Why use CandidTown as your family photographer

As a parent you probably love taking pictures of your children, and we encourage this! That is why we offer photography workshops. But it’s also important to step out from behind the camera and make those memories with your children, which a professional family photographer can capture in a beautiful and unique way. Photos of your children are wonderful, but it’s pictures of the whole family together that you will probably treasure the most.

Candid Town Family Photography stands out from the rest because of the skills, knowledge and passion that Jay and Yvonne, Sydney Family Photographers bring to every shoot. The two have extensive knowledge about every element of photography, including camera settings, lighting and composition.

How we work

Rather than taking on individual clients, Jay and Yvonne always work together in order to create the best possible photographs for every family they work with. In working as a team, they can accomplish much more than a single photographer could.

They are able to employ advanced lighting techniques – while one of them is taking pictures, the other directs the light via external flashers and reflectors to get the best possible outcome for every picture.

They take great pride in their work and constantly strive to deliver the highest quality photographs to every client. To accomplish this, Candid Town’s Family Photography Sydney only works with the latest professional grade cameras and the best lenses and lights. They would never risk sacrificing quality by relying on inferior camera equipment. They know they are in the business of capturing memories for a lifetime, and they do not take that responsibility lightly.

Baby and Children Photography Sydney

We know all too well how quickly children grow. As a parent, you want to freeze every moment in time so you can continue to enjoy that beautiful stage of your child’s life.

Although Jay and Yvonne can’t freeze time, they are able to help you preserve those memories forever. Candid Town Family Photography – Sydney specializes in Baby and Children photography. That time in your child’s life seems to go by in the blink of an eye, but with the help of Jay and Yvonne’s expertise, you can have beautiful portraits of your baby that you will always cherish.

We know you will want to capture every stage of this magical time in your child’s life. The best time for baby or children photography is around three months because this is the time when your baby will start using facial expressions and will be able to lift their head. Candid Town Photography would love to help capture some of your baby’s first smiles. Jay and Yvonne are passionate children’s photographers in Sydney. They know that baby photoshoots cannot be treated the same as the ones for adults. They have learned from their extensive experience the best techniques and lighting to use to create a breathtaking portrait that you will hold dear for years to come.

Lifestyle Family Photography

At Candid Town Photography, we love to capture the most authentic and beautiful images of families through lifestyle family photography. This photoshoot option entails Jay and Yvonne capturing memories in real time as your family enjoys themselves doing the things that they love.

This particular style of photography session usually lasts from 2-4 hours and can involve multiple locations. For example, you could invite us to your home where we spend some time unobtrusively capturing your normal daily activities. Maybe baking your favorite cake in the kitchen, reading your favorite book, then we could dash to a nearby park and capture you playing outside; soccer, cricket, or just having a picnic.

From this shoot, we will produce 80-100 natural and artistically retouched images, from which you can choose your favorites to make into prints. The best way to preserve these lifestyle family photography sessions is an album. We design these albums ourselves as a story book. A day in a life of a beautiful family, if you will. These albums will contain all of the best images from the day.

A session fee for Lifestyle Family photography is $250. This is due to a much longer shooting time, multiple locations and a larger number of photos delivered.

Is Lifestyle photography the same as candid photography?
It’s similar but not quite the same. With candid photography, many children tend to turn their backs to the camera. Oftentimes children can get shy when there’s a stranger following them around with a big camera. Our technique is a little different. We work to gain trust with the children so that they welcome us into their world and happily share their experiences. That is a big part of why these sessions tend to last a little longer than typical ones.

Posed Family Photography
In our lifestyle family photography sessions we candidly capture unscripted and undirected moments in the life of a family. In our experience, however, that iconic image of everyone in the family facing the camera in a posed position while smiling happily, is still very popular, especially among older people. This is the image that our grandparents often prefer.

Even during our Lifestyle family photography session we make sure we capture a number of those classical family pictures, to make sure we satisfy everyone’s taste. Whatever you have in mind, we are here to help you capture the perfect image with our high quality equipment, skilled photographers and professional environment.
