Location, Location! A Lifestyle Photography Session

As a photographer I am constantly finding locations for a perfect photoshoot session. I catalog them in my head, make note of different set ups and plan to visit again as soon as a client comes along that will make the location come to life. A close friend of mine was visiting from out of state with her two blue-eyed children in tow and I knew it was a perfect time to revisit a local farm that has the most amazing birch trees and weathered barn. In all seriousness I have been waiting for years to photograph these birch trees and my friend’s cutest little 18 month old girl was the ideal person to make this on-location photoshoot a true success.

A New Type Of Photo Session: A Slice Of Life

Family photography is evolving to more than just the traditional portrait. It’s always nice to have a perfect portrait to look back on and reflect on a specific time and place, but what if you had high quality photos of how your family lived their daily lives. All the silliness, crying, climbing, jumping, spinning and running that makes up your everyday, sometimes chaotic life. Yes, it’s not always glamorous and many times it’s ridiculous, but that is real life. We all have camera phones and try to capture those fleeting moments but with low light or fast moving subjects the pictures never become worthy of a second or third look. I know I have had moments when I thought, “now this is a photo” and I was holding my child on one hip, carrying multiple bags and then trying to open the door to the house. Ridiculous, but if I had that image now, I would love to see how I was “living” during that stage of my life. Maybe ten years from now I would reflect back to that old house or my son wearing his favorite shoes or hat, so many memories captured in one image.

This new session offering is called “A Slice Of Life” and will be a 1 hour session and cost $325. Included in this cost is 5 digital images of your choice, photography time, editing and a private album to view, order and share. This is a spin off of a session many photographers offer called “Day In The Life”, which requires 4-6 hours of your time and over $1,000.00. I believe that so many families would cherish these photos that can be attainable during a “A Slice Of Life” session. So who’s ready to capture all the “fun” that makes your family unique? Have questions? I would love to hear from you.  Email me at:  nicole@nbphotog.com

More Than Just A Family Mini Session

This family mini session was full of fun, dropping temperatures and a lot of wind, but you wouldn’t know it from the photos we were able to capture in just a 25 minute mini session.  The chosen location was full of unique backdrops which made for great photo set ups.  This fall to winter shoot was a perfect way to kick off the holiday photo season. I had scouted the location prior to the photo session so I had a general plan of where we were going to start and with the 25 minutes timeline the location had all these different areas to discover only a few feet away from each other. Did I mention the wind? The wind coming off the Connecticut river was pretty intense but luckily the sun peeked out at the end of the session to warm things up and end on a fun and smiling photo session.

View All The Fun Of An Extended Family Photo Session

It takes a village, right? Well that is certainly true with a family photography session.  The Auger family was full of fun and I loved their willingness to help make silly faces and gestures behind the scenes to create great smiles and laughs from the youngest family members. There is so much more to a photo session than that one perfect group shot, I love to capture the in-between genuine moments that highlight the entire photo session experience. My style for this 1 hour family photo session was a mixture of both portrait and lifestyle photography and by the time the session was wrapping up I felt like an honorary member of the family.

21 Images That Will Have You Booking A Fall Trip To Cape Cod

Summer is the most popular time of the year for travelers to enjoy the sun, surf and food of Cape Cod, but I prefer the Fall. I no longer have to fight traffic, wait in long lines at restaurants or struggle to finding a spot for my chair on the beach. If you want to enjoy the cute shops, great food and walks on the beach, the fall season is for you too. I traveled to Chatham, Cape Cod, which still has the majority of their shops and restaurant opens during this time. My favorite beaches transform into a private oasis with an occasional dog walker going by. The weather can vary, but if planned well you can still enjoy a day in the 60’s, which is perfect to me.

Chatham is located at the “elbow” of the Cape Cod. If looking at any map you can see that the land actually depicts an arm and the “elbow” is exactly where Chatham falls. It was settled by the English in 1664 and became a community of fishing, whaling and shipping. Since the town is at such a critical point of navigation by sea the Chatham Lighthouse was established in 1808 by President Thomas Jefferson. You can also visit the Chatham Light and enjoy the beach that has endured many storms in its day. The historical feel of the town still exists in the architecture today.  It is this historic charm that keeps me visiting several times a year and makes me appreciate its beauty all year round.
