Custom photography is an investment, one that will live through many lifetimes.
It is an investment of time and money for both the client and photographer,
and I hope that each and every client leaves with an amazing and memorable experience.
My clients invest in professional photography because they appreciate and value
the irreplaceable gift of memories that the experience and the beautiful artwork provides.
I offer the highest of quality heirloom pieces that will eventually be passed down to your children
and then to their children because those are the priceless pieces that will matter most
when some day suddenly becomes today.

Your Experience Begins Here
Every session stars with a conversation!
First, I receive your inquiry and then we begin your consultation where all the questions are asked,
you can share your vision and what you are looking for in your session.
We will plan every detail together to ensure your session meets your vision and expectations.
The consultation can be via email, phone, video call or if you like, in person, whichever is most convenient for you!
Next, once all the planning is complete we have your session, yay!
You will find all the details and what is included with each session right below.
* Digital files, prints and products are sold separately in addition to your session fee *
After your session comes delivery of your images and for this I do things a bit differently from most.
Many photographers simply send you a gallery or hand over a USB and leave you with it, but I believe receiving your images should be another exciting experience on it's own.
About two weeks from your session and after your images have been perfected behind the scenes,
we will schedule your image reveal and ordering appointment. This will be via zoom or skype,
whichever works best for you so you can view your images together as a family right from the comfort of your own home.
I will have prepared a beautiful slideshow set to music which is what we will begin with.
The way I have structured the selection and purchase of your images is different
than I have in the past or what is most commonly seen but I do it this way so that you have the ability
to see your final images before making a purchase leaving you with full control over your choices giving you
exactly what you want and love and nothing you don't.
All print products and collections with the exception of individual gift prints and enlargements include the corresponding
digital files or full gallery of digital images, or you have the option of digital collections only.
Payment plans are available making it easier to give you all that you want from your session.

Frequently asked questions
How do I book?
I would love to secure your date in my calendar! If you know what session you want to book, simply send me a message and we'll get the ball rolling. If you're not sure, I will walk you through it to help you make the best choice for your family.
How long are your sessions?
Sessions vary in length but typically range from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the type of session.
What if my child(ren) don't cooperate?
This is an understandable concern for many parents, especially if they have attempted photo sessions before or are unsure of how their children will behave. As I specialize in child and family photography, I have worked with many many children of all ages and personalities and I can honestly say I can not really pinpoint a specific time I was not able to achieve some great photos of busy chldren.
What if the weather doesn't cooperate on the day of our session?
As we all know, living in Alberta our weather can be quite challenging and can change at the drop of a hat. Being in the windy city of Lethbridge, we definitely have our share of messy weather. I generally wait until the day of the session, and even more specifically within the hour to decide if the session should be re-scheduled due to weather. I would be an awful person if I didn't allow re-scheduling for this reason and hey I am human and my equipment is expensive, I too may prefer choosing another date if the weather is poor. You're coming to me for an experience and in the end your experince is not just our communication and meeting with me, but your final images as well and the weather can definitely put a damper on how they look.
What do we wear?
I always advise my clients to dress comfortably and in a way that is "them", just a little more put together. If you are not comfortable in what you're wearing, it can come out in your images and we want you to be completely happy with them and proud to display them in your home.
How long after our session will we receive our photos?
I ask for 2 weeks but generally in about a week depending on how many sessions I have going at the moment.
Do you offer prints?
Absolutely I do! When you receive your online gallery, it comes complete with an online store where you can order professional prints, canvases, and amazing and unique print products.
