In Home Ottawa Lifestyle Photography: Now more than ever, our homes are the centre of our lives.  We have worked at home, played at home, and learned at home. Wanting to photograph memories in our own homes makes perfect sense. 

A lifestyle family session is ideal for families who would love to have a collection of photographs that captures how their family spends their time together. It’s also a great way to photograph families at their most comfortable. Everyone is most at ease when they’re spending time at home together with their family.

In home Ottawa lifestyle photography sessions are centred around a few of a family’s favourite activities or their home’s spaces. Preparing food, reading books in a big arm chair, cuddling by the fire, or creating art at the kitchen table.  

I suggest these sessions for families that love candid, unposed photos of their family enjoying time together. Posed photos will always have their place on my walls too but the magic we created in this family’s home was beautiful.

Before their session we planned which rooms we would photograph them in and the activities they wanted to include. For this in home Ottawa lifestyle photography session we focused on the relaxation this busy family enjoys together when at home. Their home is very bright with large windows so we had many rooms we could use for their session.

I started their session on the main level of their home. The hub of activity for most families is centred around their main floor. While the boys enjoyed reading time with their parents I quietly photographed them from the end of the room. I’d like to think that I was so quiet for a moment that they even forgot I was there.

I have enjoyed photographing this family since their boys were babies so I know them all quite well. This was our first in home session so it was nice for the boys to be the ones to show me around. They loved showing me their favourite books and the toys they enjoy most while at home. It was a joy to photograph their family’s beautiful memories in their own house.
