Melbourne Newborn & Family Portrait Photographer
Melbourne Portrait Photographer - your heart memories captured forever
We are a premier Melbourne newborn baby, child and family photographer. Your custom professional portrait photography session will be as unique as you and your family are, I want you to have fun, and you will have images captured that reflect this.
For families and children, the location of your session is your choice, either our professional photography studio located in Seville, or an on-location choice such as a local park, a beautiful garden in somewhere like those in Olinda, the beach, or at home where your family are in a familiar environment. I love to get creative and if you have suggestions or styles and themes you'd like to try out, I'd love to discuss them with you. If your children have a favourite toy or activity, bring it along. Want to do a cake smash, beach picnic or pond fishing? Perfect. Have a favourite chair, umbrella, or red gumboots that your child won't remove? All the better, there are no rules. Our session will be relaxed and fun, so allow 1-2 hours for couples and families so we have ample time for snacks, exploring, bribery, outfit changes etc.
Newborn baby portraits are optimally timed for less than 2 weeks of age when they are sleepy and more cooperative. Allow 2-3 hours for feeding, changing and settling. Please contact me with your due date as soon as possible so we can save room in our schedule. If you'd like maternity photos, these are best taken between 28-34 weeks, and you may wish to book a maternity/newborn package.
If you prefer studio images for your family, we have a studio with a comfortable lounge room to wait and a selection of antique and rustic props to choose from. Because we take the time to consult with you about the type of images you want, we are able to provide images for you that colour match the rooms you wish to display your images in, we can custom shoot album images if that is what you prefer, it's all personalised to your preferences.
After your session, I will have 25-35 professionally hand edited proofs available for you to choose from within 1 to 2 weeks. Your prints will be ready for pick-up 1-2 weeks after your order is placed, 3 weeks for canvas. We offer payment plans if you need extra time. In all ways we are about quality rather than quantity, we would rather give you 10 award worthy images than 50 average digital files.
Your experience with us is completely personal and customised. Our sessions range from 1 hour to 3 hours depending on your booking type, typically newborn sessions are 2-3 hours, family and childrens sessions 1-2 hours.
If you need suggestions for outdoor locations for your day out, I have an enormous list of beautiful parks and gardens located throughout the Melbourne Eastern Suburbs and the Yarra Valley that are perfect for children, family and couples portrait photography.
There are parks such as Lilydale Lake, Emerald Lake Park where the kids can see Puffing Billy, Jells Park in Wheeler Hill, National Rhodendron Gardens in Olinda, the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, Lilydale Lake and many olde world ornamental gardens I like to keep private for clients. Recent and upcoming session locations include Maroondah Dam / Reservoir in Healesville and Cloudehill Nursery in Olinda.
There are also numerous outdoor activies we can do to entertain the kids and take some amazing images - a beach picnic outside the colourful beach boxes in Brighton or Mount Martha, afternoon tea at one of the amazing Yarra Valley vineyards and wineries, a visit to a lavender farm or what about some a-maze-ing fun (pardon the pun) at Hedgend Maze in Healesville. There are many, many options available, give me a call and we can have some fun planning an exciting session for you.
We also offer a very limited number of wedding photography bookings for the year, if you would like to discuss an affordable wedding photographer option, please give me a call for further details.
In all ways and all sessions, our service is personal, customised, and all about you and your preferences. We are regularly recommended by word of mouth, and we thank our past customers for their references with studio dollar credits as a thank-you, just another way we reward our customer loyalty.
