The Experience

The Experience


 
 

With every session that I shoot my main goal is to make my clients feel comfortable.  I don't do a ton of super posey photos....I prefer natural and unforced photos.

I often have parents with young children telling me how sorry they are their 2 or 3 year old wouldn't sit still.  Honestly, have you ever met a 2 or 3 year that can sit still for more than a minute? LoL! :) It is perfectly normal for me to run around and take a bunch of photos while your kids are being just that, kids! :)  My goal is to capture your munchkins in their element, I'll get down on the ground with them or chase them around (that's after they've become comfortable with me).  Often times those are the best photos...just them being natural, smiling, playing and having fun! :)

Relaxed, natural and fun!  That's my kind of session! :)

Newborn sessions are one of my absolute favorite sessions!!  The session is typically between 2-3 hours long (every baby is different).  I always allow plenty of time to allow for changes, feeding and some snuggles if needed.  I work in natural light and may use different areas in your home to utilize the best lighting.  Newborn sessions are best done between 5-12 days after the baby is born.

FAQ


 
 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When is the best time to book a newborn session?
Please contact me at least a month prior to your due date (last minute works sometimes too), this way I can tentatively set a few session dates about a week or two after your due date. Newborn sessions are best done between 5-12 days after the baby is born.

When should we shoot maternity session?
It is really up to you, when you feel the most comfortable....anywhere between 32-38 weeks.

What if it's raining and our session is booked for outdoors?
We can absolutely reschedule!

What if we need to reschedule?
That is perfectly ok, stuff happens that is beyond our control so no worries! :)

Do we get digital files?
Yes, with each session I provide you with digital files with permission to print at a lab of your choice (or you can order professional quality prints through me).

How long will it take before we receive our photos?
My typical turnaround time is 4-6 weeks but I always try to get them done much quicker. :)  I always post a few sneak peek images within a few days from the date of your session. :)

Ahhh.....what should we wear?
The days of super "matchy-matchy" are long gone!  I would encourage you to firstly stay true to who you are and be comfortable....but kick it up a notch! :)  Choose a palette and then coordinate from there, think textures, layers, accessories like scarves, hats, jewelry are always a nice touch. Feel free to get some wardrobe inspiration from Pinterest

Do you have a studio?
I am a natural light photographer and the great outdoors is my studio.  There are many great outdoor and public indoor locations and I can absolutely help you decide on the perfect spot for your shoot!

What types of payment do you take?
Cash and cheque...and I'm in the process of setting up for CC so make sure to ask if that is your preferred method of payment! :) (cheques payable to Alvina Penner)

Can you just Photoshop out my wrinkles and make me look slimmer?
Oh the dreaded word "Photoshop." Ha ha.... so my answer is no, I believe that we are all beautiful and I like to keep my images as natural as possible.  I will do minor retouches to cover blemishes or scars if you so desire.  I do not do any major Photoshop work, I like to shoot as accurate as possible in camera so I do not have to spend hours editing.

I just wanted to say that I have had several photo sessions with this amazing photographer. She is kind, patient, and gets right in the action to get the most real shots possible. I appreciate her dedication to her clients and to the photos she produces. She is open to feedback and welcomes any ideas for "poses" that you may have. If you are looking for an amazingly talented photographer, I would highly recommend Alvina Grace Photography.
