MEET THE FOUNDER GRAHAM MONRO
"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!”

I booked a family photoshoot with gm photographics as a present for my mums birthday. My parents were a bit hesitant at first as we had never had professional family photos before...
I had the best experience with Graham & the team at GM Photographics. My dog, Romeo had his pet portraits done and even being a timid dog with a fear of men, he did so well at this shoot...
This turned out to be an excellent experience for the family. Despite the kids being very hesitant (and me insisting on a family photo before they got too old)...

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.

Extended family cost $250 weekday or weekend.
The shoot fee includes

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.
