Most of my childhood was spent with my nose stuck in a storybook, daydreaming, writing my own magical tales, climbing my favourite tree, playing with my childhood cat, braiding my friends' hair, picking tiny wildflowers, hunting for magical rocks or four-leaf clovers, and creating colourful artworks to decorate the homes of my loved ones. My childhood portraiture is very much inspired by this romanticized and formative time in my life: rich colours as vibrant as a child's imagination, and timeless wardrobe elements which quietly pay homage to the simpler childhoods of yesteryear.
Every childhood is filled with magic; I'm just grateful to revisit this kingdom, every time a child invites me into their world, my camera in-hand!
I take on limited sessions each month and book well in advance, especially for my highest-demand seasons of spring and autumn. Please reach out at least one season in advance to reserve your spot on my calendar, when possible! Childhood sessions can take place in the studio and/or outdoors year-round; even winter has the potential to lend itself beautifully to a portrait session, as long proper attire is worn!
The use of a variety of timeless props and children's wardrobe pieces such as dresses, rompers, blouses, sweaters, trousers, bloomers, shoes, socks, hats and bonnets are all included with my Session Fee. Please advise your child's sizing at the time of booking, so I can begin planning and preparing for your session early on. I may order fresh flowers or other custom pieces in preparation for your session, too!
My childhood sessions are child-led, which means I prioritize their comfort, go at their pace, encourage a playful atmosphere so their genuine personality can shine through, and break as needed for snacks, etc. I've even been known to plan sessions around toddlers' naptimes to capture some beautiful sleeping portraits! Patience truly is key when working with children, so I'll never cap our session at a specific time limit.
Approximately a week following your session, I will bring a presentation of your unedited proofs to the comfort of your own home, so you can select your favourite portraits for me to edit, and order luxury print products such as custom wall art, heirloom albums, fine art prints, and gifts. Please note all portraits and products are purchased in addition to the Session Fee noted below; the price of each product includes its corresponding JPEG digital file(s) at a resolution size of 3600px, or printable up to 12".
