CT Family LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS

 

 

The value and importance of documenting your family's memories with a lifestyle or portrait session is a message you’ll hear me mention often. As the years pass, how will you remember his quirky raised brow, and the moments he comforts you by holding your hand? The way she twirls her hair when she gets nervous, and the quiet all-knowing glance she gives you when words aren’t necessary? Or the little's way of scrunching up his nose when he giggles, and the tiny blond curls you can’t bring yourself to cut? Whatever the things are that make your family one of a kind, these are the moments I preserve by freezing time though lifestyle photography. Family events and occasions and just the regular everyday ordinary in between moments that make up your life need to be remembered. Things change so quickly, but I've got you covered. If you document them through pictures, they'll be with you forever.

I photograph you + your loved ones in beautifully connected + candid moments because your memories may fade, but your pictures won't.

 

CT LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONs

 

If you've been wondering what lifestyle photography is, but don't really have a clear answer, I like to describe it as somewhere in the middle between completely non-posed documentary photography and fully posed portrait photography. Lifestyle Photography is the intentional documenting of your life, the artful moments in-between, and significant life events, as they unfold, in an largely unscripted, and organic way through artistic imagery. Imagery that's created by using an artful eye, subtle prompts & gentle guidance. By gently directing light, movement, and subjects and combining great location with the best use of color, I create emotive, honest images that better represent the true spirit of you and your family than posed imagery ever could.

 

Lifestyle sessions are the most natural and authentic way to document you and your family for a lifetime with honest, candid moments. What this means for you, stiff posing is not available, but gentle guidance abounds.…activity based or just hanging out doing what you do…...together.

Documenting your most important moments so you never forget them.

Homelife, Nature-Bound or Urban lifestyle sessions at your request. Whatever your thing, I can make it happen. Lifestyle sessions are for the fun at heart and those who take a more spontaneous, in-stride approach to life. This is the time to document your memories and connections; for the littles to be themselves; to show their real smiles and unique personalities!

The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed. - Anne Geddes

Traditional Portrait Sessions

If you are not convinced you would like a Lifestyle Session and prefer a traditional approach, just let me know. Some still prefer the look of posed imagery, and if so, you are in great hands! Or we can always mix it up and do a little of both.

THE PROCESS

1

INITIAL CONSULTATION

Contact me and we'll set up a time to chat over the phone. I will get to know a little bit about you and your family, your ideas and what you'd like to achieve in your session. This is a great time to gather a list of questions to ask me.

2

BOOK YOUR SESSION

When you are ready, you will book your session on the date and time you have chosen. You will also electronically sign your contract, fill out your pre-session questionnaire, and make your session deposit.

3

WELCOME PACKET

Once your session date is confirmed and your deposit has been made, I will send you your electronic welcome packet to look over. This packet includes lots of information on locations, what to wear, what to expect, how I work, and my policies. If you need help planning your session, we will schedule a time to chat so we can collaborate and bring your ideas to life.

4

Pre-session call

If you need additional help styling your session, or have more questions, we will discuss this during your pre-session call. I have many tools to help you at this stage, if you get stuck or are lacking inspiration. At times, I will have my clients make a Pinterest Board for me to comb through so I can hone in on their unique style. This visual walk through of what inspires you helps me make important suggestions about your session.

5

YOUR PHOTO SESSION

Today is the day! Your shoot day, where it all comes together! No stress today. No worrying about the kids or how they will or won't behave. Just let go of your expectations and let me handle it. It will be a great day!

6

image delivery

At the end of our session, I go back to my studio where I choose the best images from your session. They are then color corrected and brightened for viewing, and placed into an online gallery for your viewing and selection. Once you have made your selections, they are retouched and printed or delivered to you digitally.
