Father’s have a special bond with their children and I love being able to capture these special connections between father and son or father and daughter. I feel very lucky and grateful that I am the one that captures these special moments for a family.
Looking to get the 6 monthly or yearly update of family photos? Which family photographer should you use? What should you look for when choosing a family photographer? Choosing your family photographer by price only could get you into trouble. Generally speaking cheap means not as good quality and it is the same with a family photographer. Prices between photographers can vary drastically and their price will be based on the level of photography experience, quality of work, style and awards won.
Life is busy and it's not always easy to get the whole family together for family photos. .....a month..... .....a few months..... pass by and before you know it you haven't seen your whole family for a year. It is so important to capture family photos at least once a year as life changes us. Children change the most in this time. Capturing a family photo is a nice way of remembering how everyone was at that exact moment in life. After all, your memories will fade…….and what is left?
Most people these days want family photography packages that include digital copies of all of the photos. However there are so many other options to create permanent high quality products that can be passed down to generations. Some photographers have an a-la-carte option and others have packages that are already made up.
Pregnancy is an absolute miracle of life. It is important to capture this time with maternity photos so that you will always have this special time captured. A pregnancy timeline is a great way to capture your growing belly and of course your beauty. You do tend to forget how small or big you were at different stages. With a pregnancy timeline, it means you can see the difference within 4 week periods. The best time to start this timeline is either at 12 or 16 weeks. Then again every 4 weeks until the baby is born.
In this session we first took family photos with mum and bub. Unfortunately daddy couldn’t be there. Proud grandma and grandpa were there for newborn pictures though. We were able to capture a variety of awake newborn pictures with a variety of props. He was strong and wiggled his way out of the wrap but we were able to capture a range of photos with close up details as well as full and half-length newborn pictures.

This beautiful family came in for family photos and newborn pictures. We spent the first 10 minutes taking family photos and then the majority of the time taking newborn pictures.

Archer came in only 12 days old for his newborn pictures and some family photos. This super cute little bundle thought it might be fun if he pooed in mummy’s hand while he was naked on her chest. Unfortunately we couldn’t take whole body family photos after this. We concentrated on newborn pictures and used sentimental items in such as a teddy bear and a crocheted octopus he was given at birth. Newborn pictures consisted of wraps, props and naked photos.

Mum came into the studio with her 4 year old son and 2 week old daughter for family photos. After the family photos we had almost 2 hours to capture newborn pictures. We had enough time for feeding, changing and capturing a variety of awake and sleepy newborn pictures including the use of a variety of props. Little miss loved getting newborn pictures in her jumpsuit. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
In this session we first took family photos and then concentrated on newborn pictures. This little man loved the cuddles during family photos but wasn’t so sure during his newborn pictures when he was laying by himself. After a few more cuddles during family photos we concentrated on newborn pictures. He was super strong and wiggle his way out of the wrap during newborn pictures but we managed to get a few when he was also snuggly too. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
