Lifestyle sessions are my favorite sessions!
They are longer sessions of app. 1.5 hours and they always take place in your own home or on an outdoor location of your choice. You can book a lifestyle session for all kinds of portraits: Kids, family, couples, maternity and newborn.
During your session I won’t direct you a lot. I will sometimes ask you to move around according to where the best natural light is, or I may suggest some things you can do together, which I know will work well in photos, but that’s really it.
I will make sure to take a good mix of different portraits in order to create as many different images as possible. I follow a shoot list which guarantees that I get all the important shots I need to create your story, but I also like to just go with the flow and capture whatever happens.
In home lifestyle sessions are all about fun, love and connection. Your portraits will be made in a natural and documentary style where focus will be on the connection between you as a family, but I will also include some more classic shots.
You can play, read a book, have a tickle fight, throw the kids up in the air (and grab them again!), laugh, and – of course – add lots of cuddles and kisses to it all. The sole purpose of an in home session is this: Be together and have fun!
If you prefer to do your session on an outdoor location, I recommend that you choose a place which means something special to you. It can be the local park or any other place which you and your family feel attached to.
Please note that newborn sessions and sessions with little children who can’t yet sit by themselves always take place at home.
Kids sessions are slightly more traditional compared to lifestyle sessions. They are perfect when you just want a few good portraits of your children.
Kids sessions are outdoor sessions of up to one hour which take place on a specific outdoor location. They can be booked for individual and group portraits of up to three children.
Portraits from kids session will still be very natural and spontaneous, but unlike lifestyle sessions I will focus less on the environment, story telling and connection. We will simply create some beautiful and natural portraits of your children.
Please note that children must be able to sit by themselves.
Fresh 48 is a new kind of portrait session which I would like to start offering to my clients. It’s a short family/newborn session which takes place in your room at the hospital 1-2 days after your baby has been born.
Fresh 48 sessions are short sessions of app. 30 minutes, during which I will simply document those first and unique hours together with your newborn. There will be no posing, no need to dress up etc. I will capture you just as you are.
I am currently looking for a family who would like to do a Fresh 48 session for free in exchange for giving me permission to publish the photos. If you are giving birth in Florence within the next couple of months feel free to send me an e-mail for more information.
