A Family Session typically lasts 90 minutes. This gives us enough time to get a few “all together” shots, a few short breaks for people that need it, and several different combinations of the kids and the parents connecting.
A newborn session lasts from 2-3 hours at your home with time for feeding and changing etc. During your session, we’ll do some pictures of just baby, some of mom with baby, some with Dad and baby and some with all of you together. I can help you with what to wear if you need help deciding.
The best time to schedule your pregnancy session is around 28-34 weeks, when your tummy is nice and round. This will vary with each woman – and some women who carry small, or gain little weight may choose to wait until they are 36-38 weeks. You want to come when you feel good, have a nice belly but before the downward venture begins! Other women who are growing a bit more rapidly, may choose to come around 28-32 weeks. The idea is to come when you are nice and comfortable and have a nice round belly. It is best to schedule at least 2-3 weeks in advance.
Once you’ve booked your session you’ll tell me the look and feel you want your images to have and we’ll work together to determine the best location for your family. If you don’t have any locations in mind, I have a few that I can suggest to you. I prefer to shoot 2 hours before dusk.
TO RESERVE YOUR SESSION
In order to book a session, I require a 50% non refundable deposit to hold your session date. After you book your session, I’ll have a customer information form for you to fill out. I encourage you to write about your likes and dislikes. The more information about your family you provide, the better it is for me to get to know you and help the images to reflect your family. Quite often I will have an idea I’d like to try out, I always make sure that you are game. The balance of your session fee is due when we meet for your session.
About 1 to 2 weeks after your session, you will get an email from me with a few different weekday evening appointment times to choose from. On the day of your appointment, we will sit down and I’ll show you a slideshow of your images set to music. After you’ve admired all of your loveliness, I will help you decide what to do with your favourite pictures!
You are expected to place your order that evening, so make sure all decision makers are present. Please allow 4-6 weeks for your portrait order to be completed.
For a lot of us, custom photography is a luxury, and for that reason, I promise that you will love the pictures from your session.
I used to think that calling photography an investment was a stuffy term used by expensive photographers. Now I’ve come to realize that custom photography truly is an investment.
You are investing in your memories and the more time that passes, the more valuable your images will become.
