Capturing every chapter of life with portraits

As a Perth family photographer, I’m here to help you capture every chapter of life with portraits. Through these chapters, I’ll become your ‘life photographer,’ almost like an extended member of your family, sharing in your unique life story, and helping you tell it with beautiful photography. 

When you choose me for your Perth family photography, you’ll be choosing a unique photography experience. 

What does this experience look like and what makes it unique? 

Let’s take a peek… 

The Erica Serena Photography Experience

Step 1: Submit your enquiry

First, submit your photography enquiry. From here, we’ll book in a discovery call to discuss you and your photography needs. 

Having a phone chat is the quickest and best way for me to find out what you need, how I can help and for us both to get a ‘vibe’ for each other and make sure we’ll be a good fit to work together. 

Step 2: Phone chat & booking

During our discovery call, I’ll take the time to get to know a bit about you, your family or loved ones and the type of portraits you’re looking to capture – whether this be a family, couple, maternity/newborn or multi generations shoot.

We’ll discuss dates and locations before getting your photography session booked in. 

A booking fee of $175 is required to secure your session, and it includes a $100 credit you can spend towards any products.

Step 3: Get ready for your photo shoot

Yay! You’re all booked in. 

Now, you’ll receive emails with helpful information, to help you make the most out of your time with me – these include tips on what to wear, what to bring, and tips and tricks on what to do and what not to do. These guides are particularly useful for big families bringing little ones and furry friends. 

You’ll also receive a questionnaire to fill in, so I can tailor your photo shoot to suit your needs and dreams, and ensure I get to know you and your family or loved ones a bit better before we meet. 


Woohoo! It’s time! Fun times ahead with your favourite humans (and maybe pets too!) at a location of your choice. 

Family and couples’ photography sessions usually go for about an hour, whilst a maternity shoot is generally 30-45 minutes, and newborn shoots can take anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours in my Bedford studio. 

Multi generations shoots, depending on how many family members are involved, can take anywhere from 1 – 1.5 hours.


Within 10 days of your photo shoot, all your gorgeous photos will be ready to view. 

Part of what makes my portrait photography experience so unique, is that you won’t just receive a link in which to view and select your favourite images on your own at home. Instead, you’ll be invited into my Bedford studio for a design consultation, which is an experience in itself. 

You’re invited (along with your fellow decision maker) to watch in wonder, as my studio transforms into a cinema room. The blockout blinds come down, and the projector screen is fired up, ready to view your beautiful images on the BIG SCREEN! You’ll even be offered a complimentary drink and chocolate to enjoy while you soak up all the special moments we captured together. 

I understand that choosing your favourite images is tricky business, so I’ll be there every step of the way to help you with this and suggest the best way to display them throughout your home. With specialised software, I’ll even show you what your photos will look like at various sizes on your walls, so there’s no second guessing. 

It’s here, that you also get to experience my range of photography products first hand. Take the time to touch them, hold them and look at all the different finishes and colours in person, allowing you to really get a feel for the products and which ones are right for you to display within your home. 

This session usually takes 1-1.5 hours and ends with confirmation of your order and payment of a 50% deposit for your photography products. 


Your order will go into production straight away and then within 3-6 weeks (different products have different turnaround times), you’ll be invited to collect your order with final payment. 

Then, the moment you’ve been waiting for… 

That place you call a home is about to be transformed in a truly remarkable way and will become even more meaningful to you. All the beauty and emotion captured in your photographs will now be on display, serving as a daily reminder of all the warmth, joy and love that surrounds you and your loved ones, for many years to come. 

Whatever artwork collection you chose for your home, it’s sure to transform the room, add character and personality, warmth and comfort, and most importantly tell your story.
