PORCH PORTRAITS | PORCHIES | FRONT DOOR PROJECT | PORCHRAITS
Book a safely-distanced 15 minute front porch photo session to refresh your family portrait in time for the holidays.
I am a local Toronto photographer capturing the beautiful side of life, one terrific family portrait at a time. I serve Toronto families, and during the pandemic the demand for family portraits increased dramatically. I continue to offer the same great at-home outdoor family photos, with the option for a short and sweet front door experience.
I work mainly in my nearest neighbourhoods of Leaside, Lawrence Park, Davisville Village, Lytton Park, Moore Park and Rosedale. I am happy to visit you wherever you live in the GTA.
I will photograph your family on your front steps, porch, lawn or backyard where we can maintain a safe social distance for us all. By using telephoto lenses I can keep my distance while making great photographs that feel joyful and natural.
I only offer porch portraits when Toronto is experience pandemic related lock-downs. This is my way of helping my community during extraordinary times. However, my signature family portrait is the gold standard, and available to you on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year, assuming we are not in lockdown.
It will only take 15 minutes (maybe up to 30 minutes), all outdoors. A few days after the session, you will see the photos in an on-line gallery where you can download your three favourite images and place an order for printed photographs and more.
My fee for a porch portrait is $300 plus tax. This includes three digital images of your choice. Payment by eTransfer is required before the session. Additional digital images and prints may be purchased. Read more about the portrait products I offer here.
My regular portrait session takes 90 minutes and includes a greater variety of poses and more time for candid images. This is an incredible opportunity to document your family life. You may also want to include the grandparents and other relatives here. Learn more here.
The first round of safe porch portraits that I did during our first pandemic lock-down in the summer of 2020 were not for pay. Instead, I asked families to donate to Sunnybrook Hospital. Thank you to my lovely neighbours in Lawrence Park, Leaside, Davisville Village, Bennington Heights, Lytton Park, Moore Park and Rosedale for being the first to sign up.
The response was fantastic and I surpassed my goal and raised $2000 for Sunnybrook Hospital. Families donated directly to the hospital through my Facebook page. It was a great effort and a win-win for everyone. Thank you to all of you for participating!!!
