PRECIOUS MEMORIES FADE.  BEAUTIFUL ART LASTS FOREVER. Family and Children Photography You look at your kids and see them growing up and changing every day.  Before you know it the primary school years will be over and you will be looking towards high school and beyond.  Photographs freeze time so you will always remember them just as they are today - that toothless grin, the wild unruly hair, that freckled nose and those big, beautiful eyes. Family portraits capture...

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...

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...

Vanity hurts less than regret – we need to exist in photographs

I knew I only had a few minutes before my family, including hubby, would have enough of being in front of my camera. I had just bought him home for a couple of days after his most recent Royal Flying Doctor Service emergency flight to Perth. After over a decade of living with a debilitating illness that was frequently life threatening, a rare type of tumour, an IPMN, had been discovered on his pancreas which is one of the most...

Why Lifestyle Photography Is The Best Choice For Your Family

Memories of Family Photography I still shudder at childhood memories of the dreaded family portraits with the fake smiles and awkward formal posing in front of badly painted canvas backdrops in a stuffy, brightly lit studio.  Then came the disappointment of getting portraits that kind of looked like us – or at least a bland, uncomfortable, ‘do we really look like that?’ version of us. Those experiences didn’t dampen my enthusiasm or love of photography, but they certainly coloured my...

2007-2014 Archived Horse and Dog Event Photos

I have finally had time to go back through my archives and compile a list of horse and dog event photography from 2007-2014.  This includes all portrait sessions and commercial photography sessions for this time period. I’m not planning to upload all these photos to the new photography website because a) there is unlikely to be much call for them and b) during this time period only purchased photos were fully edited so it would take me months to edit...

The Same But Different – Autism Awareness Photography Competition

I’ve entered this photo into the inaugural “BLUEprint” Go Blue for Autism Awareness Photography Competition. The colour blue is used to mark the occasion of World Autism Awareness Day. The competition brief was to capture what ‘blue’ means to you.  It could be something seen in a mood, colour, occasion, outlook or thought.  I tookthis photo in 2010 at the end of a special day spent with my family at Yallingup in Western Australia.  As my husband and two...
