Lifestyle Sessions

Lifestyle sessions are a beautiful, simple, and unique way to capture your family and special moments, in a relaxed and natural way. These sessions differ from my studio style sessions because instead of the focus of the session being on those perfect images of people smiling in the camera and perfectly posed newborns, the focus is shifted to the moments and the emotions in that moment. It’s letting things naturally happen (sometimes with a little prompting to get the ball rolling), and capturing those moments that you will cherish and remember.

These sessions are best captured in your home, but they can also be achieved in studio, and outdoors is also a great option. They are also a great option if you want family photos, or even photos of yourself and you are uncomfortable staring into the camera and posing. Let me capture you and your family in a more relaxed, and natural way.

These sessions come from the heart. And they can be personalized so easily to you and yours! Does your child have something they always do like sit in a special spot to read a book? Do they hang upside down on the couch to watch tv? Do you long to capture your child singing and dancing along while you or your significant other plays the guitar? Do you want to capture story time or bath time, or your child splashing in those backyard puddles? These are all moments I would love to capture for you. The possibilities are endless!

I know many of you will be thinking “well my home just isn’t big enough” or “my home isn’t all bright and airy” or “my house is too messy”. While you may believe this to be true it is likely not the case! Most homes I can work within. It’s extremely rare your home wouldn’t be large enough for me to work in. Your home doesn’t have to be bright and airy! Sometimes darker homes bring out those more classic and emotional images, and if bright and airy is what you are after, outdoors, a family member’s house, or even the studio can still work! And your house will never be “too messy/cluttered”. Only the rooms we will be using need to be tidy and I have lots of sneaky tips and tricks for quick decluttering.

With my lifestyle sessions, My goal is to tell your story. That exact moment in time for your family. Because of this, these sessions are photographed a little different, and the end result is a little different. These sessions I don’t limit to just 10 or 25 images. I personally take the time and attention to cull through and choose the images that tell your story. All those perfect and imperfect moments. These sessions work for any type of session including newborn, maternity, family, toddlers, milestone sessions, babies, children, even your own personal hobbies!

With these sessions I am happy to do a free consultation either in person, or via phone or email to discuss your ideas, your concerns, and see if a lifestyle session will work for you.
