We have had a number of sessions now with Michelle covering family portraits, maternity and our most recent new born and we could not recommend her highly enough. The final images are treasured memories, high quality digital files provided to us in both colour and black and white versions. It is what you expect when you engage a professional photographer but what makes Michelle stand out is her ability to work with all age groups, especially toddlers, her use of natural light and outdoor locations and her ability to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Michelle has always been on time and our sessions have never felt rushed. We intend on using Michelle over the coming years to capture our kids progression and update our family portraits just because we love what she does and how she goes about it.
Thanks so much again Michelle.

We were both so thrilled in our decision to select you as our wedding photographer.
It truly was an absolute pleasure having you with us throughout our special day and we cannot thank you enough.
From the moment you arrived you were relaxed, warm and extremely professional and this is exactly what we wanted!
We are so grateful for the lasting memory you have given us with such creative photos and an absolutely stunning album and even our families and friends are blown away by your fantastic work.
Your work is nothing short of amazing Michelle and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did in be lead up and on the day of the most memorable day of our lives.

We have felt so lucky and grateful that Michelle has captured our family moments as we have welcomed 3 gorgeous daughters. She has a relaxed approach which has ensured our babies & ourselves were calm & happy & this has resulted in fantastic photos. The images are treasured. We always suggest her whenever any of our friends or family are looking for a photographer as we know they will be as rapt with their photos as we are.
I first met Michelle when I had my first child (Jack’s) newborn photo shoot. I had her recommended to me by another local professional photographer and loved the look of her work online. From our initial phone conversation she put my ‘new mum’ anxious mind at ease, and organizing the session was a breeze.
Michelle came to our home bringing a beautiful selection of props for the shoot, and set everything up with no fuss. It just so happened that my little ‘angel’ decided to pick that exact day to come out of his newborn drowsy phase and NOT sleep. Hours went by while I tried everything in my limited arsenal to settle him! I was horrified, but Michelle was so patient, easy-going and understanding. And it seemed we really got to know each other in that time!!
Finally, Jack conceded defeat and Michelle managed to get some absolutely amazing shots in the time we had left. We couldn’t have been happier with the end result – she perfectly captured our little boy and his true nature. The package I received with the photos on disc, and thank-you cards we had ordered, was so beautifully presented. We had many comments from family and friends on the quality of her work.
After the qualities she demonstrated at Jack’s newborn shoot, I had to have Michelle do our wedding photography. The fact that she really listened to what we wanted, and her relaxed and easy manner helped make our wedding everything we hoped it would be.
Michelle worked really hard to ensure that she captured the real spirit of our day, and focused on what was important to us. She managed to keep us all to time across the various locations, and made so many wonderful shots happen, all whilst staying (at least outwardly) happy and calm! Again, we couldn’t have been happier with the photos. Such a huge variety, amazing quality, and near impossible to choose a favourite!
Less than a year later, Michelle also did the newborn shoot for our second son, Xavier. There was no question as to who we were going to get to do his photos!! I love that Jack and Xav’s photos are similar, yet different – it really showcases their different personalities and physical attributes. Thankfully, Xavier settled a little more quickly than his brother, and again Michelle provided us with some absolutely beautiful images and memories of this phase in our lives.
I really look forward to having Michelle do more family photos for us in the future. It has been a pleasure to have her document our most important moments, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a person and a professional.
I first saw Michelle close to 6 years ago for maternity photos with my first baby. Over that time I have had numerous photo shoots with her for newborn, family and further maternity photos. I cannot recommend Michelle highly enough. She takes amazing photos and is so patient to ensure she gets the ‘Perfect shot’. Nothing is too much trouble and is always accommodating and open to suggestions in order to fulfill what her client is after. I will continue to use Ginger house photography for many years to come in order to capture my growing family.

Michelle covered our Wedding day in March 2014 and provided us with the most amazing and beautiful photographs which captured the day beautifully. The pictures were amazing, not only from a professional point of view, but each special moment was captured really well. With a big wedding party Michelle not only connected and made us feel comfortable but also the entire wedding party including the 6 children involved. People still make comment on our wedding photos and we owe it all to Michelle. Would not have had anyone else capture our special day.

From start to finish our experience with Michelle was very positive. Only a professional would spend the time prior to a photo shoot, making the children feel completely at ease by just “Hanging” out with them. As a direct result of the time she invested into our family prior to any photos being taken she managed to capture each of our personalities perfectly! I think Michelle’s sensitivity in working with children comes from her obvious love and enthusiasm for creating beautiful family photography.
We continue to enjoy her work every day as it hangs in frames around our house.

We would like to thank and highly recommend Michelle from Gingerhouse photography for her professionalism, warmth, care and for taking the most perfect wedding photos. Michelle listened to what my husband and l wanted and made us feel comfortable as we were a bit camera shy to begin with. She helped us to decide on a location for our wedding photos as we weren’t sure what we wanted and help us relax in front of the camera. The most exciting part (besides our wedding day) was seeing all the beautiful photos Michelle had taken and receiving our wedding album.
It was a very special moment and my husband and I love pulling it out and reliving our special day all over again.
If you are after a photographer who is knowledgeable, passionate, friendly, and welling to go above and beyond, I would highly recommend Michelle from Gingerhouse Photography.
