You. Are. Amazing. I don’t know how you do it, but you are constantly capturing our perfection and it just gets better!!!!

Thank you thank you thank you for your amazing work. You capture not only our smiles, but our souls
— Sabrina + Kev Cox
Danielle is an amazing photographer. We have been fortunate enough that she has captured so beautifully the journey of us starting and completing our family.

We love her work and her personality that much that she has done three photo shoots with us so far (and we expect to do more with other family milestones in the future). Our first photo shoot was when my son turned one and I was pregnant with my twin boys. The second was when my twins were born, and the third when they turned one.

I highly recommend Danielle to capture your magic moments and memories, she makes everyone feel so comfortable and it becomes more than a photo shoot, the experience becomes a memory. Thanks Danielle for our keepsakes.
— Kylie + Jason

Naturally beautiful, candid images to tell the story of your family.

When in years to come you look back on your images, I don't want you to simply see a picture. I want you to relive the feelings, emotions and sensations that you felt at this time when their hands were so small, their little feet so delicious, their expressions so honest.

My lifestyle photography sessions are perfect for families and a celebration of the many beautiful moments that happen each and everyday, that only when they are no more, do we really appreciate how special they were. Simple things like lazy Sunday mornings in bed, or the stroll to the dog park, picnics, parties and road trips to the beach for ice-cream.

And then there are the big moments. The calm before the storm when you are pregnant, anticipating how your life will change inexplicably - wonderfully - in just a few weeks' time. Or baby's arrival home and those precious, tiring days afterwards, when you are all falling in love with one another. 

This isn't about just taking photos. It's about capturing your story, the interactions and connections with the people you love, in the places you love.

How it all works

1. Book your session

Once you've decided that you'd love to go ahead, contact me and let me know your preferred date/s. At this time, I'd also love to hear a bit about your story - why you're looking to have a session and what in particular, you'd love me to capture. 

Once you’ve booked and we’ve settled on a date, I’ll send a link so you can complete the booking process online. This involves completing a questionnaire, signing the session agreement and paying your session fee.

3. Get ready for your session

Once your booking is all locked in, I'll send across information on how to prepare for your session, including tips on what to bring, what to wear and what to expect.  

In the lead up to your session, I'll be keeping an eye on the weather forecast. If mother nature works against us, we’ll simply reschedule the session to another day at no extra charge.

5. Keep an eye out for your sneak peeks

After your session I carefully select and edit the very best images.  As I work through your images from the session, I'll spot a few early favourites which will be posted as “sneak peeks” on Facebook and Instagram within 48 hours.

Make sure you like and follow my Lightsmith Images Facebook and Lightsmith Images Instagram pages so you don't miss these!

7. Fall in love with your products!

Depending on what you order, your gorgeous goodies  will be ready for collection from my Holland Park consult room around 2-6 weeks after your order is place.

This is a very exciting part of the process, one that I absolutely love! After you have collected your beautiful products, I'll touch base a few days later to make sure you are 100% in love with your order.

Also keep an eye out for your story that will be featured on my blog! This is a great way to share your story with family and friends. 

Need to know anything else? Simply complete a contact form and I'll be in touch.

2. Select the perfect location

I have a range of great spots for photography sessions, all within an hours' drive of Brisbane CBD. All you need to do, is decide on is whether you'd love a session in your home or outdoors at a beach, park, forest or urban setting. 

Choosing the perfect location plays a huge part in the final look of your photos so we will work together to find the best possible location suited to your family and your story.

4. Your Session!

The big day has arrived!

I'm all about capturing people as authentically possible which is great news for you - you simply need to turn up and be yourself. We'll have a laugh during the session and I promise, there will be time to just chill out and relax. The more relaxed you feel, the better the photos.

All orders must be placed within 5 days of your Image Reveal, Design and Ordering Session and payment plans are available on all orders.
