason I smile every day. From the moment each of them was born, they had distinct personalities and I became fascinated with capturing every little detail on film. 


I began my working career as a Registered Nurse. I wanted to work in an industry where I could make a difference in people’s lives. After 10 years of Nursing I made the switch to photography.  I found this more rewarding than I ever anticipated, and so Wish Photography flourished.

Capturing those precious moments that you share together is what we absolutely love to do, and we’re good at it!

Every family is different, so we take every step to make sure that we capture that wonderful spirit that only your family has. This involves a process where we truly take the time to get to know you and your family.

Therefore, we find that the best way to get to know each other and plan a truly unique photography session is with a phone call. Once you book your family photography session with us, we’ll then send an invoice to secure your booking.

Then, we’ll schedule another phone consultation to discuss locations, dates and bespoke styling for your family. All of our outdoor family photography sessions start 45 minutes prior to sunset. This last light of the day, known as ‘the Golden Hour’ is optimal for portrait photography, providing a beautiful light that can enhance the natural beauty of your family and add that wow factor to your photos. We have some weekends available, but they do tend to book out very quickly.

Thank you Melanie for our incredible photos! You captured so many precious moments for us to treasure for a lifetime. You made the whole experience fun and made our girls feel at ease straight away. We simply can’t thank you enough!


Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little more!

A love of nature, beautiful light, Adelaide sunsets (and sunrises- thanks to my darling kiddies!) and experiences of motherhood all translate deeply in my family portrait work.

I live in the suburbs of Adelaide with my hubby, two children - Henry & Evie Rose. I'm constantly inspired by the beauty of nature, gorgeous light, and the love shared between families. Childhood and family portraiture allows me to combine all of these things into a beautiful art form. With over 10 years experience working as a portrait and wedding photographer, I am able to create the soft, light and romantic look that I love. Outside of my darling kiddies and photography, I love running (Adelaide has the best trails!!) and cooking!  I can’t wait to meet you and your family! Mini-Sessions are a smaller (cuter), even easier version of my portrait sessions! 


They are perfect for an update of your family portraits, as a gift for someone (they make GREAT presents!) or no real reason at all. Mini Sessions are also perfect for families who aren’t ready to commit to a full session, but want to get a taste of a portrait session with me. Mini Sessions are exactly what they sound like: smaller versions of my portrait sessions. The sessions are shorter (30 mins) than my usual portrait sessions (60 mins) but a reduced session time does not mean reduced quality.  The images from Mini-Sessions are beautiful and will, of course, be my signature style. Sessions will be booked online and a comprehensive session guide will be sent to you upon booking. This will have everything you need to know about your session including what to wear, preparing for a successful session along with loads of tips and tricks to get the most out of your session.

Absolute professionals, friendly service and could not recommend Tanya and Mike enough! They've captured numerous events that I've either been a part of, or been at. The quality of work that they provide is second to none, from the planning stages of an event, to post-event, they are with you every single step of the way. I hope to continue having them ply their trade in many more events and milestones in my life! Thank you for everything you've given myself and my family so far!


Yes, we know people say that but we genuinely love our job. Every day brings a new adventure, we get to meet new people, learn new things and set ourselves new challenges.

We love being business owners, photographers and videographers and get a great deal of satisfaction in being able to create works that are able to immortalise the moments in life that are so important to our clients.

Being a family business means we get to work side by side each day, this is important to us because our business is such an important part of our life.

Our love for photography and videography extends to all parts of our life.

So, as our full-time photo and video business evolved we moved into photographing the world of live bands. Music is a large part of our lives. Those dim lights, the passion on the faces of the band members and the reactions of the crowds are some of our most treasured memories. Naturally progressing into videography helps us to tell your story that little bit more by capturing the present in video form as well.

Over the years the bands introduced us to extraordinary people whom we never thought we would get the chance to meet, some of which we have idolised since a young age, from here came weddings – friends weddings followed by new weddings in the dreamiest of places and so the adventure continues.

