LIFESTYLE + FAMILY SESSIONS

Ask yourself this: why do you want to have your portraits taken? What’s the story that you want to tell? What feelings do you have at this point in your life that you want to remember later? Let’s work together to create a custom session that can best reflect your personal story at these meaningful points in your life.

THE EXPERIENCE

1: BEFORE THE SESSION

I know how stressful it can be to coordinate photos—there are outfits to choose, a location to select, and so many expectations to live up to, right?

Take a deep breath, because I’m here to help. Once you pick your session date, you'll receive a Welcome Email with many tips on how to prepare for your session and how to choose outfits for your whole family.

This Welcome Email also includes a short questionnaire about who is in the session, a brief description of personality and age group of child(ren) and the general style you’re looking for etc. Basically, I just want to know your needs and personal style so that I can bring out the real YOU and maximize our time together during your photo shoot in a relaxing setting.

2: THE SESSION

All the outdoor sessions are scheduled 1-2 hours after sunrise and 1-2 hours prior to sunset to capture your session during the golden hour.

 

Depending on the age of session participants, I’ll use a mix of prompts and movement to get the most natural responses in your photos. For very young children, I like to focus on play-based photography and movement. Little ones aren’t always known for sitting still, so I like to capture them as they are so you can remember their spunky little selves.

My Hybrid In-Home Newborn lifestyle sessions offer a combination of family photos, snugly ones with parents and siblings (note that siblings two and younger may not always cooperate for posed photos with baby and may require a parent to take part), and a few posed newborn portraits from the comfort of your own home.

Do you still feel a bit nervous to be in front of the camera? We'll have lots fun and laid-back session where I'll make even your husband smile so there is no need to worry about.

3. AFTER THE SESSION

Within 2-4 weeks, your online viewing session will be ready. At this online session, you'll get to access your private online gallery, view the hand-picked, fully edited images by me and make your selection for your digital files that are already included in your session package. You are welcome to upgrade to purchase more images too.

You'll also have a chance to order print products with a one time discount code, so take advantage of this opportunity to print some of your favorites images to display in your favourite spaces for you and your family to enjoy!
