Indoor lifestyle photos are for families too.

Most people connect indoor lifestyle with newborn photos as that is probably the most common indoor lifestyle session. But it doesn't have to be! Indoor lifestyle photos have their own vibe, like a lazy Sunday morning, and are perfect for families or couples, or anyone who wants to show off in their own space.

When this client contacted me she knew exactly what she wanted. You see, her daughter was born 10 weeks early so they missed out on maternity photos and newborn photos as they spent a good amount of time in the NICU. Her daughter is doing well now at 7 months old and they wanted to make up for missing those photos. She wanted an indoor lifestyle session to capture their family as well as some breastfeeding and milestone photos of their daughter.

In-home or in-studio

Most indoor lifestyle family sessions take place in and around the family's home. It is your home that you've decorated and worked hard on and where your family feels the most like themselves. In the case of this particular indoor lifestyle family session, my family lived part-time in Nashville and part-time in Chattanooga. They wanted a different look than their Chattanooga apartment gave them so we opted to rent a local studio that gave us that in-home vibe.

Have you considered having lifestyle family photos in your home?

One of my favorite photos of my daughter is of her sitting on my living room couch and I've framed it on a wall beside that couch. And you don't have to worry about the whole house being perfect or photo-ready either. Lifestyle family photos can take place all in one room or just a few select rooms. Or, if you want to show off the whole house, we can do all the rooms, the front porch, and the back yard! It is totally up to you. It's your home, it's your family, it's your style, and it's your indoor lifestyle family session.
