Family Portrait Packages
As a fellow Mom I cannot stress enough how important these family portraits are. In our household I'm usually the one taking all the pictures (sound familiar?), but the problem with that is that I'm very rarely included in them. Our children will grow up one day and these photos are what they will look back on and share with their children. Their Mom needs to be included in these memories. Let's get out and have some family fun and capture some sweet memories together (where all family members are included). Yes Mom, this means you too. *wink wink*
All sessions include up to 5 family members, high resolution final digital images, print release rights, custom viewing gallery and downloadable mobile gallery app.

Ready to Begin?
Do I pay up front in full for my portrait session?
No. Only the non-refundable retainer fee is due upon booking your portrait session.
Does it cost extra to do my portrait session in a public park or building?
Yes. Most public spaces require you to purchase a photography permit. I can help source locations for you but I always request my clients to obtain and pay for the permit prior to your session.
How far in advance should I book our portrait session?
It's advisable to book your session well in advance (at least 6-8 weeks or more). This gives us more time to truly customize your session, source wardrobe, book any photography permits needed or studio rentals, and make sure you get your desired date and time.
How long after my session will my soft proof gallery be ready to view?
Within a week or two after your session.
How long after I made my final selections with my final gallery be ready to download?
Within 2-4 weeks after you have made your final selections from your soft proof gallery.
Do you provide a print release with our final gallery?
Yes, I will provide you with a print release along with your final gallery upload. I do advise that you try and print with a premium printer to get the best final results for your prints. If you decide to print with a more cost effective printer, just be aware that colours could be very off compared to your actual digital file. If you would like to be assured excellent quality heirloom prints, I do offer them as an additional purchase in my A La Carte menu.
What if I want all my photos from my session? Can I just get all the RAW, un-retouched images?
No, I'm sorry. This is not something I offer. First off, you would need professional photo editing software just to view the RAW digital files and secondly, I never release un-edited digital files of my work as it does not fit with my brand. You can however, order additional images to be added to your final gallery as an add on to your session package.
