FAQs

WHERE AND WHEN?

Check out the home page of this website to see if any Pop Ups are currently booking. Don't see anything? Sign up to my newsletter below.

Sessions can take place anywhere but are currently being held at the Hey Maca studio in St-Henri.

HOW MUCH AND WHAT DO I GET?

Sessions are $180 + tax and payment must be received up front to confirm your booking.

Each session includes a 20 minute portrait shoot with Michelle (me!), a private gallery with 20+ photo proofs, and 5 digital images for download.

Additional images can be purchased.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PROOFS?

Proofs will be delivered via email 2-3 weeks after the session.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?

Once you book I'll include this information via email. In general, neutrals, subtle print and patterns are great. Avoid large logos.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

100% refund within 2 weeks of date of session

50% day of session

The non-refundable portion of the deposit can be put towards a regular family/newborn/maternity session within the year.

Pop Up sessions can also be gifted or re-sold.

WHAT IF MY CHILD MISBEHAVES OR TAKES A LONG TIME TO WARM UP?

These are discounted, 20 minute sessions. If you feel your child needs extra time to warm up I recommend a full length session as there are no refunds. Having said that, I've photographed over 100 family Pop Up sessions and am pretty good at working with kids. I've never walked away from a session without a set of photos I could give to the parents. I wouldn't recommend these sessions for a newborn.

CAN I BRING ALONG MY COUSINS, GRANDPARENTS, BROTHERS FAMILY, ETC?

If you want to bring along grandparents that's fine but please let me know. We'll discuss what is realistic to expect in a 20 minute session. If you want an extended family session, that's fine but you will have to book multiple, concurrent sessions. Please contact me.

DOES YOUR HOLIDAY PORTRAIT POP UP HAVE A CHRISTMAS THEME?

The 2019 Pop Up has a classic grey background but props are on hand and can be added to make it feel more holiday. You can also bring your own props.

WHEN IS YOUR NEXT POP UP?

Please check the home page of this website. If nothing is shown, please sign up to my newsletter.

WHAT PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT?

I aim for family photos, individual children, siblings together, siblings with partner 1, siblings with partner 2, and the partners together (if applicable). I have had people who have just come for photos of just their kids too.

WHAT DOES THE SET/BACKGROUND LOOK LIKE?

It changes so make sure that you confirm before you book that you are OK with the colour and setup. I am hoping to do a collaboration with HeyMaca for my next Motherhood Portrait Pop Up and maybe next year do a more holiday themed set up just to switch things up.

TESTIMONIALS

These are so gorgeous. Yes, they are studio but studio taken to the next level! I was a bit stressed on arrival because we were running late but we all look totally relaxed thanks to you!

- Allison Kurz

Thank you so much Michelle, I am loving the pictures!

Thanks for being so patient with us, it's not always easy to control 3 kids 6 and under, so your kindness and calmness was so much appreciated! Count us in for your next mini-holiday session, we want for sure to do it again.
