Disclaimer- Mini sessions are in no way guaranteed. In a perfect world, this would run perfectly on time, every time and everyones children will be well, happy and do everything we ask of them! But this is not always the case now is it! Not even with your kids right ;) Lisa makes every effort to work with your family and kids, but she can not be responsible for members who are not cooperating/smiling for photos, this includes fussy babies, toddlers who will not pose, teens who are stinky and miserable husbands (bring treats and bribes, the husbands love fruit snacks too!)

PLEASE DO NOT give your kids “treats and bribes” prior to the session, these are magic weapons and to be used when necessary!

DO NOT bring anything with your children that you can NOT take away. If you do not want “Blankie”, or “su-su” or iPads, etc in the photos, then bringing them and allowing them to have them right up to walking in and seeing me and yanking them away, is not a great plan. Bringing things to keep them busy is a great idea, but special comfort items should be avoided, unless you are ok with them in the photos.

You can help make your session more successful by prepping your children before even leaving the house :) For older children, use a point/reward system to earn something awesome after and I can keep that going in the session. For younger children, keep them distracted and happy as that is what my strategy is in the sessions well! (for older kids like mine, they just do what they are told now or else!! lol

You have a lot of power to help in this session way before seeing me! If you would like some more tips, please feel free to ask when you are booking and I am happy to give you a call!

Please just keep this in mind as well as REALITY when you are booking mini sessions. All of the photos here are real kids in a real session, just like yours. But not all kids will do exactly the same thing. I do not force poses or have expectations when any session starts. I work with the children who are in front of me, and adjust my agenda as we go through the session. I want every session to be successful and forcing kids to do anything usually downs work. So try come into every mini session with a open mind and respect who your children are. Take my lead, and try to have some fun with us :)

Please make sure your kids are TATTOO free (big pet peeve lol) Please also note anyone saying, “oh but you can just photoshop that right?” will get a pinch :D ALSO mini session can run a little, (ok, a lot sometimes) behind at times, if you are waiting for your session to start please be patient and do not interrupt the current session, we are all moms and dads and know sometimes other little ones need a little extra few mins at times and no one wants any kids to be left out. Please keep this in mind before you need to be anywhere else!

Thank-you for your understanding.

If your child is facing any challenges or concerns we should be aware of, if there is special needs that we can accommodate or any restrictions due to disabilities, please contact us with your concerns. We want to make sure that all kids who want to come out are welcomed with open arms!

The YUMMIEST mini session of the summer!

I absolutely LOVED doing these last year, so i have to squeeze these in. I LOVED everything about these. The colours, the kids, and ill tell you a secret, watermelon is my FAVORITE thing to eat…. having 10-15 left over watermelons isn’t the end of the world :)

Attire:

Little girls would be best in plain white bottom summer dresses or similar tops with shorts. Perhaps a muted/neutral print “sally”, “pillowcase”, linen, vintage dresses. Nothing too bright in colour or loud in print. And not “Dressy”. Little boys should think jeans, jean shorts, and PLAIN white or light coloured t-shirts, sleeveless or no shirt. Barefeet, sandals, SIMPLE sneakers, dirty feet and grass stained knees are OK ;) *Absolutely NO florescent colours, and I strongly recommend not to wear anything with logos or character clothing*

Kids will be encouraged to get sticky and eat, so a change of clothes and some wet wipes should be packed! We provide the mess, but you will be responsible for cleaning up your kiddo :)

*note*: Please make sure you bring an activity like colouring or a game, as well as water and some non-sticky (non-filling) snacks (we will provide that ;). Sessions can run behind from time to time, and we want you to be prepared :) Please read the disclaimer below for more ways to help prep for your session!

