Frequently Asked Questions
Q & A's 

Location of the photoshoot

Let’s find a the best location together. Do you have any suggestions? I have some as well.  Let’s chat:) 

 

Rain? 

There’s always a possibility.  Some of the best dramatic photos are sometimes taken in the rain. I’m in!  But I completely understand if you were hoping for dry weather.  I’ll always suggest a rain date and if the weather isn't co-operating, we can easily postpone:) 

 

Your little ones

You’re maybe thinking, my children are probably going to have a different agenda for our photoshoot.  That’s ok.  The style of photo that will be taken will allow for them to feel at ease, and be comfortable, which will allow for real emotions to come out.  Its about creating memories of this specific moment.  Always feel free to bring a favorite toy, some water, and if its a must, snacks that don’t stain.

 

The Photoshoot

The photoshoot starts at the set time.   I’m always there a bit early to meet and greet you as you arrive for your photoshoot.   Depending on which photoshoot you chose, we will likely do Lifestyle Photos with some posed photos .   Lets chat some more about this!  If you think you might need extra time to get the photos that are looking to get, we should add more time to your session ahead of time. 
 

What do I mean by Lifestyle Photos?

To capture moments on camera, I often ask my clients to chose a favorite activity to do during the photoshoot or even many different activities, always keeping in mind that you are being photographed.   During this activity, I will guide you throughout to make sure we’re getting the photos that best describe what we’re trying to capture.  

 

What do we wear?

Depending on the photoshoot, I will send you ideas on what to wear.  We can chat about that too. 

 

What happens after?

After the photoshoot, a sneak peek will be revealed on my Facebook Business Page within 24 hours.  I might even send you a couple more by email.  I’ll be going through all of your photos to start, then gently editing them so that I can send you an online gallery where you’ll be able to select the photos that you would love to have.   You will receive your viewing gallery within 1 week after your photoshoot.   Once you have selected your photos, I’ll edit them to perfection. If possible, I will send them to you in both color and black and white. From there, I’ll  send you a dropbox link with all of your high resolution photos.  I usually send these photos to you as soon as possible.   

 

Going Forward
You will receive printing rights to all the photos that you will have selected.   I will retain all rights to the images for perpetuity.   A signed contract is required to reserve the dates.  You will receive both high resolution and screen quality versions of your photos.  Most packages are « à la carte » which allow for flexibility regarding all the packages that I offer.
