    This is our 3rd Session with Darren and being the first since the COVID restriction was lifted left even more special than usual. As always our family was treated like stars and given a full workout of scenes including a few tense ones with pets! Might be tricky to get the 4th shoot in before the kids are too tall/cool/old but we will try.

    The work that Darren and Tracey do in the photographic art space is fantastic, and in our view second to none. This interesting and remarkably innovative couple have many years of experience with photo shoots, and its their ability to bring out the absolute best from their subject that really seems to set them apart. I cant recommend these guys highly enough for your next family or business event. Domenic Strangio Senior Partner Arrive Accountants

    The photo's of my parents and the grandkids were simply beautiful. My dad passed away recently and we were so glad we had these pictures taken. They captured so well the relationship he had with the grand kids and more importantly the love he and mum shared. Thank you for these lifelong memories.

    Please let me personally share how important and valuable your brilliant photos of my family are to me and to the kids. Not only being able to see how the kids have grown up over the past years but to see them with my beautiful wife and mother will be treasured for ever thanks again.

    When I purchased my new car I received a gift voucher for a portrait with Lifestyle Portraits. I rang at the last minute and spoke to Tracy who gave us a session time at 9.15am on a Saturday morning. It was hard to convince Leon my partner to get up so early on a really cold morning for an outdoor photo shoot. We arrived a bit out of sorts. However, the day turned out to be a really fun morning. Under the professional direction of Darren the company's photographer we were immediately put at ease. His ability to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera was remarkable, and the results were clear to see in the final photos. Instead of it being a daunting experience it was a day that fond and enjoyable memories were made. There was a lot of fun and laughter, and the early morning light made us more photogenic. Darren made us feel like movie stars and the portraits were so good we couldn't help ordering more !
