Creating a relaxed experience & meaningful experience 

Here at Lizzy Hannaford Photography, I am committed to creating a relaxed & meaningful photography experience.

I embrace the chaos of raising little ones and draw on my lifetime of experience working with children and families from a range of backgrounds to ensure you feel safe to be yourselves, so that we can create images you love.

From providing styling guidance for the entire family to my step by step preparation guide, you can be assured you will be taken care of.

I pride myself on my down to earth nature, and value the thought that kids should be kids. My clients’ love language is quality time, so my experience focus’ on capturing the natural moments of your family together, from maternity, newborn and beyond.

I photograph my sessions in the comfort of your home in the Cairns area including, but not limited to Smithfield, Trinity Beach, Clifton Beach, Palm Cove, Kewarra Beach, Redlynch, Brinsmead.

What I Do

After experiencing the heart wrenching events of losing a close friend in an accident and a Mother figure to suicide – I have truly learnt to appreciate the short time we have in this world, and with those who mean the most to us.

Time moves on and it’s easy to forget the moments that matter the most. As a Mother myself, I find myself longing to get back memories I thought I’d remember so easily. Moments that have been forgotten through the haze of everyday life and Motherhood. 

There are periods of their babyhood that I would have no recollection of if it weren’t for the photos I took during that time. 

I want for you to have those same memories with your own loved ones. A loving embrace, a playful giggle – I want it all for you and more.
