Storytelling + memory making
Session Guide


First off, thank you for choosing me to be your photographer, to capture your love, and special moments. It means the world to me that you entrust me with this, and I cannot wait to get to know you + your family,  and make this session one you'll never forget. 

I want to capture your family right now, in the moment, exactly as you are, with all of the unique bits and pieces. Goofy, loud, active, shy, or quiet whatever it is, we will have a blast.


How do you prepare?

location:

This part is fun, we have so many fun spots in the Taber/Lethbridge area, and with the option to travel (.50/km) the options are truly endless. From fields to coulees lakes and trees, let me know what your heart is looking for, if you have no idea, it's fine, I have a handful of favorites. 

the day before:

Get a ton of sleep. Get everyone excited to meet a new friend (aka me). 

hours before:

eat a healthy meal, nothing heavy, but something filling. Hungry bellies = grumpy kids and parents. 
Keep everything you do and say to the kids and each other as positive as possible.

during the session:

We will be playful, dance around, jump, and hold hands. There will be a couple poses but for the most part, I will capture each raw moment as it unfolds. We will get everyone together, kids together, kids with each parent, single shots, parent shots, all of the goods. I ask that you refrain from getting upset with each other if the kids are not listening, kids will be kids and if you're stressed, so is everyone else. 

what to wear:

 I recommend that you don't wear neon bright colors. Neutrals, creams, tans, navy blue, dusty pinks, muted colors look really nice . Don't all wear the same colors, instead wear colors that complement each other. Adding layers such as a kimono, flowy dress, floppy hats, and necklaces can help bring life into your images. (ladies, depending on our location bring extra shoes to walk in comfortably)

If you have Pinterest, here's a board I've created for your fashion inspiration.
