What exactly is a “lifestyle” session?
Lifestyle is a way to describe a photography style that falls between posed portraiture and documentary photography. For a family, I will typically suggest loose poses or an activity and then ask you to interact naturally while I capture the moments that happen.
Where will the session take place?
A lifestyle newborn session will be in your home, with a few photos outdoors depending on weather. For a family with older children, the session can take place in and around your home or at an outdoor location such as a park. Portraits of an individual child can be done indoors or out. I have several locations I like to use, but am also open to suggestions for places that are significant to your family or child.
How long does a session last?
It depends a bit on the type of session and how many people are involved. An average lifestyle newborn session will last around 90 minutes, an outdoor family portrait session will be around 60-90 minutes, and a single child portrait session is usually around 60 minutes depending on age and location.
