“I can’t believe I waited so long!”: Overdue Family Portraits in Melbourne

 

What people mean the most to you in your life – what people do you think about most, confide in most, know the most about and trust to know the most about you? Is it your coworkers? Your friends? Your neighbors? Your drycleaners?

I think you get where I’m going with this!

You wouldn’t need a full second to have the true answer to that question: your family. Sure, some of the above people may be like family in some ways, but none of them are your blood, the people who know you like the back of their hands. (Well, maybe your closest friends do!)

cormack-23 cormack-24 cormack-28 If it’s been a long time since you’ve done something special to commemorate your love of family, to show your parents, siblings, children, spouse, or other members how you really feel about them, maybe you too are overdue for family portraits, and Melbourne’s best is here to help remedy that!

 

The bond of families may not change over time, but families do change over time. Kids grow up, more kids are born, elders get older, looks change, and on and on. If you don’t take a moment to stop and look at your loved ones, the next thing you know you’ll barely recognize them. Family portraits are the best way to keep up, and you can do it right here in Melbourne.

Here at Five Castles, I go through great lengths to make sure that my family portraits are like no other Melbourne family portrait photographer’s. I capture your family as your family really is, not how I think they should look. With candid shots in meaningful locations and no unnatural posing, my sessions will provide portraits that you can hold on to, look back at, and really remember what your family was like then – and appreciate who they are to you now. During our initial consultation we will find that thing that defines each of you, be it sports, music or anything else that can be photographed.

You won’t believe you’ve waited this long, but don’t wait any longer! Contact me today on 0467676205 and we’ll talk about what to expect in a free introductory consultation.

“I Have Only the 3 of Them”: Meaningful Family Portraits in Melbourne

 

During these fast-paced, ever-changing times, nothing stays the same for long. For all the technological advancements and achievements around us, it can somehow be harder than ever to keep up with what’s most important to us: our families and, for parents, our children.

 

They’re in one minute, out the door the next. They’re here one day, moved out the next. They’re still kids one year, having kids of their own the next. Before time slips away from you too much, it’s important to capture those times you have together to cherish for all the times you’re apart.

Melbourne's most meaningful family photography

Recently I had a shoot with a single mum – her kids were her world. “I have only the three of them” she said to me, and for many parents (single or not), the number may be different, but the sentiment is the same. It was a truly touching moment for me as a photographer to hear her say that and to see how much it meant to her to have lasting, heart-felt moments with her kids to hold on to in a very tangible way.

My approach to Melbourne family portraits is and always will be to attempt to capture genuine moments of affection. I firmly believe that photography is a powerful way to keep those you love close to you, and always strive to capture people relating to those they love just as they always do. These spontaneous, natural shoots stand for decades after as testaments to people’s most valuable, meaningful relationships.

 

If you’re a parent and, like my recent client, see your kids as your world, consider holding on to them as they are now with incredible portraits that will last a lifetime. Contact me by calling 0467676205 today to see how to get started!

Step into {our} Life Calendar Revealed

Step into {our} Life Calendar Revealed

Thank you all for patience!

I know how excited you must be to see the images that made it into the calendar but first let me remind you what it was all about.

Last year trainers from Step into Life Berwick and Five Castles Portraits have organised a fund-raising initiative, in which we produced a unique calendar featuring the many personalities of “lifers” showing us all how training with Step into Life affects their day… We’ve also been teasing you all here by posting “sneak peaks” from the sessions, the images took you behind the scenes of the shoots and were posted in black and white not to reveal too much…(Head on to our other posts to see the “Making Of…“. Well the wait is over and below you’ll find the final images as they appeared in the calendar.

Please keep in mind that all those sessions were conceptualised and organised by us and were only possible thanks to all those who helped on the day behind and in front of the camera. It was a community project that helped us donate a substantial amount of money to Wild Days Wildlife Shelter. Money that are so needed to keep the operation alive and keep the injured animals warm, clean, fed and healthy.

We’ve sold nearly a 100 copies of the calendar so far and have only several left however we’re still accepting requests and are able to print on demand so don’t be shy and contact us to get your copy.

But that’s not all, this Friday we’re having a special event at the Five Castles Portraits Gallery. We’re revealing the images that did not make it to the calendar. The amazing photographs that had to be left out but are worthy of a wall space. If you can find yourself in the hills on Friday the 13th of March, please feel welcome to come by and meet some of the people behind this project.

Arrive between 6 and 8 pm, park on the corner of Judkins Ave and Park Dr and head up to 26 Park Dr, Belgrave to the Five Castles Portraits Gallery.

Young Parents: Capture Your Baby Boy’s Childhood with Melbourne Family Portraits

Young Parents: Capture Your Baby Boy’s Childhood with Melbourne Family Portraits

Foreword: This is a second part of Duke’s story, see how happy Duke’s parents were even before he was born… 

There are few things more thrilling in this world than having your first child – but if you are a young parent, you probably didn’t need us to tell you that! In the weeks, months and even years since, it isn’t likely that that excitement has worn off much, but before you know it, your baby boy won’t be much of a baby anymore.

So why not capture this very special time in not only your son’s life, but in your life as a young parent, with family photography here in Melbourne?

Children must grow up

Inevitably, children must grow up, and your beautiful son will be a “little man” eventually. With a wonderful portrait session, however, you can have these moments to look back on as they truly are for years to come as you watch him grow into a man right before your eyes.

But these aren’t photography sessions like any other you’ve likely seen before. Our sessions are highly custom to the point that no two family portraits ever look alike. What works for your young family does not necessarily work the same for any other young family, and we understand that. That’s why we won’t try to force you into poses and backgrounds everybody else is using, but instead go to locations that mean a lot to your family and document how you really interact together as a natural family. No poses, no generic portraits.

Don’t let it slip away

Don’t let this incredible time slip away from you before you can truly appreciate it. You will love having portraits to look back on and reminisce over together, recalling what it felt like to be in this incredibly unique part of your life – and your son’s.

Step into {our} Life Berwick – Calendar behind the scenes | Nadia and Sarah

We have only one session to go before we have all the images for the “Step into {our} Life” calendar, featuring the characters of Step into Life Berwick. For now enjoy the sneak peek Behind the Scenes photoshoot, remember that while the calendar will be in color, those images are in Black and White and in disguise- they’ll give you an idea about the calendar and the fun we have photographing it but they won’t reveal too much before it’s all ready and printed. We’re leaving the best for later!

As we announced before, all proceeds from the calendar are going to help the Wild Days Wildlife Shelter (like their page please!) they are a voluntary non-profit wildlife shelter for the care, rehabilitation and release of injured, sick and orphaned Australian native wildlife. It’s a small operation run by a lady with a huge heart, from a small house in Narre Warren, currently caring for over 70 injured animals.

Everyone who trains with us at Step into Life Berwick will recognise the two ladies featured here. Sarah may the one of the most deserving people to be in the calendar- her determination and sacrifice helped her overcome many obstacles; Nadia on the other hand is the most gentle and caring person many of us know. But what those girls are really into is shopping…

The Brief: Girls have been shopping and now need to use their strength to take all the loot home…
The Location: Behind Timbarra shopping centre

Please support this project by liking our Facebook page.

We would also appreciate if you considered how many of our amazing calendars you’d like to order. There a great idea for every loo in the house, you can use them at the office, give them away for X-mass- every $ counts. It looks like we’ll be charging $25 for the first calendar (every additional calendar is $15), please comment or FB to register your interest.
