Edmonton Family Photographer

“When there is family there is LOVE”

“The memories you make with your family are everything.”

Welcome to my Edmonton Family Photography…

WELCOME FAMILIES!

As an Edmonton family photographer for over 24 years, I will capture those precious moments that we may forget. I believe it is truly special to watch families grow and change, and I strongly encourage you to take family photos EVERY YEAR. Shooting outside is the best for families, as I am able to utilize natural light, and I have a huge canvas to be creative and offer a wide variety of images.

PERSONALIZED

Each Edmonton family photography session is tailored to your unique style, personality, and preferences. I will take the time to understand your vision and bring it to life. I strive to make our sessions as fun as possible so the little ones are engaged. We will play games and play around to keep your children happy.

OUTFITS

Most moms have anxiety about selecting the right clothes to wear. Don’t worry—I will help you through this process so you can match your style and look fantastic! I PROMISE that the photo investment you make today will be cherished for a lifetime.

The Process

When to book?

Booking your Edmonton family photography session a minimum of 2-3 months in advance will give us enough time for planning and styling. Sometimes, it takes time to coordinate outfits you love, and you may have to order them online, so allow enough time for shipping. A $100 non-refundable deposit is due at booking to secure and hold your spot.

consultation

After you receive your confirmation, we can start planning your photo session. I will discuss your ideas and preferences for your maternity photography session in Edmonton. You will decide on an outdoor or studio session.


For all family sessions, we will discuss some of my preferred family photo locations in St. Albert, Edmonton, Spruce Grove, Morinville, Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Devon and Leduc. However, the final decision on the location is yours. We have some of the most beautiful surroundings in Alberta to take family photography.

maternity Photography Location Options

All Edmonton family photography sessions are held outside, using natural light and stunning locations in the Edmonton area. The best time for a family photo session is just after sunrise or before sunset, when the light is soft and flattering. 

on the day of THE session?

We will meet at the chosen location in the Edmonton area. My goal is to create a relaxed environment where you feel comfortable. I will prompt you with things to do with your children to create a fun playing atmosphere. I will provide a variety of posed and candid images that capture the true essence of your family connection.

after the session?

Within two weeks after your session appointment, you’ll receive a link to a preview of your maternity online gallery. From here, you choose your favourite images based on the package you selected. You have an option to purchase additional photos if you wish.

05. GOT SOME QUESTIONS?


Coordinating your outfits can make your images go from nice to amazing photos. The more time and effort we put into your clothing choices, the better your family photos will be. I recommend avoiding logos, busy patterns, and bright neon colors. Stick to either pastels or deep rich colours.

For more details on outfits…

On the day of the session, ensure your family is well-fed, well-rested, and excited to play together at the park. Prepping your family for the day and getting them excited about your new adventure is essential.

BRIBERY (YES… it’s okay today!)

Bring snacks and toys for younger children and bribes if necessary; it is not the time to discipline today. The kids will rule the roost (just today!). I know this day will be very stressful for Mom, and I want you to try to come with no expectations and be relaxed, as your children will feel you and behave accordingly. Let’s keep it FUN!

The best lighting is found either just after sunrise or before sunset. Sometimes, this can be too early or too late for little ones, so we have to work around their schedule to ensure a happy child.

I will carefully monitor the situation throughout the day of your session. I will decide within 2 hours of the session, as working in Edmonton, Alberta, the weather can change in 5 minutes. If necessary, we have to reschedule your session.

Please get in touch with me directly through the contact form. A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure a spot.

Once I receive your selections, the final professionally retouched images will take up to 2 weeks.

I understand that life happens. If you need to reschedule, please let me know at least 48 hours in advance to avoid a $100.00 rebooking fee.

No, I don’t offer Hair and Makeup. However, I can recommend the following makeup artists and hair stylists:

Of course, you can choose. I keep an eye on the best locations in the area based on leaves, flowers blooming, tall grasses growing, etc., and your vision. I will need to know if you have a specific location in mind at the time of booking, as I book several families an evening, and I will need to make sure all of them want to be at the same location.

I will travel anywhere in Alberta, but there is a travel fee outside St. Albert.

YES! There is an additional cost of $25.00/ per fur baby

YES! Please contact me for a quote.
