It's all in the details

Booking a session with Studio Lumiere is about so much more than your average photography session. It's about the details - our naturally lit studio space with a classic design & furniture, access to our client closet with over 40 gowns for moms and many outfit options for dads and children, a personalized experience with Kristyn or Mackenzie.. the list goes on! Click through the carousel below to get an idea of the Studio Lumiere experience!


If you feel that Studio Lumiere may be the right fit to document your family's special moments, please reach out through the contact form! We will send you more information and would love to either chat through email or schedule a time to chat over the phone. We take on a limited number of sessions per month and suggests booking in advance to make sure you reserve a space in the timeframe you are hoping for. Newborn session dates are not chosen in advance, rather we reserve tentative spots for families and then you reach out to us once baby arrives to schedule your session. To reserve your session, we require the session fee up front as well as a signed contract. 

Step one:
INQUIRE & RESERVE YOUR SESSION

Once you're all booked in, we will send you our client guide with an abundance of helpful information to help you feel prepared. These are mainly tips on how to prepare on the morning of your newborn session, what to bring to different types of sessions, and studio guidelines. All clients have access to our curated client closet with over 40 dresses for moms and outfits for dads and children up to 7 years old. This is one of our favorite aspects of Studio Lumiere - it saves families time and money on outfits that you may not even wear again. We are also happy to help you with booking professional makeup and hair services with one of the talented companies we trust. 

STEP TWO:
PREPARE FOR YOUR SESSION

Every effort is taken to make sure the studio is a safe place for families. We wear a mask for every session, sanitize often, and reserves time between sessions to ensure there is adequate time for cleaning. There is no problem if families need to postpone due to sickness or symptoms of COVID-19, and we will do the same. Screening questionnaires are sent out the day before your session. Families also have the option of having a hands off session (where parents pose and dress baby). Once you arrive to the studio, you'll be led upstairs where the studio and studio washroom are. There will be enough time to change, enjoy a beverage, and get comfortable before the camera comes out. Kristyn and Mackenzie's warm and outgoing personalities helps everyone to feel welcome and comfortable, and we loves connecting with our clients! 

STEP THREE:
YOUR PHOTO SESSION

You'll receive a link with your proofing gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after your session. This gallery will have approximately 60-70 images from your session for you to choose from. There are options for digital packages, and prints and albums are available. The images you choose to purchase will be fully edited and retouched, and you'll receive both color and black and white versions. We are able to accommodate editing requests and strive to deliver images that our clients love and feel proud to print and display in their homes! Your final images are edited within 2 weeks and delivered to you through a downloadable online gallery. After this, we will hope to hear from you down the road to book your next session!

kind words

We had such a lovely experience working with Kristyn! She was so organized, very professional and most importantly, her photographs are absolutely beautiful! She scoped out the best spots for gorgeous lighting on a summer evening and was incredibly patient and sweet while capturing the most precious moments with our newborn twins. The photos are timeless and classic and we are so thankful to Kristyn for doing such a wonderful job!

Desiree - new mom of twins

Working with Mackenzie has been amazing! She has been very accommodating and kind about all our wants and needs for our photographs. She is so easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Mackenzie made our maternity photos timeless and so beautiful we
could not be happier with how turned out! 10/10 recommend.

JESSICA

Not only is Kristyn one of the most talented photographers in the industry, I've been privileged to get to know her as a friend. She is so sweet, kind and professional - not to mention patient (especially with little ones). It was our first time having professional family photos together and she made the whole process so enjoyable - we had no nerves whatsoever. We had SO much fun and I was overcome with emotion when we got our photos. Thank you, Kristyn, for being so lovely and for capturing these precious memories for us!

NICOLE 

Kristyn has done our engagement, wedding and newborn photos. She has not only done exceptional work but also has been very professional, kind and patient throughout all of our shoots. Her photography has a soft and romantic feel and we've have received many compliments on all of our photos. I highly recommend trying her as your photographer!
