We are very blessed to have customers who take the time to write us thank you cards, testimonials, Facebook reviews, and many more ..... saying how much they loved the experience and would highly recommend us (as they have!)
We now have hundreds of these testimonials and it is a constant reminder that the effort we put in doesn't go unnoticed.
We love our customers!
When we get a review we read it out loud to our team as a pat on the back for making our customers feel special.
After all, every time you look at your photos you will remember the day, the gardens, our staff, and then all the other interactions we have with you choosing photos, wall designing and framing. We want that memory to be something that makes you smile!
"Your TEAM must go home each day, with complete satisfaction..."
What can we say!!!! We are just thrilled with our photos. It has taken us a long time to organise this and am so glad it has all come together.
We feel fortunate to have found you and encourage any other prospective clients to try your company and they too will be as excited as us. I am happy that our Family Photos can be passed down to future generations, this is our HISTORY.
Your TEAM must go home each day, with complete satisfaction!!!!
Your attention to all the small details is amazing, each contact with the Company leaves me in awe!
Keep up the great work, it is certainly being noticed and appreciated...
We sincerely thank you,
The Farley Family.
"We were amazed at how well you worked with our
energetic and excited daughters..."
We just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful experience you provided at our family portrait shoot. Your charismatic team made us feel so welcome and comfortable and we were amazed at how well you worked with our energetic and excited daughters, as well as us nervous adults.
You not only photographed our family but also created and captured moments of joy and love. The most enchanting photos were of spontaneous events while our daughters played together.
We never anticipated that viewing the photos would be an emotional time but it was a delight to see our family captured so beautifully. We couldn’t be happier with the end result.
Credit goes to you and your team and how you were able to engineer these moments in such a natural way. To now have these to keep and view forever is a most precious treasure. We are so glad that we chose ‘Family Image’ to capture this time in our families life. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone.
Thank you again and kind regards,
Karen and Joshua Lee
"The photos of my girls are perfect, they capture their innocence,
their beauty, their love for each other..."
Dear Brian and the team,
At the outset, what I wanted most, was beautiful natural photos of my girls,
in a beautiful natural setting. Well, I got that, and so much more!
Your team of talented young professionals, quickly established an easy rapport with my girls, and that really shows in my girls natural smiles in the end results.
The Dural studio displayed nature at its best, offering a variety of differing photo settings, and that, coupled with an experienced team, made the photo shoot experience positive and fun for all.
The theatre style viewing studio with treats for the girls, was a stylish and special touch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Family Image Photography to others.
The photos of my girls are perfect, they capture their innocence, their beauty, their love for each other.
We will forever cherish our photos.

"Right from the word go- it was easy and lots of fun..."
Dear Brian, Kaylene and the Family Image team,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to write and say Thank you for making my experience at Family Image such a good one.
Right from the word go- it was easy and lots of fun. My children had loads of fun at the shoots and the pictures that were taken took my breath away they were so good. My husband is going to love his Birthday surprise and it will forever be a reminder as it takes pride of place on our wall.
I can honestly say that I have never seen pictures that capture the true essence of childhood and are so natural like the ones we had taken at Family Image.
I am 100% positive that I will make a third trip back to Family Image in another 5 or so years when the kids are a little older- it was such a blast to see how much they had grown between our first and second visits.
Anyway, a massive Thank you!!!!
I have shown my 'brag book' all around work and everyone agrees the photos are amazing.
Take care and see you soon,
"The service we receive every time we attend
your garden studio is second to none..."
We have had 2 photo shoots with Family Image Photography in the past 4 years, and intend to return many times in future to have the changing face of our family recorded. The photos themselves are warm and manage to capture something about us that isn’t quite tangible, making each picture uniquely ours.
The walls of our home are covered in Family Image portraits and never fail to capture the attention of visitors who comment on how lovely they are.
For us though, it’s about more than the pictures. Ray and I are committed to supporting small businesses who offer personalized service and we’re happy to pay a premium for that.
The service we receive every time we attend your garden studio is second to none – you have managed to walk that tightrope between professionalism and welcoming warmth perfectly.
Our youngest child has real stranger anxiety, so we are in awe at Brian’s ability to have earned her trust in a short space of time, she often fondly points to the pictures and remembers playing with “her Brian”. The whole process from beginning to end is done calmly and with patience – and the images reflect this.
