  • december promo: $50 off 2014 portrait sessions!


    as much as i LOVE food,

    i also love photographing couples, families, and adorable little kids!

    i’ll be raising my portrait fees in 2014, so i thought i’d end this year with a portrait promotion!

    if you make your deposit before the end of 2013 for a natural light portrait session for any time (that works for both you and me) in 2014,
    you’ll still be eligible for the 2013 portrait fee of $400, plus an additional $50 off!

    i’ll even throw in a free 5×7 canvas print (from your future session) to the first 5 people to book!

    some questions you may have:

    who would a portrait session be for?
    this is good for individual portrait sessions up to families of 6!

    would this apply to wedding portrait sessions?
    this does not apply to wedding portrait sessions, sorry.

    do we have to settle on a session date immediately?
    nope! we can tentatively pick a month of the year that works, but there’s no pressure and we’ll figure out a date that works best for everyone.

    what do i get with a portrait session?
    you get a minimum of 30 high-res custom edited digital jpegs from our session, which is usually between 1 and 3 hours

    do you take credit card payments?
    yes. also cheque or e-transfer.

    what if i live outside of vancouver?
    i’ll travel for free to the following cities: (north vancouver, west vancouver, burnaby, richmond, new westminster, port coquitlam). anywhere further than that and we can work out an additional travel fee.

    any other questions or to make your booking, email me at or give me a call: 778.991.9142

    family sneak peak | vancouver lifestyle photography


    a tiny preview of a photo session i did last week.
    this little family was SO MUCH FUN.
    3 year olds are the best.
    first time i met her,
    i walked in the door & she asked me “do you want a marble?”
    second time i met her,
    at the end of our session, she told me “i love you!”
    i wanted to keep her.
