Lucy Baum Montreal Family Photography specializes in families who don’t want a typical photo experience – overly posed, grumpy kids, exasperated parents, uncomfortable clothes (for parents AND kids!!) Offbeat, silly and playful are three words that describe her style – and ‘unfussy’ if that’s really a word. When your family is relaxed and sharing great moments, Lucy is at her best and strives to capture those connections in a creative and thoughtful way. She’ll do what it takes – she’s ruined shoes in mud to get the right shot!

Opt into a custom experience that works for your family. Lucy comes to your home or other memorable location, and works (plays) with you and your children to bring out your authentic and best selves. Warning – she may bring bubbles.

Start at and watch Lucy’s new behind the scenes promo video, where you can see her in action shooting a family that she met through West Island Mommies, and with whom her family has become great friends. You can also send an email to
