A family session is all about connection. Those genuine candid smiles and laughs. Not your typical stand beside each other stiff and smile, those pictures show what a person look like. My goal is to create images that make you feel! That when you look at them years down the road you smile because you are taken back to that moment when your children were just little, and you remember the sound of their laugh or the way they looked at you.
Spend half an hour with me showing me how your family likes to have fun. I will capture the smiles and giggles and tender in-between moments. The tired yawns or the crinkled nose when they don't want to smile anymore. I spend the time getting to know you and your kids to help capture genuine moments of connection.
"If you could be anything, what would you be?" Fantasy sessions are just what they sound like! They are pure fun and excitement! I'll help bring your (or your child's) vision to life whether it be a fairy tale, fantasy, superhero, pirate or astronaut or anything else they dream up. Most kids love dressing up! I have a box full of unique costumes which you can look at before your session and get ideas. If I don't have what you're looking for, I will find it!We'll plan out something fun ahead of time, as much as possible will be REAL and I'll add final touches in Photoshop afterward to add the magic!Your kids will love these photos as much as you will! And your whole family will remember the amazing time we had creating them! Included in the session fee are 2 Fantasy / Fine Art photos, plus a proof gallery with all the images (screen size, unedited).Additional image can be purchased for $50.
I know you have a lot of options when it comes to hiring a family photographer, so I very much appreciate you being here! I have my BFA in Visual Fine Arts (SFU 2010) as well as a BEd (SFU 2011). This means I‚Äôm trained in composition, lighting and have worked with thousands of children, teens and adults over my teaching career. I take the stress out of your session planning by helping with wardrobe, timeline planning (don‚Äôt forget about those nap times!), and what to do with your beautiful photos once you get them back after they‚Äôve been expertly edited! During your session I help with how to move in front of the camera, provide prompts for those not as comfortable having their photos done, and get little ones to open up REAL quick. The end result is photos that you will truly love that will last a lifetime (or two)! I love families and children. When I‚Äôm not behind the camera I‚Äôm in front of a classroom - working with children is my passion! Photographing all your milestones is what makes my heart sing. I can‚Äôt wait to chat more about it over coffee or zoom!
