Powell WY Family Photographer | So…just what can a lifestyle session be? The easy answer is that it can be anything you want! That’s the beauty of this type of session. There are no limitations. It can be anything you like.
I shot a little storytelling session with my boys while they painted their yearly canvas art. It’s a tradition I started last year. I give them a blank canvas and let them go wild. If this session were in your home, I would not pose you at all. I would be standing back, shooting while you do your thang 😉
Sean was gung ho. He had a plan, he picked his colors, he was focused. Connor, on the other hand, had to be bribed with popsicles. He even gave up at one point. I’m pretty sure you can tell what image tells that part of the story. But, at the end of the day, I have 2 pieces of art to hang in their rooms. Each year the details get a little clearer, a bit less messy. While Connor needed to be talked into it this year, I’m pretty sure that next year he’ll jump at the chance to paint. I am excited to see Sean’s little house look more like ours and his boy that he painted look more like him. I was shocked, to be honest, at how well he painted our pup!
Moral of the story: The beauty of a lifestyle session is that it captures your family and freezes this moment in time. We can bake cookies, play in the sprinkler, BBQ some burgers. Or, we can read books, sit on the couch, and smile. Let your imagination run wild. And I’ll turn it into a story.
