“ Michelle was awesome. The kids were nervous but she made them feel at ease. She was full of positive energy. I normally don't like taking pictures, however this has been the best experience during a photoshoot that I have ever had ”

I'm all about the little details that make a portrait session magical. Once booked, you can expect not only a style guide (newly updated to help with session planning and wardrobe) but also a location guide with some of my favourite places to shoot. I will consult with you every step of the way to make sure every second of the session goes perfectly and to ensure your photos are works of art and exactly what you were imagining. For both outdoor portrait sessions and in studio sessions you have access to all items in my Dream Closet. Once the session is complete, your fully edited gallery will be available for viewing within 2-3 weeks. Prints can be purchased directly from your gallery, and you can always upgrade the digital package you purchased once you fall in love with your images.

more about your session

Petite sessions occur at pre-scheduled times during the year and are highly stylized and themed. (Read: super, super fun!) Petite sessions come with a lower session price with a set number of images (5) with several great options to upgrade should you want to purchase a larger gallery.
