Q: "Does the perfect portrait need a smile?"

A: No. I don't think so. What do you think? 

We all love to see our kids happy. Natural smiles are definitely one of the most important things we always make happen during our photoshoots. Through playing silly games and generally mucking around, we always make children feel comfortable and just genuinely happy.

There is more to our children than just laughs though. Many children will also be inquisitive and thoughtful. Some caring and snuggly. Some cheeky and mischievous. Some whacky and ... well .... a little bit nuts and that is AWESOME! You see, for us, the BEST portraits accurately reflect the true character of a person and really celebrate who they are - not just document what they look like.

I don't know about you but my kids have A LOT of character and heaps of different (sometimes quirky) personality traits. I love their happy smiley faces but man, sometimes when I stare into my daughters eyes as she is deep in thought, it just really speaks to me. 

If you have precious little people and have been thinking about having them or your whole family professionally photographed at some point soon, then this could be a really great opportunity for you! There are soooooo many sides to our children's personalities that are worth making into great portraits. Why not book a time to have a chat with the Zanzo team about what you would love captured in your next portrait session. Also, you'll be able to secure that exclusive offer.... Oh yeah, haven't go to that bit yet!...


You can use this for a full family shoot with as many people as you like! (and we absolutely welcome the family pets too!) Imagine the walls at home decorated with some stunning portrait artwork of your kids. That would be pretty special huh?

We had a great time in the photoshoot. Dean made us feel comfortable and was great with our energetic 3 year old son. The photos are amazing and really captured who we are as a family.
