What is a Lifestyle Session?
Lifestyle sessions with couples has become one of my new favorite genres to photograph. Being able to hang out with a couple in their home can be so relaxing. There’s something to be said about having morning coffee or even pancakes and fresh fruit. It is so less stressful for the couple. Some people are very much intimidated being in front of the camera thinking they have to produce a fake smile. Even if that’s not really how we do things. Coming into your home becomes a time where we’re just friends hanging out capturing some fun filled amazing moments of joy. Lifestyle sessions are a great way to be able to preserve your joy and personalities in an image and cherish for generations to come. It’s definitely a way of remembering what love and life was when you were young. Before having children, before taking life too seriously when mortgages and such become a priority. It’s a way of bringing you back to a time when you had no cares in the world and you could stay in bed on a Sunday morning enjoying each other without any interruptions.
Of course, lifestyle sessions do not mean we have to photograph you in bed if that’s not your thing. We can always capture you hanging out at the cottage playing scrabble or curled up together on the couch reading a book. Lifestyle sessions are all about capturing you as a couple being you. Whatever “you” is.
Studio Lifestyle Sessions
Arya and Kate were one such couple who actually came into my studio for their couples session rather than in their own home, but we had just as much fun. They shared moments of laughter and tenderness all without realizing that there was an extra person hanging out with them. The lighting was amazing and helped sculpt their connection to each other. It was all too apparent how happy these two are together and it was so infectious. It’s the most rewarding part of my job. Capturing the connections between couples. Kate and Arya were so sweet and loving towards one another I couldn’t stop smiling myself.
Take a look and see for yourself.