I love that there’s no hard sell when we chose our pictures – the images sell themselves, and a lack of packages mean that we don’t feel obligated to buy pictures we don’t want. And again, with professionalism and patience, you always guide us towards choosing the images that are right for us – whether in black and white, sepia or colour, large or small,
as a stand-alone or part of a set. I think it’s important to note that unlike past professional photos we’ve had taken, these images actually end up on our walls (and they stay there).
Having the framing done through you is something I love as you just know what works with your photographs to make them look amazing, and the framing prices are very competitive.
We can’t thank you enough for the service you provide. It’s your attention to detail and consistency that set Family Image apart.
Our investment in your service is one that we are reminded of everyday as we glance at the images on our walls and as far as we are concerned every dollar was money well spent.
All the best.
"We were very impressed with your team as they
managed such a range of ages.."
Thank you to you all!
What a professional time we had for our family photo session recently! We were very impressed with your team as they managed such a range of ages to result in such a great selection of beautiful photos. Such patience and friendliness paid off. Loved the viewing experience in the 'theatre' and the gift of the 'brag book' was the icing on the cake.
The Byrne Family.
"You have a great way with people and made us feel
relaxed and comfortable"
Thank you for the Brag Book!
It's so cute! and will always remind us of the lovely photos we 'didnt' order!
The whole experience with Family Image has been wonderful. Brian you have a great way with people and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. I have given your name to several friends already.
"The different settings are beautiful and the photos are amazing"
We booked the photo session for our Mothers 70th Birthday so that she could have some photos of her 3 grandchildren together aged 3, 4 and 24.
We only had one possible day to book because the 2 younger cousins live in Queensland and had come down to Sydney for Christmas. When we explained our situation, Family Image Photography fitted us in on the Sunday before Christmas.
Brian was amazing with the younger ones (and the 24 year old one!) and within 2 minutes they were posing on cue! The different settings are beautiful and the photos are amazing.
The surprise gift that arrived in the post made Nan a very happy lady!
Thank you so much, these photos will be treasured forever.
"I would recommend Family Image any time!"
Thank you, you did a great job capturing those very special and rare moments. My kids really enjoyed the experience, I was surprised that they did but glad at the same time. It was most memorable and the photos will be treasured.
Thank you all for your time and patience.
Loved the whole experience down to the viewing session, very well done. I would recommend Family Image any time!
"We were blown away with the creativity and quality of work that was produced"
Every few years our family have photos taken with a professional photographer. This is something we like to do, so that we have beautiful photographs of us through the years. Our last shots were taken by Family Image Photography now situated in Dural.
The photos are amazing, they show our family relaxed and natural in different outdoor settings.
These settings are so unique and what Brian has achieved creating these beautiful landscapes is just magnificent! Their new place is beautiful. Being photographed was a huge amount of fun with Brian, Kaylene & their team, we felt relaxed and laughed a lot while they created artworks with us in them!
We were blown away with the creativity and quality of work that was produced.
We are definitely going back to Family Image for our next photographic session.
"We had such a lovely time having the photos taken and viewing them...
Everyone has been so lovely"
Thank you so much for the beautiful brag book that you posted. It was a wonderful surprise!
It was so hard deciding on what photos to buy – there were so many beautiful ones. It’s so nice to have a reminder of the day and all the photos taken.
We had such a lovely time having the photos taken and viewing them last Saturday. Everyone has been so lovely.

"We enjoyed every minute of it and are so pleased with the beautiful photos"
We had a wonderful time with the team at Family Image Photography. They made us feel welcome and completely at ease.
The location was stunning!!
Having our growing family photographed was a very special occasion and the viewing of the photos at the studio was an experience to remember! We enjoyed every minute of it and are so pleased with the beautiful photos.
We will definitely recommend Family Image Photography to other families and friends!
"The photo's are so HONEST and captured the TRUE SPIRIT of my kids..."
To Brian and you're amazing team,
We just wanted to say a Big thank you for the great experience we had the other day at our photo shoot. This was our second visit with Family Image, but our first at you're new Dural garden studio.
