Session Information

What is included in a session?


  • Sarah’s time and talent.
  • Editing of your images to Sarah’s style and exacting standards - This does not include heavy editing (pimple, wrinkle and weight removal).
  • Sneak peek on our blog and Facebook page within 48 business hours of the session.
  • A private online gallery to view your proofs and choose your products for 10 days OR you may come back to the studio for a proof viewing appointment.

Are the digital files included?

Digital files are not included in any session fee but they may be purchased at an additional cost. Several other products including Albums, Metal Printing, Archival Prints and beautiful canvas prints are also available. Your full proof email notification will include a PDF with pricing.

Where do sessions take place?


Your session can take place on location or in Sarah’s comfortable home studio.

Sarah will gladly hold your session at your favourite local outdoor spot, your home or cottage, your place of business or something unique that she can scout for you. If children will be included, choose the spot they are happiest in! Sarah is willing to travel throughout York Region, Simcoe County, the GTA, and beyond.

Sarah’s home studio is a bright open space with a relaxed atmosphere. There is a sitting area nearby and a kitchen to have a tea or warm up a baby bottle for your little one.

No matter the location, Sarah’s inspired and creative eye, top-of-the-line equipment and outstanding customer service will deliver a positive experience.

What to wear to your session?

This question always comes up and for good reason! Ultimately you want to look cohesive but not matchy-matchy like studio portraits of the 90's. A great tip: choose three colours and tie them together. The examples on this page illustrate how outfits for families and children can be coordinated this way.

How Long will the Session Last?

This will depend on the session you have purchased. Standard full sessions last between 1-2 hours.

What Happens After the Session?

Once your personal session is finished, Sarah’s artistry continues with her selection and superb editing of the very best images captured. As mentioned, you will receive a Sneak peek on Facebook and our blog within 48 business hours. This is NOT your full proof set, simply a small sample to tide you over until the full set is ready. Once your full proof set is available, you will be notified by email with your password, gallery expiry date and some tip and tricks to operate your gallery smoothly. Your full proof set is usually ready within 10 business days but sometimes that is not possible especially around the holidays. A clear timeline will be given at your session.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Absolutely! While the gift of fine art portraiture is a truly amazing and thoughtful gift, please be mindful to not make this a financial burden on the recipient. Your friend or family member will never be pressured to purchase additional products but please just be sure they understand the special nature of fine art photography.  Unlike the “big box” and mall studios…
