Thanks Brad for another amazing photo shoot.

Thanks for looking after us and helping us capture precious moments in time.

We had an amazing session with Brad at Mt Macedon. My children adores him! He was very patient and very funny as what my children said. From the photo session to viewing, Brad was superb! And Suzanne, she was very accommodating and organise. All photos are lovely and our family and friends love it. Will definitely make more memories with them.

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! ❤️
