Studio family session

Hi all! I decided I might share one of the regular family studio sessions with you. The regular session lasts for about 1-2 hours. I never set a time limit to my session because it’s the kids who decide whether … Continue reading

Lavender fields mini session

A few weeks ago I met this beautiful family for a mini session in a lavender field. It was hot and humid, daddy didn’t want to be photographed, the little girl wasn’t really cooperating, which was making mommy nervous. After … Continue reading

Children and family photographer Montreal

I had a privilege to photograph this beautiful family last week. It was probably the easiest and the most relaxed mini session this year. Their baby Alice is so sweet and adorable. She just went there and started smiling at … Continue reading

Baby Alice…

I had such a joy photographing this beautiful baby girl a couple of weeks ago. She was 1 month old when I came in for a photo session. So I wasn’t sure she would even fall asleep during the session. But she did! And she sleptĀ  for a couple of hours, letting me change the settings, move her into different baskets and wrapping/unwrapping her. And I must say, this girl is amazing! while some babies wouldn’t settle down without an hour of rocking, this princess needs nothing but being tightly wrapped in a blanket. AMAZING!

And this was the very last shot of the session. Alice was already tired and hungry. This shot was taken in between her screaming!

This year we had the longest winter and the worst spring ever… at least here, in Montreal. It’s May 5th and we are still wearing coats and rain boots. While waiting for the real spring to arrive we decided to offer you a “flower garden” mini session.

Speed photo sessions

Last week a friend of mine asked me to run a super quick photo session. They have moved recently into a new home so she wants to create some wall art for the living room. As I arrived, their little girl was already getting tired. So we had to be super quick. We shot for maybe 10 minutes tops and here is the result:

And here is what I suggested her as her living room wall display:

Wall display

That made me thinking…maybe there’s people who want just a couple of new family pictures to update their wall displays. Or maybe they need a nice portrait of their growing child but they don’t want to have a full-size photo session and, on the other hand, they want something more customized than a chain store. Well, for such occasions I decided to offer a new service for a limited time: “speed photo session”.

For $150 you get:

– a brief pre-session consultation over the phone or email

– a 15-20 minutes photo-session. Only one outfit and one set up is allowed (if it’s on your couch, then it’s only on your couch; if it’s in your backyard, then it’s only in your backyard…)

– 6 edited images via direct download

– wall display project (prints and frames are at extra charge)

Summer family photo session

Hey all! I was reviewing my work from 2013 and I found a couple of summer family sessions that I had never published. Here is one of them. I had such fun photographing this beautiful family! I even had a chance to share a very special moment with them: their baby boy was standing up without any support for the first time!!!
