Family, Children, Couples and Personal Portraits

I want to create images that are special to you — photographs that you and your loved ones will cherish for years to come. Every client is different and so, every session is different. I will create an experience meaningful for you. Choose a location that has significance for you — your home, a favourite park or beautiful natural area — or I would be happy to recommend some lovely locations.

For couple and family portraits, a one-hour portrait package costs $299 + HST and includes:

• all pre- and post-session service (see below for details) and a one-hour photo session with up to 8 people within 20 kms of Stittsville, Ontario

• 20 fully-edited and retouched jpeg images (selected by the client) in low, medium and high-resolution for web and printing

• Print release to allow printing of the photos for personal use.

 

For personal or couple portraits (1-2 people only) a 1/2 hour natural-light session in the Stittsville area costs $149 + HST and includes:

• all pre- and post-session service (see below for details) and a 1/2 hour photo session with 1-2 people in the Stittsville area

• 6 fully-edited and retouched jpeg images (selected by the client) in low, medium and high-resolution for web and printing

• Print release to allow printing of the photos for personal use (or professional use for headshots).

 

Print options are available, including both standard prints and custom archival prints on various papers and canvas. Pricing is available on request.

What should you expect?

As a professional, custom portrait photographer, I spend significant time serving each client, including the following:

Client consultation

• deciding on a venue

• providing information about the session

• providing tips about clothing, make-up and other details

• answering all client questions

• providing and reviewing client information form

Preparing for the session

• planning poses and shots based on the information the client provides

• preparing all equipment and props, if applicable

The session

• travelling to and from the photography site

• the fun part... photographing the clients!

Post production

• uploading and choosing the best photos from each pose for further processing

• editing the images for optimal exposure, colour balance, crop, etc.

• assisting clients in choosing images by phone or in person

• doing a detailed retouch of all chosen images (My goal is always to make clients look their best, but not artificial -- however, extensive retouching is available for an additional charge)

• preparing the images and creating digital files in multiple resolutions for printing and sharing electronically

• preparing the dvd and/or printing the images

• delivering the dvd and/or prints

• feedback is welcomed and encouraged!

 

 

All images will be captured with professional Canon digital SLR camera and lenses.

Additional fees apply for locations over 20 kms from Stittsville, ON, multiple locations, large groups that require more than a
one-hour session and extensive retouching.

The photographer retains copyright ownership of all images.

 

Garden Portraits

 

Do you love your garden? Why not enjoy it year around? Stephanie has 30 years of experience photographing the beauty of flowers and nature and would be honored to capture images of your garden creation. Enjoy the images next winter when it's snowing and too cold to leave your cozy home. View the Garden gallery to see how Stephanie captures nature's beauty.

Option 1: 1 hour session, print package* and a choice of a slideshow or digital frame images, prices starting at $249 + HST.

Option 2: three seasons -- spring, summer and fall, 1/2 hour session in each season, print package* and a choice of a slideshow or digital frame images, prices starting at $399 + HST.

Do you have an elderly relative who is moving into a seniors home?

If your elderly loved one is moving into a senior's residence and has to leave their beloved garden, it's a wonderful opportunity to capture images that can be enjoyed for years to come and become treasured family hierlooms. Contact Stephanie to discuss special gift packages for seniors who will miss their gardens and would be blessed by having beautiful images in their room at their new residence.

 

* A range of print packages are available, customized to your needs and budget. Please contact Stephanie for details.

 

Additional fees apply for locations over 25 kms from Stittsville, ON or multiple locations.
All images will be captured with professional Canon digital SLR camera and lenses.
The photographer retains all copyright and ownership rights of all images.

Art Prints

 

Most of the travel, nature and floral images on this website are available for sale as standard or custom archival prints. For clients in the Ottawa area, an in-home/office design consultation is also available to help you decide on sizing and wall arrangements.

 
Each print will be customized for your needs. Since there are many options for sizing and print quality/materials, please contact Stephanie for options and pricing based on your needs and budget.

Photography Workshops

 

Periodically, I offer photography workshops to small groups of 3-5 people. The workshops are customized to the needs and level of the participants, but there are two general levels:

1. Beginner: "I just bought a DSLR and I'm not sure what to do with it..."

We will begin with interactive instruction on how to use the settings on your camera and the technical and artistic basics of photography. Then we'll go out for a photo excursion to practise different settings and see the effects first-hand. When we return, we'll upload some photos to the computer and do a friendly, positive critique to explore what we've done well and how we can improve.

2. Intermediate: "I've had my DSLR for a while and I more-or-less know how to use it, but I'm not getting the results I want..."

We will begin with interactive instruction on the technical and artistic aspects of photography, moving quickly through the basics and exploring some of the more advanced concepts as well. Then go out for a photo excursion armed with a few assignments to practise what we learned. When we return, we'll upload some photos to the computer and do a friendly, positive critique to explore what we've done well and how we can improve. I'll finish with a demo of what can be done in Adobe Lightroom to enhance the images in post-production.

 

Light refreshments will be provided.
Group Price: $125+HST per person ($75+HST for full-time students).

 

One-on-One Coaching

Looking for a personal coaching session tailored just for you? I offer private coaching that focuses on your specific needs. Give your photography a boost with a customized session. In addition to hands-on photography coaching, these sessions can include time learning Adobe Lightroom, powerful post-production software that will make a significant difference in the quality of your final images.

Price: $80 + HST per hour
