MELBOURNE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY – OUR EXPERIENCE COUNTS
We have been full-time photographing Melbourne families for over five years. Our experience gives us the edge so that we can deliver the best images we can. You will always be relaxed at our photography sessions. Michelle has ten years experience as a primary teacher, which gives her a unique advantage over other photographers! We love to watch you and your family play, and capture all the joy as moments unfold. We prefer to direct rather than pose. This practice is the key to creating natural, warm and happy photographs. And of course makes your Melbourne family photography session a whole lot more fun!
WHY DO YOU NEED A FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER?
It’s easy in the age of the iPhone to fall into the trap of thinking that you don’t need a professional photographer. We know people think it is so easy to capture memories on your phone as they happen. But someone always has to use the camera phone to take an image. This leaves them out of the picture. More importantly, the quality of the sensors and lenses on camera phones aren’t up to scratch when it’s time to make prints. When you engage a professional family photographer, their professional equipment and artistic insights make all the difference. This will produce the best quality prints and memories for you. Your whole family is captured looking their absolute best at the time. A professional family photographer will also retouch each image. You don’t need to worry about little things like spills or spots that naturally occur when families play. It is essential to build a lasting relationship with your photographer. It will help your whole family to relax. This lends itself to beautiful, top quality images.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
There are many factors to consider when choosing your Melbourne family photographer. Price is the obvious starting point, but should never be the deciding factor. Like all things in life, you get what you pay for. Other factors to consider are style, expertise, professionalism and service. It is easy for anyone to buy a camera and a website and call themselves a “professional” photographer. The AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) are the only body in Australia fully accredited with the ACCC. They maintain a rigorous standard for the accreditation of photographers. Accredited photographers must hold minimum amounts of insurance, and conduct themselves according to the AIPP code of professional practice.
PLANNING YOUR MELBOURNE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
Like anything in life you need to plan so that you get good results. We have years of experience planning great Melbourne family photography sessions. We are full-time professional photographers, so we can be very flexible when it comes to scheduling your shoot. Planning the style of your family photography session in Melbourne is just as important (if not more!) than planning your time and location. We will advise you on how to style your shoot, and work with you if you have a specific theme in mind. Usually it is best to keep it simple when you dress the family. It is tempting to follow the latest trends, but sometimes those fashions don’t look so good further down the track!
MELBOURNE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY – OUR BAD WEATHER GUARANTEE
Part of planning your Melbourne family photography is being prepared for anything! The Melbourne weather can be unpredictable and change at any time. We know that no-one likes to stand around in the rain and cold. No one likes the extreme heat. That’s why we offer our “Bad Weather Guarantee” on all of our Melbourne family photography sessions. We will stay in contact with you right up to the day of your shoot, and if Melbourne turns the weather up to extreme, we will re-schedule your photography session free of charge! You and your family have complete peace of mind knowing that no matter what happens, or how long we have to wait for the weather to clear, we will deliver you stunning images from your session.
