We had such a wonderful experience from Maple Gallery! Brad was our photographer, he was so patient, calm and professional. A true baby whisperer.  My husband and I were just astonished at how experienced he was at settling our baby for the photos. The photos just spoke for themselves. He captured our son exactly how we envisioned, and in his natural, quirky poses that we will keep and cherish forever. Suze was wonderful, very warm and friendly. She organised and met our wishes- touching base with us about our gorgeous album, when it was sent and reaching out to us ensuring we received it alright. Highly recommend Maple Gallery to your newborn shoot.

We are thrilled with the beautiful pictures Maple Gallery captured and framed for us. We organised a photoshoot for our extended family, so there was a variety of different shots we wanted of the grandparents, individual families, couples, cousins, siblings and, of course, of all of us together – no mean feat to pull off.

Suze was extremely understanding and helpful in organising the date and time for the shoot, because as you can imagine with a group of 16, it was quite difficult! 

We were also blown away by Brad during the shoot. He was so calm and did a great job catering to our needs, grabbing great shots as we wrangled crying toddlers, overtired little ones and the odd dog thrown in here and there! We are so grateful for his professionalism and ability to put together, and edit so seamlessly, such a gorgeous collection of photos that it was really hard to choose when it came to picking our favourites. 

We highly recommend Maple Gallery Photography if you are looking to get stunning family photos which will be treasured centrepieces in your home for years to come.
Thanks Suze and Brad!

MUM TO baby Harley - 2.5 weeks

We had the best experience with Brad and Suze when organising our family/newborn photos.

Suze was quick to respond to emails and enquires and Brad was so professional and understanding of our vision. We loved watching Brad handle our newborn, it was so relaxing and comfortable that we could have fallen asleep and known our baby was in safe hands.

We are so happy with our images and would highly recommend Maple Gallery Photography for your images.

Brad & Suze were very accommodating, professional, and easy to work with. We have never had professional photos before so didn’t really know what to expect, but it was apparent very quickly that these guys are the best in the biz!
The whole process was easy and enjoyable, and we now have some beautiful, high quality family photos that leave us smiling every time we look at them.

We absolutely love our newborn photos from Maple Gallery. Suze was great in keeping in contact before our session in relation to baby’s birth date and changed the date as needed. Brad was incredible throughout the shoot and managed to get the most perfect shots for us. We cannot recommend highly enough. Thankyou for capturing our baby boy in his first few weeks of life, photos we will cherish for a life time ☺️

Amazing family photography! Look no further!
We have come back 3 times now for photo sets due to the beautiful pictures taken and then displayed in high quality albums and framed products. The photo shoot video makes me happy tear up every time, it is all worth the time to capture these everlasting memories.

Suzanne is a delight to chat to about organising them and listening to our intentions for the photos and Brad is extremely professional and empathetic taking the pictures, especially with our toddler who certainly ran the day!

They really get the best out of everyone with family love and beaming happy faces portrayed every time. Both kids newborn pictures were also taken with them as well as family photos with their Grandparents. Special timeless photos.
Highly recommend Maple Gallery’s professional photography services!

Brad and Suzanne were absolutely wonderful to work with. Brad was extremely professional, welcoming and patient as he tackled my newborn and her fussiness to capture the perfect photo. Not only were we ecstatic with the end result, we also learned some great settling techniques from Brad! The studio atmosphere is calm and relaxing! Thank you for everything.

Maple Gallery provided us with the most friendly and professional service for our newborn Photoshoot. The photos of our first baby girl turned out so beautiful, we can’t stop showing them to family and friends! Brad did such a great job catering to the style of photos we wanted and also did an amazing job at soothing our little girl when she wasn’t behaving the best through the shoot. Thank you Brad and Suze for our bub’s photos for us to always treasure as new parents 😊

Just received our album and prints and we’re in love 🥰 We did a shoot back in 2018 with our first son so it was a no brainer that we returned once we had our second son! Brad is an amazing photographer, easy to work with and a wiz with babies and children! And dealing with Suzanne is always a pleasure. Thank you so much for our beautiful family images! No doubt we will be back, whether it’s photos as our children grow up or the possible addition of a number 3 😉 xxx

mum to baby Elena - 3 weeks

We had a wonderful experience with Brad for our newborn photo shoots. We’ve had both of our daughters photographed as newborns and the results were stunning. I was very impressed with how Brad handled our unruly 2 year old during our younger daughters photos too – with the patience and kindness of a saint, ensuring she felt comfortable and included and getting some beautiful photos in the process. Thanks so much! We will be back for family photos in the future!

Can’t speak highly enough of our experience. So calm and easy on the day for newborn photos and delighted that Maple was able to include a sibling and dog too. We absolutely love the photos we got back – it was hard to narrow it down to our favourites. Thank you so much!

