Family photography in Manly

“Loving someone, you see a beauty in a person that not everyone observes.  It is a beauty from within. Renate’s talent is to capture exactly that surreal beauty.  And she does it in such a way that it becomes visible to everyone else too.

Her pictures are simply enchanting.  I love our family shots.”

“Thank you Renate for such a wonderful opportunity you are providing to Sophie as a dance ambassador for you in 2016. It is a privilege for us to be a part of this journey with such a talented and professional photographer.

Every image you produce captivates what is beautiful in dance and our beautiful city.  You make the photo sessions fun and relaxing for the kids and parents.

We are loving being part of the ambassador family, meeting for coffees and chats makes is all the more fun.  Thank you.”

“Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures from our family photo session at Balmoral Beach a few weeks ago. As with last year, we really appreciate and love your pictures and that you organise everything around that event.

It has been an annual tradition now for us to capture a few lovely moments of our family one a year before Christmas. It is always a pleasure and lots of fun working with Renate as our photographer.

Thank you for a great job.”

Renate Streuber



“My daughter Racquel won a dance photo shoot through a competition run on Instagram.  What an awesome experience it turned out to be. Renate’s professionalism and enthusiasm for her profession is inspiring.

Renate made Racquel and I feel so comfortable and the photos are breathtaking.  We love every single one of her shots. Her eye for detail and choice of amazing scenery, whilst making my daughter shine and be the centre of attention in each and every image, is amazing.

We highly recommend Renate from PureDynamics Photography for all your photography needs. We will definitely be back for another shoot.

My daugter Emilie had the wonderful experience of a photo shoot with Renate.  Renate made the photo shoot fun and interesting and worked with Emilie in trying many different poses to create a unique and special image.

We were both extremely happy with the quality of photos taken.  It was difficult to choose our favourite photos.

I would not hesitate to recommend Renate to anyone wanting to capture that special moment.

“A family holiday in Sydney with my husband and 14 month old son to visit my parents and brother was the perfect opportunity to take some photos of our whole family together and Renate was the perfect photographer to capture those moments.  She was very helpful in the preparation of the photos session – spending time via email and phone to discuss what we wanted, the location and what to wear.

On the day itself, she was very easy going and put everyone at ease and even managed to get a few smiles out of our little man despite him having slept very poorly.  She was also very considerate and structured the order of the photos so that my father could take a rest.

Last but not least, we are all delighted with the photos that Renate took. They are beautiful and she captured the wonderful and special time we had with our family, and also the bond between my parents and their only grandchild.  I cannot recommend Renate and PureDynamics Photography highly enough.”

“I cannot thank you enough for the amazing photo shoot you did for Verity.  From the first time we spoke discussing what we would like from the shoot, to your absolute professionalism of helping us choose what would work for us and for the camera; including guidance with choosing costumes that would suit Verity’s style and the location.

The photo shoot day was an unforgettable experience, watching the sunrise over the city while you worked your magic with the camera and your calm demeanor, as Verity challenged herself with poses and costume changes in cold weather.

You have provided us with photographs that will be shared and treasured for a lifetime.  We cannot thank you enough, and in saying that, I feel we have developed a friendship that will remain for many years.

I also wanted to add that so many people have said how talented you are and absolutely love the photographs you have taken.  Thank you!”

“Renate at PureDynamics Photography is so vibrant and easy going that she made my Author photo shoot giggling fun. She understood exactly what I wanted from a location and setting perspective and was more than happy to meet me at my desired spot.

All the photo’s Renate took for me are of stellar quality and I now have the necessary arsenal for all facets of my publicity campaign.

Do yourselves a favour and hire this amazingly wonderful woman for some professional and very ‘real’ photography. You won’t be disappointed.”

“As a small business owner, finding the right person to take photos of my clothing range was a huge decision for me.  After speaking with Renate and hearing her ideas, the choice was easy.

Renate from PureDynamics Photography was incredible to work with.  Nothing was too much trouble and her ability to understand my needs and work with me was fantastic.  The quality of the photography was amazing.

Renate has a wonderful artistic eye and she captured beautiful stylised, modelled and flat layout images for my website and social media sites.

I would highly recommend PureDynamics Photography to anyone seeing professional photography.   was extrememly please with the overall results and I will definitely be a returning client.”

‘We had such a wonderful family photo session with Renate his year at Balmoral beach. Even though it was 6.15am on a Saturday morning, Renate did a great job and the pictures are just amazing.

