WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I live in White City, SK and generally shoot in and around the Regina area, but I am always willing to explore! As long as scheduling allows, I am willing to arrange travel to your favourite spot. (There is a mileage/travel fee for sessions outside of the Regina/White City area) There are soooo many hidden gems in this beautiful province! Estevan clients, I do still head down to visit my old stomping grounds so message me to see if I have any dates when I will be heading your way!
WHERE WILL OUR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
That is up to you! Depending on the type of session and your family's needs, we will figure out the best location(s) for your session. I have lots of great spots to choose from or we can find a new adventure together and make your session truly unique. Home is also always a beautiful personalized option for a lifestyle session.
WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?
To me, lifestyle photography is about telling a story. It is more focused on capturing natural moments and interactions than a posed portrait. I like to combine a pretty outdoor location with the closeness and authentic feelings of being together in your own home for a session that really lets you have it all!
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Something that makes you feel good! I find that loose coordination is better than everyone matching and keeping things simple is usually best. Avoid logos and other character-type clothes to help keep the focus on you and your family. My Pinterest boards have some suggestions arranged by season or session type and I am always open to help you out with suggestions during our pre-consultations.
WILL YOU TELL US WHAT TO DO?
I will direct you toward the best light and put you in situations where you can interact naturally with one another, but I will not necessarily pose you. It is my goal to capture you as authentically as possible so try to pretend I’m not even there and have fun together! I promise to adjust you if needed to make a more natural or flattering image. You will be amazed at how many beautiful little moments are captured when you didn't even realize I was shooting! Sessions are sure to be filled with adventuring, laughs, love and probably a little chaos:)
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
If it is an outdoor session and the weather is uncooperative, we will decide together on whether or not to proceed. If necessary, we will arrange to reschedule as soon as we are both available.
WHAT IF THE KIDS DON'T COOPERATE?
As both a mother and an early years teacher, I am no stranger to dealing with kids! We will hope for the best and adjust our session to suit the needs of you family in the time we are together. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to engage your kiddos in the experience and help create new memories... I may also have been known to belt out an unexpected Disney song or declare a tickle fight if the moment requires it.
WHAT IF MY HOUSE IS TOO SMALL/BIG/MESSY?
When opting for an in-home session, it's easy to stress yourself about perfection. Your home is the backdrop of your life as a family. It does not have to be perfect to be beautiful in your photos! I will do a quick walk around when I arrive to check out the light and determine some of the best shooting options. Don’t worry, I will not be afraid to ask for something to be moved if it interferes with the story we are trying to tell.
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
I will usually be very excited after a session and upload photos pretty quickly. I will go through and pick a few favourites to edit and post as a sneak peek on my Facebook or Instagram page within a week or two. I will then edit the rest of your gallery and send you a private link that you can use to access and download your photos within 2-3 weeks of your session. *These turnaround times can vary during the busy fall season.
WHERE SHOULD WE PRINT OUR PHOTOS?
I am so excited to now be able to offer high quality, colour perfected, prints from a pro Canadian lab. You can order a variety of print products directly from your image gallery and have them delivered to your doorstep! Alternately, you are given a Print Release with your gallery and you are welcome to print wherever you like! I'd recommend London Drugs or Black's online, but did I mention you can order higher quality products right from your gallery...? All joking aside, These photos deserve to be off that computer and hanging on your walls or printed to share a little piece of your family story with future generations, so please let me know if there's any way that I can help you with this.
WHEN/HOW DO WE PAY?
Your $100 deposit is due at the time of booking and will hold your spot on my calendar. The rest of your payment is due on or before the day of our session. I accept cash, cheque or email transfer.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?
Yay! I'm so glad you are ready to book. I cannot wait to meet you and your family.
Please email me at email@example.com or message me through my Facebook or Instagram pages (linked above) to get in touch. I can't wait to plan your beautiful session!
