THE STORYTELLING SESSIONS



Capturing the big moments.. and the little ones in between !


The photos you have of your growing family will be something you'll look back on and feel like you are in that moment all over again !


Our session can look like, running across beaches, exploring the forest, or wading in the water at sunset. Lazy afternoons at home snuggling in bed with your kids. Running a muck around the house, cooking up a storm, whispering secrets, hand holding, and high fives.


I will capture your story in the most true to your way I can, giving space for real moments of love, laughter and joy.


Let’s capture these timeless, colorful and joyful moments together!

YOU'VE GOT QUESTIONS ? I'VE GOT ANSWER FOR YA !

Session Timeline

1. BOOK : Book in session date, pay deposit, complete questionnaire and agreement.

2. PREPARE : Decide on location and outfits. Read through the client guide. I will touch base all along the way.

3. SHOOT : I'll touch base and confirm weather and location.

4. DELIVERY : Photo reveal day! You will receive your images within 2 to 3 weeks of your session via an online gallery.

Do you deliver all of our photos?

YES ! The only exception is for the mini sessions where you only get 8 digital photos of your choice, which means you get to pick your favorites and you can order extras.

Of course for every gallery I don't include the images that are blurry, unflattering (we all make funny faces sometimes!), the ones where you're mid-blink or saying something, or when there are multiple images of the same moment.

While there is no rule on how many images I deliver, and it always depend from one session to another, you will get at list 30+ photos during a full session with me.

Do we receive non-watermarked images as well as the printing rights ?

I don't watermark any of my images (except when you need to pick your favorites from the mini session) And that's why I'm going to ask if you'd please tag me in the caption when you post your images on social media. I rely heavily on referrals and word of mouth, which mostly comes from clients sharing my work! It really means the world to me when clients tag me!

And yes, the printing rights of the images is transferred to you upon delivery of your gallery. That means that you are able to save and print these images as many times as you'd like.

But PLEASE, don't print your pictures at Walmart. You invested in amazing, professional images and Walmart prints do photos a huge disservice. I would be more than happy to assist you in printing your images or even creating a beautiful photo album that can be treasured for generations!

What if we are super awkward in front of the camera ?

I don't think I have photographed a single person who hasn't said this. So trust me, you're not alone! But also trust me when I tell you that after the first 20 minutes or so, once people have gotten all the silly giggles out, they stop noticing the camera as much. I’ll guide you every step of the way and give you gentle direction and prompts throughout so you never feel stuck or unsure of what to do. Focusing on having a fun family hour of play and connection is where the very best images are made. So just trust the process and come to the shoot open-minded, it's going to be a great time!

Okay, I'm ready to book you for my session. Is there a deposit? Contract ?

Yeah ! Let's do this dang thing!!

After we talk about all the logistics I will send over a contract and an invoice. From there you will be able to pay a deposit to secure your date and time. I require a 20% reservation retainer of the session cost to reserve your spot that will be applied to the total cost of your collection.

What is it like working with you?

During my sessions I love to give my clients prompts over poses.
What does that mean?
It means I will give you an action that requires movement. There may be times where I'm not saying anything, that's because I'm liking what you're doing so just keep doing what you're doing, it's great!

I love in-between moments as much as intentional ones so you will see me taking pictures of you while you walk to a new location, while you're just talking to your loved one, or smoothing out wrinkles on your dress.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes please!! The answer has always, and will always, be YES!

Cats, horses, cows, lizards, birds, snakes, anything are welcome!

Do you backup your images?

Yes ! The cameras I use have two card slots, which means that each picture is saved on two different storage cards when it's taken. That way if a card corrupts (it doesn't happen often, but it CAN happen!) there is another copy.
As soon as I get home I immediately back up all images to two different
external hard drive. Means there are always 4 copies, all on different cards or drives at all times before your images are delivered to you.

After I deliver your images I archive them and keep two copies for the rest of my lifetime! This isn't something many photographers offer but I know how it feels to lose important images.

When will we receive our images?

During busy season you can expect your gallery back between 2-3 weeks for regular sessions and 1-2 weeks for mini sessions.
During slow season you can expect your gallery back between 1-2 weeks for regular sessions and within a week for mini sessions.
