Family Lifestyle Portraits
Lifestyle portrait sessions are fun, they’re about you, your world, the things you love to do and the people you love the most.
I love in home sessions. It is so lovely to go to a beautiful location to shoot, but being in your own space and being relaxed is also a beautiful thing. If you are looking at booking in a newborn lifestyle session I highly recommend doing this in your home.
Babies tend to get very grisly and uncomfortable when they are out in the open and away from their familiar surroundings. I also recommend booking in newborns, babies and young children in for morning sessions as things tend to go south very quickly for little people after 4pm.
I always tell my clients to wear whatever they feel comfortable and beautiful in. As far as colours and patterns go it is best to go with neutral or muted tones especially for newborn and maternity sessions. Bright colours, bold patterns or big logos will make the image very busy, and you want the focus to be on your beautiful pregnant belly or your gorgeous new babies face. I also have a Pinterest board full of outfit inspiration and colour schemes if you'd like to check it out.
What do we wear to our session?
Like I said above, with babies and young children it is best to organise a session for early morning. The timing will also depend on the time of year is and wether or not we are in daylight savings time. But generally before 8.30am if we are outdoors and in-home sessions usually around 10-11am.
For Spring and Summer sessions late afternoon and early evening are the best times to shoot, you get beautiful golden light late in the afternoon and this is the very sought after light photographers are always chasing, it is such a beautiful time of day.
What time of day is best to organise our session?
I give you a sneak peek of your images a day or so after your session and you can expect the rest of your images within 4-6 weeks. depending on the time of year and how busy I am.
How long do we have to wait for our images?
How do we book our session?
Fill out the form on my contact page and I will give you some added information and work out a time and date that will suit. I require a booking retainer which is 50% of the package that you choose at the time of booking to secure your session date. The retainer fee is non-refundable but is transferrable to a new date if for some reason we need to re-schedule. The balance is due to be paid before your session date.
