What does it mean to be an: 
‘On Location, Lifestyle Photographer’?

Excellent question! This means I don’t have a studio with a backdrop where I pose you and snap away. Instead, I come to you! We’ll shoot in a place that is meaningful to you and your loved ones. While I will absolutely guide you in the session, I won’t direct you for every shot to the point that all photo sessions look the same. I want to capture what makes you unique; your personality, routines, feelings, and relationships. Nothing makes me happier than documenting candid and genuine interactions that will bring you back to that exact moment in time.


How long is our session?

Sessions typically last around 1.5hrs but will be catered to your specific session/needs/requests. We can easily go longer or shorter depending on multiple factors!


When do we get our photos?

You will receive a {Sneak peak} within the first couple days. All other pictures will be sent within 14 days of the session.


What should we wear?

The most important thing is for all of you to be comfortable. I want you to feel like “you” in your photographs…and the best way to do that is to wear what you normally reach for in your closet. While it’s great to ‘coordinate’ with one another (ie think complimentary colors / style), try to avoid being too matchy matchy (ie everyone in jeans and a white t shirt). Also, it depends on the vibe you’re going for…casual or dressy are both completely fine, it just depends on how you want your pictures to look at the end of the day and what best represents your family. For ideas, click on my Photography Pinterest page and don’t hesitate to ask me any specific questions you may have.


What can we expect from our session?

Since sessions are highly individualized, there isn’t really a blanket answer to this. To give you an idea though:

Fresh 48's {IN HOSPITAL}

Are you looking to have this once in a life time event captured in a meaningful way? I would be incredibly honoured to be a fly on the wall and give you pictures that you will cherish forever. These sessions take place in the hospital within the first 48 hours post birth. I would love to talk more details with you; so please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

 

In Home Newborn

These sessions are held in the comfort of your own home. Generally speaking, the nursery, your bedroom, and the family room is where most pictures will be taken but depending on the lighting and your preference, we can EASILY adjust. Pictures of your newborn will NOT be highly posed ~ i.e. baby in a basket. I aim to capture natural moments as they unfold (you will receive pictures of your newborn in their crib, them cuddled up against you, your baby being changed, fed, etc). I want you to have emotive pictures that speak to your heart and reflect this incredibly special and unique time in your life. This time flies by so quickly and I want you to be able to remember exactly what it FELT and looked like on a daily basis, instead of your baby on a beanbag where they were only put once for photos. Don’t get me wrong…there are incredible photographers that rock that style and the pictures are adorable; it’s just not my personal style.

 

Children & Family

These sessions are highly customizable and we will choose a location based on what best suits your family. This could mean more of a typical outdoor session or it could mean capturing your families favorite activities or routines inside your home (think playing games, cooking, reading stories etc). The goal of these sessions are to capture your children’s unique personalities and the natural love and connection that you as a family share. I promise I will never force your child to stare at the camera and say cheese. Your pictures will be filled with movement and emotion!
