To book your Family Portrait Photo Shoot:

Please contact me via the contact page.  Please include the 8 digit code (below the barcode) on your Groupon for validation.  

I shoot exclusively outdoors (weather permitting).

  • Please be aware that I am now booking weekends in late October / early November;
  • If you are interested in purchasing the digital files from your shoot, I offer them for purchase;
  •  All digital files are high resolution, beautifully edited and print ready.  Files are offered within Collections (packages) depending on your budget.  Digital File Collections are for those who would like to print multiple prints as gifts, create their own Family albums, wall displays, Holiday cards / gifts, etc... ;
  • I honour all expired Groupons.


Offering a complimentary Family* Portrait shoot (sitting fee only) via Groupon is a great way for me to introduce my work to new clients and for you to enjoy the "Family Portrait Photo Shoot" experience with little commitment and no risk.  

My approach to photography is very casual.  I will encourage your family to be silly, goof around and have fun. I believe that the best portraits are those that showcase your family laughing together and having a great time.  

I shoot outdoors, on location, using available light and nature as my "studio".  At your shoot, I will photograph your family in various compositions... individual portraits of each child, the children as a group and the family as a whole. My goal is to create a complete collection of 40+ portraits for your family, not just the one "traditional" family shot.  

Following your shoot, you will be able to view your portraits as proofs** within an online, password protected gallery.  This gallery also functions as a shopping cart from which you will place your order. 

In addition to the custom print included with your Groupon shoot, you will have the option of purchasing your portraits in digital file (high resolution jpegs***).  Digital file Collections (packages) start at 295.00.

Terms and Conditions:

Booking a shoot is an agreement to these terms & conditions.  If you do not agree with my terms and conditions, you are welcome to request a refund from Groupon.

  • For Groupon shoots, I travel a maximum of 30 km. from L3X 3E1.  I reserve the right to reject any location that I feel is unsuitable or unsafe. For locations further then 30 km., I charge a travel fee (time plus gas)...  (i.e.: downtown Toronto / High Park) up to a max. of 50 km. from L3X 3E1.
  • Shoots can be rescheduled only once, due to illness or poor weather. Repeated cancellations / requests for rescheduling will result in the forfeiture (or for rescheduling fee of $50.) of your Groupon.  If you or your child are feeling unwell (illness / teething, etc...) please reschedule your shoot. Photographing an unwell subject is unproductive for all.
