Investment (Updated 2020)

As a premier photographer serving metro Vancouver, I specialize in working with young children and their families - in capturing the smiles, the giggles, the joy that is childhood.  My sessions are geared around capturing this moment in time…what we want to remember of our children, and what we want our children to remember of our families.  I also offer a range of newborn, maternity and headshot packages to my clients.

 

The packages below are ones that I feel best serve my clients' needs.  If you have any questions or require a custom quote, please don't hesitate to let me know.  My goal is to capture, create and share the images that let you cherish your most precious memories...forever.

 Session fees include a set number of digitals; additional digitals and print products available for purchase.

Needing something different?


Please don't hesitate to reach out.  I recognize that all parties have unique needs and am happy to work with yours.  As best I can, I will work with your requests to create the photo session of your dreams!

A few random notes:

 

Interested in a location south of the border?  I have legal work status in Canada and in the United States, and can accommodate session requests on either side of the 49th parallel.

 

I book early and am often booked a few months in advance of session dates.  Your session fee and date are guaranteed only upon confirmation of your appointment with a paid retainer and forms submitted.  I cannot hold dates open for sessions with unpaid retainers.

All sessions come with a full preview gallery of carefully selected photos. As a client, this is always something that has been important to me - the ability to select the photos that make my heart sing, the ones that I feel best capture the love, joy and bonds of my own family in ways that only I can truly understand on a personal level.  All final images are carefully and tastefully edited to ensure that each image shines, while ensuring it stays close to its original nature.

Galleries are turned around within 31 days of the session - 14 for holiday mini sessions - and rush service is available for galleries needed in a shorter time frame.

Events

 

I love capturing local events, including parties, showers, corporate events and community activities.  I provide individual pricing for all events due to their specific needs.  Please contact me directly to discuss your event needs and pricing.

Your photo session's outdoor location

All pricing includes travel to sessions in Delta, Richmond, Vancouver, Surrey, New Westminster, Burnaby and Coquitlam.  With my deluxe sessions offering multiple locations, including in-studio and outdoors, a travel radius between the two locations will also apply.  I am happy to recommend some of my favourite locations based on your ideas and requests!  Other location pricing / beyond roughly 30 km from Ladner / available upon request.  ​

Have a location south of the border in mind?  Because I think it's pretty darn cool, here's a friendly reminder that I have legal work status in both the United States and Canada, and am happy to make your session international.
