Why I'm a location based family photographer.
Back in the 80’s my parents dragged us around all the portrait studios, I was made to sit in strange poses and repeatedly told to smile at the camera. I didn’t handle that too well.
I pulled faces and was generally a pain in the butt. I know this as I’ve met many of the photographers since and they agree, I really was a pain in the butt.
That is why the style you see here is much more natural and relaxed, no studios for families just fantastic locations be that your home, out in nature or even in a unique urban environment. Everyone feels more relaxed and the opportunities for fun are endless!
The Photobat Sessions
Not the standard “sit here and smile” type family photography Melbourne session, but the ones that are relaxed and enjoyable for everyone.
We work together to design your session and location to be a fun experience that will be remembered as much as the photos on the wall will be cherished.
A fun portrait session for multiple generations of your family, grandparents, parents and kids (sometimes great grand parents!) These extended family photography sessions are always filled with laughs and get a fantastic collection of images that will last generations. I’m really passionate about these sessions, I get too many enquiries that start with “We need an urgent portrait session because someone is sick”. Don’t wait to capture your kids and their grandparents.
Newborn & Baby Photography
There are two great times to photograph newborns and babies. In the second week of their lives and then when they are sitting, around the 8-10 month mark. Newborn sessions are photographed at your home, giving you the flexibility to have all you need on hand and cut out the stress of getting to a location. The sitter sessions are great to do at home or on location, and are fantastic with older siblings who can play with the cuteness.
Celebrate yourselves! Have some fun and remember this time in your lives.
These family photography Melbourne couple sessions are really focused around you, what you love to do and where you love to go. If that is a great spot in the city you love to get a drink or taking your dog for a walk around the beach with the fur children.
Conceptual Family Photography
Everyone is unique… but is your family that extra bit special? Do you all love a movie, dressing up and just having a good time?
We can design sessions all around your passions and eccentricities. We love doing the different shoots and are up for anything! Think throwing paint, playing in mud, formal wear on a roof top, eating sushi on a train…. my brain is pretty good at turning crazy ideas into awesome Melbourne Family Photography sessions.
Family Photography Melbourne Style Guide
Urban / City Sessions
For something a bit different to the usual parks and beaches, look to those places that at first glance may not be considered amazing locations, but they really are.
Urban back streets, city laneways, bold colours and big industrial spaces make brilliant locations for all kinds of family portraits.
These are perfect places for families to explore and also makes fantastic artwork for modern homes.
One of the most popular locations for family photography in Melbourne is to have your portraits in the great outdoors. As part of the planning process, we chat with you about places that are special to you and how we can incorporate them into your session.
Don’t worry if you don’t have any ideas on where, I have a heap of fantastic spots I can recommend to you.
