We had grand plans to take photos in a scenic outdoor area in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. That is, until we saw the forecast that week. Dailey suggested that we take some photos of she and Walker in their home since it would be raining all weekend. These photos would be the perfect way to remember their time in North Carolina during Walker’s residency. The only lifestyle photos I had ever taken were newborn lifestyle; however, I have always wanted to try a couple’s lifestyle session! Even more exciting for me was having the opportunity to do a lifestyle session in North Carolina because destination sessions and weddings are so fun!
In case you haven’t heard of a lifestyle session, it just means that the photographer comes to your home to take photos of you as your life happens. If you’re like me, you may feel awkward posing for photos in a crowded space where people are staring at you. In all honesty, they probably couldn’t care less what you’re doing and most likely think you’re adorable anyway. At least that’s what I tell myself when I have to be on the other side of the camera. 😉
As you can see, Dailey and Walker look pretty comfortable. I think being in a familiar environment helps you feel more relaxed in front of the camera. Lifestyle sessions could be a great option if you want photos in your home or if you want a session that’s a little more private than a bustling downtown. I am seriously obsessed with lifestyle sessions now! If you have a lot of natural light in your house, let me take your pictures! haha. I would love to know what you think of my first couple’s lifestyle session. Tell me what you think in the comments!
