CHILDREN & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
Family photographers based in Melbourne, Florida who take the time to create portraits that reflect your family’s unique story.
As your professional family photographer, we work closely with you to create portraits that reflect your personalities and forever serve as your connection back to this time. Framed on your wall or presented in an album, your images will forever remind you of the love that defines your bond and the journey your lives have made together.
The days pass too quickly … a family photo session with Brevard County’s Truly Madly Deeply will help you remember them forever
Like no other investment you will make in your lifetime, your professional family or children’s portraits will become more cherished and more valuable to you and your family with every passing year.
As family photographers, every week we meet with clients to reveal the beautiful images from their recent children’s or family’s photography session. Our clients’ emotional reaction to their images constantly reinforces our belief in the power of photography to help us stay true to our family values, to honor those we love and who love us and to nurture the memories of those who pass.
That is why we believe professional portraits of your children or family, hung on your wall or compiled in an heirloom album, are a truly unique gift…
…they are a gift to yourself that will evoke wonderful memories throughout your lifetime…
…and they are a gift to your kids that will increase in meaning over the course of their lives and become one of their most cherished possessions. It’s easy to imagine them many years from now, looking at their family portrait and swapping “Do you remember when…?” stories.
And while the dollar investment for a professional family photographer will soon be a distant memory, the emotional value of the finished portraits of your children or family, that you display on your walls or in an album, will increase more and more as time passes by.
Truly Madly Deeply makes it so easy to create the family portraits you want to display in your home

Frequently Asked Questions about family and children’s photography
Q. What should we wear for our family photo session?
A. Your family’s natural preferences should guide your outfit choices for your professional family photos. Sometimes it helps to identify your family centerpiece (or “center person”) … often mom or dad … and build complementary outfits around their clothing choices.
Consider too that Truly Madly Deeply Family Photography Sessions allow plenty of time for outfit changes, so you might want to bring two or more outfits to the studio to have more variety in your images.
If you prefer for everyone to wear near-identical outfits, they should be subtle and will usually replicate everyday wear, like blue jeans and white shirts, or dark tops and chinos. Alternatively, if everyone will wear coordinated outfits (rather than identical), ensure they are of similar casualness or formality and complementary in color.
Here are a seven general photography clothing rules for you to consider:
- For outdoor sessions, dress for the weather.
- Lighter colors tend to make a body look larger; darker colors make a body look smaller. White can make fair-skinned people look a little washed out.
- Muted or subdued colors will help keep the focus on your face.
- Dress in layers of complimentary colors for interesting dimension.
- Text and images on clothing can be distracting.
- Patterns often work best when they are not overly bold.
- Shoes should be appropriate for the outfit and location.

Q. Where will my family or children's photography session take place?
A. Most clients prefer the comfort of the Truly Madly Deeply studio in Melbourne on the Space Coast for their family photography session. Here you have access to the full studio experience, including comfortable surrounds and easy access to our full collection of props and sets.
If you prefer an outdoor location (the beach or a park are popular choices), or a combination of studio and outdoor shots, we are happy to work with you to create a session plan that will ensure the beautiful images you desire. Outdoor sessions typically happen early in the morning or late in the afternoon for the best lighting conditions.
Q. Can I contribute ideas for colors, props and poses I have seen elsewhere?
A. We encourage your input and love discussing your ideas and preferences during your Planning Consultation (please understand, however, ideas offered on the day of the session may be harder to include without disrupting the entire session plan).
Q. How can we ensure our kids will enjoy the photo session and that they'll cooperate?
A. During your Planning Consultation, we’ll share plenty of advice to help prepare your children, and we have lots of ways to keep them engaged throughout the session.
You can also read our article, 7 Tips To Get Your Kids Ready For Your Professional Family Photos, which is chock-full of useful information that will help your prepare for the photo session and keep the kids on track on the day. The biggest tip, however, is for the parents to relax and enjoy the experience … kids will be kids, and we have lots of experience (and LOTS of patience), so you can be assured that together we’ll create a portfolio of images you will love.
