Family Photography Brisbane

Elegant, Timeless Photography you'll be proud to display.

Elegant, Timeless Family Portraits in Bulimba, South Brisbane.


During your family photography session we will capture images of each family member, plus groups, all together, the children, parents as a couple and any other combination that you wish to have. Yes, you are also welcome to bring your pooch. We will take our time to ensure that you are all comfortable and relaxed to achieve the very best results. Due to our studio setup and our shooting style, we do not photograph children under the age of 5 years.

What is stopping you from documenting your family?

Are you wanting to drop a little weight? Too nervous? Worried about the kids playing ball? Think you are not photogenic? Let me tell you that EVERYONE feels that way, BUT, you need to know that we are very good at dealing with these concerns. Don’t waste time waiting for the perfect time. It will never arrive. Just do it! Let’s work together to create something wonderful for you and your family. We can arrange your hair and makeup so that you feel FABULOUS and you will forget all of your insecurities.

We offer both print and digital collections with printed books and wall art as additional options. You have the use of all of our props, sets, wardrobe & accessories for your session and we view the images and make selections immediately after the session, so there is no need to make time to come back for a viewing.

Kate bought her family in for a Steampunk Experience.

Kate wanted family photos with her adult children but they were not keen on the traditional photos that you see everywhere. When she showed them our steampunk images they all said YES! They loved the idea of family photos that were completely different and now have stunning photos hanging in the family home.

Meet Dean & Karen

014 alt 1
Karen will be your personal assistant & hostess and will make sure everything runs to smoothly for you.
Dean is your talented photographer, adviser & image retoucher.
Sammie is your emotional support & will relax you as she snores away in the corner of the studio.

We are full time photographers located in beautiful Bulimba, inner south Brisbane, QLD. We have been producing elegant and tasteful portraits since 2009, and we absolutely love what we do. Our mission is to help all women to find their confidence and to learn to love their curves and discover just how beautiful they truly are. 

Our focus in every session is to get you relaxed and enjoying your session for the very best results possible. Our goal is to craft images that will make you feel absolutely AMAZING. You will be guided every step of the way in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere.

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a massive smile (and the odd happy tear), when a client sees their photos for the first time and to be part of a process that allows them to feel more positive, empowered & confident.

Lovely to work with and some good chat and banter.

Had an amazing experience!

Had an amazing experience with Dean Agar Photography. Karen & Dean helped us get some beautiful photos that will be treasured in the future.

Love their steampunk & CGI themes, especially if you have a teenager who doesn't want to smile for photos. Book again for more of the Family to be done.

My 3 girls loved every moment of their Steampunk experience!

Thank you so much for today, my 3 girls loved every moment of their Steampunk session. Dean and Karen it was wonderful to watch such a professional team with attention to the smallest of details. Honestly felt like I knew you both for years and we weren’t there for a photo shoot but rather friends meeting to eat cheese and share some wine.
Can not wait to see the magic you two create.
