Your Portrait Experience

We believe all families are incredible without exception.

It’s our pleasure to discover and uncover the beautiful relationships our clients have with each other.

Canberra Family Portraits

Having family portraits on your walls means that your children get a powerful daily reminder – they are loved, they belong, they are important. This is what we are experts at – creating personalised artwork for your home that will be proudly displayed and enjoyed for decades to come. We know that as your children rapidly change and grow, it’s this artwork above all else that becomes priceless.

That is why we only offer the highest quality materials in our artwork range of archival, museum-grade products. Together with our unique style of natural photography, we deliver a premium product and service to our clients that is unparalleled.

 Get in touch

Your Fifth Lane portrait experience begins with a phone conversation with Beth to briefly discuss your needs and book your obligation free planning appointment.  To get started now, contact us.

Your Planning Appointment

Every family is unique so we invite you to the gallery to meet with us for a casual 30 minute chat to discuss how we can create something truly unique for your family.

We will discuss locations – lifestyle studio or outdoor, what to wear, the best time of day to have your portraits taken, how you’d like to display your portraits and also run you through the process and our pricing in more detail. Make sure you bring your diary so we can book in a time for your shoot.

Photography Session

Your Professional Photographer will guide you through the Shoot experience at your chosen location. We know the value of creating a fun, comfortable environment to achieve natural, happy expressions. So, we invest the time to get to know you, have fun with you, and provide direction suggestions as needed.

 Ordering Appointment

Seeing your images for the first time can be an emotional experience but a good one – we promise. We highly recommend that all decision makers are present as this is the only time we are able to set aside for you to select your images.

After a brief slideshow, we’ll help you create amazing wall art and show you ways of getting the most out of your family images.

Creating Heirlooms

After your ordering appointment, we set about creating unique heirlooms of the highest quality. A Fifth Lane portrait will last forever – that’s actually what it means! Every printed product that leaves our gallery carries a 75 year guarantee so rest assured, your investment will last a lifetime.


A Fifth Lane Portrait Experience starts at $150
Desktop products from $375

Frequently Asked Questions

The entire Digital Collection includes:

  • All photographs presented at your purchasing appointment (around 50)
  • Unlimited reproduction for private use
  • No logo watermark on the photographs
  • Professionally retouched on all photographs

The entire Digital Collection can also be purchased as a standalone product for $2,990.

Individual digital photographs can be purchased for $250 per photograph (min 5).

Do you offer payment plans?2023-03-21T16:13:57+11:00

We offer interest and fee-free payment plans for up to 3 months.  Our standard payment plan terms are a 25%+ deposit, with weekly, fortnightly or monthly debits from an Australian bank account. The best part of our payment plans is that you receive your artwork right away!

I never look good in photos, will you be able to help me look my best?2023-03-21T13:33:14+11:00

As a small, family owned and run business, we take great personal pride in our clients being 100% satisfied with their investment with Fifth Lane.

If you are not 100% satisfied with the experience and photographs presented to you at your purchasing appointment, we will offer you, without hesitation, a full refund of the $150 Fifth Lane sitting fee.  Excludes competition giveaways.

What should we wear for our photo session?2023-03-22T11:45:44+11:00

Choice of clothing is actually very important when it comes to the overall look of your photographs.  During your planning appointment we will guide you on what is best to wear.  There is some information in our Session Guide above, or it’s a great excuse to go shopping!

Where can I find your price list?2023-03-21T15:48:30+11:00

Our artwork options are unique and stunning, without seeing it in person the price list won’t have context.  We show you all the display options at the planning appointment and will go through the price list with you.  We know you’ll fall in love with our displays!

Can you accommodate large groups, such as an extended family shoot?2023-03-21T09:48:33+11:00

Absolutely! We allow a little extra time so we can photograph a variety of shots of the whole group, as well as individual family units, grandchildren, adult children with parents, cousins etc.

We had the most fun afternoon with Peter! Very professional and made the whole family feel so comfortable. Just love our photos. Thanks again Peter.

Had an absolute blast at our shoot with Peter & Beth. They did a wonderful job of making us all feel comfortable and relaxed. The first peek of the pics looked amazing – can’t wait to see the finished result! Would absolutely highly recommend 🙂
