Why should I choose Inner Light Photography?

Unlike many photography services out there, my goal is not just to hear what you have to say, but to actively listen and create something at least comparable to your vision, if not exceed it entirely.

I have received a Professional Photography Certificate from the New York Insitute of Photography and am currently working on receiving another entitled Photoshop for Professional Photographers. I've also completed a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from Mount Royal University. Using all of these tools and my Country-Girl Personality, I will do my absolute best to provide you with great photos and awesome customer service!

How far in advance should I book?

To avoid disappointment, as soon as possible! This is especially true if your goal is to get photos done prior to a major holiday. Don't forget to allow time for the editing of your photos, and for any printing time that may be required for Christmas cards etc that you would like to get done through another vendor.

To give a more specific answer, 2-3 months in advance for lifestyle sessions will generally be sufficient; and at least 6 months in advance for Weddings. If this timeline has come and gone, don't fret! Send me a message and we'll see what we can do to fit you in!

When is the best time for a Maternity Session?

Generally I suggest between 28 and 35 weeks; when your tummy is nice and round! You want to come when you feel good, but before the downward venture begins! The idea is to come when you are nice and comfortable. Some women experience water retention and skin irritation as they come to term, making for an uncomfortable experience. We want you looking and feeling your best!

Where do Sessions take place?

I absolutely love the outdoors, and for that reason I find I do my best work there, using natural light to highlight your best features!

Boudoir sessions can take place wherever you are most comfortable; in your own bedroom where clothing options are almost limitless, or in a nice hotel room that you don't have to clean prior! We'll work together to find the perfect location.

Lifestyle Sessions can take place anywhere in the Drayton Valley area. We will work together to find a great place that will work for you and your vision! If you have a place in mind outside of the Drayton Valley area, travel costs may apply.

Weddings can also be done anywhere; however, travel costs may apply.

How long do sessions take and how many images will I receive?

Engagement Sessions take approximately one hour and you will receive between 20 and 30 edited images for you to share, print, and enlarge as you wish.

Different Wedding packages are available, contact me for more detailed information!

Maternity Sessions take approximately one hour and you will receive between 20 and 30 edited images for you the share, print, and enlarge as you wish.

Family Sessions take approximately one hour and you will receive between 25 and 35 edited images for you to share, print and enlarge as you wish.

Boudoir Sessions are for one hour and you will receive between 20 and 30 edited images for you to share, print and enlarge as you wish.

And of course if you are looking for something that doesn't quite fit into any of these categories, such as a Milestone or Boudoir, I will do my best to plan something special just for you!

Are the images I receive prints or digital files?

You will receive high quality, edited .jpeg files on a disc, labelled with your information for future reference.

How long will it be until I get to see my photos?

I do my very best to post "sneak peeks" within a few days after your session. You will receive all your digital photos no later than 4 weeks following your session during high season, 2-3 weeks during the slower seasons.
