Kids love playful parents. Especially when they get down on the ground and wrestle.

The Pirie family loved their family portrait experience with Geoff Fisher of Fisher Photography.

The light was perfect and it was one of those beautiful days of autumn; the sun was shining and the birds were singing. And at this Como location close to Perth, the ducks were ‘quacking’. There’s a lake, plenty of trees and lot’s of good angles for photos.

With professional Family Portrait Photographer, Geoff Fisher, the Pirie family of Armadale near Perth, could see just how good their location was for their recent family portraits.

At The Neil McDougal Park in Como they had a lake with ducks, plenty of soft grass and lots of trees. The trees gave full shade where needed and there was plenty of space. The park also has various ground levels to make it more interesting. It is one of the best parks around Perth for children and family photos.

Yvonne and Gerard were so happy with their childrens’ photos they could hardly decide which to choose for display at home. The two images displayed here were printed as ‘gallery wraps’ on canvas. The rest were gift prints which will later go into frames with glass.

Getting the family together for a luncheon is a really good excuse for a ‘Geoff Fisher’ Family Photo. 

Of course you need to tell everyone so that you can ensure they wear the most appropriate clothes. We advise against wearing bold stripes and outrageous fashions that might wreck an otherwise perfect family photo.

Rhonda Perrott was very satisfied with the outcome of her family photos. She already knew about Fisher Photography and called Geoff. He was happy to advise on the need for some planning in the clothes department.

Rhonda was also impressed with the way Geoff’s wife Toni Fisher, helped manage their grand children. “She was very patient and it helped make everything work”, said Rhonda.

Sally and Tim Flavel chose their City Beach home as the setting for a Fisher Photography portrait session. And Geoff Fisher was very happy to oblige.

And yes, ‘Benji’ is listening carefully to Geoff Fisher’s instruction to “stay’, lie down”.

The kids and the ‘Benji’  had a great time running around, with dad holding on to the dog and letting go to make the portrait work. Posing in the lounge is a great way to calm Benji and keep the kids together. Helped by Geoff’s easy going manner, they were able to choose from a wide  range of images.

Tim and Sally chose canvas and acrylic mounted photos for their walls after careful consideration on the ‘virtual wall’. Fisher Photography can show exactly how the photos will look on display. This is a great help in decision making. After delivery by Geoff, it was a simple matter of installing in the chosen places. 

The photo session and portrait displays of  Geoff Fisher portraits will reinforce memories of childhood.

Planning a photo session? You will need to plan what to wear. Geoff Fisher recommends keeping it simple and if possible stay with the classic designs (such as Country Road) which will not date so quickly. It is really important to maintain some uniformity within a family group.

Clothing styles to avoid We suggest that you avoid bold patterns such as stripes and spots. Think ‘Country Road’ styles that don’t date. If you are planning an outdoor location, white or soft, light colours work well with parkland settings. Soft pinks blues etc also look great at the beach. Try to avoid solid blacks in beach settings.

In an outdoor location, consider if there is sand rocks or grass? Dress for that setting. You will want to be comfortable sitting on the grass. And you might want to bring a lead for the family dog.

Black & white? Think about shades of black and white in your clothing. Since your selection may include black and white, consider how your outfits would appear in those shades.

Bring props and accessories  Using props and accessories help create different looks. Think about things that suit you and your personality. Bring a ball or tricycle or favourite toy for children.

Hairstyles It is best not to change hairstyles just before your photo session. Changes are best made a week or so earlier so that a new style can settle down.


Fisher Photography creates beautiful memories of you and your family for now and future generations. It’s so important to get it right.

If you have questions about our portrait sessions and would like to talk about booking a date, call me, Geoff Fisher, on 0414 644 071 during business hours. Geoff Fisher

As a company that has done a lot of family photography in Perth, we have seen a lot of family dynamics up close and personal. One of the most cherished aspects that we have seen is the special bond that exists between mothers and daughters. When the daughter is a child, living at home, her mother is her role model.

Some of our best photos have been taken of mothers and young daughters. There is a special dynamic that can never be recaptured once the daughter becomes an adult. The bond between a mother and adult daughter can grow deeper and much more mature, especially as the daughter becomes a mother herself, but is different than the mother to child relationship.

At Fisher Photography, we specialise in capturing the unique and special bond between mothers and daughters, providing memories that last a lifetime. When both mother and daughter are older, they will always have beautiful pictures of their bond as it existed years before. We recommend taking pictures at least once a year, compiling them in an album, and looking at them frequently, to remind each other of this sacred and lifelong relationship.

As a daughter grows into adulthood, she finds that she can talk to her mother about things she would never talk about to anyone else, including her father. Daughters who go off to college often find that, contrary to popular opinion, they actually grow closer to their mothers. The daughter has more going on in her life, runs into a lot of new experiences and situations, and often leans on her mother for advice in navigating the journey into adulthood.

As the daughter becomes a mother herself, her mother becomes a source of wisdom and advice on how to raise her own family. Mothers and daughters grow especially close when the daughter is carrying her first child, and mother and daughter have the shared experience of having given birth. The daughter gains an even deeper appreciation for her mother when she realises what her mother went through to give birth to her.

There is no time like the present to celebrate the sacred bond between mother and daughter. Call (08) 6468 5961 today to start preserving your most cherished memories with our creative portrait photography services in Perth.
