You’ve Got Questions?

How Do I prepare for my session/ what do I wear? 

One of the most stressful parts of planning for your family photo session is trying to figure out what to wear. Well, I got you. Once we book our adventure together I will email you my personal outfit/style guide. In there you will find the do’s and don'ts to creating a wardrobe that will be cohesive with the authenticity of your family while meeting the vibe of imagery. 

You call it chaos.      We call it family


Family Sessions – the fun begins an hour before sunset. Which is all our favourite time of day, right? Right lol…..Golden hour. With each varying season this time changes slightly. Between approximately 6pm-8pm. slightly earlier in the spring and fall when the sun tends to set earlier in the day. Family sessions are done 3 days a week, outdoors, unless you are requesting an indoor session. Contact me to discuss those details. Family Sessions tend to book out 4-6 months plus in advance. 

Newborn Session – the fun begins at 10am and newborn sessions are shot 2-3 days a week between Mon-Friday. These are done in the comfort of your own home and a more documentary styled approach. Which means, the whole fam jam is joining in on this adventure. Please contact me as soon as possible once you hit the 12+ week mark in order to confirm a temporary date. If you are also looking to combine a maternity session along with your newborn session, we have a package available as a discounted rate. Once again newborn sessions are booked between 4-6 months plus in advance.

You just had a blast with me, now what?

So we just had an epic hang out and it’s time for me to head out. What do I do next you ask. Within 48-72 hours you can expect a sneak peak of some of the magic we made. I know how excited I am to share the magic, so I could only imagine the anticipation of waiting. Once images have been carefully selected, edited and crafted to the best of my ability to tell your story, I will send your images directly through email in an online gallery. Your online gallery is password protected. Here you are able view, download images purchased and share your gallery with friends and family. Attached to your gallery is a wide range of products available to display throughout your home or gift to your loved ones. 

How do I get my hands on the goods?!?!

You have now invested the time, the energy and the love into prepping for your session, creating with me during your session and now you are scrolling through your gallery with feelings of love, admiration and joy. Why let it stop there in digital form? PRINT YOUR PHOTOS , it’s one of the most important lesson I have learned as a photographer. How many times after you download your images will your revisit your gallery. Like many others (myself included at one point) we end up leaving all of these feelings on a cloud or hard drive tucked away somewhere. I believe in surrounding myself with what brings me joy, what fills my house with love and for me that is my family. As a photographer it is my hope after our session is to provide you with tangible moments that surround you daily. A gentle reminder for you and your family to FEEL those feeling you felt scrolling through your gallery. You can view and select different products that are available in the online store attached to your gallery or you can email me for more information. 

Stesha Bella Photography brings the magic!!!  Steph came to our home for a family new born session. As soon as she arrived you could feel her positive energy. Being a new mom is a chaotic time, and Steph brought a sense of peace and ease to our morning. Her energy, professionalism and patience made the morning not only easy but fun! Her creativity and talent with her camera is genius. As soon as we were done we couldn't wait to see the photos - and we were not disappointed! Steph has forever captured those precious newborn moments for us. Looking forward to many more sessions ahead!
