Family Photography Hobart: 21 of the BEST Outdoor Portrait Locations and tips for making your session fun!
Family Photography Hobart and Southern Tasmania – By Family Love Photography
In 2018, it’s more evident than ever that families come in many shapes and sizes. At Family Love Photography, it gives us so much pleasure to extrapolate what makes each family unique and capture the precious moments to preserve for a lifetime and generations to come. Our goal is to be the leaders in Family Photography Hobart and Southern Tasmania. You can view some of our images here: Family Photography Hobart Professional Photography
Family photography is not only a way of preserving the memories of the personalities and connections between family members, it’s also a fun experience where everyone can be involved. Family Photography can mean different things to different people. We encourage families to think about how they wish to be pictured. Some families prefer the more traditional style of family portrait, everyone looking down the barrel of the camera lens, posed and smiling faces. While others prefer us to capture their treasured moments in a more candid way. This is our favourite way to photograph as everyone is relaxed and doing what comes naturally with those they love most!
We are so proud and grateful to all the wonderful families that we have has the privilege of photographing throughout our years servicing the local community. One thing that we continue to embrace is the diversity of who make up the ‘typical’ Hobart family. What is typical? What is normal? We really dislike these terms, as it tends to stereo type people into categories with labels.
When we recently did a call out for same sex couples to celebrate their unions as part of a Family Photography Hobart model call session. We were so blessed with the amount of loving couples and families who expressed interest in being part of our family photography Hobart project. Although we also found it quite sad that some of these amazing, loving couples and families, still don’t consider themselves a normal family. Again we ask….what is normal? Isn’t a family who love, trust and respect each other a ‘normal family’ regardless of the genders of the parents? That’s a rhetorical question by the way… 😉
Through my years of teaching baby massage to families of Hobart, I have met loads of women who have either decided to start a family on their own, using a donor and many others who are in a committed same sex relationship, who have found a way to extend their family.
Family Photography Hobart encompasses so much. Our clients range from extended families, to couples to friends, roommates, families with pets and generation photoshoots, where we capture the elders. Sometimes it’s the last photos families have of grandparents, great grandparents and great, great grandparents.
It’s quite fascinating that as technology has progressed in what is now the digital age, so many families are wanting to have their images in the digital form, on a disk, a USB or via a Dropbox link. One has to ask, why? Wouldn’t it be better to be able to see and touch your memories on a regular basis? Perhaps this is something we as photographers will never completely understand. We proudly offer premium printed products in the form of wall art (canvases and framed prints) as well as high quality boutique albums and portrait boxes. These image products allow our clients of Hobart who engage us for their family photography needs to immerse themselves in how they identify as a family. Nothing gives us greater pleasure. Of course, we still offer digitals in some of our collections, knowing that some families take comfort in having these. As a professional family Photography business, we always keep your precious images secure and safe. You can take comfort knowing that this is all part of the service we offer.
Here are some images I took of a gorgeous family down at Seven Mile Beach. Little Carter and his two mums, captured here with love and laughter in every image I captured. Ash and Leahanne were keen on displaying their wall art in their lounge room. Using our state of the art image preview software, we were able to preview the images to scale utilising a picture of the clients own lounge room wall! This is something we love to be able to do, as we can plan out the session before the day of the photoshoot.

Our studio is arguably one of the best equipped and most comfortable in the State. As I sit wring this blog post, it’s the first week of winter. As appealing as the outdoors can be for family photography sessions in and around Hobart, perhaps an even more appealing option is to stay clean, dry and warm in the comfort of our purpose designed studio space.
