What is the process of booking:


The process of booking is super easy and clients are capable of building their own custom image collections ensuring that they are purchasing the finished products that they love!   Most clients invest between $500-$2,000; some less, some more.  

Step #1:  Let's set a date and location!  

Whether you are looking for that urban feel, maybe a bit more rustic; down to a soft airy sandy beach setting, we have you covered!!  I do have a few locations that I shoot at regular but I am always up for new ideas and new spots!!  Once we figure out a date and time that works best for both of us, we will make it official!  This is where you will pay your retainer and fill out the online booking form I will send over to you!!  Once everything is settled, that date is yours!

Step #2:  Before your photoshoot:

I will be available for a consultation prior to your photoshoot where we can meet and discuss your wardrobe and location ideas!  I can help you design your photoshoot to your taste and with my expertise help you dress appropriately for the style you are looking for!

Step #3:  The day of your photoshoot:  


On the day of your session, be prepared to smile lots, laugh and have fun!! Relax and let me show you how gorgeous your family is!!  Sessions typically run from 1.5 - 2 hours long and here we will create everlasting memories!!


Step #4:  Your Reveal and Ordering Session:


Pending on the season, our turn around time is roughly 2 weeks.  After these two weeks, you are invited back to the studio to fall in love and relive your whole session all over again.  At this point, you will narrow down your favourite portraits and make ALL FINAL decisions in regards to your portrait order.  Be prepared to pay for your order at this time.  It is very important that any and all decision makers be present during this ordering session.  All ordered images will be archived for 90 days.  Any UNORDERED images are permanently purged from our system after the expiration.  Online proofs are available for 3 days before ALL orders must be placed.


Step #5 Receiving your Products and Prints: 


You’ve placed your order during the ordering session and you can not wait to get the final products in your hangs.  Prints usually arrive 5-7 days later, albums, canvas and other specialty products can take 7-12 days to arrive.  Now to show off your images!!
