Every family has a story. Essential Photography captures yours.

Photography is all about the moments, whatever they may be. A family full of energy and love, a toddler taking tentative first steps, a curled up sleepy newborn, and a magical pregnancy feeling the bumps and kicks.

With a trained eye and personal approach, Essential Photography captures those moments and turns them into professional artwork you will cherish.

Choose a session in my beautiful studio in Ringwood, Melbourne or in the great outdoors. Wherever we are, you’ll love the result: beautiful spontaneous images of your loved ones that are simply brimming with life.
