Modern City – Melbourne Family Photoshoot
We decided to go a little dressy for this photoshoot. It’s a city location and we wanted a contrast to our previous beach shoots. Styling is so important with photo shoots, whether you choose to go with simple or a more extravagant style. Just make sure all family members are dressed to compliment each other!
Like everyone else, we have to book photographers for our own family photo shoot, especially for the shots where we are all together. It’s not easy to be our photographer as we really love to be in control of how we want our images! That’s why we enlisted the help of good photographer friends. In this case, it was Michelle and Ben from Pause the Moment Photography who agreed to use our equipment and let us do the editing.
Kids photos in Melbourne
For the shoot, we’d take photos of the kids and each other. The only prop we took along to this photo shoot was a vintage camera which we had lying around at home. This worked well in giving our little man something to do as kids get easily bored during photo shoots. We’ll always keep in mind to take along props which are fun to play with. It also makes taking nice photos a little easier. The photos of him using the camera are some of our favourites!
While we do prefer the beach and parks for the ease of the locations, it’s really lovely to use the city skyline as well. Not all city areas offer such a quiet space with a clean background to photograph. The Docklands is one of those spots but it’s quickly developing and getting denser. In quieter times, Southbank and Federation Square are also good locations around the city.
