Hey, Mum! We hear you...

This is why you've just found THE perfect family photographer.




– You’re a busy mum that is worried if the kids will behave on the day.
– You have family members that hate being photographed (or even yourself!).
– You are worried how you will look…
– You desire to capture natural candid moments and the in-between moments, the cheeky grins, the belly laughs, the hugs, the playful side.
– You love the idea of family portraits but you may feel overwhelmed with what to wear or when/how to organise everyone…

– You crave beautiful legacy wall portraits of your family to decorate the walls. Photographs that capture everyones true personality and their special bonds…

Well you don’t need us or anyone else to remind you how fast your babies are growing up….

We get it, we are mums too!   You’ve come to the right place *sigh*


Because family portraits are not about you (stay with us)… they’re about the legacy of your family and capturing this special moment in time. For your loved ones to cherish – Forever.


We are big kids at heart so we love playing with people of all ages and getting even the most camera-shy people to relax, have fun and we capture genuine emotion and the love everyone has for one another. With our guidance everyone will look and feels their best in a way that truly represents their unique personalities. Your family will have the best experience with us because this is not something that you do everyday (but we do) and it’s up to us to make you and your family look and feel amazing and remember how much fun you had together on the day!


Did you know research shows children who grow up in a home with family portraits have higher self-esteem? Just think how amazing they will feel (and you) when they get home after a tough day and see beautlful portraits hanging on the walls and are reminded of what is truely important in life – Family. Love. Their worth and how special they are to be in your awesome family.


We are a boutique full service studio ensuring a truely personalised photographic experience for your family.  We’ll guide you every step of the way from the planning appointment to bring your ideas to life, to guidance direction on the day (we’ve got your best angles covered while making it look and feel natural) and we’ll even help you design gorgeous artwork to decorate your home. Your family legacy portraits deserve to be shared and displayed proudly in the home so although you get the digital images, we are not simply a ‘shoot and burn’ as that is a disservice to the client. We love creating artwork that will outlive you. How cool is that!?

Busy kids means a fast shoot. You need an awesome photographer who is fun! Every parent must use Stephanie Reiter from Total Capture. The shots taken were amazing and the end result was absolute magic. We will be coming back for more and more and more!”

Thank you Stephanie for being able to capture some beautiful moments with our family for my sisters 50th Birthday. Your ease and grace made everyone feel so relaxed, even family members who normally wouldn’t participate did so with no fuss. My sister was so emotional when she saw the results, it really made her day. We will highly recommend you to family and friends. Love your work

Gail Glastinbury

Our family absolutely adored having our photography session with Total Capture. Their services are very professional yet make you feel like you are part of the family. I was also very grateful that they could capture a few professional moments amongst the joy and excitement of the day. I would recommend Total Capture to any professional or young family.

Daniella Hogarth

“Had our first professional family photography session with Steph from Total capture photography. I was rather nervous and very stressed about ensuring my family was prepared for the shoot. I just wanted it all to be perfect!! Steph helped me by ensuring the shirts for the shoot were steamed and crease free and even gave my daughter’s long beautiful hair a extra brush to ensure she looked gorgeous for the shoot. Steph was very polite and helpful which helped ease my nerves, and made our 2 children feel very much at home and comfortable in her company. And of course much more relaxed with getting their picture taken. The session was a blast and the sneak peak of the photos Steph showed us was absolutely incredible… I can’t wait to see the final product once it’s ready.. can’t recommend Steph enough she was absolutely Brilliant!!”

Frequently asked


Our professionally printed products comes with a 75 year warranty. That includes accidental damage, replaced free of charge, no questions asked (How amazing is that!)


Our printers are calibrated professionally to ensure the correct skin tone and colour reproduction. This is the first thing you will notice if you take your digital images and print them cheaply yourself. Not only that, the quality of the materials used to print on come with a lifetime guarantee when you print with us.

Do we give the digitals?

Yes. Your printed photos come with the digital images for safe keeping and you own the copyright and are able to print, share and publish the photographs. You are given a rose-gold USB with the high resolution professionally edited images and they are yours to share to your hearts content. We are not a shoot and burn, we are a full service professional photographic studio and part of that full service is guiding clients to printing the artwork. Because your professional photographs deserve more than to live on a USB.
