What is a “Lovin’ Life” Session?

Lifestyle photography is simply photography that captures a few moments in the life of your family. It’s casual and fun and presents a picture of what your life is like at this particular moment in time. Unlike portraits, which show what you look like, these sessions will show who you are and what your life was like.

Some time ago, I noticed that the pictures that were the most interesting to me were the ones that showed me interacting with my family and friends. It’s fun to look at old cars, former houses, and especially fun to tease your parents about their outdated clothes and hairstyles! Most of us like to remember past times, and friends and family who are no longer with us.

With Lifestyle photography, you have the opportunity to give your children a valuable gift. In the years to come, they will be able to look at these images and know that they were loved and cherished by their family. They can re-live the fun and remember the love by looking at the images again and again.

 

My Story

When I was 12, I lost my dad to Hodgkin’s disease. He was only 33 years old. I have two younger sisters. They were 9 and 5 at the time of my father’s death. As the first child, there were lots pictures of me as a baby and I am fortunate to have many of me and my dad. Even though he was the photographer in the family, my mom managed to get quite a few pictures of me and my dad. Then along came my sister, Becky. There are some pictures of Dad and Becky, but not nearly as many. Linda came along a few years later, and as you might expect, there are very few pictures of Linda as a baby at all!

Several years after my father died, Linda began looking for pictures of her with Dad. As hard as we searched, we could not find even one picture of Linda and Dad. We finally found one where someone had taken a picture of Dad taking a picture of Linda on her birthday. Linda doesn’t have many memories of our father. What she would give for some pictures showing her how much he loved her and what life was like when she was little!

At the beginning of my career as a photographer, I thought very hard about why I wanted to be a photographer. Very high on that list of reasons was my desire to provide families with a glimpse of their lives that they could keep and cherish forever.
