Pour la Famille

Indoor or Outdoor Session

Ameline Studio is a luminous, comfortable studio in Gold Coast, next to Lincoln Park, with easy parking nearby. Depending on your preferences and the seasonal weather, we also offer outdoor sessions.

Together Time

Your family deserves the very best. No matter how big or small, we can customize your session to meet your needs. Our sessions are relaxed, with an emphasis on living and enjoying the moment, thanks to efficient, natural posing. 

Incredible, Honest Images

We pride ourselves in our ability to bring a unique eye to capture your family's energy and dynamics. So we will guide you to get these pictures of all of you that look just like you, but also of smaller groups of your family, like siblings together, grandparents and grandkids. 



You want a caring, simple and modern approach to create lasting memories.

Ameline Studio has a passion for capturing beautiful images that truly reflect your family dynamics and the loving bond you share for each other. We love creating for you, memories that you can look back on with emotion and pride, and cherish forever. 

What Makes Us Different


Our commitment is to make your experience smooth, cozy, and joyful. We prioritize well-being and believe in having some downtime to let your kids get comfortable and have their personalities shine through.

We will take the time to get to know you and your family, and work with you to create meaningful images that you will love and treasure.

Frequently asked questions

When should we book for our family photo session?

— When you know you want to work with us, kindly reach out. The earlier we can plan details, the better, as it ensures that your date can be secured on our calendar. Spring and Fall are busy times, when outdoor sessions are reserved rapidly. Prefer privacy, air conditioning, and no bugs? Come in the studio for your session.

Publishing on the internet and social media?

— All the pictures on this site intend to show you a snippet of our sessions. We accommodate clients' requests to restrict their session gallery or photographs from public use. In such events, a nominal fee of the session fee applies. We highly value your preferences and personal choices and always prioritize communication, respect, and thoughtful collaboration to ensure our clients feel comfortable with the use of images. 

Non-cooperative kids?

— We have all the experience handling many situations, and making sure we have some downtime, so that you and your little ones are comfortable and having a great time. The more fun the moment is for children, the more likely they will be willing to participate and let their personalities shine. We might encourage a few silly faces, par ci par là, so they can play and open up!
