Together is our favourite place to be
Whether you're expecting your first (second, third, or more), having professional photographs of your newborn, older kiddos, and the larger family is a must! Throw in the whole immediate family and/or extended family for a large group shot, or bring it back to just the two of you as a couple. Families come in all shapes and sizes and I love to photograph them all!
where do your sessions take place?
Sessions can be done in a studio setting or at a location of your choice. With children, it's nice to have them in a home or outdoor environment. They tend to feel much more at ease! My favourite shots are when I can capture children in their element; playing, laughing, hugging, being silly. Natural is the best!
Can you travel to the place we have in mind?
I certainly can! There is small travel fee for anything outside of the Ottawa area.
How long will our portrait session last?
Most sessions packages are based on 1-2 hours of coverage (see the pricing page for details). Additional time is available for a fee.
what should we wear?
Simple, plain-coloured clothes that blend together as a whole are the best. Clothes with subtle patterns can also be very nice. Stay away from bold stripes and checks. I'm also not a fan of the "all white tops and dark bottoms" look. Blending colours with tones that work together look the nicest!
what happens if it rains?
I actually prefer an overcast day, as the lighting is really beautiful and flattering. Even a little bit of drizzle is perfectly fine. If it's a downpour, I'm happy to reschedule for a different day.
Are the photos retouched?
Yes, I always make sure your images look fantastic and are print-ready. Noticeable blemishes and other distractions are removed. For a small fee, further editing can be done including eye and head swaps (it sounds a bit creepy, but you'll never notice the difference!)
