My approach is a mix of posed and lifestyle. What does this mean? I am a storytelling photographer that likes to focus on family interactions with a few posed pictures of everyone smiling. I love my families to be relaxed and having fun together. Everyone looking is nice, but real life moments are what matter.
Think back to your childhood pictures. How many of them are you as a family having fun? Are their pictures of you with your dad laughing while making breakfast? Or your mom and you snuggling on the couch. Most likely not. Most o my childhood pictures are of my sister, brother, & I dressed up and smiling at the camera on either a birthday, Easter, or Christmas. Lifesyle is the real moments. The ones you want to remember and document. The ones you want to children to look and remember the everyday. The time in your life you want to look back on to and relive in photos.
It tells your family’s story.
The whole family interacting together in pictures. (With a few of everyone looking.)
The ideal location is your home (so you can have a session anytime of the year) and shoes are optional!
Your family is captured by an artistic professional.
Lifestyle photography is my favorite photography. Maybe because it captures real unposed moments. Maybe it is because it captures true family connections. Maybe it is because it is the type of photography I take as a mom for my children. It captures the type of pictures I as a mom want my girls to look back on and see how much they were loved. I offer lifestyle and family sessions. Below is a little more information on what type of session I do.
Lifestyle newborn sessions are a relaxed way to capture your new baby at home. We will capture your baby in the nursery, swaddled on the bed, with pets, siblings, etc. Sessions are held normally when baby is between 7-10 days old. It is a perfect way to capture your growing family as you are now. Siblings also do well with these type of sessions because they are in their own home. This type of session allows for organic and authentic moments. There is very little to no posing with lifestyle newborn sessions. It is very relaxed with light direction allowing for natural connections and real interaction.
Maternity sessions are offered as an add on to newborn sessions. Please contact Elise for more information.
Lifestyle family sessions typically take place in the home or your yard. Here we tell the your family story in the comfort of your home. The goal is to capture your family, just as you are, doing what you normally do, activities, etc. One of my favorite type of session for lifestyle is morning breakfast. What Saturday morning routine do you have? Making pancakes, dad bringing home doughnuts, etc. Capture that time together so you can always remember how special those moments were.
Lifestyle baby/child sessions typically take place in the home. Here we tell the your baby/child(ren)’s story in the comfort of your home. These are perfect for baby milestones or birthdays. Typically it captures your child, just as they are, doing what they love to do. That might be having a tea party, playing on the bed, reading a book, in the crib, playing in their room, etc. These sessions focus mainly on the child/children with one or two pictures with mom and dad.
