But here are a few examples to get your creative juices flowing :)
- Baby's First Year - watching your child grow in a series of photos from birth to 12 months
- Welcoming a new sibling - going from one child to two is a mind-blowing. You change along side your children, this will allow you to see two children grow over a year.
- For all the school aged children - learning to ride a bike, showing off their piano skills, hiking or setting up their first camp tent, sprinkler fights, family picnics ... there is so much being discovered with a child between ages 5-7.

Frequently Asked Questions
Year of Family Photography Package 

I really want to do maternity photos as one of the sessions. Can the package be modified?
Yes! In this case we would modify the timeline to include a maternity session. We’d do maternity photos, newborn, six months old and first birthday.

This isn’t my first baby. Can we include our other child(ren) in the photos?
Of course! Doing this package with siblings is great because you not only get the baby’s growth documented but also your other kid(s) as well. It’s kind of like a 2 for 1! All family members, pets included, are encouraged to join. 

I want to include the extended family in each shoot? Is this allowed?
The short answer is, no. The aim of this package with each session is to tell the story of your family and record and represent every day family life with your immediate family. If you wish to have extended family present, you may do so for one of the four sessions but not for each one.

Why is the album included?
We are all guilty of saying we’ll be better at printing our photos and then letting them sit on our computers and phones for years and years. By including the album in this package, you are guaranteed to have these memories in a physical format to look at and hand down for generations to come. Your child/ren will have an album from an entire year of life! How great is that? 

You don’t mention a USB. How do I get my images? How many images will I receive?
USBs are becoming obsolete as computers are being manufactured without ports. Your digital files are available to download from the online gallery you’ll receive after each session. The minimum final image count is 50. Giving you access to the files, allows you to create your own creative projects. 

I don’t understand the payments? Why are there 6 payments?
Upon confirming that you’d like to book this package, I will send you a contract to electronically sign and an invoice as a retainer. That is the first payment. Each payment afterwards is due upon each session and the last and final payment is due when your album is ready for delivery. I will send you an invoice for each session and you can pay via e-transfer or credit card.

I’m really interested in this package but I don’t know you.
Can we meet before I commit to this?

Yes! I totally understand that you might want to meet me before having me document your family for a year. We can arrange a time and I will come to your home and we can chat and get to know each other before you fully commit to the package.
