Parents, I see you. This is for you, the one who has transformed your identity from ‚ÄòI‚Äô to ‚Äòwe‚Äô. I FEEL you. I'm there with you. There is so much joy in your stage of life, whatever that may be. Whether it's your toddler pulling apart the Tupperware cupboard as you cook dinner, the first time your threenager wears big kid undies, or your pre-teen learning some sweet tricks on their skateboard. This is the time. The time everyone talks about wanting back. I'm here to help you remember it all. Mom‚Äôs and Dad‚Äôs, I want you to be in the pictures too. Because you and your kids will be flipping through the pages of this photo album for generations. In this family photo session, you get to be unapologetically you. Coordinated clean outfits, tidy home and best behaviours not required.
My refund policies reflect the fact that I book a limited number of sessions and may have refused other clients your preferred dates. The Session Deposit is non-refundable and considered liquidated damages to compensate me for the loss of opportunity to book another session for the same date and time. If the Session is cancelled 7 or more days before the scheduled date, 100% of the Session Fee may be applied to another session to be scheduled at a mutually convenient time. *Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, if one of your family members is sick you must let me know and we will reschedule the session. If cancelled due to illness, the Session Fee will be applied to the new date. Shoot may be extended with mutual consent. The possibility of an extended shoot should be discussed beforehand. The hourly package rate will apply. Reshoots can be arranged at a cost of 50% of the hourly package rate. Photographer retains copyright over the Photographic Work and is able to use it for self-promotion. The client may make unlimited reproductions of the Photographic Work for family and friends both online and offline. Photoshoots will typically take place rain or shine. For outdoor shoots, an agreed alternate location may be planned in advance. Shoots will only be cancelled and a full refund given in the most extreme circumstances. If the shoot can be rescheduled there will be no additional fees for the customer. 50% deposit at the time of booking, 50% remainder due 3 days after the photoshoot. Payments may be made by credit card upon receiving an invoice.
I would do a photoshoot over a messy kitchen meal, a toy-filled apartment or a spontaneous beach adventure any day of the week. Low light? Haven‘t cleaned in weeks? Cramped spaces? I'm here for it! Bing on the chaos of family life. In the work that I do, I strive to capture authenticity, that light that shines in each of us. My style is to capture life in an unscripted fashion. This is lifestyle photography that is true to life.
School graduation is a highlight for any graduate, and it‚Äôs a great opportunity to capture your children and their friends dressed up and ready to go to their first big event, (as well as the proud parents!) This session could be done at your home before the graduates depart to the party, or at some landmark spot they are going to be visiting before the ceremony/party. Please bring your best outfits and gorgeous smiles.
On your hunt for the perfect family photographer, you have most likely come across a lot of options. Here are the things that make me different from other photographers out there: I am university-educated in photography; I am not self-taught. I carry high-end, professional equipment and duplicate gear just in case one fails or becomes damaged during your session. All my gear is for full-frame equipment only, meaning your photo quality will be prestigious. I favour the use of prime lenses (not zoom lenses), meaning the natural clarity of the photo will be enhanced. I also have a background in modelling, making posing and guiding you and your family seamless during our sessions.
