About Me

Hi and welcome! Thanks for stopping by! This is me! I’m a passionate Gold Coast photographer, offering your family timeless newborn, maternity, family and children’s portrait photography sessions.

I fell in love with photography at a young age. From the moment I took possession of my first camera I set about taking images that captured special moments to me. To preserve that memory, capture my loved ones, special events, places and people that evoked emotions for me.

Gold Coast Photographer Leanne Handreck PhotographyCapturing those special moments in your lives that you will look back on and cherish forever, is my goal. I aim to capture your personalities, the raw emotions, the love and laughter that comes out during our sessions, which truly represent who you are.

I have worked in the Arts and Publishing industry for 17+ years at the National Gallery of Australia and editing national sporting magazines. But my passion has always been and will always be, photography.  I feel truly blessed and honoured that so many have allowed me into their lives to capture their most precious, intimate, personal moments.

You see me here with my son, who is the joy and inspiration in my life. Although not always the most willing of models (a photographer’s curse I think), I continue to persist every day to capture him growing up.

My studio is located in Southport on the beautiful sunny Gold Coast. It is nice and cozy & set up with an extensive (some would say excessive) collection of props and accessories to used in your sessions.

Please have a browse through my portfolios and find me on Facebook 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.
