Let's get to it
If you’re looking for a photographer to get the traditional posed, perfect big-smiles all around colour-coordinated shots, we might not be a perfect match. That’s all good – you should know what I’m about because you deserve a photographer that will fit your needs.
I want family photography to be more than just a pose. I want to give you something that will increase in value over time because it’s all we got to remember from this beautiful place at this precious time with your incredible humans when we’re all old and wrinkly.
You’ve gotta be ok with me getting all those perfectly imperfect moments. Yes you’ll get all the family together, and everyone will look good. But I want to give you something you’ll look back on over and over that will capture this incredibly unique moment in time. I want to give you something more, something real.
So how does it work?
FIRST, SAY HEY
Tell me about you guys, your vibe, your heart. I want to join your adventure and I want to hear about the tales that you want to capture in our session. Say hey and we’ll set up a time to chat. Got questions? Ask away! After we’ve gotten to know each other, I’ll send you a contract, you send me a deposit, and we’re good to go!
A UNIQUE PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPERIENCE
Making breakfast, walking the seawall or jumping in muddy puddles – let’s capture those precious and fleeting, real and pure moments in the everyday adventure of your family. I’ll come to your home or we can set out to any stunning Vancouver location for a unique photographic experience in one of the most picturesque cities in the world!
THERE WILL BE GOOSEBUMPS & BUTTERFLIES
I’ll provide you with an online gallery for you to choose the images that will give you those pimply goosebumps and fluttery butterflies. You’ll get all the family shots you wanted and the ones you never expected. I’ll craftily edit your selections and provide you with full resolution images to burn up your Insta or any Pinterest-inspired project!
Why choose me?
Authentic moments. Never posed.
“Steve captured us not ‘unnaturally posed.’”
I’m not about those stiff poses. Love cannot be staged. Kids aren’t made to stand still. I don’t want to tell you how to look like yourselves, I’m about capturing and documenting those real & pure moments in the most natural way possible… even when everybody looks good.
Be Free. Run Wild.
“Steve did an amazing job documenting our family despite the fact that our 4 year old’s main ‘pose’ is to hold his hand in front of his face! Thanks so much Steve for being so patient!”
“Steve was very sensitive to the children’s needs in particular our son who had a terrible cold on the day and wasn’t his usual happy self.”
I love kids because they’re always going do things on their own terms. I expect the whole range of moods and silly poses, and I love them for it. During our session I will work hard to win the trust of your kids and to constantly change things up so that we get the pictures that we want to get.
Capturing Their True Selves
“Steve accurately captured both our kids’ essence at this precious stage of life.”
“I can see each of my boy’s personalities shine through in the photos.”
I want to capture your kids actually looking like themselves. We’ll talk about your kids’ personalities but most of all I’ll observe closely and capture those in-between moments that mean more than words can ever explain.
A Fun Experience
“Neither myself nor my husband like having our photo taken but we really wanted some family shots. Steve somehow managed to make the experience very enjoyable. It felt like we were just having a lovely family walk in the park.”
“We had a fantastic time during our photo session with Steve. He made everyone feel at ease.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed the session and love our photos! Thanks for a great time, Steve!”
I want your experience with me to be more than just a family photo session. We hang out in beautiful Vancouver locations or intimate spaces in your home. Let’s capture those fun moments naturally, together.
This is who I Am
“Steve made the entire process so easy from start to finish. I was blown away at the professionalism of the presentation and the time and care he put into [the finished product]”
“Thanks so much Steve for being patient and professional, and making our shoot so much fun!”
As a parent I truly value your time, and I show this through professionalism and client service.
