My Favourite Locations for Family Photoshoots in Launceston

Whenever a client comes into the studio for a pre shoot consultation, one of the things we talk about is the location. It’s always something which often stumps people so i thought I would put together a list of my favourite locations for family photoshoots in Launceston!!

The Cataract Gorge

The Gorge is a family favourite of so many local families. I prefer to shoot on the Trevallyn side of the Gorge opposed to the West Launceston side as there are is a wider range of spots suitable for portraits. (even the car park has some magical backdrops for your family portraits!)

Launceston’s City Park

The City Park is a great Family friendly spot for kids big and small. The big trees are great to sit under, climb on, or in Autumn they drop enough leaves to make a giant pile to play in!

Hardwicke Street Reserve

This hidden gem is a great spot if you want to include your furry friends in your photoshoot. The dog park has a great bush feel to it, and there’s lots of opportunity for photographing in the late afternoon light (West Launceston always has the best afternoon sun!)

Arbour Park in West Launceston

I consider Arbour Park my outdoor studio! It’s just up the hill from the studio, is dog friendly, but not super well known, so your pupper isn’t so distracted by other people. and the views overlooking the city are just a bonus!

Your House!

Sometimes the best background to your photos is your own home. It’s easy, especially if you have little ones, it’s their happy place and where they feel most comfortable. Plus I love seeing all their favourite toys!

A quick list of places which I am so excited to photograph at in the coming few weeks

  • Hollybank Forrest

  • Tamar Island Wetlands

  • Punchbowl Reserve

  • Hoblers Bridge Reserve

  • Royal Park

  • Duck Reach Power Station

I’m sure there are a million other places in Launceston and it’s surrounding suburbs to take family portraits, so let me know your favourites! I’d love to add to the list! Plus if you’ve got a great idea and want me to photograph YOUR family there, then get in touch!
