"WHAT DO WE NEED FOR THE SHOOT?"
The biggest thing we need is light - shoots will either be held outdoors or in an area with lots of available natural light. Bring favourite toys, treats & bribes - we all have bad days, even the most well behaved children, and we only have a limited time together. If you have a favourite quilt/blanket, or a chair you would like to use by all means! Outfit changes are also allowed within the allotted time scheduled.
For newborn sessions, I will come to you - be prepared to have your furniture moved around to create a space near windows. I will bring a few props, blankets and baskets but for the most part we will use your baby's adorable things - it's all a part of the conserving memories. Gather their cutest outfits, blankets, hats and toys and we will style the shoot together.
"WHAT SHOUD WE WEAR?"
I recommend complimenting outfits, rather than matching outfits. Choose a few colours and allow for variation between styles. Avoid branded or logo shirts and other items where possible.
Pinterest has some great ideas for "what to wear for a _______ photoshoot." (Fill in the blank with spring, maternity, baby, etc.)
Full (Standard Package): Includes 8-10 hours of coverage, a second professional photographer to ensure you get a great variety of photo coverage, from a few angles and perspectives, approx. 500 images. Plus your choice of an album, or an engagement session.

Add on options include photo box of your favourite prints, Canvas Enlargements. Storybook or Coffee Table Albums, a day of yoga session, a complete off-site health & fitness coaching program to help you look your best. Extra time is always an option and things can always be removed - I'm happy to work together on the perfect plan for you and your budget. Friday & Sunday Rates Available.
"DO YOU TRAVEL?"
Definitely. Travel outside of Waterloo Region is charged at $0.50/km.
Destination Sessions require all travelling expenses to be covered + additional fees may apply. Contact for more info.
"WHEN WILL WE HAVE OUR PHOTOS BACK?"
This varies from 4-8 weeks and depends, on the style of your order, the amount of coverage purchased and the time of year. There are various peak seasons throughout the year, that may cause the photos to take up to 12 weeks.
