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.

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.

New Year New Look Website – South West Photography

It seems like only yesterday I was finishing commissions and getting ready for Christmas and here it is almost the end of January already!  I was a bit shocked to realise today that the kids go back to school next week and I am no where near organised for that yet.
