Doncaster Family & Newborn Photographer

Creative photography for your family

Doncaster is a lovely suburb not far from Melbourne’s CBD. There is an amazing Westfield Shopping Centre which caters for almost every shopper. There are also fabulous cafes and restaurants of all types spread all around Doncaster, with new ones popping up on a regular basis. New properties are also popping up everywhere, indicating that Doncaster is a sought after area to move into. Residents love the liveability of this family-oriented area. Property prices have been driven quite high due to the influx of new residents. There is no train line but the buses go regularly and are fairly reliable for commuters to the city. It’s a beautiful area with lots of families. As a Doncaster Family Photographer, we love to capture moments and create memories for you.

Family and newborn photographer in Doncaster

Doncaster has many great sporting clubs and a great athletics facility. There are so many child-care centres and schools to choose from and the playgrounds and the parks are fabulous! Ruffey Lake Park, situated in the middle of Doncaster, is a beautiful large reserve which has running and walking tracks. There are two large playground areas at opposite ends of the park which have barbeque and picnic areas. This makes Ruffey Lake Park very popular during the weekends. There’s also the lake in the middle of the park which is a natural habitat for the wildlife. What a wonderful place.

Ruffey Lake Park is ideal for family photo shoots. There are hills and flat areas and many different trees, some of which you can climb! This Doncaster park has lots of open spaces, rockfaces and treelines which make wonderful backdrops for family photography. There’s so much parkland there that you don’t have to compete for space.

Winter is also a beautiful time to photograph there, just give the kids some gumboots and let them jump in puddles!

Summer is beautiful for family walks and picnics around Ruffey Lake Park. The cockatoos congregate in certain areas of the park and it’s quite lovely to watch them while enjoying a picnic on one of the sloping hills. If you’re after a beautiful setting for your family photography session, Ruffey Lake Park in Doncaster is one of our top picks.

As Doncaster and Doncaster East still has lots of private homes on big blocks of land with a nice backyard it’s easy to plan a family photoshoot in your own home. It all depends what you want personally in your family photos.
