Did you wait too long to schedule a fall family photo session? No worries, with this kind of session you can do it any time of the year!

Much to the dismay of the people that contacted me for Fall photos in the last week of October, my schedule for outdoor photos is full for 2021! However, did you know I offer in-home lifestyle family photo sessions!? This kind of session is awesome for so many reasons!


For one, this kind of session can take place in the middle of winter or any time of the year! No need to stress about how the weather will be on the day of your session or trying to predict peak fall foliage or spring blossoms! With a lifestyle family photo session in your home there is no need to try and predict the perfect time to do them! This includes the time of day, we can do it in the morning or anytime in the afternoon so no need to worry about a 6pm sunset session where you think your kids might melt down because it is too late!


Second, there is no need to stress about finding the perfect coordinating (but not matchy-matchy) outfits for every member of the family! For me, this is absolutely the number one reason my family does not do traditional portrait sessions! I always hire a photographer to do a fun lifestyle session at our home instead! Save your money and your sanity and wear what you love and what you are comfortable in! Seriously, you can even let the kids pick their own clothes.


Third, there is no reason to even worry about how your kids will behave! As a Mom to three kids I 100% totally understand when Moms worry about how their kids will cooperate for family photos. This is also why I choose to do a lifestyle session vs a portrait session. Although I will capture some fun semi posed family photos, for the majority of the session I encourage everyone to just be themselves!

Since this is my favorite kind of photo session, I could literally go on and on about why this is a wonderful alternative to a traditional portrait session, but you can click on the blog posts above to read more about in home sessions and scroll down below to click and see a ton of examples from some of my favorite lifestyle photo sessions!

So no worries if you missed out on scheduling your fall family photos this year! I urge you to consider the stress free alternative of a session at your home!
