Session Details

Determine how long you want me to spend with you and choose one of the options below. Both Collections include all high-resolution digital files with a print release for personal use. A $250 reservation fee and signed agreement is required to secure your preferred session date in my calendar. Additional shooting time is also available. Please contact me for extended family sessions or events.

— At the core, I’m a natural storyteller and believe wholeheartedly that the collection of photographs I make become more valuable over time. To read more about my philosophy and see samples of my work, please visit the Session Information and/or the Frequently Asked Questions page.

IN-HOME + OUTDOOR ADVENTURE — Photo shoots take place where everyone will be most comfortable; this is usually at your home and/or another favourite location of your choice (ie. your family cottage). If you prefer exploring familiar surroundings in the great outdoors, we can go on an ‘adventure walk’, play in the snow or head to the beach.

HAVE CAMERA, WILL TRAVEL — Not in the Ottawa / Arnprior / Renfrew / Pembroke area? No problem. Get in touch to inquire about travel fees.

“My family has had the opportunity to work with Gemma twice in the past year, both times the experience was exceptional! Gemma worked with us so easily and thoughtfully, the experience was a total pleasure from start to finish! We loved Gemma’s candid approach, she catches the sweetest moments and our photographs are such treasures now! Some of the images Gemma captured were such unexpected surprises, that there were tears looking through the proofs the first time! I can’t recommend Gemma enough, our photos are intimate, thoughtful, real moments forever captured on film now, I can’t wait until the next time!”
