KIND WORDS

"It's such an important experience to get in front of the camera for your own business, the problem is that not every photographer can capture your essence and pull who you are and what you do from a single shoot. From planning to execution the shoot was fun and easy! The images are useful + bridge the gap between too casual and too posed, encompassing all aspects of my business/personal story and mission as a creative entrepreneur. There was a certain aspect of ease surrounding the entire process and day of the shoot.  "

Chrystal Mcleod, HARLOW

KIND WORDS

"I’m not gonna lie. I was TERRIFED to hire Anastasia because I was afraid I wasn’t pretty enough, thin enough, young enough, photogenic enough to warrant hiring such a talented professional photographer. But what I discovered was that Anastasia is more than a photographer. She’s a midwife. She sees with the eye behind the eyes, listens with the ear behind the ear and then compassionately delivers you into the world through images that capture the bold, beautiful truth of who you are. "

KIND WORDS

"Team Anastasia creates the most beautiful day. We laughed a LOT. We oooo'd and awww'd. I'm pretty sure we all teared up a few times. It's the best way to make beautiful images...to just be at ease with incredibly caring, talented and down-to-earth women. Working with Anastasia and her team is pure JOY. Every detail is attended to, but there's still so much creative flow. She got the essence of who I am and what I want to offer to the world. And I got a boatload of images...so generous."

KIND WORDS

"Anastasia is now my chosen 'family.' I say this because she has captured images of me, and my team, for a multitude of years now, and in very raw and fun expressions and moments. With each year - and photoshoot - that passes it is clear deep safety, trust, and admiration deepens. I cannot wait for our next (family) reunion."

KIND WORDS

"My session with Anastasia was like a day at the spa - it was filled with endless pampering, beauty, and joy and I felt like a million dollars throughout. The day was also filled with so much laughter and ease that ended with me having the most brilliant photos of myself and my work. I've used these photos in hundreds of different capacities personally and professionally and people never cease to profess their love for them. Anastasia makes the whole experience beyond comfortable and her team picked the perfect wardrobe that made me feel like a goddess.

KIND WORDS

"Anastasia and her team of creative and compassionate women create a day that is truly all about You. The entire day of hair, make up, delicious food, gorgeous clothes, life coaching and photo shoot (where you aren't behind the camera, but rather in front of it!) is an incredible experience. It is the seeing yourself through someone else's lens however, that for me, was the wildly profound and most impactful take away. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to meet and work with Anastasia."

KIND WORDS

"I can completely let go when working with a talent as grand as you. The experience starts before I meet the client, as you pull me into someone else's world, I'm already styling them in my mind. As the creative process evolves, every step is full of inspiration from everyone on the team, yet consistent in the look being created, to be on point regarding branding. On set, we are organized, ready for anything to happen organically, no restrictions allows for a beautiful flow for moments to happen. The experience of a shoot with you is spiritually mind blowing. The results are breathtaking, EVERYTIME!!!"

KIND WORDS

"I am over the moon about the fun we had. It was just so easy to get into a creative groove with you for the afternoon. I really felt like you were in your zone and I was in mine. And that certainly would not have happened if you didn’t set the stage and allow me, no actually full on nudge me to do my thing and genuinely celebrate it. And the results were perfect. I finally have a glimpse of what I want to share with my potential clients and industry peers. The images represent exactly what I want to showcase in my craft. Invaluable as an artist."

KIND WORDS

" In my  photoshoot, I not only got more than my money’s worth of every type of creative photo I needed to up-level my business platform and a year’s worth of unique social media images, I got something more, something priceless. Anastasia is not just a photographer, she is an intuitive. Knowing me for only a few hours from our meeting the day before we shot, she was able to draw out and capture sides and qualities of myself I hadn’t recognized. Seeing her perspective of me in the photos upgraded my own perspective of who I am for my clients, my community and the world."

KIND WORDS

"Spending the day shooting with Anastasia was so fun and productive! She made me feel comfortable being solo in front of the camera (no small feat!) and captured so many beautiful photos that I use on Eve's Crackers website, Instagram and in other marketing collateral. We captured product, lifestyle, head shots and food photography images all in one day. The content we created during our session has made it so much easier to plan my business's digital content, not to mention how cool it is to have these images as keepsakes for that time in my entrepreneurial journey."

Here are the answers to a few of my most frequently asked questions.

Please take a minute to read through them.

Also, I love talking to you in person and can jump on a call if you have additional questions or want me to walk you through a typical day of shooting.

What is your availability? 

What is your availability? 

Please reach out as soon as you can if you are wanting to book my services. I book full-day shoots year round in Whistler/ Squamish/ Pemberton and the Lower Mainland. Very occasionally, I can book a shoot with less than one or two months’ notice. Your best bet is to call me if you are working with time restrictions and we can see what we can do.

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN COSTS?

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN COSTS?

You can choose to add additional services when you create your proposal. I highly recommend booking hair and makeup, and booking an indoor location where you will be comfortable changing throughout the day. Some clients choose to book an AirBnB, but your home and/or office are also great choices if they have lots of natural light. We can do your booking for you for a coordination fee. You can supply any items you want included in your photoshoot personally however any props, backdrops or additional items that you request us to find will be extra with payment due on receipt after your shoot, but nothing is hidden—ever. Whenever you request extras, I will confirm your costs by email.

Do you offer discounts? 

Do you offer discounts? 

I don’t discount my services, however generosity is important to me and I am always looking for ways to give back to our community, especially to support indigenous and/ or women making an impact within our community. Feel free to reach out to me with any special requests.

Do you offer half day sessions?

Do you offer half day sessions?

