How long before we can see our images?

Within 2 weeks from the photo shoot, we will email you a link to your private online gallery. You will be able to choose individual images or purchase the entire collection.

Do you retouch the images?

We edit every image that we deliver. They will be color corrected and have major blemishes removed. If you order a framed print or canvas, the image will be retouched in Photoshop and enlarged to the desired size before we send it to our printers. If we think that an image may work well in black and white we upload that version as well. Please feel free to ask us about the amount of retouching you would like to have for your images.

Can I choose the location of the shoot?

If you have a favorite spot, please let us know and we’ll assess its suitability for photography. Some places are better than others. If you don’t have a favorite spot, leave it up to us. We’ll find a spot that is convenient and great for family photography.

What should I wear?

Your family photo-shoot is a record of who you are as a family at this time. What we recommend is to avoid wearing clothes with strong patterns or visible logos. Also, pay a little attention to coordinate the colors. Earthy colors work better than strong, bright reds, greens, etc. For children, bring anything that makes them look cute in your eyes. Accessories like hats, jewellery, favorite costumes work quite well too. Bring whatever suits your personality and something that is comfortable and lets you enjoy yourself during the shoot.

Can we have a makeup artist?

Yes. Please let us know if you need a makeup artist for the shoot. We can organise one at an additional cost.

What if it rains?

If the weather fails us, we can reschedule the shoot for another day.

Can we change the appointment date?

If you need to change your appointment for any reason, please let us know as soon as you can, so we can re-organise our schedule as well. We’ll find you a spot at another day.

Family Photography Sydney

At Candid Town Photography, our number one priority is to help you capture memories that you will treasure for a lifetime. We will arrange for a photoshoot at your home, a local park, or just about any other place of your choosing. We know that the best pictures result from relaxed and fun environments, so leave all the stress of family picture day behind. Whether you are interested in a children’s photographer or would like a portrait of the whole family, you will receive personal attention from Jay and Yvonne. They will take every measure to ensure that your photoshoot is stress-free and enjoyable while creating beautiful pictures that will last a lifetime.

The Process

Our photography session will take anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours. We will then carefully select the best photographs from the photoshoot, and we will professionally retouch them using Photoshop and Lightroom. In this way we can enhance the colors, remove any unwanted background images, perfectly adjust the contrast, and enhance the natural beauty to create stunning pictures for your collection. About 3 weeks from your family shoot the completed photographs will then be uploaded to an online gallery.

Online Gallery

We know that you will be so excited to share this gallery with your family and friends! Also, you will have the convenient option of downloading your favorite digital images directly from the gallery. You can also use the online gallery to select which images you would like to have made into either canvas or framed prints. Simply let us know which ones you choose and we will order these products for you. Also, if you would like to order an album, we will design it for you and you will be able to proof it through a similar gallery.

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.

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.

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.
