Pricing

First of all, hello!!

And thank you for stopping by and getting some more info on my sessions.  Please know, first and foremost, I absolutely love what I do, and feel beyond honoured to be capturing your family’s memories.  To document your family ‘story’, frame by frame….priceless.  My sessions are super casual, full of energy, and truly, feel more like friends hanging out.  I am there to capture the little moments, the big moments, the giggles, the snuggles, the running, the jumping, the in-between moments…and a few posed pics, because sometimes it’s nice to have everyone close together, smiling at the camera!

I capture your family the same way I do my own, because I know just how much those ‘moments’ mean to me.  Oh my gosh, then having those memories on your wall….where you get to giggle at them every time you walk past them….seriously, I could go on forever about how in love I am with all of this!  Feel free to head on over to my About Me page to hear me ramble on a bit more about my love of photography, lol.

 

SESSION DEETS…

The session prices noted below are session fees only.  This fee is for my time and talent on the day of our shoot, and extensive post production work.

Every image delivered to you in your final gallery is individually edited. These artistic and professional edits go beyond just adjusting colour and exposure.  I put the time and attention into the little details too…like lightening under the eyes (bc no one likes dark circles), removing minor blemishes, drool, and runny noses (yup!), getting rid of distractions from the background like rogue logs or photo bombers at our outdoor location…honestly, the list goes on. Your family photographs are priceless art and should be treated like that every step of the way.   And when you’re ready to print your images, rest assured that the ones you download from your final gallery are high quality, full resolution and ready to print.

Print products and digital files are not included in the session fee.

 

FAMILY SESSION  |  $225 session fee

Your lifestyle session is shot at the location of your choice. – a favourite beach, park, your home, neighbourhood or maybe somewhere new. Our session will last about 1 1/2hrs, and will be, of course, full of snuggles, laughter and fun!!  A week or two after, you will receive a link to your private online gallery where you will view 35-50 proofs (which will be a mix of colour and b+w images, each format chosen to best represent the emotion of the image). 

Once you’ve had a chance to look through your gallery of proofs, you will be ready to choose the Collection that’s best for you. Collections are how you purchase your digital images.  The $225 session fee is for my time and talent on the day of our shoot and during the editing process.  Digital files are NOT included in the session fee.  I’ve attached all the Collection pricing/deets below 🙂

Once you’ve picked your Collection, I will get editing away to put those final touches on your images.

NEWBORN SESSION  |  $275 session fee

This incredible time in your life is captured in a relaxing, unposed, lifestyle fashion. The session takes place at your home,  lasts 2-4 hrs and runs at baby’s pace – lots of time for changes, feeds & snuggles.  A week or two after, you will receive a link to your private online gallery where you will view 35-50 proofs (which will be a mix of colour and b+w images, each format chosen to best represent the emotion of the image).

Booking a date…since we never know when baby will actually say hello, I typically wait to hear from you that it’s go time and you’re off to the hospital, or a simple text when baby’s born is great too. I then check my schedule and do my best to offer a couple of time slots in the next 4-7 days. This gives you time for your stay at the hospital and a couple days at home to settle in. And if you need more time before the shoot, that’s ok too!! It’s a major shift in your world, and I care most that the session is relaxing and fun, so I am more than happy to wait to shoot for another week or two. Baby’s tiny little details will still be just that…tiny and absolutely amazing!!!  I typically photograph newborns on weekday mornings, but if that doesn’t work with your family schedule, we can look at a weekend morning as well.  No matter what, we will get a perfect date 🙂 

Collections of digital files and print products start at $425.

 

WELCOME BABY PACKAGE  |  $375 session fee 

This is the perfect way to capture such an amazing time in your life!  From bump to baby!   It includes a Mini Maternity Session AND a Full Newborn Session. Your Mini Maternity session is 45 minutes, and shot at the North Shore location of your choice, outdoors or in your home, shot with natural light.  The Newborn Session takes place at your home, typically within baby’s first 5-10 days,  lasts 2-4 hrs and runs totally at baby’s pace – lots of time for changes, feeds & snuggles of course.  

A week or two after your newborn session, you will receive a link to a private online gallery of proofs where you will view your maternity and newborn images.  Your images will be a mix of colour and b+w, each format chosen to best represent the emotion of the photograph 🙂  

Once you’ve had a chance to look through your gallery of proofs, you will be ready to choose the Collection that’s best for you. Collections are how you purchase your digital images.  The session fee is for my time and talent on both of our shoot days and during the editing process.  Please see the attached Welcome Baby Collections pricing guide for your package options.

Once you’ve picked your Collection, I will get editing away to put those final touches on your images. 

Every image delivered to you in your final gallery is individually edited. These artistic and professional edits go beyond just adjusting colour and exposure. I put the time and attention into all the little details! Retouching baby’s skin to help reduce things like baby acne and fingernail scratches.  Minimizing some of the more distracting flaky skin, while still leaving enough to document that stage..it’s such a beautiful sign of newness. Lightening under the eyes for mom and dad cause I know you are sooo tired.  Honestly, the list goes on. Your family photographs are priceless art and should be treated like that every step of the way. And when you’re ready to print your images, you can trust my professional lab to bring you the best results! Want to print on your own? No problem. The images you download from your final gallery are high quality, full resolution, and ready to print. 

Collections of digital files and print products start at $525.
