Welcome to Lightyear Photography
We are published professional photographers that have been specialising in children’s portraiture, fine art and artistic headshots for over a decade. Whether it be a one on one portrait session or a creative collaboration we love capturing the beauty we see in everyone. We are based in Adelaide, South Australia and regularly travel to Melbourne, Victoria.
Our Fine Art portraiture is expressive and timeless, utilising various techniques to evoke a vast array of emotions and create diverse atmospheres in which we capture your child's unique personality and bring it to life.
We work one on one with your child and give them the time and space they require and desire to increase their confidence whilst offering modelling tips to best express each emotion and story being portrayed in each high quality, edited digital image.
We love capturing children's passion for dance, including their spangled costumes, death-defying leaps, & seeing their confidence multiply through their various photoshoots, competitions and recitals.
We'll work with your dancer's dynamic plethora of posing ideas, suggest adaptations to best showcase their strengths in a photographic context, whilst building their confidence and enhancing their emotional delivery on camera using diverse angles, techniques, and perspectives from the studio to the stage with immense dedication and passion.
Standing out in Adelaide's photography scene is our creative children’s photography as we skilfully mix natural candids with classic and unique portraiture to capture the essence, imagination & spontaneity of children.
Transform a day in the park into your child's secret magical wonderland, or in the studio we'll connect with your child and engage their interests to capture their personality with genuine smiles and laughter using fun and engaging props and toys during the shoot whilst encouraging them to feel proud, making them feel special, and helping them to to grow their modelling skills.
Relive your event with the bold and vibrant atmospheres that we create in our diverse images, capturing moment to moment up close. We deliberately use angles to make you really feel a part of the action during our storytelling (when possible).
Our event photography clients often feel a real sense of awe when they review our images and are amazed at the quality of the images depicting and recounting their event 'better than it was in real life'.
We are so honoured to be a part of your family's special moments - capturing the resounding love and tenderness that family has for each other through each chapter of life for a fleeting time.
Preserve and treasure the innocence of your children and their little features as they right now forever with one of our family candids and portraiture packages.
