Family & Generational Portraits

"I would like to sing Ros's praises from the rooftops! 10 years after Ros initially captured our then young family, Ros again delivered truly beautiful authentic images. In her presence our 4 teenagers relaxed totally and she captured their individual essence and our family as a whole. Fabulous!"

" Magic is the best way to describe the family photos Ros took for us a number of years ago, when our children were little & again now with our teenage girls. She is a delight to work with, she somehow seems to capture natural shots that bring out the best in all of us.Thanks again to Our Life Photographer ! "

" I am absolutely over the moon with the images you captured of our newborn Eva.

I honestly could not be happier. The sitting was so relaxed & easy, your calm, understanding nature & amazing eye for detail made it all the more an enjoyable experience.

I will be recommending Tea Party Portraits to everyone I know. Ros Baynes, you have An Amazing Talent."

" I needed some portraits done for my work and various social networking mediums.The final images varied in style and they were perfect for their intended use. I've had such great feedback on them from other people! Ros was able to interpret my rough ideas and apply her photographic expertise. " Social worker

Ros loves photographing fashion and enjoyed studying many of the great masters of the classic era of photography. They inspired her so ~ that many moons ago she completed her folio major in location fashion photography. As a young photographer she did several seasons for Purity ~ an exclusive fashion store in the Wintergarden, Brisbane along with other work for models and fashion websites.

"If a day goes by without my doing some photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up" Richard Avedon fashion & portrait photographer




" We were fortunate to have Ros Baynes photograph our wedding. She effortlessly stopped time with her images & captured fleeting moments, now ours forever to enjoy. Ros' images were so beautiful & creative Roma Street Parklands used them for their own promotional purposes for several years. Great rates with perfect results! "

Now that Ros Baynes considers herself to be sage-ing rather than ageing ~ the photographer finds this area of work to be meaningful and considers it an important modality in the creation of a healthy and flourishing society ! When it comes to recovery as a community and individually these are the kind, enjoyable yet powerful healing tools. She looks forward to further being an advocate and participating in projects in the future.

Ros had the honour to be among a handful of photographers to have work in an aqusitive collection of Queensland Landscape images in the Wesley Hospital. Auchenflower. The collection of large format rainforest images can be viewed in ward 6E in the East Wing of the hospital.



Events & Celebrations

"Ros has the experience & personality to make us comfortable in expressing visually our expectations. She also had the talent to exced them. In a phrase : Affordable Artistry."

Stephan Warren & Kate Smith



Ros loves shooting on location ~ however for some reasons, an indoor shoot may be more appropriate for your requirements. If you are unsure Ros would be happy to discuss your concepts and ideas.

Currently Ros is working in the studio on a series of historically themed classical portraits and looks forward to having an exciting exhibition/event later this year.  

Styling assistance

Whatever the creative project may be. Over the years from diverse interests, experience and study Ros has developed a keen aesthetic wisdom. Having a sixth sense when it comes to colour and visual communication she enjoys consulting and is happy to be of service at an affordable hourly rate. Her assistance could raise the bar on your next visual venture !



Ros is the first to agree that everyone's a photographer now days. Anyone looking back from the 70's would think we are a bunch of spy's and Sci Fi weirdos with our fancy devices! The beauty of these contraptions is everyone can now share in the passion for photography! Ok ~ so let's share a creative half day, maybe go on a shooting rampage of the very best kind. See the world from a new awesome perspective ! "It's not what you look at that matters, It's what you see." Henry David Thoreau

Being an "Old School" kind a gal and a "Nostalgic Junkie" at heart ~ would you be interested on learning some fascinating facts about the masters, talk about chiaroscuro or develop a light sensitive image?

Gift Vouchers

They can be a unique and personal gift ~ a little lifesaver if your stuck for ideas or run out of time. Many families have purchased them as a group. Grandparents love them !



Over the years Ros has donated a lot of her time and talents to many various events for charity organisations; luncheons, dinners for Childhood Cancer & Leukemia Foundation & Breast Cancer awareness. Various events for The Wilderness Society, (where she is a bequest member) have been documented. Several of her landscape images have been reprinted for national brochures & invitations.

Tea Party Portraits has photographed many events for Karuna. She is always grateful for their assistance to her family years ago.
