Meet the Team

Hello and thanks for visiting our site.

We're Mike and Diane Wilson, and together, with our old dog Tosca, we run Riverhead Photography, a small and friendly business that specialises in photographing families and children.

We're about giving families a truly enjoyable experience while we capture beautiful images that they will treasure for the rest of their days.

We've raised our three children, two boys and a girl, on our lifestyle block and they've now flown the coop, leaving us behind with Tosca and lots more time to photograph families like yours.

MIKE

MIKE

As a former teacher with over thirty years experience, working and engaging with kids of all ages has been my passion. While teaching, I always had a camera close at hand, especially teaching science and capturing photos of school kids Diane and I used to take away on tramping trips. And of course, I've always taken photos of my own family! Nowadays I'm lucky enough to able to follow my dream of specialising in family portraiture. When I'm not taking photos, I'll be working in the garden, cycling, walking, enjoying a good coffee or playing the guitar.

Like Mike, I've also got a background in teaching and love working with people. I enjoy assisting Mike during photo shoots as well as managing the overall administrative side of our business. I particularly enjoy those relaxed, spontaneous moments that produce magical photos and reveal special relationships between family members and friends. I've a bag tricks up my sleeve to help any kids who might have temporarily lost their smiles or are just not in the mood for photographs! My interests include reading, movies, music, gardening and travelling.

TOSCA

TOSCA

I'm nearly sixteen and quite frankly, I don't do a lot these days except lie around sleeping. However, as you can see I'm a good-looking canine (I even have eyebrows!) and I'm partial to having my photo taken. So, don't be surprised if I come up to the paddocks with you and your family and keep an eye on how things are going with the photo session. I love kids too and if you don't have a dog of your own, I just might step up and pose for one of those adorable shots with your kids. I don't bite or charge anything extra for these services!

Our family portrait session was amazing! Mike’s view of our family through his lens was unique and he had a warmth and ease with us and our four children that made the day fun and relaxing. The resulting photographs reflect us in our true capacity as a large and happy family - we will forever treasure the moments Mike captured!
