FAQ

What does ‘lifestyle’ mean?

Lifestyle photography covers a broad range of portrait sessions. It means I document your lives around a planned activity with your family, or photograph your wedding as the day unfolds with a more photojournalist approach and less posing than traditionally expected. Occasionally I will re-arrange a scene or ask you to do something for a more visual effect.

What should I/we wear?

Here’s a basic breakdown of what I recommend for each type of session offered:

Newborn session– Light coloured, flowing dresses or tops, be comfortable and PLEASE avoid red as it often reflects onto the babies already pink skin. For your new bundle light coloured onsie’s and plain white, cream, light grey and baby pink swaddles are best.

Family/ Couples sessions–  Dress comfortably enough to go on an adventure, be prepared to sit in the grass or cross a stream… if you’re super worried about a special article of clothing getting dirty or possible stained then don’t wear it. I’m here to capture moments and connections, while yes, what you wear is important, it’s ultimately emotions that I’m after! Many people are interested in wardrobe changes, I am not against the idea though the way I prefer to photograph you it tells a story and when you change it tends to break the story up.

Wedding–  Getting ready shot play a big role in telling your story. Instead of wearing sweats and t-shirt why not get a cute robe, and maybe some matching one’s for the girls too! Oh, and obviously a wedding dress and suite for the groom…

Where should we go?

This is probably the most frequently asked question I receive. I do have many locations that I’ve worked with and can definitely recommend some if you’re stuck, I prefer to shoot at a place may hold some meaning to you. i.e: your favourite place to hike or walk the dog, an old swimming hole, your Grandpa’s farm or at home. This will give your photos more meaning and you’ll cherish them for years to come!

What should we do at our portrait session?

Do something you like! Bake cookies and do crafts with your little ones. Go for a walk, bike ride or swim, go sledding in the winter followed by a cup of warm hot chocolate. If you allow your kids to play, I promise beautiful things will happen!
