Family Photographer Melbourne

Capture the moment with family portraits.

It all happens so quickly it’s easy to forget to record those golden moments as your child changes from being a newborn, to a toddler, to starting school and then suddenly they are all grown up.

Family photographs and portraits are the perfect way to document your family’s story. Capture the moments here in Melbourne, as you and your family grow and change.

What to expect from your family photography session.

Our family portrait photography sessions are kept unobtrusive and relaxed. This results in natural and expressive images that reflect your family’s current stage of life and the personalities of every individual.  

Before we start, each family portrait photography session is completely tailored to suit your family’s specific needs in a detailed pre-shoot design consultation.

We work with your kids.

We understand that children vary so much in character and are at different stages in their life. 

Each of our sessions are children led, so you don’t need to worry if they are shy or boisterous. Your session is meant to capture you and your family, just being you!! 

The whole family is welcome!

We love including the whole family in portrait sessions! 

Immediate family is of course a must – displaying family images creates a positive impact on your children’s development. 

But you are more than welcome to include grandparents and pets too!

Match your artwork to your home!

Wall art is one of the most popular choice for displaying family and kids portrait photography. Our uniquely designed photo shoots mean we can style your session so your images will suit the spaces they will fill in your home.

As part of our service, we offer artwork pre visualisation tools, so that you can even see exactly what your pieces will look like in your own home! 

To find our more about our display options, visit our Finished Products and Pricing page.

Where will the photography shoot happen?

Family and children’s photography sessions can of course happen anywhere!

But we usually shoot outdoors in either a beach, garden, bush or urban session, with plenty of space to move around and for younger children to play.

Timed for the light.

Sessions are timed for the best light of the day, which is 45 minutes after sunrise or 1.5 – 2 hours before sunset.

Generally morning sessions tend to work best with younger children and afternoon sessions often work best for older families.
