Family Photography connects us to our past, Reminding us of people, places, feelings, and stories.

The photoshoots are full of laughter, games and fun to make sure we are capturing real smiles that reflect the joy of family life. I begin the photoshoot by connecting to your children so that they feel relaxed, safe and comfortable while I take their family photos.

With over a decade of experience photographing families, kids and even your fur babies, I specialise in capturing moments in a creative but authentic way. I work with natural golden light to capture photographs that you will enjoy for a lifetime.

Family photoshoots are held at a park, a beach in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney or your favourite place outdoors. I have gorgeous locations from harbour beaches where the sun sets over the water to fields of long grass and pine forests to choose from.

You will have access to my ladies client wardrobe for your photoshoot and I will send you a detailed what to wear guide for the rest of the family so that you can coordinate outfits to help bring out your personalities and feel beautiful.

After the photoshoot I will guide you through the design process of creating heirloom artwork to hang in your home for generations to come.

Sydney family photos start at $200 for a midweek session. To find out more, get in touch here.

Capturing Memories that Last A Lifetime

A family photoshoot is the most special and lasting way to preserve the memories of the people we love most in the world. The photographs will serve as a way to transport us back to a time when life was simpler, and to remind us of the love and deep connections we share with our children and spouses.

A Timeless Reminder

A family photo shoot provides us with tangible memories that we can hold onto forever. In a world where everything changes and moves so quickly, where there are so many distractions from technology, these family portraits will help us to remember those lost moments. The physical photographs, when printed into beautiful photographic art, will give us a medium in which to constantly revisit these moments long after they are over. Your photographs are essentially a time capsule, capturing moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.

We all know how busy life can be especially with kids in the picture. As mums we rush from thing to thing and very often do not have time to enjoy or absorb the simple moments. By making the effort to schedule a photoshoot with a family photographer Sydney, we are reminding outselves that it is important to slow down and embrace these moments. We are showing our loved ones they are our priority and strengthening our bond with them through lasting memories. Ultimately, family photoshoots are a way to celebrate the love and connection that we share with our family members, and to create a sense of unity that will sustain us through all the highs and lows life throws at us.

Strengthening Family Bonds Through Family Photography

Family photos also help to strengthen the bond between the whole family. By taking the time to come together for a family photoshoot, we will be showing our children and loved ones that they are important to us. We are prioritising our relationship with them over everything else and taking the time out to capture it. More so, we are making time during a natural family beach photoshoot to deepen the connection we share with them. During the family photography session you will laugh, play, create new fun memories and capture candid moments that reflect the genuine love and connection within your family, which will only further strengthen the bond and love that you share.

Bringing Memories to Life: The Importance of Printing Your Family Photos

When you print your family photos and display them in your home you are further cementing this idea that says "you are important, you are loved". These treasured memories will serve as a daily nostalgic reminder of the love and memories you hold most dear and when friends and family visit, they will be conversation starters to retell the stories and memories aloud. Additionally, displaying your family photoshoot in printed artwork on your walls will bring your home and space alive and infuse a room with love, warmth and personal meaning.

Creating a Legacy for Future Generations


Family photoshoots are also important for future generations. The family photos captured today will become a legacy that is passed down to our children, grandchildren and beyond. They will allow future generations to see where they come from and to feel a sense of belonging and deep connection to their heritage and family history.

Frequently Asked Questions

Booking & Scheduling

How do I book a family photoshoot?

Please get in touch with me via email or click here to fill in the form to find out more. Please let me know any date preferences for your photoshoot. I will email you with all the information for your photoshoot and booking links.

How far in advance should I book my session?

I only photograph families outdoors over golden hour. Most families opt for a sunset session (others prefer sunrise) which means I can only photograph one family each day. Weekend sunset sessions book out 2-3 months in advance. Weekday sunset sessions usually book up 1 month ahead. I recommend getting in touch to book at least 2 months before you would like your photoshoot.

What is your cancellation policy?

Once you have paid the session fee, it will lock in your photoshoot date and time and it is non refundable. If you are unwell or if it rains on the day of the photoshoot, we will postpone it to the next available date that works for us both.

Do you offer weekend or weekday appointments?

I offer both! I typically photograph family photoshoots over sunrise or sunset.

