Professional Outdoor Family Photography and Portraits


Outdoor Family Portraits by Essential Photography

As a parent, you’re always snapping pictures of your family here and there – a summer BBQ, footy games, backyard play. So when it comes to the family album, there is always someone missing – someone behind the camera. Let Essential Photography solve that problem with professional outdoor family photography.

My goal is to create images that you simply cannot create yourself. Something truly unique that you will treasure for years to come.

Whether you are looking for a traditional family portrait or something more relaxed, natural and fun, we will work together to capture a variety of images that tell your family’s story. I specialise in timeless black and white photography and offer studio or outdoor family photography sessions; just choose which option best suits your family.


An outdoor family photo shoot is a great opportunity for a bit of family bonding…it’s heaps of fun! We can suggest a range of stunning Melbourne locations to best suit your personality and preferred style. Specialising in black and white, we have a number of handpicked locations that produce elegant and timeless images. Some favourites are the rustic country look with natural bluestone and timbers, or the simple beauty of a tree-lined urban street.

The best thing about an outdoor session is that you don’t feel like you’re in front of the camera – perfect for mums and dads who are not fond of having their photo taken!

Your photography session can also take place in our spacious studio in Ringwood, Melbourne.

Essential Experience

We offer a planning session to ensure you get the most out of your photography session and capture the dynamic that makes your family unique. We love hearing your ideas! Following your session, you’ll want to show off your new photographs at their very best – that’s why we offer a popular image enhancement service and framing.
