Cozy sweaters, falling leaves, and crisp mornings are coming! The Fall in Ottawa is one of the most popular and gorgeous times of year for family photographs and I can’t wait for the start of my 2022 Limited Edition Fall Sessions.

Can grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles come to the session?
Fall Sessions are for immediate family members only (parents and their children).  At this time I do not offer sessions for extended family members.

What is a Limited Edition Session?

Limited Edition sessions are sessions that take place with a backdrop or location that is only available for a very limited amount of time. With limited daylight and a short, unpredictable window of time where the leaves change colour, these sessions require additional planning, location scouting, and coordination for our team. Limited Edition Sessions, which include Fall Colours and Spring Flowers, are the most popular sessions of the year and sell out almost immediately.

How do I book my session?
Booking your session can all be done online in my boutique starting on August 29th. Sign up to my VIP List and the booking links to all my sessions will be sent straight to your inbox.

Do I have to pay for my session fee in full?
No. A session deposit is required to secure your session. The balance for your session is paid the week your session is scheduled to take place.

What are the session options?
There is one session option, which is a 15 minute Limited Edition Session ($375+HST)– Includes 5 edited and retouched digital images of your choice in colour and 3 complimentary gift prints of your choice.

What are the dates for Fall Sessions?
All sessions take place in the afternoon:

  • Saturday, October 1st (back up date October 2nd)
  • Tuesday, October 4th (back up date October 5th)
  • Wednesday, October 12th (back up date October 13th)
  • Saturday, October 15th (back up date October 16th)
  • Tuesday, October 18th (back up date October 19th)

What types of photos do you take during our session?
Posed, candid, both…it’s up to you!  My clients fill out a detailed questionnaire before our time together so I know what photos and poses are most important to you and your family.

Where will the sessions take place?
I choose all session locations based on accessibility, safety, and available light and backdrops. All sessions take place in the central to east end of Ottawa.  Clients are provided with the specific meeting place the day before the session.

What happens if it’s raining on the day of our session?
I make the decision to postpone sessions based on satellite images and whether it will be actively raining at the time of our session.  This decision is made 1.5-2 hours before the session. Sessions are not rescheduled due to temperature, wet ground, overcast sky, etc.

If sessions are postponed due to rain your session will take place at the same time it was originally scheduled on the date listed in your session description. If there is inclement weather anticipated on your rain date / time you will be offered one alternate session date / time.  There are no exceptions to this policy. If you cannot be present at the listed rain date and someone cannot be found to take your place your session fee will not be refunded nor can it be applied to a future session.

What if we are sick on the day of our session?

Sessions will be postponed if anyone in your household is:

  • sick at the time of your session
  • under isolation

All clients will complete a screening questionnaire before their session.

Do you still offer distanced sessions?

Your preferences for distance/masking will be asked during the session planning process. We offer clients three options:

  • Sessions with no contact between our team and your family (distanced at all times)
  • Sessions with masked contact (our team) with your family (unmasked)
  • Sessions with unmasked contact