Kristen Davidson

mum to ballerina - Sienna 3 years

Had such an amazing and FUN experience with my 3 year old during her ballerina photo session. Suzanne was very informative as to how the photo session would run and just an absolute delight to deal with. The photo session with Brad was just fun, fun, fun… I’m not too sure who had more fun. My daughter or me! Brad was calm, patient and very nurturing with my daughter. What Brad was able to captured behind the lens is nothing less than professional photography at its best. I honestly can’t thank Suzanne and Brad enough.

autumn family session - gisborne

We just snuck in out autumn session while the leaves were still in abundance, Brad was very knowledgeable on the best location for the photos and we were so happy with the results. My girls can be a bit shy which you would never know from the photos as Brad was very personable and made them feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend Maple Gallery. I look forward to updating our photos every few years and wouldn’t second guess where I would be going in the future 🙂

I was so excited to have an autumn session with Maple Gallery at Mt Macedon! Brad was so patient with my girls (and me) being the coldest day of the year! His calming energy makes you feel at ease quickly. When going for our review of photos we really valued his feedback and also approach when I wanted something not stock standard. Him and his wife Suzanne were super accommodating and my end product is amazing! ❤️

Love the photos Brad took of our little girl. It took a little while with her cranky on the day but Brad was able to calm her and get her into the cutest positions for the shots. Would highly recommend Brad for newborn photographs.

Thanks Brad for another amazing photo shoot. You have been looking after us for almost 10 years now, from baby whisperer to co-ordinating three super active young kids, you always show amazing patience, and deliver exceptional results.

We are so thrilled with our family photos Brad captured in our beautiful surroundings of the Macedon Ranges. Thank you again guys for an amazing job. An investment that will be forever cherished.

Bianca Drake

mum to baby rosie - 3 months

I cannot say enough about how amazing Brad and Suzanne are from Maple Gallery. Our original newborn session was rescheduled due to Covid lockdown, however they were responsive throughout the time and rescheduled our family shoot as soon as restrictions eased. The studio is warm and inviting and Brad is absolutely amazing at what he does. Both my children (8 and 3 months) were captured beautiful and Brad took into account exactly what kind of style we were after. The results are so beautiful and I am so incredibly happy. It is such a lovely keepsake to look back on. Brad thoroughly goes through each and every photo (we had 70) and helps you pick the ones you like best. He also explains the many package items available. Thank you so much to Maple Gallery for your professional, kind, and warm attitudes and amazing work. Cannot thank you enough!

mum to baby jeronimo - 3 months

We had beautiful shots of our son taken at three months old, as he was born during covid lockdown and we couldn’t get newborn shots done. These turned out even better! Very beautiful and well located studio and gorgeous photos. Plus the satisfaction of helping the Stillborn Foundation with part of the fees.

Brad was fantastic with our little one and we are so impressed with the final images. They capture moments, character, relationships and detail. Thank you Brad and Suzanne!


Marnie Barczak

mum to baby poppy - 2 weeks

I heard wonderful things about a newborn photography session my friend had at Maple Gallery and decided to book in with my first baby for a shoot when she was just 15 days old. The studio in Ascot Vale is very comfortable and professional and Brad is the ultimate baby whisperer! I was so impressed with his friendly nature, ability to handle my baby with absolute confidence and ease to achieve such beautiful shots which we received in lightning fast time as an app to share with family and friends while waiting for prints. His experience in this field is amazing and I would highly recommend booking a session if you have ever thought about it.


Samantha Taleni

Beautiful photos both Brad and Suzzane got out of their ways to fit me in such short notice since I didn’t know you have to book while pregnant pleasant experience highly recommended

Maple Gallery were a great studio for newborn pictures, Brad the photographer new exactly how to get the best shots from my baby and was very professional considering the frustrations of working with a new born.

Warm relaxed environment. Brad was great getting my 7 week old to relax and settle for her photos. Beautiful photos of my daughter that everyone has loved and commented on when they’ve seen them.

Yvonne W.

We loved our photo shoot with Brad. He was super patient with our girls and very relaxed with a comfortable and calm environment. It made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. Even though our newborn shoots were 2 years apart the quality and consistency were excellent and our pictures look like they could have been done at the same time. Our large pictures look like works of art and we are so impressed with how the pics turned out. Thank you brad and the Maple gallery team.

Brad and his team are professional, friendly and easy to deal with. My 18 day old and almost 3 year old son were made comfortable. Brad has a remarkable talent for capturing that perfect picture. His patience and style with newborns in posing and keeping them content is unparalleled. I couldn’t be happier with our photos, and recommend Brad to anyone wanting to capture precious moments of their kids/family on film. Thanks Brad.

Melissa B.

newborn session

We are absolutely thrilled with our photos. Brad is fantastic with children and captured our newborn and toddler in a way that exceeded our expectations. The price was very similar to other photographers and worth every cent! Brad is incredibly patient – a must if you are working with a lively toddler, a newborn and two exhausted and unphotogenic parents!

Elle P.

newborn session

We are so happy with the images of our son, Joshua. The photos are natural and capture his chirpy little personally. Brad was so patient whilst we took time to settle Josh. He even wrapped him in a warm towel to help him go to sleep! Lovely guy, beautiful studio, stunning photos to capture our memories. I highly recommend Maple Gallery.

Brad showed profesionalism & patience especially with my newborn & 2 other kids under 3! He was friendly & made us feel very relaxed & comfortable. I was interested in family shots of my kids with their new sister but I was slightly disappointed that the main focus was mainly on my newborn. With that being said, the pictures that were taken were lovely & we received many compliments from our family & friends. Loved the app with the pics! A great little addition.
