Portrait - Michael Lalonde Photography

Family, Children, Portraits and More

My mission at Michael Lalonde Photography is to capture your personality in a fun and creative style and to provide clients with beautiful images that they will treasure for life. I offer a variety of session options. These include either an indoor session in my home in Barrhaven or a  session on location in an area of your choice. This could be in your home, yard or perhaps a favorite park. If you have something special in mind, let us know and we can create a custom session for you!

On Location

Whether you wish to have portraits done in your house, around your property, in an urban area or country setting. I will find a way to make photographs you'll love in an environment that will make you feel comfortable. All the professional equipment can be brought to the location of your choice. All you have to do is be yourself. Not sure where you would like to have your photos? Not a problem, I have suggestions depending on the time of year and and the look you want. A portrait session can last anytime between 30 minutes and 2 hours. The final price is determined by: Travel, time on location, number of photo to edit and the items you wish to purchase afterwards (list available upon request). Portrait sessions start at 120$.

What to Expect

The first step in the process is to have a pre-session consultation. This can be done either in person or over the phone. During this time we will discuss your personal interests and the people you want to include in the session. We will also discuss your desires and vision of your finished artwork and choose a time and place for your session.

Because everybody is unique, every session is different. While I work hard to fulfill the visions of my clients, I also find that it often works best to go with the flow of your personality. Many of my clients’ favorite images are captured from those moments when they are just doing what comes naturally and may be very different from the client’s original vision. The best images are created when you are relaxed and comfortable!

Upon completing your session, we will schedule an ordering appointment, usually about 1-2 weeks after the session. During this time, you will view your professionally edited proofs and I will help you make design and product decisions. We will review the options for displaying your finished artwork and obtaining the the digital negatives you want.  If you have a particular spot in your home where you would like to display your artwork, it is helpful to snap a picture of the space. Your finished portraits will be available for pickup approximately 10-14 days after your order is placed.

We start with some birthday portraits, and then bring in the cake towards the end of the session and let them get messy! You never quite know how each birthday boy or girl will react to having a  big cake placed in front of them.
