Lifestyle photography is so much fun. Not only is it a relief on parents (especially new parents), but it allows me to capture a family in its natural environment. For those of you who don’t know what lifestyle photography is…it’s where I come out to your home and capture the session there in the comfort of your own surroundings. What that also means, is that new mommies and daddies don’t have to pack up their days old newborn and tote them to a studio! Really, it’s the best of both worlds.
A Beautiful Session in the Comfort of Their Home
Getting to know and work with this family was an absolute joy. Mom and dad are both lawyers- but were quick to let me know that their love of fun far outweighs that which their professional titles suggest. They met in law school and the rest is, as they say, history! Little Harper Elle is their first, so they wanted to make sure to get some beautiful and minimalistic images of their first family session.
I am in LOVE with their home, which offered so many wonderful spots full of natural lighting. Perfect for an indoor session! We made sure to get a few images in her nursery as well. I can only imagine the emotional surge that these two will feel as they look back on these images in the future. Time is relentless, endlessly marching on. But as a photographer, we are given a special gift of stopping time in it’s unrelenting tracks. What an honor it is to document such a beautiful time in family’s lives!
As an Expert Award Winning Newborn Chicago Photographer, I am blessed to work with and get to know so many amazing families!
