Is there a best time to schedule family sessions?

Schedule anytime of the year! I prefer to shoot an hour after sunrise, or an hour before sunset because the light is nicest. If these times don’t work for you, we can adjust for what works best. Summer is a great time for warm weather and pretty sunsets. Spring has gorgeous blossoms, and Fall is great if you want a current photo for the holiday card. Popular milestone baby sessions are 6 months and 1 year. Most babies sit up at around 7 months, so that's a consideration.

Is there a best time to schedule maternity photos?

Schedule whenever you feel best in front of the camera! Anytime between 26 and 36 weeks is great. Try not to schedule sessions after 36 weeks, as babies can arrive early and you might miss the chance to have a session.

What should we wear?

Clothing choice is ultimately up to your personal style, though I recommend choosing 3 colors, and dressing within that palette. Coordinated but not matching is the goal. Trendy styles will date your photos quickly, but classic looks make for timeless images.

What should I bring?

For sessions with kids, please bring snacks, blankets, and stuffies to make your kids feel relaxed. A treat for the end of the session is a great incentive! For outdoor sessions, please bring a blanket to sit on. It’s nice to have a heavy one underneath and a pretty one on top, when the ground is damp.

Can we bring props?

I don’t consider myself a prop photographer, but will accommodate 1 or 2 if you have a particular announcement you’d like to make, for example sonogram photos or baby shoes at maternity sessions, teddy bears for milestone shoots, and signs for engagement or family photos.

Can we bring our pet?

Yes, I love animals! Just please bring treats for dogs so I can get their attention, and a leash so we can tie them up for non-pet poses.

What if it rains?

Rain is common in British Columbia. If it’s looking like rain, I like to wait until the night before or morning of the session to make a decision, as sometimes the sun comes out just in time. The next best strategy is to choose a different start time on the same day, when the hourly forecast shows dry weather. If it’s truly a rainy day, we can have the session at a dry location. Reschedules are based on remaining calendar availability.

When will we see our photos?

All the good images from your session will be edited and delivered in a digital gallery 2-3 weeks after our session. In the meantime, I can post a teaser to Facebook or Instagram with, your permission.

How do we download the photos?

Extended Sessions include all the images for download. For the Quick and Medium sessions, you'll mark your favorite images in the gallery, email me when you’re done and I'll send a download link. If you can't narrow it down, you can purchase the full set of images.
