Hello and Welcome

I specialise in family and children’s portraiture as well as newborn and maternity photography.  My portraits are real moments with the people that you care about.  There are no contrived images or awkward family photos here.  I create beautiful candid portraiture and original artwork that your family will treasure for many years to come.

My clients often return to me again and again and I’m honoured to watch their families grow and change over the years.   Take a look at my portfolio and read some of my clients’ testimonials to find out more.

Timeless, Creative & Original Portraiture

I know that finding the best photographer 

to take your family portraits is an

important and sometimes daunting task. 

Here’s how I can help you …

Experience & Quality

I have 15 years experience as a portrait photographer, a Diploma in Arts – Photography and am an accredited member of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers).


I offer a mobile service, so it doesn’t matter where you are based in Brisbane, the Gold Coast or Northern NSW, I’ll travel to you for your portrait session.  I hold online viewings so there is no need to book a studio appointment and babysitter to view your portraits. When your order is ready, it is packaged and delivered to you free of charge.

Fun & Easy

I will guide you through the process from beginning to end and make it as easy as possible for you.  I’m all about creating a fun environment so your family can relax, be yourselves and enjoy your portrait session.

Upfront Prices

I am upfront about all of my photography fees and will disclose all costs to you before your decide to book with me.  Sessions start at $150 and portrait collections are from $395.  I have a variety of products from digital images to hand crafted fine art prints, albums and canvases and offer payment plans.  Learn more about AfterPay here. Please contact me for my full price list.

Location Flexibility

Choose from a lifestyle portrait session photographed in the comfort of your home or one of South East Queensland’s many beautiful natural settings to reflect your family’s true personality.

Zero Pressure

Online viewing sessions mean that you can view your portraits in your own time, at your convenience … without a pushy salesperson breathing down your neck. (We’ve all been there!) And, if you ever need help with decision-making and techie stuff then you can contact me at any time. I’m always happy to help and answer your questions.

Here’s what my clients say…

Meet Leisa …

I’m Leisa, and I’m a Brisbane and Gold Coast based photographer known for my lifestyle family portraiture.  I help families who want beautiful family portraits by capturing real moments with style and creativity.

As a mum and with more than 15 years of portrait photography experience, I’m an expert at working kids of all ages … especially less than co-operative toddlers!  My photography is inspired by nature, genuine human connections and all things creative. South-East Queensland with its beautiful outdoor environments is the perfect place for me to combine these passions.

When I’m not photographing families, I’m helping entrepreneurs bring their business vision to life and creating photographic art. In my spare time, I love travelling, spending time in the great outdoors and going on adventures with my daughter and our two Labradors.
