    Michael is an absolute professional and so great with kids. He recently did our Son’s new born photo shoot with 2 older siblings and made the whole experience an absolute delight. He had our (very fussy) son asleep in no time, while we got comfy on the couch and picked out a couple of outfits for the session. I was so amazed at how quickly he calmed our bubs down and put him to sleep for the whole shoot. This made the whole thing easy for us. I would highly recommend Michael for any photo shoot, especially with either a new born or kids. Awesome photographer and very good at what he does. Thank you so much.

    We have had both of our newborn shoots done with Michael and wouldn’t go anywhere else. He had such a kind, soothing, gentle approach with both of our babies and was able to capture such beautiful images.

He was more than happy to help, responded quickly and had the edited print back to me within hours. He is very accommodating and simply the best at what he does. Thank you Michael!

    Michael was amazing with our 3 Month old Evie. He was confident and calm on changing her and positioning her tiny baby body. Made us so welcome and comfortable even happily invited our precious pooch Coco inside for a photo. Overall as my first even photography experience I couldn’t have chosen a better professional. Would go back for our annual family photos because now I know why he is recommended as the best in Hobart. Also made me cry of happiness at the viewing appointment. So beautifully composed I couldn’t contain my tears.

  • Mikayla parr

    My little family had our pictures done by Michael and we couldn’t be any happier with the outcome. They’re beautiful photos that we will cherish for a lifetime.

    Truely an amazing experience with Michael Okeefe Photography. Michael was super calm with all 4 of my children which resulted in amazing photos. I couldn’t recommend someone better.

The communication from Micheal in the lead up to the photo shoot day, to the viewing day & pick up I cannot fault. Michael is there every step of the way.

    Have now had both our kids photographed by michael as newborns between 2016 & 2021 and both times have been fantastic experiences with amazing results that our family will treasure forever. When they are grown and gone you won’t even remember the cost but you’ll always have these beautiful pictures that you won’t ever regret getting.

  • Lisa Medhurst

    Michael done my sons newborn shoot and family portraits and I couldn’t fault him at all. He is caring, calm, passionate, and just amazing at how he captures everyone’s special moments. I would highly recommend Michael to everyone I know. Amazing work and gorgeous photos. 10/10 from my little family. I’ve booked my now 10month old little man back in with Michael to do a sitter shoot. Can not wait to see him work his magic again.

  • Jade

    we had our sons newborn photos done with Michael and were stoked with the new turn out of our beautiful photos!! michael was amazing with our newborn and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. highly recommend him for any photos and will definitely be going back in the future!

  • Katie Bowden

    We were incredibly happy with our newborn photo shoot that Michael did for our little Theodore. We were very nervous that Theodore might not cooperate or would cry the whole time! As soon as we arrived, Michael put us at ease and did all the work. We sat back on the couch whilst he did his magic. He made us feel so comfortable and he was able to get Theodore to sleep in minutes (we almost wanted to take him home). He was very accomodating and allowed us to select different outfits/props that suited our little man’s personality. When reviewing photos, we had so many to choose from. We were so happy with the end result and could not recommend Michael enough.

  • Renée & Brett Mitchell

    Michael was so patient when our baby was unsettled, settled her himself, even fed the bottle. My toddler was a bit tired and unsure and got a bit upset and Michael made conversation with her a lot and she came around and we got some beautiful family shots. Michael has a gentle, kind and calm nature that really shines through and makes all the difference. Our photographs were beyond amazing and will be treasured for years to come.

  • Tonya

    I would recommend Michael O’Keefe to everyone wanting family or new born photos! He is just amazing how nice and kind and professional he is! And it still amazes me how he keeps babys so calm for every photo! There was never a awkward moment Michael is very easy to get along with and kept up the conversation. He will tell you every step as he took photos. I would 100% recommend Michael O’Keefe 🙂

  • Mel Arnol

    I had booked for my newborn photos in April but due to COVID-19 it was postponed. Michael kept in touch with me with updates to when he was planning to reopen, which made me feel at ease with the new restrictions . Once I was booked it, the moment I walked in the door, it felt like home. He treated my son with such respect and kindness. The way he handled my son with such care placing him in certain positions for photos was amazing. The hardest part was choosing which photos to choose as they were all just amazing. Was a very tough choice but Michael was there to help guide me. I am absolutely stoked with the photos, they turned out perfect. I am so grateful to have Michael capture them for me. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who is looking to have professional photos taken.

  • Christie Smith

    Cant reccomend Michael O’Keeffe high enough. We have used him a few time’s now and will use him again for sure. He was so great with our cranky newborn and captured moments that will last forever. We have been to his studio and have also had a location shoot. Both absolutely amazing.

  • Katherine Dewhurst

    I honestly couldn’t recommend Michael Okeefe High enough We have had Michael capture a few special moments from a maternity shoot and then birth of our three beautiful children. his work is absolutely amazing. Our photos are just perfect. Michael is so easy to get along with and was really good with our children. No shoot is too hard from crying babies to sleeping the next he really is a pure talent and his work shows this as it’s beyond excellent. If your looking for a newborn or maternity photographer then I’d highly recommend Michael. Thank you again Michael for capturing our special moments

    We have been to have photos taken by Michael in 3 different occasions which should be all the evidence you need to show that he is extremely highly recommended. Michael is highly professional, as well as being down to earth and he creates the most exceptional memories that you could ever create. His creations are beyond perfect and they are always ready to collect in such a quick timeframe. Thank you Michael for our beautiful memories – we cannot thank you enough. They will be cherished forever!

    My little family went to see Michael for my sons newborn photoshoot and family portraits, this was the first time I’d ever had any professional photos taken. Michael was amazing so calm and comforting towards my newborn and my 3 year old son. Our photos were amazing I was so pleased and happy. Would highly recommend Michael everyday of the week to everyone I know.

  • Vanessa Lancaster

    How do you describe an amazing experience and photographer just that it was amazing and our photos are just beautiful! Michael captured the best photos of a beautiful baby boy and what I would call the perfect family photo since my husband and I aren’t really too keen on having photos done! Michael was very relaxed and friendly made us feel very comfortable also he was incredible with our son who isn’t too keen on anyone else but his mum!

  • Chantelle Lovell

    We went to Michael for our family photos after having our rainbow/pot of gold baby Jack who was born in Dec 19, we had our photos taken in January, Michael was amazing with Jack and made our experience wonderful we all felt very at ease with his directions, we had a hard time choosing photos because they were all so wonderful, I highly recommend Michael to anyone that would love beautiful photos of their family.

    We cannot recommend Michael enough! We had Michael photograph a newborn session for our son Lucas. He was nothing but professional, warm and made us feel comfortable throughout the session; not to mention he was amazing with Lucas and settling him between shots and keeping him relaxed. Our photos are amazing and we could not ask for more.

  • sara13miller

We are looking forwards to our maternity shoot this month. I’m so glad we had chosen him. There is no reason to look anywhere else Micheal is the best!!

  • emmamiajamie

    I cannot recommend Michael Okeefe photography more- his professionalism towards his photographs and how he is so warm and welcoming making you feel at ease. We had my daughter’s photos done and he was brilliant; and we are going back again for another new born shoot with this bub when he is born!!! Highly recommend!! Worth the money and the quality you get in return is second to none.