Location and Style

Do you offer in-home or outdoor photoshoots?

Once you have booked we will discuss where you would like to do the photos. You can choose to do a cosy at home photoshoot capturing your family relaxing in your happiest place, or an outdoor photoshoot at your favourite park or beach. I am here to help you select what is best for your family.

What are your favourite locations for family photoshoots in Sydney?

These are my best kept secrets! Once you book, I will send you through my location guide which showcases photos of all my favourite outdoor locations across Sydney.

Can we choose a specific location for our photoshoot?

Yes, I love exploring new locations. This is something we will discuss at the time of booking.

What is your photography style?

My style of photography is natural and unposed. You will rarely be posed in a stiff position looking into the camera. Family photoshoots are so much fun! We play games so that you and your children are constantly moving around and having a blast during your session. This allows me to capture authentic photographs that are not staged and posed.

Do you pose families during the photoshoot?

NO! I may tell you where to stand, but mostly I will be playing little games with you. E.g. I may get your children to run around you in a circle, tickle your kids, tip them upside down or throw them in the air. With many years of experience, I have an endless list in my head of natural ways to capture families.

What to Wear and Bring

What should my family wear for the photoshoot?

The best part about booking a photoshoot with me is that I have over 25 gorgeous dresses I have personally collected for you to choose to wear in your photos. When you book I will send you my what to wear guide. It is a comprehensive visual guide to help you dress and style the whole family. I am also available to help guide you when dressing the rest of the family.

Should we bring any props or outfits for the photoshoot?

Most photoshoots do not require you to bring any special props as they are very natural. However, if you or your children have any special hobbies you would like to include in the photoshoot please let me know, I would love to include these!. E.g. surfing, skateboarding, bike riding etc.

What should we do if the weather is bad on the day of our photoshoot?

If we are unlucky with the weather, we will postpone your photoshoot to the next available date that we can both make.

After the Photoshoot

How long will it take to receive my photos?

You will receive a link to a secure online gallery with 80+ edited photographs for you to choose from within 2-3 weeks of your photoshoot. You can then view and select the photos and package you would like to order.

How many photos will I receive from the session?

You will be able to view over 80 of the best photos from the session. You can then select how many you would like to order. Packages range from 8 photos to all the photos in the gallery.

Do you offer prints or albums?

Yes! After purchasing the digital images, I can set up a time with you to design custom wall art or an album for your home. I have personally selected some of the best suppliers in Australia to print and frame your photos. I will help you design a statement piece to hang in your home for generations to come.

Do you edit the photos?

Yes! All photos are professionally edited in my natural photography style you can see on my website.

Dani has photographed our growing family on 2 occasions and the photos were fantastic. The photoshoot was so natural and pleasant and Dani knew how to engage with my children. I would definitely use Dani in the future to capture our family again.

Dani was incredible! We had the most amazing family newborn shoot! Being two weeks post partum I was worried about looking like the sleep deprived crazy person I felt like but Dani worked her magic. The photos were better than I expected and I actually felt really beautiful (not that it’s all about me) when I saw the end result. Wardrobe was provided for me as the mum and for our newborn which was so so helpful. She captured our family in a way I wasn’t even expecting and managed to get our fur baby to look at the camera as well. I found Dani via google search so I was a little nervous but she exceeded all expectations. I will 10000% be using Dani again and I highly recommend you do too 🙂

Dani is the most talented photographer I’ve ever had photos with. She magically captured the most breathtaking shots when I thought the kids weren’t interested . She’s amazing at getting the kids to cooperate for her photos which made it so much more relaxing for me! We came away with so many stunning photos it was hard to choose! Highly recommend.

Cannot recommend Daniella Photography highly enough. She captured the most beautiful photos of our family in the comfort of our home. Dani worked wonders with our newborn who didn’t want to sit still for photos and was so patient in helping us get him settled. The photoshoot felt natural and easy, and the pictures turned out even better than I had hoped. Thank you Dani!

Look no further than photos with dani. From the minute we connected and started speaking about wanting to do a newborn photoshoot, she was professional and replied instantly. She is an absolute pleasure to deal with, with an incredible eye. She took the most beautiful photos and was so gentle with my baby and 2.5 year old. I would highly recommend Dani and use her again in the future!
