2018 Portraiture Pricing

2018 Portrait Session Pricing


I love photographs. The stories they tell, the memories they invoke.

And I love that each person we photograph is completely and truly unique.

This is why I don’t offer cookie-cutter packages.

I strive to give each client the attention and respect deserved by listening and building a package that works for them.

That being said, I also know that it’s important to have an idea of the investment you will be making in your portraiture.

So take a moment, and read a little about the sessions I offer and the base price for each.

Once you’re ready, we can then set up a time to chat and build the perfect portraiture package for you.

Prints are a beautiful way to display your photographs. I offer prints in a variety of sizes and finishes.

Gallery Wrapped Canvas is the most popular product. Your image is printed on archival quality canvas and stretched tight over a wooden frame. Gallery wraps come ready to hang in your home. All gallery wraps are custom priced. Please inquire for more information.

Accordion Mini-Books are a best-seller! An accordion mini-books come in sets of three and make the best gifts for grandparents. They are perfect for carrying in your purse, and are magnetized so they can be displayed on your fridge. The books pull out to showcase your favourite images from your session.

Albums are my absolute favourite way to present images. The storybook albums I design are heirlooms, something you will enjoy for a lifetime. Please inquire further for album sizes and pricing, as well as to see studio samples.

Gift certificate are available in any denomination.


Digital Images

My most frequently asked question is whether or not I offer digital images.

Yes! Of course I do. Although I love to see my work printed by a professional lab (and not ruined by one-hour labs), I understand that my clients want to have their images to share on social media, etc.

Each of the above packages includes the digital images.

Here is a step-by-step breakdown of the process:

1. Session is booked, either through email or phone and a deposit is sent.

2. We have a blast! Your session is photographed and paid for in full.

3. I head home to my office where the images from your session are uploaded and edited.

4. Approximately two weeks after your session, you will be emailed with a link and password to your private online viewing gallery.

5. You will be able to download all of your images from the gallery to your computer.

6. Your online gallery is active for one month, any prints, gallery wraps, albums, etc. can be ordered during this time.

7. If you purchased a package that includes a Keepsake USB, prints or an album, the online gallery is where you will be able to make your selections.

7. Your images are archived after one month, and stored for safe-keeping. There is a $25 fee for your gallery to be re-opened.


HST is not included in these prices. Please add 13%.
