Sydney Family Photographer

Photos that remind them what it feels like to be loved by you!

You don’t want your photo session to feel stuffy and posed, you want it to feel like you. Free to have fun and do the things you know will make your kids smile. To wrap your arms around them and love on them like nobody’s watching. To giggle and laugh together and make memories that will fill you with the same joy you felt the day you made them.


the experience

01. book your session

Get in touch to check availability and choose a date that works for you, then pay the session fee and sign your contract to secure your booking.

As much or as little help with planning your session as you need. I’ll send you my planning guides with lots of styling advice and tips on how to prepare for your best photoshoot ever.

03. Choose your package

Payment of your chosen package is due on or before your session day, but don’t stress – if you love them all you can always upgrade after you receive your gallery!

04. your best photoshoot ever!

This is going to be fun! I encourage you to move and play with your kids so we get lots of natural smiles and laughter. I’ll guide you throughout the session, and if you’re doing it right I’ll just let things unfold naturally!

Your beautiful gallery will be delivered right to your inbox within 2 weeks of your session, and your prints and products will arrive a few weeks later.

what other SMP Mums are saying...

“We are very grateful for Stacey and the moments she has captured for our family over the years”

“Stacey has photographed two maternity/family shoots, my 3 babies as newborns, and one Christmas session for our family. She always goes above and beyond, especially when you have a baby who won’t sleep, or crazy toddlers running around – she always gets the most memorable and special shots.”

- Kayla H.

Most asked questions

As soon as you’re ready! I only offer a limited number of sessions per month so I can make sure each of my clients is well taken care of.

I’m located in Spring Farm, NSW and I photograph all over Macarthur and surrounding areas, but if you have a particular location in mind, get in touch – I’m always up for an adventure!

I allow around 60 minutes for family sessions however most little ones start to fade around the 40 minute mark. I’ll try to capture as much magic as we can while the kids are happy.

I’ve got you! I’ll help guide you so you aren’t left feeling awkward, but the main thing is that you relax and be present in the moment. You already know how to be a family together – I’m just here to capture that!

You’ll receive an email with a link and password to your private online gallery around 2 weeks after your session. eeek! 

Your session booking fee is $150 for family sessions and $200 for newborns and is payable on booking to secure your date in my calendar, then you have up until the day of your session to choose and pay for your package.

Sessions take place on Wednesday through Friday and most of my clients take a personal day so they don’t feel rushed getting ready for the session (plus it’s a way better excuse for a day off than a trip to the dentist!)

Weekend sessions are generally reserved for my own family, however I do offer limited weekend dates throughout the year which are released to my email list first.
