I've had this idea for quite some time to start offering "stylized/lifestyle" sessions and my neice Leanne was gracious enough to let me come to their home and try this idea out on my great nieces; Claire and Nora. Our theme for the session was making cookies and between Leanne and I we came up with some great props that were cute but also very meaningful. We had old kitchen utensils, rolling pins, recipes cards and books, etc. that belonged to my mother, as well as some from Leanne's other grandma. I loved seeing Claire and Nora having fun with these things - what a neat way to honor their great grandmothers who are no longer with us!
Anyway, it was fun to get out of my studio and do a session in the girls own home. I loved working with the natural light in Leanne and Jon's house, it was perfect! I have many ideas for other stylized sessions with anyone who may be interested. Some ideas running through my head are doing chores with Grandpa on the farm, dress up tea party (this would make for a great indoor or outdoor session!), little fireman in my pedal car firetruck at a firestation or any downtown alley way with old brick, planting a garden/flowers (with a trip to the greenhouse!), vintage back to school (outdoor) session, etc., etc. If you would be interested in a such a session and/or want to brainstorm some ideas with me, give me a call at 605-661-3812!
