Family Sessions

When my son was born, I started to capture all those amazing childhood moments and preserve our special memories together. I realised that having photographs of these special moments is something that I would treasure forever, as children grow up so fast. our son started school last year and the last 6 years have disappeared in the blink of an eye.

It's often harder as parents to young kids to make sure you are also in the photos, as you are often juggling so much as parents. This is where I come in to photograph your families story. I adore all the moments in between, the raw un-staged beauty of family life, capturing a cheeky smile, a kiss, a glance, laughter, love & all the chaos in between.

Your photo session will be relaxed and feel easy. Together, we will laugh, play and let the kids have so much fun to create a beautiful collection of relaxed images of your beautiful family. I will offer lots of guidance so you'll never be left wondering what to do next. No awkward moments. I promise.

Before the session, I will provide a mood board of outfit inspiration, advise on what to bring and we will work together to find the perfect location and the best time of day to suit your families schedules.

The best time of day for outdoor family sessions is either early morning or later afternoon in the 'golden hour'. This is the 1 to 2 hours before sunset and after sunrise each day. The light at this time is beautifully soft and flattering and produces the most gorgeous photos. Most of the outdoor photos you see on my website and instagram are taken in the Golden hour.

The other option for family sessions is a session at your home, which can be equally as magic as I capture you all in your own family home.

Are you ready to tell your story? If you have any questions or want to chat just send me a message on my contact page. I also offer keepsake family films if you would like to capture a moving portrait of your family.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind words from my clients


1 / 5

"Love using Tasha from Spindrift as our family photographer. Tasha makes us all feel so comfortable and is amazing with kids. We did newborn photos with our girl and booked in again a year later when she turned 1. Tasha knows the best time with lightning and takes the most incredible and natural family photos. Our daughter was being a little camera shy and Tasha was able to play with her to make her laugh. We will continue using her every year for our family photos!"

What happens if it rains?

If it rains or is bad weather, we will of course, postpone, but I like to wait if possible to the day of the session before making the final call, as often the weather will turn out amazing, and its often after rain or storms that we get the most magical pink skies, so its always worth waiting until the day to make the final call. I want your photos to be beautiful just as you do, so we will never go ahead if the weather is not suitable.

Is travel included

Travel within the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore of Sydney is included. Travel outside of these areas is charged at $50 per hour.

When will I receive my image gallery?

I know that getting your images back is so exciting, so I aim to have a little preview to you within week your fully edited gallery of images within 3 weeks. I share images from each session on my social media sites, so let me know if you would prefer I didn't do this, just let me know

What should I wear to my session?

This is entirely up to you, to get the best out of your session and images, I recommend that you choose a colour palette that suits your style, such as whites or neutrals or blues etc. I can provide more detailed guidance on this, depending on your session type if you would like.

What happens if we are unwell?

If you or I are unwell, we will of course postpone the session. I am a mum, so I totally understand that kids get sick and we will of course postpone in this case. I just ask that you give me as much notice as possible if your kids are unwell, so I can fill your space with someone from my waiting list.

Family Galleries

Below is a little taster of some of my recent sessions. As you can see I LOVE photographing families outside. I always find it brings out the best in everyone, with the breeze on their faces and beautiful Australian sunshine. The best time for a beach session is either first thing in the morning or later afternoon as the sun begins to soften. But if the only time of day that suits your family is midday then don't worry there is a location for every time of day and I will help you choose somewhere that is perfect.
