Fitzroy Family Photographer

And baby makes…SEVEN!

I recently met a beautiful family of 7, mumma, dad and their five children. Give these parents a medal! These sweet kids ranged from 1 to 15, and aren’t they just the best dressed family ever? This family had a fun morning in a beautiful Melbourne park for an outdoor family session where we got some great portraits that this family will cherish for a lifetime.

Family portraits

Kids really do grow up and change so fast, so capturing their personalities and cheeky faces is such a fun job for me. I spent time with the kids beforehand so they got to know me, playing in the leaves and not pulling the camera out until we had become mates. I then got the big kids together to hold and play with the little ones for some group photos which their parents really loved (scroll down for the highlights reel).

Natural and beautiful imagery 

As you can see from these photos, I’m all about natural story telling - yes we have some more “formal portraits” in the gallery, but the ones we gone always loves are the candid moments of the kids being themselves. These images are so heart warming - I love to see the connection between the siblings. There’s a great age gap between some of these kids which I’m sure is an awesome help for their parents. However, having said that I was secretly proud of myself for getting all 5 kids and their parents looking (& maybe even smiling!) in one photo which is always a challenge that I’m up for! Yes, being patient is a pre-requisite of the job! :)
