We are Auckland Family Photography Specialists, it's what we do and we can help you document your family story.

The Family Experience



Our Family Photography Experience is a creative photo shoot designed everyone in the family to enjoy. The typical make up of a family shoot is mum and dad + kids and even sometimes the grandparents. This session easily caters to a maximum of 6 people but we do have options to add on extended family portraits or large group photos.


With two unique options to choose from you can be sure of quality family photos. Our in-studio shoot is quite popular with younger families as wondering children generally do not have a long attention span. The studio option is a fantastic choice if you want wall portraits as the plainness of the background really empathises the subjects which look even more amazing on any wall in any room in your home.


However, don't write off the outdoor shoot option right away! This is a very creative session that offers a lot of variety. Prepare to have some light walking though as we move you through the pre mapped route at your chosen location. Some of our favourite spots to photograph are the Auckland Domain, Cornwall Park (One Tree Hill) or the Auckland Botanical Gardens but if you have an even better ideal by all means let us know and we can check it out ahead of your family photo shoot.


The session usually starts with a nice relaxing cuppa to get you all settled in. From there we will start with some family photos. The shoot will cover a range of options from mum and dad photos, kids together, kids by themselves, mum with kids and so on! Everything we can fit into the two hour time slot we allocate. We like to cover everything for you to give you the most variety when it comes to choosing.


Depending on the option you go with will determine the time of your shoot. If you choose an on location shoot we only hold these at the end of the day, when the sun is at its best! For this reason we only host one outdoor session per day which can get quite popular in the summer months. The studio shoot offers families more certainty when it comes to photo day as the weather will play no part in deciding if their shoot will go ahead or not.


After your family photo shoot you will be invited back to our studio, usually within two weeks to view all the edited photos. This will be the first opportunity you will have to see the photos and be able to make your selections.
