We get it. Kids can be a little unpredictable (or nervous, shy, etc).

With this in mind, our studios are designed to give children the freedom to move around, play on the beds, and feel at ease – it’s all part of the fun.

Giving them freedom also allows us to capture those candid, ‘un-posed’ moments that make our photography so special.

You can also request a call with one of our stylists to get some great hints and tips for your session.

We don’t provide hair and makeup, but guests can choose to have this done before they come into the studio.

We recommend guests prepare as they would for a night out. We find we get the best images if they come looking like themselves.

Our talented photographers, retouch artists and studio lighting will ensure that all guests look their very best.

We have photographed all sorts of pets at Verve, and understand fur babies are part of the family too.

Our studios are designed to cater for families getting nice and cosy on beds and sofas. If you feel your pet would be comfortable in this environment, you are more than welcome to bring them (please just let us know beforehand).

Every Verve Experience includes a cinematic viewing of images – this is often our guests’ favourite part of the whole package as they get to see how amazing their photos are in a relaxed setting with refreshments.

The vast majority of our guests love how their photos turn out (even the harshest self-critics amongst us!).

Our Origins

Verve Portraits was created in 2006, born from a quest to change the landscape of photography within Australia. We wanted to create an immersive experience for families as they stepped inside a Verve studio, making the “experience itself” just as memorable and valuable as the imagery we capture.

Our distinctive style of raw, relaxed and emotive photography ensures the imagery we capture is timeless and becomes more and more valuable as the years pass by.

The Verve Family

Created and run by the McErvale family, Verve Portraits is a very family-centric business. Our creative tribe are an extension of our family and we all share the same passion for documenting families in a truly unique way.
