What to wear on your photo shoot?
I usually suggest all my clients to wear something casual rather than evening dresses or smart casual.
It’s just because that our family and children photo shoot is super casual at the place like Centennial Park. I rather you to wear t-sihrt and jeans, bring your picnic blanket and perhaps some toys for your little children.
So I can photograph you more naturally and capture the way that you always are!
What to bring?
Please bring big smiles with you!
Your kids are models but not enough getting jobs?
You have registered your children to be your models and actors in front of the camera, but
you are not getting enough jobs (or nothing!) at all?
Do you think that you have got the wrong the kids agency?
Hmmm.... Usually that is not the case.
Please review your kids portfolio on their website.
1: Did you take those photos with your phone?
2: Is it more than 6 months ago?
You will need to update your children's portfolio every 6 months!
I have photographed many kids models and actors who has been features on Australian TV such as Home and Away.
You will need to invest a bit more to get jobs for your kids!
Please contact Katsu, if your kids are kids models or kids actors in Sydney!

Your family photo shoot is not just a photo shoot with me, it's about having fun and enjoying the whole experience!

Sydney Treasures Photography
As much as we all need the rain, you probably don't want that during your photo shoot.
Sydney Treasures Photography is one of the most after boutique style Family & Children photography studios in Sydney, Australia.
We are very flexible on your photo shoot day. Some kids might get red spots on their face out of blue. (although we can photoshop most of the issues like that)
But it if rains on the day, we can always chat the night before or even on the day to re-shcedule without any additional fee.
We would like you to get the best results for your photos, so please chat with me (Katsu).
Centennial Park is very green and beautiful especially this time of the year.
Please message Katsu to book your family photo session!

Morning or Afternoon?
This is one of the questions that I get ask frequently when my clients book me.
The reason why we chose Centennial Park or Nielsen Park as our default locations are...
so photo sessions can be done either morning or afternoon.
Great lighting & beautiful backdrops through the day there.
But I usually suggest morning to all my clients especially when you have little kids as they are more active and fresh in the morning. (less grumpy too!)
A lot of morning on the weekends will get booked out early. So Please message us early if you would
like to book your family portrait or kids photography!

When you look through our website, you may notice that our family & children photo shoots are always either at Centennial Park or Nielsen Park. Why not Sydney's beautiful beach?
Well, just to avoid the confusion, WE CAN photograph you on the beach or wherever you would like to be photographed. (additional $150 for your favourite location - Please see our Pricing Page)
The reason that we have decided our default locations at those parks are:
As all we know, lighting is one of the most important factors for the best results.
We have photographed at so many different locations in Sydney over the years.
And we have realised that Centennial Park or Nielsen Park has the best lighting through the day.
Usually kids are more fresh in the morning, so a lot of our clients prefer morning sessions rather than late afternoon.
Some photographers loves photographing family photos under the sun. But not so much with us.
Just like studio photographers control lighting with the studio lighting, we would like to control the lighting for the best results. However, when we do the photo session at the park, how are we going to control the lighting (the sun)? Obviously, we can adjust the brightness or directions of the sun, so getting you position under the big trees is the way to go. It create beautiful & soft lighting that way.
When we photograph family portraits & children photography, we prefer the background to be super plain. (please see our photo gallery!) So you and your kids will stand out more not to be distracted by other things like houses, cars or other people around. Have you noticed that the most of our photos has almost no background?
Now you know the reason that we don't do MUCH photo sessions on the beaches.
If you still would like to have your photo sessions on the beach, we can go somewhere very quiet late afternoon. Maybe Little Bay Beach could be an option in Sydney!
Once again, Thank you for visiting my website. :)
My name is Katsu Nojiri. I am the owner photographer of Sydney Treasures Photography.
On this page, I thought that I write whatever I feel on the day!
Today, I would like to introduce myself briefly.
You probably can tell from my name but I am original from Kyoto, Japan.
I have moved to Sydney, Australia in 1996. Yes, it's been 21 years already. Time does fly.
My full name is Katsuhito but it's just too long for the most of people so people call me Katsu or Kats.
I live in a little apartment in Surry Hills where I edit all my work. I do not have fancy studios that you can walk in or see from the street. It's only because my photography style (Natural & Candid) need a lot of natural lights in the shade.
This is one of the reasons that I prefer to photograph family and children at Centennial Park or Nielsen Park where has a lot of big trees, so we can photography you beautifully inside the shade and the background at those parks are always great, too. (and of course lighting is important!)
I have updated my website the end of 2017. All my work is new, the website design is more modern, simple and affordable for everyone.
I hope that you all like my work. :)
I look forward to photographing your little ones and family!
Your photographer - Katsu Nojiri
