We are a family run business that has been Sydney’s most popular choice in Childcare and Preschool Photography for over 14 years. Our unique style of natural outdoor portraiture, photographing the children while they are at play in their natural environment, results in beautiful images that capture the individual personality of each child. Our easy and efficient systems and very flexible photographers make sure that photo day is smooth flowing and enjoyable for directors, staff and children. We understand that every Centre has different routines and every child within that Centre has different needs and we always try to accommodate for this.

Our relaxed, organic approach to photographing children ensure that each child is photographed at their own pace and no child is ever forced to have their photo taken. We understand that it can often take a while for children to warm up, so we will always take the time required for each child to feel comfortable and excited to have their photo taken.


Our Team

At Sandpit Photos, we pride ourselves on our team of talented and creative photographers. Our photographers have been selected for their childcare experience, passion for portrait photography, and most importantly, their affinity with children.  Our team’s number one goal is to produce beautiful photos in a fun and relaxed atmosphere
