Mini-sessions are short 30 minute photo sessions for up to 6 people – perfect for families with little ones who can’t sit still for too long!
A regular portrait session can cost upwards of $1000, but for $200 you’ll receive 15 professionally edited digital files (chosen by you) in a download gallery (in your choice of colour or black and white), which will be shared with you after the session. You'll also have the option to purchase extra files after the session if you want to.
You can then print out your photos as many times as you like, in whatever size you like.
Our professional photographer will capture beautiful, natural moments between you and your family. However, if you’d prefer just some photos of the kids by themselves that’s fine, too.
It’s a great way for mum and dad to get out from behind the camera and into some photos with the kids.
How to Book
Choose a session time that suits you from the list below and please include the number of people who will be attending. Places are limited so book early to avoid missing out.
Please note unicorn sessions are 20 minutes, not 30 minutes like they are for our other mini sessions. This is so the ponies can take breaks, to prevent them from becoming restless.
Unicorn sessions are most suitable for children 2 years and up. Babies and toddlers are welcome to attend but must be held by a parent during the session. There will an animal trainer present at all times to ensure the safety of everyone on site.
Please note sessions on the beach can be windy. You may want to wear your hair up or choose another location to attend a session if you are concerned.
If you have missed out on a session, you can follow us on Facebook to stay updated on all of our upcoming sessions throughout Sydney. We also run sessions on Central Coast.
Private Photo Shoot
Our private shoots are ideal if you have a date or location in mind, or if you have a large group of people. Get in touch with us on the contact form here to check our availability.
Refund Policy: 7 days notice required for a full refund. Re-scheduling requires 7 days notice. In the case of bad weather (heavy rain) the photo session may be cancelled and you'll be given the option of rescheduling or a refund.
If you need to reschedule less than 7 days before your session then a $40 rescheduling fee applies. If you need to reschedule or refund your booking, then please contact the office using the form here . Your photographer is NOT able to refund or reschedule your booking for you.

This is such a wonderful service, I love how it is affordable for families to capture these precious moments.
Christine was so lovely to deal with, always replied to emails and was very friendly. Maggie and her team captured some beautiful photos. We have used MyFamilyPhoto twice now and will continue to use. 5/5 by Adele Preston 28-5-2022
It was easy to book in the session and to find Maggie on the day. She was really friendly and the photos are all absolutely gorgeous, we are thrilled! 5/5 by Georgie Simonsen 23-2-2022
Communication with MyFamilyPhoto was so smooth. We had wet weather (sadly) cancel our event twice. Finally after the third time we were able to take part and the experience was amazing. We had a wonderful photographer (Maggie) who took the time to listen to our family and really understood what we wanted and needed. We had a lot of fun. When the photo's arrived a few days later we were absolutely blown away. We couldn't have asked for anything better and ended up purchasing the whole pack, they were too good to choose just 15. 5/5 by Stephanie Jones 17-1-2022
very good and affordable way of getting photos done 5/5 by Jennifer Tshuma 21-6-2021
This is the fifth year we have captured our family memories with My Family Photos, and the shots taken by our photographer, Maggie, were once again awesome. My family loves the fact the session isn't too long, it's outdoors and more informal, and we never have to wait long to receive our beautiful photos. Thank you. 5/5 by Belinda Rule 6-6-2021
It was fantastic! My 20 month old daughter really didn’t want to participate that day but Maggie was patient and was able to still capture her little personality. Very natural. Just beautiful. 5/5 by Rebecca 5-6-2021

Amazing! Exceeded all my expectations. I knew 30 mins would go fast but I also knew it was the perfect amount of time for my crazy active toddler & my husband who doesn’t like having his photo taken 😆 But I was concerned over how many good pics we’d actually be able to get in the timeframe because we’d have to move locations etc. Maggie was simply phenomenal! She put us as ease immediately. She was happy to ask us about any requests we might’ve had & of course, she was happy to guide us using her expert eye & captured some incredible photos of our growing family. So much so that I bought all the photos in the series when I hadn’t planned on doing that at all! Jordan was also fantastic with our toddler & we couldn’t have gotten some shots without Jordan for sure because he was able to distract Jonathan while Jared & I took some much needed couple shots. The booking, payment & after care from the team has been such a breeze as well. I’m recommending this service to everyone I know in Sydney. Best value for money I’ve come across in a long time! We’re so grateful. Thank you to the whole team for looking after us 🙏🏼 5/5 by Cheryln Sue 27-9-2020
well organized, friendly photographer and excellent photos. 5/5 by Bingyu Nightingale 22-9-2020
These are phenomenal! I can’t tell you how happy our family are at how all of these have turned out. Please extend our sincere thanks to Maggie - she was incredible to work with and our son had so much fun with her on the day! Thank you again for the ease & the top quality of the whole experience. 5/5 by Cheryln 22-9-2020
