Professional Wardrobe Consultation
You'll find a thorough Style Guide in your Welcome Package and it will tell you everything you need to know to prepare your family's choice of dress for your session, but let's face it, we all know being a mom can lead to an outdated wardrobe that doesn't make you feel as amazing as you are. If this sounds true to you, or you're simply game for treating yourself to an amazing experience you totally deserve, I have amazing news. I've worked together with Toronto's style and image consulting queen Suzanne Colmer to bring you a 'Personal Stylist for Photo Sessions' package.
This virtual online Personal Stylist for Photo Sessions package includes:
- Professional advice for your and your families outfits
- Feedback on pieces from your own wardrobe
- Links to pieces that will complete your ideal image
- A summary of tips and tricks to help you look more put together everyday

Baby Calming, Preparation and Support for Newborns - the Newborn Zen Session
One of the first rules of being the parent of a newborn is asking for and accepting help. Help is right here.
I am pleased to offer the services of certified post-partum doulas (a.k.a. newborn baby experts) to come in to your home an hour before your newborn photo session to:
- help soothe baby
- care for the baby while mom and dad prepare themselves and other children for the session
- assist with breastfeeding or bottle feeding
- bathe and prep baby
- provide an air of calm and peace
First-time moms will especially appreciate the feeding, bathing and calming support, while experienced moms will appreciate the care for baby while they wrangle their other children.
The amazing doulas I bring to you will also stay into the session to ensure our newborn babes are happy.
