Your Family Session
Family is the most precious and unquantifiable gift that we are privileged to experience in life. My father’s huge boxed collection of slides of our family life and my childhood, along with the irreplaceable memories of my own family’s journey, are priceless to me and reminders of a rich and full life.
We live in a fast, digital era of high volume, easily accessible and disposable imagery. Our most meaningful milestones are reduced to a quick iPhone snap that is inevitably poorly taken, never saved and worse of all never again seen. Our family sessions are dedicated to honouring the practise of classic, heirloom family portraiture at all stages of life.
We approach family portraiture with a minimalist, elegant and classic style to create timeless, quality pieces that you can enjoy every day in your home. We pride ourselves on creating family heirlooms that will be passed on from generation to generation.
Mothers feature heavily in our family sessions. It’s what makes our family photography unique and why our clients choose us. Motherhood is without a doubt the most extraordinary and phenomenal journey a woman undertakes in her life. So much has been said of Motherhood in our history and literature and it remains without a doubt the most fierce, inexplicable and unconditional of all human love and connection.
Incorporating motherhood into our family sessions is about celebrating the magic that happens when a woman becomes a mother, her fierce and unconditional love for her cubs and the evolution of her journey as a mother as her children grow and find their place in the world. All of our mum’s are absolutely blown away by their exclusive motherhood images and feel incredibly nourished by the experience and the opportunity to pause and relish in her greatest love and accomplishment - her children.
Our Family sessions are scheduled in the morning and provide each family with a relaxed, un-rushed 2 - 3.5 hours of fun. Our sessions include Mum, Dad and immediate children. Extended families are welcome, in fact capturing generations is priceless. Groups greater than 6 attract a $50 per person fee. A lot of our families return every couple of years to capture the evolution of their family and enjoy their children through each stage of their development.
Our studio is unique and niched in it’s custom designed, boutique service and premium experience. Our work is not high volume nor mass produced, we take the time to listen and understand you and design a session just for you. Your session includes a consultation with Analia where ideas on lighting, wardrobe and style are discussed including your expectations and goals in terms of your final artwork.
All of our work centres around producing timeless, elegant imagery that go on to become family heirlooms to be enjoyed for years to come. What you decide to wear depends entirely on you and your personal style. During your consultation we discuss how you want to be photographed and what to wear to best capture you and your family. For the ultimate classic interpretation the studio carries beautiful fabrics and lace, as well as interesting pieces of jewellery to create unique, elegant imagery. Our approach is founded in minimalist principles and is designed to give your work a timeless fine art edge.
All work is beautifully retouched and edited with a view to producing a natural, clean, fresh look. Our retouching is all done in house to safeguard quality and consistency of style and finish.
Approximately 2 weeks after your photoshoot you will return to the studio to view your images. Viewing appointments are scheduled in the afternoon and require a minimum of 1hr. At your viewing appointment you will see 20 - 30 fully edited images. We work with you to design the artwork that best suites you and your home. All of our beautiful, Australian hand made, industry grade product is on display in the studio. Your art work can be purchased in one of three ways ie.
