The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do!

Hi, I'm Rachael Attard, photographer and owner of Storybook Photography!
I am married to my husband Anthony and together we have 3 beautiful daughters, Kaitlin and twins, Phoebe and Indianna.
On the weekends you can find me hanging out with my family. We are quite adventurous and enjoy activities like camping, bush walking, going to the beach and anything to do with exploring new places.
I am a calm, relaxed person by nature so I find enjoyment in the most simplest of things and I just love spending time with people that mean so much to me the most!
My kids are the absolute centre of my universe and they are the inspiration behind this business. After becoming a mum for the second time when my twins were born, I realised just how fast time goes and with the chaos that came with having 3 kids under 3, I later realised the only photographs I had of me with my kids were the professional ones I had taken when they were newborns. This is when I realised the importance and priceless value in my own photographs and it became something that I wanted to make sure other parents had. Raising little babies may be the most tiring experience of your life, but it's also the most amazing and precious time..... And you should have photographs to have this time documented!
Me as your photographer
I am very passionate about providing each client with a fantastic photographic experience. The studio and outdoor experience is generally quite relaxed and calm - apart from that being part of who I am, I also feel it's incredibly important to connect with you as this will help you and your family to relax and enjoy the session. After all, photo shoots don't happen all the time, so it should be a fun experience!
I am quite passionate about ensuring clients walk away with more than just a digital image from their session. Our full sessions include digital and printed products so that you can enjoy your images the way they were intended to be enjoyed.
I absolutely love photographing babies from newborn right through to 12 months including cake smash sessions, maternity, and family photography.
I love to work with different colour tones, textures and layers to create a gallery of images that present in an artful and cohesive manner, so whether they are displayed on your wall or presented in an album, all of your images tell a story about the session we have photographed.
I am a one person operation. All of the admin, photographing and post processing/after care is all done by me. It can get a little crazy at times, and yes this does mean that sometimes there may be a few delays, however this does mean that I can offer each client quality assurance as nothing leaves my studio unless it meets my standards.
Storybook Photography is more than just my business - it is my baby! I love doing what I do, and I hope to be meeting new families, seeing old families come back and creating many, many more memories for years to come!
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
