Your Sunshine Coast
FAMILY & MATERNITY
PHOTOGRAPHER

 

As a family and maternity photographer on the Sunshine Coast, I am passionate about capturing the unique and special moments that make up your family’s story. My approach is non-posed and fun-focused, and I strive to create an environment that allows you to relax and be yourselves. I believe that getting to know my clients is essential for designing a session tailored to your needs and preferences.

When it comes to family photography, I understand that every family is different, and every session should be unique. That’s why I love to incorporate activities that keep you busy during the session and allow me to capture natural, candid moments. Whether we go for a walk, dance, surf, jump in the pool, have a picnic, or even a backyard bonfire, I will work with you to create a session tailored to your family’s interests and personalities.

I understand that engaging kids can be a challenge during a photo session, so I make sure to keep things fun and interactive for them as well. Whether it’s playing games, telling jokes, or simply allowing them to be themselves, I believe that making a photo session a fun experience for kids is the key to capturing their true personalities in the photos.

As a maternity photographer, I understand the importance of capturing the beauty and wonder of the pregnancy journey. Whether it’s your first pregnancy or your fourth, I strive to create a session that is both beautiful and meaningful. I will work with you to create a session that celebrates your growing family and the love surrounding you.

If you want to make your photo session an experience, and not just a photo shoot, I’m the right photographer for you. Contact me today to schedule your session, and I’ll be happy to provide you with my “get to know you” questionnaire and a Family Session Prep Guide with tips on how to prepare for your session and what to wear. I will be there every step of the way to ensure that you are comfortable and happy with the final result. I believe that every family is unique and special, and my goal is to create a portfolio of images that truly capture the essence of your family and that you will treasure for a lifetime.

My APPROACH

 

My approach to maternity and family photography is all about capturing natural, candid moments in the great outdoors. I believe that the natural beauty of the outdoors provides the perfect backdrop for capturing the true essence of your family. From the lush greenery to the warm sunlight, the great outdoors provides a unique and stunning setting for your family photos.

I understand that children can be unpredictable, and that’s why I don’t believe in forcing them into poses. Instead, I let them be themselves and capture the candid, unscripted moments that make your family unique. I will give guidance and prompts to help you feel more comfortable and at ease during the session, but ultimately, I want to capture the real, raw emotions and connections between family members.

I also believe that the best photos come from a relaxed and comfortable environment. That’s why I make sure to choose outdoor locations that are conducive to relaxation and comfort for your family during the photo session. I will work with you to find a location that is meaningful to your family or one that fits your vision.

Overall, my approach to maternity and family photography is all about capturing the natural beauty of your family and the great outdoors and preserving it forever. I strive to capture all the special moments that make your family unique in a way that reflects the beauty of nature.

Location
& TIME

 

When it comes to outdoor photo sessions, I understand the importance of choosing the right location. I take the time to carefully select the perfect location for each of my sessions, taking into consideration a variety of factors such as the client’s preferences, the time of year, and the lighting. I absolutely love to shoot during the golden hours of sunset and sunrise when the light is soft and warm. The warm tones of the setting sun can create a romantic and intimate atmosphere, while the soft glow of sunrise can create a fresh and lively atmosphere.

I also like to explore different locations, from lush gardens and parks to urban areas and beaches. Each location offers its own unique ambiance and photographic opportunities. I love to capture the natural beauty of the surroundings, whether it’s the vibrant colors of a flower garden or the gritty texture of a city street. I also believe that outdoor locations can be ideal for family photography, as they offer plenty of space for kids to run around and play, creating a relaxed and natural atmosphere. This allows me to capture candid and authentic moments, as well as some traditional family portraits.

However, I also understand that some clients may prefer indoor photography for their newborn sessions. That’s why I can arrange for indoor sessions in a studio for an additional charge. If you’re interested in this option, please feel free to contact me for more information.

My approach is to work with my clients to find the perfect location that suits their preferences and vision for their photo session. I believe that a beautiful location combined with the soft, warm light of sunset and sunrise creates the perfect setting for capturing the natural beauty, emotions, and connections of your family.

Styling

 

Styling is an important aspect of any photo session, and it can make a big difference in the final results. As a maternity and family photographer, I understand the importance of ensuring my clients look and feel their best in front of the camera. That’s why I take the time to discuss styling options with each of my clients and help them choose the perfect outfits for their session.

I believe that proper styling can help to create a cohesive and polished look in the photographs while also bringing out the personalities of each family member. I recommend my clients consider their overall colour palette when choosing their outfits and aim for a cohesive look that flows well together.

I always recommend to my clients to check out my Family Session Prep Guide, where they can find different styles and looks that can be achieved through different clothing choices. I also recommend some local businesses where they can hire dresses for an affordable price for maternity or family session.

I understand that styling can be overwhelming for some of my clients, so I am always here to help and guide them every step of the way. My goal is to make sure that my clients look and feel their best in front of the camera, and that their personalities shine through in their photographs.

When to

BOOK

 

The perfect time to book your maternity, newborn, or family session depends on the specific milestones you want to capture.
For maternity sessions, it is best to book between 32 and 35 weeks of your pregnancy to ensure that you are comfortably showing your baby bump.

For newborn sessions, it is ideal to book within the first 10-14 days of your baby’s life, as they are still in that curled-up, sleepy stage. However, I understand that sometimes it’s not possible to book within this timeframe because of health issues, so in that case, it’s best to wait until the baby is three months old.

For family sessions, the ideal time is anytime during the year. Please note that I don’t do extended family sessions.
It’s never too early to book your session. I recommend booking at least 4 to 5 weeks in advance to ensure availability, however, if you’re in a rush, please contact me and we will try to work something out.

The photos we received from Vera have far exceeded our expectations, and made me get quite emotional! Vera is some sort of magician behind the camera as my son was not interested in the model life, but she still managed to capture his little smiles! I am so grateful to now have these memories from our home captured. We can’t thank her enough!

About

VERA

Capturing your family`s love and connection

My name is Vera, and I am a family and wedding photographer living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. I have been in the Photography business for over 10 years. I have a deep passion for capturing the special moments that families share. Being a mother myself, I understand the importance of preserving these memories for generations to come. I am a true lover of photography and love nothing more than capturing the beauty of everyday moments. Photography is not only my job but also my hobby. I also enjoy travelling, spending time at the beach, drinking coffee and spending time with my family, especially my son Luke.

As a family photographer, my approach is to capture real and candid moments that showcase the unique dynamic of your family. I aim to make you feel comfortable and guide you during the shoot, but I don’t believe in posing you or your kids. I am focused on capturing your energy and the way your family interacts with one another. My goal is to create photographs that are not only visually stunning but also meaningful, and that will be treasured for years to come.
