Disclaimer:

Mini sessions are in no way guaranteed. You are given 15 mins with Lisa only. 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. Please also note anyone saying, “oh but you can just photoshop that right?” will get a pinch :D

Mini session can run a little behind at times, if you are waiting for your session to start. Yes these are quick session times, but as you can imagine with up to 24 slots in a day, and between 24-72 kids, babies and toddlers coming and going the unexpected can and does happen. Please be patient and do not interrupt the current session. We are all moms, dads, and guardians, we all know that things happen. Please allot at least an extra 30 mins before you need to be anywhere else after your session time. Thank-you for your understanding.

Lisa Marie’s personal tips for successful sessions with kids!

A few days leading up to the session practice taking photos with your kids! But DO NOT make it a chore. Just have FUN with it. Show them the photos immediately. DO NOT make them pose. DO NOT make them say CHEESE. Encourage silly faces and sad faces and PLAY. BE IN THE PHOTOS with them and be silly!!! If you can, have the camera or your phone on mirror so your kids, babies and toddlers can see themselves in the frame.

YES- You can bring treats and bribes for children to earn during any portrait session. (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 and when EARNED! DO NOT give your children anything that you can not take away from them. Please just keep this in mind when you are booking mini sessions. All finished photos will receive editing, but not retouching or extreme measures such as “swapping heads” ;), please make sure your kids are TATTOO free (big pet peeve lol)

XO Lisa Marie & Co.

lisa-marie-photography-2017-9610Please note that our turn around time is approximately 2-3 weeks but sometimes longer if we are very busy or there is unforeseen cicomstances. Holiday themes are always delivered prior to the holiday but not guarenteed. Lisa is full time shooting several days a week, and unlike some other companies, each image is edited very carefully by Lisa Marie. This does take time, so if you are unable to accept the turn around times, then its best you let us know if there is a special circumstance so we can let you know if we can get them to you sooner. This may mean that you need to find another photographer, but we will do our best to accommodate you :)*

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.. 

capesign

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.

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!

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.

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…

 

lisa-marie-photography-2017-0175

The handsome little boy was very pleased to be having sweet Spring tea with a wee Spring princess :)

Please also note anyone saying, “oh but you can just photoshop that right?” will get a pinch :D

Mini session can run a little behind at times, if you are waiting for your session to start. Yes these are quick session times, but as you can imagine with up to 24 slots in a day, and between 24-72 kids, babies and toddlers coming and going the unexpected can and does happen. Please be patient and do not interrupt the current session. We are all moms, dads, and guardians, we all know that things happen. Please allot at least an extra 30 mins before you need to be anywhere else after your session time. Thank-you for your understanding.

Lisa Marie’s personal tips for successful sessions with kids! A few days leading up to the session practice taking photos with your kids! But DO NOT make it a chore. Just have FUN with it. Show them the photos immediately. DO NOT make them pose. DO NOT make them say CHEESE. Encourage silly faces and sad faces and PLAY. BE IN THE PHOTOS with them and be silly!!! If you can, have the camera or your phone on mirror so your kids, babies and toddlers can see themselves in the frame.

YES- You can bring treats and bribes for children to earn during any portrait session. (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 and when EARNED! DO NOT give your children anything that you can not take away from them. Please just keep this in mind when you are booking mini sessions. All finished photos will receive editing, but not retouching or extreme measures such as “swapping heads” ;), please make sure your kids are TATTOO free (big pet peeve lol)

Family Session at Stewart Farm House October By: Lisa Marie Photography

That can include just a kids sessions, maternity session, couples and families!

familyfallblog5

Family Session at Stewart Farm House October By: Lisa Marie Photography

 

 *Are you trying to decide if a mini session is what you want? Mini session vs Full Session? A Family Mini session is max 20 mins long, The dates, times and locations are predetermined. I tend to move quite quickly and have poses and spots close by, planned and in mind when you arrive. To make the most of our time together. Of course there is playing and naturalness to each session based on your family dynamic, and of course my own crazy awesome dynamic mixed in ;) But the mini session is perfect for those looking to update the wall with a couple photos or do that annual Christmas card. But with professional awesome-sauce photography by ME! This is also a great opportunity for those looking to try out Lisa Marie Photography on a budget :) You can expect to have approximatly 20+ images in a fully edited gallery to choose your 5 favourites with the option to purchase more if you can’t resist!

Full FALL family sessions are also available! Full sessions are 45-60 minutes long where you and I choose a date, time and location that work best for you and your family. These are much more relaxed and designed for your families needs. These are highly recommended for families who dont get regular annual photos, who may need a little more time to warm up, shy kiddos, larger families with busy kids who may need breaks, and families who would like to have more time and images for whatever reason to better reflect their own families style and uniqueness. You will receive approximately 50-100 finished images delivered where you get to choose 20 final select images in the comfort of your own home. With also the option to choose more. 

You can email bookings@lisamariephotography.ca to inquire more about Full Family/portrait sessions as well as days and times we have available this year.

In loving memory of an amazing client and friend who’s face will be greatly missed this year. xo

 

Starting this year in honour of an amazing friend who supported me since since I began this little company, and who like many of you have returned every year since you blessed me with the honour, and who I grew to love and admire, I will be donating $10 from each session to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. We all lost Tiffany this past August from breast cancer, but Tiffany’s team: Tiffany’s Sisters From Other Misters continues to run in her honour, and for all of us who are at risk, who love someone who may face or those of us who will face this devastating disease. You can click the link for more information and to learn how you can help.

What if it RAINS?? These sessions are rain or shine! This is BC, we adapt :) and the farm house is an excellent locations to shoot rain or shine, with several barns, and covered areas. Every year has worked out amazing, we have had a little rain, even some SNOW in the past and with them being mini sessions it seems to work awesome, I’m fast and move quickly so no-one gets too cold. Make sure to bring COATS for the kids even for in-between takes shots and umbrellas (if needed)!! Redwood Park has massive trees and is great even if its sprinkling, but in a heavy rain we will relocate but NOT CANCEL unless of emergency….

Its not your fault. You did your best. It seems like its what were suppose to do right?? I mean school photos are a right of passage!!

But something has happened to school photos the last decade. They have become these passport, digitally enhanced, and rather expensive ordeals where our children sent off in the morning pretty and perfect then they are filled in one by one so quickly, and though our teachers do the best they can, almost every year we are disappointed!

So for the 5th year now in a row, we are offering our super sweet classic, vintage back to school sessions so you can rest easy and mark these days that fly by.

Cost: $95 for each session slot. *SIBLING DEAL* you MAY add a sibling $25 each, up to 3 kids per session. If you have more than 3 kids please book 2 sessions and there will be no charged for your 4th child. (that’s right, buy 3, get 1 free! LOL (sorry could not help myself) If you have 4 or more kids you deserve a little break and a big hug of wine every day for a job well done! (this is for immediate SIBLINGS only)

 

EACH EXTRA SIBLING fee will add 1 extra photo.

lisa-marie-photography-2015-2644 lisa-marie-photography-2015-3010Disclaimer- “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!
