Last year Katrina offered to do a photo shoot of our family. That doesn't sound that exceptional until you understand our circumstances. We had never invested in professional photos, and to be truthful I didn't think we really needed them. But as is often the way we had 1000's of photos of our daughter Georgie, and Georgie with her dad, but very few of Georgie with her mum (me) and even fewer of the 3 of us as a family. In fact the last family photo we had was taken the week before I lost my shoulder length blonde hair, 3 years ago! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2009.  Katrina gave us a gift we ...

Not only are we given an opportunity to see an insight into the early years of this child but also see how love and unity is formed among family. I love photographing family portraiture because of this! When one of our client arrives at our Hawthorn studio &nbsp;for their viewing after their very first photographic shoot at Katrina Christ Photographer Melbourne, this experience is exciting, new, pure and loving. Seeing a client’s (and their children’s!) reactions to images like this one just melts your heart. &nbsp;&nbsp;We at Katrina Christ help to capture split-second moments in time which otherwise may go unnoticed or ...

We had a ball spending time with the gorgeous May family. A hot summer day set the tone for some beautiful family portraits and adding to their already existing Katrina Christ Photographer collection of artwork as a returning client was a fantastic experience (yay!&nbsp; Thank you for coming back to see us again for your portraits!) This Katrina Christ Photographer shoot was conducted by our fabulous team member Rachel to mark the very exciting addition of Samuel to the family. The bond between Sameul and Scarlett was so evident, and this image was a standout for us and the May family alike. They chose to have it presented on ...

I was lucky ...

&nbsp; Above is a Gorgeous Snippet video from some of our Beautiful Families of 2012!!! What a wonderful crazy year it was. We launched our new&nbsp; you tube chanel and had a professional video shot of us which was exciting. we then proceeded to start shooting our own videos within a family portrait shoot. &nbsp;This certainly has its challenges , let me tell you, flicking between shooting stills and&nbsp; video at the appropriate moments and making sure you don't miss a spectacular shot whilst doing so. There are 4 photographers here in our Brisbane Portrait studio and we all loved the new challenge. &nbsp; xoxoxo Check out our youtube channel! &nbsp;

For Anita and Thomas, it will be a very (and busy) Christmas ahead this year, with them awaiting the arrival of their first baby.&nbsp; We don’t know whether they will be greeted by a baby boy or girl, but we can only assume that bubs will be GORGEOUS!&nbsp; Of course, we simply cannot wait to meet their new family member and are so looking forward to a family photography session in the New Year to capture their newborn.&nbsp; (Can you believe 2013 is only 6 weeks away?) Our Melbourne studio photographer Rachel had such a great time photographing this couple during this classic Signature style shoot, who were very excited, energetic and ...
