Erin Elizabeth Photography is a 100% natural light photographer, who offers award winning newborn and family portraiture. Newborn sessions take place at Erin’s Mullaloo studio, or for an additional travel fee, she can come to you using her portable studio (within 40km from Mullaloo). Newborn sessions must be done during the first 5-10 days of life, so it’s best to book your newborn session while you are still expecting.
For non-newborn sessions, an outdoor location normally works best. Other than your home or the local park, there are plenty of locations that would make a great backdrop for your family’s portraits – the beach, an urban street, a friend’s farm, even an old junkyard or graffitied building! Often times the best family photographs come from rather unconventional locations. Erin travels everywhere in Perth, so there are plenty of amazing locations to choose from. Since every child and family is unique, she would be happy to help you choose a location that suits your family’s personality. The early morning and late afternoon/early evening light works best for photographs taken outdoors.
Erin recommends allowing up to 1-2 hours (2-3 hours for newborns) for your child’s photographs to be taken. She encourages you to ensure your child is as well rested as possible with a full tummy. Children may play, draw, read, run around with Dad or siblings, and do whatever they would normally do if she wasn’t around. Depending on the child, your wishes, and the day, she may also take a more structured approach to the session. Kids being kids, they often get bored or tired easily, so short breaks for changing, snacks, or even just a chat are all part of the fun. It’s sometimes these moments that create the best images!
Erin Elizabeth Photography’s style is very relaxed, artistic, and candid. She will never ask for forced smiles or awkward poses. Her goal is to capture the personality of your child, and the love of your family in truly original artworks for your home. The smiles and giggles, the funny faces, and all the details that make your child and family unique. Great photographs don’t just show us the way we looked way back when, but rather who we were on the inside.
