Canterbury Family & Newborn Photographer

Stylish photography for your family

The gorgeous suburb of Canterbury is located only 10km from Melbourne’s CBD. Camberwell and Surrey Hills are closeby. And what beautiful suburbs are these for Family Photography. Lots of families inhabit these areas and the beautiful houses are perfectly suited for in home family photoshoots – and of course newborn sessions.

The exclusive residential areas surrounding Canterbury, Camberwell and Surrey Hills have lots of great family photography locations.  The area which is bordered by Balwyn Road, Mont Albert and Canterbury has even been given the name “The Golden Mile” because of this blue-chip locale. Large century-old oak trees line these streets, giving the area a feeling of tranquillity all year long. How about a family photoshoot in your backyard?

Unlike the other residential suburbs in Melbourne, Canterbury residents go about their lives a little more discreetly. There’s a lot of subtle charm to be found in Canterbury. Mailing Road offers a village-feel shopping and cafe experience. One of our favourite spots is Xocolatl, where you can indulge in rich hot chocolates and chocolates which are handmade on site. There are gift shops, jewellers, beauty establishments, grocers, butcher and small fashion boutiques for all your needs. This makes also a perfect location for a family photoshoot – a more lifestyle themed shoot.

The heritage-protected Canterbury Post Office is a beautiful building with a cafe inside called The Mailing Room. Some of the building give you a nice photo backdrop and location for your family photography in Canterbury. Canterbury has a train station which is situated between Canterbury Road and Mailing Road which makes commuting there easy. Some cool graffitis get you the Melbourne inspired feel for your photoshoot.

Locations for family photography in Canterbury

With its lush lawns, established trees and an array of gorgeous blooms, the Canterbury Gardens is a gorgeous space which is popular for gatherings and events such as weddings. It’s the perfect park in Canterbury for a relaxed family photography session.  There is plenty of shaded areas for picnics in the summer and a pathed walkway to ensure your feet stay dry in wetter weather. The
Canterbury Gardens is only a short walk from Mailing Road and is a gorgeous spot for a family photo shoot session, especially in spring or summer or autumn when the leaves change colour.

If you are a resident of Canterbury, family photos within and around your own home would be beautiful. Any of the beautiful tree-lined streets in Canterbury with their Victorian-style homes and white picket fences make for a lovely backdrop. There’s plenty of park or architectural options as well – it all comes down to what look you’re after for your own family or newborn photography session.

“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”
— Matt Hardy