Having the privilege of living in different cities has taken on the most magical journey which now continues on for us both in residing in South Australia, spending loads of time in Melbourne and working Australia wide.Your family photography session will be just that, a lot of fun, a lot of smiles and lots of laughs. We love keeping these sessions fun, light and happy. While we’re doing this, we’re keeping an eye on the most interesting light and composition to make your photos as perfect as possible. Light, colour and composition are the aim of our session and to make your photos look natural and free flowing. Your images will be uniquely you with a little spontaneity added to the mix. That’s what makes you original and that is the exact ingredients you need to create and capture those lasting wall worthy moments.

I’m a lifestyle family photographer based in Adelaide, South Australia.

I create joyful, moment driven images of you and your loved ones, exactly as you are. Photographs that will fill your heart and your home with the little bits of magic that your kids bring to your everyday lives.

I am equal parts pragmatic and nostalgic, wrapped up in a pretty decent (somewhat dry) sense of humour. I am a mum of two, who are my everything (and also the reason I start each morning with a strong coffee, and end the day with a glass of full-bodied red).

I photograph to preserve moments in time. Honest and uncomplicated. You don’t need to have a fancy home or the perfect ‘on trend’ outfit. I want you to be unashamedly you, so I can show you just how wonderful that really is. Let’s capture the now, so it will be yours forever. I will work with you to plan your session, taking into account your preferences for location, timing and any special requests.  A typical session lasts between 1-2 hours at an outdoor location or in the comfort of your own home.  The sessions are relaxed and free flowing.  There is minimal posing and no forced smiles, rather I provide some gentle direction to ensure we make the best use of the environment and available light. Following your session please allow up to 2 weeks for your images to be edited.  You will then receive a link to access your online gallery where you can view all your images prior to ordering.   Ordering your digital images and prints is easy!  You can place your order via an online form that you will receive via email.  Alternatively, an in-person design and ordering session is also available in the comfort of your own home.  This is a great option if you would like some guidance on turning a digital file into a piece of art.  You will also have the opportunity to view samples of prints and frame styles and colour options that are available. I am all about joyful, moment driven images.  Images full of tenderness and quiet gratitude, that tell the story of your family.  By keeping things relaxed and fun, I create a comfortable environment where you are free to interact in a natural way with each other and your environment. There is minimal posing and no forced smiles, rather gentle guidance is provided during the shoot to ensure the available light and environment is used to its full potential to take your images to the next level. Your family, your story.

Hello, thank you for considering me to capture your family portraits!

​Family portraits can be done in my home studio in Vista, or your favorite park or beach. 

Below is a guide and hopefully answers all of the questions you may have 

about the family sessions I offer. 

Make sure the colours you are all wearing match, for example- all neutral colours, or all grey's and blues together or all light colours. I can send you a guide if you would like some ideas. Avoid large logos, stripes, checks and bold patterns.​If the weather isn't suitable for the date you've booked an outdoor portrait session, we can reschedule. I usually leave the final decision up to my clients whether they want to go ahead if the weather isn't perfect.​Yes I am available on the weekend if that is more convenient for you and your family. I have limited sessions available on the weekends so it is best to get in quick. Lifestyle Newborn Sessions capture natural authentic family photos in your home. Sessions are very relaxed with very little posing. I can capture all of the everyday things, like cuddling up on the couch, bathing baby, feeding baby in your nursery, you can even have photos with your family pets. 

My favourite thing about Lifestyle Newborn Photography is that the photos tell a beautiful story of this special time in your life. When your child grows up they will treasure these precious photographs taken in your family home.

Exceptional photographer, incredible images. Vanessa is a true professional and puts her heart and soul into her work, delivering outstanding results every time. She is personable and creates a relaxed atmosphere, allowing people to be themselves and enjoy the shoot. We have many priceless photos thanks to Vanessa and she continues to exceed expectations. Highly recommended!


