Family Photography Sessions

Family sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph. I love letting my clients just be themselves. To run, to laugh and have fun together. I never keep you in one spot for long and my goal is to capture the real you! The silly, funny, quiet, shy, whatever that may look like! I would be honoured to document this season of your lives.

The fun part! We will complete the session together and afterwards I will edit & send the images! You can expect the images within 4 weeks via an online gallery. Print releases are included with all sessions.

I'll send a digital agreement for you to sign and an online invoice. Once the retainer is paid (50% of your session fee) your date is secured. The remaining balance is due on your session date!

I will provide you with available dates to choose from during your requested time frame. We'll nail down a location and start time as well!

Make sure to specify when and where you would like to do the session and which package you are interested in. I can help you with location recommendations if you need them!

Kind Words

We recently had family photographs done by Melissa and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. We had three generations of family present and Melissa was fantastic with all of them. She was kind and patient with my father-in-law, who has some physical limitations, and she was able to get my fussy 18 month old to smile. Melissa did both composed photographs of the whole family as well as candids (with enough gentle direction so you don’t feel lost about what to do) in different parts of the beach near our house. We will have wonderful keepsakes from a very special time together. I would absolutely book Melissa again the the future and highly recommend her to everyone!!
