Sunday Sessions

Engagement | Couples | Maternity | Newborn | Family

As a wedding photographer, I have built my entire career around capturing humans and love. It is my greatest honour to document and record meaningful moments to help people relive their favourite days. But it’s not only weddings that hold significance.

Enter: Sunday Sessions. Photo sessions for anyone, and any occassion.

Because all moments in time are so precious, and worthy of remembering. The big moments. The little moments. And (my fav): the fleeting in-betweens. The ones that are worthy of hanging on your wall for you to enjoy for the rest of your life. Let’s create your future memories, together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone wanting to document their life right now. I’ve named these “Sunday Sessions” as to not box anyone into one particular occassion. If you want to use this as an Engagement session, Anniversary session, Maternity session, Lifestyle session, Family session, Newborn session, or Couples session, do it! Or heck, even if you want to gift this to someone special, document your dog, celebrate a promotion at work, or do a best friend appreciation shoot, let’s do it! Any excuse to get some updated photos is valid.

Feel free to bring/include up to 6 people total for your one hour session.

Yes yes yes! I know so many of you have fur babies that you’d love to include. And I love working with all animals! If you choose to include your pet in your session, I’d recommend bringing along a helper/friend to help manage your pet when they’re not being photographed. Bringing plenty of treats, water, and toys is also helpful.

I chat through this more in depth in my Session Guide (which you’ll get access to once you book). But if the forecast is looking rainy / blizzardy, we have a few options:

  1. Embrace the weather! Precipitation also means beautiful lighting and lots of drama in your photos. I have over a dozen of those clear and pretty umbrellas we can use (accessible to all clients).
  2. Pivot to a sheltered outdoor location, or an indoor location. I give examples of these in my Secret Ottawa Locations Guide. Other options include shooting at your house, a local restaurant (usually for a fee), or renting a studio.
  3. If the weather is looking too torrential to be fun, we can rain check. It is always up to my clients to make the “rain call”, and I just ask that you give me 24 hours notice before deciding to postpone our session due to weather.

I recommend arriving 5-10 minutes before our session starts (especially if you have kids/babies/pets) to get settled in, fix hair, do up buttons, and get all the little details straightened out before we start shooting. Once our session time starts, we want to maximize every minute so it’s best to be 100% ready to go when that happens.

If you are a couple minutes late to your session, no stress boo! I will do my best to maximize the time we have left and make the most of the remainder of your session. If you are so late that you miss the entire session, it will be considered “cancelled” by you and your non-refundable payment will be kept in exchange for my time.

You will receive your photos 3-4 weeks after your session. I will send you an email with a link to an online password protected gallery where you can download all of your photos in full resolution. You can share the link and password with any family and friends who would also like to view / download / print the photos.
