Lifestyle Portraits

 

Bring in the Styling, maintain the Emotion

Lifestyle photography is a beautiful mix of posed family portraits and full-on documentary moments. For the most part I focus on the candid moments with minimal direction. I do err on the side of documentary and like to be as raw as possible – I find my clients appreciate the genuine emotive nature of these images. But unlike a documentary session, there is some staging (as we work together to choose clothing and location) and there is some direction from time to time. Many families like to have a few posed portraits as keepsakes.

These sessions are great for getting those posed images for Christmas cards and to send to the grandparents but also getting the candid moments that speak volumes about the relationships we have with our children – the sweet snuggles, the playfulness, the big belly laughs. The gentle pat on the head, holding hands and hugs between siblings. The love is there. I’ll be there to photograph it.

Packages

These portrait packages start include an average one hour of shooting, digital download of 25 images, and can be indoors or outdoors.  These sessions are great for all families but also serve as a great newborn portrait session for those interested in a more relaxed newborn session experience. Due to the weather in the PNW, I limit my lifestyle sessions from April to early October with only 2-3 sessions a month. Book early to get a session!
