Lifestyle sessions take place in your home. These are what I like to refer to as "story telling" sessions as I do very little posing or directing during a lifestyle session, they are all about the connection with you and your family, capturing real life moments. Family photos, documenting your pregnancy and welcoming a new baby are all great times for a lifestyle session, but these are open for anything!
The benefit of a lifestyle session is the more relaxed and carefree nature of the shoot. Kids that otherwise might not do well with a traditional session sometimes can really shine in these kinds of pictures as you get a lot more natural smiles and cute moments that you would not normally see with a traditional session.
