Where do the sessions take place? Do you have a studio?

I am a natural light photographer, which means that I take certain types of sessions at a certain time of day.

Because of this, I only schedule family sessions in the hours after sunrise before noon and just before sunset to make sure to capture that beautiful golden light.

I try to avoid shooting between 12pm to 5 pm because the light at these times creates harsh shadows on faces. In between the golden light hours, I schedule newborns and baby sessions. Late mornings and early afternoons are the best times for these session because they provide great indirect light through my studio windows.

I am currently working on an at home studio and I am hoping to have that up and running soon!

Family sessions will not take place in my studio, it is reserved for newborns and babies only.

What happens if the weather doesn't cooperate?

In the event of inclement weather, we may have to reschedule your session for another date. I will try my best to fit you in as soon as possible, but it may delay our session a week or so.

What payment methods do you accept?

I accept cash, cheque, visa and interect e-transfers. A deposit of $100 is required at the time of booking in order to confirm and hold the date of the session, the remaining will be due the time of the session.

Do I get the digital files?

YES! These images are yours and I'm pleased to provide you will all of your digital files!

Please do not enter the photographs into any contests or publications without the permission of On the Mantle Photography.

Do we get every image you take?

No, you shouldn't have to deal with the stress of going through every single photo (good and bad!). I do not allow the extra photographs to be seen as they are typically duplicates. I sort and choose the photos that I believe best tell the story in the most complimentary way. I narrow it down to the top images (based on the number you receive for your specific session). These are all edited in detail and delivered to you on a disc.

What happens if my children don't cooperate? Will I get a re-shoot?

I try and make our session as relaxed as possible. I like to play tag and peek-a-boo with your kids, taking the time to get to know your kids will help with more natural poses and smiles. Relaxed portrait sessions should be fun! It’s important that the parents take part in the fun:) Re-shoots are offered on a case-by-case basis after I’ve had time to go through the images captured at your session.
