Outdoor Family Portraits in Camperdown

Sharing Family Memories together

Outdoor sessions are the perfect choice for young families. Plenty of space and many exciting things for your little ones to explore. Sometimes studio sessions aren’t as well suited for younger children as they become board quickly. All they wan’t is to run around.  Being located in Camperdown, we’re spoilt for choice on shoot locations.

“I will help you remember this special time in your lives for years to come each time you walk through your living room and glance
at the wall”.

Golden Hour

These images have gorgeous soft golden tones. The lighting is stunning. This is because sessions are held one hour before sunset and it’s well worth the wait. I have great tips if you’re worried about your kids staying up late and missing their usual bed time. I promise it will work! I haven’t had a kid go troppo on me yet.

Always Photogenic

I’m very aware that most families feel very nervous and worried they’ll look awkward in photos. It’s my job to make you feel comfortable so you can be yourself. One way I make sure of this, is to remind you that you are here for each other, to spend beautiful moments with each other. I’ve asked parents to ignore me and to play games, talk and cuddle their kids then everything comes so easily. It’s my job to direct you and to make you feel comfortable.

I love working with children, it’s what I do and I have many tricks to make the session fun and to get genuine smiles. Don’t worry about your child only giving the fake ‘cheese’ smiles. We’ll warm up to getting their true personalities.

Jess Who?

I’m a mum of two young kids Bonnie and Rueben. I live in beautiful Camperdown Victoria and my family commitments have me offering only a VERY LIMITED session per month. This allows me to give you a customised experience and the time and care you deserve. Here’s more on why I do what I do with My Story on becoming a photographer. I’m so passionate about families. I absolutely LOVE doing this for you, its an amazing experience for me too, to see the connections you have with your family.

If you’re thinking of a session we’d love to hear from you! When you’ve checked out this gorgeous gallery use the details at the end of this post to book.
