welcome / gallery

This page says what Beetle & Bear Photography does and what kindergarten, pre-school and day-care centre families get when they book us for a stress-free fun-filled photo-week.

capturing a genuine spark

Is your preschool centre is looking for an alternative to the standard ‘pose & say cheese’ photography vendors on the market? You’ve come to the right place! Beetle & Bear Photography uses a relaxed, fun documentary style to capture portraits that show each child's unique & genuine spark. Our photo galleries give families an honest, joyful peek in to their child's day.

organic & natural process

If your preschool has a free-range philosophy where children can play in or outdoors at their own choice, going at their own pace, then our photography approach and style will work well for you. Beetle & Bear understands the fundamentals of natural play and learning. We don’t rush kids through a process, we organically capture genuine moments. We respect the preschool space that educators work carefully at setting up. We also love Bush Kinder and outdoor programs and know how to capture the magic moments in an unobtrusive way.

time for every child

Being at your centre for the week means every single child gets a gallery including a broad range of photos popping with personality. You won’t even notice we’re there as we quietly blend in to the flow of your days.
