Family Lifestyle Portrait: Chronicling Daily Life

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes during a family portrait session?

Peaceful Portraits

How do we get all those peaceful looking photographs of your family when your little ones are so squirmy? The secret lies in the way we use games, activities, and distractions in order to keep your little ones from going "stir-crazy."

Maternity Session

Kristina kindly allowed us to take you behind the scenes during her 4th anniversary / maternity session with her husband and son, and here I'd like to show you what to expect during your session.


This little guy was overtired, battling a cold, and out-of-sorts for most of the session. And that may be one reason why, Kristina and her husband left it to me to take these photographs instead of trying to make it happen with a camera phone.

Time Needed

A lifestyle portrait session doesn't have to take the whole day. It also doesn't have to explore all facets of your family's daily life. I recommend you choose a main theme and have most of your photography take place around that theme. In Kristina's case, the theme was family fun on the bed. Enjoy the show, and please contact us to book your 2019 family portrait session.
