Creative Family Photography
If you’re you looking for something a bit different for your family photography then you’re in the right place! Because creative family photography is for families who want include their personalities, their hobbies or obsessions, into their family portrait. And I’m super-excited to offer creative family photography for Brisbane families who want a family photo that’s quirky, unique or something that’s a bit more…well, you! After all, portraits are a reflection of you, your lifestyle and your loves. So my aim is to create a unique piece of artwork that tells your story and is one-of-a-kind. Just like you and your family.
The Regular Family Photo
For example, this is a normal family photo and I photograph families like this all the time. It shows this family having fun, laughing and interacting with their kids. Which is great! I love this photo and so does the family. But does it tell you anything about them?
The Storytelling Portrait
However, the creative family portrait tells a story. The same family above are featured below. Here we get a glimpse into their life. It’s a life where dad is absolutely car mad. He works in the car industry and spends all his spare time fixing and selling cars. His boys love hanging out with their dad, getting dirty, playing cars and helping dad fix things. The youngest boy is the mischievous one and his expression says it all! And mum just enjoys hanging out with the family, quietly observing what her boys are doing. As for the loyal dog Chevy, well, he’s just hanging out with the family.
This is what creative family photography is all about.
About the Session
Each creative family photography session will include a couple of pre-session consults in my studio, by email or by phone. Because we’ ll need to chat about the type of family photo you want and plan locations, styling, wardrobe and the overall theme. Don’t be afraid to think of the bizarre! Because I LOVE crazy! So if you’re a crazy cat family, we can absolutely include your 25 cats. And dog lovers? Bring it on! Anything and everything is possible in creative family photography and I’ll work with you to ensure that your crazy ideas are brought to life in a beautiful family photo. And remember, this creative family photography is about you and your family, so it should reflect each individual personality in the shoot.
The photography session will last about an hour, although this may vary depending on the complexity of the shoot. And remember, we’re aiming for one kick-ass family portrait, not an entire gallery like a regular family session. However, most creative family photos require some level of compositing in photoshop. Because of this, I’ll take a lot of photos during the shoot to complete the final family photo.
Depending on the complexity, some family photos will require a few hours of editing in Photoshop, while others, like the image below of a mad-keen gaming teen, took about 40 hours of compositing work in Photoshop.
The introductory price for these creative family photography Brisbane sessions is $495. This price includes the pre-session consult, the session, all editing required and $300 credit towards artwork. And my wall art starts from just $425 for a 14″ framed print. Because these awesome family photos NEED to be displayed on the wall. And BIG! And because I offer a range of products to suit all size prints and various home decor, the choice is yours. You can view a sample of my range of products here
