Find out how an afternoon of running around outside or cuddling on the couch is the best way to capture the true spirit of your family. A lifestyle session aims to capture the everyday moments in a beautiful way. Lifestyle photography aims to capture the essence of you and your family, with minimal posing and no additional props. Though these kinds of sessions are photographed very organically in a non-structured way, we’ll still spend a few minutes getting a coupe of shots with everyone looking and saying cheeeese! :)

Frequently asked questions
HOW LONG IS A LIFESTYLE SESSION?
Lifestyle sessions are up to 60 minutes. If your session is taking place indoors, your session will be scheduled between 9 am - 5 pm. If you shoot will be at an outdoor location, your session will be scheduled 1.5 hours before sunset (so we have the best light of the day).
WHERE SHOULD WE TAKE OUR PHOTOS AT?
Lifestyle sessions take place at a variety of locations including outdoor locations (weather permitting) and inside your family home (perfect for newborn sessions). Not sure what spot is best for you? I have an amazing list of places that are gorgeous outdoor locations.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
I watch (i.e. stalk) the weather the week of your session. 24 hours before our shoot, I will email you if the weather looks iffy. If it looks like rain, we will reschedule your session for another day.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
I have an amazing style guide that I will send you prior to your session that gives you a ton of advice. When in doubt, neutrals tend to look best on camera and work well in any location. Try to dress your family in a coordinated style, but avoid looking matchy-matchy. The best way to do this is to pick complimentary colors and styles for your crew.
WHAT IF MY KIDS WON'T SMILE + DO NOT LISTEN?
My style of shooting allows for your kids to just be them and have fun. I encourage my families to run around with their kids, blow bubbles and have tickle fights. I want to capture you and your family as the most authentic version of them, so while I will try my best to get one perfect photo of everyone smiling, the photos you will treasure the most will be the little moments that show your family's true personalities.
WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE PHOTOS FROM OUR SESSION?
You will have your image collection within 3 weeks of your session.
DO WE HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
I highly recommend ordering prints / albums through the studio, but it is not required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so I do encourage clients to order prints through the studio. Your session includes a print release, so you are free to order prints elsewhere.
