The Reyes Family | Documentary Family Photography in Melbourne

I met the Reyes family on a sunny day at Elwood Beach. We had a short session in the sand and at the park. This American family has been in Melbourne for a year! Three little boys make for some fun moments 🙂

Day in the Life – The Stewart Family

What are the best souvenirs for grandparents who come visit from the other side of the world?
Photos!
These grandparents decided a short day in the life session was the perfect way to document their time spent with their family. We went to the park, made pizzas, and spent quality time at home.

Here is a tiny sample of their four hour day in the life session in Hawthorn East.

Isabelle – 4 Years Old

In case you haven’t noticed already, my approach to portrait/family photography is a little bit different. I like to let kids be kids, and capture their real personalities. This is Isabelle, who recently turned 4! We did some typical posed shots first, but then we let her do her thing. And these are the pictures that I really love.
Sweet, crazy girl… keep being you 🙂