The river/beach setting was amazing and soooo fun. Rebekah and Kristelle, you were so patient and encouraging with my children especially our wild water loving 2 yr old boy. You made us all feel special from the time we saw our personal welcome sign to all the fun places in the garden you took our shots. The photo's are so HONEST and captured the TRUE SPIRIT of my kids I thank you. Great job
The Allsop Family
"We didn't want unnatural looking portraits and you managed to get it just right"
Thanks very much for giving us these lovely memories. We didn't want unnatural looking portraits and you managed to get it just right. We also had a fun afternoon, and would recommend you 100%.

"We must admit that we were rather amazed at how well they turned out"
Dear Family Image,
THANK YOU for the wonderful photos of Michael and myself!
We must admit that we were rather amazed at how well they turned out. These photos are no doubt the work of a true professional, since there's no way we could look that good under normal photographic circumstances.
As you no doubt would have guessed, we were somewhat nervous about this shoot initially. However, your kind encouragement throughout the session to relax and to simply enjoy the shoot, succeeded - and we found ourselves rather enjoying it, in the end - especially splashing our feet in the dam!
We have emailed the photos you sent us to our family overseas (who gave us this photo shoot as our wedding anniversary present), and they are as thrilled as we are with the photos.
Thank you all again
Mary and Michael Mooney
"Every part of the process at Family Image from the booking of the session to the framing of the photos is done such a professional yet family way"
Dear Brian and Kaylene,
Thank you once again for amazing us with so many beautiful photos of our family. This was our third visit to Family Image in 8 years but our first at your new Dural Garden Studio. We were all so excited to see the new studio and the boys were eager to explore and discover everything.
As with every visit we have had, Family Image has once again managed to beautifully capture some wonderful memories for us and helped to document the growth of our family. As you know each of our boys has a very distinct personality and every photo captures that perfectly.
As we look back at photos taken by Family Image in the past and those in past brag books and our new little one (beautiful as always thank you) memories of the photo session come flooding back as we recall every moment.
Every part of the process at Family Image from the booking of the session to the framing of the photos is done such a professional yet family way. Both yourself, Kaylene and all the staff at Family Image have made us feel like we are very much part of the Family Image family.
We look forward to creating many more memories with Family Image in the years to come.
Michelle, Lucas, Andrew, Matthew and Samuel Scarsbrook
"Thank You for such a wonderful experience having our
photos taken, the day was so relaxed"
We would like to say Thank You for such a wonderful experience having our photos taken, the day was so relaxed and having a 10 month old baby can sometimes make things difficult but the team were fantastic with him and he loved the day as well!
We had such fun seeing what had been created that day and are so excited to collect our final images and decorate our walls with such superb photos.
I wouldn't recommend (going to) anyone else.
"I spent a lot of time researching family photographers in Sydney
and Family Image were by far the best..."
Dear Family Image,
Our daughter is growing up so quickly, I wanted to capture some real family moments for us to have for the future.
I spent a lot of time researching family photographers in Sydney and Family Image were by far the best. I didn't expect to see a beach scene in the middle of Dural. The landscape is impressive, cleverly designed to create many different photo opportunities.
We are delighted with our gorgeous photos and the brag book. Many thanks again for the wonderful 'stress free' experience.
The Millard Family :-)
"Every little touch to our experience with Family Image
Photography left us pleasantly surprised"
We had a fantastic time with Brian on our family shoot. The surroundings were inspirational and we knew it would produce some beautiful photos. We explored the outdoor studio and walked through sandy beaches, country style dirt roads and sat along the jetty that overlooked the pond. Every part of the shoot was relaxed, enjoyable and extremely fun.
Family Image Photography went beyond expectations with their friendly attitude, beautiful surroundings and the exceptional quality of the photos. Sitting in the viewing room, drinks in hand, we had the full VIP treatment as we selected our photos from the cinema style big screen. Every little touch to our experience with Family Image Photography left us pleasantly surprised.
"Thank you for a wonderful family experience"
We found having the family photographs taken a very relaxed and happy experience All involved were easy to communicate with and had a professional and confident approach and they gained the trust and cooperation of all of the grandchildren. We have already recommended you to several of our friends and I am sure when the photos are in place in our home they will be much admired.
Thank you for a wonderful family experience.
Rosemary and Brian Weaver.
