~ storytelling sessions ~
These sessions are offered to celebrate you and your family’s life. Don’t wait for the perfect outfits, the perfect house, the perfect smiles or whatever your perfect is… these moments are fleeting!!! Let me into your life and document the beauty that is your family. These include Maternity and Newborn Sessions as well!
A Documentary Family Session Fee is $425. This includes my time and talent for the day. Prints, albums and digital files are available for purchase separately.
Would you like a short maternity session or do you just need a quick and simple portrait for yourself, your business, social media? I offer a 45min Simply Portrait Session as well that includes 10 high resolution files.
contact me for print and digital file package info!
Do these sessions include the files?
The Documentary Family Sessions do not include files. I found that offering the files separately was easier for clients as some don’t want to pay for an ‘all-inclusive’ package before seeing the final images. This allows you the option to pick and choose between images, or purchase the whole collection after you’ve seen the images and fall in love with them.
How do I choose between the images? Do you send them to me?
Roughly 3 weeks after your session, you’ll receive a link to an online gallery where you can view all the edited images. From there, you can mark your favourites, purchase and download files.
Can I print the photos myself or do you do that for me?
You can order prints directly through your gallery!!! There are lots of printing options with different sizes, finishes, framing, calendars, cards etc. All of the print products listed in your gallery are produced through professional photo labs who have very high standards for quality and consistency. I highly recommend going this route! If you have a favourite print place and are sure of their quality, you can definitely print through them after purchasing and downloading your high resolution files.
What does a photo session look like? What do you do?
I really try to capture the beauty in the every day moments rather than staging something unauthentic. There is definitely a time and place for posing, which I offer in all my sessions as its nice to get everyone looking into the camera for a traditional photo grandma will love. But from there, I encourage you to look at each other, tickle the kids, pile on dad, kiss each others cheeks.. I guarantee you’ll love these snaps more! Aside from these, I’ll be hovering around for the bulk of our time together as your fam goes about some fun and natural activities such as reading books, playing games, going for a walk, baking cookies, or jumping on beds. This session is low pressure!! You don’t need to scrub the house, you don’t need to create the perfect day, we’re going to make beautiful, hilarious and memorable photos together of you and family because every day life provides endless charm.
