What is the difference between a Lifestyle Session and a Premium Session?

Lifestyle sessions incorporate both traditional photography and candid shots into a one-hour session so that clients get both styles of photography in one short session.   Candid sessions take place at an agreed-upon outdoor location between 8:00 am and 10:00 am or just before Sunset.  The first 15 minutes of the session are spent capturing more traditional images in various poses, looking at the camera, and being instructed what to do and how to position.  The remaining 45 minutes are spent capturing the family interacting in a more natural manner.  I may suggest the family do certain things such as hold hands, whisper to one-another, tickle, or have them participate in playing ball, climbing trees, etc.  Candid sessions are great for portrait photos and also enable me to capture a small tidbit of the family's story.  This type of session is great for annual photo sessions, maternity, engagement, etc.   Candid sessions are more scripted than Premium Sessions as we have limited time together. 

Premium Lifestyle sessions are perfect for larger families, extended families, and those that just want a little extra time. This session allows time for clothing changes and sometimes even location changes (time permitting). This type of session also includes more images and there are always LOADS of images that I sift through to tell your story.  I find great passion in finding beauty in each subject's personality and having a little extra time together really helps that come out in your photos.   Sometimes that beauty is found in a random hug from your toddler, the rolling of eyes from your teenager, crying tantrums, laughing, etc.  The more real the better it is...gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. :)  That is what is so beautiful about documenting REAL moments.  My goal is to tell your family's story so that you can look back on the images years from now and remember how blissful it was.  Even when times are tough, you have sleepless nights, you don't know what to do with your teens, etc...these moments will always be something to treasure.
