“Love, love, loved our family session with Jess. I’m not a person who’s super comfortable in front of the camera but she encouraged us to just do our thing while she blended into the background and did hers. Her documentary style really appeals to us...we’re not particularly into posed perfection and love how she captures the real moments, the real expressions, the real emotion of life.”

What will the session be like? Are there any posed portraits?

My documentary-style approach of capturing your family means no posing is necessary and no props will be used. We basically go with the flow, and are casual and fun. All you have to do is be yourself and carry on as you typically would with your family. My job is to make the experience feel like we are hanging out together and that the camera is almost an afterthought. That said, Grandparents love traditional portraits - I know mine do! I will allot 15 minutes for formal portraits - where direction is extremely relaxed and only used if needed.

What if my child acts out?

If your child is being who they are with me, as they would with you, then I cannot ask for more. Children’s actions and expressions are pure and unfiltered, and that to me is gold. 

When will I receive my pictures?

You’ll receive a private link to your edited, high res photos within 2 and half weeks.

Is a deposit required? What if I have to cancel?

Yes, there is a session retainer  of $150 and it serves as a non-refundable fee. It is due at the time of booking, and the remaining is due the day of the session. I will send you an invoice to secure your spot. If you need to cancel, the retainer may be transferred to a session at a future date. However, if you cancel less than 24 hours before your session, I reserve the right to retain the amount in full.

Does your non-directed approach mean you don’t give any direction?

I do not call out directions through the session, but I will give some gentle guidance. For example, if I see an opportunity to improve a shot. I will also help facilitate the kind of fun that makes for good candid photographs.

What should we wear?

Dress with comfortable clothing you already own, something you feel great wearing and can be your self in and are comfortable to move/play in. Please no matching clothing :)
