Something that I’m going to put out there on the line and admit right now is.. Last year, I was stuck.
I felt like I was photographing so many families but being my own worst enemy and critic, I wasn’t happy.
I never had a real reason why, I loved the images and getting to spend time with other families always inspires me. But, something was missing.
I wasn’t capturing the emotion that I wanted, and that was alllll me. I spend hours with beautiful families and I felt like I wasn’t doing them justice.
That’s where Lifestyle photography came in. Which, I really need to come up with a new name because I feel like this one has been beat to death, all with different definitions.
Let’s call it, “Photos you want to have because these are your memories, and hey mom! Get in that shot for once”
I’ll think of something better later….
Anyways, and let me tell you now, I’m horrible at explaining things. Especially things I love because I get excited and I ramble..
What is Lifestyle Photography to me?
Simply put, it’s your family. I come into your home (or a place you spend a bunch of time as a family) with no expectations. Kids will cry, fight and most likely not listen. (isn’t that normal?)
I don’t want you to stress. Just relax and know that I’m not freaking out and things will be ok.
I capture you guys. Playing your favorite game, with your favorite toys, or running around outside.
In the end, you’ll walk away with photos that you’ll cherish.
Time doesn’t wait for anyone. Even in the thick of newborn parenting when all you do is feel tired and change diapers, time moves on and babies grow. My son is finishing Kindergarten next month, I remember the constant nursing, no sleep, and pajama only days as if they were yesterday, but even being a photographer (a lousy one at the time) I was never in the photos. Judging by the prints it was him and his dad through it all together. Although, Mamas. It’s us and them, 99% of the time.
This is your chance to get in those images too, fill your walls, make an album that yells “Hey! It’s me, Mom! I was there too!!”
So the most common question I get besides “How much is it?” is “What do I get?”
Here’s what you get – Up to 2 hours of my time to photograph your family at the location of your choice. You’ll also get, an edited gallery of your images, mostly colour with some black and white mixed in. There are no limit to the images you receive. Anywhere from 60-100, but it could be more.
If you’re thinking, what am I going to do with all those photos?! Easy. Cherish them. Print them. Reminisce. You could also get me to put together your very own personal album. A solid piece of evidence that you were there too and when things feel chaotic, a reminder that life is still beautiful.
Here’s another reminder. My sessions right now are still $225. Albums starting at $125.
My session prices are going to go up, soon, but if you book now, you’ll be locked into the original price.
Also, here’s another note. I’m giving away a session on my Facebook page.
AND it also comes with an album.
Draw will be done on Mother’s Day.
