Adelaide portrait photographyMeet the beautiful Isla – those golden curls and big blue eyes, not to mention the infectious personality.  Isla spent some time with me yesterday in Botanic Park for her family portrait session with mum and dad.  Photographing kids is always lots of fun, you never know where a session will take you.  Most children love running and exploring (code for finding muddy puddles), there are trees to climb, leaves to collect and as a photographer I love capturing the curiosity and excitement. Every child is different and each and every one will find something new, exciting and interesting to play with.  I love capturing the purity and innocence of a child.

Family portraits Botanic ParkSome of my favourite images from sessions are those where children are so engaged in what they are doing, they forget there is even a camera present. Collecting a large pile of Autumn leaves with your brother and throwing them at each other is much more fun than smiling for a camera – any day! Isla needed no warming up for her session, she was happy to chat with me about anything and everything, a gorgeous confident little lady.  Botanic park in Adelaide is always a favourite place for family photos, at the moment there is lots of lovely winter light shining through the trees that are ready to welcome spring and burst into life over the next few weeks. During our session yesterday there were patches of light that resembled portrait studio lighting.  I love creating family photographs with outdoor light without having the drag the studio along.

From now until November, its a great time to get the kids out in the park and update the family photos – they always prove popular for Christmas presents as well.  To see all the images from Isla’s session we would love you to visit our ever growing portrait gallery.

Portrait ideas for teenagers As the years pass by so quickly these days, family photos hold a special place in our hearts.  We look back on them fondly and reminisce over the tiny details and how quickly our children have grown.  Just recently my almost 3 year old has started telling me “I’m your best friend mummy”.  It makes my heart melt every time, and I know in a few short years that will be replaced by “whatever mum” – a harsh reality for any mum!

You want to capture these precious days, the innocence and purity in your children.  Where do you start looking for family portrait ideas to create some beautiful family photos?

You want an image that will stand the test of time and not look back in 15 years and think – that was a wacky photoshop effect from the turn of the century!  More importantly you want classic clothing (and we all know that fashion goes in cycles) that although the cut of the jeans will probably date, jeans in themselves will always be jeans.

Here is a link to a couple of site I think have some great advice for “what to wear” for a family portrait session



Some sound and solid advice from these websites, don’t you think?
