Lifestyle FAQ

Lifestyle FAQs

Precious Family Photos

What is your style?

Dramatic, timeless and natural.

What do you strive for during a lifestyle session?

I want my clients to look at their photographs and remember the moments as genuine and real. I want to have fun and I want you to have fun!

Do you deliver every image that you shoot?

Duplicate images, test shots and photos with unflattering expressions will be discarded. I will never withhold an image that I feel my clients will appreciate.

Can I order photos through you?

Certainly! I have found a print lab that will not disappoint. You can order prints and other photo products through your gallery. I encourage my clients to spend a little extra to get top quality.

Can we print the images ourselves?

Although you have the go-ahead to take your photos to a print shop, I highly recommend you using the printing service I provide. It’s always a shame to see photographs finished poorly. Your vibrant, 3-dimensional photographs could end up looking dull and flat if you take them into a nonprofessional print lab.

Do we receive the digital files?

Yes! You will be granted access to a password protected, online gallery where you can download your photos. You will also be able to send this gallery to your friends and family so they can download the images too! The gallery has a cart ordering system and gives you the opportunity to order photographs if you wish.

How many photos will we receive?

Generally I deliver 50+ photos per hour that is photographed.

Do you offer albums?

You bet! My job is not complete without making you an heirloom that you will cherish for the rest of your lives. You can be as much or as little involved in the album design process as you want. I take a lot of pride in my albums. The paper quality is amazing, but what really gets me excited is how true to colour the prints are to your computer screen. What you see on your computer is what you are going to get, unlike most albums where the colour is very dull. I do offer parent albums, which are a bit smaller and thinner. Check out the Albums page to learn more.

What is involved in making the album?

I first ask you to select your favourite images. I will use these photos as a starting point while designing the layout. The layout will be sent to you for confirmation. I will update any changes that you wish to make. I will then help you select an album cover material.

Will my digital images be watermarked?

Absolutely not! You will have beautiful, ready to print images, free of any watermarking!

Is there somewhere I can go to see reviews on your photography services?

Yup! Visit my Reviews page or head over to google and type in Kristen Borelli Photography. You will find countless reviews from my past clients.

Lower Mainland Photographers

Does our collection include full colour and black and white pictures?

This really depends on the session. Usually I include most photos in colour and some in black and white. There are certain times where you will get the same photo in black and white and colour.

How long will it take to receive our digital photos?

You will see a "sneak peek" within a week. Your full gallery will be delivered 2-3 weeks following your session via an online gallery. You will then have downloading access and the chance to purchase prints, albums and other fun keepsakes if you wish!

How can I share my photos?

Easy! The online gallery that I send to you can simply be forwarded to your family and friends. They will have downloading access as well as the option to order through my online store.

Do you edit all of your photographs?

Yes! I carefully edit each and every photo that is handed to you. This means that the photographs will have my signature post-production workflow applied to them. I never apply the same edit to a grouping of photographs. I believe in paying close attention to each and every image. Advanced editing will be done if the client has ordered an album (includes blemishes, fly away hairs etc.).

We aren't engaged, can we still book a shoot?

Of course! Engaged or not, I absolutely love photographing couples in love. I approach an engagement session and a couples shoot in a similar manner. My main goal is to capture what your relationship entails.

Where will our session take place?

Your session will typically be held at an outdoor location which we will decide on together. Generally newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your home.

What should I wear?

Clothing plays a huge part in the outcome of your images. First decide if you want to wear cool tones or warm tones. Stay away from matchy-matchy. Patterns are lovely, just don’t incorporate too many of them. Bring a few options. I would love for you to send a photo of the clothing pieces you have decided on and give you more guidance if needed. Once you decide to book a session with me, I will provide you with more information regarding clothing.

Engagement Photography Locations on Vancouver Island

We are nervous, is that a problem?

No, no, no! I would guess that 99% of my clients have never been photographed before. I am there to help you get the most out of your shoot and will guide you through the whole process.

What is a fresh 48 shoot?

A Fresh 48 shoot is captured within a day or two of delivering your newborn. It will be held at the hospital or wherever else you decided to give birth.

I'm ready to book, now what?

Yay! Visit Contact and fill out the form there! A signed contract and a 50% deposit is required at the time of booking. The remaining fee is due on the session date.
