GET TO KNOW your photographer

I am so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your family! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 15 when I used to play with my mother's Pentax camera. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced us to put our camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around us. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.

LOVE, VICTORIA

WHAT TO EXPECT –

LET's CONNECT

After photographing hundreds of portrait sessions over the past few years, I have found that I am not always not the perfect fit for every family. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories & about how they proposed.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with us and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

LOCATION

Once your date is reserved, we'll connect to start chatting about possible locations for your session. We generally recommend choosing one location and if it's a place you haven't been before, it might be helpful to visit during the time our session will take place. That way you have an idea of the light, crowds, closing time, etc! If you're not sure about where you would like to take your photos but you have a general idea of the look you would like, just let us know because we would be happy to recommend a few locations based on your aesthetic!

waRDROBE STYLING

If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck. 

We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!)


The SEssion

On the day of your session, we'll connect to make sure the weather still looks like it's going to corporate. We'll exchange numbers and finalize our meeting location. Please plan for your session to take about two hours from start to finish. 


DELIVERY

All images from our sessions are typically delivered within about two weeks of the shoot date via an online gallery. This gallery will allow you to share your favorites with family, order prints and even download images to share on social media. 

Your gallery will remain active for six weeks.

KEEPSAKES

We are proud to offer our clients a variety of ways to turn their images into keepsakes. Wall-mounted canvas prints to decorate your home, beautiful handmade albums and more. 

And we offer a lifetime guarantee on all our products so you never have to worry about the quality of your investments fading over time! What a special way to remember this season you’re in!

WHAT TO WEAR

When picking outfits we recommend keeping in mind the word “complement” rather than “match.” For example, if Dad is wearing a blue and pink pastel plaid shirt, Mom may want to choose a long, soft blue dress. It can also be a great idea to choose “color-families,” such as pastels or jewel tones. 

For the Littles

With the growth of online shops, shopping for your littles is more fun than ever! We recommend choosing color families (neutrals, blues, etc) over perfectly matching outfits. If you're looking for some inspiration or some of our favorite shops for kids, check out the link to our Pinterest boards below!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?

The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  
To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE RECEIVE?

Praesent ullamcorper, tellus sed feugiat accumsan, eros dui tincidunt erat, imperdiet malesuada neque velit vel erat. Etiam nibh lorem, accumsan quis nisl egestas, commodo ultrices urna. Lorem Ipsum dolar site maet.

WHAT IF IT RAINS?

No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date.

I am so honoured that you're considering working with me to capture your family. To officially reserve your date, please send an email to Victoria info@victoriablaire.com with your names, number of family members, ideal date and anything else I should know. I can't wait to work with you!
