Of Wild Dawn

Outdoor adventure sessions are definitely my most popular sessions to book! Often sold out within hours of release, outdoor family sessions are the foundation of my business (and are just SO much fun!)

Check out my process and what you can expect from me below

Every session is our own little adventure. 

My client closet is free to borrow from for your outdoor session (not available for mini sessions) The specific items can be seen on my instagram account in a highlight just for you! All edited digital images from your session are included. 

You will choose the vibe or location you want FOREST, FIELD or WATER. These locations are held in and around Ottawa and your specific location will be emailed to you a few days before your session.

When you book your session, you will pay a 50% deposit to secure your date. An invoice will be automatically be sent to you a week prior to your session for the remaining balance. The remaining balance is due 2 days prior to your session.

Each season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) I will release my next session dates to my amazing past clients and my mailing list subscribers.

One thing my clients often tell me is how happy they are that all of the digital images from their session are included. 
I want you to have it all! From beginning to end! Once you receive your online gallery, you will have access to my online store to purchase prints and photo products.
***Mini sessions include 10 images

Always All inclusive

My goal is always to prepare you very well for your session. After booking, a personalized Welcome Guide with a TON of helpful information on how to make the most of your session, will be sent to you.  It will contain links to my client closet and seasonal 'What to Wear Guide' + Style and Select.

I'll set you up

Set your alarms for the next release date! Right now the next release day will be Spring and Summer and dates will be released to my past clients and those on my mailing list before the general release.

Crystal has photographed my family several times and we could not be happier with both the process and the outcome. She was amazing with my kids and they had an absolute blast and it shows in the photos. We have them all over our house and get compliments every time. She is so passionate about what she does and I look forward to many more sessions with her. I would recommend her a million times over!

She is so passionate about what she does

Crystal is an AMAZING photographer! I’ve had multiple sessions with her and I’m always so happy with our family photos. She’s great at capturing those sweet and sometimes silly family moments. She is great with my girls, very sweet and calm energy which makes you feel comfortable I would 110% recommend her for your family photos.
