Of course! I have lots of directional prompts up my sleeve for us to use, laugh through & have fun with. There’s never any expectation on clients to have any sort of model experience. It’s all about using a little direction to bring out and encourage those authentic moments. Not to worry, you’re in good hands.
I would describe my style as candid, laidback, & non-traditional with an artistic flare. Never super posey and stiff. I aways strive to have my images look different & real. Like something you’d see out of a magazine that tells a story. Something you’ll look back on for years to come and think wow that’s a timeless image. I remember that time in my / our life just as it was.
It really depends on what look you’re going for and what type of session you're doing! Most sessions can be done either indoors (eg. cozy in-home session, maternity/newborn sessions can be done in the nursery) or outdoors. Typically I recommend doing outdoors for larger families. I have lots of location recommendations to give some thought.
Yes! My private family cottage property located in the Ottawa valley has 180 acres of space for us to use! I love offering up this location for photos as it is incredibly beautiful, is waterfront, has lots of fields, greenery and best of all private and exclusive to my clients.
Sometimes I find it distracting going to a park for photos when there’s a million other people looking and watching us. That can get awkward real quick. So definitely let me know if this is a location you’re interested in using!
Typically expecting mamas schedule their session in around 30 weeks pregnant. Or whenever you feel most comfortable.
