Introducing Story & Light, a playful family portrait studio in Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs.

These are the days of magic and wonder…  childhood (and parenthood) is not without its challenges, that’s for sure. In the chaos of daily life, it’s hard to find time to stop. And when we do press pause for a moment, we might find that our kids have suddenly changed.

Maybe they are losing their baby face, and turning into a real little boy or girl. Perhaps they are more cuddly, less cuddly, independent, curious, full of spunk, full of joy, hilarious to watch, fun to play with, unique, beautiful, adorable. Perhaps all of those things… and they will keep on changing, growing, unfolding who they are as the days and years fly past.

Your (family) time is now. Your family is a unique crew of personalities, and your life is an adventure, happening right now. Full of fun and challenges and love, and always, ever, changing. Your family is right now, this moment, this season of your life, this everything.

Your family is worth celebrating.



Book your session now by filling in the form at the end of this page.

We will contact you to book the date and time, and find out more about your family!

Your Story & Light photo session will mix loosely guided poses with fun word play, memories, inside jokes, squishy cuddles and quirky games. You will enjoy a morning or afternoon out of time, a couple of hours to play, hang out, hug, squish, dance, laugh or just be. You’ll be given the opportunity to focus on each individual relationship within your family crew, as well as the connection between you all. You’ll also get cute, fun and playful images of your child on their own.
