About Me

Hi and welcome to my website! Thanks for stopping by!

This is me! I’m a passionate Gold Coast photographer, offering your family timeless newborn, maternity, family, children and cake smash photography.

I fell in love with photography at a young age and from the moment I took possession of my first camera I set about taking images that captured a moment, preserved a memory and evoked that special feeling for me.

Always behindLeanne Handreck Photographerthe camera, I love being able to capture those special moments in people’s lives that they will look back on and cherish forever. My goal is to capture your personalities, the emotions, the love and the laughter that comes out during our sessions, which truly represent who you are.

I have worked in the Arts and Publishing industry for 15+ years at the National Gallery of Australia and also Sub-Editor for magazines, Run For Your Life and Women’s Running Australia, but my ongoing passion has always been and will always be, capturing special moments of new life,  love and your beautiful family. I truly feel blessed to be able to do what I do and that so many have allowed me into their lives to capture their most precious moments of their and their children’s lives.

I have a 4 year old son, Alex, who is the joy and inspiration in my life, although not always the most willing of models (I think it’s a photographer’s curse actually).

My natural light studio is located in the central Gold Coast suburb of Southport and is beautifully set up with an extensive collection of props and accessories (some would say I have a MILD prop addiction – I say there needs to be a Props Anonymous support group! Sign me up!)

Please have a  browse through my galleries and I  would be honored to be invited to get to know you and your family and help you create memories that will last a lifetime.
