Boyup Brook Lifestyle Family Photography | Michelle Wrighton

As a lifestyle family, children and pet portrait photographer, I find it is helpful to know a little about the people and pets I photograph, their personalities and unique traits.  This is why I have a questionnaire for my clients to fill in before their session - the answers also help me to plan and customise the experience to suit my clients individual needs. In preparation for their recent family photography session, mum, Estelle, told me that some of...

10 Reasons Why Family Portraits are Important

We get so focussed on the future that we forget about our past. Children grow so quickly; the years pass in a blink of an eye and the next thing you know they are off to boarding school and university.  Family portraits document your family’s growth and progress through the years and capture sweet memories of your life together. Life gets so busy and stressful, you don’t think you ever will, but it’s easy to forget special characteristics, unique...
