Shine Photo is a Boutique Volume Studio. That means we provide a luxury experience, but keep prices low by combining multiple sessions for each of our themed mini photo shoots. 


  • Are 20 minutes in length. 
  • Reservation fee (non-refundable) is $49.00 + HST. 
  • Sessions include one high resolution digital image of your choice unless otherwise stated.
  • Additional product purchases are optional and affordably priced allowing you to purchase only what you need and love without breaking the budget.
  • Proofs are viewed and purchased in your private online gallery.
  • We take an average of 20-25 images per session.

We run sessions back to back so it’s important to be time-conscious.  We recommend arriving 10 minutes prior to your session, and consulting  your maps prior to the visit so you know where to find us and where to park.  🙂

Fusion sessions are 5-10 minutes in length and photographed on grey or green screens. Various options for back grounds are then provided in an online or in-person gallery. Once a backdrop is chosen, the image is hand-edited for the finished product. These sessions are very short, but the post production can be labour-intensive. These sessions are designed to create wall art that you can enjoy for years to come and are not available. Product prices will vary with the various sessions available. Minimum purchase may apply depending on the session.


Black Label Appointments are Shine Photo’s Masterpiece Photo Sessions. The images often have extensive hand-editing, as well as an immersive experience attached to the session. Black Label Sessions are between 30 and 60 minutes in length, and are scheduled for specific days, just like our standard mini sessions. Specialty products, not available with our other sessions, are available for purchase. Product pricing is higher due to the nature of session and the post-production involved in creating the images. A minimum product order of $379.00 before tax is required above the reservation fee. These sessions are designed for our clients who place a high value on the longevity and fine art of their photographic memories. Payment plans are available. For the protection of our clients, Boudoir black label sessons are not pictured here. Please visit us at the studio for samples.
