Lifestyle or studio? Which is best for you?

I find that lifestyle portraits are an ideal way to portray the raw emotion of the moment. Candid images, unposed, artistically capture things just as they are; real moments frozen in time for you and your family to enjoy over and over. They may additionally include shots of mom and dad, siblings, and even the family pet interacting with baby! Lifestyle sessions do not require as much time as a posed session, and are ideal for fussy babies who have difficulty falling asleep. A typical lifestyle session lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on baby.

Posed sessions may take a bit more time and elbow grease than lifestyle, but it’s well worth the work! With a few props and cooperation from baby, posed sessions result in images that will make the whole family, friends, and Facebook buds go Ga-Ga. Cute hats, baskets, and blankets surround your little one while I capture Bub slumbering in doll-like poses on comfy pillows. A typical posed session may last anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, and generally requires cooperation from mom and dad. I require a minimum of 2 hours per session to ensure I get the best (and most adorable) results.
