The more I photograph, the more I realize that the “nice” picture of everyone sitting/standing perfectly posed and camera-ready smiles is not what makes me tick. I think those pictures have a place. And I think every session should walk away with ONE classic portrait, I don’t believe your whole session should look this way. Because that’s not how your life looks. We are all guilty of curating our “best lives” for social media, and even for the walls in our homes. But what if life isn’t about either/or…what if it’s a both/and?
I’ve been dreaming of ways to make your photo sessions with me feel less “curated” and more like you. Truly, the options are endless. Here are some ideas for y’all. (And if you see one that feels “so you,” email me. If you’re the first to claim, you get $100 off your session!)
Pizza + Beer “picnic”
Baking/Cooking in the Kitchen
Morning Coffee + PJs
Park Play Date
Touring/Working on the Farm
Newborn Nursery + Snuggles
Walk around the block (or the trails)
I may add to my list from time-to-time. And when a lifestyle session has been claimed, I’ll add a link to the blog post to showcase these adventures.
Your imagination should not stop short when you see my list. Use this as a sounding board to create your own adventure. Refuse to box yourself into traditional. Choose a photo session that will help you live life fully—the beautiful mess it is.
The place where ordinary and everyday meets intentional living? That’s where the magic happens. And you, my dear friend, you deserve magic.
