Want a session as unique as your family is? Then why use the same backdrop, the same park, the same props, or even the same pose the last family used? Lifestyle photography is the ultimate custom photography experience.
Lifestyle photography is all about families and their real lives. Children wearing their normal clothes, playing with their favorite toys, toting their beloved lovies all over their house. Parents reading a favorite bedtime story, helping bake some delicious cookies, and cuddling on the couch while overlooking the little ones playing. Families doing their thing whether it’s a calm and collected snugglefest or an all-out pillow fight on the parent’s bed.
So you may be looking at your children and your home right now. Kids are running around in their underwear, covered in spaghetti sauce. There’s dishes in the sink and a pile of clothes on the couch. And you might still be in your pajamas. (And let’s pretend I’m not talking about my house right now) You might be thinking why would I ever want this photographed?!?!? One word. Memories. But let’s be honest, you’re not going to shell out your hard earned money to remember the time your angel covered himself and the couch and the wall and the table cloth and 75% of the kitchen floor in peanut butter. That’s another glorious aspect of lifestyle photography. It’s all the best parts of real life. Like those few minutes the house is clean before the toddler tornado rips through it, that day when all the kids coordinate in their cute little outfits that you painstakingly picked out at the mall, and that day when everyone was just happy to be at home together. It’s about losing the distractions and getting to the basics of your family, your personalities, and your unique kind of love in a way you could never get at a traditional photo session.
Just because posts are no fun without pictures, here’s a small representation of lifestyle photography. This my boys and me doing what we do best, being our lovable, cuddly, silly selves.
