Our Family Photography is about capturing the love within your family. We believe family should be celebrated with beautiful family portraits.
Your session begins with a MakeOver by our Professional Makeup Artist. Our Makeup Artist will create a look that is perfect for you. She will take the time to talk about how you normally wear your makeup and how you would like to look. You are welcome to bring examples of makeup and hair that you like. TIP: There are plenty of these to be found on Pinterest.
The Photo Shoot
The Photo shoot takes place in our Private Photo Studio in Stanhope Gardens, your home or location. We capture your family interacting with one another, and sharing playful moments together. Catherine guides you through the shoot, directing, posing and helping you have fun and feel relaxed. The shoot takes around 1.5 hours, and at its completion you have a 1 hour break for lunch. You will need it by then!
After lunch you return to the studio for your Viewing. This is your opportunity to view your images and choose the ones you love. You will get to view them in both Colour and Black & White, and a variety of photo filters. Catherine will help you select the best images, including the right sizes and finishes to suit your home and interior decor.

What to Wear
Outfits are important when it comes to Family Portraits. The first step is to work out what styles of photography you would like to achieve. Do you want a casual relaxed family portrait or a more glamourous one? During your family shoot, we do 2-3 different outfits changes. This allows you to have a variety of family portraits: relaxed & casual, glamourous, formal, fun & silly, whatever you like. Generally, the aim is to have outfits that work together and compliment each other.
A Family Portrait shoot is a fun activity to do as a family. But even more than that, it captures memories that will be treasured year after year.