If one of the kids did jump in,its not the end of the world and I would most likely keep shooting anyway :)

Firefly Sessions

firefly header

Hello! I am so proud to introduce a new Summer magical summer session this year that I have been working on for a few months! I had the idea this spring and have been playing with different ways to bring these to you as a “mini” type session with out too many extra costs since we dont have actual fireflies! I think we have a perfect formula and are ready to share with you :)

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-6774

Dates:

You can book these firefly sessions ON DEMAND any week day evening between 3pm-7pm from now to September :) 

OR Come to one of the MINI SESSION DATES HERE: August 13th at Red Wood Park 17900 20 Avenue, Surrey from 3-7pm OR August 15th in South Surrey 3136 McBride Ave, Surrey from 4-8pm

Price:

Mini Session Dates are $145

On Demand Dates are $175

Sibling Add On: $55. (Due to the nature of these magical images, sibling fee’s are set more then usual. Each photo will require several compositions, and the more people IN the photos, the more needed.) This will include 1 extra final image.

lisa-marie-photography-2017-5504

What to expect:

Sessions are 20-30  minutes long. Depending on which location you choose, there will be some different props, but ultimately lots of cute firefly fun :) Kids will be posed (best as can! lol) and interacting with the props. We try to make it lots of fun and play games so they dont aways realize they are posing ;) *This session will requite parent participation*. I will need one parent to help hold a little light for some of the poses. In order to create some the magic, and effects of a darker environment, we will need you to help! I find your little ones are more comfortable with you holding the light at close proximity and I will show you how :)

Please note if you do arrive early to be respectful of the clients in session. Kids can be distracted quite easily by on lookers and other children. So a mindful distance is appreciated :)

Disclaimer- Mini sessions are in no way guaranteed. In a perfect world, this would run perfectly on time, every time and everyones children will be well, happy and do everything we ask of them! But this is not always the case now is it! Not even with your kids right ;)  Lisa makes every effort to work with your family and kids, but she can not be responsible for members who are not cooperating/smiling for photos, this includes fussy babies, toddlers who will not pose, teens who are stinky and miserable husbands (bring treats and bribes, the husbands love fruit snacks too!)

PLEASE DO NOT give your kids “treats and bribes” prior to the session, these are magic weapons and to be used when necessary!

DO NOT bring anything with your children that you can NOT take away. If you do not want “Blankie”, or “su-su” or iPads, etc in the photos, then bringing them and allowing them to have them right up to walking in and seeing me and yanking them away, is not a great plan. Bringing things to keep them busy is a great idea, but special comfort items should be avoided, unless you are ok with them in the photos.

You can help make your session more successful by prepping your children before even leaving the house :) For older children, use a point/reward system to earn something awesome after and I can keep that going in the session. For younger children, keep them distracted and happy as that is what my strategy is in the sessions well! (for older kids like mine, they just do what they are told now or else!! lol

You have a lot of power to help in this session way before seeing me! If you would like some more tips, please feel free to ask when you are booking and I am happy to give you a call!

Please just keep this in mind as well as REALITY when you are booking mini sessions. All of the photos here are real kids in a real session, just like yours. But not all kids will do exactly the same thing. I do not force poses or have expectations when any session starts. I work with the children who are in front of me, and adjust my agenda as we go through the session. I want every session to be successful and forcing kids to do anything usually downs work. So try come into every mini session with a open mind and respect who your children are. Take my lead, and try to have some fun with us :) 

 

Please make sure your kids are TATTOO free (big pet peeve lol) Please also note anyone saying, “oh but you can just photoshop that right?” will get a pinch :D ALSO mini session can run a little, (ok, a lot sometimes) behind at times, if you are waiting for your session to start please be patient and do not interrupt the current session, we are all moms and dads and know sometimes other little ones need a little extra few mins at times and no one wants any kids to be left out. Please keep this in mind before you need to be anywhere else!

Thank-you for your understanding.
If your child is facing any challenges or concerns we should be aware of, if there is special needs that we can accommodate or any restrictions due to disabilities, please contact us with your concerns. We want to make sure that all kids who want to come out are welcomed with open arms!

