Forever and Always (Newborn Session #1)
$500.00 +gst (3-4 hours)
As we all know, newborns stay small for a very short time, and within days of birth they quickly become alert, curious, and sweet little people with personalities of their own. For this reason I prefer to photograph newborns between 4-10 days old. There are many reasons for this, however safety is first and foremost. At this age the sweet babies tend to startle less, and sleep more, making posing and propping not only easier, but also safer. As well, the little babes still have the newborn goodness that tends to disappear quickly. Before you blink, the babies become little people.
Included in this package:
- 15 edited and touched up high-resolution images on a custom thumb drive.
- An over the phone consult to discuss details, questions, and planning your session. I like to get a feel for my clients taste, as well as an idea as to what you have in mind. Some love the use of props, and bright colors, where others may prefer a more natural approach.
- The photographer’s time, talent, and experience.
Choosing a newborn photographer is a hard thing to do, as you are trusting someone with your bundle of love. I have over 5 years experience with newborn photography, and hundreds of babies have come through my door. If there is one thing that I can promise you, it’s that during the time you are here, I will love and care for your sweet babe as much as I would my own. Your babies comfort and well being will always come first, followed by some sweets captures of your new family member.
- Use of props
Most women like to buy shoes, and purses, but myself…Props. I am constantly investing in new backdrops, furs, and little things here and there, from who I believe are some of the best vendors in the industry. I will do everything in my power to ensure you walk away with images that match your style, and your family dynamic.
- A safe and comfortable environment.
Posing babies requires a lot of patience, but keeping them comfortable is what makes it all come together. We photograph in my home studio, which during your session is kept warm, and relaxing. There is no rushing, no forcing the baby to comply, and no expectations. If there is one thing that I have learned over the years, it is that the newbies make all the rules, and I more or less just listen. Because of this, I am able to provide you with some sweet memories you can hold on to forever.
Once all is said and done, depending on the time of year, your images usually take anywhere from 2-5 weeks to reach you. If you would like to be in a few pictures with your new bundle, or perhaps there is a sibling you would like to include, add an additional $50.00+gst to the price to receive an additional 5 images.
The Travelling Stork (Newborn Session #2)
$450.00 +gst (1-2 hours)
If you would rather go for a lifestyle approach with your session, I would be more than happy to come to you (within Hinton only). This session would include me coming to your house and following you around for over an hour, as I capture your sweet bundle in their new home and the surroundings that are unique to you. Included are 20 digital images on a custom USB drive of you with your baby, and any siblings, the nusery, as well as the small touches that highlight this moment in time. Unless requested, no props or backdrops will be involved. Again, this approach is influenced solely by you and who you are as a family with a new baby.
Giggles and Goodness (Children’s Portrait Session)
$300.00 +gst (1-2 hours)
In studio (If under the age of 6), or outdoors, capturing the essence of childhood. Personal props such as bears or blankets are welcome. This package includes 20 edited and touched up digital images on a custom USB drive.
For a 1 year old cake smash session, add $50.00+gst (cake NOT included), and of course I will clean the mess 😉
Simple and Beautiful (Outdoor Maternity Session)
$300.00 +gst (1 hour)
This package includes the time and talent of the photographer, as well as 20 edited and touched up high resolution digital images on a custom USB drive. Capturing the pure beauty in pregnancy in a natural, casual way, outdoors. You’re going to love it!
Sweet and Spicy (Nude/Semi Nude Indoor Maternity Portrait Session)
$350.00 +gst (1-2 hours)
This session takes place in my home studio, using a black backdrop and studio lighting. It is meant to be a classy yet personal way to capture this brief moment in time. Using creative lighting, I will create pieces of shadowed art, using your beautiful body in its incredible transition. Most images come in black and while, but should you prefer color, I can do that as well.
Two Peas (Couple / Engagement Session)
$350.00 +gst (1-2 hours)
Showcasing your love is always a beautiful thing, but having some great pictures for your wall or nightstand can’t be beat. This package includes 20 edited and touched up high-resolution digital images on a custom USB drive.
Wine and Strawberries (Romantic Semi Nude Couples Art, or Boudoir Session)
$450.00 +gst (1-2 hours)

We're One of a Kind (Family Portrait Session)
$300.00 +gst for 5 people or less (1-2 hours)
Additional $25 for every one person above 5 (big groups can call for special rates).
Express the unique qualities of what makes your family so special. A family session can last anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on the amount of people, and is meant to capture the smiles, the heart, and the beauty of your family. I do suggest that everyone dresses to coordinate, and that you do not wear conflicting patterns (plaid, polka dots, stripes, yadda, yadda, as this takes away from your images) I am open for ideas and any special requests. Once all is said and done you will receive 20 high resolution edited and touched up images all on a custom USB drive.
