WHAT EXACTLY IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?
Lifestyle photography is the fine art of documenting your everyday life. Once I get to know you a little bit more, we will plan your shoot around your favorite daily activities you don't want to forget with your family.
I DON'T FEEL LIKE A NATURAL IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA...MAYBE THIS ISN'T FOR ME?!
A misconception of lifestyle photography is that people think it is 100% photojournalistic and that there is no posing. My main goal is to make you feel comfortable, and we will start of in a pose and/or scenario that is the most natural for you, and then let everyone interact from there. (Example: If you and your family love to cuddle in bed in the morning watching Saturday Morning cartoons, we will pile everyone in the bed, it's really fun when your littles try to escape and you keep trying to catch them!)
ARE ALL LIFESTYLE SESSIONS LOCATED IN THE HOME?
Lifestyle photography sessions are meant to document a part of your story. I love at home sessions because I feel like everyone gets comfortable quicker. Especially with kids, they will warm up a lot quicker when they are in their element. However, I equally love outdoor sessions. If you and your family frequent biking at a local park, or go out for ice cream every Sunday, those moments are great moments for lifestyle sessions as well.
I WOULD LOVE AN AT HOME LIFESTYLE SESSION, BUT I DON'T THINK MY HOUSE IS PHOTOGENIC...
I must say I have shot in many homes, and I have never come across a home that is impossible to shoot in. You'll be amazed on how great putting a blanket down in front of a window, or a doorway could create the perfect home location.
DO ALL YOUR PACKAGES COME WITH PRINTS?
YES! Part of the experience is getting printed photos. There is nothing like holding your photographs in your hands.
DO I GET THE DIGITAL COPIES?
Yes, I mean prints+digital copies of important moments, talk about marking things off of your to do list!
