Family Portraiture in Park

Family Portraiture Updates

When is the last time you had a professional family photography session done? Family Portraiture updates are so important for the preservation of memories. Children are growing up so fast and it’s so important to capture them regularly with their parents, grandparents and aunties & uncles.

Very often my clients book me to celebrate an important milestone birthday or a special anniversary. What better birthday gift can you give than beautiful professional family photographs?

I had so much fun with this gorgeous family.  We captured every possible combination of family photographs, as family portraiture is not just a picture of all of them together. In every extended family session, I make sure that everybody gets their turn. When you look back at family photographs, don’t you wish you had a really nice photograph with just your mum or just your dad? Or perhaps with nanna or grandpa? All too often I hear from parents that the last time they had a professional photograph taken of just the two of them was at their own wedding.

Large Family Portraiture Session

Large Family Portraiture Session

Summertime in Perth is the time when families from overseas or interstate are visiting. Often it is a chance to catch up with each other, never quite sure when the next time is going to be when everybody is able to get together. When it happens, cousins get together and have fun, sisters catch up in person and not just through skype, and grandparents love having their children and grandchildren around them. This amazing family had a special reason to book a family portraiture session: a Golden Wedding Anniversary. It is such a beautiful gift to the parents to supply them with fresh family photographs. I know from my own parents, that this is really all they want. Plus at the golden age – what other really meaningful present do you give them? Very often they already have everything they want or need in their house.

Photographs like this don’t just happen without planning. Upon booking, I always advise my customers how to plan outfits so that photographs will look harmonious. On the day of the session, when I photograph a large family like the one below, I always make sure to mix up the different families and groups. Naturally, it is important to get a photograph of everybody together, but it’s also important to give each family time. So for this family, my plan was as follows: group photo of everybody, each family unit, each couple, siblings together, all cousins together, grandparents with grandkids, grandparents with their daughters, adult sisters plus individual shots of everybody. Quite a list and quite a number of photographs to get done in a short space of time.

Happy First Birthday little Evelyn

Happy Birthday little Evelyn – Cake Smash Photography Outdoors

We planned this family photography session in a park in Perth to celebrate little Evelyn’s first birthday with a cake smash. It was a gloomy evening and the light wasn’t ideal, however, we were grateful it wasn’t raining. At the beginning, Little Evelyn was perhaps a little hesitant and preferred the meringues over the cake. However, she soon got into it and in the end smashed the whole cake. Naturally, her big brother helped, claiming to be “starving” so he had a few big bites of the cake too.

Cake Smash Photo Session can easily be organised in a park, bushland or beach. It has a more casual feel to it. For more information on my cake smash photography, please click here: Cake Smash.

This cake smash photography session took place in Harold Boas Park.

Little Vanya – 3 weeks new ❤️

Little Vanya –  the little “Hmari Laado”

To those of you who don’t speak Hindi “Hmari Laado” means “Princess, God gifted to us” – how beautifully descriptive is this nickname. This gorgeous little girl was such a smiler during her session. Prior to the photo shoot, I had the pleasure of meeting her parents at their maternity session. It’s always lovely to progress from Bump to Baby. This way, you know the parents already and I get quite excited about meeting the new baby. As the family is of Indian descent, I especially purchased a brand-new dupatta to wrap her in. I chose a colour I really liked and hope to be able to use it with my Indian baby girls. Of course, if a mum has their wedding dupatta or sari to bring along, that would be even better and so personal. In preparation for any little Indian boys, I also bought a red scarf, which I can drape around a baby boy. Thank you, Pallavi, for also bringing along a little bindi for Vanya’s forehead. ❤️

Happy Birthday little Logan

First Birthday Portraiture Session for Little Logan

Logan has just had his first birthday and mum had planned a photo shoot for quite a while. We arranged to meet early in the morning in some bushland which was lucky, as the day turned out to be a hot one. I brought along a little wicker chair, balloons and my little red cart. The brief to the parents was to be natural with their son, play, cuddle and just show me the love they have for their little boy. The session lasted about an hour, but I got a lovely variety of shots. Here are 20 to show you, but the parents ended up with 45 images. I hope that in years to come they will look back at these photos of their little boy when he no longer as little as this. It’s such a special time, and I felt honoured capturing their love for each other.

I am offering this particular photo session at the same price as my cake smash, which is $395. This is a very special price given the fact that my standard family portraiture prices start at $495. However, all my packages for a family session with children under the age of 1 are discounted. I firmly believe the first year is so special, that parents should get as many photographs as possible. It’s an hour’s session and you will receive 30-40 high-resolution images on a USB stick. Images in black & white and social media reduced files are complimentary. You can arrange an outdoor session just like, at a local park or at the beach. Please contact me if you would like to have a chat about your baby’s portraiture. Thanks. 🙂
