Families in The Picture at Fed Square


Federation Square

Melbourne families will be put in the picture at Fed Square over the weekend when family Christmas Portraits will be taken by a professional photographer in residence between 12.00pm and 4.00pm. on Saturday and Sunday.



Federation Square filled with a forest of two hundred and fifty pine trees provides a perfect and unique festive backdrop for family portraits with all of the kids lined up to candid shots as children play hide and seek In the Pines.



Happy snaps for best mates or group portraits taken In the Pines at Fed Square will be posted on The Projects website at and can be downloaded FREE by family and friends locally, interstate or overseas.

Joe Norster from The Projects said, the free professionally taken photos are a great way of sending a photo back home easily and also a way of maintaining a connection with family and friends during Christmas.

"The backdrop of 'In the Pines' combined with the highly recognised architecture of Fed Square, which has had eight million visitors in the last twelve months, will make your 2012 Christmas a special one for your Christmas album," Mr. Norster said.
