Regular Sessions

Sessions

I specialize in maternity, newborns and childhood and the bond of family. I look forward to creating professional, archival quality photographs for you that will be cherished for generations to come. Many sessions can be done on location either in your home or outside, or in my Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island Photography Studio.

Children

The time it takes to capture images of a child in their most natural and comfortable state usually replicates their personality. Children who are easy going and relaxed usually take only minutes to find their rhythm in a session. Children who are more reserved may take a little more time; however documenting their sweet, innocent hesitation can make for stunning images that are true to your child’s personality. No matter how your child eases into a session we are sure to have lots of fun and create a memorable experience and images to match.

I find to ensure beautiful, natural candid moments occur in both Family and Children sessions a minimum of 30 minutes is required. Additional time may be purchased and increases in 30 minute intervals.

Family

Woman and child playing in waves on Qualicum BeachThe best part of Family Photography is being a fly on the wall and witnessing each family’s unique bond. Some families are sweet, some silly, some use gentle touch or humour to convey their love. I am always honoured to be a witness to families allowing me to document their relationships and strive to capture the honest connection between them while we laugh, explore and play through each session.

The natural beauty of Qualicum Beach and Parksville make the perfect backdrop for Family Portraits. Family Portrait sessions generally take 1 hour.

Maternity

The end of a pregnancy can be full of nerves and excitement and it’s an amazing time to create beautiful Maternity Photographs that show an incredible time in a family’s life before the baby comes.

Maternity sessions are 40 minutes to 1 hour. 40 minute sessions will be enough time for pictures of the mother-to-be and her partner and one outfit change. 1 hour sessions will accommodate enough time for other family members and two outfit changes. Sessions can be in my Qualicum Beach studio or on location.

Newborn

As a mother of three amazing children myself, I know how fleeting the first few days of the tiny newborn stage goes. The curliest, squishiest, sweetest “camera ready” moments happen in the first 5-13 days of a baby’s birth. When you know your due date you can inform me straight away and I can keep you on my radar for your Newborn Photography session.

My focus in newborn photography is to highlight the baby with minimal props and natural or soft colours. Sessions vary in time from 1 hour – 3 hours as newborns can be unpredictable; nursing can be time consuming and baby may need coaxing into sleep and sleepy poses. The more time you have for your session the more relaxed baby can get (and you!). Posed sessions are available in my Qualicum Beach studio. Lifestyle sessions are available on location. Maternity + Newborn packages are also available.
