Francesca Allen is a professional photographer based in Rapid Creek, Northern Territory
Lovely to meet you, my name is Francesca and since I was 8 years old I have seen the world through a camera lens. As a child, I used to put on film everything: every little family and school event, holiday or gathering, but also my dog's daily routine, my new pair of shoes, my sisters haircuts, my teddybears and the list goes on. Then like today, it was all about capturing memories and making moments last forever. I never thought about it as a career until I started travelling in my early 20s. The close encounter with wildlife, natural disasters and different cultures has made my passion stronger and my pictures more engaging; it has given me the will to pull up my sleeves and learn what it takes to make photography my profession. Four amazing years working in the UKs leading Family Photography Studio Venture", has given me the tools and the experience to call myself a professional photographer and have allowed me to photograph my favourite subject: people! My work has been recognised in the yearly Award Winning Stories Book in 2014, 2015 and 2016. In March 2015 I won the Venture Photography Gold Award Our faithful friends in the Families with Pets Category. In 2016 I moved to Australia with my other half and partner in adventures Phil, to our beloved Darwin where we had spent many months during our travel years. Here I am making my dream come true, my own Family Photography business.
To me Family Photography is about capturing and celebrating Love. Its not about what people look like, its not about saying cheese! while looking at the camera. Its about relationships, characters and how you interact together. Its about capturing the loving way you look at your children or at your other half, about stopping time as you laugh together while having fun. Time flies, children grow up quickly, we are all forever changing, but photography allows us to keep moments forever. I believe that family photographs should cover our walls, a constant reminder of the love that surrounds us and of how lucky we are. My aim is to make your photoshoot a fun, relaxed and unforgettable family experience, to show you natural images that will blow you away and create a piece of art for your home that you will cherish forever.
I believe that Professional Photography = Science + Sweat + Art
When you choose me as your family photographer, this is what you are paying for: My technical photographic skills and knowledge. Anybody can buy a camera these days, but you need to know the rules (and when to break them) to be able to make magic. I strive to constantly learn new techniques, try new ideas and grow professionally. (Science) My time and effort preparing for your session, carrying equipment, running after children (and sometimes grownups) making them laugh, lying in the sand or climbing up rocks to capture your story from the perfect angles. Photography is also a physical job. (Sweat) My ideas. My ability to work with you in order to capture your personalities and relationship in a natural way. My creativity and imagination when your photograph becomes a piece of Art through direction, composition, post processing and product design. (Art)
