Portraits

60 minute outdoor or indoor session

This session is all about letting kids being kids! Let them be their silly selves. I always have an outdoor portrait session for my own kids on their birthdays. It’s a great time to capture them each year and see how much they’ve grown! Daily activities are also fun to photograph as life is made up of many small things which are just as important. Here's a few ideas:

• birthdays
• milestones
• everyday activities: making cookies, playing with Lego, dressing up, playing at the park, walking the dog, playing in puddles...

30 minute outdoor or indoor session

Sometimes you might want a shorter session for your kids. This one is just 30 minutes and is a great way to capture a milestone in your child's life. Is your child starting kindergarten? Have they lost a first tooth? Is your baby all grown up and is soon to graduate high school?

What do you want your children to remember about their family as they grow up? When was the last time you had group photos taken? My family sessions are fun, relaxed and are basically me shooting while you play together. We can shoot outdoors, or on location in your home using natural light.

• yearly family portraits
• casual family lifestyle
• family fun activity: playing frisbee, baking cookies, jumping on the trampoline...

60 minute outdoor session

Think about how you’re feeling right now. You both have found each other. You’re meant for each other. That feels amazing, right? It’s my job to recreate these exact feelings again. And I promise you will when years from now, you look back at your photos captured in this moment.

Ready to pop the question to your significant other? How amazing would it be to have that moment caught on camera?

Are you already married and want a crazy excuse to put on your wedding dress again? We could do a really fun trash the dress session! I’m thinking of in the ocean, sand, or dirt, help from your toddler with paint, scissors, glitter... The sky is the limit!

• surprise proposal
• engagement
• anniversary
• trash the wedding dress
• just because!

Babies grow so fast, especially in their first year. Here’s a few suggested times to photograph babies and capture their little personalities:

60 minute indoor or outdoor session depending on baby's age and the time of year

• 1 month
• 3 months
• half birthday / sitting up (6+ months). Half birthdays are great for a cake smash in your kitchen! You can use 6 cupcakes, or cut an actual cake in half!
• 9 months
• walking!
