Family Photography in Circular Quay
With the backdrop of Sydney Opera house and the harbour bridge, this area is famous for family photography in Sydney. It can be busy but if you choose your time of day wisely it can be amazing for your kids photos and family photography.
Balmoral Beach Family Photography
A stunning beach and Sydney harbourside setting is one of our most loved settings.Kids love to play and dance in the iconic Balmoral Rotunda. It has such a variety of backgrounds from the old Bathers Pavilion to the bridge, island, park and sandy shores.

The Sydney Royal Botanic Garden has many beautiful areas available for professional family photography. Choose between lush green lawns with spectacular Sydney harbour views and specialty gardens. Some of our favourite spots are the Bridge View Lawn, MrsMacquaries Point & Chair, the Pioneer Garden and the HBCS Oriental Garden. Kids love running through the big areas it has to offer.
Family Portraits Palm Beach
Relaxed and low key is the best way to describe this Sydney beach. If you love the more secluded areas and want to be left alone on your professional photography shoot, this beach is a great choice for you.

Our studio’s backyard and one we love so much! We head down the sandstone steps and onto the sand for relaxed and casual beach style family photography. It offers a beautiful jetty, netted swimming area, greenery and sandstone rocks.

We love that you can walk out on to the harbour and look back over all of the city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge. If you are wanting iconic Sydney family photos this is one place you should check out.
Centennial Park Professional Kids Photography
Close to the the Sydney CBD, the Centennial Parklands offer a wide-ranging variety of outdoor settings for your professional Sydney photography. What we love is the variety of backdrops including formal gardens, wooded groves, open lawns and natural water features. Kids love to run and jump in the wide open spaces and play hide and seek in the trees.
Family Photography on Cockatoo Island
This is a great location if you love industrial textures and want something a little more unique for your professional family photography in Sydney. You will need to catch a boat out to the island, which also makes for great Sydney harbour family photos.
Family Photography at Macquarie House Vaucluse
Beautifully white against a blue sky, this location is the perfect backdrop for our Sydney family photography. The grounds of Macquarie Lightstation, located on the shoreline of Sydney Harbour are a part of the city’s 100km Great Coastal Walk.
Family Photography Paddington
Paddington Reservoir Gardens has been completely transformed. We love the brick, timber and iron fixtures with contemporary and sustainable elements. The roof-top features a stunning sunken garden, and vibrant graffiti art has been preserved in the eastern chamber. We like to be there until the sunsets, as the lighting detail transforms the space once again. It is a lovely blend of old and new and is the perfect place for your family photos or kids photography in Sydney, especially if you like rustic textures.We love to take our families for a wander through the immaculate gardens and wide boardwalks.

Featuring a sheltered bay with views to the city and a very relaxed harbour side vibe. We love photographing families with the backdrop of the boats and water. We love Robertson Park as it overlooks the harbour, among the old aged Moreton Bay Figs Trees.
Sydney Family Photographyat Nielsen Park
Nielsen Park is one of Sydney’s iconic and unspoiled heritage parks and one of the city’s hidden secrets. Nielsen Park and its various event spaces offer a great blank canvas for creating beautiful family portraits. We love the white buildings, large steps that lead onto the sand and the gorgeous textured sandstone rocks for our backdrops.
