I do not put a limit on how many family members attend our session. In my eyes the more, the merrier! If you have more than 6 family members, I do recommend booking a premium session instead of a mini for best results & so you don't feel rushed.
Starting at $175

I believe in being an open book about pricing in order to save you time! Below you will find my package options. As you look through these session options, please keep in mind that I try my absolute best to offer packages at different price points so all families can have the opportunity to have professional photos. These packages aren't just about arriving at the session and taking photos - it also includes communication, session planning, location scouting, endless hours of artistic editing, my time and my talent. If there's a session you're interested in, but are financially tight, don't be afraid to be open with me and we can discuss payment plans. If you watch my social media pages on Instagram and Facebook closely, you can also participate in my special promotions and giveaways!
How do I book a session?
You can contact me through this website, e-mail email@example.com, or message me on the Moments for Mamas Facebook or Instagram page. Please include the date you’re inquiring about, how many people in the shoot, what city you live in, and what kind of session you'd like to book. I'll send you my packages and you can let me know if you have any questions. Once you've decided on your package, a $50 non-refundable retainer and a signed electronic contract is required to secure your booking ($25 non-refundable retainer for minis). After I receive both of those things, we can start going into more depth about your session details!
What do I wear?
The most popular question and one of the most important decisions for your session with me!! I do have a colour palette that I like to suggest to clients. Once you pay your retainer and sign the contract, I will take the time to go into more depth about your session details and send you a full PDF Style Guide I strongly suggest you sticking to as those colours and advice pair the best with my editing style. I also have a client closet for mamas which is available to you when you book either a Premium Golden Hour family session, maternity, or newborn lifestyle session.
Do you have props?
I get asked this a lot when it comes to newborn lifestyle sessions. I am not an in-studio photographer with backdrop choices. Your life is my studio, the backdrop is your home. I travel to your house, encourage you to get comfortable, and let your love spill through my lens. I have a few selection of props I bring including client closet dresses for mama (if you choose), swaddles, baskets, blankets, newborn pillow, and head crowns. My props are very minimalistic, Earthy toned with a hint of vintage boho, and all in my colour pallet so I do not supply props like fabric/paper backdrops, bean bags, bright colours, teddy bears, etc. I believe simple is better and want the focus of your images to be on your family and new bundle of joy and to look natural - not perfectly posed. If a studio is what you're looking for - there are some great local photographers in my area I would love to recommend to you! If lifestyle is what you're looking for - I'm your gal!
As for regular family sessions, the only prop I bring is a blanket. A blanket can go a long ways from something to sit on for sit down poses, a swing for littles, playing the parachute game with the sun setting behind you, and I like to utilize what's in my environment outdoors such as picking flowers. For my premium family & maternity packages I also offer full access to my client closet and peacock chair.
How do I get my photos?
Once your images are edited, I will notify you and they will be available on an online gallery at full resolution. If you're downloading off your computer/laptop you'll also have the option to download web resolution for social media. If you would like them on a flash drive, the USB must be provided by you. I also offer prints which can be ordered directly through me (if you order through my website there are some hefty shipping charges, so it's best to order directly through me to save on shipping). I order prints through a professional printing lab based out of Ontario. Please note that in order to receive your photos, your payment must be received in full.
Do you have an indoor studio?
Not at this time. I do offer casual lifestyle sessions in the comfort of your own home for those cold winter months, or to capture those sweet moments when you bring your newborn home which is also easy on mama postpartum. No need to travel anywhere!
How many photos will I get?
Each package is different, but all of my package details are posted on this page out in the open so you know exactly what I offer.
What is a retainer?
A retainer is a fee paid in advance to a service provider, which secures the right for you to have that individual’s services when they are required. When you book your session, I reserve that date and time just for you. This fee is $50 which goes towards your session total. It is non-refundable.
Can I choose my photos?
For my PREMIUM packages, I will automatically choose the best photos from your session based on my experience and professional opinion on lighting, positioning, expression, and resolution and you get to download them all. For the mini and full, I will edit a few more images than what is in your package and send them to you with download abilities turned off. You will be able to "favourite" the images you want and I will release them to you in a separate gallery with download abilities. Please remember that if you choose more images than what come in your package, you will need to pay $10/additional image, and full payment is required before your images will be released to you. I also do not release RAW images.
