Lifestyle sessions are typically considered "lifestyle" when they are 1) in the home of the client and 2) authentically capturing your life "as is" meaning, not staged. I LOVE lifestyle sessions because I think having an outsider capture a bit of your everyday life is priceless. We typically go through the motions and those motions can seem a bit ... "mundane" to us as time passes. But in reality, all of these little things add up to one great big life of goodness. These little moments make us who we are, and are the foundations of memories for our littles.
Home is really at the HEART of our livelihood. So, it makes sense to capture your life there. I don't think EVERY session needs to be in your home or be lifestyle, but once in a while, it's good thing.
For this family - we had done their newborn shoot in their home (which I always recommend) and then we chose together to do the one year shoot there as well. I LOVED THIS IDEA. And, I loved the thought of recreating similar situations to do a little comparison. There is nothing I love more than a "look at how far we've come" photo moment!
Sweet Noah has grown into a handsome toddler. Just look at that bowtie swimming on him at his newborn shoot and now barely fits! I LOVE this! It is such clear mark on just how much can change in one year!
Often lifestyle is used with new babies. I'd like you to consider a lifestyle shoot at any moment in time. In fact, I'm considering that for my family shoot this spring. People naturally feel most relaxed and at home in their own environment!