Attire!!: YES, I have CAPES and MASKS! I have red capes, and Pink capes, and a few black ones. You are welcome to bring your own :) Super hero costumes are not needed. We have some to use as props, but we are not aiming to make this about those heroes. We are aiming to capture YOUR hero. Kids are welcome to wear their favorite costume for a few photos as well. Please keep in mind, this is not halloween. Its imagination time! Do not bring children IN costumes. We may have a harder time getting them out. We will save that for the end. Please put your kids in very simple attire. You can see in the sample shots here that the kids are wearing very basic clothing. Converse, sneakers, sandals, boots, Jean shorts, white tank tops are perfect. No logos, no loud prints.

Princess Dream Summer Photo Shoot

lisa-marie-photography-2017-3482

Its my pleasure to introduce to you my first Summer Session Event.

 

Lisa Marie’s Princess Dreams

princess montoge

One of a few special events that I am SO excited to offer my clients!

I have been waiting all year to put my vision together and see how these would turn out. I have seen many different kinds of princess sessions, and I wanted to do something different. Something special. Having 3 boys, I honestly had no idea that would love these as much as I do. I hope you and your little ladies will as well :)

princessblog2

These are not like my usually “mini” session events. This session is a bit longer, as we want the little girls to enjoy their time and feel like a real princess!

princessblog3

 

This special session is being offered a couple different ways. For those of you who can make it out. I will be setting up 2 Days this summer, where you can book a 30 minute session with me in our special little spot. A couple weeks ago I had a last minute cancelation and just happened to be close to some sweet little antique shops, so I’ve accidentally added a few new (ok old, yet gorgeous vintage) props and sets to our little princess palace. I have had a lot of fun creating this set for you all!

 

Dont worry! I have not forgotten about my super hero lovers!

lisa-marie-photography-2017-4615

I will be sending out the dates for those next week :)

princessblog4

 

Lovely little girls, antique vanity, lace, pearls, crowns, white satin gloves, and a bubble bath? Yup, way too cute for words!

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-4327

No, none of these sweet little girls are models, if you can believe it or not. Just little girls playing princess :)

lisa-marie-photography-2017-3490

Ok, ok, time to hook you up!

 

First we are offering these two days:

July 15th from 2pm-8:30pm 

July 30th From 2pm-8:30pm 

Sessions are 30 minutes long on these two special days per child. Please understands that these sessions are not meant for more then one child at a time. If you have more then one child, we will be offering a 50% discount on a second session.   Second child will recive the same amount of photos and we will be adding an extra 15 minutes. Each child will get their own time as well as a couple shots with her sister :)

Place to be: We have literally carved out a special little spot in South Surrey. Address and directions will be sent after payment is made.

Arrival Time: Please arrive only 5-10 mins prior to your shoot time given booking. Late arrivals will cut into your session time. Please note if you do arrive early to be respectful of the clients in session. Kids can be distracted quite easily by on lookers and other children. So a mindful distance is appreciated :)

Session time: 30 mins

Cost One child: $195.00 (30 minutes 10 images) – Two children: $292.50 (45 minutes and 20 images) Three children: $390.00 (60 Minutes 30 images) – Four children: FREE (becasue you deserve that! includes all the same as 3rd package)

Attire: We suggest that your little princess arrives in simple attire such as a cute pair of shorts and tank top. Please note WE ARE NOT PROVIDING GOWNS for each little girl. However we do have the full pink tutus you see above as well as some cream lace dresses in various sizes. You are welcome to bring any gown you wish, or none at all. These are focused on the “behind the scene” of princess life. We have gowns that we use for props, but they are not allowed to be worn. We are not promoting a “disney themed” session, but realize that your little princess may want to have her photos in her favorite little gown and that is totally ok with us :)

What do you get?? A full gallery of the best photos and your choice of a minimum of 10 professionally edited high resolution digital photos in an online downloadable gallery. All full resolution photos you choose are delivered via email for instant download, sharing options on all social media sites, custom links for easy emailing, affordable printing options, and safe online storage for up to 10 years, as well as a free app for your smart phone where you can show off your gallery anywhere you are!

Age Recommendation: Recommended sitting  to 12.

For those of you who have more then one child, please email us with your children’s ages and we can design a package for you.

