Welcome to the Premier Studio Blog! Here we will keep you up to date of important events - like when the lilies are in full bloom, when is the best time to have your photos taken and even great stories from our clients - like a special proposal which got everyone at Premier Studio very excited!
Here's a little bit of info about us; being 3rd generation family photographers we have a deep sense of family and pride in our work.
We have been in the business of taking family portraits for more than 40 years. Our grandmother Shirley was the first professional female photographer in Western Australia. She brought her love of taking wedding photos to the rest of the family, first passing it onto Janet Craig (Jonelle's mother), and since then we have specialised in family portrait style photography.
At Premier Studio, we have won a number of awards for our dedication to taking outstanding and creative family portraits, including the Australian Family Photographer of the year award for the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) in 2012.
Our team of photographers are all award winning Master Photographers accredited with the AIPP. We care deeply about getting to know each of our clients’ needs before a photo shoot, so that we can understand what makes your family unique and what creates that special family bond. We will work with you to ensure that we incorporate your family’s own version of togetherness into each shot.
The high level of service we provide for each client not only lets us better understand your portrait requirements, it also helps us provide a fun and enjoyable photo shoot experience. Taking photos can often be a source of family tension. There is always the one member of the family who is asking everyone else incessantly to stop and pose for photos.
Rather than making photography a painful experience, Premier Studio photo shoots are a healthy and loving way for family members to bond. You will share many smiles and can be as goofy or silly as you want to during the shoot.
We make our photo shoots fun and have many different natural settings. We have 5 acres of land in Banjup and 2 acres in Bunbury. Our clients have taken photos on nature walks through our forests, lying in the grassy and flowery fields, swinging from a tree, and biking through the beaches. We will help you choose photo settings that seem natural to you and your family so you will all feel at ease.
We also believe that photos do not need to be heavily edited or subjected to overexposure. We will do some touch up, but we always do our best to ensure that your photos look great during the shoot.
We have many creative ideas for family photos. Some of our clients choose to pose with their dogs or horses. Others take tender pictures with their newborn babies. You can choose to embrace your family members in hugs or opt to have your family centred around a prop where you are all enjoying the same activity.
Our experienced photographers will process your photos in a matter of weeks. When they are ready you can come back to the studio to choose your favourites. We have a variety of photo finishes to suit any budget. Our canvas, acrylic, and frames all come from the highest quality Australian manufacturers. We offer a range of other photography services including individual, couples and family portraits, kids photos, baby/children photography, pregnant/maternity photos and nude/semi-nude portraits.
