Capturing Your Family’s Unique Journey
Hello and welcome to our Cosy and Welcoming Portrait Studio in Altona!
Located in the heart of Altona, Melbourne, our cosy studio specialises in creating captivating, emotion-filled photographs that celebrate the unique bond of your family.
The portraits we create together are more than just images; when you glance at these portraits on your wall, they serve as a daily reminder of the love, connections and strength your family shares and a source of comfort and inspiration on those challenging days.
Embracing Your Beauty and Confidence
In addition to our family photography, I’m also passionate about our boudoir and self-love sessions. These shoots are all about celebrating you and your unique journey towards self-acceptance and self-love. Whether you’re marking a personal milestone or simply wish to see yourself in a new light, our boudoir sessions are designed to make you feel empowered, confident, and absolutely beautiful.
Jude is a warm, skilful professional who understands how to relax her subjects, to understand what is needed in a session or assignment and how to best capture the essence of those she photographs.
She is able to work with small, large and complex groups (and even animals), and (importantly) understands that to capture the best images, her subjects require her rapport and empathy. When bringing our extended family for a session she was able to accommodate a range of diverse needs and help everyone be comfortable and have a positive experience. Not only that, but the photographs were perfect too.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MPS and Jude’s services. Thanks for making our session a pleasure and a success.
Jude is very professional. She helped me feel comfortable when taking photos for my business. I had a selection of brand photography done by Jude.
Her work has helped my business look professional and stand out. She took the time to listen to my needs and understand my business and was able to capture this in the photos taken.
I am extremely happy with her work and would definitely use her again in the future.
I was so nervous about getting my photos taken for my website. I normally can’t stand having my photo taken or looking at photos of myself.
As soon as I arrived at Jude’s studio, both Jude and Mimma (the lovely hair and makeup artist) put me right at ease. I felt like I’d known them forever!
The pampering made me feel like a princess. Then when it came time to be on camera, Jude helped me to pose in the most flattering and natural-looking positions.
Most importantly, I love the photos! My website is not ready yet but I’ve been using the photos for everything in the meantime!
I couldn’t recommend The Melbourne Portrait Studio enough!
Thank you so much!
