Having your family photographed is a celebration of you—your story, the love you share and your ‘right now’.
Jeremy Byrnes and Katie Kolenberg (the owners and principal photographers at Heartstory, est. 2009) are award winning family portrait specialists and two of the most experienced family photographers in the region.
The Heartstory team shoots on location around Canberra, and in their beautiful Belconnen studio. They are known for how they connect with children and babies, their fun approach to families, their use of the natural environment and our creative vision. They provide personal, customised service and unique heirloom products, for every taste and budget.

Please remember that this product is a starter package. You will need to spend additional funds to buy the prints and products of your choice.
We want you to feel safe and looked after during your experience with us, therefore we take full liability for the creation of your portrait collection. No decisions, commitment or payment is required from you until your purchasing appointment. And, if you don’t love your photos, you don’t have to buy any! There is no pressure; our ordering experience is designed to be personal and fun. Your satisfaction is our priority.
We believe that professional portraits deserve pride of place in your home, so we have spent many years perfecting our product range to suit modern tastes, lifestyles and budgets. You can choose from prints, wall art, and albums, and digital files can be included in your order too!
Most families invest $800 – $3000 on their portrait collection. Payment plans are available.
You can get more information via our pricing and products page.
We photograph all over Canberra (we have different favourite locations in different seasons), taking advantage of our beautiful city and it’s environmental features. Sessions are available morning and afternoon/evening on most weekends and some weekdays. We are usually booked out 1-2 months in advance.
Studio sessions are available on weekdays and weekends at times that suit your little ones routines. We recommend the studio for newborns and babies under one or for families with cuddly children under 16. We use natural light only, and our studio space is nature inspired, light and airy and a bit boho. We encourage relaxed clothing, like our approach!
At home and rural sessions have limited availability due to the additional travel time. But we LOVE them! Rural sessions can include your farm animals and all your favourite scenery. At home sessions are personal, intimate and unique.
We care a lot about emotion, personality and capturing you ‘in the moment’. We direct you during your session, but we don’t really ‘pose’ you. We want you to look real! We also capture in between moments, environmental scenes and a lot of candid fun. We always take our cues from the smallest people in the family, and we work quite quickly to create a rich and diverse collection of images for you to choose from.
Most families say ‘I knew they’d be good, but I didn’t think they’d be this good.’
