Family Photography Sessions
Experience, Investment & Booking
Family portrait sessions are a wonderful way to document important milestones, such as engagements, birthdays and reunions. What my clients love the most about my family sessions is how comfortable and relaxed they feel. I like my family sessions to take a natural approach, and I photograph your family being just that - a family.
Don't wait to update your family photos; life is always on the move so it's important to stop and make time each year to preserve your memories. I urge everyone I meet to update their family photos yearly; not because I am a photographer, but because I am a mother that understands how important these memories really are.
Scheduling Your Session
The most popular time for family photos is between summer and fall; however, that does not mean it is the only time to update your family portraits! I suggest planning and scheduling your family photos around a date that is special to your family, or when important family members are visiting, regardless of the season.
Family portrait sessions are scheduled Monday through Saturday approximately 3 hours before sunset for the most flattering natural light. Please note that I do not offer morning or afternoon sessions in order to produce images that are consistent with my portfolio.
If you require a weekend date, I recommend booking your session several months in advance, especially during the summer and fall months, as Saturdays can book up very early.
Planning Your Session
Once you have booked your family photos, we will discuss location and you will be able to choose from a variety of parks in North Vancouver, Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster. Each location has its benefits and I'm happy to help you choose based on what you would like from your experience.
Prior to your family photo session we will discuss outfits, and I will assist you in creating a cohesive look between each of your family members to create timeless portraits that can be enjoyed by everyone for generations.
