"I'm doing what I love - photographing people and their special moments. All of my life and work travels have helped me build strong connections with people. To me photography is not my job; it's my craft, a lifestyle that I choose, I love and I need"For over 40 years, Canon Master Photographer Graham Monro has been honing his craft as a professional photographer. Whether he’s on the beach, climbing a ladder, crawling along the ground for a better angle, or in a client’s home, Graham is always learning and says that every job makes him a better photographer.“The most rewarding part of our work is when our clients display our images on their walls in their home - The photos that we create become family heirlooms!”

When he’s not taking photos, Graham is a husband to Simona and Dad to twin girls, Sofia & Isabella. It’s rare that you find him without his camera even when he’s out and about mountain biking and kayaking.


If you are looking for style, elegance and classic professional photography, then we are here waiting to capture your special moments. Your milestone memories will be beautifully captured in timeless images that will grace your home for generations to come.

"We just love our wall of family pictures it’s so special and anyone who graces our hallway always gives it a special mention. John and I cherish our wedding and family pics taken and edited by gm photographics. We both walk past “the wall” numerous times a day and never tire of any pic. They are moments and they always make us smile, we feel grateful to have created such a special family. We’re so fortunate we’ll have these special memories to keep with us forever, and hopefully share with our extended family one day."


"What a fantastic and professional team. We used GM Photographics for our wedding and they were so wonderful. The photos exceeded our expectations but the actual experience on the day will be one we will never forget. They were so lovely and just fitted right in with us all like they were part of our bridal party but so professional at the same time. We loved them so much we came back a few years later and had family photos taken. Would highly recommend Graham and his team."





We want to make your family’s photography experience to be hassle free yet memorable, so we have created a step-by-step guide to plan your perfect portrait session. Simply follow each step below to get started.

1. Select a location

2. Pick your style

3. Follow our getting ready tips

4. Personalise your photography session

5. Submit your photography session plan

We will speak to you about these steps at your personal consultation over the phone or in our showroom, We will guide you every step of the way.

We shoot at all three! Think about what you want your shoot to look like but also where you are most comfortable.

We specialise shooting on location, we love to photograph your family at one of your favourite locations - such as: Balmoral Beach, Clifton Gardens (dog friendly), Chinamans Beach, Bradley’s Head, Freshwater Beach, Nielsen Park + Centennial Park plus many more.

However, if you would like us to come to your home we love to capture you in your natural environment where you feel relaxed and at ease.

We also have a small studio where we can photograph newborns and children.

Most people are, but rest assured we are here to guide you every step of the way.

We meet all kinds of personalities over the years. Graham and our assistants have lots of tricks up their sleeve to help shy kids relax and come out of their shell. Trust us, you are in good hands!

If your child is especially shy, perhaps bring them by the studio before your shoot to meet us, so we aren't meeting for the first time at the shoot.

After your photo shoot we work hard downloading and editing your images. A week after your photo shoot they will be ready to view at our Mosman showroom.

Your cinema viewing session lasts between 1-2hours with our design consultant.

This is your one opportunity to view, design and purchase the images that you love. We suggest leaving the children with your babysitter so you can make decisions and enjoy the process.

Graham Monro has been the main photographer at gm photographics for over 26 years. However, we have many other talented photographers that also shoot for us.

Simona and Joy assist Graham on shoots, but they also love taking photos themselves and are always eager to get behind the camera.

Please allow up to 1 hour for all family shoots.

Allow 1.5 hours if it is an extended family shoot.

If we are photographing your newborn photos, please allow 2-3 hours so there is time for feeding and settling between takes.

If you are bringing pets allow an extra 15-30 minutes.

Photo shoots cost $150 on a weekday and $250 on a weekend

Extended family cost $250 weekday or weekend.

The shoot fee includes

  • a 40 minute consultation at our Mosman showroom
  • 1 hour family location shoot with photographer and director
  • plus a cinema viewing session with our design consultant.

The number one rule is to be yourselves and be comfortable with what you choose to wear. The only advice we would give you is to make sure that you don’t clash with other family members. For example wearing patterned clothes is ok, but if all the family are wearing patterns you can imagine how busy the photos will look, so please keep it simple, but don’t be afraid of patterns and colours if that’s who you are!

Pastel colours work well and we love when you accessorise with hats, scarves and jewellery.

Every family is individual, so please bring along anything that might be meaningful to you and your children right now. For example, musical instruments, scooter, bike, toys, scarfs, beanie, hat, swimmers, and bucket and spade for the beach etc

Also don’t forget to bring a change of clothes and a towel, incase the kids go in the water and get wet.

As you know, shooting outside can be unpredictable, we will be in contact with you before the shoot date to confirm and do a weather check.

If it rains on the day of the shoot we can reschedule.



If you’d like to talk about corporate and commercial photography, please get in touch.

You can contact us through call or email. We're excited to hear from you.