We are very happy that we found Renate!  We already had a newborn photo session with Cosima in 2015, as well as Christmas photographs this year and last year and will continue to go back to her for our annual family photographs.”

“We had a really lovely Newborn session with our 8 weeks old daughter Cosima, which was not always easy because she did not sleep all the time.

Renate was so lovely and patient and we really enjoyed the session. Renate gave me a lot of advices beforehand which was very professional and she spent lot of time on that and it was very organised, which I really appreciated.

We always took family pictures at the end of the year on a annual basis, before we moved to Australia. It is quite important for us to keep and capture this beautiful memories for the future. Therefore, we definitely going ahead with Renate for further sessions and I already recommended her to other friends.”

“PureDynamics Photography provided not only first class service but first class photos. Renate put the whole family at ease and made the photo shoot a lot of fun.  Her energy, enthusiasm and skill shone through in her pictures. We were delighted with the outcomes.”

Sarah Hill



“The dance ambassador experience was truly amazing.  It had such a great balance of professionalism and fun, although the early mornings were tough.  As soon as we started with the shoots though, everyone’s spirit lifted.

Renate has an amazing eye for the art of photography.  This helped guide everyone into the right pose and position (in case it looked like we were missing a leg). If I had the choice to do it again, I would, as it was something that I will treasure and keep forever.”

Abbey Sarric: 2016 Dance Ambassador



“My parents live overseas and i thought of a special Christmas present as they were visiting us: a photo with their grand-children, actually THE photo with the kids for them to keep forever. After explaining to Renate what i had in mind (location, dress code etc…), all family met her at Balmoral at 5:30 am.

We posed like stars, we played like kids and we laughed like a family. Thanks Renate for these memories and for taking amazing amazing photos especially THE one I had in mind. This present will last for ever.”

“After filling in the inquiry form on her website, Renate called me to confirm the session and the details. The discussion was very professional and we agreed Balmoral Beach was the perfect location for our family shoot.

Not only is Renate a great photographer but her warm, patient and positive personality made the session a memorable experience. The results are outstanding. Thank you Renate.”

“Renate was challenged with capturing the beauty that was our squirmy and sleepy Asher at 6 weeks old. Her vision was clear, yet her open mind welcomed my ideas and input. With her creative imagination and pre-prepared variety of props, the experience was succinct, professional and fun!

We were presented with a heart-stopping collection of images that we hang with pride on the walls of our home. We have also been able to share these images as gifts for grandparents which are treasured keepsakes. Thank you!”

Kylie Monteleone



“Renate took the most gorgeous photos of our 6 month old, Sophie.  Sophie and myself felt very relaxed and at ease at the photo shoot which we were able to have at our home.  All of the shots we requested and more were done at the 30 minute shoot.  We both had a wonderful time with Renate.

All the photos we received were stunning, very natural and are now proudly hanging throughout our home.  We are looking forward to our family photo shoot at Christmas time with Renate as we were very happy with all of the photos of Sophie. I have no hesitation in recommending PureDynamics Photography.  You will not be disappointed. Thanks very much.”

Claire Catchpool



“Our session with Renate wasn’t only easy, but enjoyable and fun.  Renate was such a pleasure to work with and had such a great rapport with my boys.  She is truly talented, as the photos she took captured the personalities of my family perfectly.

You can tell that not only is Renate a gifted photographer, but she truly loves taking photos and working with families.  We are thrilled with the outcome of our photo session. The only challenge now is narrowing down all the fabulous photos she took – there are too many perfect shots.  What a pleasure it was to work with her.”

Steph Abramowitz



“We first met Renate from PureDynamics Photography when she did our son’s pre-school pictures. I was so impressed, that when I found out I was pregnant, we decided to ask Renate to do my pregnancy&newborn photographs.

From our first meeting Renate was a dream to deal with-she is professional, organised and at the same time relaxed and patient. Our pregnancy photographs was a lot of fun. She managed to get amazing shots, as well as enticing our slightly uncooperative three year old to smile.

We were thrilled with the results. The newborn photographs was also a great success, not easy with a tired Mum and a two week old. The photos are beautiful and a true testimonial of Renate’s talent! We love the memories!”

“We were so happy with the excellent results from Renate at PureDynamics Photography.  Not only did she make our very early morning session fun, she really connected with our kids and managed to even get some smiles out of Mr 3 who woke up on the wrong side of the bed!!

Everything is natural and easy going with Renate, and she achieves wonderful professional shots.  She has also been extremely organised and patient with follow up and helping us make decisions.We are so glad that we had Renate capture our life in Manly before we headed off on a new adventure.

