Let's make some magic.

How does it work?

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

  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.
  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.
  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.
  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
  • client welcome guide to help you get the most out of your session
  • 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.

During your planning appointment, we can discuss how you hope to use your cherished images.


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.
