Eclectic-cheeky photography for easygoing, silly and playful families.
My clients describe themselves as "chaotic", "fun-loving", "oddball" and "silly", and are drawn to my style. I'm often told I capture the true essence of their family, a quality they value above all else. Being here you share these sentiments. You may have had studio portraits done before and found the experience stuffy and inflexible and the kids uncooperative, and it may have been when they were babies. Years have passed and it's been on your mind as the photos lining your walls could use an update. What you want is an experience that effortlessly captures your family dynamic.
Lucy Baum Montreal Family PhotographyLet life unfold in front of the camera. Kids don't pay attention; it's a gift that they can be themselves. Of course sometimes they act up for the camera too - all part of being a kid!
This is what I like to see during a photoshoot, and work hard to create an atmosphere of trust, fun and goofiness.
You want an honest yet curated reflection of your chaotic, loving, ridiculous life (that you wouldn't trade for anything) and each unique personality. Non-traditional and young at heart, you don't want a cookie-cutter look about your photos. You're not into matchy-matchy outfits or highly coordinated and posed photoshoots. Here's where I do my best work. I seek to understand your vibe as a family and find thoughtful, creative, and quirky ways to reflect that back to you through images.
No overly-posed stuff here. Real life happening, everyone being themselves.
As a couple looking for maternity and newborn photos, you value a comfortable experience at home, at least after baby comes. You want your photographer to capture the surreal feelings of a tiny human joining your household - the nursery you've lovingly put together (with maybe a a few curse words like Ryan Reynolds here - careful, strong language!!), quiet moments of feeding and changing, relationships with siblings and family pets, and of course all the love your hearts can handle. You appreciate things on your (and baby's) schedule, rather than the other way around.
Going with the flow of the family, some wonderful opportunities make for intensely memorable photographs.
Photography is a way to keep our little ones little, even when they keep getting big. My 9x6 layflat signature albums, available in print press or photographic quality, keep those little faces, places and family memories beautifully in one bound book.
