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.

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…

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…

Melbourne Family Photography | Why family photography matters now more than ever before

family photograph by Melbourne photographer Michelle Pragt

If you know me at all, you’ll know that I’m passionate about family. And capturing moments of family togetherness feeds right into this need that I have to be doing something that honours what I feel is one of the most important and fundamental of society’s building blocks. Family is everything! And I fully believe that family photography can be, especially to a developing child, helpful in them seeing themselves…

Mornington Peninsula Family Beach Sessions

Mornington Peninsula family photography by Michelle Pragt

I’m so excited for more warm summer nights like this one spent with the cutest family a couple of weeks back. The beach can often be a difficult location to work with, but it’s one of my favourites. Especially later, after a hot day, when the sun is going down, and you start to get that warm glow. There’s just such a calm, nostalgic feeling that just resonates with me.
