How we LOVE our family photos! We chose Lannie to photograph our family after seeing some of her work.
Prior to the day, she learnt as much as possible to ensure she understood what we wanted to achieve.
On the day, our kids took instantly to Lannie. I think her secret is keeping the whole shoot fun and very informal.
We played, we rolled in the grass, the kids laughed (they fought), they ate ...and rested.
It was so natural and the result is a collection of photographs that together tell a story of us as a family, and individually capture a precious moment in time.
Through all the fun Lannie somehow got pictures that are so captivating I can't stop looking at them.
Others make me smile, some make me gush.
It would not have been possible to achieve this without connecting with the kids.
Lannie makes it seem effortless and doesn't expect the children to do anything they don't want to – whatever they throw at her, she can work with it.
My eldest still talks about 'Lannie who took our photos'. We have beautiful pictures, but also wonderful memories and stories from the day to go with each picture.

Lannie did a family shoot for us and the photos were amazing!
Our 14 month old daughter was coming down with a virus at the time and wasn't the most cooperative photographic subject so we really didn't think that we would have many great shots.
We were so wrong - we had so many that we couldn't even choose a few favourites, we loved them all!!
Lannie is brilliant with kids (and so patient!) and they really are captivated by her so even if they are not at their best, Lannie brings the best out of them in her photos.
Her eye and creative style produce simply amazing, stunning photos and I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone looking for a family photographer.

Lannie has been taking our family's annual portrait since my youngest daughter was born. She is now seven!
Nothing gives me more pleasure to see our natural and beautiful family portraits adorning our wall. We have lived in three countries since the children were born and I think of our portraits as our constant link.
It doesn't ...matter what city we live, here is our little family growing together year on year. Our portraits are put up in every apartment we live and the children love pointing them out to friends old and new.
Lannie is amazing with the kids and they look forward to seeing her every year. She gets the best out of them and captures them as they are in 'real life' for that year.
I thoroughly recommend Lannie as a photographer. She has created for us a timeline of our family which we hope to keep going for many years to come.

We have had Lannie take our pregnancy and family photographs and each time we are amazed at the quality of shots she was able to get........even when our little cherubs were being difficult :O)
What we love is that the photos tell a story of our family, they are not posed in any way but candid natural images that truly reflect our boys personalities.
The way in which she is able to interact with the kids really makes a difference, our eldest is usually very shy and reserved, but with Lannie, he is captivated by her!
The shoot is always fun in a setting you and the kids are comfortable in. I would urge anyone who is looking for a creative family photographer to book with Lannie.

Lannie has worked with Red Candy Creative Agency as one of my photographers for over 8 years. I think that statement says it all!
I’ve continued to bring her on board for projects because she delivers every time. Her shots are exquisite, she’s professional, flexible, creative, reliable and a lot of fun to have around.
She fits right into our team and we all work together like a well oiled machine.
Lannie is a very gifted photographer, but her real talent lies in her ability to see the world and capture it differently.
For this and all of her other qualities, I’m very grateful to have Lannie as part of my team.

Lannie is professional, friendly and incredibly talented!
They say you should never work with kids or animals and for our family photos she had to deal with both!
Before she had even said hello our kids (2 year old and nearly 5 year old) were hanging off her and so comfortable (and they're not normally like that!).
She made the whole process fun and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

We used Lannie for both our wedding and newborn shoots. Couldn't have been happier with the photos!
Lannie was great to work with and was able to capture the atmosphere perfectly.
She made us feel very comfortable and the kids (and dog) absolutely loved her!
She managed to get great shots of even the hardest to photograph. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality professional photographer.

Family Photography & Video
A photograph can capture those brief glimpses of childhood so much more effectively than I can with words.
However, sometimes it takes a professional to reveal and uncover my children’s world a little bit more. These shots were beautifully shot by Alanna McTiernan.
I love these photos because it shows me as part of their world, something that I could never accomplish with my own photos (nor can Johnny with his own loveable, photographic incompetence. Ha!)
These were taken on a typical Saturday afternoon spent at home. It was not a special day. There was no special background. And we were up to nothing at all. This is our world, and I am completely happy in it.

When watching my family short film by Lannie, I feel like I have opened a time capsule. My family has been captured at our most natural, straight out of bed, ready for the day ahead.
This film is ‘uniquely us’, my childhood music box made by my father is featured, my daughter playing with it, the tinkly tune playing in the background.
Matilda eating toothpaste, something that drives me crazy at present but I’m sure will be looked back on as ‘one of those cute things’ she did. Lannie captured the bond between our family.
Every morning I wake with George, we have snuggles and play before getting up. Wayne and Matilda share moments on the trampoline, something I’m sure she will look back at and cherish.
Lannie captured fleeting moments and preserved them, allowing us to look back and remember a time that seems to be ever moving behind.

It was fabulous working with Lannie for our corporate photoshoot. She made me feel relaxed and at ease allowing for a natural shot to be taken.
Thanks again Lannie, I love the shots you captured!

I love Lannie's work! Being in front of a camera is not my favourite place to be, but Lannie always, always makes me feel so at ease and natural. I think she has a knack for bringing out the real me.
I've worked with Lannie for years in a professional setting as our team food photographer, but our shoot together at the end of last year was a lifestyle shoot...of me. So I was nervous. But Lannie has a way of making me smile - that
incredibly natural smile that's usually reserved for no-camera zones. I am so grateful. Thanks Lannie! Till the next shoot...maybe we'll do the side of a mountain!
I hadn't had a headshot taken for 10 years, and was in desperate need of a new one. A friend put me onto Lannie, and I don't think I will ever need to look for a new photographer.
She made us feel so comfortable, was so much fun and took beautiful photos!
Jaimi and I were so happy with our shots, and I am so excited to use Lannie in the future!
