Picture it… Carefully select matching outfits, hair brushed, styled and sealed with hairspray, curated poses that are nothing short of awkward… Now all together, say ‘cheeeeese’.
Is this how you imagine a family photography Melbourne session will go? An hour of trying to get everyone organised, wrangling the little kids, getting the older kids excited about photos and making sure everyone is looking at the cameras at the same freaking time!
And not just looking in the same direction but also smiling nicely… You know, a genuine smile and not a weird ‘kill me now’ or ‘I need to pee really badly’ kinda smile.
I can tell you now, just like hairstyles and fashion (okay, fashion is a bit of a stretch), family photographs have come a long way.
Long gone are the days of daggy family portraits, weird awkward poses and ‘matchy, matchy’ outfits that you thought was a good idea at the time, but 20 years down the track you realised it wasn’t.
Family photography Melbourne sessions are now gloriously real, raw and personable, resulting in unique and precious images of your family.
Family photos are less about getting that perfectly manicured shot and more about timeless portraits that capture both individual personalities and collective dynamics.
Don’t get caught up thinking family photos are old and stuffy! Book a family photography Melbourne session today and find out just how amazing a family photo shoot can be.
Bottle up those family memories while you can! They’ll be gone before you know it!
No one knows what the future holds. Unexpected events happen, we receive news that changes our lives, we lose loved ones, we change, grow and evolve.
While the changing, growing and evolving happens without us noticing (ah, hello! When was my cute and cuddly baby replaced with this moody teenager?!), other major events can cause us to pause and realise just how quickly life changes.
A new baby, an engagement, a wedding, an illness, a death. All prompts to remind us to capture the milestones in our life.
But what if you don’t make it to those milestones? When are the memories captured then?
Don’t wait for a major life event to trigger a family photography Melbourne session. Bottle up your family memories while you have the time. Before it’s too late. Before life and your family have changed forever.
Sure, you may not regret capturing your family today, or even tomorrow. But how will you feel 10, 20 years down the road?
It’s only when your little ones are not so little, they’re grown adults creating families of their own. Or when important people in your life are gone. It’s then when you’ll realise that time flies unbelievably fast and you wish you had spent more time making and capturing memories while you had the chance.
I mean, I never heard a single person say “I took way too many photos and that family photography session was completely unnecessary”. Have you?
Whether it’s a milestone, a moment or a new life, now is the time to capture the true essence of your family.
Don’t wait until the kids are grown and left the nest, state, or even the country! Make time to book a Family Photography Melbourne photo shoot and capture the dynamics of your family today.
Hey there, I’m Karen Barber owner of Kapture Photography. I specialise in Family Photography Melbourne and love nothing more than capturing memories and moments for families and have been photographing expectant mothers, babies and families for over a decade.
I have a fully equipped contemporary photography studio based in Rowville, Melbourne, which is easily accessible and custom-designed to cater to expectant mums, babies and busy families.
Everything we do at Kapture Photography is designed to reduce your stress so you can simply come along, enjoy our time spent together and leave with lasting memories that you’ll cherish forever.
We have a wide selection of photography props and accessories on hand to produce just the right look for your family images. And, while you’re here, you will be able to browse through our product library of albums, prints and canvases to see first-hand what your finished products will look like.
If an outdoor location shoot is what you are looking for, we can assist here as well. We can work with you in a location of your choosing or provide professional advice around the best spots in and around Melbourne to achieve the style of image you are after.
I’d love to learn more about you and your family and would be honoured to capture you all in stunning and timeless photographs.
Our family photography Melbourne sessions are as unique and as wonderful as the families that come along to our studio. Whether you’re a young, fresh, slightly nervous family juggling babies and toddlers or a well-established, comfortable enough to pass wind in each other’s presence family unit, we can cater to you… And every dynamic in between.
As a rule of thumb, family photo shoots take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. But anyone with a family knows that anything can and does happen, so we adjust accordingly. If you have special requirements or a particularly large family, let’s chat and work out a perfect shoot for you.
Before your session, we’ll get together on the phone and plan out the day so it’s nothing short of perfect!
We’ll talk through what you had in mind for your session, who is coming along for the session, what image styles you are hoping to achieve, how you want to display or use your images and I’ll answer the most talked about topic… Family outfits!
We’ll also talk through all the concerns you have about family photography in melbourne. Tips to make the day run smoother and how you can get the whole tribe on board to create an awesome experience for everyone.
We don’t expect you to come to us knowing everything about photo shoots. As professionals, we’ll guide you through the process so you feel calm, confident and in control leading up to your session and during the shoot.
Remember, It’s our job to make your family look amazing. It’s your job to simply be amazing! And the best way to do that is to be yourselves.
But first things first. Give us a call and book in your family photography melbourne session! Because awesome family photos don’t happen by chance, they happen by appointment.
