A Lifestyle Session is not like any photography that you’ve experienced. It is deeper, truer and more relaxed. When I come into your family home, I am like an anthropologist searching for clues and looking for the best way to celebrate your family, your home, and your relationships.
I create honest, important photographs of your family history, images that will become more important every day as your family grows and changes.
Our day will be relaxed – there’s usually lots of laughing and snuggling involved. I’m looking for unscripted moments and casual interactions. I focus on what is natural and authentic. If you want photographs that capture the spirit and warmth of your family, you want lifestyle photography.
First, we’ll meet at your home for a Design Session. What you tell me about your family tells me what to look for. We’ll talk about your family and what’s important to you, what kind of photographs you want and how you want to display them, and how to prepare for a session.
I design my sessions around albums. I’m telling the story of your family and the best way to do that is with a collection of images. Clients usually invest in an album, a wall hanging for their home and a few gift prints for family members.
Next comes our Lifestyle Session. I like to start in your home because it says so much about your family. Some families like to spend the entire session at home, while others like to venture out. Think about how you like to spend time together as a family. Shopping in Old Town then having dinner and cocktails; playing board games then swimming in the backyard pool; going to the Farmers’ Market, riding bikes, then cooking dinner at home: these are all possibilities. It is your life – there are no wrong answers.
At the end of our session, clients often say, “That was so easy!”
A few weeks after our session, we’ll meet again in your home for your ordering session and you’ll see your images for the first time. It’s always exciting to sit down and watch your slideshow and see what we’ve created together. It’s emotional to see your family portrayed in images; usually it produces a happy combination of laughter and tears.
