SESSION INSPIRATION & IDEAS
Lifestyle photography sessions are designed to depict a day in your life doing what you enjoy with the ones you love. Whether you’re going on an adventure or telling a story of day at home, a photography session like this is sure to be full of emotion and fun. The greatest part about these sessions is that they are unique to you. The key to planning your session is to incorporate activities, ways to interact.
If you’re feeling super adventurous, use this photo opportunity to learn something new! How about renting some paddle boards, snow shoes, or off-road vehicles? Some of the most exciting sessions get people to break out of their comfort zone. Think back on your own favorite memories.
5 TIPS ON WHAT TO WEAR DURING A LIFESTYLE SESSION
Always wear clothing you feel comfortable + confident in.
Layer up, especially when working outside.
Bring multiple outfits. There’s no silly limit to the numbers of time you can change your outfit here.
Coordinate clothing with others. Think complimentary colors and tones.
Avoid busy patterns. These can be distracting in photos.
Embrace the short attention spans, grass stains, and dogs licking your face mid-frame. These portraits are not about everyone sitting up tall and nailing the perfect smile at the camera, they’re about your silly awesome life. Let the kids be kids and their personalities will shine through the photograph.
Years from now, these images will bring the biggest smile to your face, I promise.
After your photo session you will be able to view your best images through a private online gallery. From here, you can download, share, and print + display them. I’m a firm believer in printing photographs and beautifully displaying them on your wall, a constant reminder of these good old days.
