Let's create some long lasting memories for your family. My sessions are fun filled, relaxed and give your children room to be themselves. Together we will create some magical moments of joy and connection and I will capture images that you and your children will treasure for years to come.
You have the choice of a lifestyle session in the comfort of your own home or a sunset outdoor session on a location. Whether you love the beaches and cliffs down the coast, the gorgeous Dandenong Ranges, your own family farm or huge open field. Melbourne has lots to offer. Together we can work out exactly what look and feel you are after.

Janine books very limited numbers each month, please book 6-8 weeks in advance to avoid disappointment. A deposit of $300 is due at time of booking to secure your chosen session date. The balance is due the week of your session. Sessions include immediate family members only. In addition to your session images, you are able to order high quality print products through your private gallery. Convenient and affordable.
Please get in touch with me via the contact form to discuss my service as a Melbourne family photographer. Once you have decided on a date for your session I will forward you a standard portrait session agreement as well as an invoice. Your session is logged in as soon as you've paid the deposit towards the session fee and filled in the agreement. From there we will have a chat and work out exactly what feel and look you are after, go over locations, outfits and any other questions you might have.
I travel to your home for your family or newborn photo session to capture the real essence of your family. I offer my service as a family photographer to all inner Melbourne suburbs, such as Richmond, South Yarra, Hawthorn, Fitzroy and Malvern as well as outer suburbs from Williamstown to the Mornington Peninsula. On location family sunset sessions are available all over Victoria. I love to travel to gorgeous wide open fields, beaches or family farms.
In home family lifestyle sessions are a special way to create some lasting memories of your family life in your own environment. Children usually feel more confident in their own home. In home sessions can be done at any time of the day, I suggest 10am or 2:30pm depending on your child’s naps. Outdoor sessions are striclty done at sunset due to light conditions. If you love the golden light you see in my photos I recommend an on location family sunset portrait session. Whether your family loves the beach, hiking in the hills, having a picnic in a big open field, spending some time on your families farm or exploring the city lane ways. Melbourne’s scenery has a lot to offer. I travel all over Melbourne to create a unique and special memory for you and your loved ones.
Keep it simple. Most important is to be comfortable and to be yourself. Since this is a relax and fun session, keep it casual. For a family I suggest to pick 3-4 colours and dress everyone in those tones without being matchy-matchy. I would pick 2-3 neutral tones like white, grey, blue/olive and one colour that pops like mustard, red or yellow. Natural tones photograph really well. I love floral pattern, stripes, textures and layers. But if you are more of a plain person, keep it simple. Please stay away from black and logos/prints on clothing. If you are unsure about your choice, send me some photos through. I am here to help.
If the weather isn't suitable for a family photo session or your child is sick we will postpone your session without any extra charge. Please get in touch as soon as possible to organise a new session date.
After your family session I will go home, edit and select your gallery images. You will receive an online proofing gallery within 2 weeks of your session with about 50 images. Once the full session fee has been paid, I will release your family images for instant download. If you decide on a collection that includes print products, you will receive those after approximately 4-8 weeks after ordering.
