Kidding Around Children's Photography

Specialising in kindergarten & playgroups


Kidding Around Children’s Photography have been taking photos of children at Melbourne Kindergartens & Preschools for nearly 20 years. Max Robertson, the owner and principal photographer has been taking photos for more than 20 years. Over this time he has created many happy memories for many families throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria.

When taking the photos, Max knows how important it is for the teachers to have minimal disruption to the kinder group. Max moves around the group taking natural photos of the children as they are completing the activities they are doing at the time whether it is painting, pasting, puzzles or play-doh. He will also move outside with the children while they are playing in the sandpit, on the swings, or on the bikes. He spends the entire session with the group.

Max’s interaction with the children and his ability to remember every child’s name simply astounds the kinder teachers . The results show in his photos.

We have our own printing lab so we have total control of the quality of the photos that are produced. Our lab and admin staff prides themselves on their attention to detail with every photo that leaves our premises of the highest quality possible .

Our pricing structure is such that parents are not forced to pay for photos that are not wanted in expensive packages . Parents can choose to buy one photo or as many individual photos as required.

We look forward to hearing from you regarding your kindergarten photos for this year.


“We at Melton West Preschool cannot speak highly enough of Max and his team at Kidding Around Photography . We love their reassuring way with the children and parents constantly comment on the high quality of the photos and how natural they are. “

“Each year we look forward to having the photographer from Kidding Around come to our centre. They are always courteous  and respectful and I am so impressed that they even remember the names of some children from previous years. Any questions we raise are dealt with promptly and professionally as they strive to make it easy for the Centre’s staff. And most importantly ….the photographs are beautiful.”
