this time with your kids is so important
Fill out the form
Include your preferences in terms of session type and style, location, etc. I’ll be in touch within 48 hours.
Contract and payment
I will reach out and once all details are confirmed, we’ll sign a contract and you’ll have to pay a non-refundable session fee of $125 (to reserve your date).
Two weeks after your session, you’ll receive an online gallery with all your fully edited proofs. Once you've had the chance to view your images, you will be asked to purchase one of the three digital packages.
*See Investment Guide below
Download Your Gallery
After you've chosen your digital package, you will gain access to your full gallery and will be able to download your high resolution photographs.
You can also view the online store where you can self-order your prints, wall art, photo magazines etc. at the comfort of your own home.
How many photos will we receive?
This depends on how much you love your photos after you receive them! :)
Within 3 weeks of your session, you’ll receive an online gallery with your fully retouched images (somewhere between 40-70 photos), from which you’ll need to choose the amount set in your package.
How should we dress for our family session?
Dress like yourselves and be comfy, please.
Here are some bonus tips:
Incorporate movement by picking fabrics that move and flow with you.
Natural fibers and earthy tones look amazing in most settings, as well as deep & rich colors such as emerald green, rust red, mustard yellow, burnt orange etc.
Compliment each other, don't match each other.
Avoid neons, logos and bold patterns (unless it helps tell your story).
We don’t feel very confident in front of the camera, is that ok?
Absolutely! Most people (me included) feel a bit awkward around a camera... This is especially true in the first 10 minutes and it's completely normal.
We'll let the kids lead the session, match their mood and I'm sure in no time, we'll all be having fun and capturing some lovely family time!
What’s the best time to have a session with a newborn?
If you're looking for the sleepy newborn type of photos, the session should happen before 4 weeks.
Otherwise, we can shoot a newborn session until around 5 months.

Every year I gift myself with family photos. This year we used Melis and I was so happy we did! She was truly amazing with my 3 and 5 year old, making it fun. My older daughter was intrigued with taking pictures and Melis handed over her camera and let her take a few pics herself. I was so happy with the results, I had a bunch framed and created a wall of us just from that session. Looking forward to the next session!!
