If you follow my work on Facebook or on my blog, you have most likely seen lots of fun studio and outdoor themed sessions. And yes, they are FUN!! But they certainly are not your only option for family portraits. Have you ever considered a lifestyle session?
Lifestyle sessions focus more on documenting your family doing the seemingly mundane, every day activities, with minimal posing. Real life is true, honest and beautiful. Those authentic moments that occur in your daily routines are memories to cherish. Life is all about those moments; the laughter, the love and the time together.
An in-home lifestyle session is a great setting because it’s where you spend most of your time with your family & friends. You are most likely more relaxed and comfortable in your own environment than in a studio, and that comfort allows true personalities to shine through. It also means not needing to leave your house, mess with nap time routines or try to coordinate fancy outfits.
Although I am referring specifically to in-home lifestyle sessions, they can also take place outdoors. Say your family is big into baseball - why not head out to a ball diamond and play while I snap away?!! Or take a family hike and play capture the flag - I promise not to cheat! It’s all about documenting the real life moments that you share with your family and/or friends. These lifestyle sessions are equally as great for couples, a group of high school friends or families-to-be, and as always, you have the option to keep your images 100% private.
BONUS: Lifestyle sessions tell a beautiful story... YOUR story. And every great story deserves to be published! So, I include a custom photo book with all edited photos from your lifestyle session in the session fee so you can cherish these memories and share with family and friends.
