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 :)*

Santa Mini Sessions 2017!!

santablog8

ITS TRUE!!! SANTA IS BACK!!!

 

santablog-cry

 

 

 

AND This years NEW SET is a 3D Cozy Cabin and will look like this:

cozy cabin1

2017 Cozy Cabin Santa Set

 

cozycabin1

2017 Cozy Cabin Santa Set

 

Please read through the entire blog before emailing. It will help you know exactly what is included and what to expect!

Our annual Santa Mini sessions are BACK! Every child will have a mini session with Christmas Props, as well as time with Santa! These are not just photo sessions, they are an experience.

 

sanata1

 

Throw out your idea of the typical Santa visit though! No waiting in line and praying you get your kids on that big ole lap. We are not looking to replace tradition, but to enhance to it! We don’t pose your kiddos on Santa’s lap, and let him be the main event, we are focused on the kids 100%, their reactions, emotions and Santa is just an idea, and more of a “prop”.

 

santablog121

 

These sessions are honestly the most memorable mini sessions I have ever done, HANDS DOWN. There is an element to these that I did not anticipate when I started doing them 6 years ago :) Being quick and having tons of experience with small kids makes for an excellent mini session photographer. But you add a big guy in a red suit with a beard, WHOA…this takes on something entirely new. I have never been so emotionally excited and exhausted after an event. The pure magical and sometimes horrific reactions had me and my team on our toes!

 

sanata blog222

Magic Add On!

 

cozy cabin 2

2017 Cozy Cabin Santa Set

You can expect at least 5-10 choices without Santa and the same with Santa. Some galleries can have over 30 choices!

 

2017blogsanata

 

For this reason we added the “portrait” mini bonus in the beginning of the session with NO Santa to start!!

We do that so no matter what reaction your little ones have, you leave with some holiday magic :) *please note, it is not an option to just do Santa or the portrait session at a discount. If you are just looking for Holiday Mini’s with NO Santa, check out all the Holiday Mini Sessions

Kids only Hot Coco Mini’s HERE!

Family Holiday Mini’s HERE

Lisa Marie’s Tree Farm HERE

(You can ALSO book this new Cozy Cabin Set for FAMILY Mini’s

Dates for the FAMILY Cozy Cabin Set will be November 28th, 29th 30th AND December 2nd! (sorry no blog for that)

Cost is $185 for Family Mini’s. What can you expect?? ANYTHING!!!)

blogsd

That’s whats so different about these sessions. You really can’t predict most of the time what the reactions will be. With more time then just plopping your kid on some strangers lap, even kids who are a bit afraid sometimes can overcome that fear and pose with a scary 20 year old in a red suit ;)

And… sometimes, they are still a little nervous :)

 

sanatahudson

 

And that’s perfectly imperfect as well!

I have to admit, there is a special place in my heart for ALL of these reactions! No matter what way your kiddo reacts, you have the memory forever. And let me tell you as a mom of a 20 year old (who also plays our UN-intimidating Jolly Santa)…. THESE ones are PRICELESS!!!! (literally there are no limitations on what you can do with gold like these!)

santablog212

Magic Add on!

 

As I said, this is an experience!! One I look forward to sharing with you and your kids. OR TO SEND TO THE ELLEN SHOW!! :) You can choose to prep your kids and tell them what they are doing, or as most do, MAKE IT A SURPRISE!! You know you kids best. You may just be surprised as to how they react! I am looking forward to a couple of these kids above coming back this year. I can’t wait to see some of those fears turn into excitement :)

 

santacryingSTILL

 

 

It really does happen ;)

Fall Mini Sessions 2017

fall-mini-header-2016

I AM READY!!

FALL MINI SESSIONS ARE OPEN FOR BOOKING!!!

 

fall blog 1

Fall Mini 2016 at Stewart Farm House ©lisamariephotography.ca

 

These sessions are perfect for those who are looking for just a mini session and just need a quick update for the wall.

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

 

Family Mini Sample from 2016 Sessions at Stewart Farm House ©lisamariephotography.ca

Family Mini Sample from 2016 Sessions at Stewart Farm House ©lisamariephotography.ca

 

*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 7 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.
The dates have been set for the annual mini session event. This will be our 7th year, and sells out every year! I cant wait to see all my families again!

Who’s Included: Up to 5 immediate members. ($25 fee for extra members up to 6 members per session) Please book 2 back to back sessions if you have more family members. PETS?? Yes, but PLEASE remember you have a short time slot, I recommend bringing your little (or big) loved one and a FRIEND who can take your pet away once we get a few shots :)

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….

Worst Case scenario? If it DOES become unbearable, then you will receive EMAILS on the morning of your session! So please make sure to check your emails if the weather looks “iffy”.
What to wear: YES, this is the best time to start your shopping! Fall clothing is out in stores now. Pick a color pallet you want to work with and have some fun! Its ok to not be very “matchy”, but its also very appealing to take your pallet and find fun ways to blend your family together.

Check out this blog by Kate Lemon Photography! I love the colour pallets!

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.

Fallblog6*Please 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 :)*

Just say no to digitally enhanced, fake smiling, and rather expensive ordeals where our children sent off in the morning looking pretty and perfect, but from then to that stool they all file in and out of, and though our teachers do the best they can, almost every year we are disappointed!

So for the 6th 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.

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!

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!

Watermelon Mini’s 2017

To inquire about kids stylized mini sessions please email bookings@lisamariephotography.ca WE ARE currently taking names for a waiting lisa for Watermelon Mini's for August 29th from 4-8pm THIS WILL BE THE LAST DATE. Back to school mini's are now open for bookings as well :)

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 :)

 

 

Dates:

These will ONLY be happening ONE DAY ONLY!! August 16th from 2:30-7:30pm.

Price: $145

Sibling Add On: $25. This will include 1 extra final image.

 

 

What to expect:

Sessions are 20 minutes long. Kids will be eating watermelon, and I will be capturing it all, BOOM! Easy peasy!

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 :)

 

 

Attire:

We suggest that your ones stick with the basics. Keeping it playful and childlike. Think timeless summer styles. 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!

 

 

What you receive:

 

A full gallery of the best photos and your choice of a minimum of 5 professionally edited high resolution digital photos in an online downloadable gallery. All full resolution photos 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!You will have the option when speaking with Lisa to purchase more then 3 images. Prices will determine by how any you choose.

The pond is only a few inches deep where we shoot, so I dont have too many concerns ;) Parents are able to be within arms reach at all times. If one of the kids did jump in,its not the end of the world and I would most likely keep shooting anyway :)

It does give you more time and I dont mind squishing in friends and cousins together if time permits, so this summer if you book two sessions, back to back, you will get $50 ($25 each) off your session fee!

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!
