Victoria BC Newborn and family portrait photography - FAQs

I have a relaxed approach that will allow you to be yourselves. Rather than stiff and formal posing, I focus on creating storytelling images that show the love you have for each other. I know some people are shy about having candid or natural photos of themselves, and that’s why I provide some easy-to-follow directions so you can have fun while looking amazing. That said, I can also offer a 100% documentary approach to your family photos, capturing each moment as it happens. My approach is customizable depending on your needs.

My family portrait photography pricing for Victoria BC can be found at and newborn and baby photography pricing can be found at Pricing begins at $399 and you can choose either a mini-session or a longer lifestyle or documentary session where we plan an activity like hiking, a picnic, a birthday party, mini golf, visiting Butchart Gardens, or a family reunion. Regardless of the amount of time you choose, you will have a variety of images with some candid and others directed. All collections come with a keepsake storytelling slideshow for you to enjoy.

All collections and photography prices include retouched, downloadable digital images. You also have the option of purchasing prints directly from your photo gallery for an extra cost. A professional lab takes care of all the orders, printing and delivery to the purchaser’s door. The lab also creates beautiful canvases. I also create heirloom-quality keepsake albums at an additional price..

Because my approach is more on the natural and candid side, I love to take your family to a place where everyone can have fun and be themselves. Some great locations in Victoria BC include Beacon Hill Park, Government House, Royal Roads or Fort Rod Hill. I also love the Inner Harbour and BC Legislative buildings. Some families also choose to have me come to their home where all your memories are being created. I often take photos of children playing in their rooms or giving me a tour of their house, showing me their favourite toys along the way. With newborn portraits, the majority of people choose to have me come to their home for photos.

I’m available to photograph your family or newborn in the greater Victoria BC area, including Esquimalt, Oak Bay, Saanich, North Saanich, Central Saanich, Langford, Colwood, Sidney, Sooke, Mill Bay and the Cowichan Valley. Travel outside these regions are at an additional cost and I’m happy to provide you with a quote.

I always suggest wearing classic clothing that will stand the test of time. That means avoiding any trendy patterns and sticking with solid colors when possible. You don’t need to match, but you can coordinate to have everyone wearing complimentary colours. I also advise dressing to have a play date and that means comfortable shoes and outfits you can move around in easily.

You’re more than welcome to have your baby photographed in several outfits. I always pause the clock to allow time for changing, feeding and naps.

I’m fairly flexible and I want to make sure your kids are comfortable being photographed. I have a questionnaire you can fill in ahead of time to tell me more about their personalities or if they have any issues being over-stimulated so I can adjust my approach. I am more than happy to arrive a bit early to allow your kids to get to know me and I won’t start photographing them until they’re ready. I don’t charge extra for this time. 

There is no cancelation or penalty fee if you need to postpone or cancel your session.

While I was primarily a wedding photographer for many years, I’ve switched my focus to newborn, baby and family portraits. That said, I would be happy to create a bespoke session for you where you can be the star of your own art.

Although I’m no longer photographing weddings, feel free to get in touch because I have a list of great photographers who have a similar style as mine.
