Home, Sweet Home!
As winter creeps in around us, it’s the time of year where lifestyle sessions become really popular. I absolutely love working with families to capture lifestyle sessions at home – whether it’s a family session or newborn portraits. Lifestyle sessions are the perfect way to capture your family in the place that means the most to you: home!
The best part of a lifestyle session at home? You don’t have to go anywhere! No traffic to beat, no worrying about car seats and crumpled outfits; much less stress over all. I come to you! This is especially great when you have a new baby. Being able to be at home, in your comfort zone, means everyone is much more relaxed from the start. Kids are most comfortable when they’re somewhere they’re familiar with – so sessions often start off a little bit easier. When everyone is less worried and stressed, the session is much happier overall. Plus, with easy access to toys, their favorite snacks, and comfortable places to lounge, there are so many options for activities to do and places to snuggle!
Another benefit of an indoor lifestyle session has to be the temperature! Especially this time of year, cold kids tend to lose their patience with the camera a LOT faster. Let’s be honest! Being inside, in the cozy warmth of home keeps everyone happier (and no one gets a Rudolph nose!). We can have a great time capturing your family snuggled up in your favorite blanket, reading stories, munching on some seasonal snacks, or even burning some energy and jumping on your bed. Babies can stay cozy in their cribs or warm nurseries. Even your fur babies can join in the fun!
Finally, there’s really nothing as special as capturing photos of your family in the place you call home. Being able to look back over the years and see how your family has grown into the place you love most is amazing. You spend so many hours and days in these rooms every year – why shouldn’t we document your family in your home? Capturing a lifestyle session is truly about capturing your family naturally. Maybe that’s all about your favorite holiday tradition, baking up some yummy snacks, or just staying warm and cozy all together. Whatever it is you love to do, let’s keep those memories preserved forever!
Lifestyle sessions can be booked all winter long (and even in non-winter months, especially for those babies!). If you’re thinking about scheduling a lifestyle session, contact me today! I’d love to chat more about what makes your home and family special – and how we can best capture that for your family.