The SECOND option we are offering is a ON DEMAND Princess Dreams Session

I am aware that summer is busy, and that these dates may not work for everyone. Or that some may want some extra time and attention.

ON DEMAND sessions are when we come out just for your little princess. We will set up her little palace, either at our location, or one we mutually agree upon. We will spend an hour playing dress up and princess’s with your little sweetie making it all about her.

Please send us any questions you have. We would love to chat and help design this special session with you.

The cost of this session is $465.00.

This session includes a full gallery of the best photos and your choice of a minimum of 20 professionally edited high resolution digital photos in an online downloadable gallery. All full resolution photos you choose are delivered via email for instant download, sharing options on all social media sites, custom links for easy emailing, affordable printing options, and safe online storage for up to 10 years, as well as a free app for your smart phone where you can show off your gallery anywhere you are!

Me and My Daddy Sessions 2017

daddy and me blog header

Just like the name of this blog says, this session is for kids of all ages and their DADS!

superherophoto

 

Thats true Dad’s! This session is all about you!

(Note* Photos come in colour too. I was trying to be dramatic ;P)

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-2-3

 

My goal this year is to really reach out to you MEN. All of you who have children. Men who still have their dads around!

 

Bring grandpa too!!

Bring grandpa too!!

 

Every year we get dozens of woman booking Mommy and Me sessions. Single moms, married mom. Moms who bring out their sisters and daughters and mothers. Ive had 4 generations of woman and kids at these sessions.

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-7425

But the dads are in no way taking this as seriously! I know that your busy.

lisa-marie-photography-2017-1026

I know you hate getting your photo taken without a beer or fish in your hand.

Grab that baby girl and try flowers instead!

Grab that baby girl and try flowers instead!

 

I know that you probably feel like you take enough photos right? Selfies? etc.. You are in a few photos with your kids right??

daddyandmeblog1

Selfies are great in a pinch. But your phone won’t freeze giggles like these. (mostly due to slow shutter speeds, but also because how will you tickle those bellies and hold the phone! See? You need me! :D)

 

No, no, no. This will not DO!

As a Daddies girl myself…. I can tell you hands down, that my photos with my dad are SO important to me.

Like YOU are so important to your kids. Its time to start making these moments a priority.

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-2432

lisa-marie-photography-2017-1526

There is 5 important kinds of dynamics in a family. There is the entire family together. There is the kids alone. The parents alone, and then Mom n’ kids and Dad n’ kids…

daddyandmeblog8

Each dynamic when broken down is SO unique. Moms, you need to hook the men up in your life and get them in. Grab grandpa and uncles too. This is an amazing opportunity (excuse) to grab some memories that not many get to.

daddyblog7

Only an uncle can get this face!

To all you single dads out there….. (GUESS WHAT???  This is allowed!)

daddyblog11

You dont need a woman to hook you up! You are allowed to book a photographer and get some professional photos done with your kids too! Of course you can!

lisa-marie-photography-2017-4688-2

Families change. Yes thats true.

But that does not make them any less important.

No matter what your situation is.

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0449-2

There are MANY incredible dads who support, care for, and share the responsibility in raising their kids, even single dads who do it all on their own for many different reasons. Dads who are busting their…. buns ;) being mom and dad. There is amazing step dads, and uncles helping to raise nieces and nephews. Grandpas who are still chasing 2 year olds and being amazing roll models.

©lisamariephotography.ca Sun set sessions are on sale right now (just till Sept 15th!) , very few openings left! email: bookings@lisamariephotography.ca

 

Yet for some reasons in all my 6 years being a family photographer,

I have never once had a single dad ever call and book a family session for himself and his kids. Not one time.

lisa-marie-photography-2017-9898-2

Moms do! Married Moms will book their husbands and boyfriends in for Daddy and Me sessions without them even knowing, and send the Dads on their way to me…because they KNOW how special you are to your kids. This is a wake up call guys!

lisa-marie-photography-2017-4190-2

Do you think this guy knows how much he means to that little dude?

