We'll discover one of the best parts of Melbourne that makes for great pictures. As we walk around Fitzroy, one of Melbourne's most creative and unique areas, I'll take your photos in a natural and candid style. I'll advise you on which spots are great for portraits, as well as take your pictures anywhere that strikes your eye. Don't waste time trying to find the best spots or end up with boring "touristy" pictures. I'll make sure you'll have fun during our time together and will feel excited about sharing your new portraits with your friends and family. I'll invite you for coffee or tea before we head out to take photos, so we can get to know each other and you'll feel more comfortable in front of the camera (which makes for even better photos). I now offer both personal shoots as well as a group experience. You will see each option by the price reflected in the calendar. Pricing is per person (AU$119 group, AU$179 personal). For the group experience, I'll send you 15-20 photos, for the personal session you will receive 30-35 photos. I am often flexible with time, so if you're after a date that isn't scheduled in the calendar yet, just get in touch and we can usually make it happen.
I'm a professional portrait and lifestyle photographer with a background in documentary photography (www.helenalapetite.com). I always aim for candid, genuine and natural moments, and avoid anything that looks too fake or posed. I believe the best images communicate a story and show who you really are. I've been a photographer for over 7 years, run workshops in Melbourne and London, and love connecting with people via photography (and good coffee + food). ;) I also love Pinterest where I have grown an audience of over 700,000 followers + publish an online magazine on food culture and travel.
Coffee or Tea I'll always invite you for a cup of coffee or tea before the experience so we can get to know each other.
Photos I'll send you your best photos 3-4 days after the experience. Group experience: 15-20 photos, Personal session: 30-35…
We’ll meet in Fitzroy, one of Melbourne's most interesting, unique and creative areas, and explore the laneways and graffiti art around Brunswick St. We'll always start the experience with some coffee/tea close by.
