Fun, natural, spontaneous...
How long has it been since you had your family photographed?
We all take snaps on our smart phones but rarely print and display them. It is our aim to produce beautiful professional family photos that are a reflection of your lifestyle and your family. Works of art that you will be proud to display on your wall for years to come.
did you know that de lumière is French for "of light"?

Describe de lumière's photography style
We will capture your child's quirks, settle your newborn, chase that light, play with your pets, or sing songs from Frozen and we guarantee that you will come away with a bunch of memories to treasure for a lifetime.
Who will be capturing our portraits?
Our photographers are experienced, professional creatives who genuinely love what they do. You can read more about us here.
Tell me about a newborn session
There is such a small window of time when your baby is this tiny (we recommend that a newborn session is done within the first 14 days), so take the time and make the effort to plan your session with all of your loved ones.
Together we will create gorgeous heirloom portraits of your baby and family.
Allow up to 3 hours for your professional newborn photography session. This will ensure that there is time for feeding, settling, changing backgrounds and outfits all whilst keeping your baby content and the new parents relaxed.
When is the best time to have maternity photos taken?
We recommend that maternity photos are taken at about 36 weeks.
How long does a portrait session take?
Allow one hour for your professional family photography session, an extended family portrait session can take up to one and a half hours.
Do you have suggestions for where we could have our portraits taken?
Some of our favourite Sydney outdoor family photography locations include Watson’s Bay, Nielsen Park, Little Bay, The Rocks and The Royal Botanic Gardens – basically anywhere with gorgeous Australian backdrops!
Some of our favourite Blue Mountains outdoor family portrait locations include Wentworth Falls, Blackheath, Yarramundi Reserve and Lawson.
Do you offer albums, and printed product? What about digital images?
We love our families to have tangible, printed heirlooms to pass down to the next generations. Our most popular collection includes an online gallery with highlights slideshow and printable digital images, we also have albums, prints and framed options for you to choose from. See some of them here.
How long will it take to receive our images?
You will receive your gallery approximately 2 weeks after your session depending on the time of year!
We are a little nervous about being in front of a camera...
Fear not!! Our portrait sessions are fun, filled with games and laughter. We spend time getting to know you and your kids so that we capture the essence of your family.
We don't know what to wear!
Prior to your family photography session, we will chat about clothing options, how to best prepare for your shoot, where we will meet and any ideas or suggestions you may have to make your family photographs unique to you.
We would love to book your services, how do we proceed?
A booking fee is required to hold your date once you have decided to go ahead with our services, with the balance of the collection fee due prior to the portrait session.

Your images should be as unique as you are...
We love our families to have printed, tangible heirlooms for generations to enjoy, so we provide a mixture of artworks to hang on their wall, albums to pour through, along with digital images to share with friends and family.
Our gorgeous wooden memory box is a family favourite.
Many new parents personalise birth announcement cards. We can help you create a beautiful design and print them for you complete with envelopes.
Layflat albums are by far our most popular choice. There are usually so many photos to choose from that our families often have trouble choosing. Our heirloom layflat photography album is handmade using the finest materials made here in Australia.
Our acrylic blocks are also very popular. They are great presents for grandparents and look great anywhere in the home or office.

We have just had our third photo session with Sarah, she is literally documenting our little girl growing up!
Sarah is so easy to work with, and instantly bonded with our little girl which allowed her to get the most amazing shots.
Next session already booked in.
Hayley and Nathan
Sarah has become part of our family after photographing every important occasion in our lives from engagement to newborn and beyond.
There is nothing she can't do and will go to great lengths to get the perfect shot!
The hardest decision you will have to make is choosing a favourite shot!
