Family Photography in Winter
by Storey Wilkins
Congratulations! You have made an excellent choice to have your family photographed this winter.
"Well, you’ve done it again! I went from laughing out loud at some of the true moments that were captured (the ones of us falling over on the bed are classic!!!), to crying at the beauty of my amazing family." Andrea & Ken
For parents across the GTA, who want professional photographs of your family, it's time to get into your own story, I will provide heartwarming photographs capturing the very special love in your life, that you will be proud of today and forever, because I have over 20 years of award winning experience photographing love.
Family portraits are not just photographs, they are acts of love. There is no better way to cherish the present and remember the past.
Professional Photographic Services
I provide a full-service capture-to-print experience so that you can preserve your best memories in both ready-to-share high resolution digital images as well as beautiful custom printed art pieces for you home. All sessions include:
- Private online gallery
- Quick turnaround time and
- Follow up in-person (or on-line) sales meeting to order:
- your favourite framed prints,
- wall art,
- photo stationary, and
- gifts for your loved ones.
Your Choice of Location
I will work both inside your home or cottage and outside in your yard or local park (especially if there is a nice snowfall covering the ground and trees) all while combining modern and fresh ideas to capture each of you in your best light. You will feel the connection and love in your photographs. You will see your family's true beauty, and the background will be personal to you.
Great outdoor family photography for modern and with-it parents is something that very few midtown Toronto photographers do well. I specialize in this by creating top quality images in any outdoor location. Family reunions by the fire, children portraiture, weekend strolls are all wonderful events to have recorded beautifully.
"We can’t speak highly enough about her easy going yet professional demeanor, attention to detail, patience, and flexibility." Nigel & Danielle
A Recipe for Success
Storey's efficient and fun 90-minute lifestyle portrait sessions have three parts (30 minutes each):
- Great Group Portraits (all of you together smiling, looking relaxed and happy in flattering positions)
- Timeless Moments (games, laughs, reading, cuddling, walking, and other fun activities and out takes that capture the essence of your family spirit)
- Adorable Portraits of the Kids (where you get to sit back and watch as I capture priceless expressions and nuances of each of your kids).
Add the Grandparents: Interested in including your parents to join in? Add a 30-minute segment to your session to include your parents for a wonderful three generation portrait.
Anything is possible so if you have an idea in mind for your portrait session just let me know.
Any photographer should be able to produce one cute photo of your child, but can they perform well enough to exceed your expectations in your home environment? Can they tell your story? I can!
To every portrait session I bring:
- 20+ years of experience photographing people in all circumstances including weddings (long considered one of the most challenging forms of photography),
- The patience and understanding of a mom, and
- The 100% guarantee that you will love your photographs.
My goal is to give you a collection of images that will make you so happy you will shed tears. I look forward to creating a wonderful set of photographs for you. From the session to the finished prints, I bring you the art of storytelling so that you can treasure your family’s great moments and share your story for generations to come.
"A look, an expression - pure gold! The proof is in the wondrous looks we get when people see her photos hanging on our wall." David & Stacey
I proudly serve every neighbourhood across the Greater Toronto Area. I am happy to travel to you wherever you are. In the summer months I regularly travel to Muskoka, Georgian Bay, The City of the Kawarthas and Haliburton to photograph families enjoying time together at the cottage.
The months of October and November are the only months to book your family portrait session if you are looking for great and colourful nature in the background. Specifically, if you want to see beautiful yellows, greens, reds and oranges on the trees in the background of your photographs then be sure to schedule your session with Storey during this time. There are some great locations for fall colours across the GTA. I have prepared a list of the best Toronto locations for family photos in the fall.
I have published a list of my 2020 family portrait prices. Contact me to review my pricing and if you don't see what you are looking for in terms of a product, let me know. I am happy to work with you to create custom display solutions for your home or office, and custom gift solutions for your loved ones.

Easy to Order
Four Easy Steps After you Book your Session:
Step 1: Pre-Session Chat
A portrait is about more than simply capturing your likeness. That is why I will schedule a chat with you by phone beforehand to get a sense of your desires and concerns. Together we will create a session plan, where we discuss what to wear, the location for the session, display ideas for your home, and the pricing.
Step 2: Your Portrait Session
We will arrange to hold your session in your home or cottage, or a beautiful park nearby. Using my easy three-part process, you can relax and enjoy spending time with your family while I go about arranging and posing, lighting and finessing, and engaging the kids in play so the session will fly by.
Step 3: The Ordering Appointment
This can be done at your home or by video call about a week after the session. This will be a great opportunity to review the images together so that I can help you select your favourite images and prepare a plan for printing, framing, and hanging them in perfect places around your home. It will be an effortless and enjoyable appointment.
Step 4: Delivery and Installation
The most exciting part of your portrait experience is the arrival of your new artwork. I will deliver everything to your home and if you do not have a professional installer, I will recommend one to you.
