I like to call it non posing! | Family Lifestyle Photography Melbourne

I thought I'd write a post about how I pose or not pose family photography.  My aim is to create an environment in which families can connect and interact, not so much posing but natural, real moments.   

I do though have some "go to" poses that I use to help guide families so they relax in front of the camera and not feel at a loss as to what to do.  They  can include walking and holding hands, kids on shoulders, looking at each other, tickling each other, whispering secrets in their Mum or Dad's ear, sitting as close as can be together, laying down, Mum or Dad looking at their child up in the air, cheek to cheek, Mum with the kids, Dad with the kids, siblings playing, individual shots of the children. 

So as you can see there are a number of different 'poses' that don't involve the 'say cheese' shots looking at the camera.  The photos that you'll cherish are the ones where you are not concerned about the camera but the interaction and love you have for one another.

Meet You at the Park...! | Natural Baby and Family Photography Melbourne

I feel so honoured when clients refer their friends to me for a photo shoot.  I am so grateful that you trust me with your precious little ones and feel so incredibly lucky to call this my job.

Kristina decided she would like to have their photo session at the local park and we couldn't have asked for better weather.  Little Lawton has the most infectious smile.   Every time the camera was pointed at him he just smiled at me.  He's a natural Mum and Dad!

When Karen rang me to book a photo session she asked if she could also bring their family dog Wilson.  I love including animals in family photo shoots as they are a huge part of the family as well.  Oh my gosh how cute are these children and Wilson the Beagle was such a trouper posing with the family.  Hope you enjoy your preview!

12 Week Baby Girl! | Natural Family and Children's Photography Melbourne

I've been receiving a lot of bookings lately from panicked parents fearing that they've left it too late to have newborn photos taken.  With Lifestyle photography it doesn't matter how old your child is as Lifestyle is natural and of real moments of who you are now.  I can always fix baby's skin rashes, etc. in Photoshop if need be.

Little baby Ida is absolutely adorable and at 12 weeks already has the most gorgeous personality and smile.

It might be cold here at the moment but when the sun comes out what better place to have a family photo shoot than down at the local park playing with the ducks, looking for fairies and playing on the swings.

Bonfire!! | Family Photography Melbourne

What better way to spend a chilly Autumn evening during the school holidays than toasting marshmallows in the fire pit in the backyard.  Children love to do this (and get's them off the video games without too much hassle)!!
