Day In The Life
Imagine being able to go back and re-live a day in your childhood with your parents. …
To see the house you lived in, remember the laughter, and feel that love again.
Let’s create that for your children.
Let’s capture your kids at play.
Let’s witness how unapologetically honest they are.
Free and joyful.
… Or pouting while stomping like a mad squirrel.
How they dissolve into giggles, cackling at their jokes (which make no sense, but you can’t help laughing).
Watch them get jump-up-and-down-excited that daddy’s home.
See their quieter moments, sinking into slumber, gathered in your arms and softly snoring.
Those are the memories you will treasure.
It’s those all-too-fleeting moments that I am here to catch.
Let’s take these precious memories and make them tangible.
Imagine your child as a grown adult. Now she is the parent.
She opens your family album to show her curious child what it was like when mommy was little…
Professional quality family photographs are a lifetime investment. The images and albums I provide allow you to revisit your family’s story over and over again.
My Heirloom albums are true to colour and will stand the test of time, so that you can proudly pass them on to the next generation. There is simply no comparison when it comes to these amazing albums.
The digital slideshow gives you a fantastic way to view and share your images both in your home and online.
Families each have their own special story to tell; there is love, and there are also little moments that highlight each day, then fade into the next. Moments of excitement, hilarity, tears and joy that are easily forgotten as your day flies by. I am there to naturally capture these moments for you, helping you to retell the story of your family for years to come.
If you are reading this, then you are one step closer to having your Day In The Life session! I cover families in Calgary, mainly, but can travel to surrounding areas as well. Day In The Life sessions are ALL-INCLUSIVE: i.e.: they include the FULL SET of artist-selected high resolution digital files (100+) with unlimited personal printing license, a beautiful slideshow set to music, plus an archival Heirloom album that will stand the test of time.
THE BOOKING PROCESS
When you make the decision to book your Day In The Life session in, you can either click the ‘contact me’ link at the bottom of the page, or give me a call at 403.464.6333. My name’s Alison, by the way. We’ll then have a discussion about your awesome family & some of your unique quirks and dynamics, plus I’ll send you a quick questionnaire that helps me know you even better.
YOUR FAMILY SESSION
Like I mentioned, my sessions are pretty casual and relaxed. Nothing is forced or posed. Before these sessions, most people have concerns about how to ‘act natural’, but you will find that this quickly becomes a non-issue, especially with this full day session. The best photographs are made when people are able to relax – nothing gets you there faster than having to just deal with your kids and forget that there’s even a camera there. A full day will yield a wide range of moments, including the chaos, sweet & quiet moments, tantrums, you name it. That’s why it’s the best!
AFTER YOUR SESSION
We may part ways after your session, but the fun is just beginning. I treat your family’s photographs like my own. I take the time to carefully select and edit the photographs that will best tell the story of your family. About 4-6 weeks later, we will meet for your Reveal & Order session, where you will see your slideshow and all of the images for the first time. We will confirm the details of your included Heirloom album and you will have a chance to add Wall Art, desk prints, or gift albums to your order.
WHAT ABOUT THE PRICING?
If you are ready to capture pure & authentic family life, you’ve come to the right place. My Day In The Life sessions are 12+ hours (from the time they wake until your little ones go down to sleep). This ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGE is $3500 +gst. I like to help my families by breaking up these payments. You can secure your date with a $500 deposit. One week prior to your session, the next $1500 is due. Your remaining $1500 will be due at the Reveal & Order Session.
Hey, I'm Alison! I document real family life for Calgary families. If you love your family, your life, but hate the idea of fake family photos, then we should definitely talk:) My families are treated to a totally laid-back experience and I professionally finish your family photographs for you.
You will be happy & stress-free, knowing that you've got your family's memories covered.