She really did an amazing job of expressing our family’s personality and lifestyle through her photos. We can not recommend Renate and PureDynamics Photography highly enough…Fabulous experience!”

Penny Lamb



“Renate’s photographs of our family are absolutely stunning and we couldn’t be happier. She captured a moment of our life in such a natural, relaxed way which was exactly what we wanted. We’ll always remember that very early yet beautiful morning at Clontarf. Thank you so much.”

Maxine Fawcett




“Renate from PureDynamics Photography did amazing event photography for me last year.  I was so impressed, that I have recently engaged her again to capture photos over 2 days of the B2B Marketing Leaders Forum APAC 2016 my company organised.

As before, she has excelled my expectations, providing excellent high quality images of the speakers, the day as well as candid networking moments at breaks. She provides a professional photography service, making sure she understands exactly what is required and is a pleasure to work with.

The turnaround time for delivery of the images was fast and these are the best photos I have ever seen of any of my events.”

Emma Roborgh: Cultivate Media Group




“Stunning images every single one of them.  Thank you Renate.  You made this photo shoot fun and creative.  Your vision, perseverance and professionalism made all of this come true for Anabel.

A photo shoot with Renate and PureDynamics Photography is a perfect gift for someone who thinks a little outside the square.”

Simone Olivia Harrison




“This was our first professional family photo shoot, a much appreciated birthday present.  Discussions prior to the day about timing, location and best outfits for the group were very helpful.

On the day we weren’t sure what to expect but Renate was able to put us all at ease very quickly. The younger members of our family ranged from 6-10 years and ensuring they were still and smiling at the same time was a challenge that Renate took on admirably.

The location was excellent although initially very windy. Renate strategically made use of the weather, the light conditions and the available scenery to create beautiful backdrops for the photos. These backdrops included the sea, sand, sailing boats and magnificent trees.
Renate was relaxed, friendly, creative and had an engaging personality. All the photos are excellent: the muted colours provide an ethereal look that is visually appealing.
We certainly will be back in a couple of years.”

Ann Poulos




“Thanks for everything Renate! The photos you’ve taken of Carolina turned out absolutely beautiful. We have stunning images of our daughter’s dancing which we’ll cherish forever. ”

Ana Clemmett



“We asked Renate of PureDynamics to take some family photos in a beach and bushland setting. We have a 5 year old and 2 year old who were not the easiest of subjects. Renate was great and so patient with my children, and despite the challenges were able to produce amazing photos which were natural and beautiful in colour.

Renate spent a lot of time on the phone with me me prior to the shoot to understand what we wanted, and advising on everything such as what to wear and what not to wear. She also visited the location we chose prior to she shoot so we could schedule the shoot at a time of day that would have the best light.

The most difficult part was choosing the photos we wanted from so many great ones. I would highly recommend Renate and PureDynamics to anyone wanting not only professional photos but also a professional experience.”

“We had such a lovely morning doing our family photos with Renate!  Renate made us all feel at ease and made it so much fun for the kids.  She really listened to what we wanted and was such a pleasure to deal with. The photos turned out so beautifully and captured the essence of our family perfectly.  Thanks Renate for creating beautiful memories for us.”

Fiona Noonan




“My family lives abroad and I like to send them a photo of our kids with our Christmas card.  I’ve always selected a very amateur picture. This year, I wanted to do something special.  I asked Renate to capture the kids together as well as take some individual shots.

She came up with the idea of including me in some of the pictures and even advised me on good colours to wear – and bingo, I had a lovely Christmas present for my husband.
Renate is a very special person – she is calm, collected, very positive and it all comes through clearly in her photography.  Her ability to get what she needs from children in a very short period of time is nothing short of miraculous.  The photo shoot was a pleasure and so easy.

I am thrilled with the end product and would recommend Renate time and time again.  Let’s just say that I’ve already booked her in for every annual Christmas card until the kids are 18.”

“Renate has made some very special memories of my family that we are very lucky to have!! We had some terrible weather the day of the photo shoot, but Renate just knew how to work to both her and our strengths and captured some beautiful photos.  I believe that this is due to her family nature, photography knowledge and her understanding as a parent how some of the most amazing shots can be taken!  Thanks!”

Jade Toole




“Renate is a fabulous photographer.  She has at ease with her clients, and produced amazing shots of my daughter dancing.  The shoot was managed seamlessly with little fuss, and the results were amazing.  So many people have commented on how incredible the shots are.  Perfect for birthday and Xmas presents”.
