Lifestyle Photography Creates Quality Family Memories That Last

Imagine a photo shoot that enables you to simply be yourself without any distractions. Well, lifestyle photography gives you that opportunity! Instead of venturing to an unfamiliar studio setting, you can hire a local photographer to visit you in the comfort of your own home.

Doing so helps capture you and your family’s authentic personalities and natural way of life. There’s no need for backdrops or forced poses. In some instances, you don’t even have to smile! You can easily interact and do some of the things you love as if a photographer wasn’t even there.

Why Remember Your Family or Friends This Way?

Lifestyle photography is becoming more and more popular because traditional photo shoots tend to be bland and cheesy. Although social media encourages phony posting, showcasing who we really are is extremely influential. Nobody is the same and there’s no benefit in acting as if we’re all perfect.

Capturing your frequent interactions or day-to-day routine communicates the aura and culture of the home. It also keeps everyone in-the-moment and puts into perspective where you came from or where you’re going in life.

What Are Some Reasons for Lifestyle Photography?

Most people that schedule this type of session are experiencing some sort of major change in their life – like the arrival of a new addition to the family. Believe it or not, this type of transition affects everyone in the household. Although the baby might be the center of attention during this time, lifestyle photography gives everyone a chance to be featured and remembered. Even our furry friends are impacted!

Other reasons to schedule a session may involve a graduation, the purchase of a new home, a promotion or someone else moving into your residence. All of these scenarios are definitely worth remembering for all involved.

Why I Love Lifestyle Portrait Sessions.

By removing the script from a typical photography session, everyone is forced to be themselves – even myself! I like to think I’m a people person, so I tend to fit right in. Since you don’t have to prepare much (besides clean the house haha), I look to create a sporadic, fun-filled environment that we can all enjoy.

Whether you’re reading your toddler a bedtime story, or preparing dinner while everyone awaits – photographing the entire clan in the moment reminds me what family is all about!

When I had my 4th child, our home was full of life. Leading up to her birth, so many things had changed in our family and marriage. My husband and I were both self employed and making major strides in building a legacy for our children. So I decided to do a little lifestyle session that encompassed this. Here are some of the pictures with little Cora.
