Capture the real story of your family
and what you mean to each other
No forced smiles. No rigid, straight backs and odd angles.
For something as important as the pictures you’ll take with you for your whole life, shouldn’t you be part of the conversation? With Lilypad Photography, you will.
Professional photography. Custom designed sessions.
This is photography the way it was always meant to be. Specifically for you.
The signature session is designed for you and your family. No two are alike. Your signature session might take place at your home, the Lilypad studio, a favourite park, beach, or virtually any other location. Where you decide is as much a part of the story as who appears in the photos. Your session is custom designed, for and by you. We’ll work together to plan the perfect location, time, and activity.
- Weekdays and weekends
- Any location in Perth Metro
Want to know more about how it works?
We’ll chat. Simple. Cookie-cutter sessions won’t work. The sessions are designed to reflect you and your family. Prior to your session, we’ll chat about ideas. Yours. Mine. Locations. Activities. And the people you love. As a professional photographer, I can plan everything for you, with your input. Or, you can tell me exactly what you want. We’ll talk about locations, outfits and what to bring & expect on the day. I’ll explain exactly what you need to do to prepare. A photography session shouldn’t be a chore. It shouldn’t be a hassle. It should be fun & memorable.
The session experience
Your session might be fun and adventurous. Or quiet and reflective. Or even a little (or a lot) bit crazy. It should reflect you and your children. We’ll work together to capture real moments that show your family as they really are. Beautiful. Messy. Silly. Contemplative. Every child is unique. And so is your session. Your session has a plan, but your children, location, and weather take the lead. The day may unfold in ways we didn’t consider…and that can lead to magic. Your children will be encouraged to run, laugh, sing, dance, blow bubbles, tickle. To be the kids that they are. Bring along special items – a cherished stuffed animal, a favourite toy, anything! – to help tell the story of your family. There’s no pressure to sit quietly with a fake smile. Those amazing photos that capture a child’s personality – gorgeous smiles, bright eyes – are always achieved through play and natural interaction. That’s what we’ll do. The result? Stunning images that tell the story of your family and what you mean to each other. Your Family. Forever.
In two to three weeks time, your images will be ready. For the signature and newborn sessions, we’ll schedule a design and ordering consultation, at your convenience, for you to consider your options. You’ll be able to see your images in finished sizes, try different combinations and layouts, examine framing and presentation choices. Everything you need to decide how best to present the photos. A full slideshow will be available online a few days before this session, allowing you to view and review each image in preparation for your consultation. Each image can further be uploaded to a private and secure online cart for seven days, allowing friends and family to view and order their own prints. For your simplicity session, you can also opt for an ordering consultation, or the online cart. No matter which session you choose, or how you want to purchase, there will never be any high pressure sales tactics at work. You buy only want you want, and how you want it. My goal is your total satisfaction. Beautiful photos that truly reflect your family. Only the prints and presentation that you want. If you feel comfortable recommending me to your friends and family, and if you return when you’re ready for new portraits, then I’ve done my job.
