Your Signature Family Photography Experience

As a family portrait and lifestyle photographer, I am dedicated to creating joyful images to help you remember your perfect now for years to come. I believe in the importance of photography as an invaluable keepsake and timeless family heirloom.

When you schedule a session with Erin Clayton Photography, you can expect a full-service experience while we have fun creating incredible memories and keepsakes that you and your family will cherish for years to come.

Before the Photo Session

Once we decide a date for your family’s portrait session, I will send you a short questionnaire that will help me plan your custom session and choose the perfect outdoor location for your family. You will also receive a Getting Ready Guide to assist you with outfit planning.

As your photographer, it is my job to help you display your photos in a way that is most meaningful to you. I will request that you send me photos of your favourite walls in your home. The images of your walls will be used to create complimentary gallery wall ideas for your home incorporating the images we capture during your photo session.

During the Photo Session

I strive to create an enjoyable and relaxed family photography experience from start to finish. Your outdoor family session will include a beautiful location where we document your family’s authentic interactions and laughter. 

I love to incorporate a combination of candid and lightly posed portraits, focused on your love and connection as a family. Depending on your image preference, our time together will be centered around creating the type of images and memories you want to create. Some families love natural poses while other families are partial to lifestyle and play-based family imagery.

After the Photo Session

About two weeks after your session, you’ll receive an online gallery link to view your images and choose your favourites. Your session includes the outdoor session, hand retouching of your best images and a presentation of these images in an online gallery from which to choose your favourites. Your session also includes a select number of digital downloads with print rights — the number of digital files included in your session varies depending on the session type you book. Digital collection upgrade options are also available.

Once you’ve chosen your favourite images and decide how you would like to display your photos in your home, I will put the final touches on your images and send the downloadable print-ready files to you via digital download. Digital images are delivered within two weeks of ordering and print product orders are ready for pick up 6-8 weeks following payment.
