Family Sessions

Family Portrait Sessions

Having two small children of my own I understand how life can get busy and we sometimes forget what will soon become our past, because we are so focused on our futures. Children grow up fast. All too quickly the pitter-patter of little feet on the floor will be gone. The little hands holding ours will grow and in the blink of an eye they will be moving off to college. Having family photos done each year is an amazing way to preserve these precious moments. It’s a way to document and create stunning impressions of the relationships that are most intimate and important to you. Family photos are a keepsake that will last a lifetime and for generations to come. We often don’t realize the importance of family photos until it’s too late. I will help you create a reflection of your family life and to capture the love and energy that is uniquely your family.

ADDITIONAL SESSION AND BOOKING INFO

 ABOUT MY SESSIONS

  • All of my portraits are done outdoors in natural light. I prefer to do my sessions in the early morning and early evening (golden hour). This way I can take advantage of the best light of the day. Scheduling times vary depending on the season.
  • Prior to your photo shoot with me, I will send you some reading material on what to expect and what to wear. This way you can arrive at the shoot feeling comfortable and confident.
  • It’s very important to arrive on-time and ready for your session. Careful planning and consideration goes into a photo shoot. Not only will I be chasing the light to ensure that I’m capturing the very best images possible, but I often have back-to-back shoots or need to travel to another shoot location immediately after. If you arrive late to your shoot, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to make up for that lost time.
  • Your final edited photos will be provided to you roughly 3 weeks after the shoot. This timeline is based on a first-come-first-served basis, so the timeline may be longer or shorter than this.
  • By hiring me to take your photos, you consent to allow me the reasonable use of your photos in my portfolio and marketing materials.
  • If I wish to use your images for commercial use, I will seek your permission on a case-by-case basis.
  • If you wish to share my photos, I ask that you give photo credit (either through the use of watermarked images or mentions). This will help others like you find me.

PAYMENT AND ADDITIONAL FEES

  • A session fee of $100 is required to confirm your session at the time of booking.
  • The session fee serves as a non-refundable retainer fee. If you cancel more than 7 days before your session, the retainer may be transferred to a session at a future date within the calendar year. However, if you cancel less than 7 days before your session, I reserve the right to retain the amount in full. If the session is cancelled due to weather, I will make every effort to re-schedule your session as soon as scheduling and weather allows.
  • Payment is due in full at the end of the photography session.
  • Additional costs may apply if the photo session extends beyond the allotted session time or if extra time is needed beyond that which is included in my standard pricing packages.
  • If travel to the session location extends 18km beyond my location, an additional $5/km to a max amount of $60 between Vancouver and Langley will apply.
  • Family Portrait session pricing includes up to 4 people. The addition of more people means I need to spend more time editing each photo. Therefore an additional charge of $30.00 per each addition person will be charged per session.
  • Additional editing fees may apply if something unexpected happens. IE: if your child eats a snack on the way to the shoot and gets chocolate granola stains on their shirt or if your child has a cold and a very runny nose. These unforeseen ‘oopsies’ can usually be edited out of a photo for an additional charge. Additionally, if a request is made to edit something that goes beyond my normal service, an additional fee may be charged. IE: the removal of a band-aid in every photo
  • Any additional fees associated with a location that the client has chosen, such as admission fees, rental fees, etc, will be covered by the client.
