Information on how to book your Family Portrait photo shoot using a Groupon coupon:

Please read this page entirely before booking your photo shoot.


Thank you so much for your interest in my work!  Offering a complimentary Family Portrait* photo shoot via Groupon is a great way for me to introduce my work to new clients and for your family to enjoy the "photo shoot experience" with little commitment and no risk.  

Your Groupon includes a 1 hour photo shoot (regularly 300.) and 1 - 11 x 17 custom print (regularly 95.). 

I shoot outdoors, on location, at a very natural, quiet Conservation Area in NE Richmond Hill.  I use sunshine and nature as my "studio".  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 collection of portraits for your family, not just one family group shot.  My shooting style is very casual (and fun!).  While I shoot, I will encourage your family to be silly and goof around. I believe that the best portraits are those that capture a family laughing together and having a great time! 

Within 2 weeks, you will be able to view your portraits online as digital proofs**.  Your proofs will be viewed within a password protected gallery, which also functions as a shopping cart.  

In addition to the 11 x 17 custom print provided with your Groupon, you will have the option of purchasing additional portraits in high res. digital file*** (jpeg).   I offer digital files within 3 Collections (packages) to suit every budget.  Collections start at 295..

Terms and Conditions:

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

  • My Groupon is a one time introductory offer.  One per family.  You may purchase additional Groupons as gifts.

  • You may include extended family and pets. Grandparents, Aunts / Uncles / cousins are welcome! Additional family members are $25. each to a max of 15 people.
  • Shoots can be rescheduled only once, due to illness.  Repeated cancellations / requests for rescheduling will result in the forfeiture (or for rescheduling fee of $65.) of your Groupon.  If you or your child are feeling unwell (illness / teething, etc...) please reschedule your shoot.  Unfortunately, photographing an unwell subject is unproductive for all.  Sorry!

  • I will be collecting the HST (13%) on your Groupon after your shoot.
  • A shipping and handling fee of $20. + hst. is charged on all print orders.  Your print is shipped directly from the lab to you (no pick up option).  This is paid when you place your order.
