Great Artistic Photo Shoots
A great photographer does more than just take beautiful photos, rather they can capture the essence of you. JvB Photography has a variety of photography packages including studio shoots, family packages, events, business photographs, as well as maternity and new born packages

The JvB Philosophy

Jannine who runs the studio believes that photographs should telli a story or express the relationship between people. Everyone has a camera now in their phones and many people have expensive digital cameras, however it takes a skilled photographer to really capture the essence of a person, a family, an event or a business.

The Process

It varies somewhat between the packages available, however the core of the process is getting people to relax and be themselves. Jannine encourages clients to dress in the same way they would normally dress and even bring things that they might normally use as a prop for photographs. Having your photo taken with Jannine is a lot of fun.

Obviously shooting in a studio is fairly limiting, but a full package sees Jannine go out on site with you to take photographs while you do whatever you might normally do. A business you would go about your normal business routine, with a family the kids run off to play (with Jannine chasing them with her camera), make a mess (as kids do) and not even think about the fact they are in front of a camera.

After the photos are taken the next step is to sort through and find the best images. A little bit of Photoshop can be applied to the images to remove blemishes and imperfections. After which the photos are uploaded to a secure website for you to choose your favourite images.

A Family Shoot

Jannine absolutely loves family shoots. This is not just about sitting your kids in front of a camera but capturing the essence of your family. Your kids staring in the camera is not really how you think of your kids. Instead the idea is for you to be a family together and to capture than through the lens. These are not just photos of how you look, but how you feel and how your family interacts together.

Maternity & Newborn Packages

For many new parents having a child is a complete journey. The complete maternity and newborn package maps the journey starting from pregnancy. Obviously you can just buy a package for photos of your baby.

Business Photography

JvB Photography also does business photography. The idea of course is to capture the dynamics of your business. This is about what you and your staff normally do at work. Businesses can greatly benefit from having photos that tell the story of their business.

Studio Shoot

Photo shoots with Jannine take a fair amount of time, and the price reflects this. If you are looking for a faster and cheaper option studio shoots are for you. Recently I had the opportunity for a studio shoot with JvB. This takes 30 minutes, in which time it is easy to take several individual photos as well group photos. It might start with a few formal portraits and then move on to more relaxed and fun images.

Events and more

Jannine can also bring her artistic style to capture your events, whether it is birthdays, weddings or anything else. It doesn't hurt to think outside of the box. Some tourists seek out a professional photo shoot on their visit to Brisbane. Imagine the sort of fantastic photos you could get wandering around the Roma Street Parklands or up on the Kangaroo Point cliffs.

Getting photographs taken with Jannine can be a lot of fun. Her goal is to capture the essence of the moment, of you, your family, your business or an event. JvB is the place you go to if you want something a little more than just static photographs, but instead are seeking out something that not only is artistic but says something about you.
