2021 portrait sessions
We've had quite a year and a half haven't we? So much has changed, portrait sessions look a bit different too. For now, outdoor sessions or indoor spaces where we can practise physical distancing will be a must, as well as, being extra careful that everyone is well + healthy before we meet.
I've got new processes and health & safety measures in place to help, and as of July 31st I received my second vaccination.
I want everyone to feel as comfortable and safe as possible knowing I have our collective well-being top of mind.
Contracts, paperwork, questionnaires + payments are all done online.
Consultations + planning can all be done by phone, email or zoom.
With my lenses I can safely keep a 6ft (2m) physical distance.
If for some reason we need to be closer, or if you prefer at all times, I can wear a mask.
Hand-sanitizer/wipes are always on hand.
Final images are delivered by digital download in your private gallery.
Prints + artwork can be shipped directly from the manufacturer or curbside pick-up.
in life for someday
you will realize
they were the
"Ally you were amazing with the kids thank you so much! Even my hubby said he had a great time!"
thanks for the love!
1. let's book it
So, you are interested in a session? So ... what happens now? Drop me a line & let's get to know each other! You'll ask some questions, I'll ask some questions to get a feel for your needs and expectations, we'll pull out our calendars and book a potential date & session time. Keep in mind, I am booking sessions 1-2+ months in advance - especially weekends May-December so get in touch asap if you are thinking of booking. Wherever possible I try to make accomodations for maternity and newborns because of course those milestones are so fleeting... When in doubt always message me to check availability.
2. preparing for your session
Once your retainer (session fee) has been received your date is officially yours! I will send you a link to your client portal, it will have a link to your invoices, getting ready suggestions (including clothing ideas) & any special items you will need. I will be in touch just prior to your session to catch up, make sure everyone is feeling healthy, finalize the details, location and a weather check!
3. viewing your proofs
As soon as possible after your session (turnaround times vary during busy season) you will receive a link online proofing gallery containing the best (watermarked) images from your session. This is when you will select the keepers for your online gallery and any prints or products. There is a quick 2 day turn around for orders so I can get your final digital files ready ready, and order any wall art for you asap!
4. delivery of your prints & products
Once payment for your order is processed, I will do any final re-touching to your images, remove the watermarks and upload the final images to your private online gallery. Delivery times vary depending on when and what you order, but generally it can be anywhere from 2-3 weeks (times may vary during peak seasons).
Session fees cover the session time to photograph your family, depending on your package some digital images may be included. You will be able to post these images on your social media, share with family and friends and make prints and albums. Extra files, products like prints and canvas wall art are purchased separately (an add-on to the session fee) from your online proofing gallery.
To book, a non-refundable retainer of the session fee (+hst) and a signed contract are due to reserve your date. Payments are accepted by EMT (email money transfer). Service fees apply for credit card payments.
If you have a special celebration coming up, consider a gift card for session fees and/or products (available in any denomination).
Do you have work or a business that you are passionate about? I can help with that through professional headshots branding + product photography.
