For Clients

Thank you so much for choosing Christie Ellen Photography to capture your memories!


If you aren’t familiar with my style of photography, I would invite you to check out my online portfolio here.


As you can see from my collection of photos, I love capturing candid, authentic moments in an artistic way. So that means I want real smiles--actually, can we just agree right now, no fake cheesy smiles from either of us, ok? Good. Here is a bit more about what you can expect from me:


First of all, I want us to relax and have fun. My goal is to capture you (and whoever else is going to be in the session with you) as authentically YOU as I possibly can. And in order to do that, we need to be at ease with one another. So let’s just get rid of the first date jitters now and skip right to the comfy part of the relationship where we sit on the couch together in sweats and watch movies (Metaphorically speaking of course. Unless, that is, you want me to come over to your house to watch movies. In which case, head’s up, I like wine with my popcorn).

I’m professional but also super casual and I love to laugh so be prepared to get a little silly on the day of our shoot.


Next, in order for me to get to know a bit more about you and the goal you have in mind for our session, here are just a few questions I would love for you to answer. (No essays required, so don’t stress. Short and sweet answers will do just fine.)

Once you book your appointment and we get the formal stuff like questionnaire and deposit out of the way, you can expect to hear from me a few days before our session to confirm all the details once again and to make sure we are all on the same page about our session together. I will then likely confirm again the day before (I know...probably a bit of an overkill situation here but I have two small kids and about a thousand things going on at any given time so this confirmation is just as much a reminder for me as it is for you).


Your payment options are cash or e-transfer and are due the day of the session.


Once our session is over, I know you are excited to see your photos and get your proofs! So approximately a week after our session, I will send you a link and a password to your online gallery. You can download the photos from the gallery but they will not be full resolution. The full resolution photos will be delivered to you on a USB at an agreed-upon time and date.


I think that’s it! I can’t wait to meet you :)

What are your names?

Do you have children? If yes, what are their ages?

What are your hobbies? What do you like to do together as a family?

Tell me a bit about your children. Do they have any favourite toys or activities?

Is there a special location that is meaningful to you that we could go on the day of shoot?

What is the goal of your session with me?

Is there anything else I should know about before our session? (For example, do you especially want me to focus on your children interacting with one another? Does Dad hate getting his picture taken? etc)

Thanks for submitting!
