Absolutely! I will meet you anywhere. In order to cover gas and time, I do charge an additional travel fee for distances greater than 25km one-way or travel durations expected to exceed 30 minutes one-way.
The lighting is best when the sun is the lowest in the sky, whether that be just after sunrise or just before sunset. They call this the "golden hour" for a reason! However there is something to be said for "blue hour" which are the moments immediately after the sun has sunken beyond the horizon.
To find out what time sunrise and sunset are on the day of your session, simply search that online! Always account for what the horizon may look like. For example, at the beach, sunrise will happen closer to the time you have searched (barring a cloudy day). If you are wanting portraits in an area with mountains and hills, the sun will fall beyond the horizon faster because of those gorgeous peaks!
This being said, I am available to shoot at any time during the day! Just let me know when works best for you xo
My only interest is your comfort, so I encourage you to wear whatever is going to make you feel the most comfortable and beautiful. I am not interested in keeping a consistent Instagram feed of client wardrobe choices, but rather I am more interested in seeing consistent and authentic comfort and smiles.
However, I do recognize that folks sometimes have a difficult time deciding on their wardrobe and in that case I am more than happy to provide some feedback on complimentary colours with the environment, and colours to avoid because they may not turn out the best in camera. Just ask me! I am here to support you!
This is so so normal! Even I feel awkward getting my portrait taken, so I absolutely understand the feeling.
My aim for the session is to have you feel the most relaxed and yourself. I am an easy going person and I have been told I have a knack for making folks feel comfortable, so I have no doubts we will become instant friends and rock this session together!
I will provide prompts in case you aren't sure how to position your body but I am also documenting the "in between moments" of you acting natural with your partner, kids, etc. you will have a great mix of everything to choose from!
I also like to shoot a little spontaneously, so even if I have a plan in my head about what may look great and what prompts I may want to use, I draw a lot of inspiration from you! If I see you or your kids doing something and it inspires me, I will roll with it! I think it creates a lot of authenticity and realness to your session and also makes certain that not every session I shoot looks the exact same (because that's a little boring, right? haha)
For portrait sessions, after you choose your favourite images from your proofing gallery, you will have your edited images within 3 weeks :)
Absolutely! I don't ever want finances to be a reason you can't get your memories captured. If this is something you may need, please reach out and we will make a plan :)
I do, just send me a message and we will create a customized portrait package for you!
