Portraits and Pets

“Words can not describe how I felt looking at those BEAUTIFUL pictures that you took of us!
They brought tears to my eyes. You captured us to a T.” -Natalie and Rylie, Kamloops, British Columbia

I aim for dynamic portraits that go beyond the confines of a studio. We will find a beautiful natural backdrop and I will guide you through poses and take candids without you even realizing it!  Sessions with me are spent walking, laughing, and getting to know each other, with photos taken in between.  You will be amazed at all the beautiful images that result.  Pets are welcome to join in — or have their own session!

Family portraits and graduation pictures are some of my popular portrait services. Don’t think you are a model? My job is to make you look great, and my relaxed and friendly attitude will put you at ease and ready to act the part!

A 60-90 minute private session is $150.  You will have a dedicated portrait session resulting in 40-60 images, colour correction service, and a guided in-person or online ordering session to review your images and choose your prints and product.  Your images will typically be ready 1-2 weeks after your session and your ordering session will be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

I hold mini session events occasionally, where the session fee is $75-$100 depending on included products.  These are 20 minutes and usually produce 15 images.   If you only need a few photos and would like to take advantage of this smaller session fee, get in touch to see when the next event will be.  Or, you can gather a couple friends or family who want photos done too, and I will plan a custom mini session event (minimum three 20 minute sessions).

I offer professional archival prints in a stunning metallic finish, as well as an array of unique items, including custom designed lay-flat photo albums, mini accordion books, canvas gallery wraps, metallic standouts, and video slideshows. Most of my clients invest $500-$1200 in prints and products of their favourite images after a photo session.  My software allows me to show you what your images will look like on your walls to help you plan your display of your new photos!  Don’t let digital files of your memories sit in a drawer for years before you get around to printing them… you can have your professional prints much sooner, and their quality ensures they will last a lifetime.

All sessions are on-location.  I will come to you, or we will meet in a location that suits your needs.  I live on an acreage in Barriere and photograph throughout the Kamloops and North Thompson regions, as well as travelling province-wide, to Alberta, and even internationally on request.  Travel within 30km of Barriere and Kamloops is complimentary; mileage beyond this is compensated at a rate of $0.50/kilometer.  Travel fees may be lowered if multiple sessions are booked in an out-of-town locale, and flat rates are available for many areas within two hours of Kamloops.
