Your Life Your Way

Without Pretense

Imperfectly Beautiful

Hi, I am Tanya Andersson, a documentary family photographer in Brisbane

If you have not heard about this genre of photography before, let me tell you, it is not for everyone. It’s only for courageous mums who can resist Insta perfection. Mums who can let go of control and embrace the uniqueness of their families. Mums who are brave enough to allow a photographer into their homes to document their life. Life as it is, with drama and giggles, tickles and tantrums, snotty noses and sticky fingers. A life that flies and kids that grow up in an instant.


Pictures at sunset

The portraits at sunset with family lined up in matching outfits, kids washed and dressed for the occasion. Everybody’s looking into the camera, smiling. You know, exactly, what X got done last summer and what Y has on her wall… If you are looking for this kind of photo, you have to look somewhere else.


Documentary family photography

As a documentary family photographer, I deliver images, you have never seen before. Photo of you kissing your kids, drying their tears, putting them to bed or reading a book. Have you ever seen yourself through the eyes of your children? Being a mother myself, I know that mums don’t have time to check how they look at those moments. You are busy looking after your family. 


Priceless legacy

So, let me show you how breathtakingly beautiful those moments are! I love documenting families and create authentic and unique family photos. Photographs printed and beautifully presented in a photo book will become a priceless legacy for your children to treasure for a very long time.

Don’t wait for things to become perfect. They never will…Time will pass regardless, and you’ll never get those moments back.

I know, it’s not easy to let a stranger into your home, so if you would like to learn more about me go here…

Portrait of Tanya Andersson Brisbane Family Photographer.

“…I love the honesty in your pictures, and I love the rawness… Every family should be so lucky to capture those everyday life moments of chaos and beauty to remember forever how special they are…”

“Seeing… in pics…our connection to each other…like it’s a tangible thing just fills me up with so much love that…my eyes start leaking!! My heart swells up… It’s so personal, so intimate but something I am proud to show everyone.”

“You really see…and embrace…and celebrate the beauty in everyday.
The imperfections are what you find most beautiful…”
