I love being invited into a family's home during such an exciting time like pregnancy. This sweet family will soon be forever changed--they are now 3 but will soon be 4!
I offer lifestyle photography sessions because it is what I enjoy the most. To me "lifestyle" means a photo session that is a glimpse into the everyday life of a family. I don't want cheesy poses, or unrealistic settings. I want to include the whole family (including pets), and I want to include the home. Lifestyle family photography is somewhere between family photo-journalism (a fly on the wall approach) and portrairure (posed photography). I try to create the setting for a family to act naturally and enjoy being with each other, and then I capture those moments and connections.
I look forward to returning to this family's home in a few weeks to meet their newest member!
My pregnancy photography sessions are available as add-on sessions to either birth or newborn photography sessions. I find this to be a great way to get to know a family before joining them in birth or the sensitive early postpartum period. Plus it gives us fun "before" shots!
Maternity sessions are best scheduled for around the 37th week of pregnancy, and can include multiple looks and family members.
