It is no secret I LOVE what I do. Like REALLY, REALLY LOVE what I do. Lifestyle photography is such a crucial part telling your story. It is a way to celebrate life and love though portraits. I like to say that each time you come to see me, we are adding a new chapter to your story. Adding to that legacy that will be passed down from generation to generation.
Gone are the days of cookie cutter photography sessions. I create one of a kind, lifestyle photography experiences. No two sessions are the same. I call my experiences an adventure. The “M” family had a grand adventure. We ran all over the forest, sang songs, wrestled with Dad and of course that was lots of loving on Mama. I remember the first time this family came to me and these boys were SO shy. But this time, this time was different my friends. It makes my heart so happy to see how they have grown and how comfortable they were with me this time around.
There is nothing worse than the stiff, awkward photos you see where everyone is clearly uncomfortable and forcing a smile. Tell me, are those the memories you want to have? What you will have to show your grandkids and their grandkids? I know I don’t. And that is why my clients choose me. My lifestyle photography sessions are all about living in the moment and capturing it, whatever it may be. How your family is in THIS moment, all the other stuff, it doesn’t matter.
I spend a lot of time before my sessions getting to know my clients. I want to know what they love, what they enjoy doing together, how their children tend to behave towards strangers. Armed with all of this information, I create an experience, one that focuses on things that I know the family enjoys and loves. All of this just adds to the over all feel of my authentic lifestyle photography sessions.
I feel so very strongly about the fact that life must be celebrated. This kind of life. NOT the staged, posed kind of life. I want to give you real, authentic moments; memories. Images that make you tear up or burst into fits of laughter when you look back at them. I want to give THIS to you Mama. If this sounds like your jam, I would love to chat. If you have already booked a session with me, YAY! You will be getting so much information on how to prepare from me real soon. I am here for you every step of the way. If you want to get a jump start on preparing, or if you want a peak into my session prep you can download my free client style guide here.
It is not lost on me what an honor and privilege it is to be chosen for your lifestyle family photography session. I am humbled to be able to call this a job. Celebrating life and love. Helping families forget about the chaos that is life, even for just a little while, and focusing on their love for one another is the best thing ever if you ask me.
Me too — I can’t wait to start creating YOUR perfect EJP portrait experience!
