More than Portraits

Planning your Real Life Photo Session

Photos should reflect our connections with one another, and capture real emotions and moments.

Let go of expectations. Your Real Life Portrait Session should be relaxed and fun. There is no pressure to sit still and stare at the camera with a fake frozen smile.

Real Life Session Details



Your session can be scheduled at any time of the day, but I recommend that outdoor sessions be in the hours closest to sunset for the softest lighting.



Choose a location that has sentimental value for you like your home or favourite hang out spot. Or let me know your preferred scenery: urban or forest, field or ocean, etc. and I will help you select the perfect outdoor spot.


What to Wear?

Don't be afraid to dress up. Layer your outfit with textures and accessories. Try to steer clear of plain solids (i.e. just a white T). For groups, the colour scheme doesn't have to be an exact match, just corresponding. But ultimately: wear something that showcases your personality, whether bright colours or creams, casual or fancy.


Sessions with Kids

Kids rarely sit still, and we won't want them to! We will incorporate movement and play, and keep it lighthearted and fun. Bring them snacks, and warm clothing (in cooler weather) to put on between photos to keep them happy.

And please, don't tell them to say Cheese!

Cheese smiles are never look good ;)

Let's talk details

• Timeline •

A few days before your scheduled session, you will receive an email confirming your session details. In case of unexpected inclement weather and outdoor sessions, I will be in touch to discuss how we will proceed.

Plan to be ready at your photo location few minutes before the start time so that we can use every minute of our time together.

Your images will be delivered to you in a private online gallery within two weeks of your session time.
