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 collaboration and 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. We want to learn about what is most special to your family and discuss location ideas, clothing, and display options. Summer and fall sessions are in high demand, so please book early to avoid disappointment. 

A session fee of $75 plus tax is due the day of your portrait session. There are no travel fees if your location is within 45 minutes of Truro, NS. Prints, frames, and canvases are sold à la carte* based on size and quantity. We do not sell digitial images from portrait sessions. However, you will receive a low resolution file of each photo you order for sharing online.

After your session, you will receive a video slideshow to review your images at home. Then we review the images together and take it step-by-step to create the perfect presentation of the best images for your home. We simply want you to love your images and be proud to display them.
