What kind of photographer are you?

A very passionate one! I love capturing connection - it’s the magic of family.

My work centered around the hugs, giggles, and raw emotion of family. I photograph families using natural light, on location.

As your photographer, I know the importance of not just capturing that one stand out image for your wall but capturing the story of you throughout the session. That is why it is my pride and joy to provide a full, gorgeous gallery that speaks to your family.

Where will my session be held?

There are so many gorgeous locations here in Ontario! I can help you find the perfect location for your family or we can do the session in your home. 

How long do sessions usually last? When do they start?

The time of day your session takes place plays a huge role in the outcome of your images. That soft golden light in the early morning and late evening creates such a dreamy feel to your images. 1-2 hours before sunset is recommended; if you have little ones a later nap helps them to be happy and content if it’s a little past their usual bedtime.

Home sessions are generally done late morning when the sun is the brightest and flooding your home with natural light.


When do Newborn Sessions occur?

Newborn sessions happen within the first two weeks of your little one’s birth day.


What should I wear?

This is actually so much fun! I suggest two things - 1. Don’t attempt to ‘match’ but coordinate instead 2. Dress Mom first! Mom, we know your the one typically behind the camera capturing your family at the park, doing their crazy kid antics, and those adorable sleeping faces - this is your time to shine in front of the camera and showcase the love and pride you have for your family. Dress yourself in something you love and feel comfortable in and from there select the children’s and hubby’s outfit based on your outfit. If you need any help I am always on stand by - feel free to send me a message with pictures of outfits and I can help you pick the right pieces!


Will I get my digital photos after the shoot? And how soon?

Photographs are your families treasure and become more and more precious as time goes on. They tell the story of you - and is part of the legacy you have to pass down to your children and grandchildren. Your photographs will be ready within two weeks of your session date and will be sent to you via an online gallery with a downloadable link. I always suggest downloading them right away and backing them up in at least two separate places.


How do you choose which images are in my gallery from our shoot?

I look at each and every image that I take during your session. My goal is provide you with all of the images that truly represent both my artistic style and the beauty of your family.  This is usually about 75 images.
