Mums, let us ask you something. How many photos of your kids do you have stored on your phone? 800? 1600? 2500?
Now, how many of these photos are you in? (Blurry selfies don’t count!)
Sure, we all share a similar collection of candid shots of our kids playing at the park, making sand castles at the beach, posing in their cute matching PJs.
Some snaps make it to Instagram, others to Facebook and some even get printed and taped to the fridge.
But what’s missing in most of these photos is you. Because, we mums are often the ones snapping the shots. Rarely do we get a chance to be in them. If we do, it’s probably a poorly-focused pic that our kids took from the back seat of the car. And the chances of us actually wearing makeup are quite slim.
Step out from behind the lens with Verve Portraits
Verve Portraits is a nationally recognised portraiture studio with locations in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. They have photographed thousands of Australian families over the years and consistently surpass all expectations. The artists at Verve have an incredible way of capturing that intangible connection in families and bringing this love to life through their photographs.
And, best of all, you are in the photos! And you get the opportunity to get dressed up, pull out your pretty jewellery and cuddle your kids in front of the camera, not behind it.
Keep them little forever (well, on the walls, at least)
If you have itty bitty ones, their newborn package is especially ideal Their studios are warm and welcoming and you get to choose from heaps of gorgeous props to play around with. As every session comes with a personalised consult with a stylist, you can capture this fleeting stage.
Let Verve Portraits capture their cute expressions, their chubby cheeks, their cheeky first smiles and that unbreakable family connection in a stunning photo series that you will cherish long after that baby chubbiness is gone.
Get the family together
If you are lucky enough to have extended family nearby or visiting this Christmas, then consider a multi-generational photo shoot, another specialty of Verve Portraits. There is room for up to 40 people in the Verve studios so get grandparents, kiddies, cousins, aunts and uncles all together for the ideal way to celebrate your family.
Yes, it can be next to impossible to get everyone in the same room, but this is such a great gift idea for the grandparents. And the perfect way to say thanks, for not only being there for you, but for your children as well. We did this for my parents last year and, let’s just say, the finished photos resulted in a lot of emotional tears. Watching them unwrap their framed pics was so so so worth it. #allthefeels

Verve specialise in all types of family portraiture, whether you want something serious or spunky. They are redefining portraiture in Australia, giving families something to cherish for years and years to come.
They have packages catered to couples, pregnancy/maternity, individuals, kids and family. You can even bring your fur babies to the photo shoot – how awesome is that??!!
We all deserve to have a family portrait we’re proud of. One that adds a personalised glow to the room, that brings a smile to our faces every time we see it, that shows us at our best, that makes us realise how lucky we really are.
