15 weeks until Christmas!

September 8th, 2014

I know, can you beleive it? It’s amusing how each year we all say ‘It can’t be’ ‘but we’ve just got over last year’.
When we were children it seemed Christmas took FOREVER to get here each year, now as adults it seems like it just comes way too fast! 

As each year passes we grow another year older (I can hear you asking me to stop talking now!) as do our offspring. You look at that portait upon your wall, on your bedside table, on the desk at work and think ‘gee haven’t we changed since then!’

So NOW is the perfect time to have the family portraits updated.

Get the grandparents involved, the family pet or just the kids. Email us to book a shoot, we can arrange to meet and capture in one of melbourne’s gorgeous parklands. Pack a picnic make an afternoon of it. 

Call us on 0408 806 221 or drop us an email to studio@susandarcy.com.au we look forward to speaking with you!


Changes, changes everywhere!

September 4th, 2014

Does that make you think of the play school song? Maybe I have just spent too much time at home with my youngest!

As you can see I haven’t blogged for a very very long time. I have been a little busy since the end of last year. Sold and moved house, closed the shop front studio, became single (again!) and took some much much neded time out with my family and taking care of my 4 children who are now 15,12,10 and heading towards 2!

It’s now the right time to begin fresh again. Over the coming weeks we will be launching our new website. We have recently over hauled our price list with all new offerings and all new pricing. We feel its very fair and competitive with todays market and invite you to send us an email to ask for a copy – studio@susandarcy.com.au – if you are on our mailing list then you would have received news about this already this week, if you’d like to join our list please click on the link in the side bar.

Our photo sessions are still held on location. Melbourne has so many fabulous places to use for a backdrop. We can also come out and photograph in your home or a favourite spot of yours. 
Viewing of images is now all done online or you can have the choice of myself coming out to your home to go through them with you.

We’re excited to be back doing what we love, that part hasn’t changed. 

We look forward to sharing our journey with you and revisiting many of the families we have captured over the years and meeting many new ones too.



Baby Photography {Melbourne/ Sth East/ Malvern}

September 10th, 2013

Are you pregnant and thinking of newborn portraits? Now is a great to book in. We’ve extended our ‘book a pregnancy photography session get a complimentary newborn photo session’ until further notice. So pay the one fee and get 2 sessions! Drop us an email through the contact page.


For the pregnancy / maternity photo session we usually suggest booking in early and capturing the photos at between 30 and 36 weeks.

We usually recommend you book your newborn photography shoot whilst you are still pregnant. We usually book you around a week after your due date so we know how many babies we have due and we are always flexible to move your date if baby arrives early or late.

Ideally we prefer to photograph our newborn babies at under 2 weeks old. However if you found us later or didnt feel up to it we can capture your newborn or baby at any stage.


This little miss was 9 weeks old when we photographed her portraits. To see more from this little cherubs session please visit the August album on our facebook page HERE

Family Portrait Photographer {Bentleigh Family Photographer}

June 27th, 2013

You may remember our Mother’s Day competition run in conjunction with Family Deal Friday ? We gave away our biggest prize ever , worth $1225.

Our lucky winner was so completely ecstatic when I called her to tell her of her prize. This family had recently been through some stressful times and mum was so incredibly grateful to be the lucky winner.

We met at the studio in Murrumbeena to capture her family portraits. I’m very lucky to have wonderful parkland super close to the studio to use as a gorgeous backdrop for my clients photographs.

The day of the photo session was wet and cold, but thankfully the rain held off for the duration of our photoshoot and we were able to capture these beautiful images for herself and her family. To view more images from their session head on over and like our facebook page and visit the June 2013 client album.
