QUESTIONS

A collection of our most common questions and answers.

Families should book 1-2 months in advance and maternity and newborn clients should book in the 2nd trimester in order to avoid disappointment and hassle later.

Absolutely! You can order digitals a la carte outside of a collection for $1200 plus HST. Many of our clients find the best value in collections, and they include various numbers of files.

The booking fee ($200 most sessions, $300 newborn) covers time, talent, editing, and use of client closet and props. No printed products or digital images are included with the booking fee.

Most sessions take about 4 weeks to edit and make ready for your in-person reveal and ordering appointment. This is when you are invited to the studio to view your images on our big digital projection screen, select your favourites, and touch and feel all the product options before placing your order. It’s like a night out at the movies, and you are the stars!

Good news: If you order multiple pieces of wall art, I will deliver and install it for you! If you are going the DIY route, choosing a hanging space under softer artificial light or bounce light, out of the direct rays of the sun.

You don’t have to prep your children to “smile” or “listen to the photographer”. I’m pretty silly and really good at judging a situation. If we have an off day or poor weather, we can always try again another day.

You don’t have to be overly matchy-matchy, but do try an co-ordinate. It’s ok to choose a family of colours like fall tones, cool tones, or jewel tones. Choose items that are well fitted and not loose. Check out my Pinterest Clothing Inspo board here.

Yes! Along with family, maternity and newborn sessions we also offer pet sessions, grad portraits, and business headshots. Check out our portfolio and blog to see more.

Maybe… We only accept wedding clients who we vibe with REALLY well. We love small and intimate weddings, especially if you have something alternative going on. If this sounds like you, get in touch and we’ll setup a time to chat and see if we might be a fit.

• All props will be washed with warm water and soap, and / or steamed if possible.
• Photographer will wear a mask if social distance can not be maintained during sessions (ex: newborn sessions), and at client’s request. Clients are not required to be masked in the studio at this time.
• Clients will cancel their appointment within 24hrs if they or anyone in their household are experiencing any of these symptoms: Fever, cough, dizziness, lack of taste/smell, fatigue (not from lack of sleep).
