The Art……… Sydney Family Photographer

You may have read before that I am passionate about prints.

It’s all very well and good to have beautiful images of yourself and family on a disc but what happens when it’s time to print?

Where do you go to get it printed, how do you present these images?  What size should you get?  Will they last the test of time?

When I changed the name of my business to Art of Joy Photography, ‘Art’ had two meanings.

1. How we go about creating our own Joy (that in itself is an Art)

2. The Art itself.  The image printed and presented.

So there was no doubt in my mind that we had to offer Albums or something similar.

Below is an example of a Queensberry Press Book that we offer and designed.  Similar to an album but more like a book

(If you haven’t heard of Queensberry, click on the link.  They are the creme de la creme of wedding albums!)

It tells a little story of a time this family spent together in a cane field in Queensland and the love they share with one another.

More images of the inside and this sweet family to come soon!  And more of our products that we offer too!

If you think you would like an album similar to this, contact me using the form below.


Two boys and a boat ………..

FINALLY!!  I am finally able to get around to posting this shoot.  The past few weeks/month has been absolutely hectic, but i’m pleased to say i’m getting things under control.

Kids are back at school so I’m able to work in peace and quiet!!  Thank goodness (big sigh!).

What fun we had this afternoon with this lovely family!  The boys were shy to begin with but it didn’t take long for them to open up and just be boys!

A few people have asked about the boat.  When you book a shoot with Art of Joy Photography we try to personalise the shoot as much as possible to our clients.It can be a lifestyle shoot (simply you at home with your family), it could be a dream shoot with crazy or whimsical elements or you may want a nice location and something simple.

This family told me a bit about themselves and one thing they do a lot of is sailing,  so I asked if they had a small boat and you can imagine my excitement when they said yes and they would bring it all the way from the northern beaches to our location!!!

Without further ado here are my personal favourites from the shoot!

Gorgeous mum to be (Maternity Photographer Sydney)

What a great way to launch our new Milestones Package (details on the pricing page of our website) with a gorgeous Maternity shoot!  It was great to finally meet with Leanne  as we had been emailing back and forth for quite a few months (organised mum to be)!

She had me in stitches as we had a few small challenges to overcome that day, she is quite the comedian!

This shoot was about a month back and since then Leanne has given birth to a very healthy boy weighing in at 4.11kg’s (yes I got those numbers right)!!

Congratulations Leanne and Steve, welcome to the wonderful world of parenting!

P.S. Doesn’t she look fantastic!



Sweet baby……….

It had been awhile since I had last done a newborn shoot and I was hanging out for some newborn cuteness!

She was an absolute darling and it was so nice to meet her doting parents (as if you wouldn’t dote with a face like that)!

I enjoyed it so much that I am bringing out a new package which includes Maternity, Newborn, 6 months and 1 year.