Vanessa Size has successfully captured family, wedding, school and commercial photographs for more than two decades. In 2015, Vanessa gained her Master of Photography status with the AIPP (Aust. Institute of Professional Photography), an honour bestowed to professional photographers who consistently reach award level at the Institute's annual print awards. Even with more than 20 awards to her name, it’s the reaction of delighted clients that continues to inspire her. Some of my favourite moments as a photographer have been capturing the spirit and fun of family life. The cheeky banter, gentle teasing and closeness of families, in whatever form they come. My aim is to capture these moments in an artistic way and my hope is that even after walking past the images on your wall many times, they will make you smile many years into the future. As a Mum, I understand the need to hang on to moments from different ages and stages of childhood. With two teenage boys of my own, I know how quickly the years flash by and the pleasure of looking back (with rose-coloured glasses!).

We had the honour of having Tony Fu capture all of the special moments on our wedding day. His work is incredible and he made the day so much fun. Highly recommended!


Photography is not only a career to me, it is my passion. I remember the first time I picked up a camera, my first photographs were blurry or in odd composition, yet, I was captivated by the artistic potential. That one picture could be translated in so many different ways simply by changing the lighting, the angle, or the colour. That one picture could describe and express better than my words ever could. Photography is the only language that can be communicated worldwide. Photography was a window to my ancestors and a reflection of time elapsed. Photography captured me. So as it was, B captured was born.   

I understand that moments are precious because life is fleeting. I am a proud father of two wonderful children and I watch them grow up too quickly. Photographs document the moments that pass us by or are forgotten and give us a lasting keepsake.

There’s a quote I love, ‘A moment of captured beauty, he who is truly wise will never permit such moments to escape’. A great photographer finds that moment between moments to tell one’s story in the most truthful and beautiful way. It is the small but important details, including the candid, that capture the unique characters, the real emotions and the essence of the day that harvest memories that will transcend a lifetime and generations to come. 

Photography is an art and as an artist, inspiration is everywhere. I am inspired by people, culture and nature. I am inspired by love and laughter and sentiment.

Amanda is so lovely! She not only delivers incredible images, she is so easy to work with - responsive, prompt and understanding. We loved every single photo she sent us, which really shows that she was able to capture who we are as a family. Very happy! I really appreciated her payment options, too!


Families are unique and special. Each family has it’s own personality of sorts. Photographs should celebrate and capture this, not squash it onto a studio sofa with a black background.

My Family Sessions are authentic and natural. No posing or awkward positioning from tallest to shortest. I want to capture your family being themselves. Comfortable and candid. 

You’ll get portraits that represent your family’s nature and candid photographs that capture your relationship and emotion. I want you to look back and remember how it felt to be with your family. To relive the love and bond between you at that moment in time, as well as the cheeky faces and the cuddles. I want to tell the unique and special story of your family. Before they all grow up too fast! 

 I treat all my sessions the same. Because each session, each person deserves the same care, attention to detail and love. Regardless if it’s your wedding or you’ve just given birth, I aim to make you feel comfortable and like i’m your friend. You see, the thing I love most about this job is when I give people images a wave of emotion washes over them. I want to make you stop, smile and relive that moment in time, remembering how you felt. Photographs are so valuable, they mean you can close your eyes, hold that image close to your chest and be transported back to that very day. My sessions are authentic. It's about turning up and being who you really are. Your honest self. And just hanging out together. I treat each and every session as an individual and strive to tell your story. No one else's.Natural portraits portray you in an authentic way. They give a glimpse of who you are by capturing your passion, your kindness, your strength, your beauty. Whatever style of portraits you are after, we can make it unique to represent you. Whether it’s for a website, a CV or your Nanna’s mantle. I’ll guide you in what to do and make you feel comfortable and relaxed. All you need to be is yourself!

With this photographs, you could see your world spin on your little child and you want to share it to the world. You love the comments pouring in, you love the likes and the hearts.  I know you do so contact us today to visit our studios! I encourage you, if you are expecting, give your baby and yourself the gift of this experience and images that will last a long time.
