LIFESTYLE SESSIONS

Whether you have human babies or fur babies; expecting a little one or wanting to run around with older ones; we’re so happy to offer these sessions to capture genuine, candid and happy images of your family unit.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We shoot family sessions like we shoot our weddings – our focus is on documenting the natural interactions between your loved ones, with a few prompts along the way! We look for the best light (at home, this means a room that’s well lit by a window, not by artifical lights) before setting the scene for you to candidly interact.

If we can give one piece of advice – think about your session as a hangout time. We want you to feel the shoot happening as genuinely as possible. So whether it’s getting up to an activity you’d “usually be doing” (baking, colouring, sports!) or just spending some time in nature as a group, leave the worrying to us!

Of course, we’ll also throw a few proper portraits in the mix (those smiling-at-the-camera shots are important too!). But we firmly believe the images you’ll be looking at years from now will be the ones that are a genuine, happy representation of who your family is.

COSTS AND ALL THAT JAZZ

Sessions are $400 + HST and include up to 45 files and an 8×8 hardcover book of our favourites. Typically sessions last between 45 minutes and 90 minutes, depending on how the little ones in your family are enjoying themselves. There is no rush to complete the session – our goal is to capture you the best we can with the least stress possible!

Note: we still encourage you to print your photos beyond this little book – but we’ll be giving you a lil’ something so you have some tangible memories to share in case life gets busy!
