Lifestyle Family

I believe in capturing families as they are. Those candid moments are my favourite. When your son looks up at you in complete awe and admiration. They way your daughter insists on holding your hand so she knows you’re right there. I want to hear your family’s story. I love learning about the unique details that make your family close. That’s what I’ll capture for you. To me, it goes beyond the smiling at the camera pose – sure we’ll capture that, but let’s also have some fun and capture images that evoke authentic love and joy. Long after your kids are grown, these are the memories you will cherish the most.

Above are some of my favourite images captured in my Lifestyle Family Sessions. I accept a limited number of bookings each month. Please reserve your date early to ensure I have space in my calendar. I shoot my in-home lifestyle sessions all year round and schedule outdoor sessions between May and October.

In-Home Lifestyle Family Session  | $450 | 

Every family is unique and has their own story. I love to capture these stories and the best setting to do this is in your own home. It’s a fun, real and comfortable way to document life while your children are young. These every day memories are the ones that you will cherish the most years from now. We will create photos that last a lifetime and allow you to be transported back to this time in an instant. I will guide you and your family toward good light in your home and gently provide direction on activities and interaction if needed, but I won’t make you sit and “say cheese”. I want to capture your love and interaction as a family so you can have beautiful photographic memories for this stage of their childhood forever.

Your session includes:

  • 1-1.5 hour photo session with parents and siblings using the living room, kid’s bedrooms, master bedroom and other rooms with bright natural light.
  • Travel time to your home (within Burlington, Oakville, Waterdown, Hamilton or Milton)
  • Access to online gallery to download and share your images
  • Print release
  • 30+ high-resolution digital images each in colour and black + white
  • $50 print credit

I offer weekend lifestyle family sessions when I am available, but because my weekends are in such high demand, I do charge an additional weekend fee of $50.  Saturday and Sunday sessions will have an additional $50 fee on top of the listed session price.

A non-refundable deposit of $50 is due at booking and reserves the date of your session. Three weeks after your session your photos will be viewable in an online gallery for about two weeks. Downloading of images and ordering prints (through my lab if you choose) can be done during this time. I offer all-inclusive portrait sessions so that you have the digital images from your session to cherish forever. Pricing is subject to change, but if they change I will honour prices at the time of your booking. If have any questions please contact me or check out my Q+A page which has more detailed information.


Hope + Salt Photography specializes in newborn, baby, maternity, family and lifestyle photography in the Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton and Waterdown areas. For more information or to book a session contact me here!
