Lifestyle Portraits

The focus of the session is to capture the real relationships and personalities between each individual in every family.  It is my promise to make the session laid-back and ensure that everyone has a whole lot of FUN, even mommies and daddies.  Play & giggles are a very big must during our session.

Sessions can take place in your home or on location, anywhere from the beach to the farm or your favorite spot.

I am truly honoured and so grateful each and every time a family chooses me to capture their love, laughter and memories. The galleries I create are filled with images that will be shared and treasured for generations to come. They are more than photographs, they are reflections of what you love most in your life.

What's included with your photo session.

  • On location photo session in the Ottawa area.
  • Up to 60 minute session intended for immediate family up to 5 people ($25 each additional).
  • Personal guidance to help you plan and prepare for your photography session.
  • A collection of posed and candid portraits.
  • Online viewing gallery within 7-14 days for image & product selection.

My deepest desire is to become your friend and give you an experience, not just take pretty photographs of your family.  My clients are in love and humbled by the beauty of their children & want someone that they connect with and can trust to capture those moments so perfectly.  You cannot get these moments back, and I can help you to leave a photographic glimpse of what life was really like at this time in your lives.
