About My Process

First off, if you’ve never had photos taken before - it’s going to be waaaay easier and more fun than you probably expect!

A typical lifestyle session will start off by spending a few minutes together just hanging out. If kiddos are involved this will give them a chance to get used to me and let off a little bit of energy in the process. For couples, this is also an opportunity to share more about their story to capture them in the most authentic way.

Once we’re ready to take photos, rather than traditional poses we’ll start off with a few activities and fun little games. This keeps everyone engaged and focused and helps bring out those natural smiles, laughs and connection.

Understanding that every client, location, event is different - I guarantee you that every single session and the way images turn out is unique.

Ahead of time I’ll get you to share a little bit about each yourselves so that I choose prompts that best fit your personalities!

For families with kiddos), once they have had a chance to let out some energy, grabbing a few formal photos is far more simple and easy.

And that’s essentially all there is to it!

Every lifestyle newborn session is very unique, full of emotion, and personality!

The aim is to capture the joy and love parents feel as they welcome their little bundle of joy placing the emphasis on the interaction between the baby and the members of the family. In a way, these sessions are designed to give parents an opportunity to reflect on their love for one another and their babe, relax and just snuggle, while also capturing the home they have built for this itty bitty little being they created together.

Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the client's home, in their space – the place they spend the most time as a family. And they generally occur in the living room, parents' bedroom, and baby’s nursery, not a studio.

During a lifestyle newborn session, the baby is photographed in natural settings and poses that the baby moves into unaided. These sessions are fairly unposed. I often direct clients on where to sit or stand, but mostly use “prompts” to bring out emotions and personality. That said, the only props are what’s at hand, and there are no backdrops. Lighting is often ambient natural light.

Lifestyle newborn sessions are created to document the tiny sweetness of a newborn and also capture a new stage of life as parents.

EVENTS

Wedding, Birthday, Etc.

Ottawa, Ontario! Constance Bay if you're really curious! Session rates include locations within 45km of my home office. Additional fees might apply if I need to travel further than that. So just let me know what you have in mind and we can go from there!

No. Unedited (RAW) files are not available for viewing or purchasing. 

All payments are currently handled
via e-transfer to hello@northsaplingsphotography.com. Receipts are provided for your records

If you decide to cancel your session/event for any reason - the retainer fee is non-refundable.

If inclement weather such as rain, abnormal climatic conditions, or events, regulations that are out of my control, or other adverse conditions prevent the creation of images meeting the artistic standards of North Saplings Photography, I may/must elect to use an alternate location or to reschedule the session and it does not constitute issuing a refund to the Client.

If for any other reason, than what's been mentioned above, I’m not able to photograph upon the agreed day and time and I’m not able to find a substitute photographer – a full refund shall be provided within 28 days.

That’s okay! Many children are shy or have a hard time with posing for photos - which is why we forget the posing and just get you all hanging out and loving on each other! Depending on the age of your child(ren) we may elect a few activities for your session so it gets your little one(s) excited, and at ease which then will allow me capture those natural smiles. Please keep in mind that if kids or other subjects don't engage during the session/event (a.k.a. smile and look at the camera) - re-shoots or refunds don't apply.

No. My aim is to capture subjects as authentic and real as possible. If there's a scar or a pimple (something that is temporary and would go away in 2 weeks) I will absolutely edit it out of your images. I also don't swap faces in photoshop.

I've put together a Wardrobe Guide for my clients to help them choose their best outfits. Once your session or event is confirmed, I will then share the wardrobe guide with you ASAP.

Nope. It is not fair to all my other fully paying clients to offer discounts.

No. Images I deliver are given in their final edited form and may NOT be edited in any way by anyone, including adding filters and/or cropping (social media websites, such as Instagram, are excluded from the cropping clause). The client agrees that the finished artwork product that I provide is the copyrighted image and is final.

Absolutely! Please reach out to me directly for more information. Please note that full session price must be paid upon purchasing a gift card.

Let's get you scheduled and make a plan to capture this beautiful season of your life!
