Karen Ralph Photography | AboutMe




Successfully building my reputation for stunning images both in studio and off location using the Brisbane, Sunshine and Gold Coasts and surrounds as the perfect backdrop. Capturing professional imagery that is natural, artisitc, personal and meaningful whether the subject is a bride and groom, a newborns first smile or the beautiful essence of childhood.

Photography for me is about capturing the natural beauty of my clients and their personalities so that they can be treasured for generations to come. Offering a relaxed atmosphere in a home based studio or a location of choice, we offer packages to suit everyone and can tailor them to meet individual needs.


My passion for photography began many years ago but it wasn't until I had my own children that I realised how important it was capture and treasure their lives along the way, it just goes way too fast.  Our sessions sometimes get a little crazy so that we can capture the real you and  so that you can treasure those candid moments forever.  Life is just far to short.


Capturing Wedding, Maternity, Kids, Couples or Family Portraits, Pets, Glamour, Cake Smash and Newborn imagery.

You can never have too many pictures of your loved ones.
