Stress Free Lifestyle Photography Session

The Photography Every Family’s Been Looking For

How does a family photography session with no stress or anxiety sound? Probably impossible! Well let me tell you it’s very possible with these two words, lifestyle photography.

Lifestyle photography is probably something you’ve heard thrown around a lot these days. But do you truly know what it means?

A lifestyle session is defined as “a kind of photography that mainly aims to capture portrait/people in situations, real-life events or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The primary goal is to tell stories about people’s lives or to inspire people in different times.”

The Stress Is Real

I’ve been a photographer and mother for a while now so I know how stressful a photography session can be on a family.First you have to do your research to find the best photographer for you (I’ll explain more on this in a future post). Then you debate on whether it’s worth the investment of your hard earned money.

After booking your session you have instant buyers remorse because you’re still not sold that this photographer will be able to capture YOUR family.

Next you spend hours of searching for the perfect outfit that goes well together but isn’t too matchy matchy.

Now it’s the day of the shoot. Your kids don’t want to take their naps so now you know they’re going to be a hot mess come shoot time.

Fast forward, it’s 6:00pm, you need to be out the door but your baby just had a blow out which means another outfit change.That’s when you notice your oldest doesn’t even have their shoes on.

By the time you get to the shoot everyone is already over it and the session hasn’t even started!

This is Why I Never Take My Clients for Granted

Trust me, I get it. This is why I never take my clients for granted. Getting pictures taken with a young family is hard. But you know it needs to be done because they grow up so fast and you want to remember them when they were this age.

THIS is why lifestyle sessions are the absolute best. Once you break down WHY you want these pictures you soon realize you just want to remember their sweet chubby cheeks, toothless smiles and tiny hands. You want to remember what it was like when they were small enough to hold in your arms.

Don’t get me wrong I absolutely LOVE doing family photography sessions. I love creating and directing my clients to get the perfect shot. But there is something so beautiful about a lifestyle session.

So take the stress and the feeling of needing to look perfect and  “let it go” as Elsa would say. These pictures will be ones you cherish for a lifetime and your kids will cherish them too.

Let me capture the mess, the real. Keep the toys sprawled out all over their bedroom or the mismatched socks your daughter put on when she dressed herself. There is so much beauty in the imperfect. Let me help you to never forget these little moments.
