My clients have often heard me refer to my family photography style as “lifestyle”. You might be thinking, “What exactly is lifestyle photography?” Lifestyle sessions are different from typical portrait sessions because they capture not only what you looked like, but what it felt like to be apart of your family that day. Your family is made up of so many beautiful details that are unique to your story + your season of life. I want to bring those moments to life and freeze them in time through a photograph. These images are permanent keepsake for your children and your children’s children.
Why lifestyle sessions for families?
My favorite cliche is “The days are long, but the years are short.” I find this so true and know from personal experience that my mommy heart wants so desperately to stop time from slipping through my fingers. No matter how hard I try it keeps slipping through faster and faster. Where did the baby years go? When was the last time I was able to pick up my boys and hold them? When did they get as tall as me? How did they hold my hand when they were toddlers? These are all of the stories that I capture for my clients. I want you to have all of these beautiful memories because your deserve to have your story told.
What is a typical lifestyle session like?
Lifestyle sessions focus on genuine fun + simple joy. I love to photograph families having fun together in a relaxed environment. I rarely ask families to look at the camera. Instead, I am guiding them into moments and capturing all of the tender interactions with each other. Laughter, motion, hugs and kisses are all there in one session. It is my job gently to guide you and then step back and let your family come alive to tell your story.
Capture your own memories with a lifestyle session!
With the holiday season around the corner I urge you to consider investing in a lifestyle session as a gift for your loved ones. This is a unique gift that cannot be found in a box store or Amazon. It will stand the test of time long after the toys have been donated, the clothing is out of style and technology is outdated. Your season of life is beautiful and it deserves to be celebrated with beautiful photos! Contact me if you would like more info on family sessions or gift cards!
Enjoy these images of this beautiful family of five! They stole my heart the other night.
