ontario PORTrAIT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR joyful families

Portrait Photography

Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big or small, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. 

My sessions are very relaxed and meant to be playful and fun so that I can capture what your family is like at this stage of life. I focus on capturing the emotions and relationships between each person in your family. So I will ask you to hug, snuggle, tickle and play together to get those genuine smiles and moments together. I tend to photograph a mix of portraits and candids. 

So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come.

“Working with Karina on both our maternity and newborn sessions was such a great experience for us!  We didn’t just love our photos but we had fun!! She made the sessions easy, comfortable and she was just so great to talk to! We left both experiences with huge smiles on our faces thinking what a wonderful, professional photographer and person she was with no doubt in our minds that the pictures would be equally as great, and they were!! We now have beautiful pictures to remember these milestones.”

Over the past 5 year we have had the amazing opportunity to partner with Karina as she has captured our growing family. Karina's perspective is one that results in gorgeously natural and timeless photos. Aside from being wildly talented, she's incredibly patient and kind, which makes for a positive photography experience.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Karina visit our home for our newborn session. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera as she guided us in different shots with such skill and joy. It’s evident that Karina loves to capture the natural moments of families Her style is absolutely beautiful and we are so grateful for all the precious moments that she captured for us that will last a lifetime. Thanks so much Karina, we look forward to more shoots in the future as our family grows!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

no.

NEXT QUESTION

If the weather is not looking great then we can definitely reschedule for a better day. This can even apply to indoor newborn sessions as I heavily depend on natural light. 

what do we do if it rains?

NEXT QUESTION

The sooner the better! Most of my sessions in spring to fall are booked on on weekday evenings. My weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly, so the sooner you reach out to me, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  
To reserve your date, I'll need a contract signed as well as a deposit. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?

NEXT QUESTION


I have put together an  outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family! Once you have your session booked then I will share all the tips!

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

NEXT QUESTION

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. I take photos for a living and I even feel like a deer in the headlights when in front of the camera. 
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and I coach you through images, I think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. I am well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones. 

WE'RE AWKWARD AND MY KIDS DON'T SIT STILL.

NEXT QUESTION

Within a four weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes.
