FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSIONS.
Every family is different. You guys might be – Mum, Dad and the kids, a blended family or maybe you have managed to bring all your brothers, sisters, your Mum and Dad and all the grandkids together for an epic event…and sometimes it is you and your fur babies. No matter how and who makes up the people you love most, we want to make your family portraits gorgeous, memorable and fun!
Australian families tend to be relaxed and laid back and we love taking our families to some of our region’s great local outdoor locations. Most of our family portrait clients love the relaxed feel of an outdoor portrait, not only does it reflect our relaxed and casual nature it also provides the opportunity to include places that you love. It may be the front verandah of your family home, the back paddock near the dam or maybe it’s a spot along the river that your kids love to play.
We start out with the entire family as a group, usually this is the main image that you will showcase in your home. After that we work our way through all the different family groupings – all the kids together, Mum with all the kids, Dad with the kids, grandparents and siblings. Depending on the size of the group, your family portrait session should take approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
Worried about the kids? Yes, many of our clients have felt that way – never fear, we work with children every day of the week and have some tricks up our sleeves. Firstly we want to form a connection with them, the next trick is to get your family portrait done while keeping them engaged and involved…but not wearing them out! It’s a fine balance and we can help you with some tips and tricks that will make things flow more easily.
Another part of making your family portraits something special is your clothing and colour choices, we can help out there as well. When you book your family portrait we will talk through some ideas and send you a link to my Pinterest page that has some great colour and style co-ordinates that will give you inspiration for your portraits. We will even send you our exclusive “What Will I Wear” guide that talks about things to avoid and making choices that will be more flattering. Planning your family’s outfits for the occasion and making them all tie in together makes a huge difference to the end result!
