When it comes to family portrait photography it’s knowing what to expect that gives me the opportunity to capture gorgeous photos like these of Michelle, Cy and Nadine. Michelle had come into the studio previously to get a new branding headshot for work. You could say the headshot session was a very relaxed affair. I got to know a little more about Michelle who was originally from America and had called Melbourne home f
It is a privilege being able to document key moments in a family’s history. Reshmi and Kevin’s had given me this privilege. in 2010, when I photographed their amazing hindu wedding. The next chapter came when the handsome Henry joined the family. Incorporating Reshmi’s rich indian heritage, Henry was captured wrapped in his mums red wedding sari, at his new born session. Henry’s personality started to s
Quality lighting is one of the keys to great family portrait photography. Working with studio lights provides me with the ability to create a variety of artistic looks based on the vision I have for the final family portrait. Varun contacted me about capturing his family’s portrait and was interested in seeing whether a close up of Arya and Mayan faces, with the focus on their eyes, would show some of their inner world. Was in
Family photography for me has always been about documenting a point in history that, as a parent, goes away too quickly. In 2007 I photographed the gorgeous Lily with mum Kristina. Since then mum and dad decided that Lily would also like a sister Zara in 2009, sister Eva in 2012 and sister Ruby in 2013. Each girl has such a distinctive warm personality along with their gorgeous long hair. The youngest, Ruby, is on her way to
There are times when someone see an amazing image and tells the photographer, that their camera really takes great photos. Thought I’ll test this theory to see if it’s the type of camera used, or a photographer’s knowledge and years of experience in lighting, composition and exposure, that creates an amazing image. Set up a controlled experiment in the studio where, lighting, background, subject matter (me, yes not that exciti
Henry could be the definition of cute especially when it comes to baby portrait photography. After his newborn session last year, it was time to continue Henry’s first year on the planet story with a 6-month photo session. Had seen some of his gorgeous photos on Facebook, that Reshmi had taken, and knew I was in for a photographic treat when they arrived at the studio. Henry wasn’t too keen at the beginning until h
We saw the three elements of our business, Wedding, Portrait, Commercial, as three little kids who where growing up too fast and needed their own space to express their individuality. We approached Malt Creative to help us expand the existing website and diversify the three core areas of our business via a new landing page. Our brief was something clean, and contemporary that expressed the true value and emotion we have for p
It was a Sunday afternoon. Just had lunch with my two kids, Andre and Kyra, while Gina was having some retail therapy in the city. Noticed I still had my tripod in the car as well as my Leica Delux6 when the creative bug bit me. Have been working on a concept of multiple repetitive subjects within the one still frame to express the passing of time. By having the same subject appear in multiple places within the one landscap
There is something very regal about Louis the French Poodle when Antoinette brought him in to the studio. I’m sure he was sussing me out with some of the looks he gave and had no problem being infront of the camera.
It was a pleasure, as always, catching up with Kristine and Jason since photographing their wedding a few years ago. Only now there was a new star on stage, their adorable baby daughter Zara. She was just gorgeous to photograph, very inquisitive and fascinated by the studio lights flashing.
