Newcastle, Maitland and Port Stephens Photographer
My name is Kylie Pacheco and I am a family photographer. I love to take beautiful photos that reflect your everyday life, true to life images that your children will proudly show your grandchildren one day...
As a Mum I think it is so important to document the craziness of life with small children because this stage does pass so quickly. I think the saying goes the days with small children are long but the years are short.
Children are most comfortable in their own homes so that is where I love to photograph them. Photos taken in your own home are also more meaningful because your child can look back at them and see where they lived and what their home was like.
I love images of kids being themselves and think that photos are better when the kids are actually having fun so I do suggest that you set up a favourite activity for them to play with at the time of the shoot. 2 year olds are among my favourite age to photograph because they are so spontaneous its always exciting to see what they will do next!
Please don't think you don't have to have a perfect home to have a photos taken at home- having two small children I know that a clean house doesn't last long. The best thing about my camera is how it can blur out the background meaning no dust on the floor, texter on the wall or holes in the couch from the cat will be seen.
Most parents I know do their best to record their children growing up but without training in photography it can be hard to get quality images that you love and it often means that Mum is missing from the photos. Or in the few photos Mum is in she doesn't like how she looks and deletes them! While I don't believe in photoshopping people to the extent they look fake, I do know that amazing feeling you get when someone takes a photo of you in beautiful light and at just the right angle and that is what I aim to do for every Mum who is in front of my camera!
