Oakville Family Photographer

Making art from real people since 2010

With beautiful lake views, quiet parks, and a quaint downtown, Oakville is the perfect spot for family portraits. Your family photoshoot can take place on location, or in the colder months we'll use a cozy studio or your home to create family portraits you'll treasure for a lifetime.

A bespoke photography experience that is designed to take the pressure off of busy moms and create beautiful, heirloom artwork.

NATURAL, OUTDOOR FAMILY PHOTOS IN OAKVILLE

Oakville's parks are some of the best locations to capture portraits of families there are so many beautiful ones to choose from. Whether you prefer lakefront views or woodland trails, you can find the perfect backdrop for timeless portraits while letting your kids get their wiggles out too.

For waterside locations, Lakeside Park and Bronte Bluffs Park are two of my favorites. If you're looking for a spot closer to the uptown core, then the woodsy trails of Lion's Valley Park are another great option.

WINTER LOCATIONS IN OAKVILLE FOR FAMILY PORTRAITS

Even though winters in Oakville are FREEZING, that doesn't mean you have to wait til spring for your family portraits. We can have your family photos at a beautiful local photo studio so you and your kids can feel comfortable and relax.

A studio is a great option if you'd like a more elegant, minimal setting for your family photoshoot, but sometimes young children feel more comfortable at their own home. In that case, we can discuss the lighting and decor of your home and see if that would be the right fit for the family photos you're hoping for.

Once you've reserved your session, we'll have a planning appointment where I'll style you and your family's outfits. You'll have the option to use pieces from my client wardrobe or from your own closet. We'll plan out the location for our shoot as well as your artwork preferences.

I'll commission one of my favorite hair and makeup artists to come to your home and get you glowing! Then we'll have a relaxed, fun photo session where you'll never have to wonder about what to do with your hands.

After your session, we'll meet again so you can see your beautiful images for the first time. I'll help you choose which products and framed prints are right for your home and we can even design a gallery wall for you during our meeting.

About 6 to 10 weeks later, your beautiful artwork will be complete, ready to be picked up and live it's best life being enjoyed in your home.

Hi! I'm Emily.

Your Family Photo Fairy Godmother

I'm a professional family photographer serving Oakville and the communities in Southern Ontario. As a mom of three boys (Yes, all boys. You read that right.), I really have a heart for making sure mamas get in the photos with their family.

We're always so busy making sure everyone else is taken care of and ready for photos, that we barely have any energy left for a shower! That's why I've crafted my business to help YOU feel cared for and beautiful.

I want to be the photographer for you that I wish I had when my guys were little, I was sleep deprived and had no idea what to wear. So instead of having a photoshoot add stress, I want your whole experience to be delightful, relaxing and so special.
