As a parent, it’s so difficult to remember every stage of development and phase in our children’s lives. They grow quickly and as much as you record their funny statements, journal, and recount stories, there is nothing like having a regular activity, day or event documented by a professional. Editorial photography is such a priceless gift because it’s real, simple, organic and YOU. Your session is unique and will represent your family in an honest and artistic way.
Your session will tell your story. Having images of your child feeding their pet gold-fish, snuggling their bear in their brand new big kid bed, riding bikes with siblings, baking, and jumping in rain puddles is timeless and important to document. Archiving your life as it is now is important for you, your children, and generations to come. The details included in your session will tell a story about who you are, where you come from and what’s important to your family.
Once we’ve secured your date with the deposit payment, I’ll e-mail you the session agreement and a questionnaire about your family and expectations for your session. I love getting to know a little about your family beforehand so I’m able to incorporate some of your favorite activities, toys and locations into your session. Before our session, we will discuss things we will do during the shoot. Sessions typically begin in your home and last about 1.5- 2 hours. (a location can also be chosen). I really love beginning sessions in your home, then moving outdoors. (backyard, park, etc.) If we begin in your home, I love to look around your home to find ideal lighting and direct you to those spots when needed. I’m likely to chat with and photograph the kiddos first while we chat about their favourite games, books and they show me their favourite places.
After your session, I cull and artistically process each photo. When they’re finished (up to 10 days), we’ll schedule your ordering session. This can be done over the phone, in person, or via e-mail. This is when you’ll view your gallery and place your order for any additional prints and products you’d like. If products are ordered within the first 7 days of receiving your gallery, you’ll get a 20% discount on your total order.
I keep your gallery active for 6 months, which gives you ample time to share the gallery , download your images, and place your print/product order. Easy, right?
I send your order to the lab immediately and it typically arrives within two weeks. (can depend on the products)
