BOOKING

How do I book a photo session?

Send me a message via the contact page and we’ll get started on the booking process.

What is your availability?

I shoot a limited number of sessions every month so my availability varies from week to week. If you have a specific date in mind for your session, contact me and we’ll try to make it work!

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, e-transfer or credit card.

Will we sign a legal contract?

Yes! A contract is the best way to ensure we’re all on the same page about the services that will be provided. It helps to clearly explain what is included with your photo session, the payment schedule and protect both parties should there be any dispute.

 

I’m not sure when my baby will arrive, how do I Pick a session date?

Newborn sessions are given a tentative booking date near your due date as a placeholder. Once your little one arrives, you or your partner will send me a quick email/text and we can either keep the original date or adjust as needed. My goal is to keep newborn photography as stress free as possible - it’s no problem at all to bend to your little one’s needs!

How far in advance can I book my wedding?

I find most of my couples book in 6-12 months in advance of their wedding date. But, don’t let this stop you from getting in touch. I love last minute weddings as much as those that are in the distance!

 

Payment

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, e-transfer or credit card.

 

When do I pay for the session?

A date reservation fee is due when you sign your contract. The remainder of your session fee is due on your session date. You’ll receive automatic reminders for these payments via email.


About Kate

Are you a part-time photographer?

Yes, I am. I’m a full-time forensic specialist during the week and a professional photographer on weekends. I dreamed of being a photographer from a young age and have been doing it for two decades now!

I’m a firm believer that it isn’t the camera that takes the photograph. But, great gear helps my images shine just that much more. I shoot with professional Canon gear and always have a backup camera and lenses on hand.


Sessions

What cities to you travel to?

I live in Burnaby, BC and photograph in Vancouver and the surrounding Lower Mainland. I can be convinced to go further! Try me.

What should I wear?

I always say wear something you feel comfortable in! This goes for the kids too. If you aren’t comfortable if usually shows in your photos. Avoid wearing busy patterns and large logos that distract from you photos.

 

What happens if it rains?

Rain is such a constant in this area and such a drag on session days. I monitor the weather closely, if heavy rain is in the forecast, we’ll re-book for another day.

I live in a small space, will that work for an at-home session?

Yes! I’m used to shooting (and living) in small spaces. We’ll work in the rooms with with most natural light. Don’t stress about your place!
