Chicago Family Photographers

Looking for a Chicago family photographer?  I would love to hear from you!

Lifestyle Session at Home

I absolutely LOVE how this gallery turned out!  Here are my favorites from this lifestyle session and as you can see I had a hard time culling the session down!  This gorgeous home is located in Naperville, Illinois and had the most beautiful natural light.  Every room had large windows which allowed light to filter in beautifully.  I hope you enjoy this family’s gallery!  To see more of this adorable family check out this recent blog post!

Your home session

Lifestyle sessions are relaxed and a unique experience for clients.  It is a great way to document all of the little things around your home that you will one day forget.  Looking back at these images in 20 years, you will reminisce about decor, toys, bedroom designs, furniture, etc.  They really are very special sessions that capture your family in an authentic and real way.  I keep my sessions free flowing with a focus on simplicity, connection and storytelling. I have the wonderful opportunity to capture photographs of a newborn and family interacting within their very first environment, their home.

What to expect

When I first arrive, I will ask for a tour of your home.  Here we will chat, go over some of the details you’d like me to capture and get to know your family.  I’ll take some test shots in each room and get familiar with your space.  At every in home session I let the babies or kids take the lead.  Most of the time the story naturally unfolds if you let them tell it!  I give direction and guidance and will ‘gently pose’ your family in the best light.  I will have you look at each other, look at your kids, and prompt you with different stories and activities.  My goal is to create an environment for connections to happen naturally.  I love to start sessions in the master bedroom and then move into the nursery and kids rooms and then main living areas.
