Kind words from beautiful families

I absolutely love documenting the moments and connection for families throughout the different seasons of life. Here's some kind words from some families I have had the honour of photographing recently...

My husband gifted me a photo session with Mikaela, who was so accommodating, professional and approachable. She assisted with outfits and colour scheme ideas, so our clothes won't date for years to come in the photographs when looking back.

She captured our family perfectly, capturing our baby girl and our beloved fur babies too.

The lighting of the photos and the angles and scenes she photographed gave us a broad number of stills to select from.

When picking up our printed photos, the presentation of the photos, photobox, USB stick and a natural raw theme to the presentation as a whole was so special - I'm a Graphic Designer and the attention to detail and thought behind everything Mikaela has created and linked all elements together is wonderful and very much appreciated. You can tell she has selected quality products and has pride in what she does and produces.

Thank you Mikaela - our photos, we will cherish forever and can't wait to get you to document another special milestone for us in the future -

I decided to get newborn photos with my third child. I now regret not doing it with the other two. I noticed the most beautiful newborn photos around my local maternity ward which were taken by Kirra Photography. Which is why I initially booked with Mikaela. Little did I know I had booked the most amazing experience. Mikaela took the time with our family, we were never rushed or kept on a time limit. The photos are more than I could have even imagined. The presentation of the photos the with torn edges and little box just make them extra special. My baby was born during covid-19 lockdowns. Communication was excellent. If you book with Kirra Photography you will not be disappointed.


We found Mikaela when we were originally looking for someone to capture the birth of our son. Then Covid happened and sadly the plans had to change. We switched to a newborn shoot which included a complimentary maternity shoot. The maternity shoot was lovely at a beautiful outdoor location. The newborn shoot was pushed back due to Covid and lockdown 2.0 but Mikaela remained in contact throughout with updates and we eventually did Arlen’s newborn shoot when he was 6 weeks old. The whole shoot was wonderful. Mikaela took her time and was so soft and gentle. The pictures she took are beautiful. Next time round we hope she may be able to capture the birth of our next child and we will most certainly be using her talents for a next newborn shoot as well.


Mikaela did such an amazing job capturing our beautiful day,

Highly recommend Mikaela, our day was captured beautifully. Everything was easy and free flowing. Mikaela helped everyone involved to be comfortable, even to the point of bringing an extra pair of flat shoes for the bride, so she was more comfortable for the photos. Mikaela put in some long hours on our wedding day, making sure she captured every detail of our day. Thank you once again!


Mikaela has photographed our maternity, newborn, cake smash and family sessions.

Each time Mikaela has put all of us at ease with her gentle nature - the most impressive being the newborn session she had our colic baby relaxed and photographed beautifully!

We have been beyond impressed with all the photos we have received back and will continue to choose Kirra Photography as our family photographer!


Mikaela from Kirra Photography made our experience so comfortable and the quality was amazing! We had our maternity and newborn photos done and the communication with all the lockdown protocols, she kept us informed and reassured about our photo shoots and flexibility with dates. When it was time for our newborn shoot - our little girl was fussy and Mikaela was so patient with our daughter and our other three older boys, she was super professional and this made the whole experience laid back and the photos came out AMAZING! We got our photos without a great waiting period on a wooden USB and prints in a locally made box that made it super special! Thankyou will definitely be coming back and using her for any photo shoots we need!
