Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during my session?
I like to take a mix of posed and candid images during the session. My goal is to capture naturally happy expressions and real moments while having fun. Typically, I’ll set you up a pose, we’ll get a great photo of everyone smiling and looking at the camera, and then I might say something to make you laugh or react in a particular way. Have fun with it! By using prompts, we will get beautiful images of you all enjoying each other’s company, smiling, laughing and genuinely having a good time!
Where will our session take place?
Depending on the nature of your session, it will either take place outdoors, or in the comfort of your own home.
Newborn sessions typically take place indoors in your home and family sessions are often on location. However, planning an in home family session is a special way to capture your family in your own environment. It's comfortable, familiar and uniquely you.
I have a variety of outdoor places I can recommend, based on your location, accessibility, preferred scenery and the season we are planning for.
How to book?
Once we have connected and agreed on a session, a non-refundable* retainer of $50 is due immediately to secure your session date and time. This ensures that I create space in my calendar for your family and guarantees your session with me. Final payment is due within 24 hours once the session is complete.
*see terms of contract regarding retainer
How do I choose my photos?
Within a week of the session, I will send you a link to your proofing gallery. I encourage you to sit down with your family and choose the images you want to select from your gallery together. At this time, you are welcome to upgrade your package and purchase additional images. I will send you the pricing options with the proofing gallery.
Once you have selected your favourite images, send me a quick text or email, and within a week, you'll have your finished digital gallery of un-watermarked, high resolution images.
Do you offer prints?
Yes! Each photography package comes with some form of printed image (s), included in the package price.* You will also receive the digital files of your purchased images. This is will give you the flexibility to share online, print, enlarge or create something special with! If you would rather have me print the images for you, I do have access to a professional quality print lab, and a price list can be provided upon request.
