What we do

Family Portraits

It is our experience that a beautiful portrait is more than an investment of finance; it is an investment of thought, feelings, and time. Our images are always a result of a collaboration of trust with our clients. Our goal is to meet and exceed your expectations.
Once you have chosen Portraits by Johanna, we feel it is important to connect and discuss your portrait session, this is typically done with a scheduled phone call with Johanna. We want to learn about what is most special to your family and discuss location ideas, clothing, and display options. Don't worry, we are full of great ideas! This gallery of family photos may inspire you, but you'll find even more ideas in our children and babies gallery section.

A session fee is due before your portrait session. Prints, frames, and canvases are sold à la carte based on size and quantity. We do not sell digital images from portrait sessions, but you will receive an online-only file of each photo you order for easy sharing on social media. There are no travel fees if your location is within 45 minutes of Truro, NS.
After your session, you will receive a video slideshow to review your images at home. Let's book a time to review the images together at our studio! At this meeting we take it step-by-step to create the perfect presentation of the best images for your home. We want you to love your images and be proud to display them.
