Studio & Outdoor Family Photos | The Best of Both!

When Jenevere got in touch with me about her long-anticipated family portrait, she was undecided between studio & outdoor family photos. The studio provides a lovely clean backdrop with the focus on the family, and it’s not dependent on the weather. An outdoor location gives a beautiful natural background with opportunities for the kids to run and play and interact with their environment.

With the studio located just a few hundred metres from some lovely bushland, I suggested we do both!

Before I share their gorgeous images, I couldn’t resist taking this photo of Julian, who came in from the car mid-nap, and decided it wasn’t time for photos yet. More napping to be done! He is soooo adorable!

So the first half of this session was in the studio. There are so many gorgeous photos to choose from, so here are just a few.

I always encourage parents to have a couple of photos together too. Often it’s at the start of the session to relax the kids (they help me take the photos, make mum & dad laugh, etc.).

The outdoor portion of the session was a little shorter. Great photos don’t tend to happen when little ones are tired and cranky! We focussed on getting some family shots and the boys together. In the late afternoon sun, the images worked out beautifully! So much personality from these kids!

I love the connection in this one!

And this is the lovely family shot they chose to frame for their wall. Love love love!
