Sunshine Coast family photography

Capture everyday beauty

I help busy families capture the everyday beauty of their lives, and preserve those memories forever.

Families are stronger when we celebrate the history of who we are and where we have come from. When our children are surrounded by imagery of family past and present, we create happy kids.

That’s no exaggeration. Studies show that the sense of belonging that kids get seeing photos of themselves, their brothers and sisters, their parents, their grandparents and extended family, actually protects and strengthens their mental health. Kids who know where they belong are happier, more relaxed, have fewer behaviour problems, are more motivated and are more successful learners.

That’s what family photography does. Seeing photographs on your walls, having albums out to sit together and look at: you are literally building connections in your child’s brain that will make them a happier person.

Connect to your family

Photographs strengthen and preserve memories of precious people and defining moments. They tell your family’s story. They connect your past to your future.

My clients value photographs that are talked about and laughed about. Photographs that are seen and held. Photographs that are treasured, because in every one of the artworks we create together there is a story, an emotion, a memory.

For my clients, photographs are daily reminders of the love they have for each other, and of the people who love them. They are precious, and deserve to be made tangible and permanent, not swiped aside and lost in a fleeting digital world.

Photo Pricing

Every booking with me includes your professional photography session on location for you and your family. After your shoot, your photographs will be digitally developed and hand-edited to perfection, and delivered in your own private, secure online gallery.

Photoshoots start at $293 for a photoshoot anywhere on the Sunshine Coast.

I offer a discount if you come to me in Cooran (postcode 4569) for a weekday photoshoot.


Jemma has captured so many shots that we will treasure forever. It is very easy to feel relaxed around her and I think this is so important and has made our sessions appear so natural. She is fantastic with kids and is great at capturing their gorgeous little moments.

Jemma is a natural both behind the camera and with the little ones. She captures the essence of the moment in such a special way.  So glad we have these keepsakes of our little one’s toddler moments.
