We're thrilled to have you join us for our Fall mini-sessions! To ensure that your 20-minute session runs smoothly and that you have a wonderful experience, here's a guide on what to expect:
Booking and Payment:
- Please note that the remaining session fee is due before your session and can be conveniently paid through the booking website.
- Arrive on time and ready to start your session promptly.
Day 1 - Sunday, October 15, 2023 - Civic Garden:
- Address: 625 Springbank Dr, London, ON N6K 4T1.
- Meeting Point: Look for the big willow tree near the parking lot.
- Spotting Your Photographer: To make it easier for you to find me in a bustling location with several photographers, I'll stand out with my distinct purple hair! For reference, you can also check out a photo of me so you'll know exactly who you're looking for.
- Photo Opportunities: The Civic Garden offers a plethora of picturesque spots, and we'll explore the area to capture a variety of backgrounds for your photos.
Day 2 - Sunday, October 22, 2023 - Meadowlily Woods Trail:
- Address: 65 Meadowlily Rd S, ON N6M 1C3 at the bottom of the hill and to the right.
- Nature Lover's Paradise: This location is perfect for those who appreciate the beauty of nature.
- Terrain Note: Please be aware that this location involves some walking on uneven terrain, so wearing comfortable shoes is a must.
- Meeting Point: To optimize our time for the best photo spots, I'll be meeting you further down the trail. Due to the back-to-back nature of the mini-sessions, I won't be able to meet you in the parking area. To help you find me with ease, I've included a map below for reference and a photo of the location to meet at! It will be right before you cross a little wooden bridge.
- Communication: You'll also have my phone number for any questions or concerns regarding the meeting spot or if you feel you're in the wrong location.
- Explore the Trail: After your session, I encourage you to explore this breathtaking trail, immersing yourself in the captivating sights and sounds of fall.
For Families with Small Children:
- If you have little ones, we recommend dressing them in one set of clothing for the car ride and changing them when you arrive. This helps prevent spills or mishaps en route.
- It's a great idea to bring water, a snack, and perhaps a small treat for positive reinforcement (we're not above bribing small children for good behavior!).
- However, please avoid bringing toys that you wouldn't want to appear in the photos, as children may be reluctant to part with them. We've had instances of toy cars and sunglasses becoming unexpected stars of the session!
Props and Personal Items:
- If you have something special you'd like to include in your session, feel free to bring it along and let us know. We're more than happy to incorporate meaningful items.
- If you're bringing props or personal items, please bring them in one large bag, and we'll carry it with us during the shoot.
- If you're looking for clothing ideas, consider complementary color palettes with one or two patterns. Avoid being overly matchy but aim for a cohesive look.
- If you're unsure about your outfit choices, don't hesitate to message us, and we'll help you narrow it down.
- Although we won't have time for an outfit change during the 20-minute session, you can wear a sweater or jacket for a few shots and then remove it to create the illusion of a second outfit.
Our Photography Style:
- Our style is fairly organic, combining both posed shots and candid moments that capture your family's natural essence.
- We'll provide guidance when needed but encourage genuine interactions among family members. Our goal is to capture real smiles and authentic moments.
Enjoyment and Fun:
- Our primary goal is for you and your family to enjoy the session and have fun. We believe that relaxed and happy families make for the most beautiful photographs.
Sneak Peek and Photo Delivery:
- Within two days after our shoot, you'll receive a sneak peek of 3-5 images to get a glimpse of the magic we captured.
- The rest of your photos will be available within 2 weeks and delivered to you through a convenient online gallery.
We're eagerly anticipating our session together and the opportunity to capture precious moments with your family. See you soon amidst the beautiful autumn colors!
