Family Photography Newcastle

    Candid Family Photography, Newcastle NSW

    Hey there! How exciting, you found me! My name is James White and I am a Newcastle family photographer, located on the picturesque East Coast of Australia. Family photography in Newcastle NSW is a really special component of my business to me. It takes me to all different places around the Coast, and it brings me in contact with so many amazing lovely and kind families, just like yours. Let me say, without being to presumptious, if you want a portrait session that is both fun, and lively, and images that make you feel both warm and fuzzy every time you see them, then I just might be your guy! Enough small talk, let's get to it!

    When I started my business providing portraits in the Newcastle region, I had no idea how amazing a journey it would be. On a daily basis, I meet the most beautiful and loving people. Every one of them with an amazing story to be told. I have to pinch myself every day to make sure I am not dreaming.

    Capturing amazing imagery that will live on, forever in the minds of my clients is what I do. Newcastle families are special, laid back, easy going, and full of life. It is simply such a pleasure to be involved in capturing memories that will make people smile for years and years to come. Given the surrounding beauty of the region, its National Parks and stunning beaches, I do not shoot in a studio, and conduct all sessions outdoors across the entire coast, from Newcastle down to Gosford and everything in between.

    Ensuring that all families have access to my services, I have worked hard to create a diverse range of family portrait packages. These packages cater to those families just after digital files, those after physical prints, and those wanting both!

    Not only is it my job to capture beautiful shots of your family, portrait work also includes getting to know my families, almost becoming friends with them in order to ensure getting the best out of them, and ultimately to create artwork that they can cherish forever, and an experience they will never forget.

    I pride myself as one of the best family portrait photographers in Newcastle NSW. I like to think that my genuine passion for the job, and my love of working with fun, loving families makes this a breeze for me. When you attend your photoshoot at one of our various locations, you will find you are getting more than just family portraits, you are getting an experience. There will be laughter, there will be tears (of joy), and the kids will probably run amok (I may or may not incite this towards the end of our session...great for candid family portraits).

    That's enough from me for now, so while you take that all in, why not have a quick peak at my portfolio, and maybe some of my blogs to get a better idea of whether or not I am the right guy for you. If you love what you see, and you think we might be a great match, then let's do this, let's start talking and planning your perfect family photoshoot!

    What my Families Say About Me

    The Kirovski Family

    The Ireland Family

    The Pattison Family

    The Summers Family

    We had the best time ever getting family photos with James . He put the 3 kids at ease immediately and the whole experience was fun and relaxed. We didn't want to leave!

    We are so happy with all of our photos and the hardest part will be choosing which ones to blow up to hang on our wall for everyone to see!

    Cannot thank James enough for these moments to treasure forever, so excited for our next shoot with you x


    James is an awesome bloke, easy to talk to making for a fun photo session and put us all at ease! After a few minutes it felt like we were with an old friend. So happy with all of our digital portraits that we could not resist the urge to purchase some enlarged wall art pieces to hang prominently in our new home! Thank you James!


    Could not recommend James enough! We fell in love with his work and then when we had our own opportunity to get family photos, my little girls fell in love with him too!! James is brilliant with kids, it's a gift! Nothing was too much trouble and the photos we now have are a true reflection of our family, so candid and raw all that is due to how easy and relaxed James made us feel! Thank you!! Cannot wait to do it again as the girls grow up!


    We absolutely love the pics James took of our family recently. Getting three kids to not only look at the camera, but all smile at once is no mean feat, but James's friendly, relaxed, non invasive approach to taking pics meant we now have some family memories to keep. Thanks so much.
