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. These sessions are fun and relaxed. I'm happy to suggest some great locations depending on the setting you'd like (field, beach, forest, mountain etc.) and I am available within the greater Victoria area. If you'd like an adventure session please inquire, these can be like a mini day trip where I photograph your family exploring, or enjoying an activity with a beautiful variety of candids and some posed. An example: visiting Avatar Grove or Botanical Beach, a local hike, surfing in Tofino, etc.
What if the weather is awful when it‚Äôs our planned session time? Sometimes we just can‚Äôt work around that, and so it‚Äôs no problem to reschedule if we have a lot of rain or extreme wind.; What do we wear? I am happy to help discuss your vision and lend some advice for wardrobe. If you have a colour in mind, or style, or maybe even have one item of clothing you know you‚Äôd like someone to wear.. I can help you piece together a cohesive and pleasing overall look for your family!; What if my child is really shy? I am not sure they will cooperate. We will make the session fun! Usually the case is a shy little one to start, and by the end I‚Äôve got a new small friend giving me high fives. If it gets too overwhelming, it‚Äôs no problem to take a break from shooting too. With years of working with children during sessions, I‚Äôve got quite a few tricks up my sleeve.

Love love love capturing gorgeous portraits of our beautiful pets.I offer in studio portraits, great for kittens or other small animals. Well behaved dogs are definitely welcome as well.For the dogs though, I love capturing them having fun out in nature. I am happy to meet at one of our many beautiful off leash beaches or dog parks, or alternatively join on a small hike.Humans are welcome to step in for some pictures together too for all outdoor sessions!
Who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt!? I started making hand drawn scavenger hunt pages when my kids were small to keep their interest when we hiked. They love being able to check things off their list as we explore our favourite parks and trails (and usually earn a treat at the end). I'm so happy to be able to offer these sessions with an extra special takeaway-your own double-sided nature scavenger hunt that you can use again and again! For this photo session, we'll visit a park or trail that's special to you while looking for amazing things in nature to check off our lists. We'll capture lots of candid moments as you and your kids explore our beautiful forests and of course leave time for some family photos surrounded by nature.
