Why Lifestyle Sessions? | Pittsburgh Family Photographer

When my children are grown, I want us to remember what our life was like. I want to show them photos of us intereacting and having fun! I love that lifestyle sessions capture the beauty of a regular day.

All too often we lose focus on what is important. Think about what is truly important to you. What does your family love doing together? Let's capture the real you during your photo session! I think when our children grow up they will appreciate having these types of photos and memories of a great day with their family.

Lifestyle sessions are relaxed, authentic and natural. These sessions provide an oppertunity for you and your family to slow down and enjoy your time together as a family. It's about seizing the day, creating new memories to be able to look back at and remember your life.

I recently had the opportunity to photograph my friend, an amazing photographer, and her two amazing boys. They enjoy cooking, wrestling, playing board games and building legos together. So that's exactly what we did! We followed the boys lead and had a fun morning!

I may make occasional posing suggestions like, could you put your hands on your lap or could you switch places to have more light on your face.

The children enjoy playing and often think of ideas of what we should do next! I love that!! 

Please watch a 70 second video from our two hour mom and me lifestyle session below.

I want to slow down and treasure the simple moments in my day with my children and family. I'd love to capture the everyday beauty of your family too! Please contact me about booking a lifestyle session.
