Relaxed & Fun Perth Family Photographer
My family photoshoots are lovely & relaxed; suitable for laid-back families looking for relaxed storytelling sessions in Perth, Western Australia. I capture a combination of individual portraits, family groups and photojournalistic shots of children at play during our time together. You will also be sent a questionnaire prior to our shoot where you can detail any special requirements or particular shots you are looking for.
Let’s go on an adventure with Perth Family Photographer Kate McAllister
I want to make this photo session work for your family. So whether it’s a few photos with your children or some memorable pictures of you and your own parents or an extended shoot with the whole family; I can make this happen. This is your chance to get creative and really make a photo session about you and your loved ones and the special bond that you share.
Make this year a priority for beautiful portraits with loved ones. Read more about why NOW is the perfect time for a family photoshoot here
“Kate went above and beyond during our family photoshoot. The booking process was easy, and her communication in arranging a location was excellent. During the shoot, Kate was brilliant in engaging our two young and very energetic kids. It was completely relaxed and really enjoyable!“
Georgia, Family Client
Where do the sessions take place?
My outdoor family sessions are set in beautiful locations all over Perth. I have a location guide with my favourite spots but if you have somewhere special in mind just let me know. I shoot my outdoor sessions during the beautiful golden hour before sunset. You can also opt for “in-home” family sessions to take away any uncertainty in the weather
What happens if it rains?
I am from Scotland so I am VERY used to working in all types of weather conditions! The only time I will reschedule a session is if very heavy rain or strong winds are forecast. I do ask you to be flexible on the day of the shoot as we sometimes may alter timings slightly to avoid a shower or two!
Tell me more about what the session involves.
I’m a Perth lifestyle family photographer…..what does that mean? Well, I want to capture your family’s personality – snuggling, walking hand in hand, laughing and playing (and everything in between). I provide gentle prompts and guidance but allow the freedom to be completely yourself. I won’t force you into any awkward poses or make your child “smile for the camera” or even look at the camera if they don’t want to. My aim is to create memories that will be displayed with pride in the home

What should we wear?
I don’t restrict you to a strict colour palette but it’s always good to dress appropriately for the weather/season we are shooting in so you feel as comfortable as possible during the shoot. A lot of my clients like to go for variations of neutral tones as standard but if you enjoy wearing bright colours and patterns then please do! It’s important your personality shines through in the images!
Will we get the digital prints from our session?
Yes! My custom lifestyle shoots are all-inclusive so you will receive full-resolution, edited digital files with printing rights within 14 days of your shoot date. You will also have the option to download “social size” images to make sharing your shoot on social media a breeze! All prints are hosted in a password-protected gallery where you can view, share and download your images.
What packages do you offer?
My outdoor family shoots can be for immediate family, couples, extended family, or friends you would like to be family! They are great for celebrating birthdays and special occasions or simply to document your growing tribe. Shoots take place at a mutually agreed location. This session will include a minimum of 30 high-resolution digital images presented in a password-protected gallery.
To give you complete price certainty I have one family package which includes digital file rights to your entire final gallery. This means you don’t have to be forced to choose a few images and send the rest to the cutting room floor. All images I include in your gallery are yours to keep.
Prints & products can be added after your session if you choose
$450.00 / minimum 30 digital files
All package prices are a flat rate inclusive of session fee, private online gallery with fully downloadable images (both high resolution and social) and direct access to a gallery store where you can purchase printed images and fine art prints. All digital files include full printing rights.
