So what are you getting yourself into?

Sessions can be held in at home, or at a destination of your choosing. I’ve shot as far away as Hawaii and as close as the neighborhood park. So if I can get there, we can get the pictures done.

Popular Edmonton and area locations include:

  • Laurier Park
  • Rafters Landing
  • Muttart Conservatory grounds
  • Kinsmen Park
  • McTaggart
  • Jackie Parker Park
  • University of Alberta North Campus
  • Walterdale Park
  • Downtown Edmonton
  • Devonian Gardens (Devon)
  • Lion’s Park (St. Albert)
  • Festival Place (Sherwood Park)
  • Woodbridge Park (Sherwood Park)
  • Alexandra Park (Leduc)

Once the pictures have been captured, they go online in a gallery that is available for as long as I am around (not forever, but certainly for many years to come) and it can be accessed from anywhere as well. This makes it easy for you to share your event with family and friends around the world. If you want to control who sees your pictures, I have a number of privacy options available to you.

I also am a strong believer in referrals and repeat customers, so the more you use my services, the better my rates get, and if you send me a referral, I’ll be sure to give everyone a great deal.

Finally, there is the issue of reproduction rights. If you are a family and purchase the files from your session, you will be granted permission to reproduce the images for non commercial purposes. If you are looking for a volunteer photographer to help your non profit’s event. My images are available to you under the Creative Commons license CC By -ND 2.5. If you are using the images for a commercial purpose, terms are negotiated individually.

Any other questions?

Rates listed below are effective October 1, 2016. Files, and/or prints, are not included in the session fee unless specifically stated in the contract. If your session does not take all the time you had budgeted, credit for prints/files can be arranged. Times are rounded up in half hour increments.
