Total Value $520. Today – $10! 

FOR 10 FAMILIES ONLY. So get in quick to avoid that FOMO feeling.

So if your family is FUN, maybe a bit quirky and loves a good laugh ...

And you’re looking for a unique experience for your family that you’ll look back on with a smile for years time come …


If there is one thing I have learnt since we jumped to mainland  … MELBOURNIANS ARE AWESOME.

You guys know how to do COFFEE and love your LANEWAYS. 

You are SPORTS mad, FOOD crazy, ART obsessed and just love getting out and about in this awesome city we now call home.

Honestly, Photobat has felt right at home from the very start.

Because I’m kinda UN-CONVENTIONAL when it comes to Family Portraits and I think we fit right in here in Melbourne. 

I LOVE getting outdoors with families, having fun, playing with the kids, telling bad fart jokes and capturing REAL GENUINE moments.

SO let’s celebrate your family’s INDIVIDUALITY … BUT LEAVE THE CHEESE IN THE FRIDGE. There ain’t no stiff forced posing in these sessions. Just a bunch of fun family memories and more than the occasional belly laugh … all caught on camera.

What is a Photobat? And who is this Alan guy?

Hi, I’m Alan the photographer and everything else at Photobat. I’m a life long photographer, starting in grade 5! I’m a Dad, husband and pet wrangler or two cats and a gassy dog. I often subject my family to dress in onesies for family photos.

I grew up being dragged each year to portrait studios and made to sit on a weird couch, put my arm awkwardly on my brother (who smells) and say “CHEESE” into the camera as a man squeezed a little squeaky toy. I didn’t like that and that is why I choose to take portraits that are full of fun and personality! Nothing boring! 

It’s why I often have to change my clothes at the end of a session (wet, dirty and often a mix of both). I love channeling a families energy, fun and uniqueness into fun sessions and then turn them into artwork that make you smile and your friends say “That’s so you” when they see them on your wall.

Nice words from some of our awesome families.
