What is Studio Lifestyle Photography?

Long gone are the days of stiffly posed families in front of a boring studio backdrop. I’m so glad that studio photography has come such a long way. As a portrait photographer, I love being able to offer all the amenities of a studio while still being able to capture your family’s love for each other and everyone’s unique personality. There’s no stiff posing here! 

Let me share more about studio lifestyle photography and if it might be right for your busy, growing family. I hope you are pleasantly surprised by what you learn. 

Lifestyle Photography 

Lifestyle photography is about documenting your growing family for you and turning it into heirloom portrait artwork for you to enjoy every day. During the session, I offer gentle posing and guidance, but I primarily focus on encouraging your family to have fun and engage with each other while documenting each moment with my camera. Your family portraits will feel effortless and carefree. 

Busting the Studio Photography  Myth

Studio photography doesn’t mean that we stiffly arrange your family in front of a backdrop and snap a few images. While the studio offers a comfortable, private environment with classic backdrops and settings, the real magic is your loved ones! We’ll plan the perfect session around your family to be able to relax and enjoy spending time together. I’ll just happen to be there, capturing every smile, laugh, and candid moment. 

What to Expect During Your Studio Photography Session

There are a few things you can expect during your studio photography session. 

Guidance over posing – I’ll offer gentle posing and guidance during the session, but once we’re in session, I like to go with the flow and let the candid, loving moments happen. 

Relaxed, comfortable environment – In the privacy of the temperature-controlled studio, you and your family can relax and be yourselves during the session.

Convenient amenities – The studio offers everything we need throughout the session right at our fingertips. 

Lots of laughter – Expect lots of laughter and joy throughout the session. It’s all about enjoying the time with your loved ones. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies – Yes, chocolate chips. I started offering this as a treat for the kids, but it turns out everyone enjoys a nice cookie after the session. It’s a sweet way to celebrate the session. 

Product Samples – During a studio session, you get to see samples of wall art, custom-designed albums, and portrait boxes right in the studio. And you see an example of my own family portrait gallery as you come up my staircase to the studio. Read the blog to learn about all the products available to you.

As you can see, the convenience of the studio with my lifestyle photography techniques means we can create and document beautiful memories with your family. The best part? You’ll be able to relive this day and moment in time for decades to come with your professional portrait artwork.
