Barker Family | Portrait Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Wednesday, 31 October 2012 12:06   

Sunday morning I had the pleasure of meeting the Barker family at Sorrento Beach for a family portrait. We first met the Barker family when eldest daughter Larissa married Steve in March last year. Its been 18 months since their wedding and they still stay in our memory as one of the most fun and easy going families we’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  This family portrait was no different. We had some fun with piggy back rides and water fights so there were definitely some real smiles. We feel honoured to meet such great people!

When we first meet with our clients we give them a bit of history behind our business and how we came to be photographers. There are many different kinds of photography and the reason that we chose Weddings & Portraits is because of the relationship we feel we have with people whom we photograph. Anyone with a camera can take a photo. But we engage people with the camera and create a connection that makes us photographers.Its because of this special bond that our clients keep coming back.


We love watching families grow and our clients love hearing how we’ve grown as well. In the first week of January Billie & I will be expecting our fourth baby and we have been told it will be a girl. With 3 boys already, everyone we have told has shared their excitement. We look forward to sharing photos of our family soon as well.

Schwartz Family | Portrait Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Monday, 29 October 2012 09:39   

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of taking some family portraits of the Schwartz family at Sorrento Beach. October is undoubtedly the busiest month of the year for us not only for Weddings but for family portraits as well. It’s the time of year when the weather starts to warm up just enough to entice people out and take advantage of our gorgeous beaches and parks. It is also the perfect time to get in some family portraits to use as Christmas presents.

Quite often we hear of clients mentioning that they will take photos and just leave them as digital files on their computers. In today’s age Im sure all of us are guilty of this in some form. But there is something about a printed image that gives a photo life! If you think a photo looks good on your screen you should see it displayed on a wall. There are so many different printing options ranging from canvas wall mounts to ice blocks that allows our clients to change a photograph into an art piece to display in their home. Check out our Portrait Packages today!

Michaels Cake Smash | Perth Photographer
Written by Nick Lance on Wednesday, 29 August 2012 15:42   

Who says Cake Smash photos are just for toddlers? Recently Michael’s sister Jessica had her first Cake Smash so today Michael turned 5 years old and he was treated to his first Cake Smash as well! We always take a few portraits before the giant cupcake comes out which allows kids to become familiar with the camera and so there’s some extra photos for parents before the Cake Smash. So at first Michael seemed a bit shy and not his cheery self. I asked him if he was having a good birthday and he simply asked “Can I smash my cake now?” So out came the giant cupcake and Michael’s face lit up. It didn’t take long for the giant cupcake to be completely demolished. He had the time of his life!


Cake Smash photoshoots also make for great gift ideas. Visit our Cake Smash tab or contact us for more info.















Jarrads 1st Cake Smash | Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Sunday, 19 August 2012 16:18   

It was Jarrad’s 1st birthday the other day and today his parents treated him to his first Cake Smash photoshoot. One of the best aspects of a Cake Smash is watching the little one’s reaction to being allowed to do whatever they please with a giant cup cake. After all, it isn’t every day they have such a special treat. Every child is different when the first see the giant cupcake; some are a bit hesitant while others run straight in and start smashing. Today Jarrad was the first 1 year old to share the giant cupcake with his parents, which I found rather sweet – even though his poor mum doesn’t like cake!

We’re offering our Cake Smashes with an 8x12” print at only $150. Click here for more info.













Jessica's 1st Cake Smash | Children Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Wednesday, 01 August 2012 16:21   

Jessica turned 1 just last week and today she had her first Cake Smash! The look on her face was priceless when she was presented with a giant cupcake.  It took her a little while to realise that it was all hers to do with as she pleases, but before long she was right in there smashing it to pieces. Cake Smash photo shoots are a great idea for parents who would like to get photos of young children without the traditional posed look and it’s also a lot of fun! We provide the giant cupcake and we clean the mess.











Marcia & Colin | Perth Couple Photographer
Written by Nick Lance on Sunday, 22 July 2012 15:29   

Today I spent some time at Hyde Park with Marcia & Colin and although we had to dodge the crowds on school holidays, we were able to get some great natural photos. Sometimes it can be hard to 'perform' for the camera, so I try not to have precise set ups. Instead I try and guide people and let them have a chat and laugh together. I feel that eases people gently into the photoshoot and we end up with natural looking photos.


I’ve tried my hand at almost every genre since I was given my first SLR camera almost 20 years ago. It was my 16th birthday and I immediately took my baby sister out the back and burned through a few rolls of film. Since then I’ve found that although I love all genres, my favourite is definitely couples. For me a great photo is about capturing a moment and when I have a couple to photograph there are plenty of moments worth capturing.
