Alla Darkina


My name is Alla! I am a children, family, maternity and newborn portrait photographer based in Stanhope Gardens, Sydney

Being a mother of two kids, I understand the importance of keeping the memory of priceless moments of your family.  The time passes so quickly! So I help capturing memories for families in the best way – doing beautiful pictures full of light and happiness! 

Family photography can help you save all important moments such as pregnancy, newborn period, first birthday party and many more...

Photography sessions are held on location or at your home using natural available light. In my sessions I make lifestyle photos as well as posed family and individual portraits images. 

The newborn photography session is preferable to be held in my home studio, but I can visit your place as well. I just want to be sure that there is enough space and natural light there.

Feel free to browse my website to learn more about my style of photography, prices and conditions.  Contact me through the contact form to find out more.

Your family & newborn photographer, Alla Darkina!

Hope to see you soon.

Alla did a beautiful Christmas mini shoot of our son. She was resonably priced, so lovely & patient with our cheeky child, was friendly and professional & the photos were just gorgeous. She was also fast with having them ready, so I was able to have Christmas cards made up & sent, even though it was already well into December!

Dear Alla! Thank you for the wonderful photo shoot you did for us! You made our whole family feel so relaxed and we had so much fun while we were in the middle of the shoot. It wasn’t stuffy or super planned, but at the same time I could tell you knew exactly what you wanted and you put our whole family at ease. I feel like we were making a memory in the experience, not just the photos we would have for years to come. We will treasure these photos forever! Thank you again!

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience on our photo shoot with Alla. Her warm personality put our 5 year old daughter at ease quickly- and it really comes through in the photos. Alla is very professional and has a great eye, the photographs turned out wonderfully and I can't recommend her enough.

It was just a fantastic way to start our Christmas time! Had the best time during the photo session and the photos turned out just amazing! Couldn't believe how fast the photos were ready! My girls were enjoying to work with the photographer who is so natural and professional. Very highly recommended! Thank you,Alla!

Dear Alla, we want to thank you for the fantastic job you did during our spontaneous beach photo shoot in the rain! We have had so many compliments on our photos and nobody believes it was a grey gloomy day. You are so much fun to work with. Our little daughter absolutely loved it. Thank you for the great photos and for being so flexible in scheduling our photo shoot. We look forward to seeing you again!

Nastya B. Said

A big thank you to Alla for her patience and proactive attitude when it came to photographing me and my 2 years old daughter who refused to be photographed on the day. Alla has an amazing talent of capturing the real life moments - the photos came out full of life, energy and happiness. I've had the most comments from my friends and family when they saw the photos asking who took them and how awesome those were. We will definitely be back for more.

Nastya & Alexey Said

Dear Alla thank you very much for the professional photos of our family! You are great and cheerful photographer, working with you was full of fun and pleasure! I can't explain how we love your work, your photos are just stunning! Alla easily finds contact with both children and adults! We look forward to the next photo shoot!

I’ve recently had a photo session with Alla. I have 2 active and cheeky boys, who didn’t want to sit quiet at all. At these moments I thought: it will be probably a big job for Alla to deal with us. But her experience of working with families and kids impressed me!When we got the full set of photos it was unbelievable! My boys are so beautiful and so cute! And so different on each photo! And all our family! And myself )))

I enjoyed a lot Alla’s way of working with the afternoon sunlight and autumn leaves. That’s exactly what I was dreaming
