Family Portraits

We cover pregnancy to newborn, toddlers, teenagers and adult families, no matter what stage of life. Whether it be studio or natural outdoors photographs they are always fun for the whole family.

Family portraits are fun and relaxed sessions about capturing your life’s journey as a family. There are many milestones as children grow up and it is important to remember them. My children love looking at photographs of themselves and of us as a family regardless of how old they are.

Family portraits can be either indoors or outdoors. Generally outdoor sessions are done using the last hour of daylight as it is the best time of day to photograph to achieve beautiful light.

We truly believe in the longevity of the printed mediums such as prints, wall art and albums and printed box sets to display your portraits.

Family portrait sessions have a sitting fee of $150 and portrait products start from $260. Outdoor sessions are usually scheduled for late afternoon as the light is at its best.

Brisbane Family Portraits


“It was a pleasure to work with Chris – he has a great personality and was able to capture our outgoing nature quickly and without fuss, which is a great effort with the rain on the day but he made everything stress free and fun – and the finished product is amazing. Thanks doesn’t even cover it”

Hamish and Kristie

“Thankyou so very much to you and Michelle for the gorgeous photo. It will definitely take pride of place in our home for many years to come. We can see why you are both so highly awarded. Thank you again”

Nikki and David

“Chris was very helpful and professional the whole time. He even did the grooms buttonhole as no one was sure how to pin it to stay upright. The photography results were amazing too. We would highly recommend him!”

Selina & Vincent

“Chris and his wife Michelle were amazing from the start. We shopped around for a photographer, and after a few minutes with Chris we knew he was the Photographer for us. Funny but professional, Chris really clicked with us. They both really put us at ease all day. Our guests have continuously commented on them and the great job they did. The photos themselves are exactly what we had in mind. We couldn’t be happier! We just wish more of our friends and family lived in Brisbane so we could refer Chris Thomas Photography to them!”

Ken & Tina

“Dear Chris and Michelle, thank you for sharing our wedding day with us. We really had a wonderful time. Without you we would not have been able to capture those special moments. Memories we now have for a life time.``

Melissa & Kevin

“Chris and Michelle, you are both simply amazing! We are so impressed with the quality and creativity of the photos that you took. We really appreciate all of your hard work in providing us with such top quality photos. It’s absolutely wonderful to have such great memories captured in print. Both of us had such a fantastic day and want to thank you for your part in it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

Brad & Amanda

“A lot of wedding parties find photography rushed and stressful. Our day with Christopher Thomas Photography was fantastic – we were relaxed and really enjoyed the process which is reflected in the incredible photographs they took. The photographers blended into the background – how they got the photos they did, I don’t know!”