My preference is always to offer a full day service as that provides the best return on your investment. With a full day, we aren’t rushed and you get so much more content. However, I welcome your inquiries. Once in a while, a half day of shooting opens up, and I will let you know if I think it’s a good fit for your goals with your project. 

What additional services do you offer?

WHAT ADDITIONAL SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?

We offer additional services including hair and makeup, behind the scenes reels, location, props and clothing scouting, styling and art direction. You can choose your extras when you book your date. 

How much do you charge for travel expenses?

How much do you charge for travel expenses?

Travel expenses within the Sea to Sky—Squamish/Whistler Pemberton are included. Anything outside of the Sea to Sky corridor will be extra. Costs vary depending on whether I’m driving to Vancouver and getting a hotel for the night or jumping on a plane and renting a car. I keep all of my travel receipts and charge a per diem. Please reach out for more information, all costs are agreed upon before travel commences.

What is your cancellation policy?

What is your cancellation policy?

If you’ve already put a deposit down on a date, then have to postpone or cancel it for any reason, the deposit is transferable, and we can schedule a new date. Our deposits are non refundable. Please note that there are limited dates available and rebooking your shoot is subject to availability. 

Which locations work best for shooting?

Which locations work best for shooting?

These images help people get to know you and your business, so often clients choose to shoot at their home or workplace, or another place they feel inspired. We will go over some of the options in your consultation, but ultimately any place you feel comfortable with lots of natural light will work well. We will use your products, props and clothing to create the atmosphere and mood of your images. We love to support our clients in location scouting and offer a coordination fee to do so. We always try to pick unique locations with natural light and can fit within your budget requirements.

What about clothing and accessories?

What about clothing and accessories?

Again, we’ll go into more specifics during your consultation and create a Milanote of options for you to reference. More is always better with outfits because it allows us to create different moods in your images. I recommend a minimum of four to five outfits, plus extras like accessories, shoes, sweaters and jackets for mixing and matching. If you have an item of clothing that you love or has special meaning to you, but aren’t sure how to style it—bring it and we’ll help you!

What if it rains, snows etc.?

What if it rains, snows etc.?

I am a natural light photographer with twenty years of experience and can make almost all weather conditions work, sometimes with better results than we would have achieved in so-called perfect conditions. However, I am realistic and highly invested in the right quality of light for your project. If I decide the lighting conditions just will not work for what you’re trying to achieve, I will give you as much notice as possible and the opportunity to reschedule for free.

What’s included in my consultation?

What’s included in my consultation?

Your consultation provides everything you need to feel prepared and excited about shooting with me. We’ll create a Milanote full of inspiration for your colours, style, clothing, props, location, mood and atmosphere. Most importantly, we’ll tease out the threads of your story that make you unique and showcase your business journey. Your values, beliefs, successes and detours are compelling and should take a central role in your shoot planning. I will help you bring all of this to life.

What am I responsible for planning?

What am I responsible for planning?

After the consultation, you will have everything you need to choose/book your ideal location and select your clothing props and extras to bring with you on the day of shooting. I will suggest anything over and above these items that I think is necessary to achieve your goals, but it’s ultimately up to you to decide what resonates with you and fits your budget. We also offer coordination fees if you’d like extra help with your booking, sourcing, shopping and anything else you need help with.

Do I have to have hair and makeup?

Do I have to have hair and makeup?

I never require anything of you that you don’t feel comfortable with, but I recommend hair and makeup if it will take the pressure off you, and you’ll find it completely relaxing. The most important thing is that you feel free to be fully present and express yourself. If hair and makeup helps with that…it is so worth it! My hair and makeup artist are incredibly talented, and enhance your experience with so many extras.

How many images do I receive? 

How many images do I receive? 

You will receive a minimum of 500 high quality professionally edited images in an online gallery that makes it easy for you to save and share your photos.


Can you edit in a requested style?

Can you edit in a requested style?

My style is with minimal alteration to the image. If you’d like me to work with a preset to create a more specific look, then I have a series of darker, styled or more muted edits that are possible. I like to decide this before the shoot, though, as it affects my lighting choices. This will be a discussion during your shoot planning.


What is your turnaround time? 

What is your turnaround time? 

Within a week of your shoot, I will share a highlight reel with you with some of my favourite photos. Your full gallery, edited and ready to share will be available within a month of your shoot. 

What is your usage?

What is your usage?

The copyright of the images belongs to me, as is standard in the industry unless we agree to a different arrangement in a writing. The reason for this across the industry is that it prevents clients from selling a photographer’s images to a third party. However, your photos are yours to use in every way possible to promote you and your business, and of course, for you to use personally.

Do you give raw images?

Do you give raw images?

No. I never give raw images because they are unfinished and difficult to transfer. You will receive your images edited and processed as jpeg files in an online gallery that makes saving and sharing easy for you.

Do you use studio lighting?

Do you use studio lighting?

No, I’m a natural light photographer.

Do you photoshop people?

Do you photoshop people?

I don't photoshop people—ever. To be honest, I don’t believe in changing any part of you because it always minimizes you and detracts from your story. You will see your own imperfections more than anyone and maybe even make up ones that don’t exist, but I encourage you to look again, soften your gaze, focus on your message and give yourself the same grace you afford others—this is you, and you are magnificent.

Can I book a call with you? I have more questions.

Can I book a call with you? I have more questions.

Yes! Of course!
If you’ve read through the FAQ’s and have additional questions, I’d love to answer them for you. Every single one of my clients is different, from how they feel in front of the camera to their personal style and vision. I’ve been photographing people for 20 years and have captured a wide variety of personalities, ideas and projects, but some things remain the same. If I can reassure you about any aspect of this process and help with your decision-making, I would love help. Please book a time to chat with me.

The world needs you and your work

We create images for your website and social media that are honest, original, intriguing, beautiful and human.
