Welcome to Kindred


The opportunity to walk into your family and become your trusted photographer for life isn't something I take for granted. The idea to create a VIP programme especially for my beautiful clients came about when I realised how many amazing families I've become friends with over the time and how privileged a position I'm in to photograph the important moments and milestones. This is my chance to connect with you again, thank you for supporting my business and inspire you to ask me to create more beautiful portraits of your family.


Qualifying as a Kindred Family is really easy. You will have asked me to come and photograph your family more than once, referred me to a loved one or friend, or purchased stunning prints and products at a value of $1500 or over. In return you will be given access to special promotions and offers, advance notice on competitions and events and you will receive our fantastic 'app' containing all of the photos you've purchased over the years from Simone Hanckel Photography. The ultimate brag book!

What one gorgeous Kindred Family had to say about the launch of the programme...

Hi Simone

I have been meaning to email you for some time to say that this must be one of the most generous gifts you could ever give anyone who has had the privilege of having you photograph their children! Thank-you somehow seems insignificant- but we would like to say a huge thank-you for welcoming us into your family through kindred!

We look forward to seeing you again soon...

Huge hugs

Sebastian, Isabella, Nicole & David

Kindred Gifts

Being a ‘Kindred Family’ will give you access to special offers, competitions, exclusive sittings and products. Every Kindred Family is entitled to one complimentary standard sitting per year (valued at $150: excluding special events and mini sessions). This is my thank you to the families that have welcomed me into their lives, and trusted me to be the one that documents their kids’ childhoods. 


Your own App!

To welcome you to the Kindred Programme, I have a very special gift for you and your family.

This link will take you to your very own app containing a selection of your own favourite photos. It can be opened onto your computer, smartphone or iPad and shared easily with family and friends through email or posting the link to Facebook or Twitter.

I will be able to add images from our shoots each time we get together so you are always up to date and ready to share. This very special product is only available to Kindred Families. 



Your very own web page

This is the best part! Your own images on your very own web page for you to share with family and friends. You will  be able to book a sitting, find out about special offers, the latest news and learn about new products and events before anyone else. 

I hope you love being part of the Kindred Family.
