You’re ready to capture some new loved-up moments with the people you love the most. You believe in capturing memories with authentic feeling and emotion.
It's all about looking back at your photos and seeing genuine smiles and laughter, nothing forced. You want to have gorgeous photos to remember this particular season in your life...
You know life moves quickly and it’s important to pause and capture the beauty of your family's love.
Family sessions are designed to invite you to relax and go with the flow. Your session will have a focus on capturing real moments. This means we are not going to spend a lot of time fussing or posing you.
I will help guide you through the entire process, but we will spend most of our time letting your session unfold as naturally and organically as possible.
The unplanned, in-between moments are the ones you'll want to be able to remember in all the years to come.
After almost a decade of photographing so many amazing families, I have a wonderful list of tried and tested locations to offer as ideas for each season throughout the year.
When we connect about your session date, we'll chat about ideal times for natural light if you are choosing an outdoor location.
Indoor studio settings are also available and need to be booked with advanced timing to ensure we can fit you into the shared studio booking calendar.
Your session will be about getting everyone feeling relaxed and comfortable. I’ll be there to gently guide you into positions that feel good. I’m there to give direction and find those flattering angles and perspectives.
Remember, all you need to do is enjoy being with the people that mean the most to you.
You’ll receive a mixture of relaxed candid photos and some natural feeling group photos too!
Kind words from past families...
Fall mini sessions have never looked better during golden hour at Assiniboine Forest in late September with this fam jam! The location is perfect for relaxed candid family fun in the tall prairie grasses.
You can never go wrong with summer family photos at a nearby park. In the summer, choosing a session time in the early evening is going to give us the most beautiful light for photos!
Let your little ones run around and have some fun outdoors for your next family photo session! Take a peek into what your next fall morning could look like this year at a local spot like Assiniboine Forest.
Another prime time in the year for family photos is fall. With so many great outdoor locations for us to use, the options are endless. Here's a late fall session at Henteleff Park.
Late summer / early fall is a great time of year for those new family photos. Here's a peek into a session at Assiniboine Forest at golden hour in late September with this family.
With the right layers and extra hand warmers - winter at Assiniboine Park is a great spot in the city for some fun family photos before the holiday season. Your fur babes are always welcome to join us!
"Somehow she even got our very active dog to sit and take great photos"
allison & erickson family
"We had a wonderful experience as a family with Jenn. She was creative, efficient, and inspiring. Her photographs were top quality and somehow she even got our very active dog to sit and take great photos!"
"I cried when I saw the photos and know they will be treasured for years to come."
"I knew I wanted photos of our new baby when he was born but didn't want posed newborn photos. When I saw Jenn's Instagram I knew she would give us the natural lifestyle photos we were looking for - photos that showed who we were every day. I cried when I saw the photos and know they will be treasured for years to come...Will definitely be calling Jenn up for our future family milestones!"

what clients are saying
Sessions are typically 45-60 minutes.
Wear what makes you feel the most comfortable! These are your photos and what you wear should make you feel good. Consider having outfits from the same family of colours. Nothing has to be matchy-matchy but complimentary colours and/or neutrals are always a great choice.
All photo collections are delivered via online gallery with high resolution downloads, web-sized downloads & full print release - you can print your own photos.
