With the weather being colder a lot of people forgo typical photo sessions to stay inside. If you have a new baby or younger children it only makes sense, but did you know that a lifestyle session can be just as much fun as an outdoor session?
What is lifestyle photography?
Lifestyle photography is a style of photography that aims to capture people and document real life events, situations, or milestones in an artistic manner.
When you book a lifestyle session with me I will come to your home and capture quiet moments with you and your family while you go about your typical routine. These photos are rarely posed and generally capture your family for who you are and how you love. A lot of people shy away from lifestyle sessions because they think their house has to be immaculate, or big and beautiful. That is not the case. I don’t photograph your home. I photograph the life and the love that your family shares.
Here are just a few of the photographs I have captured recently of my children, to give you an idea of what lifestyle photography is all about.
This picture is very special to me. The stuffed animal that my son is holding was given to him in the hospital when he was born four years ago. My daughter picked it out for him. He sleeps with it every night. In ten years this photo will be such a great reminder of how small he used to be.
I just love his tiny feet in this one, and if you look up on his lap, you can see the stuffed animal again.
A shot of my beautiful daughter before school on Valentine’s Day
My son dressed himself in a pair of rock star Converse, jeans, a shirt that said “Here Comes Trouble” and a gray and black striped necktie. He looked so adorable that I couldn’t help but snap a photo.
Laughing and telling secrets by the Christmas tree. This will definitely serve as a reminder to them as teenagers that they used to like each other. 🙂
Little hands…who doesn’t love them?
And finally…once my daughter becomes a teenager, this will be a reminder of how tiny she used to be. I also love the boots that have become her typical fashion statement.
