Why You Should Get Family Photographs in Brisbane

Sept07I absolutely love family photographs and wish everyone would get them taken. It is a great time and everyone who gets their portraits taken finds it to be relaxing and just a wonderful time. Many times, I have clients who aren’t entirely sure just where they should get their family photos taken, and I am going to look at a few great locations. Getting family photographs in Brisbane makes for some gorgeous photos that you will be proud to show off and gives you the chance to get some wonderful, unique portraits. Let’s look at a few locations around Brisbane that are perfect for your family photographs.

  1. Brisbane and the Gorgeous Cityscape

A wonderful aspect about Brisbane is its gorgeous cityscape. I love taking family photographs in Brisbane and capturing the city in the background. It looks stunning and creates a wonderful atmosphere for families. We can go to locations to capture the entire city in the background, and we can even go into the city and capture lovely urban photos that are sure to make everyone in your family happy. In fact, this is perfect for teenagers as they tend to be more relaxed when going to older buildings and getting photos that look edgy. 

  1. Jacarandas Make for a Gorgeous Backdrop

Jacarandas are simply stunning, aren’t they? They make for a lovely backdrop, and I’ve taken several photos of families with laneways lined with jacarandas. This can add a gorgeous touch to any photo, and the colour will simply pop from the photos. I have many clients who love their photos that incorporate gorgeous jacarandas and are immensely proud of them. 

  1. The Gold Coast Provides Beautiful Portraits for Families

If you like beach photography, then the Gold Coast is the perfect place. It allows for people to relax and wear their favourite clothing while running around the beach. This is great for young children because they get to play around the whole beach with the ocean in the background. You will find that when getting family photographs in Brisbane, this is a perfectly wonderful idea. 

  1. The Kangaroo Point Cliffs Create Stunning Photos

If you want to capture the whole Brisbane cityscape, or just want to capture some stunning scenery, then the Kangaroo Point Cliffs are a perfect location. I love taking portraits here because this location provides a beautiful setting that all families adore. You can also get gorgeous photos of the river, and we can go down to it for great family portraits. This is perfect if you have a boat you would like to get portraits taken on, or just want to have some family fun down by the river.

Brisbane Settings for Photographing Children

Sept74The one truth that remains the same is that children would much rather participate in photographs when they are able to run around and be themselves. If they are in a studio, they feel confined and are oftentimes told not to touch anything. This stops them from enjoying the session, stifling them, keeping those gorgeous, natural looking photos from being taken. This is why shooting a session outside is a perfect idea for children. I am going to look at a few Brisbane settings that will work amazingly for photographing your children.

1. Big Trees And Caves For Exploration

Big trees and caves offer an excellent opportunity to allow children to pretend they are looking for fairies or dinosaurs. I love helping little girls look for fairyland and capturing their gorgeous smiles as they start searching. I remember telling one little boy that I thought there were dinosaurs in a small cave, he was quite excited, and I captured some stunning images. When you engage their imagination, you will get some of the most magnificent portraits. 

2. Climbing Trees

Climbing gorgeous fig trees or other trees is a perfect portrait opportunity. It is one that is unique, and it will also be wonderful for children. This gives them the ability to play and just be themselves without the stuffiness of a studio or posed shots. I am able to capture their cheeky grins and their beautiful personalities as they are climbing and playing. This helps distract your children from the fact that they are being photographed, which will help them not feel awkward as the portraits are snapped. By doing something like this, I am able to capture them in the best and most natural setting, creating excellent images that you will cherish forever. 

3. Natural Hiding Spots

When photographing small children who feel awkward standing in front of the camera or staring at the lens, finding settings around Brisbane with natural “hiding” spots will be a perfect portrait opportunity. This allows the kids to feel like they are hiding from me, which allows me to capture some adorable portraits of them peeking around the corners of old walls. This can work with old buildings and walls, trees, flowers – the possibility is endless. Whichever place we choose will be perfect to capture gorgeous smiles and adorable eyes staring out at me. 

4. Fields, Old Sheds, and Vehicles Are Perfect

I did one session with a family in a field and around some old sheds; it was gorgeous. I was able to capture the children running around the field, playing and having a wonderful time. The old sheds also offered incredible photographs that were simply stunning. Old vehicles are another great setting for children. I had one young boy who loved fire trucks and other vehicles. I was able to find a location with stunning old cars and trucks, taking his portrait there. The images turned out incredible, and he had a wonderful time. These are great ideas as they can let the child have a fun time, imagine different things, and just being relaxed overall.
