I am based in Ottawa, ON, however I also cater to its surrounding areas as well as the Ottawa Valley.

Your session can take place at or in your home or at a location mutually decided upon by both parties. If you're looking for suggestions, I can provide a list of potential locations to suit your needs. I recommend locations that are familiar to the family and where you feel most comfortable, whether it be indoors or out. If you have access to a unique property, please let me know.
I do not own a studio. My photography style is more casual and natural, therefore I only shoot in clients' home or outdoors.
I like to take advantage of the natural “golden” light that occurs at either the beginning (sunrise) or the end (sunset) of the day, especially during the warmer months. Midday sun can be harsh and the summer heat can often play a factor in the overall comfort of those posing for pictures. During the cooler months, the sun is much less harsh and sets earlier so late afternoon sessions are great. Most mini sessions are scheduled during the afternoon/early evening.
For indoor sessions, I recommend morning sessions for best light.
Please note: Your family schedule/routine plays a big role when booking the time of your session. It's best to schedule a time slot that does not interfere with naps or eating. It's also best to avoid booking a session in between family activities or just a busy day in general. You want to be calm, comfortable and happy.
