FAQs

Family portrait photography Victoria, BC

+ WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHING FAMILIES?

If you have little ones we'll organize the session around an activity. Instead of treating your kids to ice cream if they pose for portraits, let's actually go for ice cream and I'll photograph that. If you'd like to have a full family story session, we could also do something fun like visiting Butterfly World, bowling, heading to the museum, or playing at their favourite park.

 

For older or adult children, I always keep things relaxed and fun, while still ensuring everyone looks amazing!

+ DO I NEED TO VIEW AND ORDER MY PORTRAITS AT A STUDIO?

If you're a parent that means you are a busy person! That's why I set everything up so you can view and order your photos from the comfort of your home. Best of all -- you can share the link to your personal gallery with others so you don't have to spend the time and cost making copies for friends and family. It's super easy and I'm always available to give you help along the way.

+ CAN I KEEP MY PHOTOS PRIVATE?

Absolutely. I always respect your wishes if you don't want photos of your family shared on my blog or social media.

+ I WANT CANDID PHOTOS OF MY FAMILY BUT I DON't WANT TO LOOK BAD. DO YOU STILL FIX BLEMISHES?

First of all, you're going to look awesome in your portraits! Blemishes and double chins will definitely be fixed without looking fake.

 

As a self-conscious person myself, I understand that you want flattering photos, and we can still achieve this without any stiff-and-formal posing.

 

In my years as a wedding photographer I've photographed thousands of people. I know how to make you look awesome without things feeling forced. Plus, I'm happy to give you some ideas and suggestions to get it all going so it's fun.

I am also always happy to take a few frame-worthy, traditional look-at-the-camera-and-smile photos during our session. With some families it's better to do the traditional stuff at the beginning, and with other families it's better to do the traditional stuff after your kids have had a chance to have fun. I always go with what is going to work best for your kids.

+ DO YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE PHOTOGRAPHING CHILDREN ON THE AUTISTIC SPECTRUM?

Yes, and I customize the session for your child's needs. Let's chat and I'm happy to go over more about my approach.

+ DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?

Yes. Mini-sessions are 15-20 minutes and they are offered at select times of the year.

+ DO YOU OFFER HAIR & MAKEUP?

Absolutely. I work with a fantastic stylist who will come to you.

+ WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

I photograph family portraits in my beautiful home city of Victoria B.C. on Vancouver Island - in Canada's rugged west coast. You'll notice a few family portraits in the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, where I used to live part-time. I travel there frequently to visit friends, so please reach out if you're visiting. If I'm there when you are I'd love to take your family portraits at the beach or in the jungle.

+ WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?

Prices vary depending on the amount of time you'd like and what you'd like included (digital files, an album, framed prints, etc.). Please get in touch and I'll send you all the info!
