2021 has been a fun ride here, being a Melbourne family photographer I’ve been out and about a heap capturing families connecting together. I’ve had the joys of heading south to Tasmania a couple of times to photograph families all over Tasmania but it seems like the Melbourne beaches are winning in terms of locations… yep, it seems like Bayside familes love the beach!
That is not to say that I’ve had some fantastic places that have special meanings to photograph at. I’ve been at soccer pitches, historic homes, family farms, back yards, front yards, laneways, the city and of course parks.
Oh the return families are also pretty special and the first half of this year I’ve photographed four families who I was there for the parents wedding! Plus some sisters who I first photographed when they were about 4 and 6 and now they are both studying at uni away from home! I really love that I can be there to capture the way families grow.
Here are a few of my faves from the start of the year, the rest of the year is looking pretty epic too with all the postponed portrait sessions from the last couple of lockdowns to photograph here in Melbourne, in Tasmania and also up in Brisbane!
The Photobat Bucket List - Update
So I’ve put together a bucket list of family portraits / experiences / people and places I’d love to be to photograph around Melbourne and beyond. Here are some of the top ones on the list.
Sunrise Stand Up Paddle-board family session – This one is for one of those still summer mornings, epic clouds or blue sky, still morning with the family together on their boards.
