Family Photography

Hi I'm Kris a Port Macquarie family photographer. I photograph candid fun family portraits showcasing the love you have for each other (most of the time). No two families are the same, nor will two of my shoots be the same. These sessions are not to showcase perfect picture book family photos they are to showcase YOUR family, 'just as you are'! Natural, fun documentary style photography, no fairy dust, wear your own clothes & show up as your authentic self. Don't worry I'll still 'iron out the creases' and have you looking your very best. I want you to look back at these photos and remember how your family was at this very point in time (with a touch of Photoshop of course). Think beautiful, fun filled natural family photos!

How my family photography sessions work.


Prior to your family photography session we brainstorm ideas on what your family likes to do & what locations might work for your family. If your family loves the beach - pack your surf boards and your swimmers and we will hit up one of Port Macquarie's stunning beaches, if you love the country - saddle up the horses and we will head to the hills of Wauchope or my all time favourite is for those living on the Mid North Coast shoots in your home (no your place doesn't have to be spotless, its a home filled with love and chaos - I get it).


My shoots always start with a few semi posed family group photos (5 minutes max and yes you can bring a sneaky beverage or two). Then when everyone has warmed up to my (sometimes) funny jokes and we have the safe shots in the bag for Grandmas wall we let the session unfold naturally into whatever it becomes. This is where the magic happens, lots of natural smiles, belly laughs and genuine interactions. The majority of the shoot will be unposed documentary style photography. We work together to come up with ideas and when needed I'll throw random ideas out there and it's up to you if you are crazy enough to take me up on my suggestions. If you are after a formal posed family photography session I'm not your girl but if you are wanting fun, natural (naturally edited that is) family photos you are in the right spot. **WARNING** my shoots usually go wayward with lots of laughs along the way!
