With a passion for capturing innate beauty and human connection, family photography sessions are some of my favorite bookings. From madly-in-love couples with young children to annual fall portraits, or the inclusion of pets, I offer uniquely tailored sessions that bring your family’s story and vision to life.

With infinite possibilities on locations, art direction, styling, and logistics, your family portrait sessions by Lily Laidlaw are designed to create an incredible experience for both adults and children. The perfect way to mark every milestone, family photography gives you beautiful tokens to look back on and remember for years to come.

Capture Your Family’s Authentic, Loving

I am very comfortable tailoring my technique and focus throughout a shoot.  You will receive a gallery of images to choose your favourites from, and those will be delivered as your final gallery portraits. From different angles, poses, outfits, and more, I want you to look back and smile at how unique your family is. I deliver what is important to you. 

A Range Of Images To Choose From 

Love Your Picture Results With

I offer multiple collections to help you select a session that is perfect for your vision and needs. I am also happy to create a custom collection to fit your unique needs. Please send me a message via my contact form to learn more!

Unique, Individually Designed Collections

Adore Your Photos With

In order to deliver stunning images that chronicle your most cherished life moments, I'll help you and your loved ones get comfortable in front of the camera. You'll get a short questionnaire ahead of time so that I can get to know you and your unique situation, and I take time to help you warm up when we arrive on-location. I also send out family style guides to help you prepare for your closeup!

Full Communication During Sessions

Feel Comfortable With

Making time for a family photography session every year or every few years can be a fun way to ensure there is no gap between early years and high school graduation. Depending on your family’s size and desired shoot style, each session will be different and unique to your needs and desires. Throughout the entire process, I work with you to make sure these family images are something you can proudly share and hold on to.

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”

I have created a number of offerings below that are suitable for most families. If you require an extended session with more than 5 people, I will create a custom proposal for you. Each collection includes a base number of images for you to view and select from the proof gallery. Once you choose your preferred images, I will complete the editing and deliver the final image gallery within a few weeks' time. Additional images can be purchased at the time the proof gallery is presented, and a number of beautiful heirloom print products can also be selected from our online fine-art shop.

I am willing to travel anywhere for family sessions, however, this may incur a small travel fee beyond 30 km, which is based on the specific location.

How far are you willing to travel and what are your travel fees?


Frequently Asked Questions



I can offer as little or much styling input as you would like. I also have a prep & styling guide that will help you with all of the decisions you need to make for your family portraits. 

Do you offer styling tips?


Frequently Asked Questions



I offer studio sessions or in the comfort of your home. For children, it is often beneficial to be in their element or to bring along their favourite toys/stuffies. I allow extra time for all family sessions to ensure adequate breaks. For those who are camera shy, I try to capture them in a natural way, without the pressure!

How do you handle upset or tired children, as well as people that are shy in front of the camera?
