Boudoir Photography Montreal

Boudoir Model Call 

After having photographed beautiful mamas and their little ones for years, I have been bitten by the boudoir photography bug. I am working on a brand new boudoir photography website but I wanted to offer a sneak peak on the blog for you right away. I am offering a free session as well as 20 high-resolution images to five awesome women who will allow me to use a few images for my website. The images can be sweet or sexy and all will be within your comfort zone.

The model call will take place on the 23rd and 24th of March in my Pointe-Claire studio.

 

Please contact me as soon as possible to reserve your spot. I am looking for models of all shapes and sizes :).

When To Book Your Newborn Photography Session

When it comes to booking your newborn photography session, there are a lot of questions about how the process works. Since your new little peanut isn’t here yet, it’s hard to figure out a schedule. Here is what I suggest:

Contact me during the beginning of your third trimester to set a date for the session. I will hold a date based on your due date.

I will also hold a spot for two backup dates – one a week after the original session date, and one a week prior to your due date. This ensures that if your little one doesn’t come according to schedule you’ll still be covered.

Keep in contact with me as your pregnancy comes to a close so we can be prepared. After the baby is born, give me a call or shoot me a message so we can make sure that one of the dates we have set will work out.

Triplet Montreal Maternity Photography

This gorgeous couple is expecting triplets! They have been in the hospital on bedrest for the last few weeks so I joined them in their hospital room for their maternity photography session. It was a little cramped but you would never know it by the pictures. Here’s a little peek.

Baby Photography Montreal

This little guy was adorable. Look at those eyes! He’s a little over a month old for his baby session. It might be a little harder to get older newborns to sleep during the session but they always fall asleep if we wait long enough.

Pregnancy Photography Montreal

When to schedule your pregnancy photography session.

I suggest contacting me as soon as you know your due date. We can then decide on a time that is best for your photos. I like to schedule your pregnancy session around the time you are seven to eight months along. This way, you are far enough along to show off your baby bump, but not to the point where you are going to be miserable in your photos.

As you go along your pregnancy, things may change with your due date, or you may start showing sooner and want to do them earlier. Just contact me and we can discuss this and help you find a new date.

If you’d like to add on a gender reveal session, we typically do those photos shortly after your 16 to 20 week ultrasound when the baby’s gender is discovered.

Here are a few images from a recent session. This couple is adorable!

Top 5 FAQs for newborn photography sessions

Planning a newborn photo session? Here are my five most frequently asked questions—and tips for your newborn photo session. Get ready for the cutest pictures ever!

What should baby wear? Unless there is a sentimental or special outfit, don’t worry about how baby is dressed. A simple wrap or diaper cover (if you want those cute naked baby shots) will do just fine. I bring along a variety of wraps, baskets and other props we can utilize throughout the shoot. Make sure to keep the diaper loose prior to the session to avoid lines or red marks on the skin. Also, avoid socks which can also often leave marks on the skin.

We’re shooting in the house—how should I prepare before you arrive? Turn off the AC and any fans, and let the room get warm. Babies hate cold, especially when they’re naked! Also, turn off the TV, radio or any other distracting devices so we can focus and the environment will remain calm and peaceful for baby. Please don’t move any furniture until I get there. I can work in very small spaces and can usually make do without changing a thing.

What props should I have on hand? I bring everything needed for your newborn photography session. Check out my portfolio for other newborn shots, and see what other parents are using! If you see something you like, let us know and we’ll be sure to coordinate it ahead of time. And if you don’t see what you had in mind prop-wise, let me know, too. I work with a number of amazing vendors and can source just about anything!

How should I prep baby? Make sure his/her belly is full—even if it means he/she will be a little sleepy at the start of the session. I often have mothers nurse their babies as I’m setting up so that baby is as full as possible. Look at other newborn photos, and you’ll likely see sleeping newborns in most of the shots. That’s because while they’re sleeping they naturally fall into the best poses—and that means adorable photos! Their eyes will definitely open throughout the shoot, so we can capture those “waking” moments, too.

Anything else I need to know? While we will never leave baby unattended or in a precarious pose or prop, I do ask that you stay near your baby with a hand on or near him/her at all times.

I encourage everyone to join in for the newborn session and pose the baby with parents and siblings. I ask that everyone dress in neutral tones without flashy colours, patterns or logos.

Montreal Family Photographer

Lux Sunshine Sessions are back! Let’s take the studio outdoors and celebrate the great weather with a family photography session.

Here is a little taste of a family session that took place in Lachine. It was a bit of a cloudy day but the sun came out for a bit just before it started to rain. This is one of my favourite places to shoot and this is a family that I adore. This is my third session with them and they keep getting cuter :).

Montreal Maternity Photography Session

If you can’t decide between an outdoor or studio maternity photography session, we can do both! There is no additional fee to split your session between my studio and an outdoor space near by. Outdoor sessions can take place during any season, even in winter if you’re up for it.

Top 5 Tips for Making a Photo Session with Kids Easier

If you’re preparing for a photo session with your children, you may be feeling a bit apprehensive. Children aren’t always easy to deal with, which is why the below tips will definitely come in handy before your upcoming photo session.

1. Don’t make a huge deal out of it. If you’re stressed out and cranky, your kids will usually pick up on it and act accordingly. Their behavior will usually be better if you are relaxed and having fun. You may have to make some compromises to keep the peace such as letting your energetic daughter’s hair stay straight instead of curling it into because she won’t sit still. Focus on the big picture and don’t sweat the small stuff.

2. Make it fun. Let the kids have a couple “fun pictures” where they get to pick their own pose or props. You get to keep the more serious photos while they get to keep their silly photos. This way everyone wins. If you are struggling to get your kids to sit still, turn the photo session into a game. Simon Says usually works like a charm.

3. Be prepared. If you’re going to be out for several hours, ensure that your children are well rested and have had their nap. Bringing some snacks and activities along is also a great idea. If you are having your own photos taken too then you might want to bring a babysitter or family member along to watch the kids. If you happen to be shooting in a remote location, you never know when you might need something like bug spray, tissues or a first aid kit so bring that along too.

4. Be patient. Save your sanity by trying not to control the photo session too much. Sometimes the best photos come from kids just doing their own thing. Work with your photographer and your photos will look fantastic.

5. Have a chat. Get your children talking to both you and the photographer about topics such as school or their favorite songs. This allows them to feel more comfortable around your photographer and will also give your photographer a chance to capture a few candid and cute expressions.
