Lifestlye Photography

By The Chaotic Creative

Your memories are important to us

We know how important capturing memories and milestones are to you. We've spent years working with families and couples capturing their special moments and creating works of art for them to enjoy and pass down for generations. We specialize in creating family heirlooms like Canvases, Albums and UV Protective Coated Prints. 

Having been working with people as unique as you for over 10 years, you can be confident in us, and our passion to bring out the YOU in our work together. 

A photoshoot for you and your partner or family should never be a chore... it should be an experience you can't wait to have! We work closely with you to plan out every detail of your session from location, style (we'll even help you style your wardrobe!), to getting to know who you are and have that reflected in your artwork without the need for props and extras! 

We have a timeless film-like style with great contrast and deeper colours. We call ourselves 'EMOTIVE PHOTOGRAPHERS' as it is our goal to give prompts and direction that will get you interacting with one another naturally. So if you're looking for grandma's portrait where everyone looks at the camera and says cheese.. sorry! That's not us! We want the chaos of your kids running around making a mess.. and don't you ever be sorry about it parents! We want the heart-flutters of love and for you lovebirds to not hold back or feel awkward showing each other how much your love means to you - in front of the camera! Give us real. Give us Raw. We're here for it!

When you book your session now - You will receive not only 50% OFF your initial session fee, but you will also receive [1] 8x10 Heirloom Quality UV coated keepsake print! (Value of $65) [OR you can instead use your session fee as a credit towards a larger collection purchase]

 It's a no-risk investment in your memories... and you are guaranteed to have beautifully tangible memories of you and your loved ones to pass down for generations! 

I do need to clarify though, there is no obligation to purchase additional photos! We have this option because we stand behind our keepsake products and know they are handcrafted to stand the test of time. It's well worth the investment in your own family heirlooms! If you choose to only walk away with only the complimentary print, that's okay too. We keep your online proofing gallery active for 14 days following your in-person reveal session so that you and your family are able to make any additional print or digital purchases right online through your gallery for your convenience!


This is our opportunity to show you what we're all about.


Offering a softer, film-like style in our perfect blend of candid and "un-posed" Lifestyle/Portrait Photography (and Lifestyle Video!) we know that we will capture you and your partner and/or family at your most authentic selves.


It's our goal and PASSION to show you your true connections through our lens. We have clients whom we've worked with for years capturing their life journeys in all their beautiful intricacies. We hope you will trust us to document a small moment for you now, on this upcoming family day holiday...and maybe we'll be helping you document all the important moments in YOUR lives, for years to come. 


 We offer our unique quality and vision, as a lower up-front investment for the quality we offer.. so that in the end you are putting your hard-earned dollars towards what artwork and family memoirs REALLY matter to YOU!


Yes, there's your catch...


When you work with us (LJ and her team of creatives) you've just been welcomed into a crazy bunch of folx who love to laugh, drink copious amounts of tea and who are just as excited for your milestones as we are of our own and our closest friends and family. 

So before you click 'book your date/time' - let us just say "Welcome to the family"

LJ captured maternity and family photos for me, and we were blown away at the gorgeous colours that came through. They were so well planned down to the little details and are just stunning. LJ was a joyful pleasure to work with. She is so friendly and creative...we can't wait to have more photos done!

We recently had a family photoshoot with LJ  and we couldn't be happier with the results! LJ was so much fun to work with - she was great with our baby and toddler, and not afraid to act silly to get them smiling! She was so patient with the little ones and even scheduled extra time to accommodate their needs! And the pictures turned out beautifully! Thank you LJ for capturing stunning photos of our family and our kids being kids.
