If you’re looking to capture a special celebration, pure moment or even just a casual day out between you and your family, it may feel more affordable and easier to ask a friend to help out with the job. However, even if a family member or friend has a good camera, they may miss out on correctly coordinating the day to ensure that you have pure and natural family photographs for treasure forever.
As affordable family photography based in Melbourne, I understand it can be difficult to justify the high costs of professional, natural daily photography. However, some reasons that you should hire a professional photographer include:
While I like to keep my imagery as raw as possible to capture the natural moment in time. If your little one spills something on their shirt or the weather creates difficult lighting, you are guaranteed that the photo will still look just the way you envisioned it.
As a professional, I know all the ins and outs of photo editing, meaning that my touch-ups won’t impede on the raw emotion of the image. Rather, it will enhance all of the natural highlights and help you to see the true beauty in each photo.
Professionals work to a brief
Though you may give your friends or family a general brief about what you’re looking to create in your indoor or outdoor setting, a lack of understanding about various photography concepts may mean, through no fault of their own, that they fail to do so.
When you hire me to capture your natural family photo shoots, I will work with you to understand exactly what you are looking for. Whether you are looking to capture the essence of a specific emotion, remember a specific moment in time or place emphasis on objects, I will always work to incorporate your preferences within my style.
Help will be provided when needed
Let’s face it, coordinating little ones and family members into a perfect pose is difficult. If you are struggling to take control of the herd, a professional photographer is always happy to step in. I have experience working with children and have overcome episodes when young children decide they are ready to go home halfway through a shoot. Though it may seem difficult at first, I know how to embrace these moments, take charge and ensure that your shoot runs smoothly.
Happy to embrace your creative brief
Every family is different. Some have a deep love for art and others for music. Some love sports and others prefer to spend time indoors. No matter what your family loves and is looking for in your photoshoot, a professional is always happy to accommodate.
Though I specialize in natural family photography, if you are looking to add a creative or artistic twist to your photography, I am always happy to take your ideas on board. I have a variety of samples on offer where you can discover the way that I experiment with the camera and find a photography style that you love.
