Hi! We’re Nick and Lindsey Stewart and we’re so happy you've stopped by! We’re based in Sydney, NSW, and we love being photographers, meeting new people and exploring our beautiful city.
We met 15 years ago in Santorini, Greece while backpacking around Europe, and have always felt that fate brought us together. We had so much fun living-working-travelling in those early days, and our relationship has now grown into a full and happy life together as a married couple and as parents.
So here’s the big question – why should you choose us to photograph your family? First and foremost, we are parents ourselves! We have three young children, so we know that all kids are different; some can take a little longer to warm up in front of the camera, while others (like our oldest daughter, Olive), love being front and centre with big beaming smiles!
We have been in business since 2009, so we have plenty of experience photographing families of all shapes and sizes. We love getting to meet new people and creating beautiful artwork for them.
We know how important it is to capture all of these fleeting moments while our kids are little (or not so little!), and how seldom there is a photo of all of you together. We aim to capture all of the fun, the relationships, and those unique interactions that put together the story of your family. Most of all we can offer beautiful, timeless images and products that you will treasure for life.
We’d love to have a chat with you, so give us a call on 0434 934 766 or complete our contact form to get in touch.
Sometimes others say it best! Here’s what some of our clients have to say about their photography session experience with Skipping Stone:

No matter what you're looking for we've got you covered. Whether it's enough frames to decorate your entire house, albums to send to grandparents, or a few printed photos just for you, we've got it all.
Our session fees are $190 - this covers the session itself and you can then select any products or packages of your choice. There is no minimum spend, so while we hope this would never happen, if you decided you didn't like a single image from your session you wouldn't be committed to buying anything. You also get to see an extensive preview gallery to help you decide exactly what you'd like to purchase after your session. You don't need to decide what you'd like to purchase until after you've seen your preview gallery.
We offer an extensive range of products and packages, with prints starting from $50 and high resolution digital sets starting from $490. For full details please email us for our pricing brochure.
Yes, we offer digital files in sets of 5, 10, or your full set of images. You can expect at least 40 photos should you choose your full set. Remember, you don't need to commit to any purchase until after you've seen your preview gallery, so you can decide on whichever set or package is best for you after you've already seen a preview of your images.
Yes, we edit every single image you receive. That doesn't mean we throw a bunch of photoshop tools at your photo in the hopes they will turn them into a masterpiece. Most of our planning (composition, lighting, aperture, distance etc) is done in camera. We use photoshop with a delicate hand, so it emphasises what couldn't quite be captured in camera. Our post production work is done very carefully, and we spend considerable time on every image we deliver to our clients. If you like the images in our galleries (Family | Newborn | Birthday), we guarantee you'll be pleased with the photos from your own session.
You're free to print your photos wherever you choose. However, we use specialist print labs, and offer archival papers to ensure your prints will last for generations. Wherever you choose to print your photos, we recommend sending them to a professional print lab to achieve the most pleasing results. Even if you don't choose to print through us, we'd be pleased to pass along the details of a few consumer print labs to ensure you'll get great results.
We're based in Forestville, on Sydney's Northern Beaches, but we travel all around Sydney for our sessions.
We hold our sessions all across Sydney. Sometimes they're inside, sometimes they're outdoors. We've found parks are great locations if you have toddlers or kids that love to run around and play; while sessions at home are great for newborns and young babies. It's entirely up to you where we hold your session, but we have a long list of favourite locations and we're very happy to provide some recommendations if you're not sure. Sometimes we shoot in huge parks like the Bicentennial Park, while other times at the local park at the end of the street.
We'll chat about location during the lead up to your session. We've been photographing families all across Sydney for six years, so we'll almost certainly have some nearby locations in mind just in case you're unsure.
We know you'll be keen to see your photos as soon as possible after your shoot - we would be too! We'll send a preview shortly after your session to give you a taste of what is to come. We take great care with the post production of your images, so you can expect your full set of images within 3-4 weeks.
