Family Portraits for Toronto's Loveliest Families

by Storey Wilkins

Three generation family portrait Creemore Family portraits are not just photographs, they are acts of love. There is no better way to cherish the present and remember the past.

I Photograph LOVE for a Living

As a mother, I understand just how much you love your family, and how important it is to select the best professional photographer you can to capture that love in photographs.

Whether you are celebrating an occasion or celebrating the moments in between, it would be my honour to photograph your family. Milestones and moments that deserve to be documented include:

  • Your Pregnancy (maternity)
  • Welcoming your Newborn
  • When your Baby is 6-8 Months Old
  • As your Toddler begins to Walk
  • A Birthday (at any age)
  • Your Immediate Family
  • Your Multi-Generation Family
  • ...and of course all the beautiful average days in between.

A Recipe for Success

My efficient and fun 90 minute lifestyle portrait sessions have three parts (30 minutes each):

  • Part One: Great Group Portraits (all of you together smiling, looking relaxed and happy in flattering positions)

  • Part Two: Timeless Moments (games, laughs, reading, cuddling, walking, and other fun activities and out takes that capture the essence of your family spirit)

  • Part Three: Adorable Portraits of the Kids (where you get to sit back and watch as I capture priceless expressions and nuances of each of your kids).

The Art of Storytelling

Any photographer should be able to produce one cute photo of your child, but can they perform well enough to exceed your expectations in your home environment and under your particular circumstances? Can they tell your story?

To every portrait session I bring:

  • 18 years of experience photographing weddings (long considered one of the most challenging forms of photography),
  • The patience and understanding of a mom, and
  • The 100% guarantee that you will love your photographs.

My goal is to give you a collection of images that will make you so happy you will weep. I look forward to creating a wonderful set of photographs for you.

2020 Family Portrait Services

Locations

I proudly serve every neighbourhood across the Greater Toronto Area. I am happy to travel to you wherever you are. In the summer months I regularly travel to Muskoka, Georgian Bay, The City of the Kawarthas and Haliburton to photograph families enjoying time together at the cottage.

Process

My goal is to create beautiful photographs that your family will treasure every passing year. From the very first phone call, to the day your finished artwork is delivered and installed in your home, I will guide you every step of the way.

Step 1 The Pre-Game Chat

A portrait is about more than simply capturing your likeness. That is why I would like to chat with you by phone beforehand to get a sense of your desires and concerns. Together we will create a session plan, where we discuss what to wear, the location for the session, display ideas for your home, and the pricing.

Step 2 Game Day! Your Portrait Session

We will arrange to hold your session in your home or cottage, or a beautiful park nearby. Using our easy three part portrait process, you can relax and enjoy spending time with your family while I go about arranging and posing, lighting and finessing, and engaging the kids in play so that the 90 minutes will fly by.

Step 3 The Ordering Appointment

This can be done at your home or by video conference about a week after the session. This will be a great opportunity to review the images together so that I can help you select your favourites and prepare a plan for printing, framing and hanging them in the perfect places around your home. It will be an effortless and enjoyable appointment.

Step 4 Delivery & Installation

The most exciting part of your portrait experience is the arrival of your new artwork! I will deliver everything to your home and if you do not have a professional installer, I will be happy to install it for you. Then I will wish you well and look forward to hearing from you for your next special occasion or milestone.
