Family Photographer Melbourne

Family photographer Melbourne.

Family photos are one of people’s most treasured possessions. As your family grows it’s important to update your photos to document each milestone, each individual personality and your family’s ever-changing interests. Jacinta Stuios, family photographer Melbourne  has any of our clients return yearly for an updated family photograph and I love nothing more than producing creative, personalised and unique artwork for display throughout their home.

When to book

Family/portrait/fine art sessions: “As soon as possible,” Jacinta Studios, family photographer Melbourne fills very quickly especially through the busy seasons of autumn and spring. The more time you give yourself to prepare for your session the better. At Jacinta Studios we will guide you through each step of your portrait session, your outfit choices, location, and overall style we are going for. The earlier you book your session the more time we have to perfect the overall outcome.

Where does your family session take place?

This is one of the steps Jacinta Studios will take you through on our pre consultation. We will go through what locations best suit your family. Whether it be a beach, forest, urban city, inside your own home or even Luna Park! We will work with you to help you decide the best possible location for your family.

The common question. What to wear?

As far as clothing, keep it simple. Throw in a little colour if you’d like, think layers patterns and textures that will complement each other, accessories like a hat, scarf, vest as this will add a golden touch to your images, avoid the busy patterns and please don’t feel the need to match everyone in white shirts. Choose colours and styles that coordinate with the choice of your outfits and the location we are heading too. Avoid logo or branded clothing as this will date and take away from your family. Your wardrobe must reflect you, if you love what you’re wearing that confidence will shine through your imagery.

What happens on your session day?

Each family session lasts around 1 to 1.5 hours and the session will be a relaxed and fun-filled afternoon for the whole family. I love connecting with my clients and I’ll work with you to capture authentic, emotive and real moments of your family.
Family portrait sessions are a mixture of posed portraiture and lifestyle photography. However, the entire purpose of photography is to capture emotion and authentic moments between you and your loved ones. Whether that’s a crying toddler, a screaming baby or a surly teenager, these moments are authentic and exactly how your child was right at that moment. So, don’t worry if the children run amok. That’s real! So many of my clients have fallen in love with these natural moments because those photos tell a story. And after all, isn’t that what family photography is all about?

What happens after your session?

After your family session you’ll return to the studio to view your gallery slideshow, the viewing takes place approximately 2-3 weeks after your session.
During the design consultation we’ll discuss wall art, your home’s décor and what you plan to do with your photographs.
To help you visualise your artwork in your home, I’ll design wall concepts and albums to make the decision-making process easier on you.
Your beautiful art work will then be ready for collection approximately 3-6 weeks after your order is placed.

Can I purchase the digital files?

All of Jacinta Studios collections include both your printed art work along with the matching digital file. We believe that what we will capture for you deserves to be displayed on the best quality professional products.


An initial investment of $200 covers a pre-session consultation to discuss your session and includes, my time and my talent, along with your design consultation. No products or images are included in this fee. Jacinta studios offers a carefully selected range of fine art products and collections at the highest quality. For this very reason our clients return to us every year due to the service we deliver.
