Hi, I'm Rachael Attard, photographer and owner of Storybook Photography!
I am very passionate about providing each client with a fantastic photographic experience with high quality service and a beautiful range of professional grade products for clients to choose from.
My main speciality is photographing maternity, newborns and babies, however I also photograph families and cake smash sessions.
Safety is a priority in my studio - I'm an accredited photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, am fully insured, trained to handle and pose babies safely and up to date with my immunisations, including the yearly flu vaccine.
As a mum myself, I understand the importance of not just creating memories, but preserving them. Before having children, I used to always hear people tell me that time goes fast, but I never understood just how fast it goes, until I became a mum myself! And even when I look back and remember the days that felt oh so long, I realise they weren't that long at all! It was actually this very sentiment that was the push behind me starting a photography business - So that I can help families all over Sydney preserve some of the most momentous times in their families life journey.
As a your photographer, I don't just capture your moments - I create them. From start to finish, each session is carefully planned to include elements that are unique to each client. I rarely repeat set ups unless clients have requested me to do as one of the things I enjoy the most about photographing sessions is the creative challenge behind using what I have in as many different ways as possible!
I love to work with different colour tones, textures and layers to create a gallery of images that present in artful and cohesive manner, so whether they are hung on your wall or presented in an album, they work nicely together.
On a personal level, I married my husband in 2006. I became a mum for the first time in 2011 to my beautiful Kaitlin and for the second time to my beautiful twin daughters, Phoebe and Indianna in 2013.
In my spare time, I enjoy some down time with my family. You will usually find me tinkering around the house or out and about enjoying the sunshine. As a family we love exploring new places, eating good food and camping.
I'm a pretty chilled out person and generally enjoy all the wonderful things that nature has to offer.
Photography is something that brings me joy, and I look forward to meeting you and your family very soon!
