There’s nothing I love more than photographing families in Paris and especially with stunning backdrops like the Louvre & Palais Royale. Had anyone told me ten years ago that I would be an international portrait photographer living in Australia and offering photography sessions in Paris (and beyond) several times a year I would have never dreamed it possible. And yet here I am ‘living the dream’ capturing the beauty of families in my beloved soul city Paris.

It’s always a treat to meet children and allow their little personalities to come through in their portraits. I’m forever grateful to those families who book me for photo sessions. You really don’t know how much it means to me to travel back to France once again capturing memories that last a lifetime. And I’ve had such lovely feedback from families who have booked family photo shoots who are thrilled with the images. Your kind words are always touching and ever so appreciated.

Jennifer, thank you so much for inviting me to take your family photos. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and your beautiful family and can’t wait to be back in Paris again for Fall Photo Sessions this September.103_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY111_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY102_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY105_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY113_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY101_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY108_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHY112_PARIS_FAMILY_CHILD_SYDNEY_PHOTOGRAPHER_SARAH_GARDAN_PHOTOGRAPHYSarah Gardan Photography will be offering photo sessions in Paris, London and Dubai in September, October and November as well as Australia throughout 2016.

It’s always a treat to photograph families I know from my kids’ school here in Sydney and especially in a place that also happens to be pretty sentimental to me. Many moments I’ve spent in this very park at Rushcutters Bay with my kiddies over the years. It’s lovely as it’s right beside Sydney Harbour and is a beautiful backdrop for photos. Not to mention a great place to take the kiddies in summer and stunning autumn days which are ahead of us here in Sydney.

It was a lovely treat to photograph Lucinda, her hubby and the kids on gorgeous summer’s morning in Sydney. The day was spectacular and everyone was in great spirits (which is always a huge bonus for us photographers).

Lucinda and Paddy I hope these photos bring back many memories of the morning we spent together and the fun family moments you have shared in Rushcutters Bay over the years. And hopefully your family in far away places enjoys them too.

I recently had the opportunity to go to Bali and photograph this beautiful family who moved from Bondi last year to embark on a new adventure in tropical paradise. It was my first time to Bali and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Amazing scenery, food, weather, great company and a few good cocktails in there too. What a fabulous destination !

The green rice fields were a feast for my eyes and they certainly made a stunning back drop to the family photographs. After all who doesn’t love palm trees in family portraits and it was definitely a change to my usual sessions in Sydney, Paris, London, Singapore or Dubai.

Kendall & Dave, it was a complete treat to get an insight into your Balinese life and I’m very much looking forward to Bali Photography Sessions again sometime soon.

One of the things I love about Paris is how beautiful the flowers are in the different seasons and of course how much importance is placed upon them. So I was thrilled to meet with Nicole and her gorgeous family  recently for some family photos at the stunning Hotel de Sens in Paris.

It was a perfect autumn day for photographs and we started early so there weren’t too many people around. Everyone looked gorgeous (great styling as always Nicole) and I have to say the flowers were sublime. I was in photographer’s bliss.

Nicole, I was so happy to see you all again and especially for the opportunity to take your family photos. You always make my job super easy and I can’t wait to share the rest of the images with you really soon.

I recently had a photography session with a gorgeous mother & daughter duo who were on vacation from the USA having a girls’ trip to Paris. We met one gorgeous autumn morning right near the Eiffel Tower for a photo shoot with a Paris flavour.

I love meeting people who are travelling to France and I felt an instant connection with Karen and her beautiful daughter Kate. And it was extremely touching to see how close the two of them were and the very special bond they share. I can’t imagine anything more wonderful than bringing your daughter to Paris for the first time. We had a great time chatting and taking photos and even stopped for a hot chocolate along the way.

Karen, I hope you like the sneak peek and that these images bring some memories of Kate’s first trip to Paris. Thanks so much for asking me to capture you both and I very much hope our paths cross again in the future.
