Milestone Event Photography
Planning a Baptism, anniversary, family reunion, or a “Just, because!” party? Surely you’d prefer to enjoy the event without worrying about capturing every moment. So let me do that for you. As a professional specializing in Milestone Event Photography, I’ll make sure to capture all the beautiful memories of your upcoming event. You’ll get an assortment of memory enticing photos. From cheeky candids of everyone being their wonderful selves to formal portraits that you will display for years to come.
Types of Milestones
I genuinely love attending special events. It’s always a privilege to have an important role in capturing the day. Primarily I am a wedding photographer who documents one of life’s biggest milestones. But that’s just the start. Couples return for a variety of key moments in their life such as maternity and newborn sessions. I also photograph annual Picture Days for a few small schools in the GTA. While these are predominantly portrait sessions, milestone event photography is a bit different. They’re bigger and involve families and loved ones attending.
Some of the milestones I cover include coming of age events like Baptisms, Cottilions, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet 16s, Graduations, and so on. My birthday parties range from ages 1-100. Obviously I don’t recommend families to bring me on each year. However, the 1st birthday and major decades are good causes for celebration. Anniversaries and Renewal of Vows Ceremonies go hand in hand. So I’ll normally see families during their silver/gold anniversaries when they resultantly renew their vows. These types of events are incredibly fun. And when you have epic photos to match, the service can become addicting. To the point where you bring me back over and over.
I deliver professionally edited images via digital download one week after your milestone event. I don’t sensor the images. If they successfully came out, you get it. My editing for these events is very similar to a wedding. The edits are very subtle and involve airbrushing to give the skin a nice glow, evening out lighting, fixing blinkers, and wandering eyes. These are all standard edits included in my package prices. If you have more advanced edits in mind, I can provide a custom quote. This is based on the complexity of the request. Upgrades such as albums, canvases, and prints are available as well but you can decide on these once you’ve had a chance to review the images.
Mikayla’s Birthday Party was celebrated in the family home. The session was performed during COVID using new safety measures. To learn more about these protocols, check out my COVID Protocols page. I also did the family’s maternity shoot, and Christmas portraits.
