First, let me tell you what it’s not. It’s not about everyone dressed up in matching outfits, perfectly posed, looking straight into the camera with big staged smiles. – There’s nothing wrong with the traditional way of taking portrait photos. But when you look back at these pictures, what do you remember about your life at this point in time? Which part of you, or your kids’ personality came through?
As a mother, I know that each child is unique. Each family is unique. And our real life cannot be further from what’s portrayed in these “perfect” pictures。
Now, let’s sit back and look at your life as is. Which moment do you love? What do you want to remember? Maybe it’s the curve of your daughter’s lips when she is giggling. The naughty little lock of hair that always stands up straight on your boy’s forehead. The way the kids run to your husband when he comes home from work. A silly little game that never fails to makes your kids laugh. To me, these are priceless. We are missing out so much by leaving these important memories out of our family album, possibly lost and forgotten.
Please let me help your family tell the incredible story you have already so beautifully written. For you, for your children, and for their children. The laughter, the tears, the hugs, the crazy, the joy, the chaos…the love that shines through the everyday. Nothing is more important than documenting this, because many years from now, you’ll be able to walk right through these images to land at this very moment in time, and remember all these little lovely details that make you “you”.
Let me tell your story and show you the beauty of the everyday.
I want all my clients to be happy, so it’s important to me that your vision matches with my style. If you are looking for posed traditional portraits with lots of crazy props, then I’m probably not the photographer for you. My clients are creative and unconventional. They enjoy the genuine, organic moments and embrace beauty in the everyday. If this sounds like you, then I can’t wait to meet you!
I travel within and around Montreal, QC to photograph your family at your home, or another location that is meaningful to you. I would also be happy to suggest other locations if neither of these options work for you.
Yes! I travel worldwide for client sessions, for an additional fee to cover travel time and expenses. Please contact me for details if you’d like me to document your family vacation or special events abroad.
The creative fee for weekday family portrait sessions is $150 and weekend session creative fee is $200. I also offer Belly to Baby plan (Maternity session + Newborn session) at $225 (add $50 each session for weekend). 100% of the creative fee is required at the time of booking to secure your date, and is non-refundable.
The creative fee formally books your portrait appointment and covers a complimentary pre-session consultation, the portrait session, artistic hand retouching of all images and a private ordering session at my Montreal home studio.
The creative fee does not include any products or digital files. However, there is no minimum purchase requirement. You may purchase artworks and/or digital files via “Create A Collection” or A La Carte. A La Carte artworks start at $70. Collections start at $575 and include 40-60 high-resolution, professionally retouched images and your own choice of one of our signature products (choose from our wall grouping, heirloom album, image box or gallery wrap canvas). Please contact me for our product menu.
For weddings or event coverage, please contact me for a custom commission quote.
Studio sessions are very limited and priority is offered to my VIP Birthday Club clients. Please contact me for details. Limited number of outdoor mini sessions are offered at certain time of the year, so please subscribe to my newsletter to make sure that you don't miss out. (You can unsubscribe anytime.)
I aim to make artworks that tell the story of who you are as a family within our time together, so we will begin well before your session by honing in on our vision for your session. We will discuss aesthetics, activity ideas and wardrobe. I will ask you questions and we will get to know each other a bit better.
After arriving at your home or your chosen location, we will ease into an honest and adventurous time together by letting your family’s favourite activities unfold. I will also guide the session by inviting all of your family members to participate in emotion-filled interactions and fun games, which guarantees to bring out the most genuine expressions and laughters! Typically a session takes 2-3 hours. However, I only take one client per day, so that our shoot will last as long as we need it to…because magic can’t be rushed.
3-4 weeks after our session I will contact you to let you know your images are ready for ordering at my studio. You will be presented with a gallery of 40-60 individually hand-retouched images to choose and purchase. Studio Wei is a full service photography studio – offering only the most beautiful, archival art pieces for your family that you can enjoy now and pass down to your children later. I will help you choose the best images for your wall art display or a signature album. Once your order is placed and paid for at the ordering session, your digital images will be sent to you via a download link on the same day and your beautiful handmade artworks will be ready for pick-up in 4-6 weeks.
Although I’m passionate about photography, my husband and my two baby girls take priority in my life. Very limited amount of session spots are offered every month on a first come first serve basis. So please contact me ASAP to book your free pre-session consultation session to secure your spot! Thanks and I can’t wait to meet you!
