Hi and welcome to our Family session information page.
I very much hope to photograph your family! I hope this FAQ helps but please don’t hesitate to reach me if you have any other questions!
Studio or Outdoors?
I have a beautiful home studio in Cordova Bay which is easily accessible and lovely to use all year round. However I recommend booking an outdoor whenever possible as the Victoria scenery is so wonderful to incorporate in a family session. This is especially true if you are more than 5 family members.
Which days are you available?
My session days are Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. The weekend spots are very popular and are booked up months in advance so be sure to book as early as possible.
How much is the Family session?
My family sessions are $475 + tax and include 15 digital files with print release. I usually present 30 to 40 images to choose from and additional images are available for purchase if you love them all!
*For large family sessions (8 or more) there is an additional $100 fee.
What would I wear?
I recommend light colored clothing (pink, grey, blue, neutrals). Avoid logos, branding or loud patterns as they can be very distracting and date your photos. I don’t think everyone should be dressed the same but if your family members stay in 3 to 4 colours & tones, it should keep a lovely harmony in the final images. For example Light pink, light grey and dark grey… I also have a few Pinterest boards filled with styling ideas for some inspiration. Family styling spring & summer | Family styling Fall
When should I book my session?
I usually recommend booking your Family session 1 month ahead to get the day and time you prefer.
Do you offer mini sessions?
I only offer mini family sessions twice a year. These sessions are limited and fill up very quickly. They are usually fall mini sessions or XMAS mini sessions. These session are usually offered to my newsletter subscribers first and if I still have spots available, I then offer them on Facebook and Instagram You can sign-up below to join my VIP list.
Do you offer more than digital files?
Yes, I am a full service photographer which means I have in-person order appointments available. I offer archival prints, custom wall art (canvas, metal, acrylic, framed) photo jewelry, custom designed albums (3×3 to 12×12) and more.
I’m ready to book, what’s the next step?
Call or email me so we can choose a day and time that works for you. Once our date has been chosen I will sent you a quick questionnaire to find out more about your goals and preferences for our session. A non-refundable deposit will be needed to save your spot.