The woman book you in becasue they know how much everyone in your family will cherish those images forever…

I’ve even had girlfriends book sessions for their boyfriends and his kids… (#truestory)

But NOT ONE Dad has ever arranged a session for him and his kids on his own. WHY??

lisa-marie-photography-2017-9851

Maybe because of this? (teehee)

THIS STOPS NOW.

I am officially challenging all you single DADS.

Pull up those big boy pants and lets DO THIS!!! I promise you, its not as scary as it seems! You won’t be alone! This is where you get to show up and I do the work!

As I did with the Single Moms, I am offering all Single Dads a 10% off discount. So take advantage of this, and grab those kiddies and let me show you, we got this!

daddyandmeBLOG123

I have spread the sessions over two weekends as I did with the Mommy and Me sessions as I know that alternating weekends happen, so hopefully this works! If you can’t make these dates work, please ask Jennifer at bookings@lisamariephotography.ca about booking a a ‘la cart Daddy ‘n Me for the month of June on a time that works for you. It will cost a little more, but it will be worth it!

When: June 10th & 11th, 17th and Fathers Day the 18th. I have opened up Fathers Day for a few hours in hopes some of you will get your families together and come see me! 

Place to be: We are heading to the Crescent Beach Area. Exact Location will be sent with directions a week prior to your session :)

South Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

Arrival Time: Please arrive only 5-10 mins prior to your shoot time given booking. Late arrivals will cut into your session time. Please note if you do arrive early to be respectful of the clients in session. Kids can be distracted quite easily by on lookers and other children. So a mindful distance is appreciated :)

Session time: 20 mins

Cost $185.00 

Are you a single Super Single Hero? I mean Dad?

I’d like to give a shout out to all my Single Fathers!! Single Dads will receive a 10% discount. Please let Jennifer know when booking!

This is where you can help support another BRO! If you know a single Dad who can’t not afford a session with his kids, I would love to help you sponsor this RAD DUDE! When you are booking, let us know you would like to sponsor another dope Dad, and we will share the cost with you! And if you send us their information we can send them a lovely gift card with a message from you explaining that you have gifted them this session and we can take care of booking them in!

This is on an honour system. No one will have to prove income or single hood. So I ask that when you are booking two sessions for you and your solo daddio, please consider that sessions are limited, and this is not Buy 1, get 1 1/2 off. This is you and I giving a gift. Being a single parent myself, I also have kids who need shoes too, and each session that I gift with you is one session less then I can take on.

Sessions Include: A full viewing gallery of the best photos and your choice of 7 edited images (more images available for purchase when viewing gallery is sent) delivered High Res, via downloadable gallery to your email address, all images are focusing on Dads/Grandfather/children-immediate families only please. Groups of up to 5 members per session. If you are planning to get uncles and cousins involved please inquire as to how you may book back to back sessions. *note, these are NOT Family sessions…. Dad’s only please :)*

 

WAIT, there is MORE??? Heck yeah there is!! I think we can all agree that..

Age Recommendation: Recommended sitting to 18 Years or more! If a sibling is able to hold a younger baby up that’s ok! I do have baskets to help prop the new little ones who need help, just note there is less poses we can do with a baby who can not sit up.

This is a great session to include or invite your kids best friends!!

 

Book with a Friend BONUS!!  We often get asked to book cousins and friends together or back to back sessions. And this is something we love accommodating! It does give you more time and I dont mind squishing in friends and cousins together if time permits, so this spring if you book two sessions, back to back, you will get $50 ($25 each) off your session fee!

This will include up to 4 kids in total. That is a $100 savings. If there is more then 2 children per session then the added sibling fee will apply.

Booking Info: To book please email bookings@lisamariephotography.ca

Attire: This is SPRING/SUMMER bright! OR Flowing and whimsical, floral, FUN!! Absolutely no NEON/florescent tops please. These effect skin tone when the light bounces off of it!

