Your home is your sanctuary, the place where you rest your head at night and raise your children. To be invited inside your personal space to document the new life is a task I do not take lightly. Sarah & Frank welcomed two beautiful twin daughters home with eldest daughter Scarlet. This is their story and some insights into lifestyle photography through my eyes.
In-Home Lifestyle Photography: What is it?
Simply put, in-home lifestyle photography is a style of photography whereby we remove the camera and posing from the equation. It is meant to be an inside, candid look at your life or “lifestyle”, going about your day like I am not there. My job would be to capture these intimate moments as they unfold, placing myself into position to not disturb what is happening. In short, I am hired to be the fly on the wall.
Why Choose A Lifestyle Session?
Most people are drawn to one or the other. In comparison, the studio offers a more traditional session with props and accessories, backdrops, and sometimes creative lighting. One reason to choose Lifestyle over Traditional is because you prefer the look. Firstly, there isn’t any posing. Secondly, there aren’t any props. Lifestyle is a very clean and minimal style of photography. There’s been a growing trend towards lifestyle photography thanks to popular social media accounts depicting it. In Sarah and Frank’s case, it was also more convenient for me to come to them. Naturally, with a renovated home, you will also want to have your efforts showcased and remembered in the photos.
Photographing everyone together as a family is always the priority. When the excitement wears off, it is time to focus on the babies and siblings. Scarlet happened to love the camera!
