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 family portraits that go beyond the confines of a studio. We will find a beautiful natural backdrop and make your photography session fun and rewarding. Pets are welcome to join in — or have their own session!

Graduation pictures, sibling photos, and boudoir are some of my other 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 offer 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 a CD 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 30 minutes 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.