Our Flower Shop Mini session (coming soon) always has the best fresh flowers donated by Peace Arch Nursery! I am so happy to be supported by local growers right here in our amazing city. They haves over 35 acres of land in the Greater Vancouver area. Not only to I love them, but so does most of ALL local retailers including Costco!! So save a few bucks and go support the actual local buisness who grows those amazing flowers here!! Give that money to your neighbours and not the big box retailers! All bedding plants and hanging baskets are grown locally by them! They have friendly and knowledgeable staff to assist you every step of the way. Unlike other nurseries I have been to Peace Arch staff are there ready to help you select the right plants for your garden, providing you with the right tools and advice to maintain a thriving garden!

They even go as far as LOADING YOUR PURCHASES!! I love how they look after the little things :) Like supporting YOU local moms!

Are you a single Super Hero? I mean Mom?

I’d like to give a shout out to all my Single Mommas!! Single Moms will receive a 10% discount. Please let Jennifer know when booking! If you know a single mom who can’t not afford a session with her kids, I would love to help you sponsor this rad lady! When you are booking, let us know you would like to sponsor another deserving mom, and we will share the cost with you! And if you send us their information we can send them a lovely gift card with a message from you explaining that you have gifted them this session and we can take care of booking them in! This is on an honour system. No one will have to prove income or single hood. So I ask that when you are booking two sessions for you and your single momma, please consider that sessions are limited, and this is not Buy 1, get 1 1/2 off. This is you and I giving a gift. Being a single mom myself, I also have kids who need shoes too, and each session that I gift with you is one session less then I can take on…. wait, maybe someone should buy me one!! :P

WAIT, there is MORE???

NEW THIS YEAR: Sewful Designs Is making us matching Mommy and Me pink Tutus! We will have available one full length flowing Mommy Tutu, and 3 child sized tutus to have a little fun with! Possibly a few fun props and some tea party fun! If you would like to try a tutu, please let us know when your booking! We will allot a few extra minutes to change. You are responsible to supply tops. I suggest simple white tank tops for Mommy and Kids. And little white/pink/light coloured shorts. I cut off old leggings sometimes :) MOMS!! Dont be SHY! Have some FUN!! What could it hurt???

Once upon a time, there lived a wee little Spring Princess, in a wee little spring garden that she loved with her big gient heart.

 

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0139

And one fine day, a handsome little boy with his own spring garden, brought over a gift to share!

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0157

I think the wee little Spring Princess, was delighted by this surprise!

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0162

She thanked the handsome little boy and accepted this special Spring gift!!

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0152

“What a lovely Spring day! Wont you join me for some sweet Spring tea?” She said in her sweetest little wee voice…

 

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0179

Holding her wee spring tea pot, she she poured her sweet spring tea…

Disclaimer- “Mini Sessions” are in no way guaranteed. Parents are under order to come with a realistic attitude! Kids are kids. And these are “mini” sessions. Lisa makes every effort to work with your family and kids, but she can not be responsible for members who are over come with smiles and giggles…. as well as those who (might) not cooperate/smilie for photos. This includes fussy babies, toddlers who will not pose, teens who are stinky and miserable husbands ;) (bring treats and bribes, the husbands love fruit snacks too!) Also be prepared for a LOT of laughing and obnoxious silly faces, Lisa has no shame! PLEASE DO NOT give your kids “treats and bribes” prior to the session, these are magic weapons and to be used when necessary! Please just keep this in mind when you are booking mini sessions. I have never had a mini session that was not complete and don’t plan on it now, but things can happen :)

All finished photos will receive editing, but not retouching or extreme measures such as “swapping heads” and removing large skin issues ;), please make sure your kids are TATTOO free (big pet peeve lol) Please also note anyone saying, “oh but you can just photoshop that right?” will get a pinch in the patootie :D

ALSO mini session can run a little behind at times, if you are waiting for your session to start please be patient and do not interrupt the current session, we are all moms and dads and know sometimes other little ones need a little extra few mins at times and no one wants any kids to be left out. Thank-you for your understanding.

If your child is facing any challenges or concerns we should be aware of, if there is special needs that we can accommodate or any restrictions due to disabilities, please contact us with your concerns. We want to make sure that all kids who want to come out are welcomed with open arms!
