How Can I Book A Session?
It's easy! Simply send an email or find me on Facebook and say hello! I do require a non-refundable deposit upon booking. Accepted payment methods are Interac e-transfers, cheque or cash.
How Far In Advance Should We Book?
I'm fairly flexible and can usually take bookings for portraits with a couple days notice. As for weddings, it's best to book sooner than later once you have a date firmly set.
Do You Have a Studio?
No. Nor do I bring any studio equipment to our session. I am a lifestyle photographer and prefer to use natural settings and as much natural lighting as possible for a truly authentic look you cannot achieve in studio.
Anywhere you'd like!! I do everything on-location meaning I come to you! Whether you prefer the great outdoors or a cozy session in the comfort of your own home, I'm down for anything! I am also totally willing to travel to wherever you'd like to adventure to. Travel fees apply.
Where Will We Take Our Photos?
I would describe my style as documentary. I have a soft spot for candid shots. I don't focus as much on posing, but rather live in the moment to capture all those beautiful moments you people share!
What Is Your Style?
Heck no! Those just happen to be some of my most favourite shots from a session. Even if I do not always tell you exactly how to stand or where to place your limbs, you are always aware of the camera because lets face it, having someone running around pointing a camera at you clicking away does not go unnoticed. So naturally there's lots of shots looking straight at the camera, families grouped together in a lovely pose and that happens without me giving any instructions whatsoever. And yes, OF COURSE, I do give posing tips from time to time because it is just as important to me as it is to you that all shots are flattering.
So, Do I Get All Candid Shots Orrrr?
How Do I Get My Photos? And When?
You will receive a convenient online photo gallery with a passcode enabling you to download the full album straight to your computer.
Portrait sessions are typically within 1-2 weeks. I usually post a sneak peek fairly quickly within a couple days after the session. A blog post will follow with several of my personal favourites from our time together. Weddings take a bit longer, you can expect to receive those in 6-8 weeks time.
Duh! That's where all the magic happens!! Editing is a key component to photography in the sense it helps maintain a consistent portfolio, a "signature look" if you will. Not to mention, it gives photos that extra boost you can't always achieve by simply pointing and shooting with a camera.
In regards to releasing unedited images, that's a no go from me. Chances are, if I chose not to edit a particular photo, it's for the greater good. Not all shots are flattering, perhaps for a number of reasons, and I use my own discretion in selecting the shots that I believe were the best from our session.
Do You Edit Your Photos? Can I Get The Images You Don't Edit?
Absolutely you can! Real babies, fur babies, the more the merrier!
Can I Bring My Pets?
