Fun fun fun!! An experience I will never forget. My family, and our doggie, had a day where we really connected. Paul captured our fun moments perfectly. Thank you Paul for making this such a great experience. One can easily feel shy in front of a camera but you made it fun and easy.

Basketball Camp image

When we were looking for a photographer for our Basketball Holiday Camp, the decision was very easy. Paul has been a constant figure in our community, capturing smiles everywhere he goes. I knew his attention to detail was going to shine when I asked him to photograph our kids, flying down the court, laughing with friends, concentrating on drills and lost in thought. Never intrusive yet completely engaged. Paul was professional and really delivers. Thank you so much for your time, Paul!

Sometimes capturing emotions can get insanely hard, especially if that’s your BIG DAY which can be just just a bit overwhelming. Catching the right emotion out of thousands is a true talent. We were impressed by Portraits by Design who has achieved it professionally accurate! My recommendation is 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Paul, we love your work. With every “click” you realise true feelings, naturally and elegant.

Love the photos of everyone and I'm very happy to see one of myself where I look like me. Thank you again for your time and patience with all of us. Time passes so fast that we can miss or forget the changes as the family grows in size and personality so these frozen moments/memories are very precious to everyone.

Paul recently took time to shoot my family.  He was brilliant!  Kind, helpful and professional.  He managed our family (mum, dad and 5 kids from teenagers to a 5 year old) in a masterful way, keeping everyone relaxed and smiling and bringing our our personalities.  We love the pictures he took and will treasure them for many years to come.  Seeing ourselves together in beautifully shot and presented images has brought our family even closer together.

We recently visited Paul and Kerry at Portraits by Design to have new family photos taken with our new born baby.  Portraits by Design is by far the best photography experience either my wife or I have ever had. It wasn't a chore at all, it was a pleasant and fun experience.

We were greeted by Paul who was extremely welcoming and friendly, he also brought in a photographer called Kerry who specialised in new born photography. Kelly was also fantastic, she knew exactly how to work with new borns, their parents, and was brilliant at calming our daughter and getting amazing poses. While the baby photos were being taken, we parents were made to feel extremely comfortable and provided with tea, hot chocolate and water. We also had time to chat to Paul, he has a deep knowledge of photography and printing photos. It was refreshing that instead of any hard sales techneques, we learned a lot about priting and framing of photos! For example, I had no idea that there were different types of glass which could be used in photo frames!

We were not rushed in anyway, Paul and Kerry took their time with our new born and made us feel totally relaxed during the session. We absolutely love our new photos, Paul and Kerry's knowledge shows in them. We can't wait to get our physical prints and hang them on the wall. Paul was so kind, he even took a photo we sent him of our wall and mocked up what different arrangements of prints would look like!

I will definitely be using Visual Voice again, I could not speak highly enough of them.

Thank you so much Paul and Kerry!
