"The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family."
How does the family photoshoot work?
After your portrait session is scheduled (session fee is paid + contract signed) we will schedule an in-person or over the phone consultation. This is the time to fill me in on everything you want from your session. I will guide you every step of the way to make this an easy process with a fantastic end result! I will help you with what to wear, selecting a location, and will discuss how you want to display your finished portraits as artwork in your home.
The Photography Session
I am an on location photographer, which means that on the day of the session we will meet at your residence (for an indoor session) or outside at the agreed location (weather permitting). My portable studio system and experience will ensure we capture the most beautiful images in the comfort of your own home, with the least amount of disruption to your household. I want things to be relaxed, enjoyable, flexible, and as comfortable as possible for you and your family.
The Design & Ordering Appointment
7 to 14 days after your portrait session I will come back to present you with the best hand selected images from your session. We will finish your portraits by designing custom artwork pieces for your home for you to enjoy for years to come. Once the order is placed, it will take 3-6 weeks for the products to arrive and for me to personally deliver your beautiful, custom, heirloom portraits.
What should we wear?
Ideally, it’s best to wear something that is comfortable and makes you feel good. Stay away from clothing with large logos or busy graphics. And of course watch out for outfits that might clash. Rather than match perfectly, think of having everyone wear something that goes together in a natural, yet not overly obvious way. Pick two or three main colours and pick clothes that fit that colour scheme. Solid, neutral colours with a pop of colour works well. Go for classic, not trendy. We can discuss clothing options during our consultation.
Where will the family photo session take place?
I prefer to take family pictures outside (weather permitting), at any location of your choice around Calgary, AB or I can suggest a location. Family photoshoot is all about capturing connection, love and togetherness. I let families be themselves, laugh, play and act silly - always resulting in the best possible shots. I do make sure to get a few posed shots as well.
How long will the family photoshoot take?
Family photo session may take up to 2 hours.
