From the moment we connect I made it as easy as possible for you to help create the most timeless, authentic portraits of your family. I know the best locations throughout the Greater Toronto Area and Durham Region. I have a client closet full of beautiful dresses for maternity, non-maternity and girls.

These sessions are about you and your family. The connections you have, the experiences you share. It's amazing what we can create when the session is meaningful to you.
Your session will be full of smiles and laughter. I will guide you into beautiful poses, and then use prompts to illicit natural reactions and authentic smiles. These are the moments you want to remember years from now.
Hey! I'd love to chat with you about what you're dreaming about for your session! Your family is uniquely yours and let's talk about how we can best showcase your connection.
Step 1 of 5
After you book your session I'll send you a session guide full of valuable information on how to prepare you and your family for your session and style tips. I'll also send you a more in-depth questionnaire to understand you and your family more and what your goals are for your session. Any must-have poses you'd love to include? Does your youngest one take a while to warm up but really loves talking about dinosaurs? Let me know!
I also provide you styling advice so that your photos look stunning. I have a client closet that has lots of twirly dresses for little (and big) girls and also some maternity and non-maternity gowns for mamas. You're welcome to any of these during your session!
Your Session Guide
Step 2 of 5
Once your session is booked please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have. Wondering if some outfits you have will work with the location you had in mind? Send me a photo! Remember something you want to share with me to understand my family better? Shoot me an email! Your session will flow more smoothly and everyone will have fun when I really get to know you - trust me, we'll doing lots of that during the session too! The week before your session I'll be in touch via email to confirm the location and time (I"m a compulsive weather-checker).
Keeping In Touch
Step 3 of 5
Now for the fun part! Please plan to arrive approximately 10 minutes early - I know how it is getting kids out of the car and organizing them ("why did you take your socks off?") As you can tell by my portfolio, I adore photos that show connection and emotion. We'll get a few of the "Christmas card photos" - everyone smile and say cheese - out of the way in the beginning, but after that our session will be full of movement and laughter. Mamas, please don't worry about making your kids smile, look a the camera, etc - I was a teacher so I can always bring out my teacher voice if I have to! This is when I want you to just relax and have fun with your family.
Your Portrait Session
Step 4 of 5
You're done! Now go home, relax, and enjoy your family (I can't guarantee and early bedtime unfortunately!) Within two weeks I'll send you your gallery link via email where you can view and download your photos. This is also where you are able to purchase high quality prints, framed art, and wood and metal prints directly from your gallery. I work with a professional printing lab and an always blown away by the difference in prints. Whether you choose to print with me or with your own lab, it is so important not to let your memories simply sit on your computer - print them out, display them - show off your family!

Portrait sessions from 375
As a mama of three I know how busy life can get. It's important to slow down, be present in the moment, and fully enjoy the little moments. From the moment we connect to the time I deliver you your beautiful portraits I want you to know that this is about your unique family - quirks and all! Let's go on an adventure together!
Kristin is the absolute BEST! We have had the pleasure of working with her for a few family photoshoots and she is absolutely amazing! She's super talented and wonderful with my young kids. Kristin is fun, full of energy and made my girls feel comfortable right away. She captured so many gorgeous, candid moments of my family that I will always treasure. Will definitely book Kristin for our next family photoshoot!

I discovered Kristin Sinclair Photography via a community Facebook group I belong to, someone had asked for a photographer recommendation and two different members provided her name. She answered my questions thoroughly, in a friendly and professional way, and took the time to ease any anxiety I had about the shoot (our first time). My daughter warmed to her immediately and even though our baby decided to be miserable that day (it was cold, not entirely his fault), Kristin was still able to get some beautiful shots of him.
We are overjoyed with the results of the photo session, the pictures are gorgeous, were delivered within two days, and we will 100% use Kristin in the future. Book her now. Do it now.

We have had family photo sessions done with Kristin twice now. Her skills are amazing! Everyone who has seen the photos is blown away. She knows some really great locations that are the perfect setting for great photos. She is great at photographing our children and was a absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. She is very efficient in the time it takes to capture the photos, as well as the finishing. Highly recommend Kristin Sinclair Photography for family photos. The walls of our house are loaded with these photos!
