Since 2008, Jennifer Gilbert has been providing Maternity, Newborn, Child and Family Photography services to the GTA and surround areas.
How It Begins (4-6 weeks before your anticipated session date)
Our journey begins when you complete the Contact Form. This provides us with the information we need to contact you to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. This is usually done over email, however, sometimes a telephone call is helpful.
Approximately 3 weeks before your session, you will receive a Portrait Session Guide and appointment card in the mail, and we will schedule our telephone consultation. During the consultation, we will discuss what to wear, what to expect from each other, and finalize the location and time. This is a chance to get to know each other better, and for me to answer any questions you may have. The consultation takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and are done during regular office hours which are 9 am to 3 pm, Monday to Friday.
Our session date will arrive, and we will have an amazing time together!
A few days after our portrait session, we will contact you to set up your in-home image presentation. This is where you will select which images you would like purchase for display in your home. I will arrive with samples and can show you what the images will look like on your walls.
Your photography budget:
The cost of professional photography is, understandably, higher than what you would see at a franchise photography studio or with someone that lacks the skill and ability to creatively document your family’s memories. Please be assured that a professional photographer is not ‘being greedy’ when it comes to their pricing their services. We have taken the time to calculate our business costs which includes so many variables.
A session with Jennifer Gilbert starts at $99 for the session fee. Prints and products are purchased during your private, in-home ordering consultation. There is no minimum purchase required, however, clients typically budget $800 for their product purchase.
Digital vs. Print
We know that your images are important to you. We understand why you would want all your digital images, but we also understand that technology changes quickly, hard drives crash and data can become corrupt. Because of this, we encourage our clients to purchase printed product of their favourite images. We are pleased to offer the following products:
- Gallery Frames
- Museum Canvas
- HD Metal
- Birth Announcements
- Wall Clusters and Storyboards
- Digital files are available for purchase. They are not included in the session fee.
Because these photographs will become treasured pieces in your home, I only offer high-quality and unique products. These include matted prints, custom-designed collages, hand-crafted albums as well as canvas and framed prints.
At your Image Presentation, we will discuss what is right for your home and you will decide which pieces are appropriate for your family. Here are a few product examples:
Matted prints are ready for framing. They are available in standard sizes such as 8×10, 11×14 and 16×20.
Your product will be delivered within the delivery dates set out at your image presentation. Please note that custom product does take longer, sometimes 4-6 weeks, depending on the design.
