PHOTOGRAPHY

Families

happy, unfiltered moments capturing the joy and love in your life

I take the same approach with my family sessions as my wedding photography: fun, bright, natural photographs that tell the story of your life in these significant moments. Photos that I hope that bring you back to remembering the milestones, the love, the laughs and the beautifully personalized adventure that is your life. 

I’m sure you’ve caught yourself saying ‘time is a thief’ at one point in your life right? Well, in today’s busy landscape it’s certainly the case and there’s no better measure than growing a family.

New Arrivals. Where every day is a new adventure. 

Life with Littles. Endless fun in the perfectly imperfect moments.

Maternity. The rush of excitement, anticipation, and love.

It's time to get you those photos to cherish for a lifetime. 

The moments that seem like they could last forever are gone in a flash and we’re left with only a memory.

AS THE DAYS, MONTHS, AND YEARS GO BY, YOU’LL HAVE THE MOST PRECIOUS MEMORIES CAPTURED TO LOOK BACK ON.

Kind Words from past clients

all the love

WHen IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE PHOTOS??

I love shooting with natural light so I usually request that sessions be booked early morning or late afternoon (roughly 1 hour after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset) to take advantage of the soft light that occurs during those times. With newborns or kids it's always best to schedule the session when they are usually happiest - say after a nap or meal.

WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?

Again, I love shooting with natural light so your session can be done outdoors (some ideas are at a park, in your backyard, your cottage, by the beach, sipping coffees on a patio, or walking your dog). I also love documenting you in your home where you would naturally be during this special time.

DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

Nope, I prefer to take my photos in a natural setting with natural light to ensure a candid, lifestyle approach. This is how I approach newborn sessions as well. I prefer to come to your home and use your natural setting and props (i.e. blankets or toys). 
If you'd prefer a studio space I'd be happy to share suggestions, there's tons of beautiful spaces all around the GTA.

Help! My kiddos hate photos!

I love to incorporate regular activities to keep the kids engaged without having to 'pose' for photos. If you regularly play with legos, board games, or puzzles we can incorporate that in your home or if they like playing soccer in the backyard, or any other sport, we can do that outside. And I'm all for taking breaks if needed so you don't feel rushed and pressured.

WHEN WILL I SEE MY PHOTOS?

Sneak peek a couple days after your session and completed gallery to you within 2 to 3 weeks!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

My number one tip: wear what you feel most comfortable in. Some clients dress up in their “Sunday best” while others gravitate towards casual looks. The key is to reflect who you are and what makes you feel great. It’s good to keep coordination in mind but you don’t need to match. In fact, the photos will be more dynamic if you don’t match. Don’t be afraid of mixing prints too. As long as there is one shared colour between the prints then you are good to go. Please stay away from: matching tops, large logos or graphics as they can draw away from you and can be distracting, anything that you can’t freely move in (you might be sitting so you want to be comfortable)
