Professional photography for your next family reunion | Mornington Peninsula Family Photography

Coronavirus has taught me a little of something. I’m lucky enough to have my family close. Normally. But in the past few weeks of lockdown, most of us have been unable to be with our family members as liberally as we’re used to. And I’m really missing that contact with them. If anything good comes out of this situation, let it be a reminder of the importance of family.

Tuck’s Ridge Wedding | Emi and David

Mornington peninsula beach wedding photography

  On a perfect summer day, at one of Mornington Peninsula’s finest wineries, Emi and David had their dream wedding. And I was lucky enough to be there to capture it for them. While love and kinship are often seen at a wedding, Emi and David’s wedding was a uniting of cultures, and so a respectful nod of long-held traditions was in order. It’s often these things, along with a…

Riverstone Estate Wedding | Charlotte and Will

  There was so much to love about the wedding of Charlotte and Will. Heartfelt, romantic and beautiful, in every detail, gesture and sentiment. The Yarra Valley ranges was the stunning backdrop to their wedding, and those views at The Riverstone Estate are usually show-stoppers, but on this day, all eyes were on Charlotte and Will. Will’s emotional reaction to seeing his beautiful bride walk down the aisle on the…

Weddings at RACV Cape Shank Resort

Heads up brides-to-be!! There’s a new wedding venue down on the Mornington Peninsula that’s making waves and that’s the RACV Cape Shank Resort. I’ve had the pleasure of working here a couple of times now and I’m more than a tad impressed by this distinctive resort that somehow seems to both nestle into, and rise above the sand dunes to offer stunning views from every room either out to the…

Lifestyle Family Photography | Mornington Peninsula beach photo session

What even is lifestyle photography? Well it’s a style of photography that sits in between traditional portraiture which is more posed and documentary, which isn’t posed at all. So it tends to have more connection, beautiful little snippets of humanity and environmental storytelling elements to it. Here’s a perfect example. On a beautiful night recently I met this gorgeous family, and I mean gorgeous, every one of them stunning, on…

  I love autumn! It’s a beautiful time with cooler weather, but the sun is still warm, and nature is putting on a show. No wonder so many couples choose March and April for their wedding date. BUT! it can also come with some chilly days that always feel colder than they are because we’re not used to them. Jess and Ben woke up to a day that promised showers and…

Mornington Peninsula Family Photography | Beach Session

Mornington Peninsula Family photography by Michelle Pragt

  I grew up on the beach. Quite literally, our house was less than a 30m walk to the sand. And our day would often begin with an early morning swim before breakfast, followed by many repeated trips backwards and forwards from the house to the beach, and the beach to the house, until the last rays of sun were dipping into the sea. It’s no wonder that I feel…

My love of photography grew from wanting to capture as much of my travels and children's childhood as possible, and it is something that I have been loving for most of my life.
