FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY Faq

I can shoot family photos at your home, in a studio, or at any location you choose. I'll travel within the city of Toronto and across the GTA including Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, Ajax, Brampton, Markham, Mississauga, Oakville, Pickering, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Newmarket and Thornhill. I'm available to book photography sessions outside of the GTA for an extra fee, which will depend on your specific location.

Where do you shoot family photos?

Regular family photo sessions include up to 7 family members. However, you can include an unlimited number of extended family members for only $75 extra.

Do you shoot any size family?

What is the price of your family portrait sessions?

Mini family photoshoots including 12 digital high-resolution photos start at $200+HST (only available in Toronto). However, my standard package for $350+HST includes a minimum of 50 photos (available anywhere in the GTA). Extra photos will be available for purchase. In addition, there's always the option to purchase add-ons with every family package.

What should my family wear to our photoshoot?

The colours and style of your outfits depends on your skin tone, the setting, and the overall aesthetic that you're trying to achieve. While some families choose to wear jeans and plain colour shirts, others might opt for flowing dresses and button-down shirts. I frequently recommend avoiding bright colors, logos, and flashy patterns. Instead it's best to select neutral colors and darker jewel tones to avoid dominating the photos. Usually, but not always, you shouldn't wear matching outfits, it's best for your wardrobe to complement other family members, rather than blending into each other.

Do you use props for your newborn photoshoots?

I rarely use props and tend to focus on capturing lifestyle newborn photos. Instead of staging an entire scene, I prefer to focus on “baby-led” poses such as stretching, yawning, snuggling with siblings or parents. However, if you have a family heirloom or specific items you would like to incorporate, I'm always willing to accommodate to ensure you get exactly what you want.

What time of day is best to shoot newborn photos?

It's ideal to shoot newborns in the morning after they're well-rested, fed, and changed. The same can be said for toddlers, but older kids tend to cope better anytime throughout the day, as long as, they're fed prior to shooting.

What if my children won't stay still?

No problem, I'm not a fan of stiff posing and kids tend to have a mind of their own! We'll snap a few classic family portraits at the beginning. And, then we'll spend the rest [and majority] of the session capturing fun and candid photos. I love it when you plan an activity such as an afternoon at a pumpkin patch, a light hike, or picnic at a local park. Or perhaps we can shoot photos of you having a barbecue, snuggling with your kids, dancing around the house, or climbing trees in your backyard.

Where should we shoot our family photos?

Think about how you want the photos to look. If you want a relaxed vibe we can shoot at your home, if you want more artistic photos we can shoot at a studio, or if you want natural light we can shoot outdoors. I'm happy to create a complimentary mood board for inspiration, prior to our session.

What's the cost of a cake smash shoot?

It's $75, plus the package you choose on the services page.
