Frequently asked questions
When should I book my newborn session?
I book a limited number of sessions per month, so it’s best to book your newborn session sometime within your second trimester. Sessions are best when scheduled within 14 days of birth in order to achieve the beautiful curled up poses you see in my portfolio.
What kind of poses are included?
I use more of a baby led posing approach - I let these little ones tell me which poses they are willing to do or not, and trust me when I say they will let me know! Not all babies allow me to pose them in certain poses - I never force a pose or continue with a pose I feel is unsafe.
Do I have to bring anything for my session?
My style, when it comes to newborn and child photography, is simple, monochromatic, and natural. My studio is filled with simple, understated props because I want the focus of the images I create to be about baby. You are more than welcome to bring a special item you want included in your session, but please give me a heads up beforehand so that I can see if I will be able to make it work for your session.
What about a family session?
Yes! I love family sessions. Outdoor sessions are only available between May – October and are scheduled one hour before sunset! I know this may seem late for your kids, but trust me, kids are usually on their best behavior and extra snuggly when they’re allowed to stay up a little past their bedtime! My family sessions are a combo of posed and candid, and are very laidback. I let kids be themselves; I often have them run, jump and play to take the focus or stress off of getting the ‘perfect’ image which often results in THE perfect images!
What should we wear for our family session?
All I ask is to NOT to show up in matching everything! Wear something that is comfortable, fits well and shows off your personalities. Think coordinating colours not matching!
What about winter family sessions?
I have booked winter sessions before and they are absolutely beautiful but MUCH more difficult to schedule based on weather. If you have your heart set on a winter session, contact me and I’m sure we can figure it out!
What is the investment?
There are session options customizable for every budget. Clients can expect to invest between $150+hst to $500+hst. Sessions are all inclusive with no further purchases required. All sessions come with high resolution digital images with print release, and access to at-cost professional products.
