Family Portrait Photography      Melbourne
Do you need an updated family portrait? Come along to our mini-sessions! Mini-sessions are short 30 minute photo sessions for up to 6 people – perfect for families with little ones who can’t sit still for too long!

What's Included?
A regular portrait session can cost upwards of $1000, but for $200 you’ll receive 15 professionally edited digital files (chosen by you) in a download gallery (in your choice of colour or black and white), which will be shared with you after the session. You'll also have the option to purchase extra files after the session if you want to.

You can then print out your photos as many times as you like, in whatever size you like.

Professional photographer Kate Sheffield will capture beautiful, natural moments between you and your family. However, if you’d prefer just some photos of the kids by themselves that’s fine too!

It’s a great way for mum and dad to get out from behind the camera and into some photos with the kids.

I would really like to thank you for the session. It was such an easy and informal way to get some family shots. Kate and her assistant were amazing. They made everyone feel comfortable. It was the most enjoyable photo shoot I have had. And I hadn't even planned on being in the photos!

5/5 by Blaz Persich
It was a beautiful day, we had such fun, looking forward to receiving the photos soon.
5/5 by Lena Fox
The session was so perfect for our active 3 year old and also our 1 year old who's just started walking. You really nailed it with 30 minute sessions, I don't think 1 minute longer would have worked for us. The amount of photos Kate was able to take in that time was terrific, we were pleasantly surprised. I can't wait to get some photos printed and on our walls.
5/5 by Susan Roberts
We had a great time, it was fun, quick & easy with a great result.

5/5 by Jason Hay
Great idea and very well run. We had fun and appreciate all the time and ideas for photos
5/5 by Barbara Jasper
Professional and unrushed. I was initially worried about the time constraints, particularly with a small child and other families ruining late and encroaching on our time. But this was far from the case. Very enjoyable session despite the weather.
