We asked Kristie from Inspired Portraits to photograph our family as we were all getting together from all over Australia to celebrate my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. As one can imagine, it was a very special time for us. Kristie was very professional at the shoot and new exactly how to manage large groups of various ages. Following the shoot, we were able to choose our favourites during a slideshow at her studio – this was a lot of fun. The images were amazing and captured our personalities perfectly. The end result was beyond our expectations. (Recently, even our puppy had a photo shoot with Kristie - so cute!)

About Your Portrait Photographers

Our Principal Photographer Kristie Dutson is honoured to be trusted to capture a moment in your family’s life that’s meaningful for you. Perhaps it’s a look on your son’s face that’s “just him”, or the way your little one nestles into you. Perhaps it’s how your parents envelop your children. Or the way your partner looks lovingly into your eyes. Whatever the special moment is for you, it’s Kristie’s pleasure to capture it.

Photos bring back memories, stir up strong feelings deep inside, and bring us closer to those we love.

Kristie has been a photographer for 10 years, a registered nurse, and midwife for even longer. She has 2 kids, Tara, who’s 12, and Ryan, 15 who she describes, “light up my world”. You can be sure she can relax even the most uncomfortable person - and take natural shots that will make you smile every time you walk by.

I have used Kristie Dutson from Inspired Portraits As a repeat client - 3 times! One for our dog, 1 newborn and a 1 year old cake smash! All experiences have been fantastic. My wife and I chose Kristie as we knew she was a qualified midwife. We had full confidence with her handling our precious baby and the photos just show that she is absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend:)

FAQs

How do I prepare for my session?

We understand that this is an important moment for you and you want to select the right clothes. Choose clothes that make you feel good, that are in the same colour palette as others being photographed for a coordinated look. Don’t be scared to use some colour! 

If you’re bringing children, bring their favourite soft toy or soother. Complete the questionnaire: think of characteristics and stories about your family. This will help us bring out the unique traits and individuality of each person during your session.

When do I pay?

All session fees are due before your session. This secures your booking, ensuring you get your desired date. Please see Prices for payment timelines.

What happens if I have to cancel or reschedule?

Life happens. We will work with you to figure out an alternative, suitable date and time. Also see our terms and conditions.

What types of packages do you offer - standard or tailored?

We tailor packages - we find that families like options that will suit their unique homes and preferences. You’ll be guided through this fun, easy, relaxing process during your Design Consultation.

When it was finally time to update our family photos (it had been over 12 years and well overdue) we contacted Kristie from Inspired Portraits. I was really blown away with the amount of work Kristie put in before our photo shoot. Kristie took the time to contact us all prior to the shoot to really get to know us so when the big day finally came along she had a great understanding of our personalities and how she could best capture these on her camera. We picked a stunning location for our shoot and we were so happy with how the photos came out. We now have 4 amazing pieces of artwork from our shoot up on the wall in our lounge room and every time I glance up, I can't help but smile and be grateful of my beautiful family. Thank you so much Kristie.
