Family Photographer Perth

relaxed & un-posed family portrait sessions

I'm Melissa Sprlyan, your family photographer in Perth.  As a mother of two young boys myself I understand the stress involved in planning family photos which is why it is my mission to deliver a stress-free experience for my clients. My family sessions are relaxed and un-posed. I give gentle direction and my aim is to photograph the connection between you and your family. Ask about extended family portrait sessions, include multiple generations, grandparents and great grandchildren. See an extended family session here.

Examples of our family photo sessions (but not limited to)

  • Immediate and extended family
  • Generation family photography
  • Children photography
  • Motherhood photography

Over the years I have built a list of tried and tested locations in Perth, ones that I know photograph family portraits well year round. My locations are central to Perth, easily accessible and safe for young children. Family sessions on location are scheduled late in the afternoon, usually ending just after sunset. Some clients opt for sessions in-home too. See a recent family session here.

Wardrobe is crucial to ensuring your portraits are of the light style you see in my portfolio. I dress and style your entire family, we have pieces for Dad and young children. I've found this to be one of the main reasons my clients choose me as their family photographer. We have over 100 pieces in our boutique style wardrobe, most of the pieces for Mum are flexible in sizing, bump friendly with easy access to breastfeed. I've found Mum's love the wardrobe because the process is simple, it eliminates the stress and time wasted on shopping. On average my clients save $500 per session using our wardrobe!

Celebrate your family with custom framed artwork. Together we can design a wall gallery for your home that can be built on as your family grows. Full product and pricing guide is delivered upon enquiry.

“Melissa is an outstanding photographer. She ensured to capture our vision for our family portrait. Melissa was very professional and we were very impressed with her services from providing wardrobe options and a destination that was absolutely breath taking. My son also has special needs, however Melissa established a positive relationship with him, so he felt comfortable with having his photo taken. She managed to capture his beautiful personality throughout our session.I would highly recommend.”
