FAQS

+ WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHING FAMILIES?

When it comes to families with little ones we'll organize the session around an activity. Instead of treating your kids to ice cream if they pose for portraits, let's actually go for ice cream and I'll photograph that. Other options include visiting Butterfly World, bowling, heading to the museum, or playing at their favourite park.

If you have older kids, teens or adult children, I take the pressure off stiff and formal posing that only makes everyone feel uncomfortable and instead give you instructions to help you relax and be yourselves, all while looking amazing.

+ I want candid photos of my family, but I don't want to look bad. Do you still fix up blemishes?

First of all, you're going to look awesome in your portraits! Blemishes and double chins will definitely be fixed without looking fake.

As a self-conscious person myself, I understand that you want flattering photos, and we can still achieve this without any stiff-and-formal posing.

In my 12 years as a wedding photographer I've photographed thousands of people. I know how to make you look awesome without things feeling forced. Plus, I'm happy to give you some ideas and suggestions to get it all going so it's fun.

+ What if I need one or two posed photos to share with more traditional members of my family?

I am always happy to take a few frame-worthy, traditional look-at-the-camera-and-smile photos during our session. If your child makes a bit strange it may be a good idea for me to come a bit earlier and just get your family used to me being around before I start to take photos. With some families it's better to do the traditional stuff at the beginning, and with other families it's better to do the traditional stuff after your kids have had a chance to have fun.

 

 

+ Where are you based?

I photograph family portraits in beautiful Victoria B.C. on Vancouver Island.

+ Where are you based? Can you travel?

Absolutely. I'd love to photograph your family enjoying some vacation activities, or during a special event. I am also happy to combine both event photography with group portraits throughout your celebration.

+ Where are you based? Can you travel?

In addition to family portrait photography, I am also a wedding photographer in Victoria, B.C. Visit my wedding photography blog to view recent celebrations: www.funkytownphotography.com/blog/
