Let's make some magic.

Storyteller Sessions

*COVID-19 pandemic precautions are taken including masks, frequent hand washing and sanitizing*

How does it work?

From booking to your finished story, I aim to make the process as smooth as possible.

  1. BOOKING: We chat and I get to know how I can best tell your family's story. From here, you reserve your date with a retainer of $200. The remainder of your fee is due on session day.
  2. PLANNING: Once booked in, we'll set a time for your planning appointment either in-person or via phone. This allows us to meet so once session day rolls around, we're already all comfortable with each other and ready to shoot!
  3. SESSION TIME: This is where the magic happens. I am there to document your real life in all it's glory. I truly pride myself on making sure clients feel comfortable and engaged during our sessions. With guided prompts, I lead you through different poses acting as a fly on the wall through all the antics. I don't set time restraints on in-home sessions but clients can expect about 30-60 minutes for couples or family and about 60-90 minutes for newborn sessions.
  4. THE REVEAL: Within two weeks of your session, you'll receive an online gallery that allows you to choose the images included in your collection. If you choose to purchase more at this time, you are more than welcome.
  5. YOUR FINISHED STORY: After you've chosen your products and digital images, you'll receive an online gallery with your high-quality digital images. Any products ordered will be delivered right to your door.


Each session includes:

  • a pre-session planning appointment
  • a Storyteller photography session at your home or location of choice
  • a high-quality digital gallery with shareable link

Perserving Memories

I'm a firm believer in displaying your family photos which is why I'm proud to offer heirloom-quality products such as Italian handbound albums, framed fine art prints and canvases.

Samples are available for viewing prior to purchase.


Why should I have my session at home?

There are SO MANY reasons. I wrote a blog you can check out outlining my top five but my favourite reason: I get to capture your family as their most authentic selves. Home is our safe space, it's our solitude. It's the four walls your story is being written in.

What do I wear? How do I prep My Kids?

Don't fret! All of the details will be discussed at your planning appointment.
