Beach Family Photo Shoot!
After you've booked your session I work with you to find the best location for your family photo shoot. A place that you frequently visit where the children love to play to keep them occupied and have fun. I love finding new locations and this particular park, Fairfield Park & Boat House by the Yarra River was just gorgeous. Who would guess having lived in Melbourne all my life that there are still hidden gems to find!
What a delight it was meeting this family. Natural, simple photography in your home. This family have welcomed a beautiful baby boy who is now 3 months old and has the cutest grin. Little 'P' loves being a big sister and loved showing me her room and toys. I try to keep photo shoots simple only using your props in your home that makes it real to who you are now. Here's a small peek....
To make a technically good photo we're taught to always aim for strong focus in every shot but the creative side in me loves out of focus as it can evoke a feeling in it's own way.
Focus, composition, and light are very important aspects to consider when taking a photo but sometimes you can break the rules. One of those rules is called 'Freelensing'.
Freelensing involves removing your lens from the camera and tilting it slightly which gives photos a very blurred, soft look. To me Freelensing produces an almost dream like feel to the photos, a softness to the image giving it an impressionistic feel. Photos can either have a select focus point or all out of focus. It almost gives the photo a vintage feel, a little bit of mystery whereby the viewer can interpret their own story from the image.
If you like this look let me know and I'll make sure to take a few images Freelensed during your photo session.
